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 a whole extra year of waiting, Emily and Jake’s gorgeous September wedding finally came to fruition last Saturday at CHQ Barn! It truly could not have been more beautiful- we were blessed with the perfect fall weather, stunning details, an amazing vendor team, and (of course) the most infectiously joyful bride and groom to ever grace Chautauqua County.
Emily and Jake are truly the perfect balance for one another. They love the simple things in life, like nights spent in wearing cozy clothes on the couch, taking adventures to new places together, and sunsets on the lake from the comfort of their boat. Basically everything I love in life, too! 😉 It makes soooo much sense why we just “clicked” from day one. (No pun intended, since yo girl’s a photographer and all…)
I think I will be dreaming of their cookie table for the next year. To be fully transparent— I have been severely disappointed by some wedding desserts in the past. With Emily & Jake’s wedding, I was rationing out the cookies for days afterward in an attempt to savor each one. Hahaha! My favorite was the chocolate/peanut butter fudge cups. Holy freaking cannoli. If those showed up in a package on my front doorstep, I’d hide them from my husband and eat them in the closet in secrecy. That’s how delicious they were!
Ok, enough about my obsession with cookies and onto my obsession with these two as humans… Emily and Jake— y’all are some of the most down-to-earth, genuine, joyful, and kind humans I have EVER met. I am so stinkin’ thankful I got to be part of your best day ever; it truly was worth every ounce of the wait!! I’m so excited to see what adventures life takes you on from here on out. Feeling so blessed to call you clients and friends!!! Enjoy every ounce of this little wedding day recap, Mr. & Mrs. Szoszorek!! There are so many more where these beauties came from!
