Kids, Weddings

{Jamie & Matt}

Jamie and Matt were married on October 13, 2018 and had their ceremony at Holy Name of Jesus Church and reception at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey.


While driving home after their wedding reflecting on their day, my biggest take away was how much Matt REALLY loves Jamie. It’s so apparent, when she walks into the room he lights up and can’t help but smile. You really get the feeling that these two feel so lucky to have found each other! In a world where we are bombarded with negative stories and media. There really is nothing better than to be there to capture, love and beauty.


Jamie dressed her bridesmaids in dark purple and the groom and groomsmen wore light grey. We chose to do our portraits before the ceremony at the Five Senses Garden in Harrisburg PA.

Though it was a bit chilly that day, we were blessed with some sunshine and no rain. They went with white linens with dark purple chair sashes at their reception with uplighting provided by Mixed Up Productions. The cake was all white buttercream from Sweet Confections.


Thank you Jamie and Matt for allowing me to be there to capture your special day!

Love, Elaine
