Trisha & Shane 6.28.08

Trisha & Shane's day is Finally here!!! If you remember, we did their engagement pictures back in September of last year. We were so excited to see them again, and celebrate their wedding day with them!

Their ceremony was held at St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Manheim. Even though it was a hot day, we got some before shots of Shane and his groomsmen and Trisha and her bridesmaids outside before the wedding started. After the ceremony we headed over to Barny's at Overlook Community Campus in Lancaster.

The theme for the day: High fives! They high-fived each other after their first kiss in the church, at the exit from the church and here, during the first dance.

Thanks for sharing your day with us Trisha & Shane!

Kristin & Mike 6.21.08

Yesterday we took a trip down to St. Mary's City in Maryland. Kristin and Mike met while going to college there so they really wanted their engagement pictures taken in some of their most memorable spots.

We started off down by the beach where they had their first kiss!

After the beach, we went to the Garden Of Rememberance

Just a nice, formal portrait

I love the Sapphire in Kristin's engagement ring!

Check out the blog in April of next year for Kristin & Mike's wedding pictures!

Longwood Gardens 6.15.08

After we did Jen & Chris' engagement shoot my husband Matt and I stayed at Longwood Gardens to get in some flower shots. For those of you who don't know me very well, one of my passions is flower photography. I don't know why. I don't have a green thumb. I don't garden. I don't know all of the names of every flower out there but I just LOVE taking pictures of them, especially close up shots. Well, I couldn't go to Longwood and NOT take some time to enjoy the flowers.

A few weeks ago I bought another camera and Matt instantly became my second shooter. He's really starting to enjoy it (and doing a great job!) and I thought you would like to see some of his work from Longwood (and some of mine of course!)

My pictures:
Thats Matt!
Matt's Pictures:

One of my favorite shots that he took! Love this Water Lilly!
Another Water Lilly
Thats me!

Jen & Chris 6.15.08

We met up with Jen & Chris at Longwood Gardens today for their engagement pictures. It was a hot day but not too bad. We walked around as much of Longwood as we could before we had to go to the Terrace Restaurant for lunch. I think we all had such a great time getting to know each other!

Keep an eye out for pics from Jen & Chris' wedding in November!

Gen & Rick 6.14.08

Ahhh! Gen & Rick's day is finally here! We all prayed for good weather and for the most part we were given it. We started the day at Landis Woods Park for portraits of Rick and his groomsmen first, then Gen and her bridesmaids.

After the portraits we went over to the ceremony and reception site at Landis Valley Museum. The ceremony was beautiful and we started on family portraits right away. Just as we were done with the family portraits we rushed to get some bridal party pics done before the rain came. We finished JUST in time. It started to POUR right as we were finishing up!

Jumping for joy!

Thank you Gen & Rick for letting us share in your special day!
