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!

Simon's First Birthday | Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania



Simon and all of his little friends had a blast during his Halloween themed birthday party. They all dressed up in their costumes and ran around like the wild children we've come to love. The party was extra special for me because Simon's Mom & Dad are great friends of mine and after shooting my son's birthday, they asked me to do the same for their little guy. Simon's party was full of pumpkins, hay bales, candy, and cake...lots and lots of cake and Simon thoroughly enjoyed it. Happy First Birthday little man!

Christin & Michael | Musket Ridge Golf Course | Maryland Wedding



We love getting the opportunity to film at new places so when Christin & Michael contacted us about their Maryland wedding, we jumped on it. These two were so much fun to film and we are so excited to showcase their highlight film.

The day began at the hotel where Christin and the girls were finishing hair and makeup. As soon as the girls were ready, Christin kicked them out as her wedding dress had been kept a secret from all of them except her Matron of Honor. As soon as she was in the dress, we stepped outside to do a "first look" with the girls. It was a cool experience for us.

We headed over to Musket Ridge Golf Course as the guys were getting ready inside. We filmed Michael as he finished up with his tuxedo and then headed outside to the ceremony location. It was perfect that this wedding happened to be on a Sunday because it poured the day before. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and sun to soak up the rain for this outdoor ceremony. One of our favorite parts of the ceremony was capturing Michael's face as he turned around to see Christin. You could see his face light up with excitement as Christin walked down the aisle.

After the ceremony, we captured the photo session on the grounds of the golf course alongside Genevieve Leiper Photography. Genevieve was so much fun to work with and a top notch photographer. We hope to see her again in the near future.

The reception was held in the ballroom inside the Country Club and wow, it was decorated beautifully. The flowers, cake, centerpieces...everything looked fantastic. Michael Bell from MyDeejay rocked the tunes for the evening and did an awesome job. The place was wild by the end of the night as the wedding party and guests sang along to their college fight songs. Even Testudo the Terrapin made an appearance on the dance floor.

We can't thank both Christin & Michael and their families enough for having us capture your wedding day. We had so much fun spending the day with you. Good luck to you both in the future. Congrats again and enjoy!
