Welcome to the world Taelyn!

A few weeks ago, I got a call from Amber, one of my past brides, letting me know she was expecting very soon. Once the baby was born, she wanted to do a Baby’s First Year package. On Easter day, Taelyn made her way into the world! Today, I went over to photograph her for the first time. Amber is a girl after my own heart! She had Taelyn’s nursery done in hot pink and black with ZEBRA print accents. Amber’s mother made all the bedding, lamps and every thing in between. Since Taelyn was born on Easter, Amber thought it would be cute to have her in an Easter basket with bunny ears. Taelyn loved it!! Too cute!
So here is a few of Miss Taelyn!

Janelle and Angelo…married Lancaster Country Club

I have never seen two people more in love with each other than Janelle and Angelo. They will tell the story of how they met at his families restaurant over and over. It seems as though Janelle was destined to walk in that day and see Angelo working. Sparks flew immediately and the rest is history.
Sunday was a testament to their bond. Smiles, laughs and tears were shared by everyone all day.
I was so connected to Janelle from the day we met. She would call me to share every planning detail and to get my opinion on everything. She is a girl after my own heart!
My friend Erik came to shoot with me Sunday. He had a chance to meet Janelle at our Photog shoot out last month where Janelle was one of the models. So this made it seem like we were all just a bunch of friends hanging out for the day.
The ceremony was held at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox church in Lancaster. I love Greek ceremonies because you are allowed to stand right up in the action. Janelle was like a big bundle of energy waiting for the pronouncement that her and Angelo were finally married. She even did a little dance right at the end!
After shooting some formals of everyone, we headed to Lancaster Country Club for the reception. Janelle wanted us to photograph the ballroom before anyone was allowed in. She put in so much thought to the details, from the zebra print table runners, ostrich feather center pieces to the hockey puck place cards(for Angelo) and the Bowl of baked oatmeal cake. Yes, it was crazy and different, but they wanted something to symbolize the first date they had over a bowl of baked oatmeal!
After dinner and some traditional greek dances, they had a limbo and hoola hoop contest in honor of Janelle’s college friends.
We had such a blast!! Thank you for letting us be part of your day!! Enjoy your show!

Lauren and Rob..married at Historic Strasburg Inn

Lauren and Rob were married on the most gorgeous day we have had in a long time! The temperature was perfect! Everything was on Sunday!
Liesa and I met Lauren and the girls in the newly build suites of Eden Resort. Outside the room was parked a red scooter…we were so confused. Lauren then told us it was her wedding present to Rob. So Liesa went off with the guys to capture Rob’s reaction to his gift. Meanwhile the girls finished up before we all headed to Strasburg for the ceremony. Jonnaysa and Diana of Planned Perfection were already there putting the finishing touches on everything. We grabbed a few shots of the guys and girls separately before the ceremony since we had a little extra time. After the ceremony and family formals, we took Lauren and Rob around the grounds of the Inn for some quiet time alone. Lauren was absolutely stunning!! Rob is a lucky man!!
We arrived just a little before the reception started to get settled. Then the reception was in full swing! What a perfect day! We were so lucky to be able to work with some of our favorite vendors. Enjoy your honeymoon and show!
