Eric and Lisa – Engagement Session

2015-03-30

A few times each season I luck out with the dreamiest weather conditions for the session I am photographing. This folks, was one of those times. The sunniest, melt your eyes dusk sunset graced a little walking trail by F&M College in Lancaster City for my engagement session with Eric and Lisa. They probably thought I was wing-bat crazy by the way I was geeking out over the images on my camera. But once they saw them, they totally joined me in my parade of happy dancing around in excitement! It’s rare when the weather syncs up with your ideal setting and creates the best canvas for photos. S’good.

Shortly after our engagement session last Summer, Eric and Lisa tied the knot in the most beautiful Fall wedding on October 11th, 2014. It was so fun getting to know them at this session and then later witnessing them make their life long commitment to love one another forever. I swear I tear up every time. One of the reasons we highly recommend booking a package that includes an engagement session (or adding on an engagement session) is because it gives us a chance to truly get to know you as a couple before your big day; It makes it so much more personal. We always have so much fun adventuring around taking photos of you, laughing and talking and getting to know how you interact with one another and in front of a camera. It’s the best way for us to prepare how to best capture you. Eric and Lisa were so adventurous and up for anything I asked them to do! It was great. And their pups were so adorable – I love the bond between a man and his pet, it’s so special. I understand it even better now since having my own first puppy. It was so sweet, at their wedding while we were walking around in between poses Eric and Lisa and I were gushing over dogs and training and newly married life. I love when clients feel like friends I’ve already known for awhile! And now.. I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves because well.. they’re amazing and some of my favorite to date.

xoxo, Meagan

Horn and DeLorenzo Family- Lifestyle Session

I’m so excited to share a family session from this past fall, as it’s my own brother and sister-in-law to be! TJ and Lauren asked me to take their picures along with Lauren’s family and this shoot was a nonstop hour of energy! Both couples were gorgeous subjects and how ADORABLE are all their children? Bristol, Asher, and Seth are seriously the cutest bunch of cousins on the planet. This was the perfect and crisp fall evening and I am super happy to have been able to capture such precious moments for them!

Matt and Ali – July 5th, 2014

2015-03-25

I was looking forward to photographing Matt and Ali’s wedding day ever since their engagement session. They’re the kind of people I immediately felt a connection with; anyone probably would. They’re kind hearted, warm, fun, adventurous.. the list goes on! I wanted to burst out and say “can we be best friends!?” but thought I better not scare them off ..(play it cool meg, play it cool). Their wedding day was nothing short of beautifully and amazingly awesome. Is that too many adjectives?

This country-chic wedding took place in the woods (yyyyyesss) at Rocky Top Lodge – hands down one of my favorite venues to date. The rustic camp-cabinesque vibe and sun soaked woods made for some beyond dreamy images. Creamy colors mixed with bold navy blue and lavender purple hit the spot. Ali poured her heart and soul into their big day and all of it’s details. It was so evident in how relaxed the entire day felt as well as how wonderful everything came together. This couple loves one another and they love their family. It was so neat to witness them honoring Christ, family and each other in special moments of the day. One of my favorites was when Matt came down from the arbor to walk Ali up the stairs, and he took a minute to not just hug but embrace each parent. They also had their parents read a letter/blessing during the ceremony which provided many tears, smiles and laughter. Matt was so attentive and eager to see his bride, it was adorable. The anxious/overwhelming sense of love and excitement made this day so memorable. It also (obviously) made me SO excited for my own wedding (which was just a few months later). Ali was so sweet and welcomed me with a “you’re next!!!” hug. I just love these two.

I’m a huge campfire lover so you know I was all about the bonfire they had on the yard after sunset with the sound of laughter and dancing fading into the night. Katherine (my intern at the time) and I had such a great time photographing this special, special day and couldn’t be happier to share it with you all. Whose ready for this summer time sunshine!? Makes me so excited for all of the 2015 weddings coming up.

Kent and Ashleigh

2015-03-11

Kent and Ashleigh have been dear friends of mine for quite some time. We first met through photography because Kent is the mastermind behind Kent Mast Photo and Video. It’s a pretty cool story because I got to witness Kent and Ashleigh when they were first hanging out and Kent began to pursue Ashleigh with his whole heart to make her his girlfriend. Then they got engaged in South Carolina and I got to photograph it – so awesome. They celebrated a year of marriage and now.. a baby is on the way! And of COURSE I had them video my very own wedding day! There’s no one better in the business. If you have yet to hire a videographer let me tell you 1. You MUST. It captures your day in a way photos cannot, we highly recommend it, and 2. KMPV is the best you will ever find. So, so worth it. We always love when we get to work weddings together and often refer to ourselves as “the dream team”.

I had such a blast adventuring around  in the woods around my new home for these photos! During our session the perfect warm, summer time rain storm passed through and we took total advantage of it. These are hands down some of my favorite images ever. It doesn’t hurt that I’m pretty fond of the folks in them. They’re such sweet souls and I am so excited to watch them become parents! Thank you so much Kent and Ashleigh for your support over the years, business talks, spiritual talks, adventures and friendship. Looking back at these photographs I can’t help but smile at your pure, true love for one another!

Dandon and Morgan – May 31st, 2014

Where do I even begin with this beautiful couple. I first met Morgan a few years back at The Fire And Ice Festival hosted in my quaint town Lititz! Morgan was working at the Rachels Crepes food truck and when I went up to give my order I was mesmerized by her gorgeous ring and sweet tattoos. I just had this feeling that I needed to give her a business card. At the time, I wasn’t very bold in self advertising and for the first time ever, I gathered up all of the nerves inside of me to ask if she’d found a wedding photographer yet. When she told me she hadn’t it took everything in me not to break out in a crazy happy dance of sheer excitement. I gave her my card and low and behold – she hired me! Last Summer she also had my work featured in at Rachel’s Crepes cafe which was so cool. If you have not tried Rachels Crepes before, you don’t even know what life is.

Dandon and Morgan are two of the sweetest, funniest, hippest people I know. It felt like I was at a friends wedding the entire day! That’s the best feeling as a photographer. Being an avid Lancaster City hopper it was so fun seeing so many familiar faces! I didn’t know anyone personally but I recognized SO MANY FACES. All those cool people you see working at the cafe’s, clubs, thrift shops, food trucks, boutiques.. you name them, they were all there. Morgan did such a fabulous job at thrifting all of her decor! Cups, plates, table cloths, her dress! Everything was decked out to perfection and whatever wasn’t thrifted was DIY. It was the perfect spring blend of colors and florals. OH man, those florals. I was on serious detail overload. I still to this day, wish I could go back and have five hours for the detail shots alone. Stefani Burket did an amazing job on Morgans hair and makeup. I love the unique bohemian meets vintage glamor that Morgan and Stefani accomplished. And that head piece? Drooling. Family was so important to these two which is why one of my favorite moments was during the ceremony when Morgans brother walked her down the aisle in his Navy Blues. Such a sweet moment. Another “sweet” moment was the dessert table (see what I did there?). It was decked out in heavenly tasting Lancaster Cupcake yummies. My mouth literally melted. Also, can I just say how freaking awesome of an idea it was to have two of their favorite, local food trucks at the reception for the food/meal and snacks all night!? Souvlaki Boys and Baron Von Schwein. That was a first for me and I am a total fan. Both were so delicious but I am forever obsessed with Baron Von Schwein now and if you haven’t experienced their goodness yet you need to get on that. Lauxmont Farms was as dreamy as ever with it’s rolling hills, horses, cobblestone courtyard and the warm, soft, pink-hued sunset that fell over all of the fields. Glory!

Julia and I had the best day ever photographing this wedding and we are so, so, so excited to share it with you! What is your favorite detail about this wedding?

Justin and Alyssa – May 16th, 2015

2015-03-09

It’s finally time to share all of the beautiful weddings I shot in 2014 with you! I’ve known Justin and Alyssa for years since we all went to high school together. If you haven’t seen their sunny engagement session you should check it out here. This wedding was so fun. Alyssa looked beautiful in her off white, lace-tule dress. It was the perfectly pink and gold detailed day and the dance party at the end was on point. Lauxmont Farms Cobblestone Courtyard is one of my favorite locations (luckily I got to photograph there a few times in 2014)!

This was one of my first wedding’s of the year! Crazy. It’s always so fun to look back and see how different my editing style and eye has grown in one year. I’m still so excited about these images and can’t wait to see what you all think.
