Hauser Winery Photographer: Amanda & Randy’s Engagement

Amanda & Randy are relaxed, comfortable and easy going–  together they just “fit.”  Something they enjoy together is wine, so what better place to meet than Hauser Winery?  At Hauser, they could enjoy a glass of wine as well as see the cask room with all the wine barrels and before leaving enjoy a romantic moment in the rain.   It was a pleasure meeting you both and I can’t wait for your wedding at the Inn at Leola Village next year!

^ The reflection in the wine glass seems to be one step ahead of Amanda & Randy 😉

^ I love this moment– it feels like it’s straight out of a movie or something– so awesome that they braved the rain– and worth it!

Photos look great! Amanda, beautiful as always! Randy, welcome to the family! So excited for the both of you 🙂

Shippensburg Family Photographer: Lyman family

I had a blast working with this family of 9– yes 2 parents and 7 kids!  They are an active, energetic group with a definite love of learning and distinct sense of humor (even the youngest of the group can crack a good joke or get a bit of sarcasm in, haha!).  They have varied interests from sports to reading to hiking and everything in between.   We were able to get a few group photos, a portrait of each member and a couple of fun/creative shots as well.

^ peace.

So Happy, loving, joyful is the way this family was done. Last shot – I could not believe my eyes. I hope you are used to me by now that I have to comment 🙂 I am what is known as a true fan of your work/art.

Wow, the reflection/lake shot is comical and joyful, and the silhouette at the end is just great as well.

Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer: Vicky & Daryl at Allentown Brew Works

Vicky and Daryl enjoyed a rainbow-studded church ceremony and a great party atmosphere that included a private moment of dancing on the rooftop with a birds-eye-view of the city at sunset.  They have an eclectic taste from their traditional church wedding and Celtic wedding bands to the modern vibe of the Allentown Brew Works and her sparkling gold platform pumps– Vicky & Daryl’s wedding style was tailored perfectly to fit them.  Enjoy 🙂

^ Can you see her dress?

Symbols on their bands were originally penned by Celtic monks in “The Book of Kells” ^

^ This may give you goosebumps: Vicky wanted to wear this rose gold bracelet in memory of her mother on her wedding day– it had been in her mothers family and what her mother had worn on her wedding day.   Vicky’s step mother mentioned having a bracelet that had been passed down in her own family that she would like Vicky to wear as well.  When Vicky saw the two bracelets together she realized they were identical, *exactly* the same!!!

^ Vicky strung crystal beads and with the help of friends and family hung them across the church balconies  to create rainbows during their ceremony

^ These petals look like a heart, no?

^ Showing her grandmother her wedding band

^ Dancing duet: Vicky danced with her father while Daryl danced with his mother

^ This dance move reminded me of something from “Matrix”

^ “Jump up and shout now” I love when people dance to the classics!

They were given the special opportunity of climbing onto the roof of the Allentown Brew Works during sunset– what a perfect night for it!

Thanks for viewing the photos!  I’d love to hear your thoughts– feel free to comment below 😉

Shippensburg Engagement Photographer: Jenny & Tim’s at Toigo orchard

Jenny and Tim are pleasant, kind and just a joy to be around.  We found a perfect little spot in Shippensburg for thier apple-themed engagement– toigo orchards— a small farm with a relaxed country feel that fit this couple perfectly and gorgous grounds including a pretty view of the trees and sunset.  Jenny and Tim I wish you all the best and am excited to photograph your lehigh valley wedding next year!

                                                                                                                                Save the date ^

Jenny is a teacher, so the chalkboards and apples were a cute fit. 😉

A nod to Tim’s proposal–  I love how it looks like you can reach out and touch her ring!

Love the first pic and the last pic (well, and all the other in between 🙂 Such a great idea with carving the apples!!!

Penn State Family Photography: Carolyn’s PhD Commencement Celebration

Carolyn has been working on her doctorate ever since we have met, so when she contacted me to capture her family gathering together to attend her doctoral commencement, I was definitely excited.  I had met her husband’s family last year for a family photo, and this year her family would be in attendance upon her receipt of her Penn State PhD.  We had a good mix of fun, traditional portraiture and Nittany Lion spirit.

We ended with a Carolyn-Drew-Eric group hug  again (its neat to see how much Drew has grown since last year) and a special moment with Eric and Drew.  Callaghan family, thank you again- it is always a pleasure!!!
