The Barn at Frosty Valley // Leann + Jordan

Jordan + Leann had the most perfect day at The Barn at Frosty Valley. I had some awesome lighting to play with and an even more awesome couple to spend the day with! Their love story actually started in high school where they became fast friends. They made it official and spent a majority of their relationship long distance. Well, after all that time, they finally got their happily ever after and celebrated big!

The outdoor ceremony was so sweet and the party inside the barn with 100 of their closest friends was super fun. But my favorite part? Definitely the lantern send off! Talk about love lighting up the sky. It was such a touching way to end the day. Congratulations again, Jordan + Leann!

Brookmere Winery & Vineyard // Emily + Brent

Emily and Brent had a beautiful outdoor wedding at Brookmere Winery and Vineyard Inn. The two found each other when they were least expecting love. They met while still in high school at a beef cattle show. In nine years together, they have accomplished so much. From living in 7 cities to achieving four academic degrees, you could say that they have been pretty busy! 

Their wedding day was nothing short of amazing. Emily wore a gorgeous sweetheart style dress while Brent was dressed in a light grey tux. During the first look, you could see how happy the two were and I knew from that moment that the whole day would be full of so much love. From the floral bouquets to the rustic style decor, everything came together beautifully. I am so glad I got to be a part of their special day! 

New Year, New Adventures // Website Launch

There is a few exciting things happening over here at ABP! Not one but two new adventures. One of them being this pretty new site your reading and browsing through. 

For the past few weeks, I have been working with Brand Society (all the way over in Italy!) to make this dream come true. It’s been two years since I last updated my website, WHAT?! I know, I know but I am so thrilled to show it off and to see how I’ve grown, not only artistically but as a business. Stepping into this new year feeling ready to conquer everything that comes towards me was definitely the way I wanted to start the year. 

Not only is this new website launch something i’ve been working on but organizing my clients is another 2018 goal of mine. So from now on, I will have a calendar system for all of my future clients. This is not only going to be huge for me but for you as well! You can book up to 3 months in advance (weddings exclude from this obviously) and get text reminders about your session. No more over worked, over booked photographer over here!

FINALLY - as I’m sure you can see from the images, my office is *finished*. It has been a huge labor of love. From all sides. A huge shoutout goes to my husband, father in law and my dad! I couldn’t have gotten this far without your help. I am so ECSTATIC to finally have a dedicated space for work and my clients. I have a ton of client meetings and reveal sessions and they finally have a home. YAY! 

Now - go enter into the launch contest for a chance to win a session!

NYE Wedding // Central Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer// Melinda and Jay

Hello, long time no see friends! I've got another beautifully classic wedding *night* for you. Melinda and Jay's venue at the Williamsport Holiday Inn suited their style so well. 

Their wedding day was truly breathtaking and special. I met Melinda and Jay for the first time on their wedding day and they were such an inviting couple, ut makes me so happy to make instant friends! The uplighting provided by Kevin Head Entertainment truly helped set the mood for this occasion. All of the decor flowed so well to create the overall theme, romantic and timeless. 

The bride and grooms attire were both purchased at Tanya's. All the bride and bridesmaids hair and makeup were done by Danielle Barr + Beauty and the Blush. They looked flawless! Melinda couldn't stop raving at how amazing they all were to work with. 

We had a lot of fun taking wedding pictures, as well. They decided to not see each other until Melinda was walking down the aisle. The emotion I captured in Jay, was truly priceless! (make sure to see below)

It was such a pleasure getting to photograph them for their big day so let's get to the pictures! Mr. and Mrs. Rice were such a delight to work with and I wish them many wonderful years to come.
