Central PA Wedding Photographer: Meg & Ken

Meg & Ken’s Central PA Wedding was fun, playful and full of joy, color and emotion.   From the bride and groom swinging together at The Fallen Tree Farm Bed & Breakfast to bridesmaids playing a game of pick-up basketball in their persimmon lace dresses to getting down on the dance floor & a celebratory firework send-off, a fabulous time was had by all.  May this love and joy follow you two through the rest of your lives!

Guy’s wedding preparations vs. girl’s wedding preparations— hahahaha

Love the ladies reactions to seeing her in her dress!

Their first look (held at the Fallen Tree Farm B&B)

^  This is ***so*** them!

The party started immediately following the ceremony for the flower girls:

During the “Shoe Game” The bride and groom were asked a series of questions by the DJ– everything from “Who said ‘I Love you’ first?” to “Who will wear the pants in the family” as you can see their disagreements were a huge source of laughter among each other and the rest of the wedding guests.

Now for the garter & bouquet:

All danced out, the perfect time for sparklers!!!

Great GREAT shots, Lisa! Beautiful light, beautiful black and white… you know just the right way to take a picture. Super well done!

JessicaJuly 4, 2012 - 1:09 am

Oh my goodness, the last photo reminds me of Norman Rockwell, totally American, with theatrical passion. It is real, but it looks so artistic that you do a double-take.

Sarah EshlemanJuly 7, 2012 - 10:02 pm

Very nice and looked so fun! Congratulations! Aj was impressed by the photography. She did a terrific job!

KAren L PitteJuly 8, 2012 - 12:44 pm

The pictures are wonderful.
Martha you should be so proud of your little girl~~they grow up so fast.
Congrats to the whole family.

EliseJuly 13, 2012 - 1:17 pm

Bridesmaids vs. Groomsmen prep made me giggle!
The first two collages stole my heart (I’m a sucker for detail).
The spontaneity captured in the pick-up basketball, flower-girl twirls, and “shoe-voting” convey *so much joy.*
Fantastic! Made me wish I was there .

[…] the best out there, we just love your work.  I also have worked with you before, for my sister, Meg’s wedding, so I know first-hand how great you are to work […]

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!



Kim SellersJuly 3, 2012 - 9:02 pm

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 😉

The rings, the thank you dish etc.. so nice. ” RAIN photo” just sooooooo BEAUTIFUL !
really really beautiful, its my favorite Lisa.

ReneeJune 30, 2012 - 7:42 pm

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!

Alyssa ShumanJune 27, 2012 - 5:38 pm

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.

Carol LovaglioJune 25, 2012 - 11:01 am

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 😉

JessicaJuly 4, 2012 - 1:17 am

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