Tom & Veronica {wedding}

I was going through some of my pictures and decided i should still post some sessions from last year, even if they are a little out-dated by now.  So hopefully in the next few weeks you will see some activity on the blog. :)

Tom & Veronica were a fun couple and had a beautiful day filled with lots of sunshine and laughter.  One thing that stood out to me, is that amidst the fun and crazy times there were moments of tears and emotion.  I love to see that.  Soft hearts… overwhelmed by love and the goodness of God.

I don’t think i’ve ever taken pictures of a crazier bridal party [the guys at least]!  I had my hands full and there were very few shots where everyone was looking at the right place at the right time!  LOL :)

The wedding was full of vintage details made by the bride and her friends.  They must have spent many hours working on these beautiful projects!  Lots of lace and burlap…

Kent & Kendra {wedding}

You may wonder why you see luscious green trees and grass on these pictures… well, it’s because this photographer is running behind and still posting random sessions from last year!!  But i hope you can still enjoy them!

Meet Kent & Kendra… a sweet, young couple who had a lovely, well-organized wedding!

Georgia {love} and {sweetness}

In May of this year, I had the priviledge of shooting another wedding down South.  Francis & Nelly had a beautiful wedding all around and it was a delight to be able to capture the day!

IMG_4927

We shot the formals in 2 different locations, and my favorite was the pecan orchard.  I’ve noticed these beautiful orchards when i’ve visited in GA and i think they are so cool!  Probably because we don’t have them in PA. :)  And since the couple has memories of spending time in this romantic orchard that her family owns, it seemed like the perfect location for some photos of the 2 of them…

Jason & Janelle {wedding}

My first 2013 wedding!  I had the priviledge of going down south to capture the beautiful wedding of Jason & Janelle Knepp.  They were so relaxed and fun and you could tell they were enjoying their big day and all the many people to the fullest!  Janelle is very creative and I think she might be a perfectionist by the way it looked… classy, detailed, and organized!

Where is Spring?????

Just wondering why this photographer had to pull out her winter coat and leggings to take wedding pics in the middle of Spring!?!?  I thought this was May but it sure didn’t feel like it yesterday morning!  Oh well, God blessed John & Sari with a beautiful, sunny day and they are happily married and we got some beautiful pics, so why complain? :)

One shot from the freezing cold, but beautiful morning…IMG_3307

Ken & Heidi {wedding}

One of my favorite weddings of the year, so this is going to be a longer post! :)  I already talked about my friend Heidi and her man, when i posted their engagement pics, so maybe i’ll let the pictures share the story of their beautiful day.  It was a celebration… from early morning to late at night!  So meet Mr. & Mrs. Eash…

Patrick & Rhoda {wedding}

It started out as a very rainy morning.  Mornings like that always make me panic if i’m the wedding photographer!  So i prayed really hard, and thanks to God, by the time we were ready to take pics, it was clearing up and the sun came out!!!  What a blessing!  And Patrick & Rhoda were so fun… full of love and laughter!  The wedding was a big celebration and i think everyone had a great time!

Patrick’s little brother was the life of the party that day!  He gave us lots of good laughs, and this next picture shows a little bit of his humor…
