We met these guys when they were turning into a family of one at their wedding in 2012.  You can find their video here  Diana had an eye for photography and actually assisted by second shooting with me on a few weddings.  I was so excited for them when I found out they were expecting, because we were expecting too!  Our kids are just 14 days apart.  Here is a peek at their family session at the Trexler Nature Preserve near Allentown.

Tara and Steve picked the most beautiful fall day in Williamsport to have their October Wedding.  Their ceremony was at the First United Methodist church.  They also got ready there.  After the ceremony we headed to Brandon Park for some portraits.  The reception was held at the Valley Inn in South Williamsport.  Check out this recap of their wedding.

Tara’s sister climber up here to hang Tara’s dress, cast on her foot and all.

Not often do I get the chance to hang a dress at the church.  So this was a welcome opportunity.

After having to reschdule their session for various reasons, we were so happy to have lucked out with the perfect fall day.  We journeyed around Tyler Park (got lost once) and really enjoyed the light through the trees of the early afternoon.  Looking forward to their wedding next June!

Beth and Mike were married the Tall Timber Barn.  It was such a cool and unique location set in a wooded area.  Their ceremony was outside and was so peaceful.  The reception celebration followed with unique diy details and an eclectic feel.  The bacon station was a hit with everyone.   The string lighting added a neat effect and ambiance to the rustic decor.  Here is a glimpse of Beth and Mike’s wedding day at the Tall Timber Barn.

Regina and Bob had their wedding reception at Whitewoods.  This was the first wedding of the year where it actually felt like fall!  I loved the colors they choose for their wedding.  The red dresses the girls wore really popped and went together perfectly with the guys attire.  After having their ceremony at St. Mary’s Church,  we headed to the Josiah Hess covered bridge for some portraits.  Once we arrived at Whitewoods the guests were there enjoying cocktail hour.  Shortly after it was introductions, dances and toasts.  The Dance floor started up right after dinner.  It was a perfect day with a perfect venue and the weather was amazing!   Here is a peek at Regina and Bob’s wedding day.
