I traveled to a new location for this session and it did not disappoint! I met Alana + Steve at Rodale Institute, along with their adorable dog, Iomi. We got the most perfect light and Alana + Steve were such naturals in front of the camera! Spending time with them made me 100x more excited for their wedding because I know the images are going to be amazing!!!
Welp. This session went of without a hitch. Minus the 40 people that we also at King and Queen's seat on Sunday! Jenn + Don got a few whistles and hollers from the crowd and it was hilarious. Actually, it was just one punk kid and it was kind of annoying!!! Everyone else was very, "oh that's so cute!".. I think one gal even snapped a photo on her phone!
We hung out, snapping photos at the park for about an hour or so. It wasn't till we were on our way home when we passed this GORGEOUS field that hadn't been plowed yet. It's common for those purple weeds/flowers to grow in fields, but this field was COVERED!! Jenn and I "oooh'd and ahhh'd" as we drove by, and Don, bless his heart said, "I'll turn this car around right now!"
These two are troopers. Not like cop troopers, but up-early-for-a-sunrise-session kind of troopers.
Meet Madea + Alex.
At 7am on Saturday we met at Chickie's Rock for their engagement session. I knew it was going to be a good session before we started. Madea, from day one, has been very "you tell me what to do and we'll do it". I was surprised at how ok she was when I said, "if you want to shoot there in the morning, we have to do a sunrise session because that's when the light will be best." I cannot thank her enough for trusting me! (more…)
Ah, this engagement session!!! When I saw on Facebook that Tanner and Kelsey were engaged, I immediately texted my best friend Harmony and said, "if Kelsey asks me to be her photographer, will you road trip to Vermont with me for their engagement session?!" Kelsey and Harmony are friends and so that's mainly how I know Kelsey!! Harmony said yes, so we loaded up the car at 5:30pm on a Thursday and started our 8 hour journey!
When you photograph a wedding, it's no secret that you hope the bride's awesome bridesmaids call you when it's their turn to walk down the aisle. I first met Meggan almost 3 (?) years ago, she was in a wedding I was photographing. I remember her being bubbly and very helpful throughout the day. Fast forward to just over a year ago, and she pops up in another wedding I was shooting! Again, she was so helpful and kind. And although I didn't get to see any of her awesome dance moves at that wedding, I left happy to see her and hoping she'd call me one day.
Allyssa and I grew up together. We were practically inseparable. We went thru a lot of life's stages together... Middle school, first kisses, high school dances, etc... We dreamed about our weddings together when we were little.
I still remember when she and Cliff started dating. We were freshman in high school and he was the cute boy in her computer class. The rest is pretty much history :) They're wedding day is probably going to be the most meaningful weddings I've shot to date. Allyssa and Cliff, I'm thrilled and beyond honored to be a part of your day! I know you've been waiting for it for SO long <3 (more…)
