Surrounded by family and friends from near and far, perfect weather, and one of the best playlists ever, these two awesome folks tied the knot! Thank you for being so much fun to photograph!

PS. know I've found some of my people when the bride rides up to the ceremony site in a golf cart as the Imperial March plays :)

A beautiful, beautiful day for these two lovely people at The Stone Mill 1792! Lots of sunshine, a few clouds and lots and lots of love :)  Thanks to the new Mr. and Mrs. for being so wonderful and fun to photograph, their friends and family for being so welcoming and kind, and to Pam and Joe, the owners of the Mill, who were awesome to work with!

Ashley & Elliot: Wedding at Allenberry Resort, Boiling Springs, PA

Yesterday was a beautiful day and even more so that I got to spend it with these two lovely people. Oddly, it's not the first wedding where I got to hang out with them. A few years back I had the honor of photographing some other most excellent humans, Caitlynn and Bryon's super fun wedding, where I took the photo below.

I remember very specifically when I saw this picture as I was editing and my heart did that little thump-thump that it does when I see a photo I love. Little did I know that it was the first of many.

Time moves so fast anymore and I think of this often as I watch my daughter grow. One day she was so small, sleeping in my arms and then the next, she's telling me about the solar system and how she'll most likely not be an astronaut because she wants to train dogs and horses and surely you can't do that outer space.

Yesterday I felt some of those familiar feelings as I documented Ashley and Elliot's wedding day, and although there were no horses, we had one cute dog and two slippery trout. It seems as if little to no time has passed since I took that first photo and of course, I didn't know then I would get the privilege of photographing their wedding, but I am most surely glad I did.

Here's a little sneak peek of the day...

 

 

Kalee & Ethan's Wedding: Love, Marriage, Star Wars, and Horse Masks, Carlisle, PA

I have to say that this was one fun wedding. I knew when I first met with Kalee and Ethan that they were super sweet, smart, and had a great sense of humor, but little did I know HOW much fun they would be on their wedding day.! The wedding day was a gorgeous fall day and following a really lovely ceremony, we headed out for some photos at Pine Grove State Park. I could attempt to describe the hilarity that followed, but I'll let you see for yourself!

Much love and thanks for being so awesome to photograph, Kalee and Ethan! May The Force Be With You!!

Christina and Joe: Cameron Estate Inn, Mt. Joy PA

This beautiful September wedding took place at the eloquent Cameron Estate Inn located in Mt. Joy PA.  When I met up with Christina and Joe to do their engagement photos last fall, I knew their wedding was going to be an enormous amount of fun, which is was, but I also realized how very excellent they were to photograph. It is also such a joy when I get to make pictures of folks who love each other and have a good time in the others company,  which is exactly what these two lovely people are all about.

Thanks to you both for having me do the photography :) It was an absolute pleasure!

Cody & Josh's Wedding: Carlisle Ribbon Mill, Carlisle, PA

I knew when I met these two most excellent people that their wedding was going to be a super fun event! And of course, it was! We stared off early at the 5th Avenue Salon before going back the The Ribbon Mill to get ready and from there, it was a fun, laid back day with a very sweet and humorous ceremony and a very dance-worthy evening! I wish you long and happy life together, Cody and Josh!

Ashley and Phil: Farm Wedding, Carlisle PA

I LOVE a good “at home” wedding and this was, in fact, a particularly special wedding for me to photograph because I’ve literally watched the bride grow up over the past twenty years. As much I try (insert here every wedding) not to tear up at some point during the day, this one just couldn’t be helped when Ashley walked out of the house with her Dad. 

It was a hot day, but with the tent set atop the hill for the reception that caught the breeze and lots of cold local hand crafted beer(www.mollypitcher.com), it was a most excellent time.
