Barnes Family | Jim Thorpe, PA | Train Station & Colored Powder Session | Outdoor On-Location Family Session

When this mama told me what she had planned, knowing her and her amazing kids... I KNEW it would be FANTASTIC!!!! We might have gotten caught in the rain walking to the car and got stuck in the storm for the whole way home but man was it worth it!!! This session was soooooo much fun- I couldn't wait to blog it for you all to see! Jim Thorpe is one of my favorite locations- the train station, my favorite teal door and just an amazing town... with a super fun ending to the session and my first time capturing anything like it- I just know you will be able to FEEL the fun we had just by seeing these photos!

Cooperman Family | Nazareth Borough Park | Nazareth, PA | Lifestyle Family Park Session

Amazing session with these kiddos at the Nazareth Borough Park in Nazareth, PA. A lifestyle session at a park or fun location is a great way to capture precious moments while your children enjoy themselves... without having to always be pose-y, but we caught a good combo of both! We also celebrated some special shots for Alanna's 2nd Elmo birthday and Sarah's 10th donut themed birthday. They had a blast! Sooo many fun ones even I want to print them all!!! Xo Lg

Modesto Wedding | 5.5.18 | The Inn At Pocono Manor Resort & Spa, Pocono Manor, PA

I had such a great time with John and Chelsea for their big day. I had never been to the Inn at Pocono Manor before and let me tell you, their wedding did not disappoint. It's no secret that weddings with bands are my absolute favorite!!! No disrespect to my DJ buddies, but when there is a band at a wedding it already moves up on my list as an awesome day. Every wedding I've ever shot that had had a band, the people are there to party and have a good time!!! John and Chelsea did their first look and got all of their photos done prior to the ceremony which was held at one of my favorite churches in Easton, College Hill Presbyterian. We made a pitstop in downtown Easton to do some bridal party photos at the Bank Street Alley, which is also another favorite spot of mine. It was a gorgeous wedding day with really fun people and a couple very much in love. I am so grateful that I met these two and I'm so excited to see what the future holds for them. To show how romantic they are... they had actually planned a getaway to the Inn at Pocono Manor just by chance and John had proposed the night before they left for their getaway. When they got there (excited and giggly about being engaged), John saw a wedding brochure for the Manor and said “Hey, we could get married here!”. Chelsea just laughed initially and then later when they were researching venues they came back to the Manor and really loved it... low and behold.... that's where we were celebrating! John and Chelsea, I am so grateful I was able to be there with you on your big day. Thanks for choosing me. Blessings. Lori

Rory P. Floral Cake Smash | First Birthday Session

Every now and then I get a session that tugs on my heart strings. Something about the baby, their look and personality combo or the family and the history we have together. Rory is the third cake smash for this family and mom says it's the last! I love everything floral right now so I'm in love with this floral cake smash in the studio. Cake smashes are so fun and even if the babe doesn't eat all the cake or even barely takes a lick, it's still adorable and part of the first year that's so fun to capture. Xo Lg

Tonya & Eric | Engagement Session | Jacobsburg State Park | Nazareth, PA

Eric and Tonya were so fun together for their engagement photo shoot at Jacobsburg State Park in Nazareth, PA. When I initially met with Tonya to book the wedding, Eric was working, so it was my first time meeting him and what a pleasure to see them together. They are so natural with each other and so seriously in love it's kind of ridiculous. I loved that they weren't afraid to get in the water and get wet and be super silly with each other when the time was right! I'm very much looking forward to their wedding next year at Hanover Grand Ballroom. Xo Lg

Farry Wedding | 4.21.18 | Northampton Community Center, Northampton, PA

April 21st was a gorgeous day for a wedding. The trees hadn't bloomed much yet, but the weather was gorgeous and the company was awesome. Love was in the air. Courtney and I have known each other forever since our days of junior bowling leagues. She's always been a kind spirit with a great personality. She and Joey have a special love that's totally "them" and it's really beautiful to see. They love their little guy with all they've got and they are amazing parents. 

The ceremony was at Holy Family Church in Nazareth. It was my first time at the church and it was stunning with floor to Ceiling stained glass. We went to the Indian Tower for photos after the ceremony and then also to the Kreidersville Covered Bridge. I always love shooting receptions at the Northampton Community Center because they have amazing meals that never disappoint and the staff is the most accommodating. Overall, it was a perfect day. I want to wish Joey and Courtney a lifetime of happiness! I am honored that I was there to witness day one. Blessings. Xo Lg

Krista & Kory | Engagement Session | Jim Thorpe, PA

Amazing early morning after a wedding with my bride and groom Krista and Kory for May of 2019. They were in town for Krista's birthday so thankfully the rain held off and we ended up with a gorgeous morning for pictures and a few puddles for reflection shots! They braved the water at Glen Onoko falls and we made beautiful photos celebrating their engagement. Jim Thorpe in general is such a great spot for an engagement session, there's so many options and variety to get in just a small amount of time. So excited for this wedding next year at Capriotti's in McAdoo, PA!! Thanks for choosing me, guys!  Xo Lg

Maynard Wedding | 4.14.18 | Historic Hotel Bethlehem, Bethlehem, PA

On February 3, 2018, I was kickboxing on a Saturday morning and as I was doing double roundhouse kicks to a freestanding bag, my knee bent in when I landed and I saw stars as my mind went black. As soon as the initial screaming pain went away and I started to make my way out of the karate dojo… my mind immediately went to April 14, 2018 where I knew I had to be ready to photograph my first wedding of the year. At the point of when I hurt myself, I did not know I had torn my ACL, but two days later I found out that I had. I got an MRI that same day on Monday and I got scheduled with my surgeon to have a consultation, where he told me they like to wait at least one month to do the surgery. The reason for that is so that I can do four weeks of pre-physical therapy to get ready for the surgery. When he told me that, my heart sank and I knew that would not work for me. I said to my doctor, "What do I need to be able to do before surgery?" and he replied that my knee needs to have full range of motion before he will operate on me. So we set the surgery date for February 22 and I told him that I promise nobody will work harder to get ready for February 22 than I will. On February 20, I went for my pre-surgery consultation with my surgeon and he was very impressed with my progress. I spent at least 2 to 3 hours every day at the gym getting my muscles as strong as I could before surgery. On February 22, my surgery went well and I immediately started physical therapy again the next day.  I basically went every single day except for Sundays for six weeks. My therapist was very impressed with my determination and I told him that all I needed to do was be ready for April 14. Literally every single moment of the last seven weeks was gearing up for this wedding because I knew I had to be on my feet for 12 hours and as I've mentioned before in my blogs, there's no "kind of being present". You have to be 100% "ON" on the wedding day and I didn't want my knee to have my mind in another place. The day of the wedding I was seven weeks and two days past surgery and I was pretty freaking proud that my knee held up the whole day without any trouble. I did take a break during dinner to ice it for 30 minutes, which I think helped as well! OK enough backstory- let me tell you about the amazing wedding day! 

So Joel and Lauren found me through Lauren's brother and sister-in-law's wedding, Matt and Meredith, I shot last fall at Bear Creek. We did their engagement shoot and I immediately fell love with them. I could tell they were so sweet together and so in love! I also always feel like I have a major emotional connection with the first bride and groom of the year, because the build up is so big to get to that moment and then with this year and everything that went on, I feel like that was multiplied by 100. But the excitement and anticipation didn't disappoint and the wedding was amazing.

The weather was unseasonably warm, we've had rain both before and rain after the wedding with freezing cold temperatures and in the 30s but on their wedding day it was almost 80° with a beautiful spring breeze that felt beautiful. When I got there in the morning, the guys were having a good time in the room down the hall at the Hotel Bethlehem and the girls were in the bridal suite finishing up hair and makeup. Lauren looked gorgeous, as did all the girls, and the color of the dresses were dusty pink, which is my favorite color right now, so they all looked gorgeous. I drove on the limo with the girls, as my second shooter met me at the ceremony. Their puppies surprised everyone by arriving at the ceremony after the service! After church, we headed back to the Hotel Bethlehem to do photos in the colonial district down below the hotel and oh my goodness it was incredible. The light, the people... everything was perfect! 

We took them outside for some fun night shots and let them take a breather. Then they came in and danced the night away! It literally could not have been a more perfect day. At the end of the night, Joel and Lauren came up to us and told us how much it meant for them that we were there. Lauren was in tears as she hugged me and said she could not have gotten through the day without me. That hug and those words combined with the emotion I felt, made every single moment of the last two months worth it! 

As a small business owner, we don't get sick days. When we do, it affects a lot of people. I knew there was no way I wouldn't be shooting that wedding, so whatever that meant for me to work as hard as I could to get there, that was what it was. I am so glad and so honored that I was with you guys to capture your day. I hope you'll always look at these photos and remember how happy that day was for you. 

Joel and Lauren, I hope God will continue to bless your lives and if you decide to have little babies, remember I'm a newborn photographer as well! Xo Lg

Nicholas Wedding | 10.28.17 | SteelStacks, Bethlehem, PA

William and Amanda and I met for the first time at their bridal consultation and I immediately knew I would love them right off the bat. They were so fun and immediately I could tell they were perfect for each other. Amanda works at the Steel Stacks and that was where the ceremony and reception was held. I photographed receptions there before but never a ceremony. They got married outside during a Penn State game and the entire crowd went crazy when Amanda came walking out of the doors to come see Will at the altar. It was something I really will never forget. As I'm sure nobody that was there will, either. They chose to do a first look and we did that on the top floor balcony and even though it wasn't part of the plan, it turned out to be a beautiful spot. I always say you have to roll with the punches on the wedding day- stuff might not always go according to plan and things were running behind that day, so we changed the plan and we made it work for them. In the end, all that matters is that they were married and that they have their memories of the best day of their life! 

I know you two will have a lifetime of happiness and I'm so excited to see what the future brings for you- congrats to William and Amanda!!! Xo Lg

Dziedzic Wedding | 10.21.17 | Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort, Delaware, PA

Justin and Ashley are two very awesome people who are up for a good time. When I got to their wedding that morning they were all a little tired from having a good time the night before but that didn't stop them from looking amazing and us making gorgeous photos. It was unseasonably warm at their ceremony and the amount of gnats that I had to edit out of the photos was something I don't really want to think about again! The venue is one of my favorite places shoot because it's so gorgeous. I believe that was my fourth ceremony I shot under that tree and it always takes my breath away when you see the photos and see how beautiful it is looking at the Delaware River. Even though it was warm and there were so many gnats in the end all that matters is that two people who love each other very much got married and I was there to witness it. I say this all the time but I find that such an honor to be able to capture and document.  

Ashley and Justin, I wish you all of life happiness and I hope that your blessings will continue to multiply. Thank you for choosing me to capture day. Xo Lg

Moser Wedding | 10.14.17 | Olde Homestead Golf Club, New Tripoli, PA

Melissa and Dan had an absolutely gorgeous wedding day. The colors of fall were present and the weather was on their side. It was my first time shooting at Olde Homestead Golf Club and I loved it. I loved it so much I actually made the venue a photo album because they were so wonderful to work with and I would love to work there again. Melissa is one of those brides that is so sweet, loves her photos and isn't afraid to let me know! Dan is a quiet type, but also just as sweet.  The two of them have a beautiful emotional connection and you can tell they are so in love. They are just happy to be around each other. Their wedding day was special because it was the two of them and they were surrounded by amazing family and friends. We had a lot of laughter and a lot of fun! The details were amazing so make sure you check out the vendor list below and I highly recommend Olde Homestead Golf Club, their staff and grounds were really something special! Ever After Studio also helped to capture the beautiful colors of fall and their love- you might want to check out their wedding trailer here

Congrats to Dan and Melissa! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your day!! Xo Lg

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
