Photos by Hand and Arrow Photography Associate – Laurie Due to some wild weather the night before, Raine and Thomas’ engagement session moved locations last minute due to some flooding. They stumbled on The Meadows at Martins Creek, a super sweet off the beaten path natural area. With some beautiful light and a sweet nature […]

We have loved every minute of getting to capture special memories for Kelsey & Mark. Back in the summer of 2020, we got to capture their sweet engagement photos, then shortly after their wedding. Now, after those significant milestones, they are preparing to welcome a sweet baby into the world – and wanted to celebrate […]

We always love a visit to Longwood Gardens, and doubly so when we have such a sweet couple like Michelle & Matt! They decided to do their engagement photos at Longwood during “A Longwood Christmas” – really one of the best seasons at the park (okay – they’re all pretty great though!). Having the abundance […]

After hundreds of sessions over the years, this is the first that incorporated a classic Cadillac (wait until you see those pics towards the end of this post!). Leah & Jesse were such an awesome couple to photograph around Nockamixon State Park. We always get consistently gorgeous views here, and this day was no exception. […]

"Five stars aren't enough. From the first minutes of our intro call to our wedding day send-off, Jes and Chris somehow exceeded our high hopes and then some. They are gifted, meticulous, kind, calm, and contagiously positive. You can't help but feel at ease around them, and you can feel confident in their steady support. Jes and Chris are experts not only in photography but in wedding day planning and execution. Know nothing about planning a wedding and need an entire day-of timeline? You got it. Need your veil pinned into your hair? Give Jes 30 seconds. Feeling nervous and need a pep talk? They got you. As for the photos themselves...our wedding sneak peek gallery left us with our jaws on the ground.”

"Best photography experience, we plan to use them for years to come."
