Carley and Auston's Sweet Elverson Camp Wedding

What a joyful day it was for Carley and Auston! I arrived to the sweetest Airbnb (barn turned loft!!) where Carley was busy getting ready with her girls. Her dress was simply stunning and beautifully complimented by the most incredible antique looking flowers by Jena Paige, which just matched this bride and the space beautifully. Excitement filled the air, something I feel with almost every wedding, but it's always a little different. A little unique. As Carley slipped on her shoes and her mother fluffed her veil, there was just this quiet joy. And it continued and grew as she sat to read a letter from her soon-to-be-husband, trying to hold in tears that inevitably escaped. Their wedding day had really begun!

Just a few minutes down the road Auston waited patiently for his bride. Literally over the river and into the woods she came to him for their adorable first look! You can see for yourself how sweet that one was =) There were so many opportunities throughout the day for portraits with these two and I was thrilled! It wasn't long before their bridal party joined them and soon enough we were on our way to Action Impact for their ceremony.

Beside the lake, under the trees, guests began to gather. There are few things better than the sound of voices singing out into nature, this was such a beautiful beginning to the ceremony. Carley and Auston shared vows, exchanged rings, and worshipped God together during these moments of becoming husband and wife. Wedding day's are such wonderful things, but there's a raw joy that just spills from the ceremony and it was so wonderful to capture that being embraced!

Portraits amongst ferns with golden light leaking through was definitely one of the highlights of the day - closely followed by the Dough & Co. truck that showed up towards the end of their reception, just after we finished sunset portraits! (For you who don't know - that would be scoops of ice cream and scoops of cookie dough - for real, so delicious). Enjoy discovering and reliving the rest of their day for yourself below! Carley and Auston, it was such a joy to be there to capture your day. Wishing you so much joy in your marriage! Congratulations again!!

Micah and Kayla's Joyful Saint Augustine Wedding

Last month I was in St. Augustine's sunny summer of March getting ready to photograph Kayla and Micah's wedding. And THESE TWO! My goodness. A tiny bit of a backstory: I've known Micah since highschool, when he was rocking an afro and tripp pants (needless to say we've come a long way since then). I first met Kayla for their engagement session at Valley Forge National Park last year and quickly found out that she is one of the sweetest people that exists. Probably ever.

They are the perfect fit! Through and through.

I can't even begin to explain to you have much joy filled this day! From the very beginning of the day we were all in tears. Micah with his mom, Kayla's first look with her dad - some of the most wonderful moments that I had the privilege of being there to experience and capture for them. (I will never stop being in awe of that) And it just kept going throughout the day! There is so much love between these two, their families, and friends. I hope you have so much fun looking through these photos to relive the memories or experience it all for the first time!

Congratulations once more to Mr. and Mrs. Nihart <3 Can't wait until I can come visit you both!

Marisa and George's Tug Hill Winery Wedding

Anticipation and tears and laughter and joy...I don't think there are enough words to describe all of the wonderful emotions and moments on Marisa and George's wedding day! Tug Hill Winery provided the perfect backdrop for this late summer day. Their first look was definitely my favorite - George's reaction to seeing his bride to be had me in tears instantly! (Which happened again as she walked down the aisle to him) Excitement and love just filled every space these two were in; I can't gush enough about these two!! Thank you so much to Jenny Haury for asking me to be a part of capturing this beautiful day!
