Where will 2017 lead us? 

Lately there's been a lot of focus on how terrible 2016 was, but I think that depends on what you choose to remember it by. For Aaron and I, we were able to experience 3 out of the 4 corners of the country this year alone... I'd say that makes 2016 pretty awesome. As we gear up for the new year, we know we want to make it just as memorable and adventurous. Let us know where you think 2017 should lead us!

 

Happy New Year!

Rachel and Matt's wedding day began with a beautiful ceremony held at the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Church in Elysburg, PA. After making their promise to one another, it was off to the Barn at Hidden Acres for a fun filled evening of heartfelt speeches, tons of laughter, and endless dance moves. We had just as much fun documenting this day as they did sharing it with their family and friends! Congratulations Rachel & Matt!

Hurricane Matthew (and no, I'm not talking about the groom) threatened to wash out all chances of having Brittany & Matt's outdoor wedding ceremony. The sky turned dark, but thankfully the rain held off until the very end! Despite the weather, the day continued on with tons of love and laughter.

Congratulations, Brittany & Matt!

Molly + Josh | The Country Barn Wedding | Lancaster, PA https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/11/molly-josh-the-country-barn-wedding-lancaster-pa

Molly + Josh | Married at The Country Barn | Lancaster, PA

What a perfect day and location for these two lovebirds to tie the knot! Molly & Josh hosted their wedding in the gorgeous loft of The Country Barn in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The room was filled with stunning wood textures and exposed brick that complimented their simple, rustic style. It was an absolutely beautiful day filled to the brim with tons of love, smiles, and heartwarming moments. From a first dance shared with their adorable daughter to tearful dedications to lost loved ones, there was no shortage of special memories for everyone involved. 



Do you have any advice for couples planning their wedding?
My advice to those planning now is to honestly just have fun with it and not to stress over it. I stressed so much while trying to plan this wedding over things that didn't even happen during the wedding lol. The time of your wedding everything just falls into place and everyone has so much fun that there's nothing to worry about. And it doesn't have to be perfect to be remembered.


What was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day?
Sharing a slow dance with my cousin Andrew.. (Who is considered like my brother) to the song Drink a Beer by Luke Bryan. This song has so much meaning to us. It was a song we dedicate to a very close family friend who was considered family who passed away in a tragic accident. Slow dancing with him was something we NEVER did because we usually aren't the lovey type of family and I think in that moment it was just so special and something I will always remember.



A shout out from the bride and groom...
To those who passed away.. we all miss you very much but we know you were looking down on us during our special day. We love and miss you everyday, Nana Martin, Pap Tobie, Amanda Webb and Great Grandma Robbins.
 

Special thanks to these incredible vendors...

Heather + CJ | Gettysburg Elopement https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/10/heather-cj-gettysburg-elopement Heather + CJ | Gettysburg Elopement

Heather & CJ decided to keep their marriage simple - a quick civil ceremony and a celebration with their family and close friends. I absolutely loved the intimacy of the whole day! The exchange of their vows took all of 15 minutes and then we were on our way to enjoy the beautiful backdrop of the Gettysburg historic district and Hauser Estate Winery. While the sky looked a bit threatening at times, it was truly a picture-perfect day. 


Meet Gus, the best man!

Congratulations, you two! We couldn't be happier for you!

Megan + Matt | Pine Barn Inn Wedding https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/10/megan-matt-pine-barn-inn-wedding Megan + Matt | Pine Barn Inn Wedding

Megan & Matt have a way about them that makes each conversation with them feel like we're just old friends catching up on moments passed. I knew it would be no different when their wedding day finally arrived. They are two of the most humble and grateful people I've had the pleasure to meet. I just loved watching their day unfold and all of the special moments shared between them and their family & friends.
Congratulations, Megan & Matt! 

What was your favorite part of the day?
"I don't know if I can narrow down the entire day to a single moment, I have plenty of moments that I loved! I loved seeing the expression on Matt's face when I was walking down the aisle, I loved the expression on my dad's face when walking me down the aisle (I'm a daddy's girl). We both are really happy that we kept our wedding party on the smaller side, just our closest friends and family. We were both happy that most of the cops could attend, they basically are our extended family. I was happy that we got to incorporate the police vehicles in some pictures, I know that meant a lot to Matt since that's been his profession thus far after college. I loved that we weren't rushed for pictures and were able to get so many different backgrounds! The pictures are what really keeps the day alive for years to come! We both loved our first dance to our favorite country artist (Thomas Rhett), and I also loved the father/daughter dance. I loved all my vendors!! I think you all did exactly what I had envisioned- the flowers, the cake, the music and the backdrops for the photos! I really can't say enough good things about any of you and I would highly recommend any of you to future brides!" Any advice for brides who are planning now?

"I think the only advice I would give to others is to really enjoy the day and don't stress. I know everyone tells every bride that but the day goes by so quickly, I still can't believe how fast it went.​"

Courtney + Joe | Watson Inn Wedding https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/8/courtney-joe-watson-inn-wedding
Courtney + Joe | Watson Inn Wedding

Rain seems to be a theme for our summer weddings this year. Lucky for us, we have some pretty awesome couples who just let it roll off their shoulders & continue to enjoy the day. Courtney & Joe are no exception. It poured like crazy, but we were still able to sneak away during the reception to grab a few fun shots with these two outdoors. 

The inspiration...
"I wanted a more modern theme with my wedding. Purple has always been my favorite color and I really wanted to incorporate that throughout the entire day. I think that was my inspiration color and everything else was based on that!"  The best part of the day...
"My favorite part of the day was when Joe & I were saying our vows. The look on his face was absolutely priceless. I've honestly never seen him look so happy and that made me happier than I could have ever imagined :-)"

 

Advice from the bride...
"My advice for other brides -- enjoy every single minute of it! Even the stressful moments! The planning, the day before, the wedding day, the morning after, everything! It goes by so quickly and is over before you know it." 

 

Special thanks to these incredible vendors...

Jessica + Wes | Pine Barn Inn Wedding

It was a very hot and humid, summer day on July 23, 2016 when Jessica & Wes were married. With family and friends by their side, they braved the 90-something degrees outside just to keep the heat on high by tearing up the dance floor straight through the night. This was easily one of the most fun, entertaining weddings we've had the pleasure to capture! 

 

 

What was the inspiration for your wedding?

"Nature inspired with something simple, elegant and classic"

 


Their favorite part of the day...
"Our alone time right after the ceremony"
 


Some advice from the bride....
"Surround yourself with positive people who are willing to make sure everything is taken care of and enjoy every moment!"

The Maine Experience https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/8/the-maine-experience So it's been a month since we've returned home from the incredible Pacific Northwest and we were really missing Portland bad. We were trying to decide where we could take a nice quick trip to help get our fill. This is where we learned of another, much closer Portland. A brief 7 hour drive from Northeast PA will lead you right to the quaint, little town of Portland, Maine. Aside from the focus on seafood and fishing, we were genuinely surprised at how closely the two Portland's compare. It was the perfect place to satisfy our craving for excellent coffee, delicious food, and places to explore until we can make it back to the PNW.

Exploring the Pacific Northwest https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/7/exploring-the-pacific-northwest The Pacific Northwest.... where do we even start? We've been wanting to make our way to the PNW for quite a while. We've managed to hit most of the country over the last four years, but tried to save the best for last. Finally, this July we made it happen! 

Our trip started with a flight into Seattle, but we were dying to get a glimpse of the massive mountains - queue Mount Rainier. The sheer size of this mountain just blew our minds! It's the most prominent mountain (actually, active volcano) in the lower 48 states... so beautiful to finally see in real life! After spending some time in the snow, we made our way to Bend, Oregon where we met up with our friend, Joe. He introduced us to this little culinary goldmine called Spork, where we ate a delicious lunch, and then took us to hit some killer Oregon dirt jumps. We ended the evening with some craft hard cider at Atlas Cider Co. Unfortunately, we woke up to some poor weather the next morning, which meant Crater Lake would have to wait until the next trip out west (it'll be soon, I hope). Instead, we packed up and headed to the coast to check out Bandon Beach. The beaches on the Pacific coast are unlike anything the east coast has to offer! There are huge rocks that help to create the photographer's dream. They're also homes to tons of different birds and seals! We made our way up the coast to Portland, hitting a few different beaches along the way. Each one just as incredibly beautiful as the last. Portland was pretty rad if we do say so ourselves! They had food options for every lifestyle - gluten free, vegan, etc - oh, and all the pizza and beer you could ever imagine! This lead to one of our favorite parts of the trip.. We got to catch back up with Joe and this time we also got to meet his awesome girlfriend, Kaylan. They took us for a night tour of the city on bikes that ended with some grub at the food trucks. We can't thank them enough for helping to make this one of our favorite trips to date! 

We will definitely be back! Sooner rather than later. Until next time...

Heather + John | The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs Wedding, Chester Springs PA https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/7/heather-john-the-washington-at-historic-yellow-springs-wedding-chester-springs-pa It's not very often that we meet our couples for the very first time on their wedding day... but that's exactly how it went with Heather & John! I had spoken with Heather a few times over the phone and from the very beginning, I knew they would be just wonderful to work with. She had this easygoing, roll with the punches kind of vibe that made it so delightful to talk with her. 

The day started off with a bit of showers, but cleared right up for their lovely outdoor ceremony in "The Ruins" at The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs. They joined their family and friends at cocktail hour to celebrate and listen to one of John's favorite musicians, Tommy Conwell. This lead to one of my personal favorite moments of the day... In the midst of all the talking and celebrating, I looked over and watched them dancing and smiling with each other like no one else was around. What a perfect depiction of true love. 

Congratulations Heather & John! We loved being a part of your day and are so happy for you!

Their favorite part of the day... 
"All of it!! The time I spent in the Bride’s room was both calm and full of anticipation and got more celebratory as the ceremony drew closer.  I enjoyed looking out of the window as the afternoon brightened and I could see all the preparations and activity buzzing around outside and even some guests arriving.  The moment that I had so looked forward to managed to catch me by surprise the most!  It was the moment I turned the corner into the stone Ruins and saw John waiting for me.  When I saw his face, I was overwhelmed with a wave of emotion.  And seeing all of our friends and family there together in support of our marriage was so special.  Once I made my way up the aisle to John, I was giddy.  And my favorite moment of the day may have been after we walked down the aisle together after the ceremony and we both looked at each other laughing and giddy and we both said 'let’s do it again!'"

Some advice from the bride....
"Plan as much as you can early on.  Life will happen and unexpected things will come up.  If you’ve laid all of the groundwork, it makes it easier to roll with changes. And, enjoy the planning and the details.  Enjoy planning together.  It’s a wonderful and exciting time, a celebration of you both and a celebration of family and friends."

Amber + Mick | Ricketts Glen Engagement https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/7/amber-mick-ricketts-glen-engagement Amber & Mick are one our 2017 couples who were really on the ball with scheduling their engagement session and booking their vendors! Mick owns and operates a professional entertainment company, Uranko Productions, making them no strangers to the whole wedding process. We are honored to be one of their chosen vendors for their upcoming wedding!

They chose the gorgeous Ricketts Glen State Park as the setting for their engagement shoot and we couldn't have been happier with their decision! Surrounded by the beautiful waterfalls, Amber & Mick really let lose and made it worth their while. It was a hot and humid summer evening, but they still hiked from one fall to the next without question, all while dressed in their nicest clothes. We loved hearing all of their stories and their willingness to get barefoot, jump into the water, climb up rocks, and just truly be themselves. 

Amber & Mick - we are so happy for you two and can't wait for your 2017 wedding!

Brittany + Matt | Engaged https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/7/brittany-matt-engaged ​I simply love meeting our wedding couples for their engagement sessions! It's the perfect time for us to get to know one another and for our couples to get comfortable in front of the camera. There is something so beautiful about watching their apprehension fade as they look into each others eyes. Brittany & Matt are no exception. As the evening went on, it seemed as though they completely forgot we were even there - which is exactly what we want! Their adorable laughter and quiet conversation made them fall so naturally into place. 

Brittany & Matt wanted a natural, fields-y look, so we ventured around Aaron's dad's Christmas tree farm outside of Catawissa. His property offers the perfect country feel and absolutely gorgeous views! 

Congratulations, Brittany & Matt! We had so much fun working with you two and can't wait for your wedding this October!

A brand new adventure | Taking the leap of faith https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/6/a-brand-new-adventure-taking-the-leap-of-faith Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith. As scary as it may be, how will you ever know if you don’t try? About a month ago, I took my first step towards a dream I’ve had for the last few years and chose to resign from my full-time position in the healthcare industry. This means that as of July, I will be a full time photographer and business owner!

I can honestly say that photography has played one of the biggest roles in shaping what my life is today. While attending Bloomsburg University as a full time business student (where I dreamed of owning my own business), I found myself searching for a hobby I could really enjoy and didn’t cost me a fortune. I’ve always been the artsy type, but I was growing tired of my usual painting and drawing. One day, against my better judgement, I just decided on a whim to spend most of my little work study paycheck on a “fancy” Nikon camera… And thank goodness I did. I became so absorbed in learning all I could about it – having fun trying all the different settings, new angles, how the light changed a picture entirely. I carried it everywhere “just in case” – heck, maybe there was something I wanted to document that day! I guess Aaron (who had been dabbling in photography himself) recognized my drive and began to send me tutorials and helpful hints that he had been using. Little did I know that those helpful messages would lead to a lifetime with this man.

I was one of those extremely fortunate people who landed a wonderful job right out of college. It was like I stepped off the stage at graduation and right into my new office. I found out that Aaron also worked for this organization – we had lunch, then a date, and one thing led to the next. We were married in October 2013 and decided to really get serious about starting our photography business shortly thereafter. As Homiak Photography really began to grow, we found ourselves working more often than not. We spend much of our day in the office just to turn around and work more once we get home. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like my job. I love that it has provided me with amazing opportunities for both personal and professional growth. Not to mention the truly incredible people I’ve been able to work with who continue to support me and my goals. I just found myself craving the opportunity to create my own schedule (kind of), focus more energy on our phenomenal clients, and really go after my passion.

We began crunching numbers and saw that we could really make this happen if we wanted to. Not having a fixed income seemed incredibly scary to me at first. How could I go without a “real” paycheck? It was hard to wrap my head around what I would do during the slower months. So yea, it may just mean that I can’t buy that dress I wanted this time around or we won’t be going to get wings for dinner this week... but that’s okay! We may have to make some minor adjustments here and there, but I know it will all be worth it.

I’m looking forward to the time I get back to really enjoy the things I don’t want to miss out on. No, I don’t have kids to raise… but I do have a husband that I wish to spend more time with, family that I want to visit more often, nieces and nephews that I want to watch grow up, and friends I want to see. There are no words to describe how fortunate I feel to be able to make this a reality all while doing what I truly love. I welcome this brand new adventure with open arms.

Erica + James | A rustic country style wedding, Catawissa PA https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/6/erica-james-a-rustic-country-style-wedding-catawissa-pa Erica & James' wedding day was a wonderful reflection of who these two are as a couple. I (Caitlin) have known Erica for MANY years and for as long as I can remember, she's always been a true country girl... James seems to be the perfect complement to her and her style! This private farm nestled in the middle of the gorgeous, Pennsylvania countryside made for such a beautiful location to really draw in the country feel. As they celebrated throughout the evening with their wonderful family and closest friends, everyone was pleasantly surprised with a special, live performance by the Tommy Guns Band! 

Congratulations, you two! We absolutely loved being there to celebrate your new beginning as a family!

Kelly + Nathan | Engaged https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/6/kelly-nathan-engaged I can't say enough about these two... Kelly & Nathan are one of those couples you'd love to get to know. They are just so easygoing and have such a passion for life. We had so much fun during this engagement session learning a little more about them and their lives! As recent graduates of Penn State University, they have lots of fun exciting things coming up - like new jobs and, well, a wedding! 

Let's just take a minute to talk about that ring! Not only is it gorgeous in itself (well done Nathan), but when they told me it holds diamonds from Kelly's grandmother's earrings, it added so much more to the beauty!

As we drove around to different locations, Kelly knew that she wanted a gorgeous field with dreamy, golden sunlight. When you're working with natural light, you're always at the mercy of Mother Nature - but I'd say she decided to cooperate quite nicely!

Congratulations Kelly & Nathan! We're so excited for all that your future holds and can't wait for your wedding this September!

Devin + Tom | Caldwell Consistory Wedding https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/5/devin-tom-caldwell-consistory-wedding Devin + Tom | Caldwell Consistory Wedding

Before making the switch to full-time photographer, I often ran out of time for some of the things I now love to do - one of those being these blogs! I truly hated missing out on featuring our awesome weddings, but I'm thrilled to [finally] be able to be able to blog Devin and Tom's Caldwell Consistory wedding! And what better day to do it than on Devin's birthday, of course!

Special thanks to these incredible vendors...

Looking Back on 2015 https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2016/1/looking-back-on-2015 Hello, 2016!!

As we say goodbye to 2015, we like to take a look back at all that we've been able to experience and enjoy by sharing some of our favorite photos from our own personal collections. From long road trips to Colorado to short drives around our hometown in good old Pennsylvania, we've been fortunate to capture some interesting and beautiful moments. It's hard to sum up our whole year with such a small collection of photos, but these are definitely a nice representation. Please enjoy some of our personal favorites from 2015 and help us welcome the new year!

Sierra + Erik | The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs Wedding, Chester Springs PA https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2015/9/sierra-erik-the-washington-at-historic-yellow-springs-wedding-chester-springs-pa Sierra + Erik | Married Friday, August 14th, 2015 

This wedding is so near and dear to our hearts. Over the past few years we’ve truly gotten to know Sierra & Erik and one thing that is for certain is how obvious it is that they were meant for one another. These two have such a unique relationship that everyone strives for. They so effortlessly complement one another and are truly each other’s best friend. Just ask anyone who knows them!

One of our favorite elements from this wedding (besides the couple themselves, of course) is how they incorporated so many details that allowed their personalities to shine through. Erik is an extraordinary artist that specializes in silkscreen and letter press prints, which made their handmade invitation suite and signage scattered throughout the wedding even more perfect. The mix of mismatched navy bridesmaid dresses & Sierra’s mustard yellow shoes were to die for! Such a perfectly, creative couple!

It has been such a pleasure getting to know these two and watching their relationship develop into what it is today.  We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture Sierra & Erik’s big day in August. Please enjoy this small glimpse into their wonderful wedding day at the stunning Washington at Historic Yellow Springs.

 

Congratulations, Sierra & Erik!

Nikki + Mike | Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Church Wedding, Elysburg PA https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2015/7/nikki-mike-queen-of-the-most-holy-rosary-church-wedding-elysburg-pa Nikki + Mike | Married Saturday, June 27th, 2015 

We are so excited to be able to present Nikki & Mike’s gorgeous wedding day! These two were just incredible to work with. Even with the rain pouring down, Nikki’s easygoing outlook on the situation proved that she wasn’t going to let it ruin the day. She was focused on marrying the man of her dreams and having fun with family and friends.. and that’s exactly what they did.

You get to learn so much about couples and their wedding party when you’re with them for almost 10 hours straight! From the moment we walked in to greet them, it was pretty clear this group was going to be a ton of fun. The groomsmen were a riot and could instantly make anyone laugh (this definitely came in handy during portraits)!  There wasn’t a moment during the reception where we didn’t see them all dancing or trying to sneak in a few selfies. Something we really admired about both Nikki and Mike is how much their families truly mean to them. This was made evident during a touching moment when Nikki’s brother, Robby, sang a tribute to their new life together as everyone circled around.

From their beautiful church where they exchanged vows, to the reception where they danced the night away, everything about their wedding day was just lovely. The use of beautiful shades of pale pinks mixed with elements of lace and pearls made for a stunning vintage appeal with a hint of rustic chic added by tying in burlap details.

Nikki & Mike, it was truly an honor to capture your beautiful wedding day! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Congratulations!

Brendan + Heather | Country-Chic Wedding https://www.homiakphotography.com/blog/2015/5/murraywedding Heather + Brendan | Married Saturday, May 9th, 2015 

This gorgeous, country-chic wedding took place during a lovely spring day in the bride’s hometown area of Bloomsburg, PA. The warm, inviting sun lit up their beautiful outside ceremony before guests headed indoors for dinner and dancing. Following the ceremony was one of the sweetest moments of the night when their adorable daughter, Charlotte, joined in on the first dance and brought tears to everyone’s eyes. It’s evident the love this couple has for one another – at any given moment, you could look over and find them smiling at one another from across the room or sneaking in a quick kiss. We had such a blast documenting this day for them and couldn't be happier for the newlyweds! Congratulations, Heather and Brendan!
