I am Wendy Mitchell and I have been open as Wendy Mitchell Photography since January 2005. I am a wedding and engagement photographer in the Buffalo NY area. Each year I shoot weddings across WNY, Rochester, the Finger Lakes and the Southern Tier and occasionally travel to other areas of upstate NY (Syracuse, Alexandria Bay, Capital Region) as well as northwestern PA (Erie, Bradford).

I graduated from RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) in 2004 with a B.F.A. in Professional Photographic Illustration but commercial advertising photography has never really interested me - I love the personal feeling of working with brides & grooms to photograph beautiful, meaningful weddings!

Photographing couples is what I love to do most - weddings, engagements, vow renewals... I take a mainly documentary style approach, staying out of the way and taking pictures of everything as it happens. I love getting a wonderful mix of details, candid moments, beautiful posed photos of you with your families and your wedding party. I love photographing the flowers, the programs, the food, and the decorations in addition to making sure I get lots of pictures of everyone smiling & having a great time (and sometimes crying during the vows or the parent dances!).

I currently shoot about 30 weddings each year (I've done 278 weddings as of the end of 2012!). It's what I love to do and I'd love to talk to you about your wedding! Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
After shooting weddings for the past 8 years, I have been in a lot of different lighting situations. I do usually prefer natural light, but I know that a lot of the important events at weddings take place after dark or inside rooms without enough window light to avoid the use of using artificial light, and I'm happy to say that I have flash heads to provide all necessary additional light.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I have been shooting exclusively digital images since May 2008.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
When you hire Wendy Mitchell Photography, you are not hiring a studio. You are hiring a person. You are hiring me. I guarantee my presence at every wedding I book.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I do often book more than one wedding a weekend, but never more than one wedding a day.

I can't say enough great things about Wendy! She is an amazing, talented photographer and is so easy to work with . She knows exactly what she is doing, is professional and so much fun! I didn't have to stress for one minute on that day. She was flexible, really listened and paid attention to our vision for the day. She was able to get images that were important to us as well as the ones she knew would be priceless, even despite my husband disliking pictures! I highly recommend Wendy and can't wait to see the rest of the photos!

We loved working with Wendy. We are from out of town, and we also weren't quite sure of our wedding picture locations until the last minute, but Wendy was very flexible and easy to work with the entire time. She had great ideas for photo locations, but also was open to all of our ideas as well. We didn't want photographs that looked too posed or cheesy, and we didn't even have to tell her that-- all of our pictures were so natural. She was great to have around during the wedding day as well. She always happened to be in right place at the right time, and she was never intrusive. We are so happy we chose her as our photographer and would recommend her to others in an instant.

Wendy is the best! She's photographed both my daughter's weddings, a niece and I also referred her to a friend for her daughter's wedding. We've all been thrilled with the pictures. I had another niece who wanted to have Wendy photograph her wedding but alas she was booked on that day. We call her the wedding ninja. She gets these amazing shots and half the time you don't even know she was there! She captures the beauty of the settings and the joy and emotion of the day perfectly.

Wendy was AMAZING start to finish!! All people do is comment on how beautiful our pictures are and ask us who took them! We actually have friends who just got engaged and instantly wanted her information. We had a very large wedding party and by the time we took group pictures she had memorize everyone's name!! This helped not only in ease of picture taking, but in the comfort of our friends!! Our parents were also very pleased with how attentive Wendy was and made sure everyone had all the pictures they wanted!

Wendy was pleasure to work with. When we first contacted her, we weren't sure of our wedding date but knew we wanted to book her. She was flexible and presented us with different options to make sure we would have her when we knew the date for sure. She was very responsive and professional leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding, she was very easy (and fun!) to work with and got every shot we asked her to get. After the wedding we remembered that we hadn't asked her to shots of a couple random things that we wanted but when we got our pictures we realized that she had gotten them anyway. Most importantly, the pictures were fabulous!

Wendy was absolutely amazing. From the beginning she was very professional and also flexible with our Wednesday date. My husband and I are very camera shy, but she gave us just enough direction to make us feel comfortable and was so friendly that she put us right at ease. The pictures she took were absolutely incredible. She made us both look our best and then some. And as if that wasn't enough, she made us thank-you cookies that went with our theme. We feel like she was worth double what we paid--she's that good!

Wendy was amazing from start to finish! I came across her name on wedding wire, myself, soon after my husband and I were engaged over two years ago. I quickly set up a meeting to ensure I could have her photograph our wedding. She was great with keeping in touch and touching base with me a few weeks before our wedding to comfirm timelines, etc. She is the nicest, most down to earth person, and was so easy to open right up to the day of for the best pictures. My now husband HATES getting his picture taken and took to Wendy right away and did not complain once the entire time. She seemed to fit right in with our fun, non-traditional bridal party and made us all feel comfortable while getting all the right shots! She even made some difficult family members pose for pictures and smile that I didn't think was possible! Our blog on her website was up even quicker than she initially told us and the few pictures she placed on there were amazing and received overwhelming feedback from our family and friends. The way she can capture a moment or a look is unlike no other. I cannot wait to see the rest of our pictures and highly highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

We were SOOOO happy we found Wendy as our photographer. She captured all of the joy and happiness of our wedding day in the photos - when you look through the pictures, you really see it all again! Wendy is extremely talented, friendly and professional. She spent an hour and a half with me (on Skype - I'm from out of town) to talk to me about what I was looking for. She's attentive, listens well, and is so easy going. We have gotten so many compliments on our photos from family and friends. Thanks Wendy for a wonderful experience!!!

Wendy was so fun and great to work with. She learned everyone's name in our bridal party. In our meeting she listened to what we wanted and on our wedding day she took all the pictures perfectly. I could not have asked for better wedding photos. They came out amazing! Wendy is the best! Someone I work with who came to my wedding wanted her for her wedding.. But when she went online to see if she was available, Wendy was booked the whole year! So book Wendy fast! She is definitely worth it!

We found Wendy by doing an online search of one of our possible reception venues. She actually shot the wedding that we walked through when doing one of our first tours. She was the first vendor we booked after we confirmed our date, and the first and only photographer that we had a meeting with. We are SO happy we went with Wendy!

She took our engagement pictures for us and somehow made a dreary, windy and chilly day look amazing as our backdrop! She even emailed me that night as she was reviewing the pictures with an amazing preview pic! We are so pleased with the engagement pictures and the guest book that she put together with them.

The pictures from our wedding day are outstanding. We can't imagine having shared our day with anyone else! Her energy, professionalism and humor were exactly what we were hoping to share with a photographer. We got to see so many pictures from her blog post so quickly which was so awesome!
We would highly recommend Wendy to every couple. Working with her was a dream and she is so talented!

I found Wendy by accident. We were still looking for a wedding venue, and I was getting creative in my search for "Chautauqua Lake weddings" when I stumbled upon engagement photos Wendy had taken for a couple along the shore of the lake. I immediately fell in love with her pictures and sent her a contact email that very day. We hired her for our engagement photo session, our rehearsal dinner, and our wedding!

Wendy Mitchell blew us away with the photos from all three events. I am SOOOOOO HAPPY we picked Wendy as our photographer. She is beyond talented. Her pictures went way beyond just capturing visual snapshots....her eye and the way she captures photos makes you able to FEEL the event -- the weather, the mood, the light, the emotion...she is somehow able to capture it all in her pictures. Years from now I will be able to look back at the year I got married and truly remember exactly what that exciting and emotional and joyous time felt like because Wendy's pictures captured it so well. And that's just her photos.

Wendy is phenomenal to work with. She is organized, yet very laid back. She is not intrusive in any way, yet she is able to capture all of the little details of the event. She made even our most camera-shy guests feel comfortable. She was AWESOME about getting every single picture on my "checklist" even though I know she really likes to be more spontaneous than that. Wendy ran around town the day of our wedding from location to location to location -- she kept to the schedule and captured every group, setting, sight, person and event that I asked for. She was timely in getting our blog up and getting our album and discs to us. Heck -- she had emailed me a few "sneak peek" pictures within a few hours of our events!!!

Wendy was the most perfect choice to photograph our wedding. Photography was the most important aspect to me for the wedding. I went through tons of photographer's websites before we even got engaged to see portfolios and examples. Wendy really impressed me not only because her style was simply elegant without tacky tasteless poses or an overuse of Photoshop effects, but because she post photos from every wedding she shoots on her blog. I was able to get a real feel for her and when we first met, she brought lots of examples for us to see. We got a package that included LOTS for a very reasonable price. Our engagement session was a lot of fun and Wendy spent more time with us than we anticipated, and the pictures were gorgeous. She had the photos ready for us very quickly. Wendy was very easy to contact leading up to the wedding, and we could tell she really was excited for our day, too. I don't think our wedding day would have been as fun if we hadn't hired Wendy. She has a great personality and is very outgoing. She talked with our guests, and it truly felt like we had one of our best friends as our photographer. She was never in the way and never obstructed guest's views. We also hired Mary Beth Flatau to photograph the groom before the wedding, and to be there during the ceremony. She was also great, and got some awesome shots we wouldn't normally had gotten. Wendy got a lot of our photos online within a week, which was awesome because we got to see them during our honeymoon. They are FAR better than most wedding photography I've seen in the area, and for a much better price. I've seen a lot of friends get fooled into thinking they can spend a very small amount and get quality photos, or spend wayyy too much on photos that are too photoshopped. Wendy was worth every cent we spent, and we made a great friend out of her, too!

I could not be happier with my choice for wedding photographer. Wendy was professional but also made us feel so comfortable. Our pictures turned out fabulous. Three days after the wedding she had a blog up so I could see a taste of my pictures, she also had my book and discs to me less than a month after the wedding! Not only were her pictures amazing, she had them to me so fast and not only that, she sent us a thank you with personalized cookies! She is the best and affordable too.

Wendy Mitchell photography is the best choice I made for my wedding (next to my husband of course). I could not have asked for a better day full of love and laughter and I have every moment captured perfectly thanks to Wendy! Not only was she a wonderful photographer she is a wonderful person everyone could not say enough about how pleasant and fun she was all while not missing a moment to snap the perfect picture. Me and my family really could not be more impressed with her and her pictures. I am so thankful that I choose the perfect person to take the perfect pictures on one of the most important days of my life!

Hiring Wendy as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding planning. Her photos are simply stunning-- she provides the perfect blend of posed and candid shots. We have received endless compliments on our photos and we couldn't be happier. She is also wonderful to work with; by the time our wedding day rolled around, it felt like we were working with a friend. And she posted a sampling of our photos just days after the wedding!

My husband and I are so happy we chose Wendy as our photographer for our May 4, 2013 wedding. She is exactly what we were looking for. She is funny, easy going, flexible and did everything I asked for, plus lots more. She photographed our engagement session, my bridal shower and our wedding. She is very easy to communicate with via email and is quick to answer any questions you may have along the way. I appreciate her style and approach. It is easy to tell that Wendy has a true passion for photography, she is such a natural! She is great in all settings, from formal family pictures, to fun, spontaneous pictures. She suggests great poses, but makes them fun and natural, not forced. My family also loved Wendy, which means a lot on your wedding day. I have gotten so many compliments because of Wendy and her photos. I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone and everyone!

I am so glad we chose Wendy to photograph our wedding. They say that the day flies by so quickly that you remember it through the pictures (so true!), so from the get-go I knew I wanted to hire someone who would capture all of the events of the day beautifully. Wendy is that and more. She felt like a friend as soon as we met and was personable and friendly with all of my family members and guests. She was a joy to have with us throughout the wedding and was incredibly professional--even learning the names of the people in my wedding party and being able to direct them by name during our group shots. She photographed every detail of the wedding so thoroughly that just by looking through my album, I can relive the day. Her photos are just that perfect. Wendy is an absolutely fantastic photographer!

Wendy was the first and only photographer I contacted and I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to hire her on the spot. She was very friendlly and easy to work with throughout the whole day. She went with the follow of the day to capture the most beautiful pictures. My friends and family couldn't believe the photos in our "sneak peak" and were left wanting to see more. Over a month later everytime I see someone who was at the wedding they tell me how beautiful the pictures were. My husbands favorite thing to tell people about Wendy is, it was like she wasn't there, but if you wanted her to capture a moment she was right there to do it. I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a photographer! I know we couldn't be happier with our decision!

Wendy was wonderful to work with and the pictures we've seen so far are amazing. She already had a blog post of our wedding with many of the excellent pictures only TWO days after our wedding--I was very impressed with how quickly she worked on that, and many of our friends and family were too (especially those who also recently got married and had to wait much longer than that to see any of their pictures). She was friendly, funny, and she made me and my extremely photo-shy husband feel comfortable with having our picture taken, which is a near miracle for him. I would highly recommend her to anyone! :)

My wife and I hired Wendy Mitchell based off of positive recommendations we had read on the internet and a very positive meet-and-greet we had with her on discussing how our wedding photography could be planned out. Wendy did a fantastic job in helping us with the planning process, and was very familiar with both the church and the reception venue. We were amazed at how well she worked with us, the wedding party, the church, and the people in charge at the reception venue to make sure everything was going smoothly. She was very much a calming force on the wedding day, especially at times when I was most stressed! The end results were nothing short of phenomenal, and we proudly display our wedding pictures to all our friends and family.

She was also very responsive to any picture requests we had, whether they be formal or fun shots on the fly, as well as providing great suggestions. Wendy was also very prompt at getting the pictures up online for viewing, as well as printing our wedding book, not to mention she has very reasonable prices. I also want to state that we planned our wedding form out-of-state, and Wendy made the process very easy for us. I would without any hesitation highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking to book a photographer, and could not be more pleased with our experience with her.

Wendy Mitchell was a fabulous photographer for our wedding. She was, by far, one of the best wedding decisions that we made! There was an engagement session included in our photography package, but I live out of town, so I only had a one-week window to get the session done when I was visiting. She was completely willing to work with us to get the session done, even though it was Christmastime, and then she managed to produce FABULOUS pictures, even though it ended up being a gross, cold, rainy day. I knew if she could turn that day into beautiful pictures, that I had nothing to worry about for my wedding. Our wedding pictures also turned out very well. Wendy had fun, creative ideas for pictures, she brought a prop that we really liked, and she made all of our bridal party and family feel comfortable. Everyone was raving about Wendy afterward. She managed to get the best candid pictures...she was everywhere and didn't miss a beat. She captured every moment that I wanted to hold onto. One of the best things about Wendy is all the wedding experience that she brings to the table. She has seen it all, and it was very helpful to have her around. She had great advice and perspective! Of course, Wendy's products are also amazing. She created a beautiful wedding reception guest book for us that I treasure almost as much as my wedding album. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend Wendy as a wedding photographer for couples getting married in the Western New York area. You will not regret your decision!!!

I found Wendy Mitchell Photography while surfing the internet searching for photography vendors, her talents stood out in photographs and I was sold. I can't even begin to explain how she surpassed my expectations (which were high to begin with!). She made my husband and I feel comfortable (we don't really like pictures!) and captured the most beautiful memories from our special day. She was extremely flexible, professional, reliable, and the product is just unbelievable! She is so talented and I haven't stopped recommending her to friends and family looking for a photographer!

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer! Wendy was flexible and fun to work with, and we *loved* her pictures. From our first meeting, we felt that she understood us: the type of event we were planning, the sort of photos we hoped to have, and the atmosphere we wanted to create. Our friends and family raved about her too! We never doubted that she would capture our wedding perfectly, and that's just what she did. We would recommend her without hesitation.

Wendy did an amazing job with our wedding photos! She always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to capture all of the special moments of the day. Wendy posted a few sample photos in her blog just a couple days after the wedding so that we could enjoy the pictures while we were on our honeymoon. When our photo album came in, we were thrilled with the way all of the photos turned out. We highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Wendy was absolutely AMAZING. She managed to be everywhere, and I hardly even noticed. I haven't gotten the full gallery yet (after all, it's only been three days, and she took a ton of pictures) but she put up the blog post with just a taste of what's to come, and I'm so excited to see the rest of them. And on top of all of it, her prices are extremely reasonable. HIGHLY recommended.

I can not recommend Wendy Mitchell more highly. When we were first looking at reception venues and photographers were were surprised at the lack of customer service from many vendors. We met with Wendy and she sat with us for two hours and answered all of our wedding planning questions. She was the first person to get us really excited about what our wedding day would feel like. After our meeting we canceled our appointments with other photographers and booked her. She was extremely flexible to work with, and allowed us to swap the engagement session included in our package for rehearsal dinner photography. It was wonderful having her at our rehearsal. Everyone got to know her, and it is nice to have pictures of everyone in a more relaxed setting. On our wedding day Wendy came to take pictures of the bridal party getting ready, and it was so nice having her be a part of our day. All of the other girls were running around doing last minute primping, and Wendy was the person calming me down and telling me I looked beautiful before we left for the church. We took pictures on the Buffalo waterfront, and they are absolutely amazing. I didn’t feel like we were rearranging into different poses for hours, yet Wendy got a great range of formal shots. She also really captured what it felt like to be at the reception, but with good lighting and from flattering angles. She quickly figured out who the really important people were, and she got lots of pictures of our close friends and family at the cocktail hour and dancing. She also managed to get pictures of everyone who was at our wedding, the food, the flowers, and other wedding details. Immediately after the wedding one of my bridesmaids booked Wendy to shoot her son's baptism, and another friend tried to get out of their contract with another photographer to use Wendy for their wedding.

If you are just starting to plan you are probably not thinking of these kinds of things (I wasn’t) but these are things that became really important on our wedding day and after:
1. Wendy is a really nice person to be around. She put people at ease and sensed what pictures were really important to us and when we were exhausted and sick of taking formal shots. Your photographer will be at your side for your whole wedding day. Make sure it is someone you want to share your day with.
2. Wendy posts a sneak peek of your wedding day really quickly (like within 12 hours) on her blog. This was so much fun! It was amazing to wake up the day after our wedding and get to immediately see the highlights. I could have never anticipated how important that would have been to me, but seeing the pictures right away was a wedding highlight. We were sitting in the airport on our way to our honeymoon and seeing pictures go up on Wendy's blog and Facebook page.
3. A few weeks after our wedding we got an unexpected beautifully wrapped package at our door, and it was an album Wendy put together for us. Our wedding was nautical themed, and she even made a custom "sail away" box for the CDs of pictures. After all of the wedding excitement is over, and gifts have stopped arriving at your door this will mean a lot to you.

Wendy was everything and more that we wished for from a photographer on our wedding day! Even though the weather didn't cooperate, she captured many outdoor pictures for us as requested, and got many nice indoor photos at the ceremony. The reception shots are so candid and catch everyone's true craziness and emotions! She is down to earth, no-pressure, and makes you feel at ease. She is more than a vendor, she became our friend for the day and we look forward to working with her again for future family photos. Each time we look at our wedding photos on the wall and in our albums, we are grateful for Wendy!

Wendy did a fabulous job with our wedding photography. She was available on short notice and was more than accomodating. She met us for coffee prior to our wedding to discuss details of our day and provided the absolute best service. Her shots are unique and tasteful and she is fun to work with. I would recommend her to anyone!! I am looking forward to using her for family photos in the future. Job well done Wendy...and did I say affordable??!!

Wendy was awesome!!! You should hire her, plain and simple.

To elaborate....
She is very easy to talk to, you want to be her friend after your first phone consultation. It is very obvious that she is genuinely loves what she does. She wants to get to know you, your story, and your esthetic. I think I talked more about myself and my husband than I did about prices and contracts!!

That said, however, she is definitely a "divulger". She tells you everything you need to know upfront. You won't be surprised by any extra costs, anything that she won't do or anything that can't be done.

My photos (I haven't even seen ALL of them yet but felt the need to write a review ASAP) were incredible. She really captured the emotions of every moment; I don't think she missed a thing!

The day of our wedding, she was energetic, but in a go-with-the-flow kind of way. I was amazed at the fact that she genuinely looked like she was having as much fun as my guests!!

I planned my wedding from Florida and she was easily reached by phone or email and always replied quickly. I've already had friends down here asking if she travels!!!

You'll surely get the most bang for your buck by hiring Wendy. She promises and she delivers.

While searching for a wedding photographer, I fell in love with the pictures of my friend's wedding, which were done by Wendy. After meeting with her, I knew that she was the perfect photographer for the job. She was so personable and easy to talk with. She was very flexible and her prices were very reasonable.
Wendy was very good about keeping in contact with us up until the wedding and making sure we were all on the same page. The day of the wedding, Wendy made us all feel very comfortable. She was very flexible and calm, especially with the crazy weather! She left the decision of taking pictures outside up to us, and was ready to do whatever! (which i loved).
She captured so many moments at the reception, I can't believe it! Every time something was happening, she was right there on the dance floor!
The album that she made is so beautiful. It was more than i expected! And she also gave us little cards with the website for the online gallery to put in our thank you cards-great idea!
I highly recommend Wendy Mitchell for weddings and other photography sessions. She is great!!

The easiest part of planning our wedding was working with Wendy. I would recommend Wendy Mitchell Photography to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. Many friends of mine have used Wendy' Mitchell Photography for their weddings, big and small. They all had wonderful things to say and their pictures were beautiful. When we first met, she provided her portfolio and she built our package around what we wanted. She was willing to meet with us on more than one occasion if we wanted her to and she was always very quick in replying to emails or returning phone calls. Any questions or concerns, changes etc. Wendy worked with us through them all guiding us when we needed ideas for specific pictures, time frames etc. Wendy is very professional and personable. Her quality of work is the highest. Our wedding day went by so fast, the last thing we wanted was to forget to get pictures with family, friends etc. She was there when we were getting ready and took pictures of all the little details, getting dressed, the ceremony and reception decorations before the wedding as well which was great! All the time I put into all the details and personal touches for our fall wedding will always be remembered because Wendy captured them all for us. Wendy was there throughout the night and continued to be in the midst of all the action- At the end of the night she was sure to check with us to make sure there were no other pictures we wanted before she ended for the night. When we received our pictures, we were thrilled with the quality of the work in the pictures she had taken of us and for us--and it was even more wonderful to see pictures of things going on behind the scenes- the candid moments that we bought disposable cameras to capture- Wendy got them all. She exceeded our expectations. The only recommendation I have for you when booking her is to book early as her schedule fills up quickly.

Wendy is extremely easy-going, creative, responsible, and fun...really everything you want and need your wedding photographer to be. When I was looking for a wedding photographer I knew I wanted a more modern look similar to photojournalism. At first I couldn't find anyone in my price range with the look I wanted, until I found Wendy's website. After our first meeting I knew she would be perfect! She has excellent attention to detail and caught every moment of our wedding perfectly. I also couldn't believe when my photos arrived EARLY, in a beautifully done album along with copies of EVERY photo she took that day. Wendy really does offer an amazing package deal - absolutely beautiful photos, her awesome attitude and a price that can really work with a tight wedding budget.

As with any photographer, make a list of pictures you want after the ceremony and before the reception. Once we took those pictures, she took candid shots that were AMAZING! I think everyone who attended my reception was in a picture somewhere. I was more than pleased!

For starters, Wendy is such a sweetheart, and you can tell she loves her job. She's very friendly, while still being very professional, which made for just the perfect photographer for our wedding! She was on time and had her act together, she answered her phone/voicemail/email very promptly too, which I highly appreciated. And on top of all that, her photography is gorgeous! Our wedding was 5 days ago and she already posted quite a few "sneak peak" pictures up on her blog. I was so amazed (along with everyone else I showed) as to the quality and creativity. I can't wait to get the DVD and album! Her prices are very reasonable too. I wouldn't think twice about hiring her if I had to do it all over again. Thank you so much Wendy for helping us remember our wedding through pictures! -Lauren and Mitch

My family uses Wendy Mitchell Photography for so many of our important events. Her pictures are always amazing. I brag about her to everyone I know.

Actually that back-fired because she was booked for MY wedding date :)

Thankfully, she was able to shoot my brother's wedding and my sister's wedding. She did a newborn shoot when my son was born. She has also done newborn shoots for 2 of my nieces.

One of my favorite things about Wendy is that she is so great about getting good candids so you don't have to waste a ton of time posing, although she does great posed pics too.Plus she is pretty stealthy - she can zip in to get some memorable moments, without you even knowing she is there.

Wendy handles things quickly and efficiently. She's easy to get in touch with. She charges a reasonable amount. She provides web access to her pictures and her web site is easy to navigate. She is truly gifted and very passionate about her work!

We love that she is an even mix of personable and professional. She is fun and easy to talk to about your vision for your pics. She has a lot of great ideas and listens to yours as well. We have had less than favorable experiences with other photographers - so working with Wendy is an absolute dream!

Check out her portfolio. It speaks for itself!

The best pictures ever! I have seen album after album from friends/family weddings. I was so much more impressed with the quality of pictures we received. We have already recommended Wendy to a few of our friends and we are debating arranging a family photo with her!

I first came to know Wendy Mitchell Photography through my best friend's wedding. Wendy was very personable, friendly, and flexible at her wedding. Then I saw her pictures. Wendy has the ability to take the most amazing pictures, yet be unseen and leaving you to wonder "How did she take that, I didn't even see her there." I got her card from my friend and saved it until I got engaged.

Wendy was the first phone call I made after I got engaged. I didn't even set the date until I knew the date we had planned was available for her. When I contacted her, she remembered me from my best friend's wedding, which was two years earlier. When we set up an appointment to interview her and to see her portfolio, the thing that sold me the most was that she had a story for every picture--she remembered certain stories and events that happened at each wedding she worked. Not many professionals I know actually pay attention enough to remember every wedding they have been involved with.

Having Wendy do the photography at my wedding was like having one of my best friends taking the pictures. Her easy going, friendly personality put everyone at ease and it felt like she was part of the family. She talked with everyone, remembered everyone's names, and by the end of the night knew who belonged to who in the family. She took some posed pictures, she took a lot of candids, and she even obliged when other people asked to get pictures taken. She captured every aspect of the wedding--the church, the guests, the food, the little moments that would have been forgotten had they not been captured on film. I told her only a few pictures I wanted her to take, but other than that, I trusted her completely and she exceeded my expectations.

The quality that I recieved my photos in exceeded my expectations and was worth the wait. (I only waited a month for EVERY single picture she took, with doubles. She gave me a time frame of when I should expect them and I recieved them in that time frame).
I am so glad that I went with Wendy Mitchell Photography. I have had so many people compliment me on my pictures, and my one friend said that she regrets not having her at her wedding.

Her prices are amazing. For the price I paid (less than 2k), I recieved over 1100 pictures (I requested doubles), a CD, and the negatives. She doesn't do albums, but you recieve your pictures in an album that is so nice, I'm not even changing them to a different one. I know for a fact that my one friend paid more than 2k for her photographer, and didn't even get half of what I did. The quality and quantity you get for the price just doesn't compare.

Many people say they have their wedding photo album in a box and it's been in the closet since a year after they got married. I will not only keep these photos out, but I will treasure them and look at them often.

One thing I was sure of when planning my wedding was that I want amazing pictures that I could look back on for years to come. I had been in a wedding a few years prior that Wendy had shot, after seeing the pictures that she had taken it was the easiest choice choosing Wendy to shoot our wedding. She is extremely flexible, we had a super large wedding party and was able to capture all the amazing moments that we missed during all the hustle of the day. As a person Wendy has a amazing personality and is a lot of fun to be around which is nice for a very nervous bride...she is so very flexible in her shooting ability that you most of the time never even knew she was shooting! I would HIGHLY recommend Wendy to any bride looking to capture all the amazing events on their special day!!!! She also does AMAZING newborn picture :)

Wendy was more than we could have asked for, I had been at 3 weddings that she shot and knew that when I got married, I wanted her to do my special day. She is very flexiable, accomidating and at times you never even know that she is shooting pictures. Our albums were out of this world and they required no work on my part which was great. Since people have seen her work from my wedding I have gave out her number to 5 different people. Also my husband and I are having a hard time chosing what we want to buy and enlarge because there are so many awesome ones. I highly recommend her to anyone!!!!

We booked Wendy for our wedding in May '08. She was AWESOME!!! Finding a great photographer was one of the most important decisions that we made for my wedding, and we feel that we made the right choice! We got married in Auburn, NY and planned the whole thing from Atlanta,GA. So, communication skills were a MUST! She was very professional throughout all of our correspondence and was very flexible and helpful.

On our wedding day, everyone at our wedding said that she was great to work with & we agree! She was never in the way, never pushy, and had great suggestions for photos. I also agree with other reviewers that she did a tremendous amount of work for one person. (I've seen photographers with entourages of assistants whose work doesn't hold a candle to hers!)

When we got our pictures, we were amazed! You can tell that she has a great eye, because when you look at our photos, you totally see how our day was. She captured how FUN it was & you can really see our family and friend's personalities. We are STILL bragging about our photos today! 5 stars all the way!

Wendy was awesome from the day we booked her right through to the day we got our album. We had initially attempted to book a different photographer through a friend-of-family connection, but when that photographer was 20 minutes late to a meeting that she set up, we decided we'd look for someone else. Wendy photographed my brother's wedding in 2006, and after looking at the album he received, my fiancee and I were set on booking her. Wendy was extremely professional and responsive. The week before the wedding, she drove out to the church just to make sure she would find it okay and to know how long it would take her to get there. Not to mention that her pictures are awesome! Our album is full of awesome memories. Wendy does an incredible job of finding really outstanding, unique shots, in addition to the classic posed pictures.

Although we initially thought the prices for our wedding photography were quite high, we were excited and more than happy to receive prints of not some, but all of the photos Wendy took at our wedding. Her professionalism on the day was unparalleled. She got to know both my husband and myself in addition to the attendants and immediate family, and yet was unobtrusive in taking photographs. When we received our prints, we thought, 'How did she get that shot?' on more than one occasion. Most importantly, her photos were beautiful and a style completely her own. We highly recommend Wendy for any wedding, special event, or portrait. Ten out of ten!

We saw Wendy in action at a mutual friend's wedding back in May of 2005. I rarely saw her throughout the ceremony or reception and wondered what kind of photographer she was. Then I saw my friend's pictures - - absolutely stunning. I could not believe that Wendy got the pictures she did by herself, no assistants, without me EVER seeing her. I was convinced that she was magic and immediately booked her for our wedding, almost 2 years in advance. I would have actually changed my wedding date if she was not available.

Wendy is very easy to communicate with - - I am an email girl - - and she always responded quickly. We met with her in person to discuss what we wanted and never felt pressured to get more than that. We paid THOUSANDS LESS than several of our friends for far SUPERIOR wedding pictures. She is absolutely amazing. She stayed late the day of our wedding and took posed shots that we wanted, but everything else was done in a photojournalistic manner, which is what we loved about her in the first place. Looking at my wedding pictures made me feel like I could take a step back and see what other people saw - - she is excellent at capturing the "feel" of very special moments. My husband and I also loved that we got an entire album of every shot that she took and then we were able to order multiple shots, enlarged, black and white, etc, for ourselves and other people. I personally loved the parent albums she put together for us.

We recommend her to all of our friends and have had the pleasure of seeing her at another friend's wedding. Everyone that I know has complimented our wedding pictures several times over. It's like having your very own People magazine edition of YOU. My husband and I found every aspect of Wendy's photography outstanding. That is why we couldn't think of anyone better to photograph our first child, born May 30th of this year. There is no one else I would trust to capture the beautiful images she did of my then one week old son. Her work is amazing - - see for yourself!

Wendy is definitely my photographer for life. I recommend her highly without hesitation.

We hired Wendy based only on her website because we were planning from out of town, and we were blown away by the quality of her work. It's so easy to get 15 or 20 great pictures for a website, but the pictures of our wedding were exactly what we were hoping for... even better! For being only one person, she was amazing at getting all these different angles, and being in the right place at the right time. She was so easy to work with, kept posed pictures to a minimum at our request, and fit right in to our day making it easy for us to just relax. Everyone who sees our album is really impressed, and we're really glad we hired her!!

We were SOOOO happy with Wendy! We found her through a recommendation from a family member who had actually gone to a wedding as a guest that Wendy had taken pictures at and who was so impressed, they asked the bride to pass on Wendy's information to us when we got engaged! We liked her and her down-to-earth personality immediately and were completely won over by her amazing style of pictures. We thought the price was extremely fair. We couldn't believe we had so much "take-home" stuff from her, while other friends who paid much more for their photographers had only an album with 20 or so pics to show for it. We would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in the Western NY region and would be willing to speak to anyone who had any questions. Wendy, thank you so much for everything you did to make our day perfect!!!

I found Wendy via her website and loved her work. She was more than a photographer at our wedding, she felt like a trusted friend. Our pictures are stunning, and she really tuned into our desire for candid photography rather than an abundance of stages photo-ops. My younger sister, who has Down Syndrome, was a bridesmaid. Half-way through the posed group shots she became very agitated and upset. Wendy, with her calm and sweet nature, dealt with my sister beautifully. I highly, highly recommend Wendy as a photographer. Her price for the quality and amount of photos we received beat out a number of other photographers we contacted. I was also very pleased with her use of film over digital -- and we got to keep every picture she took in the form of 4x6 (about 400 pictures!). We also ordered several 8x10 with color selection (Wendy would develop the image as a black and white, coloring only certain parts -- bouquets, etc).

There were several guests at my wedding who were interested in booking Wendy just based upon her demeanor at the event, including my sister and maid of honor. You truly cannot go wrong with Wendy!

Half-way through the posed group shots she became very agitated and upset. Wendy, with her calm and sweet nature, dealt with my sister beautifully. I highly, highly recommend Wendy as a photographer. Her price for the quality and amount of photos we received beat out a number of other photographers we contacted. I was also very pleased with her use of film over digital -- and we got to keep every picture she took in the form of 4x6 (about 400 pictures!). We also ordered several 8x10 with color selection (Wendy would develop the image as a black and white, coloring only certain parts -- bouquets, etc).

There were several guests at my wedding who were interested in booking Wendy just based upon her demeanor at the event, including my sister and maid of honor. You truly cannot go wrong with Wendy! Read less

Choosing Wendy for our photographer was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Wendy felt like an old friend taking beautiful photographs of our wedding. She made everyone feel at ease. Our photos were fantastic and I cannot believe how many wonderful photographs we have! She made sure to get all the little details without being intrusive.

We recommend Wendy to all of our friends. My best friend just had Wendy as her wedding photographer and the photographs are amazing!

We were married 2 years ago and had one of those nightmare wedding days that everyone fears - including crutches, a broken zipper on the wedding gown, an evil maid of honor, etc. But there was Wendy - very caring and still was able to get some amazing shots. I think she even had tears in her eyes for us at one point! She offered to do a reshoot for us to get some shots that were not possible on our "big day" (i.e. wedding gown fixed, tux re-rented, etc. so that we did have some shots as they were meant to be). We know that she was booked solid (the month of June) but still took time out to do the reshoot for us.

Wendy is the most talented photographer we have ever met and just a fabulous person. EVERYONE involved with our wedding thought she was amazing and her work is absolutely stunning. We have referred her many times without any hesitation. We even tried to book her for a 50th anniversary party (she was having her baby). Even though she was not available, she gave 2 names of photographers for us to contact as well as background info - we ended up not having a photographer at all b/c we could not have her but, again, her generosity and caring nature was amazing - going above and beyond for us a second time!

We cannot say enough about how wonderful, professional, and caring Wendy is and her work is unmatched by anyone. We highly, highly, highly recommend Wendy for any photography needs!

I found Wendy when I was looking for reasonably priced wedding photographers that used more of a photojournalistic approach. I am not a huge fun of ALL posed pictures and her style allowed that flexibility. Wendy was wonderful-very personable and professional at the same time. I would definately use her again. I have recommended her to a number of friends of have also used her for their photographer. She even dealt well with my sometimes annoying mother-in-law!!!

My husband and I were very happy with Wendy and would highly recommend her. She was the first vendor I booked and, at that stage of the wedding planning process, I didn't realize how much I would appreciate her later on! She initially took over an hour out of her time to talk to me on the phone (we were planning a long distance wedding) and always responded to my emails right away.

We initially contacted Wendy because of her RIT degree and her website portfolio—it was important to us that we have someone take good photographs, not someone who would just recreate traditional wedding poses. Her skill is evidenced in her online albums, and we were very pleased with the quality of our photographs. We also received our CD and proof album quickly. My friends were surprised that we received it in less than five weeks after the wedding.

Personality wise, Wendy is great—she is friendly, smart, and completely down-to-earth. Again, we would definitely recommend her!

We were recommended by a friend of mine to go with Wendy for our wedding because of her "no pressure, have it your way, caring" attitude. I am still thanking my girlfriend for introducing us to Wendy. She was amazing and captured just awesome moments during our ceremony and reception.

Wendy was an excellent photographer, was very intune with our needs and wants. Stayed late the night of the wedding. Haven't seen all the pictures yet but I am confident that I will be happy with them. She has a great personality and is easy to talk to! Way better than getting a package from a large photography studio.

I was generally quite happy with Wendy's services... the photos are gorgeous.

I just wish she took initiative with taking some family photos and other photos that are standard-- if i did not specifically ask wendy to take a posed pic, she did not take it -- we do not have any photos of my husband with his parents, his sisters or his grandparents from that day which is HUGELY DISAPPOINTING. I was hoping she would automatically take those photos without being asked.

Also, the candids were wonderful but, i wish the posed pics were a bit more organized and planned -- even to the point of asking people to check their ties or straighten their hair or stand up straight, etc...

Wendy Mitchell Photography responded with the following comments:

Even though this wedding was almost five years ago, I felt the urge to respond to this review.

Unfortunately Kristen didn't specify when she said "we do not have any photos of my husband with his parents, his sisters or his grandparents" that I most definitely DID take pictures of the bride AND groom with his family, just not him ALONE with his family, which are photos I am not in the habit of doing unless it is specifically requested.

The way I see weddings is that the whole celebration is to join the couple as one in marriage, so I take all family photos (with both sides of the family) with both the bride and groom in the photo unless it is specifically requested otherwise.

As far as making sure that everyone is standing up straight, checking their ties/necklaces, and making sure things don't feel rushed, I did take that constructive criticism at the time the review was posted and have been even more mindful of it since, especially when it comes to pre-planning with couples to make sure that their wedding day timeline assures enough time for the amount of posed pictures they want to have.
