Kelsey + Andy | A Fiorellis Wedding

Fiorellis Peckville PA Wedding | Jordan DeNike Photography

Kelsey + Andy are married! I've known Andy since 8th grade and he is by far one of the nicest and most down-to-earth people you will ever meet. I really don’t think I’ve ever seen him in bad mood!! Kelsey is absolutely his perfect match and she’s one of those people who always has a smile on.. And has a great smile at that!!! Just look at the photos of her before the ceremony and how happy she was! They’re some of my favorite bridal portraits! These two are such a sweet couple and were honestly so easy to photograph. I LOVED the blush bridesmaid dresses and I’m pretty sure their wedding cake from Community Bake Shop is my favorite one I’ve seen yet - LOOK at those flowers from Rosette Floral! I gasped! Haha. Here are a few favorites from their wedding at Fiorelli’s last month.

Lindsey + Ryan | A Montdale Country Club Wedding

In early July I was lucky enough to celebrate with Lindsey + Ryan at the beautiful Montdale Country Club as they said "I do." Not only are these two a stunning couple, they truly have personalities to match. They're down-to-earth, their happiness is contagious and it's so obvious how in love they are. We met up last fall for their engagement session on one of the prettiest fall days so I’m thrilled we lucked out with amazing weather (and a sunset) yet again. I also think Lindsey may be my first bride who wore a dress with pockets but I hope she isn’t the last.. Because just look at how beautiful it was!! Here are a few favorites from their wedding day this summer.

Lindsi + Dave | A Mountain Top Maternity Session

Wilkes Barre Scranton PA Summer Maternity Session

I first met Lindsi + Dave at a wedding I was shooting while pregnant with Rosie.. A few years later, after shooting an anniversary session for them last fall, I get to see + photograph them right on the cusp of becoming parents. How cool is that? This session was rescheduled and changed so much for all of the rain we’ve been having lately but we decided to go for it and I’m so thrilled we did. First off, how amazing does Lindsi look? She is totally glowing and I kept telling her she just looks like she was meant to be pregnant because she looks so good!! Haha. Their first born, Tank, had to join us of course and I never complain when someone wants to bring their pet ;) These two are so positive that being around them just puts you in a better mood. I loved getting to shoot their maternity session for them near their home in Mountain Top and I can’t wait to meet that baby girl!!

Casey + Nate | Constantino’s Clarks Summit PA Wedding

Casey + Nate were married at the beautiful Constantino's in Clarks Summit. It was my first wedding at Constantino’s so I was really looking forward to shooting there for the first time and seeing the beautiful new event space. Everything for Casey + Nate’s wedding took place on site.. From the gorgeous (and, um, huge!) bridal suite, to the outdoor ceremony location + the big and bright reception area, their wedding did not disappoint. Chippy White Table supplied the prettiest rentals (those chairs! And those blue goblets!) while Monzie’s Floral did the blush + cream bouquets.. I love when I get to work with such sweet + talented vendors!

Casey + Nate were married under the warm June sun and while it may have been 90, humid + super buggy the smiles never left their faces and they were truly radiating happiness all night long. I mean, wait until you see her bridal portraits! Have you seen a happier bride? This is why I do what I do.. To document genuine smiles and so much love. I'm so honored to have been a part of C + N’s wedding.. Enjoy a few favorites from their day!

Miranda + Kyle | Tunkhannock PA Summer Wedding

Scranton PA Wedding Photographers Sunflower Wedding Photos_0001.jpg

When Pennsylvania meets California by way of Arizona.. A few weeks ago Miranda + Kyle were married on her family's land in Tunkhannock, PA surrounded by family + friends from around the US. It was a warm relaxed setting in the middle of the country with their dog Dodge, as well as other family dogs, roaming around and greeting guests the entire ceremony. My favorite part of their day was Dodge greeting them at the altar + hanging out during vows =) These two are adventurous, family people to the core + I think their wedding day was such a true reflection of that. It says so much about a couple when family + friends traveling thousands of miles from both California and Arizona to celebrate their marriage. What an honor it was to be a part of their day! Enjoy some favorites from Miranda + Kyle's sunny + summery wedding!

A Summer Family Session

A Summer Family Session

Scranton PA Family Photographer Jordan DeNike

The sweetest family was in visiting from DC for a few weeks and I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with them for some summer family photos last week. Their little girl Throop is turning one soon which made it SO fun + special to be able to capture this time in their lives. I only shoot a few family sessions a year, and rarely during the business that is summer wedding season, but I may have to make more exceptions because I just LOVE how these turned out =) This is the best little age for babies, such a good time of year for photos and these three just made my job far too easy. Here are some favorites from their summer session!

Katie + Russ | A Summer Lake Engagement Session

Crystal Lake Scranton PA Summer Engagement Session

Last week on the first day of summer I met up with Katie + Russ for their engagement session at both Newton Lake and Crystal Lake. I truly think I lost count on how many times we had to reschedule because the weather just did not want to cooperate with us!! But ohhhh was it worth the wait! First off, how stunning do these two look? This was one of those engagement sessions that felt super refreshing not just because of how great they looked or how perfect the warm summer weather was but for how comfortable they are together and how excited you can feel they are to be getting married. They were SO easy to be around which made it that much easier to capture their love. Here are a few of my favorites from Katie + Russ’s warm summer lake engagement session!

Alex + Pete | A Classic Spring West Chester Wedding

 A Classic Spring West Chester Wedding | Jordan DeNike Photography

Alex + Pete. Where do I even start with these two? I knew Alex from when we were younger and took dance together, her mom was also my gym teacher in elementary school!, so when she inquired with me a few years ago I was SO excited to reconnect and be a part of her West Chester wedding. I met her + Pete for a consult and knew it was meant to be when they wanted to shoot their engagement session at Longwood Gardens. When I think of Pete I think of how he looks at Alex. He truly looks at her as if she’s the only person in the room and together they fit SO well so it’s no surprise that their Longwood Gardens engagement session (view that here!) from last spring is one of my favorites to date. They are so comfortable + sweet together - Alex has the best laugh and Pete makes her laugh nonstop! - and it’s so completely evident how in love they are and how happy they are together.

The morning of their wedding I met with Alex first who was so calm and relaxed. When I met with Pete he was pretty quiet, focused.. And when I asked if he was nervous, since he’s normally outgoing, he said, “I think it really just hit me, I’m getting married!!!”. Alex gave him a handwritten book complete with every reason she wanted to marry him and every sentimental date in their relationship. When Pete cried during opening his gift (can we talk about how sweet?!) I knew his reaction to her walking down the aisle would be even better.

Their entire wedding day it rained.. Except for right as we arrived to their venue, Penn Oaks Golf Club, to shoot portraits. What was left in its wake was the dreamiest fog that created the best backdrop and really made the lush greenery + dusty blue bridesmaid dresses pop! Some of my favorite details from their day included her gorgeous bouquets that were each wrapped with ribbon adorned with a line of their first dance written in calligraphy, Pete’s reaction to first seeing Alex, their first dance and lastly their best friends’ maid of honor + best man speeches before dinner. I can’t say enough good things about Alex + Pete. At one point I told Pete how accommodating he was and he said something along the lines of “well, I consider you a friend now!” which is something I will always remember and truly speaks to their genuine + down-to-earth demeanor as a couple. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this beautiful spring wedding in West Chester a few weeks ago!
