My name is Jeff Welt, and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Buffalo, NY.  I explore all of Western New York’s unique locations and share genuine experiences with clients and friends.  People often ask me how I am able to create such unique and natural looking photos…

The secret:

  1. First, I make everything very simple.  From booking to planning, and even on your wedding day.  When everything runs smoothly, making great photos is easy and comes naturally.

  2. Next, I focus on connecting with my clients.  I take the time to get to know them, their preferences, and their personalities. Building a relationship is key.

  3. Finally, planning for an unforgettable experience!

But Jeff!  I have never been in a real photo shoot before…

I don’t know what to do.

I have good news! 

Planning engagement photoshoots and wedding photography can be fun and simple with the right photographer. 

I will help you:

  • Create a theme that tells your story

  • Decide on what to wear

  • Pick a location

  • Direct you with posing in cinematic scenes

But what if I am self conscious?

Will you help me feel comfortable?

I promise.

I know exactly what it’s like to feel awkward having your picture taken, so I plan experiences that don’t allow for you to feel self conscious. You are going to have such a good time you will forget you are on a photoshoot. Most couples don’t want their experience to end!



What does that mean?

Simple!  A premium engagement session is:

  • Unlimited time

  • Unlimited outfit changes

  • Any location in Western New York

  • Full access to planning with Jeff

Here’s what people are saying about Jeff…

Noel says:

We booked Jeff for our engagement shoot as well as our wedding photography. Everything you see and read on his website are exactly what you get. These are the absolute best photographs we have of each other as a couple. Many of our friends have waited 4-6 months to receive their wedding photos from other photographers. We received previews within two days! We could not be more pleased. We were so happy with our photos we recommended Jeff for my best friends wedding. Thank you Jeff for making a very stressful day enjoyable and beautiful.

Kristen says:

An amazing and creative eye to create unparalleled style, drama, and story-telling in any shoot for any purpose. He just did our engagement shoot and he will also do our wedding and boudoir photos, as well as any other occasion. He is versatile and open to experimentation. A cut above the rest.

Rianna says:

Jeff did our wedding photos this September 2018. Booking Jeff was one of the BEST decisions we made while planning the wedding. We couldn't be happier with the pictures and our experience with Jeff. He captured the most beautiful moments without being invasive. I didn't even notice he was there taking pictures during the ceremony! Our engagement photo shoot and wedding portrait photoshoot was so much fun. You can tell Jeff loves photography and really listens to the wants and needs of his clients. I am not a photographic person and he made us look great, also at an incredibly reasonable price. If you want a great experience and beautiful photos, book Jeff!

Casie says:

Wow. Jeff made Pinterest 'come alive' for my engagement shoot - could not have asked for more. He made my fiance and I feel comfortable and relaxed. He literally laid in the mud at the edge of a pond and had his hair in the water to be able to get a reflection photo. Need I say more? He clearly will do what it takes to get that perfect picture and please his clients. Can not say thank you enough Jeff!

Stephanie says:

Jeff is a creative and adventurous photographer. He helped us recreate our wedding photos in a really unique way. We were so impressed with the experience and are thrilled with the results! Jeff is a talented director who worked with us and tailored to our vision. We felt very comfortable to be ourselves during the shoot. Jeff is so enthusiastic - he even laid down in the water to get the perfect shot! We were also pleasantly surprised by the quick turn-around time from shoot to prints. We highly recommend working with Jeff, you won’t regret it!

Aashish says:

We chose Jeff because we wanted a different approach to our Indian Engagement Party, rather than hiring a generic Indian photographer. We hired Jeff for the morning ceremony and evening reception. I cannot begin to express the incredible professionalism, patience, and politeness Jeff showed throughout the entire event, whilst hearing from family and friends how impressive his work ethics and dedication showed. He was dedicated, fun to work with and took excellent photos of my Fiancee and myself. I cannot begin to express my gratitude towards Jeff for going further than I expected to make my fiancee's day go smooth. I will end with saying, if Jeff is free when it comes time for wedding, I will rehire him without any hesitation or doubt. Thank you again Jeff!
