Leigh and Schuyler are getting married in NJ next year but for the engagement session, we went back to my hometown in the Lehigh Valley for their engagement shoot at Lehigh University. In spite of being from Emmaus, they showed me some new parts of Lehigh in Bethlehem that I didn't know existed. It was a pleasure spending a beautiful Fall morning with them. Thanks to Leigh and Schuyler for getting up so early and risking missing the start of Sunday's football game :)
The Castle at Skylands Manor set the scene for Katie and Michael's wedding in September. The bridal party had 20+ people and kept us on our toes all day. It was fun working with such a big group and everyone was so nice and surprisingly willing to shoot formals for awhile!
It was also a pleasure to see two of my former brides at Katie's wedding. It's always fun working with a group of friends and I'm happy to have another friend of theirs coming up next year!
One last thing that made their day special: not only did Katie get married on her wedding day but she also celebrated her birthday! Michael surprised her with roses and balloons :)
In the midst of the busy west village, the Apple store is littered with post-it notes containing messages to Steve Jobs. Standing in front of it and taking it all in was both touching and overwhelming.
Gina and Todd were married last month at The Manor House at Prophecy Creek. It is a new venue in Ambler, Pennsylvania and they have done a beautiful job decorating and restoring the house. The bridal suite is just gorgeous and I loved the light in the whole house. In addition to the beautiful interiors, there were so many beautiful locations to shoot outside with a variety of backdrops. I loved the barn, the fields, the stone and brick structures and especially the fields that feel a little unkempt. The weather was perfect and it was wonderful to witness Gina and Todd's genuine relationship and love for one another.
This was one of my favorites. Everything was perfect from the setting to the light to the weather. The wedding took place at the Bourne Mansion in Oakdale, NY and although the forecast was anticipating rain in the week leading up to the wedding, the day was bright and beautiful. I loved the rich purple Joanie chose for the bridesmaids and she looked exceptional in her gown. It was a thrill to photograph this wedding and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with another wonderful couple.
