Gabby and Sean were such a joy to photograph because of their love for life, each other, and FUN. These two definitely know how to have a good time. In our short time together, we joked, laughed, and found a way to make a cold, windy afternoon an all-around blast. We spent the morning diving into their love story and finding ways to capture the pure and beautiful love they have for each other on camera. I am so looking forward to their September wedding and getting to photograph their love and joy all over again!
I couldn’t be more excited to share Justin and Karlee’s wedding day with you all. First off, I’ve known Karlee ever since 8th grade and we’ve been best buds ever since. That’s about 9+ years of friendship! The minute I met Justin I knew he was the one for Karlee. They compliment one another so well and balance each other out perfectly. My husband Caleb instantly connected with Justin and now we’re just the happiest group of friends that ever met. It’s great.
I shot this wedding two days after getting home from my honeymoon, so a blissful-love-high was in full swing. Justin and Karlee had such dreamy weather. Can we just take in that sunset!?t Their venue Harvest View Barn couldn’t have been better suited with all of it’s wide open fields and luxurious hills. And Talia, the little photogenic flower girl. I can’t even. One of the neatest touches to their cocktail hour was something I’ve never seen before.. an iced coffee bar! Seriously so perfect and so yummy. Both Justin and Karlee were so excited and full of love which made the entire day so fun and special. HUGE shout out to my girl Maddie Broderick who was my second shooter for this day. There’s a handful of her images featured below! She always steps up and shoots along side of me so well. Well, I can’t even rave about this day enough. I’m literally swooning over these images for days. Join me!
I’ve known Dan and Kara for quite some time now. I shot there engagement photos back in 2013 and now had the pleasure of shooting their one year anniversary session this past Fall! Dan was my husbands best man in our September 2014 wedding, and Kara has been one of my closest girlfriends for the last year. It’s been so much fun growing together in the newly married stages of life, venting and laughing through all of the different experiences married life brings. Dan and Kara were also with us at the race that my husband Caleb recently broke both of his knees in. They’ve continually been supportive, kind, fun friends and we are so thankful for them in our lives! Something so special to me about this session was knowing Dan and Kara’s hearts, struggles, and joys then getting to capture their love at this special stage in life. To me, nothing beats walking through life with people in sincere friendship and then getting to capture them in photographs.
I also think the way Dan still looks at Kara in some of these images like he’s smitten is the cutest thing ever, and Kara’s unstoppable grin in reaction to her man is just plain adorable.
Photographing two beautiful people in love is one thing, but photographing two beautiful people in love who have a passion for creativity and art is a whole new level of awesome. Kirk and Courtney have quickly become two good friends of mine ever since we first met when they hired me two years ago to photograph their engagement session in the Summer of 2013, and their wedding later in September 2013. Courtney later started doing some part time editing for MNP and our bond quickly grew from “hey, you’re cool” to “hey, let’s be friends”. Kirk also happens to be a super talented graphic designer and I was lucky enough to have him design/print some stationary for my wedding this past September! Part of my payment to him was a creative-swap which included a styled shoot. I was so blessed by their generosity and creativity. Kirk, Courtney and I met up at Mount Gretna this past Fall and walked around the Jigger shop and all the cute little summer homes there. We had so much fun talking and laughing about our newlywed experiences as we walked around and found some fun photo ops. I had such a great time with these two and am so excited to be sharing these photos with y’all!
