Terrain at Styers Bridal Shower with Mallory ~ Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer ~ mkPhoto

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Terrain at Styers is one of our favorite places to visit ~ for inspiration, for an amazing cup of coffee, or for a wonderful lunch. We were supper excited when one of our favorite brides asked us to photograph her bridal shower at Terrain at Styers. We usually get to meet the couple before the big day and we love the relationship we are able to build. Meeting the entire family and most of bridal party a few months before the wedding was quite special. We can;t wait to Mallory & Jesse’s wedding in May at the One Atlantic.

While we all adore babies and all the props that are currently in, I am still the biggest fan of baby with mommy and daddy photos that almost bring tears to the eyes. SO much love and tenderness for the new baby addition. We love to see our clients’ families growing and having the opportunity to capture the love.

Sarah & Matt’s Proposal @ Longwood Gardens ~ Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer ~ mkPhoto

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

These two could not be any more adorable and in love. Matt called us only a few short days before visiting Longwood Gardens and shared his plan to propose to his sweetheart Sarah. We just had to come up with a spot to meet and unobtrusively capture the moment without arising suspicion. Little mk was the perfect decoy and unsuspecting Sarah actually walked passed us apologizing for interrupting our pretend portrait session. Matt dropped to one knee and out of his pocket came the most beautiful ring. Sarah was ecstatic and with a huge hug said YES!

We were there to capture it all. The master plan worked and Jana even cried a little. It is a privilege to photograph such a joyful moment for a sweet, loving couple. We are so happy to capture beautiful images that will bring back memories for the rest of Matt and Sarah’s lives.
