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.

There is so much I could say about Wendy and all of it is great. After falling in love with her work it was an easy choice to pick her for our wedding. Sure, I could have spent less, or gotten a package from some combo company with a photobooth or fancy lights. Attend a single wedding show and you will go home with at least 20 cards from photographers. BUT when it comes to the most important moment in your life that you want to remember, the last thing you want is a blurry picture or stale shot that makes you grimace. I wanted to see my photos and feel only joy at the great day we had. Wendy did that for us. She was quick to respond to all my questions, made sure to get all the shots I wanted, and provided a full set of photos in high resolution so I could print them. We also have an online gallery to share with friends and family. I have received so many complements on my photos and her style at the wedding. She was never in the way or rude to people to get a shot. It was like having a great friend take your photos. She knew where to be and when, but had fun while doing it. Anybody can buy a camera but it takes a true eye for beauty to be a great photographer and she certainly has it down.

I could not recommend anyone else. If you want the best, you want Wendy. Plain and simple. But do book early as she is so fantastic that she books up rather quickly.

Meeting Wendy was like reconnecting with a long-lost friend. She is extremely personable and her personality allows you to be 100% yourself in front of the camera which is a rare quality. Additionally, her work is absolutely stunning. We hired her to do our wedding on 10/04/2014. She has already uploaded a blog post and several amazing pictures that allow us to relive every moment of our spectacular wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Brides - Look no further! Wendy Mitchell Photography is the easiest and best decision you will make for your wedding. We knew we wanted Wendy from the moment we first laid eyes on her work. She was the first and only photographer we met with as we knew we didn't need to look any further.

The first time we met her, we quickly learned that she was just as great of a person as her photos were breathtaking. Some vendors require a lot of oversight and a lot of management. Wendy was on the other end of this spectrum. I knew with her I could give her an idea of what I was looking for and she would run with it. Not only would she run with it, but also it turned out even better than what I had envisioned.

Wedding planning is stressful. Wedding day coordination is stressful. Wendy removed all of that in all areas that she could, even outside of photography. Our venue coordinator was horrible (to say the least) and Wendy stepped right in. She also did an excellent job working hand in hand with our videographer. The way they worked together, you would have thought they had been working together for years. Our guests commented how great she was the entire day of the wedding. They loved her fun, easygoing nature, and you would have thought she was a friend of ours thy way she fit right in. Our guests couldn't wait to see the photos, and when they did, they fell in love all over again.... just like my husband and I did.

Although your wedding day goes by so fast after so much planning, the product that Wendy provided us will allow us to forever relive the best day of our life and the beginning of our Happily Ever After through her talented eye and perfect lens. We can't thank Wendy enough.

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!

Wendy is personable, discreet and extremely talented. She truly has an eye for finding the perfect spot, lighting and timing in her photos. When we got engaged, we knew we wanted Wendy (she had photographed one my best friend's wedding) and we even choose our specific date based on her availability! Any couple who has the pleasure of working with her will never regret it! Thank you Wendy!

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!
