Hooray for the first wedding of 2018! Life has been beyond crazy in the McClain household over the past year (and more so the past couple of months) so we were totally stoked to get back to shooting weddings! Ashley and Aldrich had an amazing wedding day filled with laughter and love. My favorite part had to be during the ceremony when the bride’s 3 year old nephew treated his father’s head like a tootsie roll pop. Curious? Keep scrolling;-)

Most couples we meet months if not years in advance of their wedding, Mate and Jess.. let’s go for two weeks before their wedding day! We met Mate & Jessica through former bride and kick ass coordinator, Dana M. McGinley. With ties to the Hershey community, a Purcell Hall wedding was perfect for these two which featured an amazing, if not the best weather day in July, Duck Donuts, and a beautiful sunset.

About this time last year we were about to kick off one of the best receptions of the year with Julie and AJ at Historic Acres of Hershey. These two (and their gorgeous pups) were beyond amazing to photograph! Wishing you both an amazing happy first anniversary!

All photographers have that list- you know.. the one where we say ‘OMG, I really want to shoot here sometime’. You could say it’s our venue bucket list. Hershey Country Club was definitely on our venue bucket list and it couldn’t have been a more perfect experience with the hands down amazing team they have there (shout out to coordinator, Amanda C) or a more perfect couple, Amanda & Sean.
We met Amanda and Sean a bit ago for their engagement session at Memorial Lake where they got engaged. Although a bit warm back then, we had no idea September was going to be the new August this year. Thankfully, the humidity broke a bit and evening pictures at Hershey Trust and on the course were a breeze. My favorite moment from the day, and really it is hard choosing just one, was the non-first look, first look- which is when a couple is photographed together but not seeing each other directly. Sean looked so incredibly nervous and just so excited for the moment when he could actually take in the moment together with Amanda. Those emotions- Fave!
