Danville Elopement | Emily & Ben

Emily & Ben eloped this week in Danville surrounded by just their parents & Ben’s brother. There’s something so simple and sweet about a courthouse wedding and following their vows we headed over to a farm that’s been in Emily’s family for a few generations to shoot a little portrait session for them! The rain held off for us during the session and I am thrilled to be able to share a little glimpse into this special day. Congratulations Emily & Ben!

Spring Cherry Blossom Engagement Session | Season & Kurt

I met Season & Curt at my office one day with both of my kids in tow. I was pretty much completely convinced that I would never book their wedding (my kids were acting like zoo animals that day… of course!) but there was something about them that I just loved. I reached out to them a few days later and much to my surprise they were not terrified of me or my children, and I am SO looking forward to photographing their wedding in Lancaster next year.

We got to photograph their engagement session (my kids were NOT with me this time, hallelujah) at the gorgeous Rohrbach’s cherry and peach orchards this Spring, which was the perfect place for their late April session, just as the leaves were starting to make an appearance here in Pennsylvania.

Season & Curt are both recently graduated Physician’s Assistants who love to cook and read. They even brought me some of their favorite snacks to our engagement session (which hardly made it back to my house) - such an unexpected and thoughtful treat!

Curt popped the question to Season by setting up a little Easter egg hunt in their apartment one day, with the ring hidden in an egg, so I think the Spring engagement session was the perfect way to celebrate their engagement. Enjoy this little glimpse into their Spring Cherry blossom engagement session at Rohrbachs!

Romantic Rome Anniversary Session | Cassandra & Adam

This post is so very special to me, as are these people! I’ve had the opportunity to work with Cassandra & Adam three times now, and each time gets better and better! I love seeing their relationship grow and love spending time with them no matter where the location, but how can you beat a romantic Rome session? We have a few more months until their actual anniversary but it’s close enough, right?!

We walked the streets of Rome, stood over the streets of the capital, maybe climbed through some do not enter signs and basically learned that Italians really don’t care a whole lot about anything we did during this photo shoot to get those sunset shots, legal or not - haha!

Thank you Cassandra & Adam for always trusting me and for giving me the privilege of shooting you guys all over the place. You guys are truly such a joy to be around and I’m so thankful to have gotten to know you guys better over the last few years! Now move back to PA already so we can actually hang out.

Romantic Linwood Estate Spring Wedding | Melissa & Dane

Melissa & Dane’s Romantic Linwood Estate Spring Wedding was such a pleasure to photograph - it’s hard for me to even know where to begin! For their April wedding, plenty of trees were blossoming, creating the most incredible backdrop at the beautiful Linwood Estate in Carlisle, PA.

Melissa’s neutral palette was the perfect compliment to Linwood Estate’s romantic feel and the couple opted for a very non-traditional timeline that included a pre-ceremony cocktail hour (that Melissa & Dane both attended) which made for an incredibly unique (and fun) day! I have honestly never met a more laid back bride - Melissa was up for ANYTHING, even though her portraits took place prior to the wedding ceremony. She climbed on rocks, trekked through mud - truly nothing was off limits which made my job oh so fun.

Melissa & Dane, thank you so much for choosing me to document your day. Enjoy this glimpse into your perfect wedding day!

35th Wedding Anniversary in Italy

I had the opportunity to travel to Italy recently and capture a mini session in celebration of my parents’ 35th wedding anniversary! As a wedding photographer, I see so many unique couples each year but nothing is more unique than a couple that stands the test of time. Thirty five years is a big deal, guys!

One of the best parts about my job is being able to connect with some of my couples on social media. I may not always be the best at checking it regularly, as it’s something that I honestly struggle to squeeze into my life but seeing couples that I have had the opportunity to work with buy their first home, start families, and so much more is a huge perk for me and fills my heart with joy. I truly hope each of my couples has the opportunity to celebrate a 35th wedding anniversary, too.

As far as my parents go, whew… photographers always say photographing their kids is hard but parents might be just as challenging! You would never guess these two are senior citizens would ya? Maybe I see them differently than most but they kept having to remind me of their age whenever I would push them a little too hard with our adventures during this trip, but they got up early for our sunrise session and let me walk them around the little town of Cetara where we stayed on the Amalfi Coast to photograph this special occasion!
