The second half of my Saturday was spent with Barbara Ann and Michael. They met us at the Art Museum in Philly. What a perfect spot for these two since it was exactly one year that the got engaged at the Art Museum. What a cute story! Michael took Barbara Ann there for a date and he had secretly had roses and a cute table set up in the Crusades exibit. She couldn’t figure out why he was so adamant about getting her to come back in the room. It was the perfect quiet spot to “Pop” the question.
So we did some great shots inside! Outside was almost like a circus trying to avoid at least 6 wedding parties having their photos done as well. It must be the hot spot in Philly!
These are my girls! Not really, but since I don’t have girls, these are the closet I can get! My friends, Val and Karen came to me to get the girls pictures done since it has been long over due!
Who knew that my new studio furniture would make such a cute prop!!GracieJocelynAverie
Saturday, Katie and I had the joy of photographing Lindsay and Ryan’s wedding. They got married at Jerusalem Luthran Church in Rothsville. It was under construction in certain parts, but we found some interesting spots for photo ops. We made the most of our time since the limo was late picking them up to our second destination for formals, since it broke down…. We didn’t have much daylight left, so we all jumped in 3 cars and headed out. So, instead of an hour or so for formals that Lindsay had wanted, we had 10 minutes. We got them done just in time. Then we were off to the Revere Tavern for the reception. I love doing receptions there because the food is awesome!!
Ok, so I should explain the penguins…I have never seen anything like this before. When we got to the church we saw this big box of penguins. They felt like stress relievers. Katie and I were like little kids playing with these things. So as you can see we had some fun….Then we were informed that Lindsay and Ryan love penguins, but these weren’t the right ones they ordered. So the company sent them the right ones and they used them at the reception. How cute are they!!! I hope you guys have a great “fly by night” honeymoon!
Here is your show!
Yesterday, I headed up to New York with the Wiebner’s, Lori Stringer and Kingston to Photo Expo Plus. It is a great Trade show where there are tons of new products and “toys”. I love going to these things so I find new things that you will love! Plus, it is a great road trip and you always learn something new about people on road trips!!
Most of us didn’t bring our huge cameras to avoid carrying them all day, but I feel like I missed out. So I tried with my dinky point and shoot! Hopefully I will have more to post once Kingston gets them to us…He is the only one who brought his!!Oh my gosh we look like tourists!!
Dock at Hoboken.
What a spectacular view!
Friday, Liesa and I headed to First United Methodist Church in Mechanicsburg for Hannah and Jon’s wedding. Then off to Liberty Forge for the reception. The weather wasn’t looking to good for us, so, we made the most of it! I have never seen a bride who didn’t care that it was raining! Everyone was a good sport when we doing pictures in the freezing rain!! So worth it!
I hope you guys get to see these before your Honeymoon!
Hereis your show!
Thanks Beth for your arm!
Because it was raining Friday night, Nikki called and said let’s just do the family in the studio….Well, on Saturday morning, 30 minutes before they left to come here, the sun came out. I called them right away and said “Meet me at Speedwell, we’ll chance it!”
I am so glad we did! We finished just in time before the crazy wind started. Here are a few of my favoites!
Sunday, I headed to Lancaster to meet Daphne and Richard for their engagement shoot. We met at their church and walked around the city a bit. I love doing engagement sessions like this because it gives me a chance to hang out and get to know my couples before I am with them all day on their wedding.
Here are a few of my favorites!
Yesterday, Melanie and Nathan were married at the Lititz Springs Park. I was a little scared b/c the weather has been a little unpredictable the past few days. But it was perfect! Well, to those of us with coats on…Melanie’s Mom was almost in convulsions, she was shivering so bad!
After the wedding, we headed to the General Sutter for one of the most enjoyable receptions! This party was happening! I think Katie(my assistant) found herself a few new boyfriend’s!
What a great time guys!! Thanks!! Even the wedding crashers didn’t spoil a thing!!
I caught this just as he was ready to make his move on Katie!
This guy was hysterical!
Holy cow it was windy today!! I met Maggie and Andy in Lancaster for their engagement session. I wasn’t sure with the rain earlier today, that we would be able to do this. But it cleared up and dropped about 20 degrees with gusting winds!! They stuck it out though!!
I wanted to get these up tonight for them since this weekend is crazy!
Enjoy guys!! Talk to you soon!!
I have been photographing Brennan since he was 2 weeks old. It is amazing to watch him grow! It is always a few months between each shoot, so I couldn’t believe how big he is!!
What a sweetheart!
Thanks Ken and Cindy, for allowing me to be a part of your lives!
