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

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Glen Onoko Falls Engagement Session | Jim Thorpe, PA | Krista & Kory

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

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Northampton Memorial Community Center Wedding | Northampton, PA | 5.13.17 | Stacie & Tony

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | SteelStacks Wedding | Bethlehem, PA | 5.12.17 | Kelly & Ryan

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

Lehigh Valley Photographer | Bethany Wesleyan Church Wedding | Cherryville, PA | 5.6.17 | Jenn & Adam

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
