my last wedding of 2013, and it was a gorgeous one!! the weather, the bride, the dresses, the details! perfectly planned out by jenna herself! we’ll start with her mothers wedding veil she had remade into her own!
i loved the girls dresses, they were classy and the color was so rich and beautiful!jenna made a beautiful bride!!you can’t tell, because justin looks so calm, cool and handsome…..but he really was a ball of nerveslove, love, love the next sequence of photos, upon jenna’s request she wanted to have this moment with justin BEFORE the ceremony. i think this may have calmed justin’s nerves a bit!3 adorable kiddos!! family of the bride and groom.TOTAL surprise to jenna, justin and her guests was…..ELVIS! i loved it! they were in total shock!!
he really put on a good show, and so did jenna & justin!
october 26th was my 4th year for fall and christmas mini sessions. i only do this once a year, and they are so popular!! once i announced the sessions, all 16 slots were filled within 2 hours! 2 hours?! that’s what i said, i couldn’t believe it! everyone booked without seeing a set up, or really knowing what i had in store! i would like to think my clients put total trust in my professionalism and judgement…i am hoping i made them happy this year!!my previous mini session location for the last 3 years, sadly does not exsist anymore. but fortunately, i found a new perfect location for this year and for years to come! yay!of the 16 families booked, of course some loyal ckp clients, some brand new ones, and some old faces i was so happy to see again! some traveled a short distance, others drove 3+ hours for their 15 minutes session. i am honestly so honored and blessed to have this opportunity to work with so many wonderful people! i have the best clients ever!! this year only 2 families chose a simple fall scene, the other 14 families went with the “home for the holidays” christmas set up. i love bringing a vision together. i knew what i wanted it to look like, and somehow it all worked out, and i couldn’t have been happier! so here they are! enjoy the sneak peaks…..just one shot of each family!!
cody & britney got married on one of the most beautiful fall days this year! it was probably close to 80 degrees, cloudy with peaks of sunshine on and off, just perfect!! britney, a johnstown native got ready in her childhood home with her family and friends just adoring her on her special day. cody, his parents and his guys all got ready at britney and cody’s new home the recently purchased together. after their traditional catholic mass cereomy and before their big reception we had LOTS of time to shoot bridal portraits! my favorite! sorry for the bride and groom portrait overload…..but i couldn’t help myself. The johnstown incline, luzerne street and downtown johnstown were perfect spots, and we took full advantage!
i am so lucky that i get to document all of this families important milestones!!! engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, 6 months, and 1 year photos!!! how is it possible that this couple, alicia & josh (and mia too) have a one year old little man?? i feel like i was shooting their engagement photos yesterday! such a beautiful family aren’t they? kamden is quite the little ham and we had so much fun enjoying what is left of our beautiful fall days! he wasn’t so sure about all of those leaves though…..or why in fact we were throwing them at him. he’ll get it next yearthese next few are my favorites! pure joy! and sisterly love!!annnnnndd….we had a little micky themed cake smash!!guilty or innocent?!?
