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 😉

I attend this church and know the bride and her family; these are beautiful pictures! Your work is truly exceptional. The rooftop sunset shot is gorgeous.

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!!!

Harrisburg Engagement Photographer: Kerri & Tim

This fun-loving couple was a blast to photograph—from playing cards to releasing balloons and playing guitar, these two are a perfect pair.  They have a refreshing, playful attitude and are just as whitty as they are adorable together.  Kerri grew up spending time on her parents boat, so she knew incorporating docks would be key, Tim played a lot of card games with his family growing up, so we knew we’d want to fit those in as well.

save the date, folks ^^^  (told you they were clever!) 😉

Kerri is teaching Tim guitar– man, I love their hair ^^^

I *love* this shoot: tender, graceful, contemplative, sweet, playful. It makes my heart soar like those balloons!

Rachel KilleenJune 8, 2012 - 8:34 am

Could you two be any cuter?! Beautiful pictures. Good job, photog!

Shippensburg Senior Portrait Photographer: Madeline

There is a depth and surreal-ness to Madeline.  She is a free spirit and offers a unique perspective that is truly her own.  Her words are genuine and her thoughts are deep and often unexpected, her point of view is beyond interesting.  One of her favorite places to hang out is the Thought Lot, it is everything from an art gallery to farmers market to local music venue, so it was a perfect place to start our shoot.

Madeline is Vegan, so incorporate fruits and veggies was key. 😉

^A little yoga

All she needs are wings here ^

Heather MeyersJune 5, 2012 - 8:38 pm

wow. the yoga one is just freakin amazing! such spell-bounding artful images!!!!!!!

Carol LovaglioJune 5, 2012 - 11:59 pm

Ok….. I want to know did you go to school for photography or are you just blessed with this keen eye and also when did you first realize I think I’ve got it !!!!

Madeline’s – every single pic ! she must be so happy with the results. yoga pose…. all she needs are wings…. the last one…. all just amazing.

James W.June 6, 2012 - 12:41 am

Oh wow.. These are absolutely incredible. You captured her spirit wonderfully. The one of her sitting on the fallen tree is gorgeous! Well, they all are really. Awesome!

Jacqueline K. PerdasJune 6, 2012 - 7:07 am

I would love to see more of this shoot! Madeline is captured beautifully in your images. I feel her presence most in the two B/W’s with the dandelion and the hand-art play. How such a tiny part of her becomes her whole being is a blend of your talent, Madeline, and your special relationship with each other.

SyshaJune 6, 2012 - 8:21 am

Madeline has such beautiful eyes!! Your description of her at the beginning is spot on. The faerie pose pic is amazing! The yoga pic is also incredible. Love!

SusanJune 6, 2012 - 11:53 am

These are amazing Lisa! Thank you again. You did an incredible job at really capturing Madeline’s spirit and beauty. So many of her interests and loves captured in a gorgeous manner. (I’m just surprised not to see one with her ukulele….yet??) Wonderful!
