It’s always weird going back to where you grew up – you never know who you’ll run into. Last year, I ran into a friend of mine I knew since second grade while at the grocery store. Scott and I met in Mrs. Alloway’s class and were friends through high school. As we were catching up, I mentioned I am a photographer and he quickly mentioned he’d be getting married soon.
I was so excited to be able to shoot the wedding for he and Natalie. They had a sunny late August wedding day at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in the Pocono Mountains (we missed Hurricane Irene by about 12 hours). It was great to see a lot of old friends and be able to make a ton of great photos.
Nichole and Derek had a beautiful, hot July summer day for their wedding at the Lake House Inn on Lake Nockamixon in Perkasie, PA. The Inn is a beautiful place for a wedding with an area for the ceremony right beside the lake, a spacious ballroom, and beautiful old (but modern) Inn on the same property. I spent most of the time with the guys, and had a great time getting to know Derek, his family and groomsmen. We even got to watch the Phillies game for a few innings before the ceremony. All photos shot for my friend JDN Photography.
This weekend I took a long drive up to the Poconos to second shoot for my good friend Jon Nimerfroh. Mark and Melissa are friends of his, and he surprised them by having me come as a second shooter – and they were excited! The wedding and reception was held at Erharts Inn and Restaurant which is on Lake Wallenpaupack. It was a beautiful spot for a wedding and made Jon and my job that much easier.
Melissa’s family is from Spain, so Mark thought he’d try a little Spanish during his vows. See the photos below of the ceremony to see how it worked out.
