Wedding Photographer Cornwall Inn – Mount Gretna

This fall I had another opportunity to photograph a wedding at the Cornwall Inn in Mount Gretna.  I picked up this wedding through a referral which worked out quite well.  I enjoy shorter weddings with this one falling in at around 4 hours of coverage.  The weather was bit on the cold side, but the sunlight was great and I captured a bunch of excellent images.  I enjoy fall weddings because of the cooler weather and the changes in color.  Tod and Brittany were some of my easiest clients to work with.

See below for several samples from the day…

Harrisburg Wedding Photographer at Fort Indiantown Gap

In mid August I attended the wedding of Shawn & Liz.  I set out to the hotel for some getting ready shots at a hotel in Grantville PA.  The hotel provided some great natural light and I captured several creative images.  From there we traveled about 25 minutes to a church for the ceremony and grabbed a bunch of family portraits and bridal party wedding photos inside and out.

Both Shawn and Liz work in the armed forces, giving use exclusive access to high security army base for some photos.  After a few quick shots, we headed to the reception location in Fort Indiantown Gap.  It’s important to have backups of essential gear.  One of my flashes died during the reception, but I carried on with my backups.  I generally have about 5 speedlight flashes, not including my strobes, which are more useful for a wedding photo booth or other event.  Ensuring your photographer has at least two cameras and additional backup gear is essential for a successful wedding, at least for the wedding photography part.

For their engagement session, my brother and I traveled to Liz’s family farm in Forksville, PA, which is about 1.45 hours from Harrisburg.  I always enjoy new and refreshing locations and the weather was great.  I don’t mind traveling, but I do charge a little extra to make it worth the time.  I actually picked up a random hitch hiker on the way up.  I pulled over to stretch for a few minutes and out comes some female worker dressed in what looked like a construction uniform.  She worked with the local oil and gas company.  Anyways, she needed a ride to a gas station about 15 minutes away to get a ride from someone else, which was on the same road we’d pass anyway.

Check out a few of the wedding photos that I selected here.  Their engagement session photos is also posted below.
