About Us

we believe:

 in the preservation of authentic celebrations
moments matter more than centerpieces
long walks in the woods are always the answer
your favorite song is even better on vinyl
summer nights were meant for bonfires, beers, and laughter reaching all the way up to the stars

more than anything though, we believe in you.

we believe that your story is the most important thing in the world. truly. your love, your crazy, windows-down-road-trip-tangles-in-your-hair love, is evidence that what truly matters cannot be broken.

whether you are planning a wedding, or packing up the marshmallows and graham crackers for s’mores on the beach, your story is so breathlessly beautiful, and important, and we are so happy you have found us here.

we’re Brian & Christina, a husband and wife wedding photography company specializing in intimate weddings  &  storytelling portraits. we’re based in buffalo, new york but consumed by wanderlust, and often on the road traveling for weddings, portraits & adventures of all kind.  This year, we purchased a 1977 camper which we’ll use as we travel more & more for weddings. We can’t wait to name her, so if you have any ideas, feel free to leave them here. 

it’s been a wonderfully strange 6 years since we moved home from green point, brooklyn & started our photography business.  we have a repeating conversation: “if you were to ask us 6 years ago what our futures held in buffalo,  full time wedding photographers would not have been on the list of ideas. ” but here we are, doing something we now could never imagine our world without: capturing people’s happiness,  full time.

it’s a heartening feeling to know there is something bigger out there drawing us to what we’re meant to do and where we’re meant to be. We photograph a limited amount of weddings each year so that we can give each celebration the attention it deserves. above all else, we value authentic connections & working alongside kindhearted, adventurous spirits. an appreciation of photography & honest storytelling is essential to our clients & at the core of all we do is the belief that we are brought together, with you, to create magic.
