About Wendy Mitchell Photography

I love being a photographer, and I'd love to be your photographer.


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!).  

Having been in business for well over 10 years (and over 400 weddings!), I still understand the importance of treating every wedding as its own special day.  While I do have the experience to be able to expect and prepare for normal wedding day situations, I make sure to approach every day as its own event without a formulaic or list-based agenda for what I'm going to photograph.  Sure, I'll take pictures of you both with your parents & grandparents, the cake, the flowers, all of the details, but I don't work in a way that I'm just checking off a to-do list.  Every wedding is as organic and free-flowing as possible!

Please contact me to set up a meeting, and of course view my work on my website - wendymitchellphotography.com!

Wendy was so fantastic throughout our wedding journey! It began with our engagement session at Knox farm in the middle of February (we wanted snow). It was cold, but she managed to get some amazing shots!. The day of our wedding Wendy was so helpful and flexible, and patient when our wedding party got a little distracted. Her photos are simply beautiful, and she really takes time to make the experience personal. Everyone in the wedding party loved her!

I'm a little bit late in posting this but Wendy was the photographer for my wedding in January 2017. From start to finish she was really wonderful. After meeting with her just once my husband and I knew she would be a good fit and we didn't interview any other photographers.
The day of the wedding she was on time and dressed professionally. She was willing to go the extra step for us to get the shots we wanted...to the extent of even bearing the cold, snowy January weather to get some photos outside. The guests loved her too, she mingled well and everyone could tell she really loves her work. I have since mentioned to many people that there isn't one photo that she took that I didn't like. She was really able to capture the essence and emotions of the day.
I can't express how happy I am that Wendy was our wedding photographer. I definitely recommend her and would hire her again in an instant!

Booking Wendy was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process. We set up a bunch of meetings with photographers to see who would be the best fit,. Just based on pictures from websites and blogs, Wendy was our top choice going in. When we met for our initial meeting it was like sitting down to catch up with an old friend. When she left, I turned to my husband and said "Oh man, I would totally hang out with her. She's awesome." And that was pretty much it, we knew we'd found the right fit.

We booked an engagement shoot before our wedding. My husband is not the biggest fan of having his picture taken and being the center of attention makes him uncomfortable, so we definitely wanted to practice for the wedding. At the engagement session, Wendy made Matt feel at ease. We're not the most affectionate couple in front of other people, so we were definitely one of those couples who needed direction as far as what to do, but Wendy never made us feel bad about that. The whole process made both of us feel great. And of course we were blown away by the pictures we received.

The day of the wedding, Wendy was a breath of fresh air. She was on top of the schedule and gently pointed me in the direction I needed to go in throughout the day, which was very helpful and appreciated. She was present and personable without being overt and in people's faces like some photographers can be. Wendy was great about the little things that were important, and was super patient when my nieces and nephew were just NOT having it with the pictures. We received so many compliments, not just about her work but regarding Wendy as a person. Everyone loved her, and so did we.

Wendy is an exceptional photographer and an absolute joy to work with. She is worth every single penny.
