[DJ and Di: the big day]

DJ and Di are much to down to earth to ever admit that their wedding was incredible, but to me it was one of my favorites to date. I can't say enough about a wedding that reflected the bride and groom from the readings, to the food and with laughter and lightheartedness sprinkled throughout. A wedding can be such an overwhelming and over done event, so much so that the couple becomes lost within the event. Thankfully most of the people who hire me don't follow that path! 

 In any case, DJ and Di wanted to have a "West Side Wedding" and that they did- from their home to the ceremony to the reception site was a total of maybe 5 blocks, with walking strongly encouraged. Guests were encouraged to stop and notice the buildings and were given a little history along the way. The ceremony and reception were held at both locations of the Karpeles Manuscript Museum, reflecting their love for literature. And DJ's passion for food was evident in both the amazing cheese selections and Lloyd Taco dinner. Enough from me.....take a look!

Little girls at age ten....i'm currently enduring one now, and it is quite an adventure to be certain. There are days when she is so sweet and carefree, and other days when she blows my mind with her wisdom.  And then there are the glimpses into teenagedom.  *sigh*.  Mary is a close friend to my daughter and is one of the sweetest girls I know.  She has such a sweet laugh and a lot of that carefree nature that hopefully won't disappear in years to come.  Such a fun time to be a girl!

[megan and john]


So many things to be thankful for!  I just love the people I get to work with...especially when I get to see them numerous times over the years.  Being trusted by families to document such important life events means so much to me!  This is the third time I've been able to work with Megan, from her sister's wedding to a family session, and now her engagement. We had such a fun time down on the waterfront.  And, apparently, this is my 201st post of the blog!  It's hard to believe I've been at it this long.  Thanks to everyone who has been part of this adventure :).

[jen and grace]

Another recent engagement session took me out to Knox Farms in East Aurora.  I don't usually like to leave the city but this trip into the country was well worth it.  Jen and Grace have such a great energy together and were willing to be daring throughout the session.  I really look forward to their wedding next fall!
