This beautiful wedding ceremony took place in the rolling mountains of Pennsylvania, outside the city of Altoona. The Casino at Lakemont Park is a wedding venue I have photographed many times, and it is always a pleasure! The weather at Schwab Estate was very unpredictable that day, with the sun nowhere to be seen! There were thunderstorms, hail, and strong winds! However, you would never know this from the STUNNING photographs we were able to get! Thanks to some last-minute creative direction on my part, and a couple that trusted me more than anything, we were able to capture this day beautifully!
Aary and I absolutely loved being part of Alex and Sarah’s wedding day! Their families treated us so amazing, they will truly go down in history as a couple who really know what it means to show the Lord’s love to us. When I first met Sarah and her mom, there was an instant connection. I knew after about 20 minutes of meeting with her that she was “the one” for me! That is sooooooo funny how that works, but believe it or not, we choose our clients just as much as our clients choose us. I have recently discovered that when there is an immediate “spark” with a bride, she is definitely THE ONE!
Their wedding day was elegant, classy, and filled with love. Sarah took so much care into every aspect of her day, with the goal of having it published. I absolutely love when brides plan their day to be published, it lets me know that they truly value my work.
I am so excited for Sarah and Alex and I look forward to capturing many memories for them in the future as they start their next chapter!
