Saunsanie + Mike. Married at Fredonia Opera House.

I had the fortune of photographing my first New Years Eve wedding in Dunkirk, NY which is about an hour outside of Buffalo.  When i booked it I was thinking ... freakin cold.  Being that I live in the Philly area, the cold doesn't bother me - I'm used to it.  However upstate NY cold and snow is different.  Leading up to the wedding I prepared myself for the worst ... 3ft of snow and wind chills in the negatives.  What awaited us was actually crazy mild temperatures for that time of the year.  Instead of 0 it was in the 40's.  Instead of a ton of snow, it rained.   Fine with me! So, from Philly to Dunkirk I went.  Road trip.

Sometimes road trips are better with a friend.  So I asked a buddy I met thru photography, Collin Hughes, to tag along for the trip.  Needless to say we had a blast.  I think I'll be posting a few shots of our BS'ing in a future post.  But for now, the wedding.  Collin 2nd shot for me and there are a few of his frames thrown in here.  If you are reading this Collin ... thanks man!

They were married here.
