Aisha and Matt at Springlake Winery in Lockport NY

When I met Aisha and Matt the first time for engagement photos, I was still pretty new in Buffalo. Honestly, engagement sessions were still a little bit scary for me because I didn’t feel as comfortable with it as am I now. Aisha had asked me if we could shoot at Glen Park in Williamsville, NY which is basically a beautiful waterfall with a little bit of park around it. My favorite photo of the day was them standing on top of the waterfall, which you can see here

The wedding day started at the Hyatt Place very close to Glen Park actually. I was able to go back and forth between Aisha and Matt since they were both staying in the hotel. Their two dogs that I already met about a year ago for the engagement photos were getting more and more excited. Looks like they knew something big was going on. 

At Spring Lake Winery the setting sun was glimpsing through the trees and lit up the ceremony in an almost magic way. I couldn’t have asked for more interesting lighting! Steve from Saxman Slim was playing for the procession and we had just enough sun after the ceremony to take some photos on the railroad track that happens to be right behind the vineyard.
