Let’s Welcome Claire! | 2018 SZP Bridal Team Erie Pennsylvania


Scrolling through my social media I noticed that there is always so much emphasis on bridal details and just brides in general.  What happened to the grooms?!? I feel like especially in today’s society (you know the one where love is love and that’s all) there should be an equal amount of attention paid to […]

Suit and Tie | Groomsmen Details and Looks


Happy Monday!! I’ve been on the fence and of the fence about sharing these types of posts with you, but I really gave a hard thought and I decided that I would keep seeing frustration and sadness in brides unless I started the conversation.  So here goes.  Today I want to talk to you about your wedding photographer, and their style.  I know that doesn’t really seem that important right? Like why can’t you just find someone who takes beautiful photos and is in your budget and call it a day? You can, but I’m here to tell you that you won’t be as happy as you could be with a photographer who’s style speaks to your soul.

Choosing a Photographer Based on Style | SZP Education


Happy Friday!! Today I am so excited and honored to be sharing my personal thoughts on a product for photographers.  I received an email a few weeks back from a wonderful company called Sleeklens.  They offer workflows and presets for photographers, and they have a workflow dedicated to wedding photographers!! How amazing is that? So I’ve had the workflow for a little while and I’ve been testing it out and playing around with it, and I wanted to just share my thoughts on it.

5 Ways to Prepare for Your Boudoir Session and How Important a Before Image Can Be | SZP Education


Happy Monday! I am coming at you bright and early with some super awesome education today.  I wanted to share a bit of behind the scenes work with you, and especially for my brides I hope this puts you at ease when you’re thinking about those super beautiful detail shots that you see all over Instagram and Pinterest.  I always bring my style kit to a wedding. Always, always, always. Sometimes I get to a wedding and start looking around the getting ready room and I find amazing things, so I don’t even end up needing my kit.  However, sometimes things are limited and in I swoop with my superhero box to save the day! So the question is: what do I keep in my styling kit?
