Johanna & Nicholas: Wedding

Where have I been??? Things have been so busy around here, blogging has been put on the back burner. We are staying busy with shoots and weddings AND working on our house! We (Chad, my dad and I) layed floor in my office over the weekend, sealed our blacktop driveway, an even found a few moments to just sit, chat, and enjoy each others company.

Onto the wedding!

Church: First United Methodist Church of Erie, PA
Reception Venue: The Ambassador in Erie, PA

Nick and Jo's wedding was everything we dreamed it would be :) We photographed Jo's sister, Sophia's wedding last summer and instantly connected with the whole family. It was so great to see everyone again! Jo's bridesmaids were so much fun to hang out with all day! The whole bridal party was amazing! We had PERFECT weather, even though storms were forcasted all week. And hello, Nick and Jo are gorgeous!!!
Chad and I had so much fun and we can't wait to see all of you again! Thanks again!!

Jo, you're so cute :)

This was such a beautiful moment; they were singing "Amazing Grace". I took this photo and tears started welling up in my eyes. I had to walk away! You would think after so many weddings it would get less and less emotional- but that is not the case for me!

I love that court house!


Welcome to the party!

I love father/daughter moments like this.

You girls are so much fun!!!! (This was part of the choreography to their version of "Eye of the Tiger".)

Taking in the last few minutes of their perfect day...

Thanks again Nick and Jo!!!!

We had a bad windstorm over the weekend and we lost our internet connection as a result! We just got back online this afternoon. I want to apologize for not returning any emails since Friday.

Thanks for your patience :)

Michael: Senior Session

Here's another senior I can't believe is a senior! Michael was a lot of fun to photograph- we came across some new locations and had perfect weather to shoot in. I find it to be more of a challenge to photograph guys, but Michael was full of input and great in front of the camera! Enjoy the preview!!

I'd like to think I'm funny, but we were probably laughing at something he said.

Fun with revolving doors :)

We ended our shoot at a local park to get some shots of Michael in his soccer uniform. Something new for me but I always welcome a challenge :)

Zack: Senior Session

I had a GREAT time with Zack, his mom, and his sister (photo-shoot extradorinaire) Erin. It's funny to think of someone as your friends younger sibling for so long- thinking they'll never get any older. Then you realize "Oh yeah, he's going to graduate from high school this year!!!" (Which is the case for both of the senior sessions I had this week.)
Zack is such an easy going person, I knew his session would be laid back and a lot of fun. We all toughed out the heat and got some really great shots. Enjoy :)

Serious time.

Less serious time :)

I'm always jealous of eyes this blue!

Erin stepping in, to give some advice on posing.

Some very lovely light toward the end of the shoot!

Jungle? OR a litter-filled parking lot in the middle of Canton. I guess you'll never know.

Chelsea: Senior Session

I can't stop saying how much I love doing senior sessions! I had a great time with Chelsea- it was actually our 2nd shoot together. I did a family session for her family last year.
I'm so happy with the results. Enjoy the preview :)

I love the simplicity of this shot! She's such a natural in front of the camera!
