If you didn't see the first preview I posted of Becky & Zac's wedding ceremony on their wooded upstate New York property, check that out now! It was beautiful. After the ceremony, the wedding guests headed to Eremita Winery in Lodi, New York, for thai food, wine, and celebrating the newlyweds outside as the summer sun set.
Special thanks to my rockstar assistant Katherine Albin.
Becky & Zac came prepared to their wedding...with fake teeth.
Olivia is my cousin so nothing I say here can accurately express how much it meant to take her senior portraits. She's starting her last year of high school all the way out in Colorado, but despite living so far away, she and her family manage to visit Pennsylvania almost every summer. This July we spent a smolderingly hot day taking these photos at her grandma's farm. I can't get over how glamorous she looks! Seems like just yesterday... :)
I met Becky just three months before her wedding and was thrilled when she and Zac hired me as their photographer. They're high school sweethearts who moved to upstate NY and spent the past few months clearing a site on their wooded property just for their wedding ceremony. My hands-down favorite part of being a wedding photographer is being able to document couples getting hitched who are unabashedly crazy about each other, and, let me tell you, Becky and Zac did not disappoint. Check out the photos below for proof.
The moment when Becky's family first saw her in her wedding dress:
Last summer when Sarah first asked me take her senior portraits (a full year early!), I was thrilled. I've known her since she was a wee elementary school girl, which added a level of sentimentality and sweetness to the joy of working with her. The photographs were all taken in her backyard on one of the hottest days we've had this summer, but you can't tell from looking at Sarah in her portraits; she looks pristine, right?!
Nathan got his diploma a year ago, but because he graduated non-traditionally, he never got senior portraits taken. This summer, he's headed out west for the time of his life, skipping from farm to farm and working his way across the country, so his parents asked if I could take some portraits of him before he heads out into this vast land of ours. I've known Nathan since he was a fresh-faced, 15 year-old coworker of mine in Lewisburg, so this was quite the honor! Bit of trivia: his dog's name is Scoby, which stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. This guy's cool, right?
