• Welcome to the Sanderson Images blog.

    We are professional wedding photographers in Lancaster, PA. We are a married photography team dedicated to capturing real moments and creative images in our own unique and artistic style. For over 10 years we've captured hundreds of weddings across America, from Aspen Colorado to Newport, RI offering clients a fun and easy-going experience. Let us offer the same to you!

Time for us to take a “Less is More” approach to blogging. I sat down to pour though some of the thousands of images from this amazing 2 day event and finally decided that if I chose all the images I loved the viewers might never arrive to the bottom of the post! So here we go.. Laura and Sunny blew us away with an amazing double wedding weekend! It was so much fun I can’t stand it. Day one was wonderful Indian (Hindu) wedding in DC and Day two was a unique Serbian Orthodox (Greek) experience. It rained a bit and it was HOT but nothing stopped these guys from getting the weddings they were hoping for.

Hindu Ceremony/Reception: Westin Dulles

Greek Orthodox Ceremony: Saint Katherine Orthodox Church

First up…the Baarat!  The clouds parted for just long enough to dance our way up to the hotel to meet the bride.  We LOVE this part and you can tell from the images, that they do too…

The unveiling allows the bride and groom to first lay eyes on one another…such an awesome moment!

Although the rain started up again, we were able to grab some portraits of the bridal party in their traditional attire.

DAY 2!!!  Greek Orthodox wedding!  One of the things that we loved so much about this amazing couple was the way they so respected and embraced each other’s upbringings and traditions.

These groomsmen might have had a little TOO much fun pelting Sunny and Laura on the way out…made for some awesome images though!!

2016-02-02_0025It was HOT.  They humored us while we took them on a nice walk around the venue…so many beautiful backdrops!

I think this ended up being Sunny’s favorite…how GQ is he?!


What a beauty.  She was born to wear that dress!

2016-02-02_0031 2016-02-02_0032Okay…let’s PARTY!

Every year I enjoy some turns with my good friend Anton and the Manheim Township High School Ski Club. We’re telemarkers, so although the high schoolers we chaperone haven’t realized it yet,  we’re super cool.  ;) So.. we like to take pictures in an attempt to capture the fluid movements of the skill. How do we do it? Well we just strap a flash on and go skiing!

Skiing on the East coast, even at an awesome resort like Blue Mountain can be an icy experience but these photos show that the snow can still be quite good and very enjoyable. We hope you enjoy the pictures.. more to come in the series.

A treat for you, a personal blog post! I know its been forever, but better now then never, right? An amazing 30″ of snow fell on the Sanderfarm this weekend. A beautiful layer of fun marooned us for 3 days . So what does a wedding photographer do when he can’t get to the studio? He grabs the cutest people he knows  for some pictures in the snow. Enjoy!

Back to the studio tomorrow.
