We went out after dinner for some portraits in the field which is right near the where the Bloomsburg Fair is held.  These sessions usually only last 5-10 minutes but are such a great time to get some relaxed portraits of the bride and groom.

Eileen and Jim chose a sunny April day for their wedding in Cape May, Nj at the Southern Mansion.  We started with a few getting ready images and headed over to the beach for the first look and bridal party portraits.  The ceremony took place on the lawn of the Southern Mansion.  We had a great time capturing their day.

Here is a glimpse!

Kelley and Doug choose New Hope for their engagement session, because they enjoy going there for a little getaway each year.  We met up with them on a super beautiful Monday afternoon.  We ventured around the streets and along the water for some fun shots of the two of them.  They are absolutely adorable together and we can’t wait to be capturing their nuptials at the Barn at Boones Dam this November!
