Greta and Josh were married this month at Bear Creek Ski Resort.  I have known Greta's family for almost fifteen years, her cousin having been MY maid of honor at my wedding and one of her sisters being another one of my closest friends.  I was so excited that they wanted me to shoot their day and have been anticipating it with them for almost a year.  It was such a wonderful day with so many special people.  The love between Greta and Josh is just so apparent.  They have a quiet kind of appreciation for one another that you can see within moments of being around them.  It is one of the truest bonds I've seen.

Greta and Josh, it was an honor to photograph your wedding, your families and your love for one another.  Thank you so much for including me in such a special day!

Christine and Bryan were married on October 9, a perfectly crisp fall day.  Christine's house was surrounded by trees with gorgeously changing leaves which made a really nice backdrop for some nice fall shots.  I had the pleasure of working with David Wong again on this one and he did a fantastic job.  Check out some more of his images over on his blog.  Both the wedding and reception were held at the Highlands at Newberry Estate.  I had never worked at the Highlands before but I absolutely loved the ceremony location, it looked like something straight out of the Secret Garden.  

Christine and Bryan decided to see one another before the ceremony so we had a chance to do all of the bride and groom and wedding party shots while the light was nice and no one missed the cocktails.  I loved the fact that the first thing Bryan wanted to do upon seeing his bride was to forever preserve the moment on his iPhone :)  Mom had a camera or video camera in hand all day, this is a family who loves their photography, I dig it.

I'm getting worse at editing for the blog so here are....several.

Nancy and John were married last Saturday at Foxhill Country Club in Exeter, PA.  Both Nancy and John are the kind of people who could never make you feel unwelcome.  They are one of the sweetest and nicest couples I've met and the icing on the cake is that they are both chiropractors going into John's family business.  Does it get any cuter than that?  

I loved the church where they were married.  The only window inside the sanctuary poured light onto the bride and groom at the altar which made for some really beautiful images.  Thanks to Rae Barnes for doing an amazing job second shooting.  

Nancy and John, I hope you are having a wonderful time in Mexico, thank you for inviting us to be a part of your day!

I was looking forward to Beth and Adam's wedding all summer.  September was an unusually light month for me but I knew their wedding would more than make up for it.  Beth and I had emailed so frequently that I could visualize the wedding coming together before I even made it to the shore.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day, and Beth was a beautiful bride. 

Thank you Beth and Adam for sharing so much of your wedding experience with me and for your kindness and friendship. 

A little backstory : this amazing house belongs to Beth's Aunt Sally (pictured tearfully with Beth) and the whole week prior to the wedding was spent sprucing things up a little and making sure everything was perfect for the wedding.  Beth's entire family helped to make everything come together beautifully and Beth said that that experience was as meaningful as the wedding itself.

I've been super busy with engagement sessions, weddings and portraits but it makes me so inexplicably happy to know that fall is here!!  This is my favorite time of year and a great time for shoots with the perfect temperatures, changing leaves and the anticipation of the holidays.  Joanie and Josh chose to have their shoot in Central Park.  I can't wait for their wedding next fall, Joanie is going to be such a beautiful bride.  Joanie and Josh, you are an adorable couple and thank you Josh, for keeping me laughing through the whole session :)

Gorgeous photos! Kate has captured Joanie & Josh's energy AND the excitement of NYC perfectly. The beginning of a long and happy life together (or a trailer for a new chick flick!)

Blessings,
Cousin Sharon
