Heather & Brent are expecting! ~ MKPhotography Pennsylvania Maternity Photographer

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

We met Heather and Brent at their home on a very cloudy and a little rainy day to document a new moment in their lives. I was joking with them on their wedding day that we needed a tractor for Heather’s portraits in the field. Brent promised me one for their belly shoot in the future. A few years later, we are here with a huge yellow shiny tractor!
Congratulations to both of you. We can’t wait to meet and photograph your little boy in a few weeks.

Baby Sophie ~ MKPhotography Pennsylvania Family Photographer

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

We would like thank Kim, one of our brides for setting up and arranging this session. She purchased a gift certificate for the brother and sister in law, so that they would be able to have wonderful images to remember Sophie as a tiny baby.
She was beyond cute!
We just love making memories.

From the Bride:
Joe and I could be in one of those eHarmony commercials because we are one of their success stories. We like to think fate had a hand in bringing us together — I subscribed for a 3-month membership and planned to discontinue it because I hadn’t met anyone who sparked my interest. Then my membership automatically renewed because I forgot to cancel it before the 3-month deadline. Joe and I were matched in the fourth month so we always thank our lucky stars for that automatic renewal! Both of our parents were high school sweethearts and have been married for over 35 years. We’re hoping we have the same good fortune with our modern day romance.

Joe’s original proposal plan was very romantic and included lots of flowers and candles all over our house. I ruined that plan because I took the day off from work when he was planning to set everything up at the house and he ended up having to travel that day for work. We were leaving for a vacation at the beach the following day so I was upstairs packing when Joe got home from work. He asked me to come downstairs, and there was a gift bag and a box on the dining room table. He told me to open the bag first so I did and it had a bunch of little stuff for our vacation like suntan lotion, playing cards and squirt guns. Then I opened the box and it had a small light blue pillow in it with a handwritten note on top that said “This is a floor pillow. Put on floor.” I was completely clueless and kind of looked back and forth between Joe and the pillow before telling him that I didn’t get it and asking him what a floor pillow was. In my head, I was thinking, this does not match anything in our house so why in the world did he buy it? He told me to put it on the floor and see what happens and then I finally figured it out. When I put the pillow on the floor our dog Tug tried to grab it but Joe was able to get down on one knee first and then he asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!! It was the perfect proposal because we were at home and our dog, who we love dearly, was able to be a part of it. Joe gave me a card afterwards that said everything he knew he would be too nervous to say in the moment. I loved it because now I can keep that card forever to remember the day he proposed!

One of the highlights from our wedding day that everyone is still talking about was our ring bearer and flower girl stealing the show during our first dance. Our 2 1/2 year old niece (on Joe’s side) and nephew (on my side) started dancing together during our first dance and everyone was oohing and aahing and applauding. We were happy to share the spotlight because it was the most adorable thing!

Reconnect Thursdays: We are very excited to share a traditional and beautiful wedding from last year. As always a special thanks to all the vendors. Enjoy!

From the Bride: “Jana!! The pictures are absolutely stunning!

You both have an extraordinary talent…. in looove with these photos. Please let me know when you put your favorites up!!”

Avi and I met on Jdate (jewish dating site)… his profile picture was him hanging from a tree like a monkey. I knew he was silly and I wanted to learn more. It was raining on the day we met. I remember pulling up to the restaurant in a cab. Avi was waiting outside with an umbrella and opened the cab door for me. Over dinner, he told me that he was not going on any more first dates…. little did he know he had sealed his fate!

It turned out that we had gone to the same summer camp and although Avi is 3 years older than me, we overlapped at camp for 7 summers! From looking at his old camp pictures, I actually remember him being the camp clown! He was this little guy that everyone loved and I have specific memories of this from 15+ years ago.

On a weekend trip to the Finger Lakes in upstate NY, we hired a driver to take us to some local wineries. Our first stop was at the Bellhurst Castle winery, the driver told us that she wanted to show us around the grounds. She led us outside where a table was set up overlooking the lake. Avi brought me to this table where a bottle of champagne was labeled , “Dena, will you marry me?”! I was elated and of course said “yes!”

Today, he is my silly man and I love every bit of him. Our July 3, 2011 wedding was incredible. Family members flew in from as far as Israel and friends, many from summer camp, helped share in the most special day of our lives.
