Nicole + Samvel | Punta Cana, Dominican Republic Wedding

Nicole & Sam’s breathtaking beach wedding will be sending everyone out for a destination wedding! The water was SO blue and you can never go wrong with palm trees and bare feet in the sand. Their wedding was calm and beautiful and so elegant that it made me wonder why I didn’t do this myself 15 years ago!

This stunner of a wedding will go down as one of my all time favorites. These two were not only gorgeous and pretty much look like models but they were also some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet! Their entire group of guests were not much different either making it the sweetest time in the Dominican yet. Everywhere you turned was a picturesque spot and the Caribbean atmosphere is the best.

We started the day with photos in the hotel getting ready for both the bride and groom followed by some group pictures of their amazing guests. Guest who came all the way out to the DR to watch them tie the knot and be there to support them. The ceremony was next and was set up on the beach… you guys, it was breathtaking!!! It was so gorgeous that people were stopping and watching the ceremony still in their bathing suits. (Can I tell you how many men in Speedos I had to edit out? Haha! Not what you want to see when you’re looking at wedding photos ;) Even after the wedding people were coming over and taking photos with the set up. And how can you blame them!? I loved Sam’s face when he saw Nicole come down that sandy aisle! Their ceremony was fun and light hearted; full or smiles and laughter from everyone. After their first kiss everyone celebrated with champagne before heading out for photos on the beach and on the hotel grounds. Obviously, this is MY favorite part :) I have to say I was a little overwhelmed because I had so many photos I wanted to do! Kid in the candy store moment for sure! I’m pretty sure I delivered them over 100 photos form this time period alone but I couldn’t resist!! They were all so amazing! A sweet reception dinner was waiting afterwards followed by an amazing party within the palm trees. (Did you ever see a speaker plugged into a palm tree? I have!) They celebrated late into the night and will continue to celebrate their marriage forever! Congratulations to Nicole & Samvel!! Thank you so so much for allowing me to be a part of your big day!

Greg + Hannah | Geneva, Florida Wedding

When I checked the forecast for this wedding in January in Geneva, Florida I was a little nervous. For Florida it didn’t look like the best weather with a chill in the air and possible rain. But when the day arrived the sun came out and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day for Greg & Hannah! For an outdoor, backyard wedding this is always great news! I’m pretty sure that even if it rained cats and dogs these two wouldn’t have minded anyway. They were too excited and happy for their big wedding day and nothing could have changed their happiness about the day finally arriving after months of planning. They planned the most perfect donut stand, pizza menu, and personalization everywhere! From the monogrammed cups to the Jenga piece guestbook, the little touches were everywhere and made the day so much fun. They had one of the cutest flower pups in their bridal party with his own sunflower collar and the prettiest bridal party EVER! They are obviously great party planners and I know they had an amazing team of family members helping them create their most perfect day. Beyond the party itself was these two who are clearly just smitten with each other! Their eyes light up for each other and they were just some of absolute SWEETEST people around. I am so excited to share just a handful of photos with you because it was not an easy feat! There were so many amazing moments and pretty things captured that I seriously struggled on what to share! I think I got it narrowed down though so take a look at just a few highlights from their amazing wedding day. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Strobl!!!

Nicole + Samvel | Longwood Gardens Engagement

How GORGEOUS are these two!? And how about these gardens!? My first session being back in Pennsylvania and it totally did not disappoint! There may not be any palm trees but these flowers and trees are stunning especially with such a sweet couple in front :) I loved hearing about how they met and how everything fell into place for them. Even their wedding day which will be on the beach just like they had talked about but thought would not happen. I’m so excited to see them say “I do” in the Dominican Republic this July. It will be a gorgeous day for sure!

Lauren + Matt | Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

Gosh these two are just the cutest! They were so fun and silly with each other that we all had a great time capturing some fun and sweet moments of the bride and groom to be! It was a new place to shoot for me but it definitely won't be the last as it was a perfect mix of architecture and open fields. For April it was pretty colorless but that didn't stop us from getting beautiful shots! Ugh, c'mon winter, enough already! I can't wait to go back when more of the trees are in bloom! If you want to see more photos of these two amazing people then stay tuned because their wedding day is just around the corner! September will be a busy wedding month in PA which I am pretty excited about!!!
