A Colorful Fall Wedding | Selinsgrove, PA

  • Taylor + Amanda

This past weekend Michael and I drove up to Selinsgrove, PA for Taylor and Amanda’s wedding! Last time we saw them, we were almost run over by wild horses on Assateague island during their engagement shoot!! We had so much fun with them this summer that we had high expectations for their wedding! We knew it was going to be a blast and we weren’t disappointed! Michael and I pulled through the adorable little town and quickly arrived at the Stone Barn. What a cute venue!! This property is full of awesome old barns and it’s settled beside a creak. The ceremony was tucked under the trees beside the water and it was such a peaceful location for a wedding! The portrait locations were limitless! I was in heaven!! Old barns, tall grass, beautiful trees, ivy covered walls…. I could go on and on!

A Carter's Mountain Orchard Engagement Shoot

  • Mike + Lauren | Engaged

at CNU because we sang on Worship Team together for Intervarsity! Gosh that seems like another world! We’ve been out in the real world for quite some time and it’s hard to believe that it has been almost 5 years since that season of our life!! Lauren was always the loyal, dependable member of worship team that was always on time!! I remember having conversations about her wedding way back then. At the time, I had just started my business! I wasn’t even that GOOD yet and still Lauren insisted that one day, I would photograph her wedding! Well, that time has come!!!

Happy Anniversary Michael!

  • Four Years!

this time four years ago I was getting my hair and makeup done…. only to have my fake eyelashes fall off a few hours later. :) I stressed about so much about my wedding and when the day finally arrived… I could have cared less! I look at our images and I don’t remember ever touching up my makeup (I probably should have!). We rode in a convertible from the ceremony to the reception and my hair was A MESS! …. But I didn’t fix it. I was having the time of my life! Those minor details didn’t phase me. I’m so thankful that despite the stressful planning process, our wedding was an absolute DREAM…
