There are so many talented Buffalo engagement photographers out there who can bring out your inner glow, creating a keepsake for you and yours to remember for years to come. Check them out!

1. Leanna Alexis Photography

Exuding a lively, adventurous spirit, one of our absolute favorite Buffalo engagement photographers Leanna Alexis produces gorgeous candid portraits of couples who are wildly in love. A professional couples and elopement photographer, she effortlessly captures the love you and your partner share, so you can easily revisit the moment at will. With a dash of free spirit and a whole lotta personality, her photos are simply breathtaking. Call on her when you are eloping to marry the love of your life or want an outdoor engagement session. Her style is somewhere between modern and moody — we love it, and know you will, too. 

2. Lindsay DeDario Photography

A lifelong photographer, Lindsay has been enamored with the art form for decades, and this palpable passion shows up in her work. Lindsay blends her photojournalistic tendencies with her graphic designer background, and the result is magic — using gorgeous light, thoughtful composition, and occasionally even some Photoshop wizardry, she creates photos that you will treasure for the rest of your life. In addition to being a photographer and portrait artist, she is a storyteller at heart.

3. Stefan Ludwig Photography

Stefan Ludwig is a dynamic creative talent — he blends his commercial style into his portraits for a body of work that showcases his technical expertise. In addition to his professionalism, he adds whimsy and playfulness to his shots — he’s often experimenting with angles and techniques to make your photo session personal and perfectly suited to you. Since each of his shoots is inspired by a different couple, you can’t be sure exactly what you’ll get during a photo session, but you can be sure it will be a piece of art with Stefan.

4. Jaimie Ellis Photography

According to Jaimie, “My specialty is quickly making you forget all about the fact that you hate having your photo taken. Bringing out your genuine personality by making you feel comfortable and like you’re just hanging out with an old friend.” With her co-existing specialties of boudoir and weddings, we know that’s true. She has a knack for creating empowering photographs of people, and she has tons of experience making even the most camera-shy comfortable in front of her lens. If you want to work with someone who will make you feel beautiful, someone who simply understands how to make people feel included and seen, Jaimie is a great choice. 

5. Becca Sutherland Photography

We’re drawn to Becca’s work because of her combination of ultra-professional shots and sweet candid moments. She has a streak of wanderlust, and you can feel that in her photos — a sense of place, of mood, of wanting to get the details right so you can revisit the time you spent with her again and again. In her own words, “My goal as a photographer is to tell the story of you… I love the authentic love and laughter that happens when you forget about the camera and just start enjoying your time with me.” With her artistry and talent, you will remember this special time in your life forever.

6. Cecilia Denise Photography

Cecilia radiates a genuine love for what she does, which shines throughout all of her work, from portraits to her weddings. She’s one of our preferred Buffalo engagement photographers for her authentic style — her work is a celebration of love and individuality. There is a lively, spirited quality she brings to her sessions that seems to bring out the personalities of her clients — you can feel the mood and vibe of each person she shoots. It’s no wonder Cecilia is one of the most talented Buffalo engagement photographers.

7. Kayleigh Frasier of Captured By Kay Photography

For Kayleigh Frasier, photography is more than a job, it’s her absolute passion. She is delighted by the enduring nature of photographs, saying she loves “knowing that when you are behind the lens you have the ability to give not only your clients, but generations to come the ability to look through an album or see a canvas hanging on the wall and be able to relive that exact moment.” Her modern photo style in conjunction with her refined artistic sensibilities and thoughtful editing techniques results in timeless, jaw-dropping photos.

8. Hannah Kathleen Photography

Hannah has a self-professed love for the color white, as it “pure, bright, and minimal” — those three words also happen to accurately sum up her incredible photography style. Her photos are flooded with natural light, with simple compositions that are elegance itself. She is located in Buffalo, but this shutterbug loves to travel, so if you happen to love her style like we do, get in touch with her today no matter where you are planning your engagement or wedding! 

9. Amber Avery Photography

With her special blend of travel photography and couples photography, Amber infuses a sense of wonder into her engagement photographs, as well as a touch of love in her nature photos. She is an intuitive and passionate photographer whose background is robust and varied, and it’s this diversity that gives her work its novel qualities — evocative, playful, and natural. Take a peek at her portfolio and fall in love like we did!
