I was absolutely honored when Jess & Brandon asked me to photograph their rehearsal dinner. Matt and I had planned a weekend away in Newport, RI, to attend their nautical wedding, so I gladly added my camera gear to my packing list. Jess & Brandon have a magical love story (read more about it in their engagement blog here), so I couldn't wait to capture part of this next chapter of their lives together.
I spent this past weekend back in my childhood hometown of Cresson, PA, to spend time with family and escape the concrete jungle. It’s so calm and quiet there compared to the Mile Square City. Cresson sits 2,000 feet above sea level, so it’s always significantly colder than the surrounding towns. The ground was dusted with snow and the air was brisk. I spent a fair amount of time sitting at the kitchen table, catching up on some editing work while looking out over the snowy backyard lined with evergreen trees.
