• Welcome to Michael Alan Bielat Photography

    Please excuse the dust while I get this site up and running...

Alistair and Jen’s wedding was a special one. See, back in the day, my wife Becky used to photograph each and every wedding with me. However, it hasn’t been so easy the past 5 years or so when we decided to have her take a little break in lieu of becoming a professional baby maker. After 5 years, and three wonderful children later, she tagged along with me just like the good old days…

Jen and Alistair may have literally been halfway around the world from one another but their love and commitment to one another was like nothing I have ever seen before. These two are so madly in love and it was a true honor to have captured their day for them. I hope Alistair let’s his Aussie friends know that we shoot destination weddings lol.

Poor Emily. She really wanted to do her senior portraits this past Winter. You know, the Winter where Buffalo had basically zero snow all year? So with that being said, we had to come up with a Plan B. We decided to shoot over to Buffalo and get some shots around the city and by the Buffalo Waterfront. Lots of awesome shots but these have to be my favorite from yesterday:

I met up with Kirsten and Joe last Friday over at The Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Arts Center down here in West Seneca. Right from the start I knew it was going to be an amazing portrait session. These two are made for each other.

Here are some shots from the day:
