Hunter + Lauren ~ NOAH's Event Venue Wedding ~ Cranberry Township, PA

Nothing makes wedding photography more fulfilling for me than watching two people who truly love each other joyfully make commitments to remain together forever. This kind of love is not a feeling (those come and go!)...instead it is a decision to be selfless and choose the other before you choose you yourself. I've had the privilege of seeing this in Hunter & Lauren as I've watched their relationship unfold, but it was even more evident on their wedding day. The way that Hunter dotes on Lauren and smiles at her as if she is the only thing in the world worth his time is beautiful (gentlemen...hope you're taking notes!). Lauren is, in turn, flattered (like any girl would be), but she does not consume it...rather, she pours that attention, love, and care out on everyone else. What a great combo they've got going on! 

Hunter & Lauren got married at NOAH's Event Venue in Cranberry Township, PA surrounded by lots of friends and family. This venue was elegant, yet simple and charming. Totally fit the bride & groom. I am so thankful to have been part of such a gorgeous day, celebrating two wonderful humans! So happy for you, Hunter & Lauren...may God lead you as you begin an amazing journey together!

*Special shoutout to my sister Kimberly Veldhuizen, who second shot this wedding with me! She was amazing, per usual. :) 

Nathan + Erin ~ Brookside Gardens Colorado Wedding

I consider myself extremely privileged to have been a small part of Nathan & Erin's beautiful wedding day. Not only did I get to fly out to Colorado (one of my most favorite places ever) and take photos at an extremely gorgeous venue, of some stunning people, on a perfectly 70-and-sunny spring day...BUT I got to spend the day with an amazing couple who were so excited to start their life together, surrounded by so many people who wanted to celebrate this time with them! I loved the simplicity and elegance of Nathan & Erin's truly reflected them as people. Enjoy this preview of some of my favorite shots from the day!

Special shout out to my second shooter, Kristen Spratt, who took some phenomenal photos to add to the collection.  

Nick + Brenna ~ Duportail House Wedding Photographer

When I got together with Nick & Brenna a few months before their wedding, they told me that they were getting married outside and that there wasn't really a backup plan if the weather didn't cooperate. So, I crossed my fingers and watched the weather forecast eagerly for 2 weeks leading up to their wedding...and we literally couldn't have gotten a more perfectly sunny-and-60's fall day! Whew!!!

Some of my favorite memories from this day were:

1) Nick constantly rubbing Brenna's arms because he was so worried she was cold (so sweet),

2) the CHEESE cake (not "cheesecake...but cheese'll see the picture! ;), and

3) the DANCING!!! (the DJ killed it, was all I could do not to party with everyone!).

Thanks, Nick & Brenna for inviting me to be a part of this amazing day!
