The Manor House at Commonwealth Magical Wedding

Andy & Arthur

I can't think of a better way to end the year than with Andy and Arthur's wedding at The Manor House at Commonwealth. It was honestly such a perfect day. Now, it did look like it was going to rain, but that had no impact on the calm and happy mood.  Weddings are absolutely magical to me. I use the word magic to describe weddings 99% of the time because I'm obsessed with the concept. Magic doesn't have to be sparks flying from a wand, or gross ingredients mixed in a cauldron. It can be a feeling. A feeling that leaves your stomach doing flips and ready to do everything. It's exactly what I was feeling the second we saw Andy on Saturday.  Even more exciting? We got to experiment with a new type of wedding portraits. Since both Andy and Arthur weren't feeling a First Look, but wanted photos at the Manor House in the daylight, we tried something else! We've dubbed it the "Save the Surprise" portraits because it has all of the fun of regular portraits, but the groom never sees the bride! Yup, Arthur kept his eyes either closed, or in a different direction from Andy for their first set of portraits. We got to wander around the Manor House with the last bit of daylight AND have Arthur surprised when he saw Andy coming down the aisle. Legitimately Hannah Montana-ing with the best of both worlds.  Ohh, it was such...

A Cozy Gettysburg Engagement

Sarah & Brandon

I am super excited to share our first ever camping engagement session! We met up with Sarah and Brandon at Gettysburg National Military Park on Friday evening. The forecast had been calling for storms all day, so Sarah and I were obsessively checking the radar. Luckily for us, the weather man was incorrect because the only thing in the sky were perfect clouds. It was honestly the best evening. Even with us having some slight trouble finding an accessible battlefield, this was a wonderful night. Shawn and I were amazed by the historic beauty in Gettysburg, but what we were most looking forward to was photographing Sarah and Brandon at their campsite. Sarah has been coming to the Granite Hill Camping Resort with her family since as early as she can remember. When her and Brandon began dating, he was obviously brought in on the family tradition. It's a very special place to them, and surely one that will be special in the many years to come. I can already imagine their own children running through the fields and roasting marshmallows over the fire. It's sweet to think about what this place means to them and it's really awesome that they brought us into this sentimental spot to capture their engagement photos. Chatting more with Sarah and Brandon, it's so easy to see how well they fit together. They both love telling jokes and being goofy, which I think is the most important aspect in any relationship. If you can't...
