Lucas + Kayla | Pennsylvania Barn Wedding

The end of summer months are always strange. You never know if it’s going to turn into a beautiful fall or head straight into winter. When Kayla and Luke’s big day came around, it was PERFECT. It was warm with a breeze and a nice overcast so you were getting your eyeballs blasted by the sun. They were surrounded by lots of hugs, love and laughter at the most beautiful venue. Kayla + Lucas are so sweet and laid back, we had the best time celebrating their love. Kayla walked down the aisle barefoot and they immediately toasted to their new journey together after their first kiss. The night rolled on with with best dance moves and a little rain shower.

Congratulations Kayla + Lucas!

Venue: Long Acre Farm
Catering: Gance’s

Dave + Christine | Endwell Greens Wedding

Ya'll it is freaking cold out. There's really nothing good about winter. Everything it wet, salty and cold. Okay maybe I could name a few outdoor activities that are fun but that's about it. While we are all grumbling about on these blustery winter days I thought it would be the perfect time to share some bits from Dave + Christine's wedding. They are super laid back! They have the cutest little kiddos and we all had such a great time throughout their day. 

I lovedddd working with them and can't wait to again in the future. Congratulations guys!

Enjoy

Luke + Niki | Binghamton Fall Wedding

I have to admit, I still freak out a little bit before every single wedding. I've been a photographer for a while now so you would think this wouldn't be the case. Yet there I am every morning before a wedding, packing up my car and having a meltdown in my brain. 

This was 100% the case on Luke + Niki's big day. They had the largest wedding party and it was pretty intimidating especially when it came time to plan poses for their portraits. Ohhhh but let me tell you I freaked myself out for no reason. In general, Luke, Niki and their families are the sweetest little peaches and when it came down to getting things done, their wedding party was ON IT. 

I love weddings. Really. It's not a secret. Everyone is so welcoming, happy and always willing to lend a hand if I need. In this case it was the Maid of Honor + Bridesmate-- thanks again, y'all daaa best! Every wedding is different. The people, the traditions, the music. EVERYTHINGGG all the way down to the tiny details. For example, Niki's mom handmade their bouquets and they were totally gorgeous. Like, yaaass girl.

I had a great time spending the day with this incredible couple and their family. 2016- another season in the books and another year of making new friends to come. 

Congratulations Luke + Niki

Jon + Nikki | State Park Fall Wedding

It's been a hot minute since I've sat down and wrote a blog post. The end of season has come and boy has it hit me HARD! It has been so so so busy and I'm grateful for it. I think this is the first year that I've continuously worked straight through until December when business normally dies down around the first week or two of November. Y'all are braving the cold and killllinnng it at your sessions! MY KIND OF PEOPLE! 

Moving right along then, it's story time.

I met Jon + Nikki through mutual friends.. and then we became friends. I'm not gonna lie. They definitely have that kind of relationship that you instantly get jealous of. They're super outdoorsy, always doing fun stuff and REALLY FREAKING SMART! Like, if cash cab were still a thing, they would totally be my one phone call. (if you don't know what cash cab is, peep it here  and educate ya self real quick because it's amazing).  

Jon + Nikki tied the knot at State Park on a cool fall Saturday in October. It may have rained once the reception started but it was still such a beautiful day! Surrounded by close friends and family, getting down on the dance floor and the BEST cupcakes. Ughhh SO CUTE. 
Here's a few peeks into their big day. 

Congratulations Jon + Nikki!
