Maddie + Jimmy | If not Jesus, then Jimmy

You may remember a post from a little while back, about Maddie + Jimmy and their downtown Harrisburg engagement session!! Well, now we are officially at Part 2 of their love story with Philter: The Wedding Day!!!!

These two tied the knot in a full mass ceremony at Holy Name, in front of family + friends, and, guys, a whole lot of love was shared. Maddie was convinced that she was not cut out for marriage. In fact, she was looking into dedicating her life to the Catholic church when Jimmy walked into her life. While I don’t think either of them would argue that Jimmy has stolen her heart, I think he certainly has a chunk of it and it became clear to Maddie that this was the plan for her life. The two of them lead a wonderful life in Nashville, TN, and they’re sweetest FREAKING couple that has ever existed.

There is not much more I can say, but there is a LOT I can show you….

And there you have it, folks. The best day ever.

Ben + Beth | A Fairytale in Hershey

Beth + Ben are one of our sweetest couples, kind of the Hermione + Ron of Philter: Beth’s a gorgeous, brilliant woman with the clearest, sweetest eyes, and Ben is a goofy, hilarious redhead with a heart of freaking gold. They had a sweet ceremony at Historic Acres of Hershey, which, while not the Hogwarts of Central PA, definitely captured the nature of their tender relationship.

Ceremony Goodness

Reception stuff

We had a blast with this amazing couple, and we can’t wait to see where life takes them next!!!!!!

Maddie + Jimmy | Harrisburg Capitol Engagement Session

Sometimes you just meet someone and you know, you know? Maddie and Jimmy are those types of people-- I met Maddie when I was interviewing babysitters for my little love back in 2016. I needed someone to hold down the fort while I shot weddings and my husband was working, and in stepped Maddie, all blonde and lovely and bubbly and everything I could ever ask for in a babysitter. Some of you may recognize her as your child's teacher at Holy Name, everyone else will see her smile and just know that she's gotta be one of the sweetest people ever. In Jimmy, Maddie's found the love of her life. He's supportive and HILARIOUS and the perfect ying to her yang. 

First we headed to the Capitol in Harrisburg. The area surrounding the building has several interesting textures, patterns, and pops of color perfect for a summertime engagement session. If there's anything I can tell you to expect from this session, it's lots of laughter, love, and a whole lot of sweetness <3 It's a....Graham Slam, if you will ;)

FUN FACT: Maddie and Jimmy's first kiss (sorry mom!) was after they both sloppily ate some 3B's ice cream, so naturally we decided to get ice cream at 3Bs. BEST CHOICE EVER.

We ended the session during glorious golden hour. A field nearby the Philter studio is the perfect backdrop for ooey-gooey lovey photos, and this couple did not disappoint. 

M + J, I can't even wait for your wedding. It's going to be incredible!!!!!
