I really enjoyed capturing Adam + Kristin’s wedding this past December, and it wasn’t just because it was the most unseasonably warm December day I can remember, but because I’m lucky to count these two super-cool individuals as friends. Adam + Kristin put together such a warm and cozy wedding experience for all of their friends and families. You could tell they both cared a lot about their guests having a great time and walking away remembering their wedding day. There were moments that I looked around and thought I had walked in to a bar somewhere in the Shire on middle-earth on the set of Lord of the Rings. See for yourself in the images below but it was all designed and executed so well and it matched the couple’s taste and personality perfectly. Below are MANY of my favorite moments from their wedding day. I couldn’t narrow it down any further so I just included all 190 of my favorites Enjoy!

I had such a fun time working with Brandon + Tara and their entire bridal party and family on their wedding day. Sometimes you get couples that are super relaxed on their wedding day and just enjoy the day for what it is – the day they marry their best friend. This is how it was with these two. It was such a beautiful October day and the venue couldn’t have been more perfect. Held at a family friend’s property at Willowbrook Farm in Malvern, Brandon + Tara’s wedding truly felt like it was out of a storybook. These two are the most caring and genuine people, you can see it in how they interact with one another but even more importantly in how they interact with their friends and families and even those that worked for them on their wedding day to make it a success. I really hope the two of you enjoy your wedding photos as much as I enjoyed capturing every moment. Thanks for giving me a front seat to one of the most important day in your lives. Here are some of my favorite moments from your day:

I was so honored to capture Jeremy + Audrey’s wedding because I’ve known Jeremy for a number of years now. We met because he was a teacher and colleague at the school my dad was a principal at here in Lancaster. Lauren and I met Jeremy when we first got married as we would always be at Happy Hour together at the Lancaster Brewing Company on Fridays. Over time we got to know him a little better and he even spent a holiday or two with the entire Smith clan (poor guy). I’ve always enjoyed spending time with Jeremy because he is always willing to talk about just about anything with you and he’s got such a great sense of humor. Lauren and I were so excited for him when we found out he got engaged and we were even more excited to finally meet his fiance, Audrey. She and Jeremy are the perfect match for one another. When Jeremy and Audrey came over to our house to talk about their wedding weekend with us we ended up spending hours with them just catching up with Jeremy and getting to know Audrey. I could tell just from the way they interacted that they really “get” one another and compliment one another so well.
Their wedding weekend was held at the Harbourtowne Resort in St. Michaels, MD. It was the same weekend that Hurricane Joaquin was moving through so all of the festivities had to be moved indoors. Audrey and Jeremy kept positive about it all and braved some seriously ferocious wind to take some photos outside. There were only a few small pockets of space outside where there was little to no wind so we did the best that we could. The red umbrella in the images was inspired by Jeremy’s love for the local Lancaster artist, Liz Hess, who uses a red umbrella as a focal point in her paintings. It was such a great weekend and I truly appreciated the opportunity to capture these moments. Here are some of my favorite moments:
