Leah & Josh: The Start of Friday

Lancaster, Pennsylvania

I met Josh and Leah in Switzerland a few years ago and it has been such an privilege watching their relationship grow. Leah and Josh had a wedding extravaganza weekend! I was so thrilled to fly over to Pennsylvania for the weekend and shoot their wedding! Lancaster is an adorable town, with quant quirks, charm and even home to the Amish! It was kind of like being in another world and I enjoyed the adventure of experiencing a different part of the States. On Friday night they had a very large reception full of family and friends. Then on Sunday they held their actual wedding ceremony followed by a desert reception. Josh is originally from England, so a large amount of his family flew in from Europe, so it was fun to see the diversity and new traditions that come a long with that! Because both are world travelers and lovers of the nations, their wedding encompassed so many unique characteristics from their travels and experiences.

I will probably go on post overload with this wedding – such incredible people, venue and beauty! So here’s to a few weeks of posts on the Edwards Wedding! Josh and Leah both got ready at the Lancaster Arts Hotel, which was such a fun and creative venue with great backdrops and lighting. I also was able to have the privilege to have my dear friend, Marisa Albrecht second shoot with me! Marisa and I traveled around parts of the world together, so it was fun to be back in action with her. Below are pictures of the two getting ready in the hotel and their first look.

Cullinane Maternity

Vashon, WA

Aly and DJ are expecting a little girl mid-April! This precious baby girl will be named Kennedy Rae. I am so excited to meet her once she is here and hope to do some newborn shots! We planned this photo shoot on Presidents Day this last week. I was nervous we were going to have to re-schedule because the weather was so horrible! The day before was very stormy and poured all day! Yet as the morning came, we had a window of time where it cleared out for some cold, but clear weather! So we ventured out on the beautiful winter beaches of Vashon Island where our family beach homes are located. Isn’t Aly a hot mama?!
