Tom + Emily | September 5th, 2015 | Hadleman Mansion Wedding

2016-05-24

Tom and Emily are two of the sweetest people. The entire day they were smiling ear to ear, making one another laugh with their little inside jokes. It was such a fun relationship to witness become one, and to photograph! The minute that I met Emily on her wedding day I knew I was instantly going to be drooling all day. The dresses, the veil, the florals, makeup, colors, lighting, location.. AH! It was a dream. Anyone who knows me knows I looove playing with makeup, so all of the perfection happening on Emily’s face had me so excited. That lipstick! I loved how it totally matched all of the girls robes and the invitation suite.

The entire day was so laid back and fun. It was a smaller wedding, with a backyard type feel. Tom and Emily had their little Boston terrier named Barney in the ceremony which was just adorable! Both Tom and Emily really wanted a budget friendly wedding with a unique feel so they chose to have friends form a bit of a live band which wound up being so perfect with the soft, acoustic tunes playing throughout the reception. The evening ended with yard games and lots of laughter between family and friends in the warm, setting sun.

As if their wedding wasn’t already amazing, having my second shooter Maddie Broderick along for the day put the cherry on top!

Enjoy a few of my faaaavorites from this intimate, beautiful wedding day!

Danielle- Styled Shoot

2016-05-17

Let us just begin by saying that if you don’t know Danielle, you need to know Danielle. A few months back, we started dreaming up a whimsical shoot along the Susquehanna and were pumped to have Danielle on board. With our vision in mind and our cameras in tow, we made the journey to our photo destination and had a ball. Let us also tell you that this little lady is a genius in front of a camera. We’re talking like beyond genius actually. She even face-plants it gracefully. We know this because it’s probable we witnessed this. Sorry, Danielle, we love you. We finished our shoot with a muted golden hour and candle goodness, hellllllooooo (insert praise hands.) Danielle also agreed to go in the water which was colder than we don’t even know what because it was just that cold. We were so thankful for our night together and can’t wait to share our images with you!

Behold!

Tori and Julia

Matt + Ariel | September Wedding | Manhiem, PA

I’m not even sure where to start with this magical day! I’ve known Ari for quite awhile through our old church, and then later in life through mutual friends. We’d bumped into one another now and then over the years and I always hoped she’d hire me as her wedding photographer one day. HEYO! How lucky am I, because she did! Matt + Ari remind me so much of my husband and I. He loves hunting and she loves makeup. Matt and Ari are so easy to talk to and laugh with. They’re just the neatest, down to earth couple … and together, they shine. They’re undeniably perfect for one another!

This wedding day had so many neat facets to it. One of my favorites being that my parents were the officiants + married this amazing couple! It was so much fun being a part of the ceremony they helped plan and orchestrate. I may be biased, but I just love them! So let’s talk about Ari’s dress! That dress deserves all the heart eyes man. It had a short sleeved, lace over lay and underneath was a strappy, babydoll look. LOVE. A super cute touch to the day were the bridesmaid dresses! Ari works for her sister’s boutique in Downtown Lancaster called “Coleson Fine Clothiers” on Queen Street, which is where they got these one of a kind, super unique and fun bridesmaid dresses made by Trina Turk. Another really fun detail was the ceremony decor. Ari had the aisle lined with white paper windmills! The entire ceremony was held on her families white farm house which was beyond beautiful. One of my favorite florist’s to work with, Lori from Wild Flowers By Design created all of the florals and decorated the property perfectly. I can’t get over the hanging frame at the ceremony and all of the dreamy tablescapes she crafted at the reception, which was held at one of my favorite venues – The Booking House. My friend Taylor Courtney of Bring On The Bash was the DJ which was super fun! Everyone pretty much danced their faces off and it was awesome. There were just so many things that made this day so special. It had rained off and on all day, finally ending in a torrential downpour RIGHT after their ceremony ended just in the nic of time for us to tuck away, but that didn’t stop these two from radiating happiness and love.

I am so excited to finally share this beautiful wedding day with you all!

Amber | Senior Portraits | Style By Rae | Speedwell Forge, PA

2016-05-16

I absolutely love the fact that Amber selected our newest option for senior portraits – custom stylizing by Kelsey Courtney “Style By Rae“! Kelsey helped Amber style her entire session: the outfits, the florals and the props! Kelsey thrifted this amazing wooden chair and crafted a floral garland along the back. Kelsey also created a floral crown for Amber to wear, and ended the session with a beautiful mason jar scene (loads of mason jars filled with lit candles, hanging off of branches along the lake). It was such a dreamy evening! Kelsey nailed it on every angle, and Amber was such a joy to photograph!

Are you an upcoming senior!? Contact me asap to set something up + chat about all of the options we offer! :)

Alan + Dani | Engagement Session | Middlecreek, PA

When Alan and Dani contacted me to be their wedding photographer, I think it’s pretty safe to say I was grinning from ear to ear. And ever since I have been thoroughly excited and anxiously awaiting their magical wedding day! It’s fiiiinally, so close! These two are tying the knot on July 2nd and I am counting down the days! I just can’t get over how adorable they are together! The happiness their loves brings them is so infectious! I genuinely look forward to all of their cute posts about one another on my news feed, ha!

Alan and Dani are the truest definition of best friends and soul mates. I can’t wait to be a part of their much anticipated wedding day!

xoxo,

Meagan

Derek and Amanda – Summer Wedding, Delaware PA

2016-05-13

I am so excited to share a few of my favorites from Derek and Amanda’s wedding! These two were just the kindest, funnest couple. They immediately made me feel like a family member and by the end of the night, Julia and I may or may not have joined Amanda in the glow stick dance party, ha!! This church was beautiful! I couldn’t get enough of the high ceilings, white interior, murals and stained glass windows. Also, can we take a moment to swoon over Amanda’s veil!? YAAAS.

I just love having clients who quickly become friends, whom I will always cherish and remember.

Enjoy!

Daniel and Gillian – Summer Engagement Session

2016-05-10

I will remember this evening forever. It was a super warm Summer day, so I had my AC blasting on my way to this session. When I got out of my car and grabbed my camera, it was like I hit a wall of steam and my camera lens immediately fogged up! I was a little worried because it would not go away. That had never happened to me before, but luckily after a ten minutes out in the warm sun, my camera adjusted to the temperature. All of that to say, I shot a few of these first images through a fogged up lens, which at the time I was freaking out about, but now I am so thankful for it because something about the slight left over fog on my lens mixed with the GORGEOUS sunset that evening made these images some of my favorites to date. They are just so dreamy!

I cannot wait to photograph Daniel + Gillian’s wedding this June! They are just the sweetest pair, and have full adoration for one another. The soft laughter they shared secretly between them was adorable. :)

Enjoy some of my favorites!

Aaron and Kristen – August 8th, 2015 – Country Club Wedding

Aaron and Kristen are such kind, happy people! And it was undeniable that they are full heartedly, hopelessly in love with one another. They are the kind of people that chase adventure, and live life to the fullest hand in hand, smiling ear to ear. Photographing their wedding day was nothing short of that! Their families and friends were all so full of joy which made the whole day feel so sentimental and amazing.

Katie Schmitt Photography was my second shooter for this day and I couldn’t be more happy with the images that she got! It was so much fun getting creative together and bouncing ideas off of one another. Katie – you’re awesome.

love + highfives,

Meagan

I’ve had the absolute joy of photographing the Sitch family many times, but this was the first time the newest member of the family Payton got to join in the fun!

The sun was setting in all the right ways and I just couldn’t help but share a few of my favorites!

HIGHFIVES,
