So to start my “catch up phase”…flashing back to this warm weather wedding in Spring.  What a romantic day Kristin & Chris had and I can’t even say how sweet these two are.  🙂  After Kristin was dressed and ready, they opted to meet at Millcreek’s Metropark Farm for a first look.  If you haven’t heard me say it before, I love when a couple chooses to do the first look.  This moment is all about them.  I love when the groom see’s his bride and is just like, “wow”.  The farm is a perfect backdrop for that and for the formals that followed.  With one of the fastest ceremonies following (seriously, they told me it would be quick, but it was even quicker than that…lol).  Then some more gorgeousness when the sun started to set at the golf club.

How cute is Chris's mom with this blackboard at the front door.  LOVE!

I’d never had the chance to shoot at a castle before, so when Carri told me that’s where we’d be shooting the bridal party formals on her & Roy’s wedding day – I was pretty excited.  🙂  I expected to pull up and find the castle crawling with bridal parties (you know, Millcreek Flower Garden style), but we had the entire place to ourselves – giving us plenty of time to play!  Carri & Roy are such a sweet couple and I had a great time capturing their day for them.  Here are some of my favs!

I told the girls, you wouldn't see their faces in this shot. As you can see, Carri & her sister had some fun with that. LOL

The party was lots of fun!

The dj I recommend to all my couples! DJ Branden....a total blast! 🙂

My newest little nephew…I love him.  🙂

I was so lucky to get more than one smile from him. 🙂

An outtake...from when I was trying to get him back to sleep. So sweet.

Another smile...

Nico and his mama...

A couple of weeks before my nephew was born, we (my sister-in-law and I) decided it would probably be a good time to capture some memories of her pregnancy.  So I loaded up the car with my equipment and my little girl and we headed over for a session that my little one decided she would also like to be included in.  🙂

His room is decorated so cute and all of his toys are waiting for him. 🙂

My little girl jumped in from time to time and would come up with her own pose - lol. 🙂

As I catch up on my blogging, Nico’s newborn pics will be up soon!

The past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity of photographing some great seniors…from football players to a city girl, the best thing about these sessions is how unique they are to the individual.  Mike is a senior in Salem and an amazing athlete (I’ve been told).  So we headed to Reilly Field for a few shots in his jersey and then to the park for what I like to call the mom shots.  You know the guys…most want the “tough” shot, but mom is going to make them dress up for a few and why shouldn’t she.  It’s a parent’s last chance to get their child to take pictures the way they want them to look.  🙂  Both turned out great.  Thank you, Diana, for returning to me this year with your second graduating son.  It was a total pleasure!

The wall was painted white, so this worked out perfect!
