Rachel & Adam's Wedding Highlights - Outdoor Summer Wedding



We love the summer and we love outdoor weddings, and they fit perfectly together here in beautiful Central Pennsylvania. Rachel & Adam tied the knot at Spring Mount Farms, a charming, rustic location nestled between the mountains of Warriors Mark. There were so many little details that made this the perfect outdoor ceremony and barn reception.

We began the day on the back porch of the farmhouse with Adam and his groomsmen. The porch offered amazing views of the farm with a picture perfect mountain backdrop.You could feel the excitement and anxiousness of Adam as he got ready, surrounded by his best friends and family.

The girls arrived shortly after and got ready on the 2nd level of the farmhouse. The natural light pouring into the bedrooms and stairway was just spectacular for the dress and detail shots. As we finished up with Rachel, we headed down to the ceremony area which was set up beside a beautiful pond. The background during the ceremony was killer!

Rachel & Adam said their vows and were showered with flower petals as they walked down the aisle, husband and wife. We had the privilege of working with the fabulous Tammy Wolfe for the photo session. She is such a breeze to work alongside! Pretty much anywhere you looked, there was a great location for shooting.

Right next to the farmhouse was the barn, a rustic old style finish with some great modern decor mixed in. It had huge doors and windows that allowed a ton of sunlight to stream onto the dance floor. Nittany Entertainment supplied the dancing tunes while Rachel & Adam and their wedding party danced the night away.

We had an unbelievable time at this wedding. Congratulations to Rachel & Adam and both of their families. Thank you for having us share in your wedding day!

Jada & Kevin's Wedding Day - Outdoor Ceremony & Barn Reception



Talk about a cloudless sky…Jada & Kevin's wedding day was the brightest day we've had this year in Central Pennsylvania. And it was perfect for an outdoor ceremony at the beautiful La Ferme Rouge in Patton, PA. The sun shined as bright as Jada & Kevin's love is for each other.

The day began with Jada & her bridesmaids doing hair and makeup at the lovely Courtyard by Marriott in Altoona. We spent some time hanging out with them as they prepped for the big day and then traveled to the barn to film Kevin as he got ready. La Ferme Rouge has a beautiful rustic barn where they hold their receptions and just outside is where the ceremony took place.

As the ceremony ended, we worked alongside Julie from Julie Buck Photography. She is so AWESOME! Make sure you check out her work on her website. Jada & Kevin are two of the happiest and most fun people we've ever had the pleasure to work with. They were up for anything and had smiles stuck on their faces the entire day.

I can't get over how beautiful the inside of this barn is. It really shows during their first dance together. The party continued with Boomerang Sound laying down the tracks for the rest of the evening. We even got to be there for their sparkler exit at the end of the night.

Big congratulations to Jada & Kevin and their wonderful families. It was our pleasure to share your special day with you. Cheers & good luck!

Ashley & Michael - Johnstown, Pennsylvania Wedding



Here it is, the final wedding highlight film of 2013. And what a year it's been! I can't thank everyone enough for such an amazing year. From our first wedding back in April to our last few here in November, we have been so lucky to share in all of these peoples lives! I wouldn't trade any of it for the world! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

So I met Ashley & Michael just a few weeks before their wedding and from that first meeting, I could tell that these two are great people. They are laid-back, genuine people and I couldn't wait for their wedding day. The day started with both Ashley & Michael getting ready at the church. This church is great and the pastor is from my hometown which makes it even better. The guys got dressed downstairs while the girls finished their makeup in the bridal suite. As soon as we finished up with Ashley and her dress, it was time for the ceremony.

As the ceremony finished, we shot the photo session alongside Stacey & George from Catchlight Photography. They were a pleasure to work with and we surely hope our paths cross again in the future. We left the church and headed to the Compass Inn Musuem in Ligonier, PA. This place had a great rustic feel and we captured some beautiful outdoor shots.
We ended the night at The Barn at Ligonier Valley. The place was packed with friends and family and tons of dancing. The bridal party even had huge cardboard cutouts of Ashley & Michael's faces. They were AWESOME!

Thanks to Ashley & Michael for such an amazing time. We hope you guys had as much fun as we did! And thanks to all of our couples for making this year so special for us. We are looking forward to making many more friends in 2014!

Jenna & Ryan - October Wedding in Central Pennsylvania



I've said it time and time again, Fall is the absolute best time of year here in Central Pennsylvania. And as far as weddings go, it's my favorite time of year. Jenna & Ryan had a perfect day for a wedding and we had an amazing time sharing in their big day.

Jenna & Ryan have been friends of mine for a number of years now and they are PERFECT for each other. They are both kind and caring individuals, but I think the thing that holds them together is their sense of humor. They joke, smile and laugh at just about everything. Seriously, these two are so much fun to be around!

We started off the day at the church where both sides of the wedding party were getting ready. We finished up with prep and it was time for the ceremony. I couldn't think of a better pastor to marry these two. She was hilarious! We captured some family photo session footage at the church and then made our way to Valley View Park in Altoona.

I can't say enough good things about Christina Garber and her 2nd shooter Sarah. They were a blast to work with and I can't wait to work alongside them again. The park setting was a beautiful backdrop with colorful leaves on the trees and scattered about on the ground. I am so glad we decided to go there because we ended up with some amazing footage!

The reception was held at the fabulous Casino in Lakemont. It was actually the first reception in the big room for us and was it ever nice! A big thanks to Local Motion DJ's for keeping the party rocking throughout the night.

We are so thankful to Jenna & Ryan and both of their families for letting us share in their wedding day! Best of luck to you both in the future and enjoy your wedding highlights!

Katie & Jesse - September Wedding in Altoona, Pennsylvania



So what else can the end of September bring besides another beautiful wedding day! I've known Katie for a long time, in fact we graduated from high school together. And although I only met Jesse on their wedding day, it felt like I had known him for a lot longer. Both Katie & Jesse are the kind of people that are just fun to be around. And their wedding was exactly that, FUN!

The guys were getting ready at Jesse's parents house when we arrived. You could tell from the start that everyone was really excited for the day to begin. Whiskey shots in the driveway anyone? Once we were Inside, we filmed Jesse as he put on his tux and then were quickly out the door and over to the Cathedral.

We met up with Katie at the church as well as Krista & Mike from The Hurst's Photography. Outside of the Cathedral, we captured some beautiful detail shots of the dress & shoes just before Katie was ready to get dressed. Once she finished up, it was time for the ceremony.

As the ceremony ended, we worked alongside Krista & Mike on the steps just outside of the Cathedral. The exterior of the Cathedral is always a breathtaking backdrop, especially when the weather cooperates! Luckily, the lighting was amazing and we got some great shots before heading over to the reception.

We had the privilege of working with Dancing DJ's again for the reception. They are always so easy to work with and we really appreciate everything they do for us! But there was one more thing I was anxiously awaiting since we booked with Katie & Jesse and that was the Michael O'Brian Band! Yes, towards the very end of the night, the Michael O'Brian Band played all their hits along with a few covers of some popular artists. This was so much fun and really got the guests into the dancing. 


Thanks so much to Katie & Jesse and both of their families for an amazing time. We had a blast spending the day with you and wish you the best of luck in the future. Enjoy your video!

Winter Marriage Proposal - Devin & Kerry - Altoona, Pennsylvania



I can't even begin to put into words how much I love doing what I do. I get to meet some of the most amazing people in the world and share in their once in a lifetime moments. I mean seriously, this job is the absolute best!

So just a few days ago, Devin contacted me about filming his proposal to his longtime girlfriend Kerry. I was extremely excited and also a bit nervous. It was the first time I was asked to do something like this and I had to stay hidden during the whole thing! So Devin and I scouted out the location and came up with a plan of attack.

Wednesday was the big day and wow, was it ever cold! The wind was blowing and I was certain that all of Devin's hard work was going to be ruined by the elements. But just as Kerry arrived, the wind went away and snowflakes started showering down from the sky. It was PERFECT! As Kerry was taking in all of the promise cards and decorations, Devin walked up behind her with the ring...and of course she said YES! 

Thanks to Devin & Kerry for letting me share in this joyous event. I was thrilled to be able to capture this memory for you and let you cherish it forever. Enjoy the video!
