Emily and Jamie | Avanti Mansion Wedding Photos

September 17, 2022 | Buffalo, New York


Congratulations to Emily and Jamie! I absolutely love when old high school friends get married and ask me to be their photographer. They chose the Amore Ballroom at Avanti Mansion, which features a beautiful, dual spiral staircase for some really unique photos. 

We started off the day in the bridal suite, which had that bright and airy vibe I love for getting ready photos. After everyone got dressed, we took some photos in the newly-renovated lobby by the "Amore" sign.

Shortly after, Jamie arrived with his groomsmen after taking some getting ready at his parent's house with my second photographer. Emily requested a "fake first look" with Jamie and his best man (where the best man pretends to be the bride). This was the first time I've had the opportunity to photograph this trend, and the reactions were absolutely hilarious!

The ceremony was held just outside the ballroom, super convenient for everyone. After the ceremony, we took some bridal party and family pics by the trellis. Once it was time to work with Emily and Jamie alone, I pulled out the lights and took them out front for some dramatic wedding photos in front of the Avanti Mansion. 

As it started to get dark outside, we moved straight into the reception to get the party started. Thank you again to Emily and Jamie for allowing me to capture your day!
