I'm Hannah Bryerton, wedding & portrait photographer based in New York State. I am a lover of details and story telling- both visually & through writing. Here you will find glimpses of my life as a photographer, wife, dog-lover & Chick fil-A obsessed creative!
Simon and Sarah FINALLY became husband + wife on Saturday, October 19!!! They exchanged vows at St. James in Jamestown, NY, then held their reception at the beautiful Ivory Acres in Frewsburg afterward! It truly could not have been a more perfect fall day to celebrate the Liuzzos near-decade-long love story and the official beginning of their forever!
Sarah met Simon while taking the SAT their junior year of high school; I first met Simon during his junior year of college. I think that’s a sign that I was meant to be their wedding photographer or something, right? hahaha! It has been an absolute privilege to call these two my friends and be able to capture this incredible season of life for them. Their families + friends had me dying of laughter all day long. (But like, not exaggerating… I fell over at one point because I could not breathe. Pictures explaining why are, of course, included below!) I also casually cried behind my camera on multiple occasions. Needless to say, this day was full of the best surprises and cutest moments. I could not have asked for a more wonderful couple and group of family + friends to end my 2019 wedding season!
To the Liuzzo & LoPresti families: thank you for entrusting me with the honor of documenting such an incredible day for Sim & Sar! You welcomed us with open arms and made it feel like we were part of your family from the moment we arrived. Let’s hang out every weekend and celebrate Simon and Sarah, ok?!
Forever thankful for you all and your huge hearts. Please enjoy reliving this incredible day over + over again! I truly cannot wait for you to see the rest!!! 🙂 All my love, always.
Cue round one of tears… this father/daughter first look just before the ceremony made my heart burst!
How about these nephews? Oh my gosh. Sarah & Simon were blessed with the cutest little ring bearers I have ever seen! I just adored these three!
Remember when I said I fell over laughing because I couldn’t breathe? Here’s why….
….it was a valiant effort on the girls’ part. Shoutout to Simon for being so willing to let them (unsuccessfully) pick him up. I swear, this moment is now forever etched in my memory.
Cue round two of tears! Simon shocked us all and began singing halfway through their first dance. I am pretty confident that half the room was sobbing.
We snuck back outside after dinner to grab a few last minute portraits. I still cannot believe how vibrant the fall colors were last weekend. Thank goodness we took the time to grab some more photos below this lovely orange maple!
