Tracy and Chad at th...

I usually get a good feel for a couple and how their wedding will be after I shoot their engagement session. Tracy and Chad’s engagement session was a total blast!  Then wedding day came, and as I was shooting Tracy getting ready and preparing for their ceremony, I really started getting...

Family Photography a...

 When we received a phone call from Maureen two weeks ago, she wanted some family photos taken of her beautiful family as soon as we could get them scheduled.  Unfortunately, we had a string of rainy days so we waited a bit for the  stormy days to pass.  When it was time to smile for the...

Corrina and Chris We...

Corrina and Chris had a beautiful wedding a few weeks ago at Riverview Country Club, with the full Bar None package. We started off the day at the Hampton Inn located in Easton, Pa.  Thats where Trai and I met up with Corrina and the bridesmaids.  Before we left the hotel, Corrina...

Erin and Kevin at Sa...

Erin and Kevin’s day was such a pleasure to photograph.   I was able to photograph Erin in the comfort of her childhood home, then I was stunned by the gorgeous Chestnut Hill Church in Coopersburg. It only got better when we arrived at Saucon Valley Acres for their reception,...

Kristen & Ryan – Bear Creek Mountain Re...

Kristen & Ryan invited us to film their wedding at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Though we have worked there many times this wedding had a character all of its own! I think I had just as much fun editing this one as I did filming it. Such great images and emotions made the story literally tell...

Christine and Christ...

Christine and Christopher’s wedding was at Hideaway Hills, which has just gorgeous photography opportunities! They have everything a wedding photographer could want! Rolling hills, a beautiful pond with a fountain, and an amazing vista.   Not to mention great hospitality during the...

Maternity Photogra...

Its amazing that my job is to capture special events of a couples life.  A few weeks ago, I was asked to capture a very special event in one of my clients lives.  In the past, I have done their engagement shoot, wedding photography and now they are going to have a baby!!  Yay!!...

Lauren & Matthew – Stroudsmoor Terravie...

Lauren and Matthew invited Bar None Weddings to film and photograph their wedding at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA. Their Ceremony was full of energy and that flowed over to the entire wedding! The Rose Garden in Allentown, PA provided a perfect backdrop for their creative session and the dance floor was packed all night, right through the debut of the Same Day Edit film that was wildly cheered by the capacity crowd. What a great wedding to be a part...

Rita’s Surprise Party – Concordville H...

Rita’s family asked us to make a short film covering her surprise birthday party at the Condcordville Hotel. I think we were as surprised as Rita at how much fun stuff was going to...

Paige and Justin at ...

Let me start off by saying, I love weddings at rustic barns!!  I sure was excited to be the photographer for the wedding of Justin and Paige a few weeks ago.  I had done their Engagement Photos last fall, so on their wedding day they were naturals in front of the camera.  Everything...

Heather & Michael – Bermuda Cruise R...

Heather and Michael invited us to shoot Film, Photography and DJ their Cruise Vacation Destination wedding to Bermuda. What a pleasure! Destination weddings aren’t for everyone, but for those with an adventurous streak they are an absolute blast and stunningly gorgeous. It’s not surprising that it’s one of the best parts of our job when we get to travel with awesome...

Lia & Zach – Event Center at Blue Weddi...

  We had such a great time filming Lia and Zach’s wedding. Sometimes you forgot just how gorgeous it truly is in the fall!  Then on top of that, they picked a great venue for their reception.  Caroline and the crew at the Event Center at Blue are phenomenal at what they do.  Their food and hospitality are arguably one the best complete packages in the valley.  Their day was absolutely perfect and one that I wish didn’t have to end.   Other vendors who helped make their day special DJ: Bar None Entertainment Photography: Bar None Photography Hair and Make-up: Shear Impressions & CO Cake: Village Bake...

Dana and Keith at Lo...

 A few weeks ago I had the privilege to take some photos of Dana and Keith at Lockridge Park. They wanted engagement photos and save the date photos for their wedding next summer.  I gave them a few popular photography locations for the shoot and they loved all that Lockridge Park in...

Jamie and Kyle Weddi...

 Despite raining two straight days before their wedding, and a few passing showers the day of, nothing was going to ruin the day for Jamie and Kyle.  Their day went off without a hitch and we were able to capture some beautiful images of their perfect day.  While Jamie was getting hair...

Heather and Michael invited us to shoot Film, Photography and DJ their Cruise Vacation Destination wedding to Bermuda. What a pleasure! Destination weddings aren’t for everyone, but for those with an adventurous streak they are an absolute blast and stunningly gorgeous. It’s not...

Veronica & Jody – Montego Bay Jamaica &...

  Veronica and Jody invited Bar None to provide both their photography and film services for their destination wedding to the great Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica. What an absolute delight is was to join them on this beautiful wedding in this perfect resort. The weather was amazing, the food was so good and the staff was incredibly accommodating. It quickly began to feel like we were part of their new family as we experienced all of the perfect, funny, touching, and happy moments of their wedding day. Showing the film and photos at their local reception at the Event Center at Blue in Easton, PA was the icing on...

Jennifer & Michael – Stroudsmour Countr...

  Jennifer and Michael got married at the serene Woodridge forest at Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA. We have filmed at Stroudmoor before but not at this wooded ceremony site before. It was such a stunning and peaceful place to exchange vows. Despite a persistent and ongoing drizzle though out the day, it was hard to tell under the canopy of the trees. Photography by – Images By Harrison Venue by – The Stroudsmoor Inn Hair & Make up – Anne & Kelly – A.F.Bennett Wedding Gown - True Love Bridal Music by...

Veronica and Jody De...

I’ve been looking forward to Veronica and Jody’s wedding for a number of months.  I’ve never been to Jamaica for a destination wedding, so I was very anxious to get on that plane two weeks ago.   Wow, was it beautiful.  Everything was beautiful about their wedding!! ...

Angel 34 Foundation

   This last week, I had the honor of photographing a charity function for the Angel 34 Foundation.  Its always so inspiring to see people donating their hard earned money and time for charity.  It was a pretty fun time with a band playing great music, a silent auction, delicious...

Meghan & Seth – Skytop Lodge Wedding Fi...

This was the first time I got to film at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos. It is a virtual wedding heaven there with picturesque imagery every where you turn. Beautiful views from Seth’s golf session, Meghan’s relaxing preparations on a porch over looking the golf course, the emotional first look by the bridge and the waterfall, the sunset courtyard for the ceremony, and top it off with a stunning moonscape to end the night with a sparkler send off! Oh yeah, and the personal vows were straight out of a movie and the speeches where heartfelt and utterly hilarious at times. This is the type of wedding that begs to be made into a film,...

Kristen & Joe – Stroudsmoor Country Inn...

Kristen and Joe had a great wedding this summer up at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn at their Ridgecrest facility. If you have never been to a wedding there the view from the ceremony is simply stunning. We try and portray the awe in their film but it is really something you have to see to believe. Complimenting the picturesque ceremony was some beautiful live acoustic singing by Jay Lapp. I was so mesmerized by his rendition of Fields of Gold, even while I was running around like a crazy man trying to get the ceremony set up for filming, that I asked him to record a special version to be used in their wedding film. Jay did not even bat an eye...

Ashley & Peter – Sweetwater Farms Weddi...

Ashley and Peter are literally the perfect couple for shooting a wedding film! They are both so much fun with great personalities and are absolutely stunning when they are walking down the isle! Both their ceremony and reception was held at Sweetwater Farm Bed and Breakfast in Glen Mills.  Its always nice when the couple has everything at one location.  Its a lot stress for both bride and groom and great for the photographer.  The day turned out gorgeous and the reception was so much fun with the band “Imagine” keeping everyone dancing throughout the night. Wedding Band: Imagine Photography: Bar None Caterer: Feastivites...

Jessica & Craig – Stroudsmoor Country I...

Jessica and Craig were such a pleasure to be a able to film. Such a picture perfect couple and what a great day to be a part of. Absolutely some of the best personal vows I have ever heard, and I am a huge fan of personal vows! Everything was perfect down to the most minute details. The location of their ceremony was Ridgecrest. Its always a beautiful ceremony with that great view.  I would highly recommend the Ridgecrest location to anyone looking for an outdoor scenic view during their ceremony.  Their reception was awesome!  They hired the band Mashwork Orange to keep everyone dancing throughout the night.  Well, they sure did just...

Christina & Robert – Woodstone Country ...

Christina and Robert were such a fun couple to be with! They both have such a kind, easy-going spirit. Christina was such a calm bride and really seemed to enjoyed her special day. Robert was just “one of the guys” and very easy to work with.   Christina and Robert got married at Woodstone Country Club. Their ceremony in the beautiful lodge was great and then their reception in the wedding hall rocked the dance floor.  Robert is a fireman in Northampton, so he was able to bring an antique fire truck along with two of the trucks they use when saving lives. And of course, my favorite way to end a wedding, with...

Lisa & Jamie – Citizens Bank Park ̵...

Once I heard where Lisa and Jamie’s wedding was taking place, I knew that I had to make this happen. Meeting with the couple cemented the fact that we were going to make a great film with their help and wonderful enthusiasm. For anyone who is a baseball fan, especially a Philadelphia Phillies fan, you would have loved every minute of their day.  Both bride and groom love the Phillies and they tried to incorporate anything they could of their favorite team into their wedding day.  They got ready in a locker room, their first meet was along first base, the formals were on and in the dugout as well as the Phillies locker room, the...

Paz and Aaron at Edg...

 A rare occurrence happened for Bar None with the last wedding of the year for us.  It snowed all day!!!  We’ve had a flurry or two before, but nothing with accumulation.  Well for Paz and Aaron we certainly had snow, and it was beautiful!  Paz started her day at American...

Paz & Aaron – Bethlehem Winter Wedding ...

One of the greatest live sporting events I have ever been to was a week before this wedding at the Philadelphia Eagles stadium. Just before the game, a perfect snowfall started and lasted throughout the game covering the whole stadium. Afterwords, I was thinking it was a shame that this wasn’t saved for this wedding, because what a beautiful day that would be. Well, somehow, someway, it turned out exactly like that for this wedding, even better actually. Bethlehem is a city with such deep personality, and I think that a snowy winter day fits like a glove. The snow was accenting Hotel Bethlehem as Paz prepared, Aaron’s parents...

Brittany and David a...

Brittany and David hired me to be their wedding photographer next summer at Bear Creek.  Though to get them relaxed in front of the camera, and to have some photos for their save-the-dates, they wanted me to do an engagement session for them.  So we decided to go to Trexler Park in...

Megan and Rich at Ji...

Megan & Rich were married a few weeks ago and I was privileged enough to be their photographer. It was an absolutely perfect day; not too hot – not to cold and I had a beautiful couple to photograph.  The whole day was relaxed and easy going! Megan went to Shear Brilliance in...

Zach & Lia Rece...

DJ package with Ron (Lead Emcee) and Nick (DJ!) Uplights were in house provided by Blue Event Center. What a night! Crowd was fantastic. Packed dancefloor started immediately during cocktail hour. So we happily obliged and Nick started spinning dance tunes right from the start. And the party...

Jenna and Dave at Wo...

 Jenna and Dave were such a fun couple to shoot on their big day! With such a large and enthusiastic bridal party, it was hard not to be in the party-spirit, and the great energy lasted from start to finish. While it may have been a little chilly, we couldn’t have hoped for better...

Lia and Zach’s...

 Lia and Zach are such a sweet couple!  I met them over a year ago at a memorial day party that I was photographing for another client.  Who knew that a few months later, Lia would contact  me about being the photographer for their upcoming wedding.  I was very much appreciative of them...

Paige and Justin Eng...

Besides getting lost and driving around the Kutztown country side (which might I add is beautiful),  what a gorgeous fall day for an engagement shoot!!   Paige and Justin hired me for their wedding next summer, so they wanted some engagement photos for their save-the-dates.  Also, they...

Kensi and Tommy at S...

 Kensi and Tom’s wedding was one of my favorite this year. Both with such kind and sweet personalities, I cannot imagine a couple that is a more perfect match. Watching them together, you could see how deep their love for each other runs, and I feel so blessed that I got to be a part of...

Elizabeth and Mark a...

 Elizabeth and Mark’s wedding day was one of those days that reminded me why I love my job as much as I do.  There was no stress, no craziness, just an overwhelming amount of love, and it was an amazing day to be a part of.  The day was one of those perfect end of summer days.  The...

Amanda & Mark a...

I had the pleasure of shooting Amanda and Mark’s Country Rustic Wedding at the end of September, and I don’t think we could have had better weather! It was a beautifully warm and sunny fall day, which fit just perfectly with their friendly personalities. Between the muscle cars,...

Meghan and Seth̵...

 Meghan and Seth are truly soul mates.  There is no question in my mind about these two and what the future holds for them.  Meghan was full of energy in the morning of her wedding.  She smiled ear to ear, her eyes sparkled with excitement, it was truly contagious.   Seth and his guys,...

Kaltrina & Josh – Riverview Country Clu...

WOW! What a wedding! Every once in a while you have a stunningly good looking couple. And quite often you have a couple that is deep down a truly down to earth, fun as heck, just plain good people. Rarely do you have both… and apparently when you do you get the type of day we had at Riverview Country Club. Vista-like views, whether from the windows of the Grand Eastonian in Easton or over the endless hills at Riverview, are not what you expect when shooting a wedding in eastern PA! Maybe Hawai’i. But Easton? Yes, absolutely. Sometimes you’re running around while the couple is preparing for their big day and you just...

Michelle and Chris – Hotel Bethlehem –...

Sometimes a wedding has so many compelling moments that it becomes impossible to fit the best version of the story into a Highlight Film and this was no exception.  Truly captivating stories  all the way from Michelle getting ready though the reception at the Hotel Bethlehem. Great moments with the dress and her mother and father, hilarious anecdotes about Chris from the priest, and killer speeches after a captivating slideshow and grand entrance. This is a great Highlight Film and just a preview of the feature film. Signature...

Ashley & Peters...

After having shot Ashley’s and Peters engagement session a little while ago, I could see that their love and excitement for each other was just perfect. A perfect match! The way that they steal little glances from each other and have a giddy excitement when next to each other. I...

Corrina and Chris En...

Corrina and Chris chose to have their engagement shoot at a place that was very special to her.  They were originally going to have their engagement shoot at a public location like the allentown fair.  It sounded like a pretty unique idea but it had no meaning to them.  Instead they chose a...

Jacqlyn & Steve – Bear Creek Mountain R...

I had been looking forward to doing this wedding for a while. The couple had told me about all of the unique twists they were going to throw on the Reception, and there were even a few surprises for them courtesy of their Mothers as well! I do admit that the prior Thursday weather forecast had me a bit concerned, but what do weathermen know, it was absolutely perfect out the entire day! The Ceremony at St. Mary’s in Catasauqua had a few unique personal touches as well, with many more family and friends being involved then usual. I thought that was such a great way to personalize their Ceremony. And afterwards at Bear Creek Mountain...

Ashley and Peter Eng...

Engagement shoots are always a good time!  First off, as a photographer in the Lehigh Valley, I love to get out of the Allentown area and do a totally different location for a shoot.  I love new things and new ideas.  Secondly, I love meeting and getting to know the couples before the big...

Timi & Keith – Same Day Edit – Am...

Timi and Keith decided that with him being a farmer with a huge barn on their beautiful farm that it would simply make sense to convert it for their big day into a wedding extravaganza. They absolutely made the right choice! After the ceremony at Friedens Lutheran Church in Kempton, PA, we headed back to the farm. Having seen the barn in full farming mode I was literally stunned to see the transformation that had occurred through the hard work they put into it! And as if to reward them for their hard work they were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous September sunshine the entire day. And this all in turn made our job really easy, all we...

Thinking about a more informal Wedding? Sep12

Thinking about a more informal Wedding?

Food for thought from Tara over at the Mauch Chunk Ballroom blog. (By the way GREAT venue in beautiful downtown Jim Thorpe) We definitely saw a trend this summer for more informal weddings. It’s something we think is neat idea for the right couple. After all, less time sitting for a formal dinner and more time for dancing is never a bad thing! (For the right couple..) So while yes, less formal does have it’s good qualities here Tara makes some great counterpoints why going to the extreme and eliminating “all the rules” can sometimes lead to some unforeseen issues. Bottom line as we always tell our clients is any idea...

Stacy & Michael’s DJ Blog at the Willow...

Carrie and I had a blast at the Orrico wedding. It’s been too long since we’ve been to Willow Tree Grove in Orefield so we thought we’d blog about this wedding. Stacy and Michael’s family & friends came ready to dance. The floor was packed the entire night. One of the many highlights of the night was a groomsman’s rendition of “I will always love you” by Whitney Houston. Hilarious. This reception had it all. A high energy entrance, a dollar dance netting over 300 bucks for the Bride & Groom to spend on their honeymoon, a playful cake cutting,  so many sing-alongs and a ton of dancing. Willow...

Lisette & Noel – Hawaiian Destination ...

Watch Couples Reaction     He says in the beginning of the film “one of the most beautiful places in the world.” I would certainly like to see the other places he is referring to as well. The Big Island in Hawaii affords visitors and locals the ability to swim with the dolphins(or manta rays) right off the beach, zip over 300 ft waterfalls on a wire, and boat right up to a volcano spewing red hot lava straight into the ocean. The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is the perfect place to enjoy the more majestic beach scene, and Lisette and Noel did just that. The stunning beachside ceremony was live-streamed to far distant...

Introducing Digital ...

The other day I was packing up my stuff to move into my new place, and it became clear to me that I had accumulated a lot of junk.  And that I would have to throw out a great deal of it before it was all said and done. When it came to my box of DVDs, the decision was fairly easy. Though I had...
