Heather and Jim are one of our fabulous 2012 couples! They are getting married next July, and we are so excited to be a part of their wedding day!! We met up with them and their extremely adorable son, Benjamin, at the park right across the street from our house in the Village of Hamburg. :)

They are both super enthusiastic about photography, so we knew it was going to be a fun session. Working with couples and families who love and appreciate photography as much as we do, makes us LOVE our job. There is nothing in the world we’d rather do than spend a gorgeous day outside, hang out with awesome peeps, and create some photo memories for them that will last a lifetime. It brings us so much joy to do what we do, and our lives are so much richer for all of the amazing people (like this wonderful little family) we’ve been fortunate enough to meet along the way!

So, we definitely had to start our session on the playground…no question about it.

I absolutely LOVE this sequence of Benjamin and his daddy….so cute!
Benjamin was pretty shy at first, but before too long, he was the world’s biggest ham.
After our many fun adventures in the park, it was time for Benjamin to go hang out with his Grandpa for the evening!  Heather and Jim did a quick outfit change, and we headed over to the Hamburg Historical Society for the “engagement” segment of our session.  ;)  We had passed by this building a million times, and always said that it would make a great shoot location, so we were psyched to finally be able to shoot there!
This is definitely one of my favorites.  Heather = super cute.  
After the Historical Society, we headed on over to a section of 18 Mile Creek that we fondly refer to as “North Creek.”  I’m not entirely sure what it’s actually called, but we go there a lot in the summer to walk Lily.  You can catch some killer sunsets here, which is what we were hoping for, and we definitely got a pretty good one.  ;)
Our last stop for the evening was the little mini-park (it’s not really a park, I guess), right in the Village of Hamburg.  The gazebo always looks super cool lit up at night, so we thought adding our own lighting to that would make a fantastic combination.  I love, love, love the way these turned out!!

Heather and Jim – thanks so much for spending some time with us!! It was so great to get to know you guys and Benjamin a little bit! Now that we know how amazing all of you are, we are even MORE psyched to be a part of your wedding day! Thank you a million times over for your trust and your patience – it means the world to us. Much love to all of you!! – J + B :)

    Their little boy is seriously adorable :). I love that shot of the two of them looking through the glass of the green house? Very cool!
