THE REEDS AT SHELTER HAVEN WEDDING

this reeds at shelter haven wedding was wonderful. it was full of lovely and warm people, hilarious dance moves and private vows by the bay. when i first spoke to vinny and kate, they had another venue they had chosen but then moved their wedding to the reeds at shelter haven after i told them how awesome of a place it was! having a wedding at the reeds at shelter haven means that you get married right on the bay, and that the sun sets a blanket right over top of your reception. it is seriously such a perfect place for a perfect couple.

vinny and kate were definitely one of the most gracious and loving couples we’ve ever had. the type of people that always make sure that you’re okay or making sure you’re drinking champagne WITH them. and you can always tell a lot about a person from the speeches that are given. and these speeches were spot on to their personalities. they did private vows (hint hint, we love this!) on a dock on the bay. this was private and intimate, so intimate that i couldn’t even hear it. but to have a moment where its just you two, no one else and you are reading your “forever” words to each other – this is where its at people. and not only were vinny and kate so awesome, so were their guests. and im telling you what, nothing makes us happier to arrive to a wedding where everyone is happy, and happy you are there! we are just so thankful to have had this opportunity to photograph this wedding at the reeds!

asheville engagement session

 

this asheville engagement session was so much fun! sam, trey and i ran around an awesome parking garage in downtown! strange, i know. parking garages? cute? yeah, well, guess what they are! asheville has such a unqiue vibe and wonderful energy and so does trey and sam. so this engagement session showcases love, but the cool corners of asheville, nc.

when sam and trey had found me on instagram, because of hashtagging #ashevilleweddingphotographer (dont forget photographers, be sure to be on that hashtag game) i was STOKED! i’m not going to in too far with our story with them quite yet, as we’ll be sharing their wedding shortly, but we connected instantly. they genuinely care. we laughed SO much that my face hurt for the entire hour we were photographing this session. we walked all around the two separate parking garages that were in downtown asheville, and had a blast finding little light pockets, playing with morning light and overall creating a fun, urban and minimal engagement session!

we really adore traveling! we try the best that we can to book weddings outside of the area we live in, pennsylvania. so we are so incredibly thankful for them asking us to do this! we are so inspired by new areas, new venues, new cities etc. it’s like a blank canvas and we have all of the paint colors in the world. its a blank slate for us, and we love it!!

we love traveling to any and all locations in the world, especially asheville. if you’d like to chat with us about your asheville wedding, contact us here!

a colorful spring citrus wedding 

A SPRING WEDDING FULL OF COLORS AND CITRUS

[ here is the boost of inspiration you need for your colorful spring wedding]

 

A COLORFUL SPRING CITRUS WEDDING

everyone needs a little spring in their life no matter the time of the year, so we’re bringing you this colorful spring citrus wedding so you can live through these colors and hopefully puts a smile on your face. this is a shoot that we did in 2017, but given our weather recently here in PA, we felt like it was necessary to throw in a colorful spring citrus wedding to the blog. get ready to be yearning for spring after you scroll through.

THE TEAM

the team that we put together for this shoot was one of a kind. the good thing about styled shoots is just letting the vendors do their thang without hovering over them and directing their every move. i told them colorful. i told them spring time feels. i told them i wanted grapefruit. and wa-lah, they knew exactly what to create. i mean, the florals alone, by blossom bliss, makes me want to cry. she literally knew exactly what to do to make it look like the most colorful spring citrus wedding! and that  freaking makeup, people, veronica knows whats up! and the TREES that lynwood was giving us was working up one the most colorful shoots i’ve ever done. without out those trees this colorful spring and citrus shoot would’t have been as colorful as it was. marah created the most romantic look for meredith’s hair! and taylored for you chose the best gown to pair perfectly with both hair and makeup. talk about a spring bridal look! swoon came in clutch as always having just what we needed in rentals, including this fruit basket that we turned into a centerpiece but covered in florals! and that table?!! yasssss country creek farmhouse tables slayed it! and you all need to check out that ceremony sign made by considered inspired rentals – angie is so freaking talented! and to top it all off, anchored creative whipped up stationary to take this colorful spring and citrus wedding up to the next level. a huge thanks to all of you for supplying your time and efforts.

THE COUPLE – A PERSONAL TOUCH

our couple, brett and meredith were freaking real and down to earth. it just so happened that their anniversary was coming up shortly after this colorful spring and citrus wedding shoot. so we thought, why not add a love letter into this. so at the end of the shoot we had brett read his letter to meredith. we ended the day on an emotional but good note.
