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 […]

Last weekend the snow came to Pa! It was about darn time if you ask me, and while I’m not so much a fan of the blistering cold I love the snow.  There is just something so magical and gorgeous about it, especially when you throw in a couple in love! Amber and Nate met […]

I am LOVING meeting these couples for 2018! You don’t even know how wonderful it is for me to meet these guys and have some fun with these engagement sessions.  I met with Meredith and Mason at a Christmas tree farm and we did a little walking around.  I have actually never been to a tree farm before (I know GASP) so it was really fun to just see how awesome they are.

Happy Wedding Wednesday!! That’s a thing right? If not it is now! I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with another one of my 2018 couples and let me tell you they are so wonderful! We were laughing pretty much the entire time we weren’t shivering.  It wasn’t that bad (I’ve photographed in worse) but it was still cold.

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.

Hi there!! I love welcoming my new brides during the engagement season.  It makes me so excited, and happy and crazy. So, naturally when we set the date for Andrew and Brittany’s engagement session, I was SO EXCITED! The wether however had a different story.  Luckily we were able to find a new date that worked perfectly.  Brittany actually lives in Buffalo, so she made the drive over to Erie for her session and I’m really happy that we were able to come together.  These guys are so adorable.  I was smiling the whole session so much that my cheeks hurt when I was left.

It’s another wedding Wednesday and I am so excited to share some of Jake and Sara’s wedding with you! I loved working with Sara- actually our connection is a pretty cool story! I photographed a wedding last summer for our dear friends Jeremy and Kristi in South Carolina.  We all had so much fun together and I met this wonderful woman named Erin.  She was bubbly and beautiful and hilarious, and she loved my work hard.  Fast forward to the end of my coverage of the reception and the beginning of the “Sam is a guest now” time period.  Erin runs over and asks me if I have a card.  I always do so I gave her one, which she stuck in her honey’s shirt pocket. She explained that her sister was just engaged and she would be referring me to her!! I was so humbled and excited that at a reception I was gaining a referral by some crazy wonderful people. Sara connected with me soon after we got back to PA and we hit it off instantly.  Sara is so sweet and funny and her sarcasm is my life. I am so happy I had that card with me last September!
