Danielle + Tom's Winter Photo Session featuring the Admiral Room at the Marin

Danielle + Tom

A few weeks ago I met up with past wedding clients, Danielle + Tom, for a little experimental photo session in Buffalo, NY. My wedding and portrait style of photography is very bright and cheerful and playful, but I also have a deep love for dramatic and moody images (often described as film noir), that I haven't really played around with before in portrait sessions. I think it's partially because I'm more drawn to photographing joyful and happy moments with a ton of laughter.

We met at the Admiral Room @ the Marin, a newly renovated and gorgeous building in downtown Buffalo that will soon be open for weddings and other events. It proved to be a great backdrop for what I was looking to achieve with a little bit more dramatic lighting in some areas, and the building's beautiful architectural details added interesting touches I absolutely adore. We finished their session with some photos out on the snowy streets of Buffalo.

Danielle + Tom, it was so fun to experiment with you both (and catch up!) and I am so happy with how these photos turned out – a good mixture of a little mood with lighting and still showing the love and laughter you both share. Thank you so much, and I cannot wait to see you again!
