Brandon + Courtney – a New Cumberland, PA wedding

The groom in this wedding is my half brother, and of course the bride is my new sister-in-law.  As my gift to them both I told them I would provide the photography for their wedding.  I know what you may be thinking…”well wouldn’t you rather be a part of the wedding?”  The difference in this situation is I only found my father, half brother, and the rest of that side of the family a few years ago.  It’s a long story that is somewhat personal, but the point is I thought it would be better for the people who are in my half brothers life on a constant basis…the people who know him better than I do to be part of his big day.  Not to mention that I love shooting weddings and telling the story of the day more than being in them.  This was my first out of state wedding, and the first time I shot a wedding without seeing the venue’s and locations months before hand, and it was my first time shooting an indoor wedding as well.  I must say that I’ve never felt so welcomed by so many guest.  I met family members I didn’t realize I had, and all the guest were so welcoming and nice and they honestly made me feel that I was a big part of the day.  Many stopped me at the reception to have candid conversations, and sorry to say I even had to cut a few of them short because I was there to do a job first and foremost.  I’d like to wish Courtney and Brandon a wonderful happy life together.  The following images ( more than I usually post to a blog ) is how their day went through my lens.  Enjoy!
