Ok guys, so Sunday was our first time shooting at sunrise. Let me just tell you how amazing it was! Not to mention how awesome Rihann and Mario were as well. We started the session off at the couples beautiful home. Behind their house was this gorgeous field!



An outfit change and few minuets later we ventured on over to a beautiful, quiet and quant area of town that they spend a lot of time in. They brought the most amazing old school bicycle and well we couldn’t pass it up for a photo op! The bike mixed with the cobblestone and sunrise was something out of a fairy tail. Its safe to say that we all had a great time!!!







We can not wait until their special day, but untill then enjoy these images!

Hey Everyone!!! Hope you all are enjoying your Thursday! Sooo my daughter has a love for photos and photo albums. I mean she just absolutely loves sitting and looking through them all day. She’ll even ask me from time to time or my mom to buy her a new “feather album” (because she can’t say ‘photo‘ for some reason Hahaha). Once she gets her new album we usually spend the afternoon looking through our boxes of pictures that I have printed over the years. Her favorites are always ones of herself (obviously), ones of her with the family, or even ones of when my husband and I were dating. It never gets old and serves as a constant reminder of just how important physical prints are. Which leads me to my main reason for this post. I want to ask you……

When is the last time you actually printed your photos? How often do you print? Have your children and/or grandchildren ever held or felt a stack of photos like you used to when you were a kid?

For most people this answer is unfortunately “No.”

It has been said that the ‘most photographed generation will have no pictures in 10 years’ because no one takes the time to print anymore. I say it’s time we change that!

As a Mother, Wife, and Photographer to me there is nothing more important than being able to physically hold a print, a photo, one that was so special to you that you took the time to capture that moment by either yourself or a professional.

If you need some guidance then I’d recommend sites like Nations Photo Lab or Artifact Uprising to order prints from.

So go out today and encourage someone TO PRINT their memories so they can cherish them forever. Print your photos so you can share your LIFE with future generations.

It is with my great pleasure to announce that Alyissa of Alyissa Landri Photography and myself have joined forces to provide the absolute best wedding and portrait photography services for all of Buffalo, NY (and beyond).

I’ll be updating the site throughout the next couple weeks and adding some of Alyissa’s amazing photos to the galleries, blog posts and so on. Edit: Already taken care of. Thank you coffee for all the help the past couple days.

If you already booked Alyissa or myself for your upcoming wedding then you may be wondering what this means for you.

The short answer is: Nothing.

If you booked your wedding with Alyissa AND your package includes a second shooter then “Hello. Nice to meet you. My name is Michael and I’ll be tagging along on your wedding day.” The same goes for all my wedding clients with second shooters.

My amazing wife Becky will still be second shooting for a couple of the weddings where Alyissa and I had some scheduling conflicts.

To everyone else visiting this site for the first time then Welcome to Alyissa & Michael Photography!

Long story short, I think I speak for Alyissa and I when we say that we are super excited to be teaming up and cannot wait to share that same level of excitement on your wedding day.
