Hehe! I just had to post this cause it was so stinkin' cute! Our good friends Cat and Adi of Next Exit Photography, out in LA - just had a baby a few weeks back - baby Clara! She is sooo adorable! Anyway, I sent them a little baby care package, with a super cute onesie outfit. Cat took a photo of Clara in it and sent it to me - so here is Super Clara!

Angela and Kurt - May 10th

What can I say about this totally rock-a-licious wedding?!?! You may remember Angela and Kurt, from their engagement session last fall - since we had such a good time with them during that session we were really pumped up for this wedding. Especially since Angela kept telling us about all of the fun details she was going to be having. Like that fantastical color blue! Every time I looked at it during this wedding it made me think of cotton candy. The girls bouquets went with the dresses perfectly, and I just loved, loved loved the color palette!

We had some strange weather that weekend - with it pouring all day Friday, and then looking like it was going to rain all day Saturday. The Wiebner luck held out, and we didn't have any rain to ruin any of the plans. The ceremony was smooth as glass, and afterwards we went to the Ephrata Cloister for some fun pix of Angela, Kurt and their friends. In fact, just as we stepped out to start taking photos at the Cloister, the sun burst through the clouds, and the skies were blue. The first time that day! Again, the Wiebner magic came through! (Knock on wood, but we happen to have VERY good luck with weather at weddings - in the 6ish years we have been doing this, we have only had weather not go our way a handful of times!) Anyway, after some fun at the Cloister, it was off to Netherlands Inn, or should I say Historic Strasburg Inn? in Strasburg, PA. Apparently it has reverted to its original name of the Historic Strasburg Inn - fairly recently from what we found out. Angela had put on a totally glam birdcage veil for the reception, and we got a few shots of her and Kurt with it as well. We were only able to capture the beginning of the dancing before we were scheduled to leave, but we did get to see just a bit of THE MAN, DJ Freez who we found out has been doing a lot of club stuff in Miami recently. He is super talented, and if you want your reception to pulse like a dance club, he is the one to get!

We ended up doing a ton of really great portraits for Angela and Kurt's day, so those are a lot of our favorites below!

Wow, it's been awhile since I have done a fun ring shot. But here is one - Angela had those little wedding tissue packets to hand out to the guests - I snagged one and went and grabbed this shot with the rings.

A Garden Party with Bella and Scarlett

More "Just Because" Portraits
Rita

Oh my! These two were soooooo cute! Bella and Scarlett's mom, Kim, has been following our work for awhile now (a friend of hers had her engagement photos taken by us) - and she wanted to get some Wiebner photos of her own! So after one reschedule due to rain, we finally made it to Hershey Gardens. The girls had the cutest purple matching dresses, that also matched perfectly with some of the tulips. We ran around the gardens, frolicking here and there like little butterflies. (Boy, glad Joel isn't writing this or that would have sounded really weird!) We had a little bit of rain toward the end of the session, but only a few drops and the girls actually tried catching them in their tea cups! Oh yea, we had a tea party too! Check out all of the fun!

That Brock and Becca....

More "Just Because" Portraits
Rita

So I wasn't here for the conversation, but I think it went something like this...

(oh, and this was via IM)

Brock: "Hey Joel"
Joel: "Yeah Brock"
Brock: "I took some cool photos at a warehouse that is getting torn down in town."
Joel: "Oh yeah? Let me see."
Brock: "Okay, here is the link, they are on my blog."

...Joel goes to view photos on blog...

Joel: "Dude, those are sweet."
Brock: "Yeah they are cool. We should do a shoot of me and Bec there sometime."
Joel: "Oh yeah? How bout tomorrow?"
Brock: "Really? Okay, yeah sure!"


So, what's missing from this conversation? The part about asking Rita and Becca if they can do it tomorrow - oh yeah that little detail!! So Joel and Brock made these plans on Monday afternoon, and Tuesday afternoon we were off to the broken down, torn down, warehouse doing yet again some photos of two of our most boring subjects. I am being sarcastic...I am laying it on thick...I hope you get that. :)

We always love photographing these two and we usually do a springtime shoot. So this year it was impromptu, last minute and unplanned. But boy did we have fun and get some great shots! We probably could have shot there all evening, and what started out to be just a quick one hour shoot turned into 2 hours...

Oh, and if you don't remember who Brock and Becca are, check out there shoot from 2007 and 2006




We started off easy...ya know...just sittin' around in a pile of rubble...

Then we went exploring some and found these two cool walls still standing.

And one of the warehouses was still standing, but abandoned, so we explored it a little bit. This fire escape had a tree growing right up through it! It was really cool looking.

Joel brought some souvenirs home from the shoot - he found a cool antique Pepsi can, and a Tennessee license plate of all things. Watch out, wide load coming through! (Ok, that was mean, but he's my husband, he can take it!)

And of course, one last shot of Brock as we were driving back to the studio - sporting some pretty swift shades!
