Carlisle Family Photographer: Elli’s First Birthday

Elli is a joyful and spirited little girl with charming curiosity and toddlerific energy.  She has two parents that love her very much and are savoring every minute.   They chose King’s Gap Mansion as thier location for the beutiful gardens and brought along a few of Elli’s favorite things as well as,  you guessed it, a first birthday cupcake.  Enjoy!

Love her eyelashes (above) and this super sweet moment with dad (below)

And she’s off!!!!  This is my attempt of trying to capture the movement of a toddler:

Teeny tiny fingers on balloon strings ^

And finally the birthday cupcake– The taste, the shove, the clap, the icing face– love it!

Lisa, you have absolutely captured Elli’s personality. LOVE the one with her and daddy- so sweet and my favorite is her in the chair. I will treasure these forever!

Carlisle Wedding Photographer: Jo & Eric at the Carlisle Ribbon Mill

Josefine and Eric are witty, thoughtful and deeply in love.  Their wedding was completely unique– from the hand-picked collection of vintage china plates at dinner,  to the pretty ribbon backdrop (a perfect fit for their reception at The Carlisle Ribbon Mill in Central PA), to the vows they wrote for each other– their wedding was tailored exactly to fit them.  There were many vintage-inspired touches and overall it had a light, summery feel and was emotion-filled, heart-felt and just a beautiful event to be a part of.  Thanks for sharing your very special day with me, I wish you all the very best in the future!!!

^ Ready for their first look

^ Awesome shoes, guys

Then they headed to the Gingerbread Man— such a great atmosphere– loved the leather and woodwork, too!

Neat brick crosswalk on the square ^ then below, the ribbon mill and a close up view of a few of the ribbons and details that Jo and her fam/friends brought:

^ Josefine and Eric’s mothers.

Jo’s mother singing during the wedding and below is Jo’s reaction to her song.

The antique china doubled as place settings and guest gifts as people were encouraged to take theirs home.  My favorite was the cherry blossom plate.

^ I love a rainy night!!!  Please feel free to comment below 😉

What a beautiful wedding! And taking an antique dish home with you? Very unique idea!

You do such a wonderful job with your photography!!! The way in which you capture special moments is just exquisite!!!

I, too, LOVED the rain picture…and also the reflection in the glass window!

Talented and gifted!

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.

amy lymanJune 25, 2012 - 11:48 am

Tears as we speak. Thank you so much Lisa, they are beautiful!

ValerieJune 28, 2012 - 12:15 pm

Love this family & you captured them! tears 😉

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 😉
