Buffalo, New York

My first east coast wedding was just an amazing experience. I did not know what to expect flying in Sunday morning. I had a pretty rough flight, having two of my flights canceled, but I still managed to scramble my way to their Airbnb, making it in time for getting ready photos. First of all, the Airbnb was BEAUTIFUL! I loved the vibes, the southern feel it brought to the day. Everyone had fun getting ready, and we did the first look right outside the house. A & L's wedding was very traditional, mixed with Bosnian and Yemeni culture. We took photos at a beautiful park, called Knox Park, it was filled with unique buildings. It was pretty hot, but we had lots of water to stay hydrated. The party took place at La Galleria Venue, where everyone partied and danced for 4+ hours. Everyone was so pumped and excited, the whole evening was filled with their close family and friends celebrating their marriage. They had their first dance to the song, 'Best Part' by Daniel Ceaser. Overall I had the greatest day capturing it all, I didn't want the day to end! They are so down to earth and it felt like I knew them forever! Wishing Armin and Lena the best of the best in life! Enjoy their photos!
