Lehigh Valley Wedding photographer: Cassie & Oren at Bear Creek

Airplanes, Ski lifts, and killer Tango moves:  Cassie and Oren’s Lehigh Valley Wedding was held at Bear Creek and featured a vibrant couple with abundant energy and unique interests.  They wove a beautiful interfaith wedding ceremony that included both Jewish and Christian wedding traditions, showing honor to both families and creating a beautiful union of the two.  Here are a few of my favorite images:

The ladies’ gifts, monogrammed bath robes– so cute with their mimosas 😉

Cassie slipping hon her dancing shoes: I love how you can already taste a bit of “tango” flavor that is to come ^

Cassie and Oren both have a news background, hence the boquet microphone ^

Oren and his dad built an airplane together– he’s *that* into planes.  No, I did not photoshop the sky behind his cuff links ^

Time for the first look:

Oren couldn’t resist…

How happy are they? ^

During the signing of the Ketubah, family members and friends give advice to the couple ^

Bear creek is reflected in the goblet (above) passing out Yamakas and calling family in Israel (below)

Family members stood together and read different passages during the ceremony, you could almost feel the families growing together ^

Now for the tango:

The speeches were touching, witty and very well received by wedding guests–  it was very difficult to choose a favorite speech photo.

I doubt this photo needs a caption, as the resemblance is so clear, but this is Cassie dancing with her father 🙂

Hahaha I see many children in your future 😉 :

You’ve seen it coming, so here it is, the havanaglia:

Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer: Kyrie & Andrew’s Stormy Country Wedding

60 mph winds and 100% chance of rain as the forecast for your OUTDOOR wedding– it is probably a bride’s worst nightmare.  But in all honesty, this was one of the most romantic weddings I have ever witnessed.  Kyrie’s diy decor and whimsical country style was absolutely charming, but what blew me away (aside from the wind, haha)  was close-knit family love, their patience, hope and optimism for this wedding day and for this young couple.

Their whimsical country decor included vintage keys, books and china and even a monogrammed “door-knob boquet”

Wind and dark skies turned into a downpour.  The tent held tables set with silver, crystal & china started to collapse, but family and friends ran out and held up the tent poles in the rain, waiting for the storm to pass.   Below one man runs out to help as he does, he is reflected in the rain drops:

The scene inside the house included people chatting, drying off and Kyrie waiting by the window, hoping for the best:

There was a lull in the storm, it hadn’t stopped raining, but the weather was much more agreeable.  Kyrie decided to get married outside as planned, she slipped on rainboots and was ready to go  😉  It was one of those lemons-into-lemonade situations and one of the most beautiful and romantic ceremonies I have witnessed, it certainly felt like a “movie moment” and really shows the character of this couple & the support that they have in their family and friends.

There were a wide variety of games and activities (croquet, ladder golf, etc) face painting was popular, especially with the boys:

Lisa, these are absolutely incredible– you captured our story and families so perfectly! Instead of looking back and thinking “wet!” I will look at these beautiful photos and be reminded of how loved we felt on our wedding day. Thank you for joining us in the pouring rain to take these. I think I was the happiest drenched bride ever 🙂

Rachel EllisOctober 4, 2012 - 6:17 pm

Shippensburg Photographer: Oasis of Love Church

When the Oasis of Love church contacted me, they were looking for professional head shots that they would be able to use in printed literature and online as well as photos that show the life and spirit of their church.  We were able to capture the pastor at the pulpit, the youth minister with the children and several other members of leadership in their element, as well as the passion and enthusiasm of the church as a whole.

Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer: Kyrie & Andrew’s “Up” Engagement

Kyrie and Andrew wanted to incorporate the Disney/Pixar movie “Up” into their engagement shoot because of the love story, which is incredibly beautiful.  If you haven’t seen it, you should really check out this little clip.  They painted a birdhouse like Ellie & Carl’s, had a “grape soda” pin and lots of gorgeous balloons.  They watched the clouds together, washed windows, read books, and made a mailbox just like the one in the movie, adding a hand print for their little Rowan.  I hope you will be as charmed by this lovely couple and young family as I am.


A note from Kyrie and Andrew: “Why are we inspired by UP? Like Ellie and Carl, we believe That the greatest adventure in life Is to share it with someone you LOVE. The themes of their love story match our own- The promise of growing old together, Final great adventures,Recovering from loss, And finding inspiration in unexpected places…On our first date we watched Aladdin And the first movie we fell in LOVE with together was Finding Nemo. Disney became a part of our relationship by telling great stories, Making us laugh, And reminding us that there is a child in each of us, No matter how grown up we become.”  All the best with your latest adventure, little Rowan!

I loved this !!! Not only the photo’s but the wonderful words in the note – Bless this family ! Lisa that last photo gets me all the time : ) I put a dvd of UP in my daughters bridal shower “movie” basket along with pop corn, cozy soft throws for bride & groom etc… I cry easy so I better get a box of tissue ready !

Old City Philadelphia Engagement Photographer: Tammy & Eric

Tammy & Eric met in Philly at Villanova and have been together ever since.  It was my pleasure to walk with them in Old City Philly, amoung the bustling people, iron gates and cobblestone streets.   The second part of thier shoot was at sunset and then in the dark, so that combined with the location really gave them a timeless, yet modern feel that suits them well.  Tammy and Eric, is was great meeting you both in person and I can’t wait for your wedding at Glen Foerd Mansion!
