For Erynne & George, we last got together for an engagement session on a cold fall morning at Erynne’s alma mater, St. Francis College in Loretto, PA. In spite of us all about freezing, I had a wonderful time with them. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to see them again on their wedding day.
During her planning, Erynne sent me a fantastic inspiration board which gave me a little peak into what to expect for their wedding day…this was a fantastic thing to get – I love getting a feel for what the couple has in mind for their wedding.
The day started off with Erynne getting ready at the lovely Cameron Estate in Marietta, PA…truly a beautiful location. We had to deal with a bit of drizzle throughout the day, but everybody just took it in stride.
Love the image with Erynne having her makeup applied – if you look to the right, you can make out her dress hanging in the background just waiting. And, I loved her sweet Stuart Weitzman shoes. It seems that many of my brides wear the same shoe size as me…I think it’s so that they can torture me more was I wear my super practical Danskos.
Loved the variety of flowers and berries used in Erynne’s bouquet. Crystals from Erynne’s grandmother’s necklace were incorporated into her bouquet and with the gardenias, it smelled absolutely amazing. My macro lens is wonderful for getting the close up details of the flowers..they would be fantastic printed up as square canvas to decorate an area.
With the photo on the left, I turned away from everyone and shot through the mirror to create a bit of a frame to draw your eye in – you can just feel the Erynne’s anticipation rising as finishing touches are completed on her dress. When Erynne was facing away from the windows, the room was very dim, so to light her, I believe that my assistant was holding off camera lighting in that photo.
Love big, beautiful churches with balconies.
During ceremonies – small moments are easily forgotten…the soft loving touch on the back, the glances as the officiant is talking…these are things that just take you back to the day immediately and help rekindle all the feelings.
The drizzle continued throughout the day, but we were able to get out for just a few minutes to get a few pictures with the Rolls Royce before it left for the day. The grounds are so beautiful at Cameron Estate – wish that we could have gone out to get some additional photos.
Father and daughter during their dance together…really, words would just take from the moments.
The bakery did a fantastic job in matching the theme of the invitations with the cake decorations. Lovely!
