Kayleigh & Daniel | Lancaster, Pennsylvania Wedding



I have to start by saying wow, what an awesome location for a wedding in Eastern Pennsylvania. From the river and trees surrounding the farmhouse to the natural light pouring in through the windows of the ballroom, Riverdale Manor was the perfect spot for Kayleigh & Daniel to tie the knot. And we had such a blast with these two throughout the day. Between the tears of joy and excitement, you could tell immediately that Kayleigh & Dan are totally in love with each other.

We are overjoyed to have been a part of this huge event in their lives and wish them the absolute best in their future together. Enjoy!

Maddie's Prom | June 26, 2016 | Altoona, Pennsylvania



It is amazing what can happen when people come together for one common goal. In this case, the goal was simple and genuine. Make Maddie have a night she would never forget. A little over a month ago, Maddie was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor in her brain stem. While the prognosis is poor, Maddie's family is choosing to have a positive outlook. I never met Maddie or her family until her prom night, but it is evident that she is one strong little girl. You can tell that her story has touched so many lives and the love and support shown from the community was overwhelming.

Even though I only met Maddie for a few hours, I hope that this highlight video of her prom will be something she can watch over and over again with a smile on her face. Keep smiling Maddie, we are all smiling with you.

Mary & Tyler | Spring Wedding | Cresson, Pennsylvania



Beyond excited to share our second wedding film of 2016! This one took place on yet another cold and rainy Saturday here in Central Pennsylvania, but that didn't stop Mary & Tyler from having the best day ever. They met at Saint Francis University so it only made sense that their ceremony would be at the chapel on campus. The night ended with a lovely reception at the Casino at Lakemont Park. We are thrilled to have met such a warm and happy couple and wish them many years of love and happiness.

Mary & Nick | Fall Wedding | Carrolltown, Pennsylvania



Our final wedding highlight of 2015 could not have been with a better couple. Mary and Nick are two amazing people and we had a blast capturing their wedding day.

The day began at Nick's parents house with the guys getting ready downstairs. They had an awesome bar in their basement so we obviously centered most of the guy's prep around that. As the guys finished up, Mary had prepared a basket for Nick which included a personal message to Nick as well as some must have Groom items for the big day.

We then traveled over to Mary's house where the girls were just getting done with hair and makeup. You could see the excitement on Mary's face as she got into her dress with the help of her sisters. As we finished with the ladies, Nick had prepared a little note for Mary as well. Her face lit up as she read through each hand written card.

The ceremony was held at St. Benedict Catholic Church in the center of Carrolltown. This church had a lot of history for Mary and Nick and you could tell that they were all so happy to be tying the knot there. As the ceremony finished, we worked with Nick Finochio for the photo session. Every time we work with Nick, I know it's going to be an awesome day and this day was no different. We ventured out to some pretty cool fields and hillsides between Carrolltown and Northern Cambria and got some great footage.

Everyone came together for the reception at the Contres-Greer Social Hall in Northern Cambria. Third Wave Sound provided the music and entertainment for the evening and did a spectacular job. Thanks to Bob for being so easy to work with. The night ended with a beautiful sparkler exit for the newlyweds.

Thanks to Mary and Nick for having us be a part of your wedding day. We had so much fun with you guys and wish you the best of luck in your future together. Enjoy!

Jennifer & Robert | Backyard Wedding | Sypesville, Pennsylvania



We are always up for a backyard wedding, but nothing could describe what we experienced at Jennifer's family home. An enormous tent, tons of food, and sunflowers, rows and rows of sunflowers. It was amazing!

Our entire day was spent at Jennifer’s home, except for the 2 minute walk down the street to her brother’s house for prep with the guys. It was really a family affair in this quaint little town of Sypesville. We started with Jen and the girls as they got ready downstairs. Outside, the finishing touches were taking place at the ceremony and reception areas. As soon as Jen was finished with hair and makeup, we went upstairs to her room where she put on her dress.

Down the street, Robert and the guys were hanging out watching football. Robert finished putting on his suit and tied his son’s bowtie, with a little help from Google of course. Once the guys were finished, it was time to exchange vows.

It was an absolutely beautiful end of summer day as Jennifer and Robert said their vows outdoors, in the field just behind her parent’s house. With the seal of a kiss, they walked back down the aisle hand in hand.

As the sun began to creep closer to the horizon, we worked alongside Ryan and Abbey from Ryan Zarichnak Photography. Obviously, we used the sunflowers as a backdrop for the photo session. Jennifer’s father planted these sunflowers in the spring especially for the wedding and wow, did they look stunning!

The party started as Top Dog Productions rocked the house and into the night. They completed the evening with a custom spotlight of Jennifer & Robert’s names on a water tower a few hundred yards away. Truly an amazing day! Thanks to Jennifer & Robert and both of their families for having us capture their wedding day. We had so much fun spending the day with you and wish you nothing but the best in your future together. Enjoy!
