Farm Wedding in New Hope, PA
September 13, 2014 | Noelle and Bobby
I don’t quite remember exactly when I first met Noelle, but I’m pretty sure it had something to do with a photoshoot! Noelle and I unofficially “met” each other years ago on a little website called Model Mayhem. I was a budding fashion photographer with A LOT to learn, and Noelle was a pint-sized little model who loved photoshoots. A few years (a lot of years perhaps), and some struggling “fashion” shoots later – and Noelle took off for PA where she would meet her husband, Bobby.
Cue YouTube. Bobby was minor YouTube-lebrity (I made that up) and had a pretty well-known comedy channel. Noelle was fan-girling him one day when they connected! Fast forward even more, to about a month after the birth of their beautiful little boy, Finn. It was Christmas morning and all the gift-opening was done, when Bobby said there was one more gift for Noelle in her stocking from Finn. It was a beautiful antique engagement ring that she had her eyes on for weeks – until one day it was sold! She said, “I remembered thinking, ‘whoever gets that ring is so lucky!’ Turns out, it was me!”
A Rainy Wedding Day
They had a beautiful rustic Greenhill Farm wedding in New Hope, PA. They joined together some beautiful rustic details with the kitschy decor of the farm and had a beautiful wedding plan ready to go! Oh, but Mother Nature. It literally rained ALL day – the whole day – except for a brief 20 minute break around sunset when the sky lit up in golds and pinks and we shot the most incredible sunset photos I’ve ever taken. Ever.
After being re-instagrammed from Miss Hayley Paige herself (Noelle’s – and my – gown designer and my hero) we knew we had a hit wedding on our hands, rain or not!
We stopped by the farm the next morning for a few Day After photos (sans rain) before we grabbed a flight back home to Orlando.
And just because I love this… I wanted to share Noelle’s version of meeting me :) “I found KW when I used to model when I was living in Orlando. We did a few amazing photoshoots together which produced some photos that are still some of my favorites. When I heard that she was planning to focus more on wedding photography I was ecstatic because I always felt that she would be the most awesome wedding photographer. Her images really speak to me and I feel that they are so personal and capture the subjects personality perfectly. Plus she has a sense of humor and cracks me up….I was always really comfortable shooting with her. I was lucky enough to help test out wedding photography with KW back in 2009 when we did a Church Street session with a few girls in beautiful wedding gowns and now I’m REALLY lucky to score KW for my own wedding! So excited!”
Noelle and Bobby celebrated their baby-free honeymoon in Roatan, an island off the coast of Honduras.
