Lewis Wedding | 10.8.17 | The Meadows, Hellertown, PA

I met Ian and Jamie when their youngest child Julian was only a baby. We did their family photo shoot in a random field near our house and it still to this day is one of my favorite places to shoot and that shoot stands out to me as one of my favorites of all time! They booked me based on my availability and had their wedding on a day that I was open. I can't tell you how great of an honor that is to me! It's really the greatest compliment I can receive. Their day was uniquely beautiful. Their love is so special and you can really see it in every single image of them together. Jamie looked stunning as always. Her hair was done by one of my former brides Shay and she nailed it! Overall it was a perfect day to and I'm so happy that they chose me to capture it. I can't wait to see what the future holds for Ian and Jamie!

Congrats to you both and may you continue to be blessed always. Xoxo Lg

Gross Wedding | 10.7.17 | Woodstone Country Club, Danielsville, PA

Dominique and Eric hired me based on recommendations from Eric’s sister and brother-in-law who I have been photographing their children since they were newborns!

They both are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Dominique's smile can light up a room and Eric’s is pretty nice too. I knew based on how much fun we had at their engagement session their wedding would be just as awesome and I wasn’t wrong. The reception was at Woodstone Country Club which everyone knows is one of my favorite places, not only is it close to home but it truly is a great place to have a wedding. The day went off without a hitch and we partied the night away where Eric showed me and everyone his madddd skills on the microphone and Dominique didn’t stop dancing for a moment. I love how much they love each other... it’s tangible. I’m so grateful I was able to be there to celebrate with them and their closest family and friends! I am so excited to see what the future holds for them and I hope I’ll get to capture more memories for them in the future!!!

Eric and Dominique, thank you! Xoxo Lg

Hagenberger Wedding | 9.29.17 | Filbert Bed & Breakfast, Danielsville, PA

Tara and Paul and I did not officially meet until their wedding day. We FaceTime’d for their bridal consultation and as soon as we hung up they emailed me to let us know they wanted me to shoot their wedding! The entire wedding and reception was at the very beautiful Filbert Bed and Breakfast in Danielsville, PA. I knew immediately upon meeting both of them that the day would be special. It was a small quaint ceremony and it was centered around God and how blessed they felt to have each other. Their puppy, Cooper, was a main part of the day and he was such a good boy, even dancing on the dance floor late into the evening. I felt so blessed as well to be there to capture their day and celebrate with them. The Filbert holds special meaning to me because it is where I got ready for my wedding and the owner is a good friend of my family and truly one of the nicest people on the planet, not to mention one heck of a cook!

Paul and Tara, I have no doubt in my mind you will be celebrating your love forever. I wish you nothing but my greatest wishes for happiness always! Thanks for choosing me!!! Xo Lg

Kemp Wedding | 9.16.17 | Bear Creek Mountain Resort, Macungie, PA

Tyler and Kortney are two of the sweetest people I know. They are so kind hearted and pleasant to be around. Bear Creek was awesome that day with the exception of the lantern bugs that seem to have infested all of Macungie in September. Kortney looked incredibly stunning and during their first look, it was one of the most emotional moments I’ve ever captured. Their bridal party was so fun and the two of them are up for anything including roaming the property looking for photo ops. The reception was decorated so beautifully, quite frankly very similar to how I would decorate my reception if I were getting married today. Even though the day was slightly crazy for me on my end, the bugs, dropping my camera and lens on the concrete and my assistant falling in the mud... I still wouldn’t trade anything for that day because being there to witness their vows is why I do what I do and I was honored to be part of their day. I love their photos and I love the two of them. To the Kemps, I wish you nothing but every happiness there is in this world!

Sadrovitz Wedding | 9.15.17 | Pearl S. Buck Estate, Perkasie, PA

Matt and Stephanie will always hold a special place in my heart because they’ve been at so many weddings that I have photographed it’s actually kind of ridiculous. In 2016, I was second shooting for another photographer waaaaaaaaaaaay North at a venue I’d never heard of or shot before and I walked into the reception only to find Matt and Steph sitting there as guests. They pulled me aside to say hello and to say that they remembered me from shooting their friend’s wedding in 2015. This was a Friday night wedding and I did remember them and we shared a laugh that we were so far away from the Lehigh Valley and here we were together at a wedding again. Fast forward to the next day, I get to my wedding that Saturday morning only to find the two of them again at the wedding as guests. Steph said that as soon as she gets engaged she would call me, and she did. And boy am I glad. Their wedding was so fun, Friday night in September at the Pearl S. Buck Estate in Perkasie. It was truly one of the most beautiful venues I’ve been to. I knew the wedding would be a blast because I basically knew the entire bridal party from all the weddings of their friends that I photographed and had formed such a connection with the two of them already. The wedding didn’t disappoint, beautiful weather, a little warm for my taste but no rain so I’ll take it, and so many laughs. I truly can’t wait to see what the future holds for the two of them. They are truly awesome people and I’m honored that I was there to capture the day. Xo Lg

Diefendurfer Wedding | 9.10.17 | Barnhouse Village, Bath, PA

I’ve known Jasmine for a long time from coming to my parents corner store as we were growing up. She’s a bit younger than me but we always have known each other through there. I met her for their consultation a long while before their wedding and I remember thinking how far off it seemed and how awesome it was that they were booking me so far ahead of time. She said she wanted to make sure she got me before I was booked. I got to meet Mike at their engagement session and they are super adorable together. Perfect match. 

Their wedding day was awesome. It was held at the Barnhouse Village on a lovely Sunday afternoon. I knew a lot of people at the wedding from my parents store and it was nice to be able to be there to capture their big day. Even though Mike doesn’t like to smile a lot, I did get him to give some up!!! We had a lot of fun together. They both are really awesome people and I’m so happy that they found each other. To Jasmine and Mike- I hope you guys have a lifetime of happiness and I can’t thank you enough for trusting me to shoot the biggest day of your life!!!

Koncz Wedding | 9.9.17 | Bear Creek Mountain Resort, Macungie, PA

Matt and Meredith got married at Bear Creek Resort in September, my favorite wedding month. Aside from the lantern bugs that were beginning to infest the Lehigh Valley, the day was perfect. 

The bridal party was awesome. The bride and groom were so in love and so fun and soooo up for anything! 

I loved the sky that day. It was so beautiful. Exactly as September should be. 

Matt and Meredith, I wish you nothing but happiness and I’m so grateful that I was there with you. I can’t wait to see them again at Matt’s sister’s wedding this spring!!!!

Sweeney Wedding | 8.12.17 | Peddler's Village, Cock n Bull, New Hope, PA

Allison, Ben and I had an awesome engagement session in Jim Thorpe about a year before their big day. I knew they’d be super fun to photograph and I couldn’t wait for their big day at Peddler's Village. It would be my first time shooting there and I was excited. The day itself was beautiful, albeit, extremely humid. People gathered around the gardens to watch the ceremony like they were in the presence of celebrities. But it always makes me smile how much people stop to admire a bride and their genuine wishes for happiness for the couple! 

To the Sweeneys, I hope you two have a love and fun filled life together. You’re perfect for each other and I’m so glad I was able to be there to capture your beautiful day.

Budge Wedding | 7.29.17 | Bank Street Annex, Easton, PA

Eric and Caitlin will always hold a very special place in my heart. Not because of the connection we had before the wedding but because of the trust and understanding they showed my best friend during the hardest time of her life and for the invaluable lessons I learned at their wedding itself. 

The Tuesday before their wedding, I got a phone call from one of my best friends asking me if I could shoot her wedding this Saturday because her husband passed away. It was one of the hardest phone calls I’ve ever received. Not only did my heart break for my friend, I was also thinking of “how is she even thinking clearly enough to call me and ask me right now?” I of course said I would and went straight to her. Making the call to Eric and Caitlin that night for my friend was one of the toughest calls I’ve ever had to make. I was so worried about what they would say... what if they said they didn’t want me? What if they didn’t like my work? They never batted an eyelid. They embraced me from the word go on the phone that night and haven’t stopped since.

Before the wedding, I was able to say my goodbyes and then I left to put on my brave face to shoot that wedding. Here’s the thing about weddings and being a wedding photographer. We don’t get to have a bad day. A sad day. An “ehh” day. We have to be fully present. Fully alert. Fully aware of our surroundings. Because if we’re walking around with our head in the clouds, we will miss something or could miss everything. We have to be in a place of happiness and “ON” 100% of the day. There’s no do over. We owe that to our brides and grooms to be 100% THERE on their big day. Whatever happened at home that morning, whatever has us upset or annoyed gets lost and left in the car when we walk into that hotel room because we owe that to our couples who are paying us to capture THE HAPPIEST DAY OF THEIR LIFE! 

I am so honored that Becky chose me to shoot this wedding. I thank God I wasn’t already booked and that I could be there for her when and where she needed me most. I am forever grateful to this amazing couple who welcomed me with arms wide open to capture their day. Aside from the sadness of the week leading up to the wedding, this is a wedding I am super proud of. I showed myself how strong I can be and even surprised myself by that strength. 

Caitlin looked amazingly stunning when I walked in the room for the first time. Eric looked dapper when I met up with him and the guys. I weeped during their vows and, maybe for the first time, heard every single word that was said during that ceremony. It reminds me of that quote by Frank Ocean, “When you’re happy, you enjoy the music but when you’re sad, you understand the lyrics.” Their first dance had me crying, too! More happy tears than sadness for sure. But seeing the two of them so in love and just starting the rest of their lives together and *I* was lucky enough to be there to capture it... that’s grounds for happy tears. Because of photos, they will never have to rely solely on their memories. And one day those photographs will mean more to them than any amount of money they spent on them. 

So many congrats and so much love to Eric and Caitlin for embracing everything and for the kindness you showed to my friend and I. I mean it when I say, I’ll always remember your wedding with happy thoughts because it was that day I realized how incredibly important my job is and how I want to do it as long as people will have me. So many blessings for a lifetime filled with love and happiness. 

I’ll leave this blog with a poem that was read at my grandmother’s funeral when I was 18 years old and I never forgot it. It’s named, “The Dash” by Linda Ellis. 

“I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on her casket from beginning to the end. He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth and now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth. 

For it matters not, how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash,

What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash. 

So think about this long and hard; Are there things you would like to change?

For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough to consider what is true and real and always try to understand the way other people feel. And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we have never loved before. If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile, Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while. So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash…

Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?”

Go and live well. Go and love hard. Be kind and smile so much people think you’re weird. Most of all, be happy.

Thanks for reading and stopping by.  Xo LG

Emert Wedding | 7.8.17 | Woodstone Country Club, Danielsville, PA

Lance and Emily are two amazingly sweet people who I hadn’t met until their wedding day. They live out of state but Emily grew up in the Lehigh Valley. They were surrounded by awesome family members and friends from out of town and from home. Woodstone hosted their wedding and as always, didn’t disappoint. During dinner, it began to storm pretty badly and though it included me getting a little wet, I stalked out the rainbow that graced us that night and I was able to get them under it! Always amazing. I consider these two blessed and I know they’re a perfect match for each other. I’m so grateful they chose me to capture their day and I’m excited to see what the future holds for them!!!

Munch Wedding | 7.3.17 | Woodstone Country Club, Danielsville, PA

Mike and Corey hired me only a few weeks before their wedding day. They were recommended by Woodstone and we hit it off right away. I have to say this wedding was one of my very favorites of my career! It was the Monday before the Fourth of July and it was one the most laid back and chill weddings I’ve ever been a part of. I took one of my favorite photos ever outside of their church by the cemetery and the was they love each other shows through on every photo. It’s not forced. It’s genuine. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family and their day was top notch. I absolutely love these guys and I’m so glad they chose me to shoot their wedding. I can’t wait to see them again in the future!!! Congrats to the Munches!!! Xo LG

Markert Wedding | 6.4.17 | Riverview Country Club, Easton, PA

Tim and Kerri were another rainy day of my year. I keep saying that 2017 was the rainiest year as long as I remember and especially the rainiest of my career. They were champs and took it in stride. If you want to find a ceremony venue that looks almost as good inside in case of rain as it does outside, Riverview Country Club should be one of your first choices. Although it rained, we made amazingly gorgeous photos using my clear umbrellas that I should really just have stock in. Kerri and her sister have been coming to see me for years with Kerri’s nieces, whom she absolutely adores. I do, too! It was such a special day being there with people who I knew and care for and if you think that rain stopped the party, you’d be wrong. We danced and yes I mean “we” including me, all night long! We ended with some pretty shots on the hill after the rain stopped. It was a day I was honored to be a part of and one I will never forget. Congrats to the Markerts!! Love you guys. Xo LG

Klein Wedding | 6.3.17 | Private Residence, Bangor, PA

Shane and Caroline got married on a warm summer day on their property in Bangor, PA. Any wedding I get to ride around in the back of an ATV I consider a win. No detail was left behind on their big day. The decorations to the cake, fire pit and games and one of the most gorgeous sunset locations made for an amazing day. Caroline and Shane compliment each other so well and Becky and I were so glad to be there with them to capture their day. I'm so excited to see what the future holds for them. Congrats to the Kleins.

Cummins Wedding | 5.20.17 | Blue Mountain Resort, Palmerton, PA

Brandon and Jordan are two amazing people. They have their heads on straight. They’re great parents and really awesome to be around. I knew they were good people when I met them for their engagement session and I drove alllllll the way to Jim Thorpe only to get there and park to see their shoot was in downtown Bethlehem. I called them to let them know I would be late and how sorry and silly I felt and they were super understanding and awesome about it. Fast forward to the wedding, it was nothing short of perfect. Their day itself was beautiful. Weather was on our side. Blue Mountain made for such scenic views and picturesque landscapes. Everything was perfect, there’s no better way to describe it from my point of view. I’m so glad they chose me to capture their day and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the two of them. All my best. Xo LG

Lopsonzski Wedding | 5.13.17 | Northampton Memorial Community Center

Tony and I met way back in ninth grade Spanish class where I learned his name to be Javi and I was Carmen. We laughed so much as we became friends over the years and then when he was getting married, I was so happy to hear he had met a great girl and they wanted me to shoot the wedding! Stacie is so fun and sweet with eyes to die for. She and Tony are a perfect match and even though it was a complete and utter washout on their wedding day, we made some beautiful photos by borrowing Alyssa Andrew’s studio, a fellow photographer. She was so gracious when I was trying to think ahead for what to do in case of rain. The ceremony was beautiful and the rain didn’t stop us from making the best of a beautiful day. We all had an awesome time celebrating at Northampton Community Center. It was such a great wedding surrounded by lots of high school friends and I can’t describe how happy I am that I was there to capture it! So many blessings to The Lopsonzskis!! Xo LG

Phoebe's "No More Chemo" Party | 1.21.18 | Friends of Phoebe

I met Miss Phoebe two years ago in November when we invited her to come see Santa! She was in her second month of treatment and I remember her being very shy and seemingly weak. She had a hard time walking and needed assistance to even walk up to Santa. Since then, I’ve watched her Facebook page, Friends of Phoebe, and I’ve seen that sweet little girl turn into a spunky, full of life, silly, amazingly crazy and HAPPY girl with a full head of thick brown hair! Also, she loves unicorns, rainbows, cooking and Paris!!! She’s awesome!!!

She went through 836 days of treatment to ring the bell that she’s cancer free finally on December 29th. 

I wanted to photograph her "No More Chemo" party when her mama messaged me about it because I knew it would be an incredible day and it should be captured!! 

She was surrounded by so many loved ones, new friends and old, nurses and people they’ve met along their journey! Phoebe’s mom made a beautifully emotional speech that had everyone in tears! She even had appearances by special guests Merida and Harley Quinn!

Phoebe, you are one special young lady. I’m so glad I was there with you today to celebrate! Thank you for having me!!! Xo LG

Hay Wedding | 5.12.17 | SteelStacks, Bethlehem, PA

We did Kelly & Ryan's first look with their puppy Cooper in the colonial district of downtown Bethlehem and they are some of my favorite first look photos of the year! They're local to Bethlehem so it was a special place for them. The ceremony was at Our Lady of Perpetual Help church also in Bethlehem. Their reception was at the SteelStacks in the Blast Furnace Room where we partied hard and danced the night away! I really enjoyed getting to know this couple, their family and their sweet puppy. I wish them nothing but happiness for the future and I can't wait to see them again! Xo LG

Confino Wedding | 5.6.17 | Bethany Wesleyan Church, Cherryville, PA

Adam & Jenn had such a great wedding day! We started pretty early and did their first look at Lehigh University and that is where I took one of my favorite photos ever in front of the administration building. Adam has 3 kids from a previous marriage and Jenn has 3 kids from a previous marriage but seeing them come together as one family unit is something I won't soon forget. Their bond as a family is really special. It was really awesome to see the family dynamic and be there to capture it. The reception was held in the Fellowship Hall in the Bethany Wesleyan Church. They played the infamous shoe game that had everyone laughing! With the reception ending earlier than my normal time, we still had daylight and were able to head one minute down the road to the canola field to get some romantic photos of just the two of them! It was a really awesome day and a sweet change of pace from my normal late night weddings. Congratulations Adam & Jenn~ thanks for choosing me! Xo LG  #teambarfino

Eddinger Wedding | 4.29.17 | La Massaria at Bella Vista Golf Club, Gilbertsville, PA

Erin & Michael had an absolutely perfect wedding day. The weather was great. The bridal party was fun! Their wedding day was actually the same day as my anniversary and my wedding day was very similar weather wise. The grounds at Bella Vista Golf Course were stunning. I had fun traipsing through the tall grass to get some creative shots. The whole day start to finish was perfect. Erin’s mom and dad sang a beautiful song during the ceremony that had all of us bawling our faces off. The end of the night was fun when we took the bridal party outside with sparklers! On the way home the excitement continued when I got pulled over for speeding but the awesome officer saw my tired eyes and back seat full of gear and believed me that I was “not from around here” and that I had just left the wedding up the road and let us go. Overall, amazing day. Great people. Beautiful venue. Congrats to the Eddingers! May you be so blessed together for many years!!! Xo LG
