Engagement sessions are a great start for wedding prep with Neal Urban Studio. We all get to build a relationship. The couple gets to see how fast or slow we work at times. And they can use these images for save the dates, signing boards, signing books, thank you cards.
Melissa and Justin had us come to a favorite restaurant in Clarence Center, Clarence NY to start their engagement session called Gerties. They had their dog for some portraits and then mentioned a carnival was being set up around the corner. Do you think it would be fun for photos? It couldn't hurt to take a walk and check it out!
It turned out to be pretty cool for photos. The crew had just finished putting up the umbrella ferris wheel. Neal Urban wanted to use that for photos! To get am image like this, he had to take the photo from a really low angle. He had to lay on the ground and shoot up.
He place the bride and groom to be right in the center of the ferris wheel. Then he asked them to get nice and close and have a kiss. We love how this turned out. The orange behind them, really made them stand out. If that wasn't there, Melissa and Justin would have blended in with the sky. This was so fun! From here, we went to Clarence Town Park and then ended with night photos at Spaulding Lake.
The bride and groom had their wedding ceremony at St. Louis RC Church in Buffalo. We went to the theater district in downtown Buffalo for the idle(photos). They had a massive reception at Salvatore's Italian Gardens!
