You really can't go wrong here, it's just.so.gorgeous. Add in a funky VW Van theme, tiny daisies in the bride's hair, and a SERIOUSLY gorgeous and sunny day: you have pure magic. 

Now, it was a hot day. But no one seemed to mind. The guests were all smiles, and the groomsmen were allll laughs. I get lucky when I have a group that has as much fun as these guys did. I really enjoyed documenting Jess and Graham's wedding this weekend. It was such a fun day, so many laughs, and the fooooood. Oh, the food. Good lord they outdid themselves. 


These two lovebirds exchanged a letter to each other before the ceremony, and then we snuck out to the courtyard for their first look. 


And the EXIT! Graham just scooped up Jess and away they ran!

Meredith and Joe Nimitz Wedding, The Grand Halle, Johnstown http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2018/1/meredith-and-joe-nimitz-wedding-the-grand-halle-johnstown I can't say enough about these two, they are so fun, genuine, and classic. I was truly stunned by the dress, the HAIR; Meredith looked like she walked out of a magazine and Joe was pretty dapper himself! It was the general consensus that these two are pretty blessed in the hair department ;) 


One of my favorite parts of the day was the fabulous boots Meredith wore under her dress: When it's 12 degrees out, you have to be creative! The snow lent us a beautiful backdrop, along with the warm light of the setting sun over Richland Greens Golf course.

The day ended at the Grand Halle, and you can see the attention to detail Meredith has throughout the decor. The trees, the pinecones, the tiny white lights; everything was exceptional. I truly had the best time photographing this wedding. Their families, the love they already have for eachother: these families were truly so happy and joyful to watch Mer and Joe tie the knot. It really was an honor to photograph this wedding. So, true to my blog fashion; enjoy the love below and share to your heart's content.

We discovered that snow and dress shoes aren't a match made in heaven; but they make for some pretty funny pictures! 




Those BOOTS though!

Yellow Creek Engagement Session Tracy and Josh http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/10/yellow-creek-engagement-session-tracy-and-josh I love Yellow Creek because of the amazing sunsets and the feeling of being at the beach. So naturally I was excited that Tracy and Josh chose this as their session location. We met at sunset, they brought their pups and some pals to help wrangle said pups, and we jaunted around to find the best spots and the best sunset light. I really love these sunset engagement sessions, so much glowry warmth and these two are so sweet and kind.

Olivia and Storm Engagement Session http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/10/olivia-and-storm-engagement-sessoin I love that Olivia and Storm wanted to plan a fall engagement session. I took them to one of my favorite spots in Indiana and we had a great time. No one fell down (winning!) we saw a few deer, and Olivia saved me from at least 3 massive spiders. All in all, a good photoshoot was had ! 

Enjoy all the fun images below!

Senior Session Tyler http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/10/senior-session-tyler I spent an afternoon with Tyler and his mom coming up with some studio shots as well as venturing around Indiana to some of the great locations the town has. We decided on doing something different and fun to reflect Tyler's interests, computers and gaming:) Check it out below!

Senior Session Ben http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/10/senior-session-ben I spent the afternoon with Ben and his parents scouting out spots and creating some senior portraits that I love, liker seriously, i've already printed these on metal for my studio samples! He's a big hockey player so we started out at the War Memorial in Johnstown for some pictures on the ice and then headed out to some spots around Johnstown. We had a great time, a lot of laughs, took some funny pictures of his mom to use as blackmail (tee hee) and ended up with a killer senior session catalog for him to choose from. Enjoy!

The Wedding of Anthony and Becky Kasinskas http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-wedding-of-anthony-and-becky-kasinskas I had such a great time hanging out with these two on their wedding day at the Capitol Building in Harrisburg, PA. I sincerely loved photographing this intimate ceremony at the top of the lawn of the Capitol, and the sun made a happy appearance near the end! The fountain is pink for breast cancer awareness month, which was really cool! We spent some time walking around the area finding beautiful spots to photograph the happy couple. I have many more to share of this fun day, but here's a few peeks for now!

It was H-O-T HOT HOT out and by the end we were all melting. But we had an awesome time and found some great locations in Johnstown to shoot at. I love that dad got us some ice time at the War Memorial, we have so many more from this session to share but here's a few of my favorites!

Sarah and Mike Fisher Wedding Sneak Peeks http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/9/sarah-and-mike-fisher-wedding-sneak-peeks This wedding was seriously the most fun I've had with a bridal couple in a long time!  Mike struck a pose at every turn, he's fully ready for his modeling career. Sarah was a stunning array of sparkles and class and floated on air from the moment she stepped into her gown. This couple was so sweet, up for anything, completely having fun and enjoying every moment of their day. Photographing couples like this is what makes me happiest; I love working with fun, hilarious, and joyful people who are just truly living in the moment and well, whooping it up! 


Mike and Sarah chose to do a First Look at the hotel they were getting ready at. The quiet courtyard in the back gave us a beautiful backdrop of the Chestnut Ridge golf course; and we couldn't have asked for a sunnier day! 

Mike said his "allergies were acting up" here *wink wink*









We moved to the Country Club in Indiana to get some fun bridal party shots and some va-va-voom gorgeous images of the bride and groom themselves


Mike kept joking about how he and Sarah have been practicing their "dip" and he scared the life out of me when he pretended to almost drop her next to the pond at the club. I'm still recovering....



I was so excited to see their first dance. The couple told me they had never really danced in public before and they had been getting ready for the big moment. I think they killed it! Hi, can you say, epic dip?! Good job you two! 

Mike sang to Sarah the whole time they were dancing. Seriously. Girl, you got yourself a keeper!


Congratulations you two, from the bottom of my heart. It was fun, hilarious, sweet, joyful teary day, and I'm so happy I met you both.


May the wind always be at your backs

Halfway to Home, Abe's 6 month milestone session http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/8/halfway-to-home-abes-6-month-milestone-session Remember sweet lil Abe? His newborn session was one of my favorites and we met up to do a baseball "Halfway to Home" session for his milestone. Mama brought all the kiddos who ran around with dad at the baseball field, while we snuggled up Abe and made him giggle. Nothing fazes this little guy, he's a smiler!

I love seeing her every year, she's been one of my favorite little face, you'll see some of these images displayed at my new studio in Indiana. She's a ham, she's fun, sassy, and loves to model for her pictures. We've come a long way from our first session as a baby: i had to WORK to get her to crack a smile! Now, she's all grins!

The Wedding of Alexandra and Stefan Moreau http://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/8/the-wedding-of-alexandra-and-stefan-moreau This wedding. THIS.WEDDING.

Seriously, top five of my all-time favorites.

Alexandra has such an eye for detail, every bit of this wedding was her vision and dream and she carried it out to perfection. Stefan had all eyes on her, and how could he not, have you seen this girl?! She was a vision in her crystal draped semi-backless gown. Grace Kelly herself would turn her head to Alexandra's  custom headpiece and elegant mermaid gown. 

The ceremony at Zion Lutheran Church in Indiana, PA was followed by a butterfly release, and Alexandra's bouquet was too sweet to resist, with a few butterflies camping out on it for the duration of her family portraits. A reception followed at the Barn at Rayne Run, and the golden sunset took over the mood lighting, filling their first dance with sparkling glittery glow. You can't make this stuff up folks, it was magic. DJ Bob Rout with Third Wave Sound kept the night going strong and the bridal party made sure EVERYONE danced, laughed and stayed well past dark. 

I laughed all day with these amazing people and I'm really honored to have documented this momentous day for such a sweet and lovely couple. 

Alexandra and Stefan, may the wind always be at your back.
