This is Where God Goes on Vacation...

... these were the words spoken to me by a guest last weekend at Talley and Jeff's wedding. Looking out on the 150 acre family farm, I had to admit, they had a good point.
This will rank up there as one of my favorite locations ever shot. The farm, located north of Lockhaven on the Susquehanna River, included the rustic barn backdrop for the ceremony, a one room school house, train tracks, and gorgeous summer fields - and if there were only more hours in the day there was so much more to explore!
Talley and Jeff's laid back attitude made them easy to work with and the whole wedding so relaxed and fun. The details were gorgeous, and the dessert buffet... I would tell you about it, but the drool puddling over the keyboard is making it difficult to type.

Enjoy the teasers!

Diamonds and Lace...

Everyone says that rain on your wedding day is good luck, but I think you are truly blessed when every single weather report forecasts torrential thunderstorms and the sun shines through. Jessica and Michael were married on Saturday at Toftrees Resort and aside from being hot, the day was gorgeous. The facilities at Toftrees are beautiful, but add to them the genius of Daniel Vaughn and the final effect is stunning.
Being that they chose my largest package, I had the joy of spending the day with my second shooter - April. I think she and the boys may have had too much fun! April is not only my right hand and half of my brain, but having her at a wedding ensures that not a single detail or angle gets missed.
Jessica and Michael are one of those couples that feel like instant friends, and their families are no different - Thank you so much for welcoming us in with open arms. I can't wait to keep documenting the stages of their journey!

Enjoy the teasers... there are so many more that I love!

Blue Eyed Girl...

Charlotte and I have been taking pictures together since she was born... and being that it has been a whole 10 weeks, I'd say she's pretty much a pro.
I had the joy of being able to accompany Charlotte and those pesky parental units to Talleyrand Park this past week. She thought the ducks, sky, trees, grass, and so forth were much more interesting than mom or dad. By the end though, we tuckered her out - and I can only image the dreams that followed.

I have been blessed to be a part of your lives.

Jessica & Shawn

Jessica and Shawn love to travel -they actually met at PSU while telling students about the amazing study abroad program in Australia. So they are taking their wedding on the road and having a tropical destination wedding (I wish I could be at that!) Having met at Penn State, they found it only appropriate to come back for their engagement session. We had such a fun time laughing and playing with their two adorable dogs.

Good luck with all the wedding prep!
