Lehigh Valley Photographer | Capriotti's Palazzo & Catering Wedding | McAdoo, PA | 5.18.19 | Krista & Kory

Krista and Kory had the absolute perfect wedding day, all around really, but specifically weather wise. Blue skies were few and far between last year, so for my first wedding of the year to be perfect weather, I was thrilled. Helps that the couple are two of the sweetest people ever. Hair and makeup team slayed and the girls all looked fabulous even after all that dancing!

The wedding itself was held at Immaculate Conception Church. Gorgeous cathedral in Jim Thorpe PA. After church we headed a few miles up the road to Mauch Chunk Lake for their formal photos! The blue sky was perfection!

Reception was held at Capriotti’s Palazzo & Catering in McAdoo PA. I know when I have a Capriotti’s wedding that it’s going to be a well-run, smooth reception for me with a bonus of excellent food and service. I’m excited that I finally got to experience their new Capella building where Krista and Kory had their cocktail hour.

Overall this day rocked. A perfect start to 2019 wedding season. I’m excited to finalize this gallery and allow them to relive the entire day from my eyes. Mr. And Mrs. Lopata, I wish you a lifetime of happy tears and belly laughs ❤️ Thanks for allowing me to capture your day. Xo Lg

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Capriotti's Palazzo & Catering Wedding | McAdoo, PA | 9.15.18 | Nicole & Tom

Tom and Nicole are about as sweet as they come. One of the few weddings of 2018 that didn't have rain AND had a beautiful sunset that I stalked so hard to be sure I didn't miss it. It was a beautifully emotional day and I was grateful to be able to there to capture it. I will never forget how gorgeous the flowers inside of the church were. I've never really been the biggest flower fan but after seeing the way the church looked, I'm sold. Capriotti's Palazzo is one of my favorite venues to shoot north of the Lehigh Valley! Tucked away and so fresh, clean and great food! I warned these two and their limo driver that if I saw any pretty photo ops on the way to their reception, that we should pull over, grab the flowers and hop off the bus and sure enough, those yellow and white “weeds” were calling my name. We did some poses in the flowers and and then I made them walk down the middle of the road which ended up being some of my favorite shots from their formals! All around it was a beautiful day and an amazing wedding. To Tom and Nicole- I wish you all the best and a lifetime of happiness! Xo Lg

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Olde Homestead Golf Club Wedding | New Tripoli, PA | 9.8.18 | Megan & Will

Will and Megan are just the cutest couple ever!!  Megan is so tiny but her personality is larger than life. Will is as quiet as a church mouse and I can tell he’s completely smitten with his wife. I had fun with them at their engagement session so I knew that their wedding would be a blast. The girls were so fun when I got there and so eager to help get things in order. My former bride Shayanne from Hairitage Salon did hair and makeup and of course did a fabulous job. The girls makeup and hair lasted all night. I’ve mentioned that I’m sick of the rain and this wedding was no exception!  Even though it rained for entire portrait session outside at Olde Homestead Golf Club, we didn’t let that stop us and we made the most beautiful photos. Thankfully my bride and groom were “go with the flow” type of people and embraced the drizzle and made the most of it! I am so happy that I got to be there to celebrate with these two as they start their life together. As always Olde Homestead nailed it with their take on rustic elegance. The food was outstanding and I’ve been craving the roasted veggies and mac and cheese ever since. The church up the street was having a bonfire that night, so we got some cool photos on top of the hill with the fire behind which made for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and certainly something I’ve never seen at a wedding before! To Megan and Will, I wish you the best of everything life has to offer- thank you for letting me be there at the beginning! Xo Lg

Lehigh Valley Photographer | The Architect’s Golf Club Wedding | Lopatcong, NJ | 9.2.18 | Taylor & Nick

Nick and Taylor are so adorable it’s kind of ridiculous. Taylor has one of those faces that I could just photograph for days upon days. Taylor’s dress seemed like it was made just for her! There was some rain in the forecast for this wedding day, but it held off and we had the most perfect cloudy awesomeness for their first look and portraits. Once the ceremony came time to start, the sun had come out and the humidity really picked up. However, there was no chance anyone was complaining because we got to do the wedding outside which is what everybody wanted! The Architect’s Golf Club has a great spot for outdoor ceremonies and we were under the tent outside for the reception too, which turned out to be absolutely perfect. The humidity and heat didn’t stop us from having an amazing time and I loved getting lots of pictures of people standing in front of the fan to cool off. We ended the night with the most gorgeous cotton candy sunset and I got a minute to talk with the bride and groom to tell them how much I enjoyed their day! To the Williams’, I wish you nothing but happiness and I can’t wait to see what life has to offer for you!!! Thanks for choosing me to spend your day with! Xo Lg

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Bear Creek Mountain Resort Wedding | Macungie, PA | 8.31.18 | Angela & Ryan

Last fall I had an amazing session with Angela and Ryan for their engagement, so I knew their wedding would be absolutely perfect as well. This was one of the many many many wet rainy wedding days that I’ve had this year, but as per usual, we did not let the rain stop us from making great portraits. These two people are both so sweet and they both rolled with the punches that the weather threw at them! Bear Creek has lots of covered options for photos so we embraced it and then went in the rain for a little bit as well because if it rains on your wedding day you have to have some pretty umbrella pictures! I know these two are going to have a wonderful, long and happy marriage and I’m excited to see what the future holds for them! Ryan and Angela I hope you know how much I loved your day and I can’t thank you enough for choosing me to capture it! Xo Lg

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Blue Mountain Resort Wedding | Palmerton, PA | 8.11.18 | Jena & John

Jena and John had a very unique wedding day. First of all, it rained so hard they were forced to have their ceremony inside. Thankfully, Blue Mountain has an amazing indoor option. But the rain stopped right before the ceremony and we started drying off the chairs to only have it continue to rain more. The skies were blue all around us except right above the ceremony site. So strange. Right after the ceremony started inside, the rain stopped and the sun began to peek through. So we took advantage of the nice weather and ran outside and got as many pictures as we could before the rain started again.

Jena and the girls were so sweet together and we had a lot of fun during getting ready. Becky had fun with the guys, too! I think overall, it was a fun day and they certainly didn’t let the rain ruin that.

Jena’s dress was gorgeous and soooo her! John said he hit the lottery with her but I think they both are pretty lucky to have one another.

I hope you guys will remember this day forever. I hope you can always look back on these photos and remember it vividly.

Blessings to last a lifetime.

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Silver Birches Wedding | Hawley, PA | 7.14.18 | Dayna & Alex

Alex and Dayna. Everything about their wedding was amazing, they have a love for each other that shows in every touch. Dayna has been a bridesmaid in several weddings that I’ve photographed over the years and as soon as she got engaged she came to find me. She is one of the most pleasant and nicest people you will ever meet. Alex is her perfect compliment. They’ve been together forever and I know they always will be.  They love their pups and their family is number one. They had a beautiful wedding day at Silver Birches and JUST as soon as dinner service started, it began to rain! But we were able to get ceremony and all of our photos in beforehand! I wish you guy nothing but love and happiness! I have no doubt life will be great for you! Thanks for stopping by. LG

Lehigh Valley Photographer | 6.15.18 | Folino Estate Vineyard & Winery Wedding | Kutztown, PA | 6.15.18 | Carissa & Russell

Russell and Carissa had probably the most gorgeous wedding day of the year so far. I always say that Friday weddings are a great time because people have off all weekend and they’re not afraid to let loose and have a good time. Their wedding was no exception. Folino Estate does such a beautiful job with their weddings. There’s such a sense of rustic elegance that you get when you have a wedding there. We have beautiful blue sky and puffy clouds for their day which is my favorite type of sky for a wedding day and I made sure they knew that! Russell and Carissa are meant to be I have no doubt. Their sweet personalities are the perfect complement to each other and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. Thank you for trusting me with your day you guys. I hope you will look back at the photos forever with fond memories. Xo Lg

So Courtney and I have known each other a long time, since she's besties with my little sister. We've been to the beach together more than once and she has always been such a pleasant and positive influence around my kids. 

When she and Dan got engaged and she asked me to photograph their wedding, I was thrilled! Not only because it was her and I was so happy I could be there to see her be married, it was at Woodstone Country Club which I LOVE to work at! 

Dan and Court are the cutest!!! They love each other so much and although Dan was somewhat quiet through the engagement session and other meetings we've been together, I saw him relaxed and having a blast with his bride. 

Just as we finished up portraits on the golf course, the sky opened up just before we made it back to the lodge on our golf carts and it poured. It was a blessing from above that I got to finish up all the photos before the sky opened up!! 

As always, the food at Woodstone was awesome and DJ Freddie kept the party hoppin' all night! The bridal party was so fun and even "Iced" the one groomsman during intros... by the way, I realized I was old when last year my bride told me her groom was going to be "Iced" and I had absolutely no idea what that meant and the bridal party had to tell me.

Courtney and Dan, I wish every happiness this life has to offer and I look forward to seeing what the future brings for you.  xoLG

Lehigh Valley Photographer | SteelStacks Wedding | Bethlehem, PA | 10.28.17 | Amanda & William

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Olde Homestead Golf Club Wedding | New Tripoli, PA | 10.14.17 | Melissa & Dan

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Barnhouse Village Wedding | Bath, PA | 9.10.17 | Jasmine & Mike

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!!! 

Blessings. Xo Lg

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Bank Street Annex Wedding | Easton, PA | 7.29.17 | Caitlin & Eric

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Blue Mountain Resort Wedding | Palmerton, PA | 5.20.17 | Jordan & Brandon

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
