Brooke + Matt Engaged! |Mount Carmel | Williamsport PA Wedding Photographer

Brooke + Matt Engaged | Mount Carmel | Williamsport PA Wedding Photographer

When I first met Brooke and Matt it was raining… ok so it was raining for like a month straight at that point. However, on that particular day…. it wasn’t supposed to rain. Boy was Mother Nature having second thoughts. We both got out of ours cars and the rain was just slow enough to shoot a little bit. The fog made for some awesome backdrops… All of a sudden my SD card read error… I didn’t think anything of it so I switch to my back up. Continued shooting but then the rain was coming down harder so we ended it.

Got home and slipped my SD card into my computer… I could see the images but I couldn’t pull them off! CARD CORRUPTED! UGH… DEVASTATION. I promise y’all those images were great. Here are a few from that day that I did get!

 

I ended up messaging Brooke to let her know that we needed to reshoot! She agreed… I am so glad that she did. We ended up at Roaring Creek Preserve and that place was amazing! From the little patch of tall grass that I found, to the road with the most beautiful green trees and a big ol’ lake. I won’t keep y’all any longer… Check out Brooke and Matt’s Roaring Creek engagement session.

Thank you both for entrusting me with your engagement session, getting to know you both and shooting your wedding! What an honor its been. Congratulations Brook + Matt!

What’s happening with TPP |September 2018 | PA + Destination Wedding Photographer

What’s happening with TPP |September 2018 | PA + Destination Wedding Photographer

Hi friends! Can you believe that it’s September already? Ok maybe it felt like August was going to stick around forever!!! It really did! But now we are here and fall is right around the corner so I wanted to give you a sneak peak into what is happening this month and a little preview of October! 

Weddings:
This month I have two special brides getting married and I am so happy to be a part of their special day.

September 8th

Lonnie Davis and David Frantz are tying the knot in David’s sister’s back yard over looking wildflowers, cornfields and rolls of hay… imagine a beautiful mountain backdrop. Y’all doesn’t that sound so dreamy? To this southern country girl… I am in my glory! 2018-06-25_0001
Following their wedding,  Lonnie and David are celebrating with friends and family at the Gamble Farm Inn, an old historic Mansion centered in Jersey, PA. They will be dancing the night away to music accompanied by DJ Cory. I cannot wait for their day to come, Lonnie deserves all the happiness in the world and I think after waiting 19 years for love with David… it was well worth the wait. 2018-06-25_0002

September 15th
Trinda and Jonny will say I do on Trinda’s family farm in Watsontown, Pa. I am absolutely in love with the land! The farm has a blueberry field, two small ponds and of course tall grass. All of which are my favorites and we actually took some images utilizing the blueberry field and tall grass for their engagement photos! Talk about being in love, these two love birds ceremony location is going to over look a big… beautiful pond. PA + Destination Wedding Photographer
Their reception is going to be in the same location, giving off the best country, rustic vibes. I literally love this couple and I am so lucky that they chose to me to photograph their big day. To finish off their big day they will have a sparkler exit that I am sure is going to light up the night sky. 2018-08-30_0001

Rounding out the rest of the month, I will be second shooting in Bloomsburg, PA working alongside an amazing video + photo team September 22nd. September 29th I will be shooting alongside Maegan Lutz from Maegan Lutz Photography. I am so excited that I cannot contain my excitement.

Then comes Baby Joe part 2|Maternity |Sammi + Tony

Y’all get ready for all the feels

Back in April, Sammi and Tony invited all of their friends and family to Sammi’s parents house to find out the gender of Baby Joe… if you missed that blog you can find it here and if you don’t want to read it… spoiler alert, IT’S A GIRL! Their gender reveal was to the theme “What will she/he Bee?” Get it? A Bee theme. cutest ever and I really think you should just check out the blog anyways. 

Fun Facts

  • Sammi took 6 pregnancy tests just to be sure
  • Baby Joe’s nursery will be pink and floral (umm yea, someone come decorate my bedroom lol ) 
  • Her craving are never one specific – sounds like a girl (can’t make up their mind)
  • Tony’s morning breath has really bothered her since becoming pregnant
  • The best part about being pregnant is feeling

Maternity Session |Lycoming College

When deciding on a location, Sammi wanted a field of tall grass and well the weather wasn’t having it. Even though I had a backup plan, I really wanted to find some beautiful white pillars to compliment her dress. The ideas  had in my head for making her look like a queen needed to be executed in the right location. I asked in a local photographer community where I could find pillars and someone suggested Lycoming college and oh boy, or should I say “oh girl” it was perfect. The day of her session the clouds opened up and let a whole lot of rain came down. BUUUUUUT it was almost like it was perfectly planned because it stopped a few minutes before Sammi’s session. Let me just say, Sammi made those pillars look amazing.2018-06-26_0001

Downtown|Rooftop

After the beautiful session at Lycoming College we headed downtown to Center City. Stopped at the Brickyard well because they have the pretty sparkling lights and right across the street is a semi-gorgeous fire escape but it has a brick wall… HAHA see what I did there. I only took a couple of shots here because you could definitely tell Sammi was getting tired. 2018-06-26_0003

After hanging out in a beautiful alley way, we headed to a roof top about a block away. But it didn’t matter the location I chose, Sammi and Tony straight killed their session. Honestly, I could photograph them every day and it would never get old.

I cannot  wait to meet your baby girl and capture the most precious moments in all of your lives. August cannot come fast enough but until enjoy these last few weeks just as two! Love you guys! – Tash

2018-06-25_0003Pre-Story| How Lonnie + I became friends

Where can I even begin with this beautiful love story, I’ve known Lonnie for 5 years. Lonnie was referred to me by a friend for engagement pictures with my now husband, Corey. She was the most sweetest person I knew in Williamsport, very insightful and a a life cheerleader. Seriously, she lit a fire under my butt and help me find my way back to photography. Crazy how things come full circle! In the past the past 5 years, I have seen Lonnie grow the courage to leave unhealthy relationships, trust people where trust shouldn’t be given and finally find love where love was 17 years ago. We would stay up to all hours of the night deep in conversation about how he prince would one day come to her rescue and take her away from all the trouble in her life. This year she finally marries her prince and I am so glad I get to witness it first hand.

Where it all began…

Remember when you were in high school and talking to the opposite sex was like the shy thing to do and you really had to muster up the strength to even get an “Hi” out. Well thats how Lonnie felt toward David and vice versa. They both had a high school crush on each other but neither of them could say so. Along came a “friend” and swooped David up right under lonnie and she never got the chance to tell him how she truly felt.

2018-06-25_0001It was fate!

After 17 years apart, David was going through Mr Neufer’s (Lonnie Neufer’s) facebook page and found Lonnie. As Lonnie recalls “He added me and I send him a message, we texted for 9 hours that night and all day the next day.” They had their first date at Hull’s Landing and from that moment on they knew they were meant for each other. 

Engagement Session

We through around some great location ideas for their engagement session. We went from the idea of a winery, a city theme and a park, the park won. WHY? Oh because its the same park where they will marry each other. As we photographed their love, reminisced about the “good ol’ days” and how amazing their wedding is going to be. With their children by their side, they are set to wed September 8th, 20182018-06-25_0002

2018-06-25_0004congrats

I cannot wait to watch you both say I do in September! – Tash

Ceremony | I DO’s 

I overheard that Courtney + Dylan were planning on having their ceremony outside until the rain decided to grace its presence on their beautiful day. Instead, they decided to have their wedding inside Mountain View Fellowship church and what a cute little ceremony it was, accompanied by beautiful white and red roses on the floor leading to their I do location.

MAY 2018 GOALS | Pennsylvania Photographer

May 2018 Goals | Pennsylvania Photographer

How did we get to May already? This year has been true blessing in every way and I couldn’t have done it without all of you and your referrals. With that being said lets take a look back on 2018 so far.

Tasha Puckey Photography

Can I just be honest here, I never in my wildest dreams thought that 2018 would be my crushing year, I figured that I would just coast along this year and continue education. Boy was I wrong, God heard my prayers and said “Let’s do this together.”Tasha Puckey PhotographyIn January, the coldest month in PA I had two portrait sessions,  participated in a beautiful winter styled wedding in Lebanon, PA and styled maternity sessions in Williamsport, PA. I had so much fun meeting new creatives and make friends along the way. Some of my favorite images from my sessions in January, I would love to totally go back so I can relive these all over again . I love what I do and that it’s not a job to me.

As we head into February, my goals were a little sketchy!  I wanted to book a Destination wedding and I thought I had it in the bag but life had a different story and thats ok because sometimes things are meant to be. However, I amped up my blogging and so excited because there is so many things that I want to show and so many beautiful things that I have captured along the way.  One of my main goals in my personal life was to change the images in my home, they definitely needed updated. What better month to do that than February. These beautiful/handsome faces belong to my children and they were also the faces of our valentine cards to our family. If you want to check out my other February goals you can do so here….

Then March happened! I loved March… Okay, I may be a little bias because March is my birthday month but seriously had the best time. A beautiful family from the church I attend adopted a little boy they call Samuel last year. Heather and I met through her cousin Libby, I mean we would have known each other much sooner if I weren’t such an introvert lol. She was looking for family images for the adoption agency and I couldn’t just let that go. I stepped up to the plate and they looked amazing. After there adoption was finalized in December and they were able to bring them home, I offered Heather and her family a family session because well you know… they needed updated images. They are the cutest family and the most humbled and definitely blessed.Tasha Puckey Photography

March wasn’t stopping with all the love in the world. A few photographer besties and myself were planning a Boho Styled Wedding shoot with some pretty awesome vendors. I couldn’t wait until our dreams became a reality. March 29th was the best day so far of 2018. Here is a few images from the shoot. I really cannot wait for Wedding season to start… eeeeeeeeek just one more week! Tasha Puckey Photography

April rocked my socks with my “Pay What You Can Mini sessions. They were sold out in a week and the first time ever. Also in the month of April I was featured twice not The Knots “How He Asked” blog and two more features are not the way this year. So exciting

Sorry not sorry for taking you on a beautiful trip down memory lane!

This month starts wedding season and I am so stoked about this. May 19th kicks it off for me. The following week I will get the chance to second shoot with another local photographer on her Friday evening wedding! Yesss! So I won’t keep you too long.

Why YOU should get in the picture | Pennsylvania Photographer

Why you should get in the picture | Pennsylvania Photographer 

You’ve contemplated hiring someone to take new family photos but you don’t like how you look in your images. There are a million and excuses that you can make as to why you don’t want to be in pictures. Tasha Puckey Photography

  • your stomach is too big
  • you have wrinkles
  • a double chin
  • not photogenic
  • we can do it next year
  • having a bad hair day
  • my make up doesn’t look right
  • I don’t have anything to wear
  • we don’t hang pictures in our house

 

We all make these excuses, I know I have. My favorite? I don’t get in front of the camera, thats why I’m behind it. Can I get real and raw with you? Pictures are extremely important, totally worth it in the end and here’s why

Tasha Puckey Photography

Remembering Important momentsTasha Puckey Photography

When you are 85 and you are rocking your grandchildren, imagine yourself telling them them the story about how their Grandfather proposed to you. You can’t remember the exact details or even the words but your image show the emotion of the day. As you are looking through those images, memories flood back, the smells return and you know exactly what was said and how it was said. This is another way that dementia patients remember their lives… through images. You only get one life… document it

Remembering your ancestors

Tasha Puckey PhotographyI can’t tell you what any of my relatives past my grandmother look like. Maybe because my family were so poor that they couldn’t  afford to wear the shoes that were on their feet. I don’t know much about then except that they lived on a farm and my Great Grandmother died when my Grandma was 3 years old. I know for me, I would’ve love to see our family barn, look at those wrinkles,  tattered clothes dirty hands that belonged o my Great-Grandfather.
Getting your I,ages updated every year is a great way to have future generation look back and remember the way things used to be and the people that are in your family. Don’t leave your family wondering who you were and what you looked like… Get in the picture!

Telling Stories.

As photographers we are storytellers, we can capture the emotions of a picture and make it timeless. From engagement session to family sessions, it all tells a story. You want to be in these stories that are captured through the lens. Even if it’s through the lens of your phone, I urge you… I encourage you to live in the moment and get in the frame with your family.
