Barn Appétit // Carynn + Travis

The Antolik’s August wedding was the rose gold and cranberry event of my dreams! Carynn and Travis are the sweetest couple ever. They have the biggest hearts for each other and their families. Two became one at Barn Appétit in Milton, Pennsylvania and the whole day was gushing with love. Before the ceremony, the couple wrote love letters to each other, then during the ceremony, sealed them forever. Yeah, don’t even try choking back your tears!

I loved that the ceremony was modern with a dash of traditional just like them! Oh, and you know I love a good sparkler send off. Definitely scroll down and get a look at that gorgeousness! Sending lots of love to Antolik’s… congratulations, again!

Barn Appetit // Mackenzie + Tael

I first met Mackenzie + Tael at their engagement session. They are two sweet, kind people who are adorably in love. I love hearing high school sweetheart stories, and how two eventually became one. Between glances in the halls and helping with homework in science class, Mackenzie  + Tael, started a friendship which eventually blossomed into a long lasting relationship. Que, the wedding day! 

Mackenzie was absolutely glowing all day and I remember her saying, "it's just how I imagined it!". The whole day was perfect from start to finish. The details, the weather, the venue and everything went so well together to mold this wedding. Tael's father officiated the wedding which made the day even more special. One of my other favorite details was Mackenzie's grandmother made them her famous strawberry pie for a personal sweet treat on their sweetheart table. 

Mackenzie, Tael and all their family + friends danced the night away - seriously some of the best dancing I've had all year! We also ended with a beautiful sparkler exit with about 30 close family members + the bridal party. I love this last exit to a fabulous day. 

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Agudelo!
 

Austin + Leanda // Rainy wedding day with a side of sunshine

I can't praise Leanda + Austin enough for being absolute troopers throughout their day. It wasn't scheduled to rain until after their ceremony but we all know how Mother Nature likes to play tricks on us. It started spitting rain within 5 minutes of walking down the aisle. If you ask me, it made for one heck of a story + images that you'll never forget! 

Not only did they stick out the rain throughout the ceremony, they were even willing to get wet for portraits. We never really know when the rain will stop on a wedding day, it may or it may not. So I like to get them done as soon as possible so we have them done and we don't miss anything. As luck would have it, later when the skies cleared, I said "Lets go back out!" (it was super laid back and I love wedding days like this!). Leanda + Austin headed back out for more portraits without an umbrella this time. What do you know, we get the most beautiful golden hour shortly after. Who would have known that a forecast for rain all day and a few heavy rain showers would all lead to gorgeous images with even a rainbow.

We ended the night with the closest of friends + family and if you ask me, it was the perfect ending!

PS. Can we also give a big clap to that wedding party who trusted me in the pouring rain so I could get 2 minutes of party portraits? YOU DA BOMB. 

Alison Gardner // Milton Senior High School

Alison and I walked all around Williamsport for her senior session, taking photos at some favorite places and chatting about all of the extra-curricular she is involved in at school.  As her shoot went on and she got more comfortable in front of the camera, you could see her confidence shine. With that beautiful smile and radiant personality, I knew her photos would be nothing short of amazing. 

Not only is she a busy student planning for college, she is also involved in Varsity and competition cheerleading, the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Team Cambodia, Outdoor club and the Student Government.

She decided to pamper herself a little before her shoot and get her hair and makeup done. Her outfits and accessories were perfect to show her personality and style. I know she will do so many great things at Wilkes University, and I hope they are ready for that big, beautiful smile!
