Jess and Gian searched near and far to find the perfect band for their wedding at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, and holy heck they nailed it. Radio Tokyo ( @radiotokyorocks ) from Pittsburgh was the best band for this crowd and the absolutely knocked it out of the park. Singer/rapper Ambition (aka Pretty Ricky!!!) was just incredible. We’re talking hover board through the crowd while singing incredible. We had an absolute blast working with you all!

A wedding band really makes a huge difference in the mood of a party. There are some amazing DJ’s in the Buffalo Niagara region I really enjoy working with, but the entertainment a band brings truly takes it up a level. For the guests who don’t enjoy dancing, there is still something for them to watch and enjoy. I find wedding guests stay later at receptions when there is a band and that the age range of the guests remains much more diverse as well. A great wedding band like Radio Tokyo is definitely worth the splurge if you have the budget!

Check out this fantastic band over on their website: https://www.radiotokyorocks.com/

Grandma + Poop Hat = Photo “Booth” Fabulous – Rochester, NY Wedding Photography

…When your fabulous Grandma absolutely owns the giant smiling pile of crap on top of her head at your wedding… 😂😂😂 I recently saw an article posted by the equally fabulous @katiemakeup about “what not to wear after 30” and the answer following each photo was, “whatever the eff you want.” I think this lady would fit right in 🙂 Thanks to @joe_galdieri for manning the photo booth at this past weekends wedding! Awesome as always!!!

Senior Portrait Photography in WNY

Alli – Maple Grove High School!

We had a WHIRLWIND of a senior portrait photography session with Alli a couple weeks ago. We ventured all over Bemus Point, NY, a charming small town near Buffalo in WNY.  Alli is a senior at Maple Grove HS this year and we made a point to incorporate a LOT of her home town experience in to her shoot. We went from the neighbors tree swing to the docks of Lake Chautauqua, from the Hotel Lenhart’s signature rockers to the local soccer field. We covered a LOT of ground!  Alli’s little sister Britta came along for the ride and jumped in for a few family photos too!

Congrats Alli on senior year, I hope it’s the best yet!  And bring home that soccer state title!!!

Bemus Point is located right on Lake Chautauqua. There are beautiful views of the lake throughout the area, including on this dock in front of Alli’s friends house! Bemus Point and nearby Long Point State Park make for wonderful locations for senior portrait photography in WNY

These colorful rocking chairs on the front porch of the Hotel Lenhart are a signature of Bemus Point. They actually serve a deliciously sweet cocktail called, you guessed it, “a rocker,” here at the hotel. My sister and I have enjoyed quite a few Rockers on this porch over the years!

Alli is a star senior soccer player, and the Maple Grove ladies have a strong record. I hope they make states this year (and fair better than my team did, we lost in states, it was… sad)! At any rate it only made sense for us to get a few senior portraits of Alli on the soccer field during her photography session.
