Do you know when you are lost and all of the sudden you find the right person to spend forever together? Well, that’s the story of Toni and Jeff! And no, they were not on their path to soul searching, they were literally lost trying to find their classroom on their sophomore year at Miami […]

Last Saturday Rachel and Kyle drove all the way from Havertown, PA to spend the afternoon with me during their engagement session. We tried to schedule their session for the week before, but mother nature decided to make it impossible with all of the thunderstorm days in Lancaster. When I saw that it was supposed […]

A perfect early spring day! That’s how I can describe Megan and Andrew’s sunset session this past Saturday. We met on a warm and sunny afternoon. They were all dressed up and looking gorgeous. Her parents were also there to help with the dog (yeah, they brought their dog!!!). I was ready to see them […]

You may be thinking, “wow, another Longwood Garden‘s engagement session?” Ohhh yeeeees!!! I absolutely love shooting there, especially during the winter months. I don’t mind it a bit when my couples choose these beautiful gardens as the venue for their session! This past weekend I drove all the way to Kennett Square to meet with […]

  Last Sunday I returned once again to Longwood Gardens for an engagement session. This time I was able to spend the afternoon with Erin and Quinn and get to know them better before their wedding day this summer. These two are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. Throughout the entire session […]

I met Ashley and Brandon a few weeks ago during a bridal show. We almost missed each other, but when it’s meant to be it’s meant to be. We had an instant connection, and since that day, every email we exchange, feels like I’m talking to a friend. We met again this week for their […]

When Lauren first inquired with me she said, “Our wedding will have an enchanted, whimsical forest feel and we want our guests to feel like they stepped into the pages of our love story”. So here is chapter one:  They met back in college while on a cool down run after a workout. That run […]

This year is going to be remembered by “the year I rescheduled tons of sessions due to bad weather”. No, seriously, most weeks forecast were like “sunny, sunny, sunny, sunny, cloudy, rain, rain”. Hmm not fun when you mostly shoot on the weekends and outdoors! Well, this past weekend was not different. The weather channel […]

A few months ago I walked into Copper Cup Coffee for a wedding consultation with a prospective couple. We talked for about 1h and I knew it: they were a JTP couple! Megan and Anthony are the type of couple that light up a room with their smiles and their eyes. They are so kind […]
