Do you like to have fun? We do, especially with our photos. We wanted something a little different than the average blog out there, so along with our super talented Blog designer we came up with a Favorites section - or "Wiebner Faves" as we like to call it. What is it you ask? more »
Well, under each photo, you will see an "I Like This" box. If you really like that image, if it tickles your fancy, or makes you laugh, or just plain old makes you smile - go ahead - check it. We know you want to. Each time that box is clicked on a photo, it adds to the running tally for that image. The top 14 favorite images on the entire blog will be shown as thumbnails in this section. Just so you can see the most popular images of all time on the blog. A little something out of the ordinary - it never hurts to be different!
Also, blog posts can be favorites. Now that we have comments available, you will see a little bar meter at the bottom left of each post. Once the meter hits a certain number of comments, its automatically promoted to a "Wiebner Fave Post". :) Something else just for fun!

I find it incredibly difficult to write about us when put on "The Spot". "I need a 500 word bio about you and Joel, now!" Who can do that? How do you make your own personality shine in a few words, let alone that of two people? Well, I am going to give it my best shot. If you really want to know about US - who we really are - read the blog below. We really try to keep it updated as often as possible, and hope that our fun, casual personalities shine through in the words you read and the images we capture for our clients. The blog below is our way of communicating our lives - both personal and professional - with clients, friends, family and colleagues. We believe strongly in using words and images together to communicate our passion.
I am going to keep this short and sweet - Joel and I were meant to be together - to live, love and be happy making photographs. We were both photographers before we met over 9 years ago - we met behind a camera, and continue to feed off of that energy. We are a rock solid husband and wife team and we wouldn't want it any other way - we work together 24/7 and never tire of each other. We have had our business since November 2000, and have thrived on photographing weddings as our main photography genre since 2002. We love what we do. We like to think we look at the world in our own way - not photojournalistically, not traditionally, not artistically. Just as a Wiebner. If you like what we see, then you will like us too. Oh and don't forget to comment in the blog on our two little darlings - Haydn and Zane - they are pretty darn cute little Wiebners. Enjoy! - Rita
It was a whilwhind of a wedding day on Saturday -first the stylist's house, then back to Jess' grandparents house to get dressed, next off to St. Lawrence Chapel in Harrisburg for the ceremony, then a sprint over to riverfront for a few quick pics, and last off to the Harrisburg Country Club for more pics and the reception. Whew! It was well worth it all as we had such a great time with these two. We had done their engagement pix last fall at PSU main campus, their Alma Mater. They are both SO lucky to have found each other - they are two of the nicest people we have ever worked with! The morning went rather quickly and before we knew it we were at the reception. However, the party rocked! Jared and Jess live in Hoboken, NJ, and they brought in Oh! Studios from NJ to DJ the reception. They were totally great, and a new favorite on our short list of favorite DJs. Both Jared and Jess' families were just like them - super nice and friendly! We had an absolute blast at the reception - the dance floor was packed!
Totally unaware, I captured Jess waiting to get dressed. Her sister was still at the hairdresser's and she was waiting on her to get back so she could get dressed. She didn't want to get her dress on without her! Here she is looking out the window just as her sister pulled in the driveway.
The house Jess got dressed in was her grandparents house, and she has many fond memories there. She wanted to get ready there because her grandparents are considering moving, and she wanted to have some photos taken there. Here she is on the staircase, one of her favorite spots in the house - with a little bit of funky lighting applied.
Another one of Jess, Joel grabbed this portrait - we usually wouldn't put up all of these of the bride, but we got so many cool shots of her in the house we couldn't help but do it!
The super hams - ring bearer and flower girl - I was taking shots of them all day, they were too cute!
Walking back from the river to leave for the reception. You can see the antique car in the background that Jess' parents had rented as a surprise for them. Penn State blue!
Jared's grandparents were so cute - they danced on and off all night - they were the life of the party!
