A Romantic, Autumn, York Pennsylvania Wedding | Kelly + Casey

This past Saturday was such a blast! Kelly and Casey gave me the honor of capturing their amazing, family-centered wedding day and I had the best time working with these two! Our morning started at a family friend’s private home which, thanks to their hospitality, gave us such a beautiful background for Kelly and Casey’s portraits.

It was a very relaxed, laid back day filled with an abundance of laughter and one precious pup… Lady. You’ll see Kelly and Casey’s sweet dog made a few appearances including hanging around for their first look. My heart melted over and over again each time Lady tried to jump up to give her mama a kiss. Can we all agree that dogs and weddings are the perfect match!?

This was a BIG wedding. More than 210 people joined them for their special day and what do a couple hundred people need during a wedding day…? The perfect band to dance to! Central City Orchestra brought down the house with live music during their reception and I’m pretty sure all of Kelly and Casey’s friends and family were having the times of their lives.

These two newlyweds have recently taken trips, bought a home together and now get to settle into their new lives as Mr. and Mrs. - the sweetest ending to the best day and the best beginning to the sweetest marriage. Congratulations, Kelly and Casey!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their York, PA wedding day!

The Booking House Romantic Glam Winter Wedding | Andrea + Jody

The-Booking-House-Wedding_0003.jpg

I have been looking forward to this day since Andrea first reached out to me about shooting her wedding day! I have known Andrea since high school and she is honestly one of the coolest people I know. When I got to meet Jody, I knew their wedding was going to be the perfect representation of their combined coolness. No, I’m not struggling for words here. They’re just that awesome. From their down-to-earth but ready to party bridesmaids and groomsmen to Andrea’s badass leather jacket… this wedding was all kinds of YES.

They chose an amazing vendor team that I am so, so honored to be a part of. Every single aspect of their day was beautifully executed by a team so dedicated to giving A&J a dream wedding. It was also such a blessing to have two of my former brides in attendance as guests plus Andrea’s sister, Theresa, has been in two SSP wedding parties! For photographers, that’s what dreams are made of.

But the real MVPs of the day are the bride, groom and the wedding party because they braved frigid temperatures and freezing rain for some of their images.

I knew it was important to get Andrea and Jody outside into some winter natural light despite the overcast skies. I wanted their images to have diversity in their lighting and also… let’s face it… there’s nothing that can compete with gorgeous natural sunlight. They trusted me to take them outside for some portraits and their first look in the freezing rain and IT WAS WORTH EVERY SECOND.

Enjoy some of my favorite shots from Andrea and Jody’s romantic and glamorous winter wedding at The Booking House!
