For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

A rekindling experience of love through imagery.

Stephanie and Alex, Sept. 20, 2008 | Wedding Photographer, Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

Still trying to get caught up with everything that happened before my wedding, here are photos from Stephanie and Alex's ceremony Sept. 20, 2008. They had a beautiful day and the red, white and blue theme was SUPER cute! Alex is in the marines and Steph went all out with the decorations.

The ring bearer, and Steph's nephew, Alex. He was TOO cute!!

Lacing her up 5 minutes before she has to walk down the isle! Cutting it a little bit tight on time there girlies! =)

The beautiful bride! She was getting excited...look at her glowing!

Her Dad put the veil over her head. Awww.

Yes! How stinking CUTE are they?!

I loved their dresses! And their head pieces too!

The whole wedding party.

Unity candle...

Notice there are LOTS of pettals on the right side...Steph had a pile under dress at the alter!

I love this church. It's so pretty!

Hugs outside after the ceremony was over. Commence tear flowing now!

The new Mr. and Mrs. Alex and Stephanie Thomason.

This was their idea and a CUTE one at that!

Alex got a fit of giggles during formal photo time...

*sigh* This just melts your heart....

A favorite!


Timeless beauty.

The wedding party plus the ushers....minus a flower girl.

Yes, it was a complete smash!

The her little booties she wore!

The two great catches made at the reception.

First dance.

How can you tell a boy is having a good time??

When his hands are black, he teases you and he's wearing icing on his face!!

Father daughter dance. With her mom in the back ground. Tears were flowing EVERY WHERE! The song didn't help either :P
Alex and Steph, I had a wonderful time photographing your wedding day! It was beautiful and lots of fun! It got me way excited for mine! :D I hope you both are enjoying yourselves in California and being safe! Enjoy your photos and a happy fulfilling life together!

Meet Mike & Jamie | Enagement Photographer, Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

Jamie had contacted me about possibly doing her and Mike's wedding photos Oct. 10, 2009. I was delighted for the inquire, you never know who is going to contact you. I have stuff pop up without warning all the time. They think they want me but weren't sure. What's the best way to prove you are worth it? Take them out for engagement photos! Not only do they get a feel of how you work, who you are and your editing style, but it's also good practice! ;)
Jamie suggested we go to Kyle Lake and take photos there. It was GORGEOUS! Crisp fall day with leaves in full bloom...beautiful bright blue sky with puffy clouds. You couldn't ask for a better day! The day was even more special because Jamie and Mike also celebrated two years together! (Awww :D )

One of my favorites!

Sneaking a peak!

So many pretty leaves!

The colors are just gorgeous :)

Ummm....Hello? FAVORITE!! By far! I even want to hang it on my wall!

For some reason, I like this one. Must be the sky and silhouette...

Jamie's blue eyes are poppin'!

They thought I was nuts when I wanted them to lay in the leaves...yes, I do some crazy things. But I promise to not run you around rampant in your wedding dress...unless you want to of course!

They kept giggling when I asked them to kiss. Then they would make a face. I'm gathering that they aren't huge fans of PDA, unlike Scott and I. :D

The photo resulted in MUCH laughter! I think she was getting excited!!


I hope you both had fun! And you didn't think I was too crazy! :) Enjoy your engagement photos and I hope to see you June 14, 2009! =) It will so be here before you know it! I still can't believe I'm a married woman!

Great Pumpkin

I'm back! I am home from my honeymoon. The week FLEW by but it was lots of fun and HOT beachy weather!
Here are some pictures that I took before I left of all the fall festivities. I need some time to get on top of weddings and my own photo stuff from the honeymoon. Please be patient, my wedding photos will come soon! In the mean time, enjoy the fall photos! (It's a little long, but it's all so pretty!)
Here are some photos from Cooper's Farm Pumpkin Festival!

It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

They had a petting zoo! This little lady enjoyed snorting her oats and making my sister wear them :)

I just love her eye lashes!

Becca and a Benny Hen. This hen is so old she hasn't laid eggs in 6 years!


They are so cute, tiny and perfectly round!

The gourds were lots of fun too!

Their faces are too cute!

This photo makes me laugh! So nosy!

As does this one with all their butts up in the air!
Photos from the Reservoir in Home Camp.

I love the moon in this photo! On the back roads toward Home Camp.

Like I said, this was a long one! But they are all so pretty and I just love fall! I am turning more and more into my mother. :)
