Melissa & Andrew - Altoona Wedding Film

I first met Melissa & Andrew about a year before their wedding day. At that point, I could already tell that they were an awesome couple. Totally laid back, but still up for anything. I also found out that we had a mutual friend, Kirstin, who was going to be the maid of honor. I knew that this was going to be a fun wedding day. 

Fast forward to June 29, 2013 and it was go time. We started out at Melissa's parents house with the girls as they were getting ready. You could tell that Melissa's mother was really excited as she helped her daughter with her wedding dress. Once we finished up with the girls it was time to head over for the guys prep.

Andrew and the guys were getting ready at their apartment and with a bunch of groomsmen, photographer and videographer all inside, we decided to finish up the prep on the back porch. We got some great shots of Andrew and his Dad as well as the rest of the guys.

We headed to the church in Altoona for the ceremony and then started the photo session alongside Megan from Megan Photography. And even though it threatened to rain almost the entire day, the rain held off and we filmed some amazing footage at the Penn State Altoona Campus.

The day was capped off with a beautiful reception in downtown Altoona at the Discovery Center. This place is awesome for wedding receptions and Boomerang DJ's did a fantastic job of keeping the party going.

Thanks to Melissa & Andrew for being an awesome couple to film throughout the day. They never stopped smiling and their love really showed through in each and every shot of them. Congrats to both of them and their families!

Kara & Matt - Wedding at The Hayloft - Rockwood, Pennsylvania

Kara & Matt have a story all their own and as I sat down for the pre wedding meeting with Kara, it was very exciting to find out how they met. Matt is a Navy diver and while stationed in Hawaii, he met Kara, who was conveniently there for spring break. The two hit it off and they never looked back.

We started out the wedding day with bride and groom prep in South Fork, PA. Kara and the girls did hair and makeup at her parent's house while Matt and the guys got ready just down the road. We worked alongside Stephanie from Lady of the Lens Photography. Stephanie is an absolute blast to work with and we can't wait to work with her again. Once everyone was ready, we headed to Most Holy Trinity Church for the ceremony.

After the ceremony we headed to The Hayloft, a beautiful indoor/outdoor barn venue in Rockwood, PA. This place is amazing for weddings, both ceremonies and receptions! The photo session was held at many of the rustic locations around the barn including a gorgeous field of wildflowers. Once inside the barn, it was time to party!

Thanks to Kara & Matt and their amazing families for letting us be a part of your special day. We hope you had a great time because we definitely did! Good luck in the future together!
