Doing a little catch up work on some blog posts from last year and wanted to share some photos from Meghan and Michael’s engagement session on a farm down in Wilkes-Barre. Yep, working on the farm. It’s always so great to work with amazing couples and these two were no exception. They were up for anything and put up with our ideas, which admittedly can sometimes involves standing in a stream or sweating to death in a greenhouse because we think there might be a shot. It’s great when we’re right – maybe not as great when we’re wrong. It’s all part of the process and maybe we snag a few laughs out of it as well. So here are some shots. We hope you enjoy them and remember to follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@2sticks) and on Instagram. Thanks!

It’s been a few weeks now since the coldest Parade Day in Scranton I’ve ever been to, and I wanted to throw up a few images form the day. I absolutely love Parade Day. For years, I missed big chunks of it because of my work at The Scranton Times. (Newspapers publish not matter how big the party.) But it’s great scene around the city and in the bars. I saved the bars for after the work was done. We’re really fortunate to have such a cool event and so many people who dedicate their time and effort to making it one of the best parades anywhere. A special congratulations goes out to my friend Jimmy Keeler, who was this year’s parade president. That’s an almost impossibly big job. So enjoy the photos and think warm thoughts because Spring is here. Just doesn’t feel like it today.

Hey all, we are going to share some photos today from a University of Scranton wedding, a place near and dear to my heart at least. I’m an alum. Wooohoooo!

Alright, but really these are about Kristin and Paul, two people with two of the biggest hearts you will ever be fortunate enough to meet. What a thrill is was to shoot their wedding. We can’t thank you guys enough for having us. So as the weather cools down today, here are some photos of two people deeply in love to keep you warm. There might be a few laughs in here too for good measure. Enjoy and happy New Year’s to all of our friends. May 2017 bring you nothing but love and joy.

I’m gonna slip a little reminder in here to Like us on Facebook, Twitter (@2sticks) and on Instagram. (Shameless plug done)

Alright so this will be the last time I apologize for being late on a blog post. It’s time to catch up so prepare yourself because there will probably be a winter flurry on photos flying around.

We wanted to share some photos from a summer trip deep into the heart of Virginia to hang out with Adam and Julie. It was a great time not only getting to know Julie and Adam better, and both Bob and I are travelers at heart so anytime we get to get out of here and go see some new stuff it’s a great day. We love how these photos came out. We had some interesting places to work with and both Julie and Adam were like tour guides so we got an insider’s look. Thanks for making us feel so welcome guys and we can’t wait for the wedding.

I’ve seen pretty much everywhere that 2016 was just a brutal year in a lot of ways. I’d have to agree. It was a total s**tshow at times, wasn’t it?

So now we come to the end of the year, and we’ve all seen a lot of change.
So Bob and I want to thank all our clients for what they have brought into our lives. It can’t be overstated how much each of you mean to us. We’ve shared some big moments with you, and it really is humbling for us. It’s what keeps us coming back. We see it in all kinds of things.
It’s your first dance.
It’s how you hold each other.
It’s your inside jokes.
It’s your hands reaching for each other.
It’s the letters you send each other to read before exchanging your vows.
It’s the gifts you give.
It’s the things you don’t have to say because your partner already knows.
Mostly, it’s how you look at each because you know you have your person.
That’s powerful stuff. And Bob and I want you to know that while we might be looking through the lens of a camera, we see those things and we could not be more thankful that you open yourselves up to us to let us get a glimpse. You guys killed it 2016, and it was amazing to watch.
With that being said, here is a photo from some of this year’s weddings. We think they do a pretty good job of showing your love, why we seek someone to share our lives with and that the nothing can ever contain this amazing gift. Cherish each other always.

Hey all, we wanted to give you guys a look at a wedding from this year at Skytop Inn and Resort, a nice place in the Poconos. There is so much to do at Skytop. It’s really amazing and the building is just spectacular. We even did some photos near a great waterfall that is just a few minutes away by shuttle. Of course. it’s also in the middle of a hiking trail so there was always the curious hiker stopping to grab a peek and say good luck to David and Patricia, our happy couple.

We had a great time getting to know them and their family and friends. The while day was just a blast, from the first look, which I always love, to the time we got to spend with just doing their portraits and hearing their stories. And well the reception is a giant party and I’m good with that every single time. All in all a great day with a great couple. Hope you enjoy the photos.
