What can be better than a beautiful wedding with two people deeply in love with each other in a perfect setting? How about a few bands and the groom tossing a bass on for a few songs before getting serious and strapping on a guitar to throw down some serious playing. Yep, that was Amanda and Mike’s wedding day at The Barn at Glistening Pond. It was seriously a great time, with great people, great live music and one of the most beautiful settings around. I’m not sure it gets any better than that. Congrats to you guys on a great day and many happy years together. You’re an amazing couple and your love is obvious to anyone who spends some time around you.

Here are a few pics from the day.

Well you can tell it is getting to be busy season – we have been a little delinquent on our blog posts. Sorry about that. We’ll pull it back together here and get you more photos to show.

For now, we wanted to share Dawn and Bob’s wedding with you from the Colonnade, one of our favorite places to shoot. Dawn and Bob are a really nice couple and we had the pleasure of spending all day with them at the Colonnade in a really relaxed atmosphere getting to know them even better. We heard some stories about how they met and their families and how beautifully their families combined. The speeches were touching and unique and there was so much love between Dawn and Bob it was really an honor to be able to capture it.

Thank you for letting us be a part of a really special day. On to the photos!

It’s not often that dates for weddings jump from one week to the next and back again. But such is the life of a serviceman – another sacrifice to be made in service to our country. Bob and I were so honored to shoot Brooke and Scott’s wedding. It started off easily enough. Hey guys, right now we are looking at March 5 or March 12. OK, no problem. Ok guys, it looks like March 5. Check that March 12. Check that March 5. Final answer. Haha. No sweat we will be there.

And what a great time. There was a beautiful Catholic service and it was followed up with a great reception at the East Mountain Inn in Wilkes-Barre. But I don’t think there was a whole lot of time for recovering after the reception. Scott had been assigned to a base out west so they were packing their bags and getting ready for a new adventure.  So Bob and I want to wish you guys good luck one more time, share a few photos and of course thank them both for the sacrifice they make for all of us.

I’ll save you all the talking that normally goes with our blog posts. Sometimes it’s helpful to take a look back at where you have been and remember some good times. It’s certainly been a helluva year. Bob and I have a wedding tomorrow that officially kicks off wedding season for us, so why not throw up some of our favorite images from the past year. This is no way an inclusive list, rather a quick spin through our archives. Thank you to all of the beautiful and wonderful couples who have welcomed us into their homes and hearts. And, yes, thanks to a great and trusted partner in Bob. I think even a few of his images are in here. Lol!

It’s almost impossible to believe that we are still catching up on some blog posts but here we are. Maybe this one will take you back to summer a little when Bob and I visited King’s College with Megan and J.C. for their shoot. What an amazing couple to spend the day with and so easy to work with. Surprisingly, J.C. is a great guy, even though he is a Patriot’s fan (Jets’ fan Bob made me write that.) Thanks to J.C., we even had some access inside the buildings where we could try a few different shots as well.

Now I should also mention there was a gorilla suit involved but I think that’s going to be for a different time and maybe deserves its own blog post. We’ll see. For now, we hope you enjoy these images, and we can’t wait for the wedding, which is coming up soon!

It was just a passing glance a couple of years ago, but I was hooked. She stood on a hill and was stunning. It was the first time I had seen Skytop Lodge in the Poconos, and I was in love. Rising over a massive property, the main building at Skytop is nothing short of majestic with its stone exterior and perfectly appointed interior.

A couple of years have passed since I first saw her. I know her a little better now thanks to Ashley and Wayne, and she has been everything I imagined. Bob and I recently visited the iconic Poconos resort for Ashley and Wayne’s wedding. We’re so grateful for  being invited and being introduced to their friends and families. We had so many laughs and built so many memories with them in just the day we spent with them. It won’t be a wedding either of us will forget for a long time.  A lot of times after a wedding I’ll try to think of what moment had an impact on me. They are emotional days and it’s impossible not to feel that.  In Ashley and Wayne’s case, it had the be the album. Wayne had built for her a beautiful album of photos and memories that he was trying and trying and trying to give to Ashley at the reception. It took awhile. What can you do, receptions can be a good time.

It was all worth it once Ashley saw the album, though.  As Wayne predicted, Ashley cried as she pored over the pages . It was such a sweet gesture and really showed how deeply in love Ashley and Wayne are. It’s a privilege to witness those moments.

As for Skytop, I’ll be seeing her again very soon.
