A gorgeous couple and great friends – Jonathan & Anna

post by nat

Anna contacted us a few weeks ago to ask if we would take some time to do a mini photo session for her and Jonathan. Over the past couple of years we have become friends and have watched them walk this challenging and beautiful walk we call marriage. They have three lovely daughters and have had photo shoots for the whole family, but not just the two of them. So, in celebration of a new chapter to their journey I present to you Anna & Jonathan.

Cork Factory Hotel Wedding – Jessica & Mike

post by nat

Jessica and Mike came to Lancaster and fell in love with the Cork Factory Hotel for their wedding. Shortly after they found us and we have had a blast getting to know them on this journey. Last fall we walked through the city for their engagement session, this fall we watched them say I Do and got the privilege of capturing their moments :)

Cornwall United Methodist & Inn at Leola Village Wedding – Beth & Cri

post by nat

Beth and Cri got married on a lovely fall day. The colors were just perfect and even though the forecast didn’t look promising, they had a wonderful day and the sun even came out to say hello when they arrived at their reception.

These two are so sweet with one another, it was a joy to be a part of their wedding! We started the day at Beth’s parents house where the girls got ready and we loved it so much we asked the guys to meet us there for the First Look and pictures with the bridal party. Their ceremony was at Cornwall United Methodist Church, and then it was a relaxing ride to the Inn at Leola Village for their reception. We arrived just as the sun was making it’s appearance and we had enough time to steal them away for a few more pics of just the two of them.

After all of the formalities were done, Beth and Cri danced, ate cake and laughed the night away with their guests. It was a lovely wedding for a truly lovely couple.
