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 hard to pick just a handful of favorites from this June 23rd wedding with Kavya and Adam. There was a bit of a hike for us to get there - the ceremony and reception were all held at Buhl Mansion, which is in Sharon, PA. And uh, "Where the heck is that?" you might ask. It is allllll the way out on the western PA border, just a few miles from the Ohio state line. So roughly, about 5.5-6 hrs to get there from good old Wiebner territory of Lancaster. Oh, and just so you don't think we have an entirely glamorous job, Joel was shooting the Celebrate Lancaster event for MOOSE in downtown Lancaster on Friday night, the 22nd. He didn't finish until 10:30pm, and then we had to do that nice short, 6 hour drive to get to the hotel for the wedding the next day. Yeah, do the math. We got there at roughly 5am. Luckily, we didn't have to be at the wedding until after lunch on Saturday!
So now, the wedding day. It was hot and sunny, and we had 2 ceremonies, 2 changes of wedding attire and 2 important people! Kavya and Adam were a very nice and calm, quiet couple to work with. We did some portraits before each ceremony, in each of their outfits - both Indian and Western. The ceremonies were really special and even intimate, for the number of guests that were there. Again, there were so many great opportunities! The Indian ceremony was held first, with the ceremony taking place on the Mandap, and traditional seating for the guests. After it was over, everyone changed, and then the Western ceremony was held in a grassy area near the reception tent, and the guests could all stand and gather around for the vows.
The reception was a great mix of Indian and Western music - sometimes flip flopping back and forth doesn't always work at receptions when music is concerned, but ALL of the guests embraced the different music and everyone was dancing and trying new things. Kavya and Adam have been together a long time, so both of their families and friends seemed entirely comfortable with each other. It was a huge party!
