Autumn colors, a fairytale vibe, the party of a lifetime, and an incredible live painter — you don’t want to miss this, so proud to be a Pocono Wedding Photographer 🙂
Check out this fall folliage…
Why Rhinehart Photography?
Tracy shares, “I became obsessed with Lisa’s work as soon as I saw it. I am not a person who is usually into photography or having my picture taken, but when I saw her work I was like yes that is what I want my wedding pictures to look like!”
She continues, “I loved how Lisa could mix in bold, editorial-style photographs and capture the feeling of the day. Lisa was AMAZING the day of the wedding she helped keep me on schedule while keeping me calm at the same time when things went a little off the original plan. I truly just can’t wait to see how she captured all the amazing moments from our day.”
Nick smiles, “Simply put this was Tracy’s find and a great one. I was always pleased with how everything was handled by Lisa and would highly recommend her services to anyone.”
Pocono Wedding Prep at Stroudsmoor
There are so many incredible wedding venues I work in as a Pocono Wedding Photographer. I’ve photographed intimate weddings at The Ledges Hotel, big ballroom weddings at Woodstone, and also all over the incredible campus of the Stroudsmoor Country Inn. Each wedding is so unique and the Pocono Mountains are so special to me as I fell in love with them as a small child.
Here are a few of the details and morning preparations at Stroudsmoor:
Bridesmaid’s First Look at Stoudsmoore Country Inn
Nick says, “To me, trust in a relationship is very important. Our relationship has always had that.”
He smiles, “Tracy can handle who I am as a person. She understands the way that I love to joke around. I have a lot of personality that can be a lot to keep up with, haha!”
He adds, “We don’t try to charge each other, we each push the other to be comfortable with who they are and to express that.”
Cheers to This Pocono Mountain Groom
Tracy smiles, “I love that Nick just accepts me for who I am and doesn’t try to change me even if he doesn’t exactly get it. He will still just go along and support me in whatever it is.”
The Couple’s First Look
Tracy laughs, “I did get a little emotional at our first look which actually surprised me a bit since that is a bit out of character for me. ”
Pocono Wedding Photographer
Nick says, “I always wanted to have a fall wedding in a rustic venue. The Stroudsmoor fit my vision from the start. The cocktail hour had that speakeasy feel that really won me over.”
Tracy continues, “At the end of the day, Nick was the one to pick out the venue. I was very undecided about what I wanted and he knew he wanted a wedding in the woods/outdoors. On the day of the wedding I couldn’t believe how beautiful the ceremony space looked, it was better than I imagined it to be.”
The colors here are surreal!!
A Live Painter
Tracy smiles, “I am as obsessed with our live painter Andy Greenlee and the amazing picture she did of us as much as I am obsessed with our wedding sneak peek pictures so far. She captures the emotion perfectly. The live painter was a surprise for Nick as well as all the guests at the wedding. The only person that knew ahead of time was my sister because I needed someone’s opinion before I booked it.”
Andy likes to get to know her clients before the event. She finds out what is most important to each couple and then on the wedding day brings that to life. I love her! A few of my other clients have hired her also.
Emotion-Filled Stroudsmoor Woodsgate Ceremony
Tracy shares, “When it came to the ceremony I was just so happy to be there with him in front of our family it was probably the easiest part of the day which was a surprise to everyone because I am not good in front of crowds at all. Once the ceremony was done, I was just ready to celebrate with Nick and all our family and friends.”
As a Pocono Wedding Photographer, one of my favorite parts of Stroudsmoor’s “Woodsgate” property is being completely surrounded by the forest here. And walking up alongside of a waterfall is so incredibly unique. I love how they built the venue into the side of the mountain as opposed to learning and flattening the mountain to build the venue. It feels so organic and I love that about the space!
Vibrant Colors, Unique Perspectives, All the Emotion
Tracy says, “When it came to picking my colors for the wedding, the pictures played a big role in my decision because I knew I wanted bold, bright pictures so the jewel tone colors would really stand out without being too out of place for the fall.”
As a Pocono wedding photographer, I love how she incorporated bold jewel tones and love how they complement autumn. The rose petals were also a really nice touch!
Incredible Stroudsmoor Service!
Nick shares, “If you have a wedding at Stroudsmoor you need to have Belkis as your wedding attandant!! I truly understood what it was like to be a king for a night. My cigar went out Belkis had another for me, or if my drink was empty she already had one in her hand ready for me.”
And the staff at the Stroudsmoor… wow, what service!!
Pocono Mountain Wedding Traditions
From introductions, to speeches to dances, these were such incredibly beautiful moments. These are the reasons I love being a Pocono Wedding Photographer!
THIS is a Pocono Wedding Party!!
Tracy says, “After waiting for over 2 years, I really just could not wait to party and celebrate all night with our closest family and friends! They understood the assignment and were on the dance floor with me all night!”
Live Painter– Told ya… Andy’s incredible!
Andy of Celebration Paintings is insanely talented. From one artist to another, she absolutely blows me away. Both her talent and who she is as a person. Do you know how difficult watercolor is? Like how muddy colors can get? Or how difficult it is to get facial expressions to come across at all, let alone under time constraints like this? Wow! Girl! OMG!
Playing with Light at the End of the Night
Nick adds, “I love that the venue had a great nightlife vibe that allowed for such a great laid-back hangout for friends and family to gather and have a cigar and pass memories and stories together. It brings me back to a time when I just got to sit and listen as my grandfather would tell stories from the past. Lisa’s pictures convey the mood of the night.”
Tracy smiles, “I loved the flash shots that we did at the end of the night. When we did them in our engagement shoot, they were some of my favorite pictures, but the ones you captured at the wedding were even more incredible!”
She laughs, “I also love the cigar shots of Nick, I am sure there will be a print of that hung up in our home for sure.”
