Beth + Patrick: Lehigh Valley Engagement Session | Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer | A Sneak Peek

Gosh, I just love when a couple is comfortable getting cozy in front of my lens!  It didn't take long for Beth and Patrick to get lost in the moment during their engagement session.   I am so looking forward to capturing their 2018 wedding in beautiful Lancaster, PA!  

Check out some of my favorites from their Lehigh Valley engagement session.  {They totally rocked it!}

Pocono Manor Resort & Spa | Pocono Wedding Photographer

I had the incredible pleasure of second shooting Steve and Melissa's wedding yesterday at Pocono Manor Resort & Spa.  The day unfolded beautifully as I began the day with the groom and groomsmen to document his "getting ready" for the big day.  Friends and family witnessed Steve and Melissa exchange their vows on the outdoor terrace, then brought the party into the Horizon Ballroom for lots of drinking, dancing, and fun.  Check out some of my favorite images from the day!

 

A special thanks to the amazing team at  Moments Remembered Photography & Videography, LLC for inviting me to share the day with them! 

Katie | Senior Portrait Session | Lehigh Valley Portrait Photographer

Katie wanted a senior portrait session that was authentically her: unique and vibrant.   You see those gorgeous paintings?  Those are her amazing creations!  Not only is she beautiful inside and out, but she’s insanely talented, too. 

Each painting she chose to incorporate in her senior session had a special meaning and place within the shoot.  Take a peek at some of the highlights from her senior portrait session and check out her incredible artwork!

A very special thank you to Sarah from Story by Design Events for her amazing job stylizing the set and for her incredible attention to detail, humor, and talent.  

Durham Hill Farm Wedding | Pipersville, PA | Bucks County Wedding Photographer

Durham Hill Farm in Pipersville, PA served as the perfect backdrop for this couple’s luxe rustic wedding.  The beautiful bank barn, sprawling horse fields, granary, carriage house, and 1812 farm house all made the perfect backdrops for some stunning bridal portraits for Jenna and Bryce. The outdoor ceremony space was a show stopper with its amazing 150 year old arbor; which also made the perfect frame for their first kiss. 

Bryce requested some shots with his beautiful bride in front of Durham Hill’s Ford Model T farm truck and I was happy to oblige!

Branches and Blooms Design sculpted incredible centerpieces which highlighted the rustic farmhouse tables in their reception space and Noble Sweets brought the sweetness with a savory spread of assorted wedding cake alternatives. 

We finished up the night with a shot of apple pie moonshine in the barn and sent Jenna and Bryce on to begin their “happily ever after.” 


Penn's Peak | Jim Thorpe, PA | Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer

Sara and Joe have a super special spot in my heart.  For one, Joe (eternally known as “Joey” in our house) has been a friend of my husband’s since childhood.  And Sara, well, I knew I loved her the first time she signed an e-mail to me with a “K, love you, bye!”

I first worked with the two of them a few months ago during their rainy day engagement session and it was obvious from the start of that session that they were going to be a blast to work with on their wedding day.

Prior to any wedding I am photographing, I endlessly stalk the weather.  As the days went on and we got closer and closer to Joe(y) and Sara’s wedding day, it became increasingly obvious that the rainy theme of their engagement session was going to translate to their wedding day, too.  After many phone calls and Plan B’s (and even Plan C’s) we decided to alter our timeline a bit and have our “First Look” at the Dimmick Memorial Library in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.   The folks over at the Dimmick Memorial Library have my eternal thanks for allowing us to use their second story loft so we could hide from the rain. 

Thankfully, the weather cooperated for a short time, allowing Sara and Joe to say their “I do’s” on the outdoor patio at Penn’s Peak.  The rain caused a beautiful fog to roll up the mountainside, making for a breathtaking scene as they committed themselves to one another.    

Their day was absolutely incredible and so full of love and celebration.  I am so thankful to have been there to capture each moment and detail for them. 

Best wishes to many, many years of blessings and happiness to you both, Sara and Joe.

“K, love you (both), bye.”

A special thanks to all of the amazing vendors for helping to create such a flawless day and to my second shooter, Jillian, for being my right-hand lady for the day!
