Bri & Matt: Mercersburg Inn, Mercersburg, PA

Bri_05.jpg

It was a beautiful day in May when these two lovely folks got married at the historic Mercersburg Inn. It was a small intimate affair with an energy and emotion that I find hard to describe. So many little moments throughout the day that touched my heart and reaffirmed my reason for photographing weddings. Both Bri and Matt were utterly kind, fun, and patient the entire day and it was a joy to have been there, present at such a wonderful event. Many happy days to come and a life full of blessings to you both!

Talia & Jeremy's Beautiful Fall Wedding at Kings Gap State Park, Carlisle PA

I’ll admit, I have probably never laughed so hard during a wedding ceremony than I did at this one, but I wasn’t alone. There were a few times that we all had to take a deep breath so these to lovely folks could get to the kissing part at the end of the ceremony. It was perfect.

The humor and love between theses two was obvious and as a photographer, there is nothing better to photograph than folks who have a great time at their own wedding. It was gorgeous day up at Kings Gap State Park and the weather was kind enough to hold off the mighty winds and rain until the night was almost over.

I also wanted to give props to the bride who is a talented artist and writer. Since this wedding, I have worked with her on a personal project and she is the best. Her work and professionalism is top of the line. You should hire her.

What a truly amazing wedding this was! A beautiful day and two lovely people surrounded by their excellent family and friends. I always love to photograph at Fallen Tree Farm and couldn’t have asked for better folks to spend the day with! Much love to you Nicole and Garrett and a long and lively life together I hope you have.

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 :)

AnneMarie and John: Wedding Day at The Stone Mill 1792, Glenville, PA

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...

 

 

Ashley & Elliot: Engagement Session: Pine Grove Furnace State Park, PA

When Ashley contacted me about her wedding, I was super excited! Not only is she (and Elliot) a lovely, fun, and kind person but she is as generous as she is beautiful. One of those people, when you meet them, you know is a genuine person who knows how to have fun! They weren't sure if they wanted to do any engagement photos, but I'm so glad they did! Seeing as how they both love to be outdoors, we opted for the always gorgeous Pine Grove State Park in Gardners, PA.  I an so looking forward to this wedding in the fall :)

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!
