We have special connections to all the weddings and the couple’s that we work with, but Kara and Justin’s wedding is very special and unique in so many different ways! I was traveling overseas when Justin and I began communicating back and forth on email about the possibility of working together on their wedding. Before I returned from my trip, he had committed to having Sonya and I shoot their wedding. But that was before Sonya got pregnant with our first child! Thankfully, Sonya didn’t go into labor until the morning after their wedding, and we had for contingency, hired our friend Kayla who usually steps in to come and shoot with us. Justin and Kara do not live in Pennsylvania, but rather somewhere far away in North Carolina. The great distance meant that they had to do not most, but all their wedding planning on phone and email, at least that’s what happened for the wedding photography. I can therefore tell you that we met Justin and Kara for the first time on their wedding day! When we met them, it was like we had been friends for a long time. Time was very limited for pictures and it was aggressively shiny, but we had secured two great locations (we ended up using only one) to shoot bridal portraits in Strausstown, PA, Berks County, the area where Justin grew up. The wedding ceremony was at Zion Blue Mountain Church of Christ, a throw stone away from the little town while their reception took place at the Abraham Lincoln Hotel in Reading, PA. I wouldn’t want to forget to mention that Justin is an award winning race car engineer and is part of the Penske Racing Team. I will  add on this text later. I kind of did this so quickly because I wanted to keep my promise to Kara to post this before midnight, tonight. Please leave a comment at the bottom of the page cos we dig them. Also, please click the facebook like button at the bottom. The page will be automatically published on your wall (that’s good for all of us :)
