Listen, I’ve looked through a lot of weddings in my day.  But, I have to be honest, as  I scrolled through Katelyn and Trevor’s photo collection I continuously exclaimed — LOOK AT THESE PEOPLE!  THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!  THIS IS MY FAVORITE PICTURE!  NO THIS ONE!!!!

My favorite thing about the pictures is that you can tell how much they love each other.  And how their wedding was an important event not just marking the beginning of their new life together, but also the joining of their two big, gorgeous families, whom they love very much.  I hope you have an hour or two to get caught up in this love story that John and Kim captured on film!

But first, their sweet, sweet engagement pictures!

Um, I’m sorry, is this even real?  Stunning, simply stunning.

Now, for the main event.  I may be completely biased, as I was a green shoed bride, but Katelyn’s details were absolutely stunning.

From the bride:

Trev [that handsome, fella up there]  has always associated the color of green with me (I have green eyes, I wear a good deal of green, I love green nature, and so on and so forth). So, green was an easy choice for wedding color.   And we threw purple in because it seemed springy, and who doesn’t love purple flowers, right?

Katelyn, seriously, the only people who don’t love purple flowers are probably the same people that don’t like ice cream cones and puppies.  So, I’m totally with you.

Alright, onto these gorgeous wedding details.

How Katelyn’s parents ever decided which of their daughter’s bridal portraits to buy and hang up in their home is seriously beyond me.

 

Oh!  The ceremony!  This is where I started to get choked up.  You’ll be able to see just how excited these two are to be getting hitched.  The ceremony was clearly the highpoint of the day.  From the bride:

Trev and I got to know each other a lot during the Bible study we were in with some of our med school friends. Our faith plays a huge role in our lives and relationship, so our ceremony means a great deal to us because it’s our covenant before God. We will probably not include many of the traditional additions to the ceremony but we will take communion together and [took] great care in choosing our readings and hymns.

These bridal party pictures make me want to get all of our friends back together, dressed identically to have more pictures taken.  Again from Katelyn:

We’ve been blessed to have a wedding party comprised of wonderful and unique individuals, which we attempted to highlight by allowing the girls to choose their own dress/jewelry/shoes and by picking out a different tie for each groomsman.

Yay!  My favorite part of the day — let’s PARTY!  Trevor and Katelyn were obviously also looking forward to getting their party on!

We envision a fun, love-filled gathering of the important people in our lives which celebrates our love for each other and commitment before God! And plenty of ridiculous dancing!

Fun fact!  Katelyn’s friend from high school made their adorable cake!  I wish I had friends that made me perfect cakes.  Maybe I can get this friend’s number…?

What a fabulous-looking day!  Congrats Katelyn and Trevor!  If your beautiful photos are any indication, I think you’re out there having a gorgeous life together.

Here’s a run down of Katelyn and Trevor’s wedding details:

Sanderson Images never disappoints when it comes to babies!  When I first saw Jon and Amanda’s family photos taken at the ever lovely Hans Herr House my heart literally exploded.  Their beautiful family, photographed on a chilly day, made my evening.  Even when baby got a little pouty and teary I still had a huge smile on my face — you can tell Jon and Amanda are so tickled with their beautiful babe.

Oh and lest I forget best part!  Jon and Amanda are members of the SI family!   Their baby sesh is part two of their story that began when John and Kim captured their wedding in 2009!

I know you’ll love these pictures!

We’re back and our blogging season has once again returned. As many of you know we are hard at work each summer capturing events and creating wonderful products for our clients. In addition to this, we try our very very best to balance photo-life with our family, friends and homeschooling our kids. So it’s not that crazy that we haven’t updated the blog in awhile, right???   Ok, fine, we’re looong overdue to share a ton of wonderful images captured recently and to help us, (drumroll please…..) please meet our friend Lauren.

Lauren is our new blogging assistant and contributor, she will be a huge part of our new strategy to get more images out there for everyone to enjoy. She will, in so many very wonderful ways, do the work we just haven’t been able to achieve with our wild schedules traveling for events and teaching the kids about exoskeletons or some other crazy, wonderful thing. We’re SO excited to introduce you to her! A former wedding client, turned amazing friend, she is funny, kind, generous, an amazing athlete (seriously…check out her latest blog!!  How is that for goal setting?!?!  Yeah, she’s the bomb diggity.  You heard it here first people!)  and possibly one of the best bloggers we know out there. Her personality fits in perfectly here and we hope you enjoy her writing and comments about the work we are presenting as much as we do!!

A few months ago we had another opportunity to photograph Lauren and her husband Mark at Central Market in Downtown Lancaster and Lancaster County park. Enjoy the photos and please join us in welcoming Lauren to our team!!

Hi SI readers and fans!!  I cannot wait to proliferate John and Kim’s art on their beautiful blog!  I’m a firm believer that the best way to hold onto precious moments in our lives, other than experiencing them in authentic way,  is to capture them.  My family has had Sanderson Images with us to create art that truly captures the love and excitement of so many special times in our lives.  I’m deeply honored to be able to share YOUR love captured in John and Kim’s photographs as part of their crazy awesome creative process.  Please stop back often as we have a ton of memories created that are just begging to be shared.

~Lauren

Lancaster, PA wedding and Portrait Photo

Featuring our latest Aspen wedding.

Aspen is one of our favorite locations to photograph a wedding! We have photographed many weddings here over the years and each one is completely unique. We have a little word of mouth bug traveling the Rockies and we are blessed to get to travel to this awesome place every once in awhile. Colorado has an amazing vibe and wonderful people.

A Note from the Photographers.

Jacquline and Jarka are inspiring and successful entrepreneurs who were so in love and wonderful to photograph. The event was beautiful and so elegantly planned. Everything about their wonderful wedding embodied an “Aspen wedding” in a modest and tasteful way. They lived it up for one amazing night in their new hometown.

Photographers Notes
Pittsburgh is one of the most amazing places to work. So much to photograph. Dave and Nora really planned this day well. Everything went without a hitch. While we received this wedding through a complex network of referrals, Dave is a local photographer and I think this helped them prepare for the photography aspect of the day.. They knew how to have fun with the pictures and we basically just had fun taking them.. It was a perfect day all around.
