We are so lucky to have such awesome clients. As super-human as we may seem sometimes, we do get worn out after shooting double-wedding weekends. Running around like a lunatic for 12 hours while carrying at least 15 lbs of crap the entire time, does eventually take its toll. We LOVE our job, but holy crap, it can be exhausting! We met up with these two fabulous people on a Sunday afternoon, after shooting weddings on both Friday and Saturday, and we were feeling all sorts of run down; but, they were so patient with our tired asses, and so awesome to work with, that we eventually perked right up and busted out some amazing creative lighting!! Seriously, I’m so happy with the out-of-the-box lighting we’ve been using lately…it’s a good thing that I have Ben to keep me from getting stuck in a rut. He’s constantly changing things up. :)

Stephanie and Chris are both HUGE fans of the Bills, so we did our best to incorporate some of good ‘ol Ralph Wilson Stadium into their session!

This one is SO fun!

We did a bunch of different shots at the ticket booths…this was Ben’s take on it, and although I did like the shots I took, I LOVED this one of his so much more.

Awesome creative lighting…a wickedly cool shot (if you’re a Bills fan).

Then, we headed over to one of my favorite little parks.  I honestly have no idea what it’s called, but it has this awesome blue bridge, so I just refer to it as “the park with the cool blue bridge…”

There’s actually a bunch of awesome bridges in this park, which is why I heart it so much.

Couldn’t resist using this fence…there’s just something so fab about a gritty chain link fence.
