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
Saturday we actually didn't have a wedding! wow! Well we still worked a bit in the afternoon - Angela scheduled her engagement session with us earlier this year for Saturday, and wouldn't you know it turns out to be one of the hottest, stickiest days of the year? It was 94 degrees when we got out of the car at Angela's parent's house Saturday afternoon, and we were outside for 3 hours shooting! Although the weather was miserable, we didn't let it show in the photos and kept reassuring Angela and Kurt that we could work some magic and make sure they wouldn't look sweaty in the final photos. My phenomenally talented husband worked the Wiebner magic and the shots look amazing as usual!
Angela and Kurt are one of our couples for next year, and we hiked around her parents property in the Ephrata area and found some great spots for their session. The cutest thing was their dog Vinnie (short for Vin Diesel, hehe) - who is only 5 pounds and followed us around everywhere! You will see him below!
Here's Vinnie, trying to stay as close to Angela as he could. He is soooo cute!
Along the pond, there were some rad cattails growing so of course we had to put them in it. We love putting our couples in "stuff".
hahahahaahhahhahah! Sorry I had to do this. I was trying to set up the next shot of Angela and Kurt and Vinnie kept on coming into the photo. Joel grabbed him and ran! I got this as he was running by and I just lost it; that poor dog looks like Joel is going to have him for supper! (sooo, just kidding! but that's funny isn't it?)
Kurt whispering in Angela's ear, making her giggle...
Beautiful,beautiful window light inside one of the buildings.
Scaffolding? Sure, why not? Angela's parents are doing construction all around the property, so there were plenty of things to play on.
In the apple trees we found some sweet flare.
And out in the deer pasture we had some fun. Yes, I said deer. Angela's family have about 20 that they have a HUGE pasture for.
