Spring Cherry Blossom Engagement Session | Season & Kurt

I met Season & Curt at my office one day with both of my kids in tow. I was pretty much completely convinced that I would never book their wedding (my kids were acting like zoo animals that day… of course!) but there was something about them that I just loved. I reached out to them a few days later and much to my surprise they were not terrified of me or my children, and I am SO looking forward to photographing their wedding in Lancaster next year.

We got to photograph their engagement session (my kids were NOT with me this time, hallelujah) at the gorgeous Rohrbach’s cherry and peach orchards this Spring, which was the perfect place for their late April session, just as the leaves were starting to make an appearance here in Pennsylvania.

Season & Curt are both recently graduated Physician’s Assistants who love to cook and read. They even brought me some of their favorite snacks to our engagement session (which hardly made it back to my house) - such an unexpected and thoughtful treat!

Curt popped the question to Season by setting up a little Easter egg hunt in their apartment one day, with the ring hidden in an egg, so I think the Spring engagement session was the perfect way to celebrate their engagement. Enjoy this little glimpse into their Spring Cherry blossom engagement session at Rohrbachs!

Snowy Winter General Potter Farm Wedding | Jessica & Nate

I love winter weddings SO much, and this snowy winter General Potter Farm wedding in January was one of the most beautiful winter weddings, ever! There’s something about a beautiful rustic barn wedding with a touch of elegance and Jessica & Nate certainly pulled that off with the help of their amazing vendors!

With Christmas trees carefully placed throughout General Potter Farm in Spring Mills with white lights, the winter theme made the barn so cozy, like you entered a wintry dream! A Christmas tree farm down the road was used as our portrait location for both the wedding party and bride & groom portraits, and we even had some recent snowfall which was on Jessica’s wish list - making the day extra perfect!

Jessica & Nate love hiking & adventuring outdoors, so their winter wedding was a perfect celebration of the two of them as a couple. When asked what they were going for with their wedding ‘theme’, Jessica answered by saying, “We're really going for a rustic, woodsy feel. I'm positive Nathan was a lumberjack in his former life and I love being outside in the woods. Our wedding venue is very indicative of this.”.

Jessica & Cody | Shickshinny Engagement Session

It's hard to imagine right now that just a week or so ago we were having steady 60 and 70 degree days... come back warm Spring air!  We took advantage of one of those gorgeous days for Jessica & Cody's Shickshinny engagement session on their beautiful property where they are planning their backyard wedding this summer!  I'm so excited to see this property in all it's glory once things are in bloom and the trees are green.  Congratulations Jessica & Cody...

Stone Hedge Winter Wedding | Lynette & Jacob

Lynette & Jacob celebrated a perfect day on a December afternoon in Northeastern Pennsylvania!  This Stone Hedge Winter Wedding was such a beautiful affair (seriously, I just love the Christmas season... throw in a wedding and it's perfection).  The bride was going for a vintage Winter wedding inspiration, so Lynette's gorgeous backless lace gown paired with the bridesmaids sophisticated champagne dresses were beautifully accented by subtle pops of deep cranberry & merlot in the bouquets.  Oh, did I forget to mention punches of metallic gold in Lynette's killer shoes? stonhedge-golf-course-christmas-weddingstonhedge-golf-course-christmas-weddingstonhedge-golf-course-christmas-wedding

Upon arriving at the hotel where Lynette & the her bridal party were getting ready, I spotted a dish of candy that I knew I wanted to somehow incorporate into my ring shots.  I love keeping things natural and incorporating only elements from a wedding day that are actually there.  Found items, such as these peppermint candies help to tell a little more of the story!

What is your favorite memory from the day? Oh to pick just one is so hard. Seeing Jacob as I walked out onto the isle in the church, after the ceremony getting to relax and have fun with pictures with Jacob and the bridal party, the speeches, and at the end of the night when all the formalities were done and we could let loose and have fun on the dance floor with all of our friends and family!
