One of the greatest things that has come from my photography business for me is the connections it has either created or reestablished with my clients. Shannon and I knew each other a long time ago as we both attended Genesee Valley Central School. Once Shannon started her graduate program at Houghton College, it was nice to see a friendly face on campus once in a while when we would run into one another- usually in the local coffee shop : )
So a few months ago when I got an email from Shannon asking if I’d be her wedding photographer, I was again thankful for the chance to ‘run into’ her and the ways in which my business helps me connect with people I’ve known for a long time. But enough about that… Shannon and Jon met a long time ago as well and dated throughout high school and college.
For their engagement session we met up in Buffalo and started at the Albright-Knox for some creative urban shots.
Shannon and Jon are pretty incredible together- both juggling impressive careers and living in separate cities (Shannon in Buffalo and Jon in Syracuse) while maintaining a great relationship. They were so casual and comfortable with each other it was easy to document.
We headed across the street to Delaware Park which still had some amazing blooms and blossoms to work with.
So sweet. I think everyone needs a classic ‘city bench’ shot.
I can’t wait to document their wedding day and celebrate with them.
