About a month ago, I did a bridal session with Julie, but I haven't been able to blog them until now because that would have ruined the surprise for her husband-to-be, Clint. So I know Julie has been anxiously awaiting a sneak peek of her shoot, and I couldn't wait to share. Julie and Clint's wedding took place on Saturday, September 6th, and it was just perfect. That blog - and the blog of their rehearsal/rehearsal dinner - will be coming soon! :-)
But back to Julie's bridal portraits...we started the day at her bridesmaid Natalie's house. Natalie had the coolest bench, which she actually made herself! It was an awesome spot for a few portraits.
This one reminds me of a magazine ad. Julie pulled off the serious look really well.
After a few indoor shots, we headed to Nissley vineyards. I love the red backdrop here, especially with red berries in Julie's bouquet.
Probably my favorite close-up of the day.
We played around in the vineyard.
Julie is such a classic beauty.
We had gorgeous afternoon light.
I was loving the under-the-veil shots.
This is one of my faves! I loved all the buttons down the back of Julie's gown.
And the train was beautiful. I love sparkles!
To Julie, I had a such a great time doing your shoot, and I'm so happy you will have all these awesome images in your glamour gown! I hope you like them as much as I do - you are truly beautiful - inside and out. Love, Kris
On Saturday, August 30th, Scott and I photographed the intimate wedding of our friends, Rick and Beth. Scott has known Rick for almost 6 years now, and through them I have gotten to know Beth, who is the biggest sweetheart you could meet.
To Rick and Beth, it was really special to both of us to have the privilege of documenting your wedding day....especially with our baby girl in tow. :-) We hope you like the sneak peek of your pictures! Love, Kris & Scott ps - big thanks to everyone who helped us out with Elsa that day!
The day started with a small ceremony at Beth's Aunt's beautiful home in Hughesville.
Beth was looking as beautiful as I had ever seen her! I loved that she was dancing around and having fun for my camera!
Here Beth's Mom and two brothers anticipate Beth's walk down the staircase.
This was her first glimpse at her soon-to-be husband, Rick.
They were married by the Mayor of Williamsport.
After the ceremony, we had plenty of time for some of our modern portraits. This is one of my favorites.
They walked through the fields....and then....
Some crickets and grasshoppers decided to make a home in Beth's wedding dress. It was too funny, so I couldn't resist posting this "behind-the-scenes" image of Scott helping Rick get them out.
Since we got an engagement picture like this, we had to get a wedding day one too.
Love this one!
Their wedding cake was so cool! I stood on a chair to shoot it straight down, and I love how it turned out.
Rick got Beth pretty good, but it's okay because she saved some cupcakes and got him back later. ;)
A cute moment of laughter during their first dance.
And another great moment on the dance floor. I'm not sure what is going on, but I think it's adorable!!!
Beth and her Mom show off their moves...
A wonderful time was had by all. Congrats again Rick and Beth!
On Saturday August 16th, Scott and I had the incredible honor of photographing Avery and Justin's wedding at Wynding Brook Golf Club
in Milton. It was such a perfect day - we couldn't have asked for better weather for an outdoor wedding, and we had tons of time for pictures because Avery and Justin decided to see each other before the ceremony. The pictures from that moment are my favorite from the whole day!
Avery & Justin, thank you for the opportunity to document your wedding day. You have hearts of gold, and after meeting your wonderful families, it is easy to see where you get that from. We wish you all the happiness in the world as you start this next chapter as husband and wife. Congratulations and enjoy the little preview of images! We love you! Kris & Scott
We started the day with the guys at Avery & Justin's house. Justin was looking very GQ.
And his bride, Avery...I have one word. STUNNER.
For Avery & Justin's "first look", we put Justin down a wooded path, and we then had Avery walk up to him and tap him on the shoulder. Scott focused on Justin...
And I focused on Avery. It was such an emotional moment, and we got so many awesome images.
Then Avery and Justin exchanged gifts - even the bag was perfect for photos!
Everyone liked getting all of the pictures done before the ceremony. What a bunch of hotties!
After the family and wedding party pictures, we spent some time with Avery and Justin alone.
Despite having to walk down the aisle in just a few minutes, they were so relaxed.
The ceremony took place on the golf course. What a setting!
This is Scott getting creative...it's always so fun to look at each other's work once we get home.
Instead of a Unity Candle, Avery and Justin took some flowers from the altar arrangements and presented them to their families. Here Avery is giving flowers to Justin's Grandma.
And here Justin is giving flowers to Avery's Mom, who was also the Matron of Honor. This is one of my favorite pictures - I love the moment.
The first kiss...
We had to get a golf cart portrait...this was the only posed picture we did post-ceremony. Then it was time to party!
The first dance.
Yet another amazing moment of the day. Justin surprised Avery by singing to her, and here she is singing back to him.
I love this one because the woman smiling on the right is Justin's Mom.
Scott got some awesome "zoomer shots" as we call them. He zoomed as he took the photos to get the lights to look like that.
Congrats again Avery & Justin!
It's amazing how life works...that is the subject of the email I first received from Avery, just 5 days after giving birth to our daughter. Avery was one of the nurses who helped take care of us after Elsa arrived on May 29th, but at the time, I had no idea she was planning a wedding and she had no idea we were photographers.
Tomorrow I am going to do a massive blog post with tons of pictures of Avery and Justin's wedding from start to finish, but first I had to share this story. Because as I am working on their photos today, I can't help but think about how we met. Below is a paraphrased version of the email I first received from Avery...
"So, the other day I am sitting at work (Evangelical Labor & Delivery), when I notice all the nurses surrounding a computer looking at the most gorgeous pictures in the world. I go over to check it out, and I see my favorite couple Scott & Kristine...I'm sure by this point you are wondering who I am... :) I am the student that walked you down to your car. I absolutely fell in love with your photograph style and attention to detail. I have been on your site several times just to look through all the pictures! Your style is exactly what I am looking for! I am sure you two are enjoying every moment with Elsa, so I didn't know if you were taking a break from photography, but I would be overjoyed if you would be our photographers for our wedding. If you would be available on August 16, 2008, and interested in shooting our wedding, please contact me when you get the chance. I love how God brings people together! Nothing is by chance! I hope Elsa is doing well. I am sure the family is spoiling her every chance they get! God bless!"
Scott and I had decided we weren't going to book any more weddings for 2008, because we had 10 coming up and wanted to enjoy the time with our new baby girl. But of course upon reading that email, we immediately made an exception. Avery is right about God bringing people together. She was a part of the best day of our lives, as we welcomed Elsa into the world -- and now we were a part of hers, as she married her soul mate, Justin.
To Avery and Justin, you two are absolutely perfect together, and we are so honored to have been your wedding photographers. We can't wait for you to see your real blog post tomorrow! For now, we hope you like the mini sneak peek. Much love, Kristine and Scott
This past weekend I did a bridal session with Julie, whose wedding is coming up on September 6, 2008! First we met at her friend Natalie's house for a few indoor pictures (thanks again Natalie!), and then we headed down to Nissley Vineyards
for the outdoor ones. It was an amazing setting and I can't wait to share more pictures after the wedding takes place.
To Julie, I had at absolute blast with you and your Mom, and I'm so glad that you had a great time too. You are an absolutely stunning bride, and Scott & I can't wait to shoot your rehearsal dinner and of course your wedding in just a few weeks.
To Julie's future husband, Clint, get ready! If Julie looked this beautiful for her pre-bridal session, I can only imagine how gorgeous she is going to look on your wedding day, when she is surrounded by family and friends, and of course the man of her dreams! See you soon! ~Kris
So....since I can't give away Julie's wedding day look, I just chose two pictures that would give a MINI sneak peek. I'll be blogging a bunch more after the wedding. Julie's makeup was done by her friend Amelia, who is an awesome make-up artist. All I can say is WOW lashes!
I love Julie's bouquet...I cropped this image tightly so I wouldn't show too much of her jaw-dropper gown. You'll have to wait another few weeks for that! ;)
On Saturday, August 2nd, I photographed Julie's "Countrypolitan" Bridal Shower at Natural Acres Bed & Breakfast
in Millersburg. It was PERFECT in every way! I can hardly wait to share some images, so I will narrate as I go.
The B & B was located on a 550 acre farm, so the setting was incredibly serene.
The whole day was a surprise for Julie. This is her with her matron of honor, Val, the moment she stepped out of the car.
She was even more surprised to see her future hubby Clint there. He helped Val and the bridesmaids prepare for the shower all day long. I love this moment between the soon-to-be newlyweds....Julie was thanking Clint for being so wonderful as he was about to leave.
The spread of food was amazing, and everyone got these cute ball jar mugs accented with Julie's signature green color ribbon.
The shower took place outside under the trees, and these were the table centerpieces.
Julie's new last name will be Rockey, so this is her "getting rocked"!
Her bridesmaids had "Rock On" t-shirts made. What awesome friends! The back of them said "Julie & Clint" and the date. The big day is September 6th.
Here is the whole gang. Julie is very lucky to have so many amazing women in her life who love her.
Since there were so many people at the shower and not everyone knew each other, each girl took her turn introducing herself to the group and explained how she knew Julie.
It was a really special touch and it made for some heartfelt toasts.
These little beauties are the flower girls.
After everyone had eaten, it was time for gifts. This picture makes me smile - the sun shining down on a tent filled with white paper lanterns, flowers, and PRESENTS - lots of them!
Julie registered at Pampered Chef and got lots of fun things for cooking & entertaining.
This is one of my favorite moments. I love Julie's expression as Wendy and Karen look on.
Val had prepared the "How well does Julie know Clint" game, and it was hilarious.
Not sure if this laughter was related to the "Orange night-thingy from Walmart", but I love Sherry's smile here.
The flower girls were so cute playing together while gifts were being opened, and the Mom in me couldn't resist getting a few pictures.
One of Julie's favorite gifts was a scrapbook that everyone made for her. That comes as no surprise to me, since I know first hand how much she loves pictures!
Julie, I always say that my connection to my clients runs so much deeper than snapping pictures. I love it when a bride becomes a friend, and you have definitely become one to me. I am so happy for you! Love, Kris
On Saturday, June 28th, we photographed Tiffany and Ty's wedding at http://www.theboathouseatsundaypark.com/the_gardens_catering/index.php
in Midlothian, Virginia. I grew up in Midlothian, and Scott and I actually had our rehearsal dinner at "Sunday's" six years ago, so it was truly a special place for us to shoot a wedding. The fact that it is insanely gorgeous was an added bonus!
Tiffany and Ty, we're honored that you chose us to document your wedding day. The two of you, and your families and friends, were a blast and I think the pictures show how much fun everyone had at your wedding. We hope you had a fabulous time in the Dominican, and we hope you like the little preview of a few of our faves. Talk soon! ~ Kris & Scott
I started the day at the hair salon with the girls.
And then I shot some details. Tiffany's veil was beautiful and perfect with her dress.
There is something about red roses against a white gown.
Tiffany was gorgeous. Straight out of a magazine.
And her 5-year old little brother Josh was the cutest thing ever!
Can't forget the groom. Looking good Ty!
Scott got this great shot of Tiffany and her dad walking down the aisle. While I love the ones I got from the front of the aisle, I love this one more because it shows the beautiful waterfront scenery and guests.
A cute ceremony giggle.
And the first kiss. Actually there were several!
It was a HOT day, so the staff brought everyone cold beer to enjoy while taking portraits. I was impressed.
We loved Tiffany and Ty's wedding party. Such a fun group.
With a train like that, I had to blog a full length portrait.
Having a little fun with the rings.
The grand entrance into the pavilion.
And the first dance.
The wedding party cheering them on - what great friends. I love this picture!
Tiffany and her dad seemed very close, and their dance brought me to tears.
The mother-son dance was adorable. Ty even learned salsa dancing just for his mom!
Little brother Josh couldn't wait to cut in - he shared a special dance with big sis and stole the show!
Not to be outdone by Josh, Tiffany's younger sister Ashley gave an awesome toast. It was a tearjerker, with some hilarious moments as seen here.
Then there was a little cake smashing.
And then more dancing, following by a big exit where guests threw birdseed at the honeymoon-bound couple. T & T - congrats and thanks again!
On Saturday, June 21st, we photographed Molly and Brian's wedding. The ceremony took place on the campus of Bucknell - at the beautiful Rooke Chapel, and the reception was held at The Genetti
in Williamsport. It was a gorgeous June day, and everyone had an awesome time celebrating with the newlyweds. We couldn't ask for more!
Molly and Brian, we have to admit that we often felt more like guests at your wedding than your photographers. You are two of the nicest and most genuine people, and we wish you nothing but the best as you begin your life together as husband and wife. Thank you for the opportunity to be such a special part of your wedding day. We hope you are having a blast in San Francisco -- and we hope you enjoy your sneak peek. With love and appreciation ~ Kris & Scott
The guys in front of Rooke Chapel - with the parade of Honda Elements.
Molly looked so beautiful and I loved her dress!
The bridesmaids were stunning too, and the flower girls were too adorable. I love their "attitude" in this shot.
Bond, James Bond. Brian was working the cameras.
And so were the guys - I love this fun shot.
Scott caught this cute expression Molly made at her husband-to-be from the back of the aisle.
This was our first time photographing a wedding at Rooke Chapel. It is an amazing place to shoot - just flooded with natural light.
A tearful moment, with "monkey tissues". My shot is on the left and Scott's is on the right.
Reciting the vows...
And then it was time for some outdoor portraits. Something classic...
Something romantic...we had fun with the under the veil shots.
Then we were off to the reception. Scott got this great ring shot while dinner was being served.
The first dance...
I caught this moment, which is one of our favorites. We love that you can see Brian's mom looking on in the background.
Molly and Brian had a Whoopie Pie cake. Molly couldn't open it, so she improvised. Too cute!
Adorable flower girl number one - love the motion of this shot.
And adorable flower girl number two - they were all over the dance floor!
I love this moment - their smiles say it all.
And this one, it is one of my favorite candid slow dance moments ever - it just radiates love and happiness. Congratulations Molly and Brian!
There is something about a wedding album. Even though ours is a little "old fashioned" - matted images, circular crops, etc. - it is so special to us and we look at it often. It is a Pringle family heirloom. So when Scott and I started Pringle Photography, we decided we wanted to include an album with our all-inclusive package.
After your wedding is over, the photographs and the album (and maybe the dress in a box) are usually the only tangible memories of your most important day. That said, we knew we couldn't offer just any album - it had to be awesome! :-) What makes them so cool? Have a look.
Our albums are genuine leather coffee table style albums featuring a virtually seamless center that lets us design creative cross-page layouts and two-page panoramic spreads.
All images are flush-mounted to hardback pages, giving the album a clean and modern, yet classic look. I am a huge fan of clean lines - no clutter.
Our albums are super chic, yet designed to stand the test of time. When you look through on your 25th wedding anniversary, it should not look dated.
We accomplish this using BIG flush-mounted images...
Simple keyline borders...
And beautiful “less is more” graphic design.
And just like a magazine spread, each page should tell a story.
I love designing albums- it is something I'm really looking forward to when our wedding season starts at the end of June.
To see more, take a look at our main website
. We finally have an "Albums" page that contains album images like those shown above and a slideshow of one design in its entirety. We're trying to get a lot done in the way of site updates before Baby Elsa arrives, so stayed tuned for more. ~K
Last September, Scott and I photographed a VERY special wedding - for Scott's brother, Ben and our new sister-in-law, Shawna. So why am I just now posting their slideshow? Well, pregnancy + growing photography business = too few hours in the day. This is actually the first time they are seeing their wedding photos, other than the few I posted on the blog last fall. I truly cannot wait for them to see this.
If you saw the blog I did last September, then you know that Scott was Ben’s best man and I was Shawna’s matron of honor. We knew that balancing photography with our other “duties” - not to mention having a little fun dancing, visiting with family, etc. - would be challenging, but we were definitely up for it! I mean, when will I ever get another chance to photograph a wedding wearing a bridesmaid’s dress and heels? We can’t take all the credit though. Special thanks go to my dad and brother, who captured the great ceremony shots in this slideshow.
Over the 8 plus years that I have known Scott, Ben has become a good friend, and now he has given me an awesome sister-in-law by marrying Shawna. To capture their wedding day memories was an honor.
To stand beside them as they read their vows was an even bigger honor.
Ben and Shawna, we hope this slideshow helps you relive the magic of that beautiful day. We love you.
