HEY there everyone! 

Happy Mid-summer :) Shakespeare's fave.

We will be out of the office from July 21-25.

Please call our cell in case of emergency (emergencies like changing your wedding date- not what type of waterproof mascara you should use on your big day :)

AND if you have been wondering why the blog has been so "quiet" it's because all the noise is over at our Facebook page, kids!!! Check it it out, like us and stayed tuned for weekly updates!

HI Everyone!

It has been a long (and pretty rough) recovery but I am back in the saddle and wedding season has begun. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and prayers, as I continue to progress.



We are starting our Mother's Day Print Sale TODAY and it will run until May 1.

Every 5x7 or 8x10 (gift size prints) are order one and receive a duplicate print free.

Remember, the deadline for Mother's Day delivery is May 1.






Hi Everyone,

As most of our clients know, Kris broke her leg and ankle, and had to have reconstructive surgery. She is still recovering, but is working on as much as she can from home.


We appreciate everyone's well wishes and patience during this time, and look forward to getting back to a normal schedule.


Our Best,


John & Kris

Ashley & Jasen- Modern Chic Lancaster Country Club Wedding

We had the incredible honor of photographing Ashley and Jasen's chic Lancaster Wedding this fall. Ashley is a dear friend of Martine Cajas (House of Clarendon, and Dream Weddings), so we knew it would be an incredible event!

Their color scheme of silver, purple, white, and black was brought to life with amazing lighting and event decor by Shumaker PDT, and their five tier cake crafted by House of Clarendon was the highlight of the breathtaking Lancaster Country Club ballroom. DJ Freeze kept the party moving- what an amazing group of dancers!

Take a look at their amazing day:


Bigs Hugs to everyone who made this day so amazing- especially Ashley and Jasen!

Noelle and John's gorgeous wedding, and reception at The Hershey Country Club was a feast of color and stunning accents. From the amazing color scheme of purples and pinks, to the breathtaking orthodox ceremony, their wedding was the perfect mix of traditional and modern!

The flowers by All Things Beautiful literally knocked our socks off- the orchid mix was so unique and drool- worthy. Mixed-up Productions kept the guests bopping, and Shumaker PDT lit the venue with purple and white tones that really popped the decor. Noelle worked so incredibly hard on their candy bar and it really paid off- hand-dipped pretzel sticks and all! :)

It was a blast working with our other favorites again- Lavon Studios, and Verve Hair Studio, and Light-Hearted Events as well.

Enjoy some of our faves:

We loved capturing your day, guys!! It was so amazing- and we looove our photo booth pics with Noelle- they are on our fridge :)

Stacy and Edwin's Urban Place wedding was one we will always remember- such an amazing crew! Between the super laid-back bridal party, and all-star vendor team, the results were to die for!

Stacy looked FLAWLESS- thanks to amazing genes- Verve Hair Studio, and Carmina Cristina, Make-up Artist! Stacy reminds me of January Jones from Mad Men - with a modern twist ;)

The flowers blew us all away- All Things Beautiful combined special order lilies from Europe with callas and the look was stunning!! Designs by Renee rocked the incredible stationary (looove the invites!!), Lavon Films captured the emotions, and Planned Perfection ensured the day ran smooth and seamless. Special Occasions brought the look together with their exquisite linens, and Occassions' Matt Cleveland kept the party rolling. House of Clarendon's cake accented by Shumaker PDT's lighting brought everything together - it was a Pink-lovers dream!

Here are some favorites from Stacy & Edwin's Day:

Big Hugs, Stacy & Ed!!! We wish you both the best!!

When we met Jenn and Adam, it was love at first wedding. As many know, I (Kris) am a HUGE Breakfast at Tiffany's fan/collector, and when Jenn told us her wedding theme would be the timeless classic, I almost fell off the velvet couch! John just smiled, knowing this would be one of my favorite weddings of all time. In true Breakfast at Tiffany's style, it poured rain all day, which actually turned out to be some of our favorite shots- that "Central Park in the rain feel" right in Downtown York. Jenn's parents had their reception at The Yorktowne Hotel when they got married, so it was the perfect fit for their nostalgic city backdrop.

It's always amazing to work with York's premier vendors as well:

Persnickety Invitation Studio

The Yorktowne Hotel

Providence Divine Cakes

Events Done Bright

We had the most incredible time capturing Jenn and Adam's exquisite style, and absolutely stunning decor. Take a look at some of our favorite images!

We wish you both the best "Holly & Paul" - drinks soon ;)
