Sometimes engagement sessions aren’t always a walk in the park. So when Cari & Eric came to us with the idea for an awkward family photo shoot we were totally on board. Yes, those painfully stiff, uncoordinated photos from the 80s you see popping up on your news feed, that was our goal. So we met them at their house and they were prepped with blinding yellow shirts with matching ones for their pets. Their pup, Pheobe, might have stolen the show though We started outdoors, role reversing dips and photographing them doing what marriage is really all about, fixing the AC unit and taking out the trash. The ridiculousness of the shoot even got some genuine beautiful laughter photos. Next it was time to set up the studio. We unrolled an old life touch background, from where Matt & I first met, and the couple geared up in the costumes. They nailed every awkward facial expression and pose and it got the best kind of weird, but it was such a great time. I dont think we’ve laughed so much at a shoot, so thank you sooo much Cari & Eric for wanting to do something completely different. We cant wait to see whats in store for us in June at the wedding. Enjoy!
Since Matt & I moved to Ephrata in Lancaster County last year we have been waiting to get the ball rolling on Lancaster weddings. Katelyn & Zach were the perfect fit. They held their wedding at the Eden Resort, a quick ride from us. We started out with Katelyn, one of THE most chill brides ever, she even wore simple sparkly Toms on her feet. Her and her ladies were all super sweet. We then caught up with Zach and his guys at his child hood home just down the road. They were married at a church close by and then it was back to The Eden. The venue has a huge reception site, with tons of natural light and strung lights on the ceiling, we were impressed. With winter still lingering, we took the couple around the inside of The Eden and they were a blast. Thank you so much you two for being tremendously easy to work with! Enjoy!
