Once the wedding arrived, I was excited to work with them once again. Their wedding day did not disappoint. Their bridal party treated me like a friend and both families could not have been nicer. It was the perfect day to be a photographer.

It was a day filled with laughter, tears, live music, dancing, amazing friends & family, and of course……….more laughter.

My first wedding of 2013 could not have been more perfect. The wedding was at Riverdale Manor in Lancaster, PA.

Ashley and Travis were so fun to work with. The weather was not fully cooperating on their wedding day but that did not stop Ashley. She was doing photos outside no matter what, and I loved it.

The mist made the nighttime shots so beautiful. I love that you can see the mist in those 2 photos.

Riverdale Manor is one of the nicest wedding venues I have seen in Central PA. I can’t wait to photograph another wedding at this amazing location.

Here is a wedding day slideshow from Ashley and Travis’ amazing day.

Here are a few of my favorite wedding photos from the big day:

Ashley and Travis decided on a first look, which let them enjoy their entire cocktail hour with friends and family:

Capturing moments like this, when Ashley’s dad saw his daughter as a bride for the first time, is the #1 reason that I love photographing weddings…

Last Saturday I headed back up to Riverdale Manor in Lancaster, PA for the wedding of Ashley and Travis.

They had me bring my Party Cam, which is an open air style photo booth. The guests loved it, the bridal party loved it, the staff loved it, and most importantly, the bride and groom loved it.

The wedding at Riverdale Manor was amazing, so check back tomorrow to see a full blog post of the wedding photos. In the meantime, enjoy this short, awesome slideshow from The Party Cam.
