their day was planned out for years. every detail covered. a gorgeous couple who got married in a church that has so much sentimental value and a celebrated at a venue that holds such history and memories with the family as well!I took total advantage of the beauty of the inside of the church. Why not hang her dress where here family walked through those doors probably thousands of times. It means just a little bit more. these flowers though: Cambria City Flowershair and make was on point: Beautiful Dream Teamellen’s mom was just as excited as her for her big day!first look with dad 🙂isn’t she just stunning?!?  how proud would her grandfather be? he was the pastor in this church for many years. her dad grew up in this church, and her whole family have spent so much time here.  I love it when places mean so much to those involved. Andy’s dad handing over the keys……just for the day 😉Andy looked so very handsome himself!so much anticipation waiting for his bride!!!love these exit shots!Andy’s dad has the coolest old car….painted “ocean blue”, perfect to go with their subtle beach theme!the green gables has such a unique, rustic and an outdoor feel situated in a quaint setting like a hidden gem.  absolutely loved how Ellen and Andy decorated the venue, letting the rustic tables character be exposed and adding a bit of gold sequence for glam, then adding the subtle beach theme and greenery. it was gorgeous and the night was heavily celebrated by all! 

congratulations Ellen & Andy!!

the burns family…featuring miss cecelia of course!!! some of you may remember this family’s story from a year and a half ago. it was a pleasure to have documented that time in their lives, and now fast forward to their still ever adorable cecelia who absolutely has her parents wrapped around their fingers and completely stole my heart. she is the sweetest. you know you have made a friend, when she wants to ride in my very own car down a back country road between locations!  brad and carissa, you are lucky i didn’t just take her home with me!

The Kerr family has expanded by one adorable little boy named Gannon!  He could be a fire fighter like daddy…..and most defiantly a Penn State fan like mommy!  And big sis Lily, will show him the way around the farm! He was such a good baby for our shoot and I can’t wait to see him grow!

These pictures are wonderful !


this beautiful couple had such an amazing day! so happy together!the butler mansion had such charming and unique points of interest inside and out. what a pleasure it was shooting there! all dressed taking in the moment. just stunning!!so how many chandeliers can be in one photo?? in the photo above…..4! so many chandeliers!! the inside of the mansion is gorgeous, and the outside has lush greenery and gardens! how perfect!
lauren you are sooooo stunning! gaaahhh!Sean looked so handsome himself! like a true princess, peaking out the mansion window waiting for her prince to walk out….sean was so blown away when lauren arrived into his hands……he said something on the lines of “YOU LOOK AMAZING!”
I have heard a lot of toasts in my day…..some good, some bad….some we won’t talk about. I feel 3 things to a successful speech is to be have your audience laugh, cry and feel the love. these 2 two toasts….did just that!!
when the photog catches you doing a snapchat video. lolwhat a wonderful group of people!!! I love my job!
