Gorgeous Trout Lake Wedding in the Poconos, PA

I photographed this Trout Lake wedding in the Poconos for Moirae Co. Photo & Film.

Emotional First Looks

My oh my, was the love and joy of this couple and their people evident all day long!!! The bride and groom’s first look was filled with happy tears before, during and after. It was easy to see love radiating from this sweet couple! Not too long after, we set up a first look for the bride and her father. These first looks are always special, but this one was extra sweet! Both the bride and her father could not stop smiling as salt streamed down their cheeks. It was such a beautiful moment!

Outdoor Ceremony

These two tied the knot outside on a beautiful, late summer afternoon on the banks of Trout Lake in the Poconos. The Poconos is known for its beautiful lakes and scenery, and this wedding location absolutely lives up to that standard! The arbor was set up underneath a beautiful tree, and the guests faced the couple and the stunning Trout Lake behind them. It was only a short walk down from the venue itself, which was great for older family members!!

Breathtaking Portraits

I know I’m pretty biased when I say this, but this couples’ wedding portraits are out of this world incredible!!! The Poconos woods scenery includes tall pine trees and ferns covering the ground, catching the light beautifully yet still bringing the focus to the couple! And the lake was, well, perfect. A horizontal dock allowed us to photograph the couples reflection in the water along with the rolling, woodsy hills in the background. Even though there was cloud cover at sunset, I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect portrait setting!!

The Poconos is my favorite place to photograph weddings for this reason. I’m a sucker for the natural beauty and the more private nature of the location, far away from the city. (If you want to see more Poconos wedding photos, check out this intimate backyard wedding!)

High-Energy Reception

One thing is for sure – this wedding knew how to bring the party!!! The dance floor was packed all night long. There were conga lines, traditional Ukrainian dances and dance circles galore! The bride’s parents were stars on the dance floor which was so much fun to watch. After a romantic, tear-filled last dance, the newlyweds grabbed a bottle of wine and headed to their sparkler exit! They ran hand-in-hand through cheering guests with the biggest smiles on their faces, ending with my favorite sparkler exit photo of all time.

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
