This blog was viewed more than 14,000 times in 2013. Thanks to everybody who spent a few minutes here. I hope you enjoyed the photographs.
The busiest day was June 3 with 650 views. That’s the day I posted pictures from Lauren Horne and Maurio Fiore’s wedding. That’s Lauren and Maurio making out in the back seat of a Rolls-Royce.
The record for views over a three-day period is held by Malorie Castor and Jason Westrick, with 756.
By the way, the image above shows how important it is to have two photographers at your wedding. Paula Fairman Frymover shot this while I was busy someplace else.

It rained and rained and rained, then POOF! The sun came out. Thank you, Pastor Rick.
Jackie Jircitano and Alan Kerstetter were married at one of my favorite places: Lily Manor in Mifflin, PA. They decided on a “first look” before the ceremony, so we could get a lot of the photographs done early.
The ladies were ready for anything.

Before you put your wedding dress away forever, wouldn’t you like to wear it one more time? How about a “rock the dress” shoot? You’d have a lot of fun, and you’d get to show off that gown again.
If you were on the gymnastics team, we could photograph you – in your dress – on a balance beam. Or we can go somewhere you didn’t have time for on your wedding day: a field of sunflowers, for instance.
A couple of props from your closet? Some old things from your mother’s attic?
If you’re really adventurous, we can do something like the shot below. But there’s no need to trash your real dress. You can pick one up on eBay for $20.

Gotta love warm days in November, right? An outdoor ceremony in beautiful, golden sunlight … and my fingers don’t get cold.
Shelby Reisinger and Dustin Freyermuth were married at Lily Manor, a beautifully restored mansion, circa 1794, in Mifflin, Pennsylvania.

Who knew that M&Ms would make such a great background for wedding rings?
Becky Kauffman and Zach Allen were married on a warm (OK, hot) day at Lily Manor in Mifflin, PA. The flowers lining the aisle were gorgeous, the green accents everywhere were perfect, and I learned something: Sunscreen burns when it drips into your eyes.
Don’t you love the personalized hanger?
This is Austin, the ring bearer.

After a week of strong thunderstorms, the sky cleared for Breann Reismeier and Alan Snyder.
Lily Manor was beautiful (it always is) and everyone had a great time.
Alan and Breann brewed the beer as favors for their guests. The photograph is from an engagement shoot we did last fall.
Hard to believe, but I didn’t have even one piece of candy.
I did have a piece of wedding cake. Delicious!

I just received Nikon’s newest, best camera! The D4 produces images that are sharper and more detailed, with great skin tones and vastly improved performance in low light.
“The D4 is a game changer,” says the incredible photographer Joe McNally. “Right off the bat, I was impressed with the file. It was, in a word, smooth. I know that’s not a techy description, but I was impressed by the detail and the creaminess of the pictures. No sharpness of contrast, or harshly defined lines of demarcation between highlights and shadows.”
The D4 is all about getting shots that someone else won’t, and it means your photographs will be better than ever.
