Kelsie + Chase | Historic Shady Lane Wedding

This elegant, but casual and fun, bohemian wedding was really about the people and the personalized details that are sooooo Kelsie and Chase. Despite the fact that everything was so thought out and so beautiful I was drawn to the guests, their love for the couple and how everyone just felt like one big giant happy family.

Bri + Chad | Moonstone Manor Wedding

Moonstone Manor Wedding

"Cambria is AMAZING!!! She photographed my wedding Saturday September 2nd 2017 at Moonstone Manor in Elizabethtown, PA. My husband wanted someone he felt comfortable with that would understand our vision without forcing there style on us. Cambria was perfect! She turned our rainy day into one we will never forget. She was able to capture everything we talked about and even mores we didn’t. Our guest gave great feed back on how “down to earth” she is. We truly are thankful for everything she did for us not only on that day, or the engagement session, but everyday in between. Cambria truly has a gift and we were honored to have her photograph us."

-BreAnn Spinello

Tell me about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? Did you have a specific theme or style? Any traditions? 
We got married at a beautiful Mansion “Moonstone Manor” in Elizabethtown, PA. It was a small wedding with our closest friends and family. We wanted a gatsby theme but without the costumes. Elegant but simple. We wanted it to feel welcoming and fun for guests.

What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding day?
We did a first a first look. It was my favorite part. Unrehearsed raw emotion. I was fine the whole day, happy, excited, all smiles, but when I opened the door to walk out to my future husband emotions took over and I was nervous, I started crying shaking and smiling all at once. The fact that I knew my future husband was about to see me for the first time was the best overwhelming feeling I’ve ever had. We also enjoyed the adventure of taking pictures let’s just say slippery rocks and a wedding gown/suit don’t go well with water. But it makes for one heck of a picture!

How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.
Chad and I met at a local bar in York, PA on Christmas Day. Safe to say he was my best gift ever. We dated for 3 years before he asked me to marry him. We are very adventurous people we love to hike be on the river or go on vacation. Chad took me to me Pole Steeple on my birthday (in February) which is a hiking spot. Weird I thought why are we going hiking when there’s snow on the ground. But that’s where he asked me at the top of a cliff over looking a pond. It was very romantic.

Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
Make it fun! Don’t spend money on anything you can do yourself. Invitations are nice but they end up in the trash. Spend money on photography, food and the DJ. The rest will work itself out. And don’t look at the weather! It’s your day try to remember that, make it how you and your fiancé talked about it.

Monica + Jacob | Pole Steeple Engagement at Pine Grove Furnace State Park

This hiking adventure spared no ounce of water or breathtaking views. About a one mile hike straight uphill to the top of pole steeple and it’s easy for anyone to fall in love. Monica and Jake were super easy going and had great stories to tell along the way. I truly love getting to know each one of my clients and finding that common ground that brings us together. It’s far more than just being your photographer, right?!

I am anxious to hear what life has in store for them after their wedding day!

Molly + Matt | Springton Manor Farm Wedding

Molly + Matt | Springton Manor Farm Wedding

Molly and Matt are the perfect artsy scientist couple (literally a scientist), which makes me love them even more, so when Matt shared these words during the ceremony, I was completely in tears alongside Molly. I can only imagine how she must have felt hearing these words:

Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is a tiny blue dot that we humans call home. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries. We are constantly reminded that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is a prerequisite to survival. Our little planet floats like a mote of dust in the morning sky. All that you see, all that we can see, exploded out of a star billions of years ago, and the particles slowly arranged themselves into living things, including all of us. We are made of star stuff. We are the mechanism by which the universe can comprehend itself.

The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth. We should remain grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides. The sum of all our evolution, our thinking and our accomplishments is love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with the person you love for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity. A marriage makes two fractional lives a whole. It gives to two questioning natures a renewed reason for living. It brings a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, and a new mystery to life.

Heather + Glenn | State College, PA Backyard Wedding

Heather and Glenn's backyard wedding in State College, PA was simple, warm, comfortable, beautiful, and fun—everything you'd want in a backyard wedding. They really had a plus one with the already-built barn, and the private property allowed for an all night party with their closest friends and family.

Other than the fact that is was brutally hot, I was easily distracted by the open arms everyone had towards me. The fact that I had just met Heather and Glenn on their wedding day (not usually the case) and sat at the head table, says a lot about the company I had that day and the kind of people that they both will have in their lives, supporting them.
