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
One last wedding post before vacation! (We actually have to shoot another wedding tomorrow as well, but this is my last official office duty.) Lindsay and Ryan got all married on that stinkin' hottest day ever, July 7th! I think it was over 100 degrees, and felt like we were stuck in the Arizona desert or something. Whoooeeee! Despite all that heat, we still managed to get some quality outdoor portrait time.
Lindsay and Ryan and their entire parties got ready at Lindsay's sister's big house (girls upstairs, guy downstairs!) - and had their first look there. They then all piled in a BUS - and I mean B-U-S - the largest limo bus I have ever seen. It was as big I think, as one of those tour buses! It was enormous! Anyway, they all piled in there and off we went for our grand tour prior to the ceremony. We made a quick stop at South Hanover Elementary School, which is where Lindsay and Ryan first met...in 1st Grade! They even had their first grade teacher as a guest at the wedding, how cool is that? So we did some portraits at the school quick, and off to the Hotel Hershey we went. We spend about 20-30 min in the formal garden behind the hotel - just long enough for the heat to start to get unbearable, then it was back in the bus and off to Harrisburg on Riverfront. After a few portraits in Harrisburg, we made our way to the Camp Hill Presbyterian Church where the ceremony was to be held.
The reception was at one of our favorite venues, the West Shore Country Club - yes we were just there a couple weeks ago. Yes, the awesome coordinator Steve was there, and yes, he took us out on the golf course to do some rad portraits. We love Steve, did I mention that?
We weren't at the reception very long, but we were there long enough to see some great toasts, a memorable fast first dance, some drinks at the bar :) (not for us, for the couple silly) - and some people getting down! Fabulous day for a fabulous couple!
Oh those girls!
Yep, loved it as soon as I saw it. Saawweeeet!
Time to see each other...
And a kiss! Lindsay and Ryan aren't big into PDA, and it is a very known fact amongst their families. Everyone started cheering and yelling whenever they would kiss. It was so funny!
Ryan's mom counting off how many times they had kissed so far!
Oops, there's another one! :)
Ryan had a lot of great expressions, and here's one right smack in the middle of the ceremony, as Lindsay was trying to get his ring on.
Yeah, our couples are cool, they laid down in the high grass on the golf course for us. :) They are cool.
