I'm Hannah B, wedding & portrait photographer based in New York State. I'm a lover of intricate details and story telling- both visually & through writing. Here you will find glimpses of my life as a photographer, wife, mama, dog-lover & Chick fil-A obsessed creative!
After postponing their event from May to November, Sarah & Pat FINALLY became Mr. & Mrs. Buehler at Maker’s Warehouse in St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania, on Saturday! Despite it being a little chilly, we were blessed with sunshine and amazing light for both first looks and allllll the portraits. Maker’s Warehouse wedding venue is new to the Elk County area, and goodness gracious is it beautiful! I’m so happy Pat & Sarah were able to change up their wedding plans and secure such an incredible place to celebrate their forever!
Having a front-row seat to your friend’s getting married is pretty dang cool. I get to be the one to see every happy tear fall, and when it’s time to relive all those sweet moments… I catch the first glimpse while editing the images! (Not a bad gig if you ask me!) My clients’ trust in me is something I will never take for granted, but knowing that some of Jesse and I’s closest friends were willing to invest in my work and trust my vision as an artist for documenting their day— that’s an entirely new level of humbled.
Sometimes, I take the responsibility of photographing weddings so seriously that I have to stop & remind myself that half of creating art is just living in the moment and capturing life as it happens. On Saturday, I was able to be fully present and see moments through my lens in a way that I haven’t in a very, very long time. (You’ll notice that Pat’s daughter, Evelyn, was the flower girl and she shows up at LEAST 50 times in this blog! Hahaha!) I just couldn’t stop thinking about how special it is that Pat & Sarah are finally becoming husband and wife, and that Evelyn gains a bonus mom + family that loves her unconditionally. That is a love story in itself!
Thank you for trusting me enough to be part of your day in such a monumental capacity. You truly gave me the freedom to document your moments however I chose, and for that, I am so thankful! You are the sweetest friends and I’m so happy you finally get to start your lives as husband and wife! Happy #WeddingWednesday, now go enjoy the HECK out of your wedding recap! xoxo
