I LOVE shooting Union Mills Homestead. It’s a tabula rasa for a fresh look. I’ve shot here from hurricane to perfect crisp fall day and this historic property just south of the Pennsylvania border in Silver Run, Maryland never disappoints in her ability to provide ample opportunities for great composition. The property teams with water elements, landscaping, historical buildings and big old sweeping trees . . . pretty sweet.
Amanda is a fashionista with a personal sense of style. She’s the kinda gal that planned the details of her wedding day from the time she could dream of wearing sparkle headbands. Her forties inspired wedding trousseau included a beautiful handmade hair ornament and feather and jewel encrusted stilettos to dance the night away . . . until the custom bedazzled flip flops took over.
Yep. I’m a sucker for particle in the light. It gets me every time.
Favorite part of the ceremony? When the pastor encouraged Jason and Amanda to be the kind of parents who are attentive, purposeful and diligent. All their family and friends were working to suppress snickers, and it was then that I realized that Jason, like Amanda is a primary school teacher. So, yeah, they got a jumpstart on that part.
My favorite, lavendar dotted the property and the venue and made everything smell divine. And that complemented the divine provided by Kountry Kafe and Katering, the in house caterer for this historic property.
Amanda was a joy to work with . .. having spend some time in front of the lens leading up to her wedding day made her confident, unguarded, and super fun to shoot.
Tim and I had a blast out in the dark trying to get these shutter drag, sparkler shots . . . at the end of a great party full of libation, not as cut and dry as one might think. But we were all laughing hard because some letters have to be written in mirror image. . . .Mr. N, in J-A-S-O-N . . . he sorta got nabbed (heh heh) . . . and I’m not even gonna talk about the Dancin’ Queen who got assigned the final “A”. Ha! Good thing Jason and Amanda are used to reading youngsters’ papers.
