Cape May, NJ – Deitrich Wedding

This wedding is very near and dear to my heart because it is my baby sisters wedding.

Their wedding ceremony took place at Cape May, NJ Lighthouse Beach.

I always wanted a sister named Dolly and I waited through three sisters and then a brother until I got my own live “baby Dolly.”  We have always been close and I have been a second Mom to her all of her life.

She has also followed in my footsteps and trained under for me for many years and I’m so happy to have her as my employee on photoshoots and right hand in the office.  She has grown into an amazing, godly woman who I am so proud of.

Jared & Dolly met a couple of years ago while making pizzas at Hershey Park… Yup!  How ironic!  It grew from a friendship and long conversations about their faith into a deep love for each other.  God has brought two beautiful lives together and it’s amazing to see their love for each other and for their heavenly Father.


Now, on to their wedding day!


Since my brother is a pilot and had flown down to the beach for the wedding, they started off their day looking down over Cape May!

You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!

Since I have done Dolly’s many hair-doo’s all of her life… guess who got to do her hair and make up for her wedding??!!  Yup, I wear many hats when it comes to my siblings wedding days.

My beautiful Dolly headed to see her Groom who was waiting for her on the beach where the Cape May/Lewis Ferry boat comes in. It was awesome to be her photographer and follow her throughout every part of her day and I will always cherish these memories.

Xander’s First Photoshoot

We were so happy to do Xander’s First Photoshoot.  Joseph has watched Xander’s Daddy grow up and has been like a ‘big brother’ to him. Two years ago Joseph stood in front of a church as a Groomsmen at his wedding and two of our daughters were their flower girls. Now we are privileged to watch their love blossoming into a beautiful family.
