September 12th was another rainy day (we have been having a lot of those lately!) - and although Lauren's ceremony was moved inside (the entire event was at Riverdale Manor) - the day was beautiful and magical! (And I say magical, because one of Lauren and Eric's friends is a magician! You will see more of him later, but he helped out with some fun at the reception.) Eric and Lauren's own magic was an amazing thing. Eric had played and recorded all of the ceremony music himself, and there weren't many dry eyes in the house, including his own, as Lauren walked down the aisle.

After the ceremony, the rain let up for a bit, and we were able to get outside with the wedding party and Lauren and Eric to get a few shots on the property. Everything was glistening with rain, but it made for a cool environment to shoot in. Lauren and Eric definitely had fun! We even, *gasp* shot in a gazebo - but our take on it was a little different than your normal gazebo type stuff. :)

The reception was a huge party with one of our favorite local DJs, Matt from Occassions - these guys were dancers, and were all over the floor! Huge congrats to Lauren and Eric, and a thanks for allowing us to be there for your day. Enjoy the photos!

Duh! Just found this post that I never made from this summer!!! We went to Cape May for a few days way back in June, so here are some shots of us playing on the beach! Nothing too fancy, but it sure makes you miss summer doesn't it?!?! Enjoy these while we get some wedding blog posts ready - we got 3 fabulous weddings to blog this week! Stay tuned! By the way, these were all taken with our new point and shoot - our little underwater camera had finally taken a dump, so we bought this one on the way to vacation. It is the Olympus Stylus 1030 SW - waterproof, dustproof and wide angle! Who needs more?

The firehouse saved the day! Angela and Ryan's Wedding

September 6th we spent the day with Angela and Ryan. I am sure you are wondering what I mean by the title - it rained that day pretty darn good, and we didn't have a back up plan for wedding party and couple photos for after the ceremony. Luckily, one of Angela's bridesmaids, Erin, had a solution. Love those bridesmaids! Erin's dad is the Chief of Fire Police for Harrisburg, and she was able to get us in to the Fire House Museum for photos. It was dry, spacious, and had some rad firetrucks! We were really excited, and got some neat photos from it. We had the entire wedding party in the museum, did some shots of them on firetrucks and then spent some time with Angela and Ryan running around the museum.

So now that I explained that and you aren't wondering if I am going crazy, let me tell you about the rest of Angela and Ryan's day. First of all, we always love showing off the engagement photos from our couples - we spent some time with Angela and Ryan last fall on City Island in Harrisburg for their ENGAGEMENT SESSION oh, AND we photographed Angela's sister's wedding in 2006. (The fabulous Jessica and Jared.) So we were super excited to work with them and their family again. Despite the weather, Angela was really calm when we arrived at the Milestone Inn. We grabbed some getting ready and some portraits of Angela and jetted over to the church, which is one of our favorites - Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament on 3rd street.

After the ceremony was when we did the firehouse shots, which you heard about above, and then it was back to the Milestone for the party. And party it was! The rain stopped during the reception, allowing people to move about a bit more, and we were able to get some great sunset shots down on the river. A special surprise for Ryan during the reception was a custom made groom's cake - 007 style! Apparently Ryan is a huge fan and Angela surprised him with his very own 007 logo replica cake. It was smokin!

We were so excited to work with this family again and everyone was so nice. We felt like just another guest which is what we want! The photos below tell the story in a nutshell, check them out! Oh yeah, and that header photo up above - yeah that's me, shooting in the rain, holding an umbrella. This was just as Angela and Ryan were walking out after the ceremony - Joel thought I looked "cute" standing there among all of those umbrellas! :)


Here's Jessica helping Angela with her makeup in the mirror at the Milestone.

Just wanted to throw a little post up here quick - we are so excited, Joel's cousin Daniel is in another movie! A few years back he was in the movie, The Gridiron Gang, and now he is in another, The Express. He mainly has done football movies to date. Anyway, below is a wallpaper from The Express web site - Daniel is in it! He is all the way in the back right corner. I posted a photo below also of him with Joel and his other cousins so you know which one he is.

We are so excited for the movie to come out! If you get a chance, go see it! It looks like it is going to be a great one. :)
