Award Winning PA Wedding Photographers

Here are a few of the reviews that helped us to earn the Couple’s Choice Award for 2015…

“If I could give more than 5 stars I would! She’s the real deal people!!! The first thing we did after we got engaged was look for a photographer, we knew it was something we didn’t want to skimp on. As I was searching the internet I came across Lisa and found myself continually coming back as nothing else compared!

We made a rather late night meeting due to our busy schedules and she never made us feel as if we were inconveniencing her. We ended up moving from New Jersey to Maryland before our wedding and the distance was never an issue. Lisa really takes the time to get to know you and your story to incorporate it in her photos. Our wedding was in the OBX and to our delight she was happy to travel:)

I can honestly say, 110%, that without Lisa there the day of our wedding it would not have gone as smoothly and absolutely perfect as it did. We had a day-of coordinator that seemed to be MIA but fortunately for us Lisa was very organized and helped keep things moving and on schedule. She was definitely a key player in keeping me sane on a very busy day (I can’t thank you enough Lisa!!!) To say we would recommend Lisa is an understatement– she’s AMAZING!” ~Meghan & Mike

“The casual, yet warm approach Lisa brings to every client interaction was the first sign that she would be the perfect fit for our wedding. She is incredibly thoughtful and captures emotion and personality in every image she takes. Ever flexible and kind, she made sure that she was photographing our story in a way that we would recognize instead of forcing us into inorganic poses for the sake of a shot.

Every part of our process with her was perfect. She got to know us with our engagement shoot, wow’ed us with our editorially inspired wedding photos, and made us tear up when we received our stunning album.

By hiring Lisa, we didn’t just get an artistically gifted wedding professional, but we also got a storyteller and a friend. Hiring her would be the best choice you can make for your wedding as photography is the only thing that will truly immortalize your day.” –Kyle & Kaylan

“We saw Lisa’s photos online and both were just amazed ! We knew we wanted Lisa Rhinehart for our photographer and she has never ceased to amaze us with her artistic ability and fabulous, professional personality! The engagement photos Lisa took of us where just fabulous and stunning. She really knows how to cater to her clients wishes and come up with innovative ideas!

The day of the wedding wow Lisa was just amazing. She kept everyone on track and at ease. The photos are to say the least the breathe taking and we love them! The photos to us meant everything as we decided to not go with a videographer and we made the absolute best decision by going with Lisa Rhinehart! We are glad Lisa chose us as clients. If you really want the best photos hands down you must book Lisa Rhinehart Photography !

In addition, Lisa has earned fearless awards and is one of the top 100 wedding photographers in the nation! Thank you Lisa for all you do! We think you are the best!” –Marissa & Joe

“Selecting Lisa as our wedding photographer was one of the easiest (and best!) decisions we made during our entire wedding-planning process. After our initial consultation with her, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with her (and I am normally the type of person who likes to explore my options and deliberate decisions, so that says a lot coming from me!)

Her photographs caught my eye from the beginning…so stunning and unique with crisp, vivid colors. And on top of her amazing work, she is also highly organized, detail-oriented, and very personable! All of the things we were looking for in a photographer!

During the year leading up to our wedding, Lisa really took the time to get to know us and learn about what was important to us. She put a lot of effort into making our wedding photographs (and engagement photographs) unique to us. We ended up with so many beautiful photos from our wedding day! We don’t even know where to begin selecting our favorites. Our family and friends have really been enjoying them too and can’t stop talking about how amazing they all are.

Lisa and Kris (her husband and 2nd shooter) were a great presence to have around on the day of our wedding. They are calm, easy-going, and friendly, and Lisa kept the photo schedule moving along smoothly.

All in all, we had a wonderful experience, and Lisa will be our photographer of choice for any photography needs in the future!”  –Katelyn & Blake

“Lisa Rhinehart is the best of the best when it comes to photography! When my husband and I started looking for engagement/wedding photographers we knew we didn’t want someone that was going to just do the standard posed photography that you see so often. We wanted something that was unique and personal to us and our story.

One look at Lisa’s blog and I knew I would not settle for anyone else except her to do our engagement and wedding pictures. We pretty much planned our wedding around the dates that she was available. Lisa took the time to get to know Matt and I, she asked a lot of questions and even had us fill out worksheets getting to us and exactly what we wanted.  Our engagement pics were done at the York Fair and they turned out beautiful!!!! Everyone that saw them couldn’t believe that a photographer would go to the fair and pretty much just follow us around riding rides, playing games, and eating and come out with such beautiful pictures.

For our wedding day Lisa and her husband Kris were AMAZING!  Lisa met with us before the wedding to come up with a timeline for the day so that everything would run smoothly and everyone would know what time to be where.  The day of the wedding I didn’t have to worry about anything because I knew she had it under control.

She even came to my apartment and photographed me with my cat, Grover, b/c she knew how much I wanted a pic of him with me in my wedding dress! Lisa was so professional and organized, we couldn’t be happier! We just recently picked up our wedding album that she made for us and it is beautiful!!!!!!!! Anyone that wants pictures that look like they were taken right out of a magazine Lisa is your girl!!!!!”  –Jennifer & Matthew

Liberty Mountain Resort Engagement Photographer: Snowboarding with Brianna & Jake

Snowboarders in their element!!! A snowy evening on the slopes with two high school sweethearts…

Liberty Mountain Resort Wedding Photographer Engagement Photographer Creative (1)

I’ll start out with some backstory…  Brianna & Jake met in highschool– he was senior who played the drums and could *drive* which is totally impressive to any 15 year old girl,  haha.  But their relationship grew into much more as they got to know each other over the years…

Brianna & Jake have become each other’s best friend & support.  Jake fell for Brianna’s kind heart, the way she is a thoughtful, honest and caring.  Brianna loves how Jake is driven and able to set and achieve his goals, follow his beliefs and how important family is to him.

Jake knew Brianna was “the one” for years, but waited for the right timing.  Once they settled into their careers (Jake is an engineer and Brianna is a teacher) it was time to pop the question.  Here is the beautiful ring he used to propose:

They chose Liberty Mountain Resort for their engagement session because it is one of their favorite places to be together as they pretty much spend the entire winter there.  They even daydream about it during the summer months.  Actually, you will be seeing more of them at Liberty Mountain Resort on my blog this summer as they also chose it as their wedding venue, too!

Jake has a great sense of humor and is quick on his feet, both he and Brianna enjoy bringing out each others witty, silly side.  I thought this image really captured that part of their personalities with Brianna’s “fish-bowl” reflection in Jake’s goggles, hehe.  Love his grin here, too…

Liberty Mountain Resort Wedding Photographer Engagement Photographer Creative (4)

They both mentioned how much they support each other which I think comes across in this photo particularly…I also like how you can see thier snowboards and ski lift too, it gives you a sense of place as well as emotion ;).

They can snowboard holding hands which is pretty cute– Jake faces backward while Brianna faces forward.  They have been doing this for a while but one of the first times when Jake was teaching himself to snowboard backwards and Brianna took his hands to help him to balance, so apparently she is literally supportive of him, too, haha.

I loved the vibrant color from the backlit tree and nearly purple sky, I also like how it was actually snowing during our shoot, pretty cool!

I tried to get a little creative here, playing with the lighting in this image, I wanted a dark sky and bright snowflakes and ended up using a gridded off camera flash.   I love it’s emotion, contrast, depth and texture.  Guys you are adorable.
