On Friday, August 6th, 2021 I had the honor of capturing Lauryn & Deniz’s Wedding at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia. It was a gorgeous summer evening spent enjoying the warm breeze, ambiance of the live band, and of course witnessing the marriage of two beautiful people uniting their lives. Lauryn and Deniz […]

Lauryn & Deniz’s Wedding at the American Swedish Historical Museum

On June 26th, I had the opportunity to capture Ashley & Phil’s wedding day at Shepherd Hills Golf Club in Wescosville, PA! This was a unique situation for me because I have worked with Ashley at the hospital. So I knew her before she met Phil. Also, it has been so cool to see glimpses […]

Ashley & Phil’s Wedding at Shepherd Hills Golf Club

Not going to lie, Trexler Nature Preserve is one of my FAVORITE places to shoot at. You may already know this from previous shoots I’ve done there. I think it is gorgeous with the views of the valley and the vast differences in greenery. Something that can be tricky about being a photographer in Pennsylvania […]

Kate & Tyler’s Engagement Trexler Nature Preserve

An engagement is a short special time to work and grow towards marriage. This is by far one of my favorite quotes on marriage by Timothy Keller in his book, the Meaning of Marriage. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to get married, dating, engaged, of married! “To be loved but not known is comforting […]

Natalie and Andy’s Engagement Frenchtown, New Jersey

I have a confession… I am obsessed with plants. It’s okay though it is an issue that I’ve decided to live with. It’s a trend but more than that it is a way of life. I can attest to the saying that, “plants make people happy.” It’s a simple truth and I am not mad […]

Esther and Thomas Greenhouse Engagement

I work in an Emergency Department in Allentown and Heidee and Cody also work there as well. They started dating before or soon after I started working there while […]

So apparently I haven’t posted a blog post since October… Oops. What can I say, I am very busy! Between working full-time as a nurse in an ER, getting my undergrad, running a business and a home, I’m a little stretched. All good things and I love each outlet don’t get me wrong. It’s just […]

Sabrina & Ian’s Fall Engagement at Lockridge park

Well, I have been absolutely dying to take pictures of things other than myself (self-portraits) and my plants. Y’all it’s been a hot minute since I was able to take pictures of actual people so when I say it made my heart happy, that’s an understatement! I’m sure if you’ve been around for awhile you’ve […]

Haines Mill Photoshoot

Karrie and Trevor’s Intimate Kutztown Wedding

  Wow, where to begin… I have been pondering which way I would take this blog post for the past week and I am still at a loss so I will just speak/write what comes to mind.   Hope and Gabe   I met you both the day you both met. And what a whirlwind […]
