PREVIEW // Lancaster PA wedding: Dennis & Evangeline

Months ago he skyped from NYC, she skyped from the Philippines, 
and I skyped from Southern MD ... all leading to today's glorious wedding.
He didn't know he had feeling for her until she had already committed to doing mission work in the Philippines, but once the idea of love was on the table ... that was the only option really left.

Praise the Lord for seeing these sweetheart through years of solid friendship, grueling months of  a long distance relationship that stretched across oceans & continents, and wedding planning that happened from states & countries away. Friends, you made it!!

Dennis & Evangeline, 
Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing me the great gift of being part of your lives.
I'm having a hard time putting into words how blessed I have been in the short time I've gotten to know you two. And though we only officially met today, the impact you two have had on me will not soon fade.

Your hearts of gold have encouraged me to get better at loving people,  and living more purposefully for Christ. For that, a million thanks. I can't wait to share more from your big day & congrats Mr & Mrs. Chow!!

 Greetings from a cozy little airbnb here in Pennsylvania!

Seven years of "together" + a Disney Cruise proposal you know your in for a sweet time. 

Jason and Jessica recently contacted me with beautiful Oatlands Plantation in mind for their engagement shoots, little did they know that I've been itching to shoot their for years now. Not only did they make my photos dreams come true, their soft-spoken, gentle spirits were a breath of fresh air.

Preview // Belmont Manor, MD Wedding: Joe & Ashley

Nothing, I mean absolutely nothing could dampen today's fun & crazy wedding.

Joe & Ashley your bubbly, giggly love got us all through the heat, the rain, the sun, the showers, the wind & the tornado warning. Thank you for sharing your love & your story with the rest of us and for allowing Tim and I to take a small part in your day. 

I'm so happy for you both & I'm grateful that your college love turned into this now, husband & wife love. And that our college friendship (more so Tim's) brought us all under one big tent to celebrate this newest chapter of your story. 

Thank you for being amazingly fun & tooth-achy sweet.
