I'm Hannah B, wedding & portrait photographer based in New York State. I'm a lover of intricate details and story telling- both visually & through writing. Here you will find glimpses of my life as a photographer, wife, mama, dog-lover & Chick fil-A obsessed creative!
After almost an entire DECADE together, Jake & Allie officially became Mr. & Mrs. Tokarczyk at Bear Ridge Destination in Clymer, NY, on Friday! The weather felt like a roller coaster all week long, bringing snow showers the night before their day. The entire ceremony space was covered in inches of snow, only for the day to end up being 65 degrees and sunshine; we could not have asked for a better day in late October!
I was introduced to Allie a few years ago through my best friend, Morgan. They met in college and she lovingly referred to these two as “Allie Lybrook & Boyfriend Jake” ever since I can remember. By default, I adopted the formal titles myself. I’m still trying to comprehend how BOTH of them got a new name on Friday. “Husband Jake” does have a nice ring to it, but Allie Tokarczyk makes me stop in my tracks and utilize every brain cell I possess in order to spell her new last name correctly. Either way, finally getting to see these two high school sweethearts become husband and wife was WORTH IT.
Allie was the most beautiful bride and watching Jake cry at their first look, as well as when she came down the aisle, pretty much solidified everyone’s belief in true love. We truly had the best day EVER celebrating these two— it will NEVER get old turning clients into friends and dancing alongside them at the end of the night. EVER.
Getting to relive your day through these images had me tearing up all over again. You two will forever and always be my people, and I can’t wait to see where life takes you guys from here! Your baby puppies are so lucky to have the BEST parents in the entire world, and I’m crossing all my fingers that someday you bring some baby humans into the picture so you can join Evan, Jesse, Morgan & I in the parent club. (It’s super fun, I promise!) I love you both more than words can say!
