Shippensburg Family Photographer: Meet the Lehman Family

The Lehman family contacted me wanting traditional family portraits to be taken while their daughter was visiting from China.  They wanted a nice family photo of all of them together and head shots of each member as well.  They also hoped to capture the joyful spirits of their young grandchildren.   Shippensburg is such a beautiful place, here is the view from their backyard:

Metropolian Museum of Art Engagement Photographer: Eileen & Kevin in NYC

I met Eileen and Kevin at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for their engagement photos.As they explored the museum, they saw everything from Egyptian tombs to Asian Gardens to Greek sculptures– we had many opportunities for just the type of creative, artistic shots that they like!  They are so great together– happy, fun and very much in love.  I wish you both all the very best!!!

Skytop Lodge Wedding Photographer: Laini & Kyle

Laini and Kyle’s colorful garden wedding was held at the beautiful Skytop Lodge.  They had a bright, sunny day and added tangerine and pink tropical flowers (as a nod to their meeting at the University of Florida), wow do their colors pop!  They also incorporated several Jewish traditions and offered fun entertainment for the guests (archery, golf, pool, etc).   A huge thank you to my friend Jim for his assistance second-shooting this wedding!!!!

Did you notice the wedding date? ^^^

Here are a few of the Jewish traditions, below is the cup of wine and Laini being escorted by both parents when she meets Kyle beneath the Chuppah:

Skytop lodge uses antique locks and keys during their tradition where the bride and groom add their lock to the trellis on their wedding day.

While Laini & Kyle were out and about exploring the Skytop grounds together, their guests were enjoying hors d’oeuvres and sports 🙂

The Horah begins with a rather innocent seeming circle, soon the bride and groom are hoisted up on chairs surrounded by crowds of people, so much fun!!!!!

The festivities were followed by several touching toasts:

Laini and Kyle, I wish for the same measure of happiness and joy from your wedding day to follow you both throughout your lives!


LainiJuly 21, 2012 - 7:29 pm

State College Wedding Photographer: Roxy & Eric the Arboretum at Penn State

To say Roxy and Eric are Penn State fans would be the understatement of the year.   Their Penn State themed wedding in State College, PA featured several PSU locations including Old Main, Beaver Stadium,  the Nittany Lion shrine, and their gorgeous ceremony location, the Arboretum at Penn State.   Roxy & Eric are authentic, fun and like to party, but I think I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story. A huge thank you to my friend, Miguel for second-shooting this wedding with me, he’s awesome!!!

Eric wrote Roxy a heartfelt letter:

The bridesmaids were given matching pearl bracelets– below Roxy & her sister are holding her bouquet with the locket in memory of their father:

Love the socks!!!!!!

Eric & his dad:

The Penn State theme followed through to the reception, with blue uplighting on the walls and each table had the name a favorite place in State College as their table number, guests ate * delicious* paw print cupcakes, place cards looked like tickets to a football game, even her garter had a nittany lion on it.  This shows their nittany lion logo reception entrance:

This group knew how to party, even grandma strutted her stuff on the dance floor:

I think they hold the record for having the most fun with the bouquet and garter, hahahaha!

Their DJ, Jaime from house rockers, did a great job with getting everybody on the dance floor and changing up the atmosphere with lights and props.

Pittsburgh Engagement Photographer: Sarah & Jason

Sarah & Jason’s engagement session features a fun, chic couple, a beautiful summer day and the gorgeous city skyline of one of my favorite cities, Pittsburgh!  We started in station square and then took the Duquesne Incline up to Mount Washington where we could see the city & three sisters (yellow steel bridges) & explored a bit.  I could not get over the blue sky and all the lines and textures of the downtown.  Do I love my job?  Yes!
