Wedding Ceremony | Blessed Sacrament Church

Wedding Reception | Banchetti by Rizzo’s

Once again, I had the pleasure of photographing a lovely couple, Jenna and Casey, as the celebrated their love during a ceremony at the Blessed Sacrament Church, in Tonawanda.  It was a beautiful, sunny day as things kicked off with the bride’s getting ready.  We began at her house, which provided me with another opportunity to work in small spaces and with limited light J  Actually this is a good thing, because it means I get to work on one of the aspects of photography that is challenging and forces me to think creatively.  I need to be able to walk into a room, look for the light source (if there is any) and picture in my mind what the photograph can look like.  There are many aspects of photography that I am continuously

working on, but this one, limited light, I think is key.  If I can improve my technical skills here, and find my own style, I believe I will have a much better tool for mastering the other nuances in the photographic arena.

Anyway, back to the couple and their day.  Jenna and Casey were going to have their first look during the Ceremony, so I decided to get some shots of the girls beforehand, and I’d do the guys later.  It took some convincing to get the bride and her bridesmaids out into the grass behind the house, but I really didn’t see any other way we could get it done.  Sometimes, I feel like I need to bring an assortment of flat shoes with me so I can avoid the hassle of girls not wanting to walk in heels in grass…..OYI!

The ceremony was not so short and simple (as they should be), so I needed to move onto the wedding party shots quickly.  Buffalo, NY has an abundance of good photographic locations, and this couple decided that Baird Point, on the University at Buffalo North Campus, was where they wanted their creatives.  It was the first time I’ve been at this location, and I must say I’m very pleased with the results.  We partied the night away at Banchetti by Rizzo’s.  I had a wonderful time working with Jenna and Casey and I wish them all the best for the future!
