Lisa and Jon had a classic, beautiful wedding in Elma, NY. I always have a good time with Lisa and Jon and their wedding was no exception. It was just a great time and I had a blast.

If you’ve been following this site for a while then Lisa may look a little familiar to you. Not only did I photograph their engagement session, but I also took her high school senior portraits. I’m guessing that when your senior portrait clients become your wedding clients is probably one of the signs that you’ve been doing this for a while…

Elise and Chris weren’t married on the driest of days. However, this didn’t stop the amazing couple from having a nice, intimate wedding over at the Knox Farm Mansion in East Aurora. Rain or shine, that place is an amazing venue. This wedding also demonstrates how a little bit of window light can go a long, long way.
