A Blue & Yellow Downtown Erie Wedding | Mr. & Mrs. King


“. . . Do do do” You know you sang that! I hummed the now famous children’s shark tune all afternoon; being the hostess of a shower was a plus because I wasn’t participating in the don’t say baby game. I do not plan baby showers often, but you know when it’s for your little […]

Baby Shark Shower | A Baby Shower for My Nephew!


I love proposal stories.  They are one of my favorite parts of the engagement session.  I usually wait until about halfway through to ask how it all went down, and Jeremy did not disappoint in their story!! I met with Jessica and Jeremy Sunday evening.  The sun was out in full force, spring had finally […]

A Colorful Erie Engagement Session | Jeremy & Jessica


” I met Kaitlin and thought wow she’s really down to earth, I mean I know she digs in the dirt every day but that’s really down to earth!” The best joke in a mother’s toast.  In a nutshell that was just how this group of family members and friends were.  Niko and Kaitlin had […]

A Teal and Purple Downtown Wedding | Mr. & Mrs. Jarema


The skies were a perfect shade of grey.  Weird to say that, but it was just bright enough for a mid-morning glow, and just dark enough to keep you from squinting.  I knew some rain was coming our way, but I was prepped and excited to meet another SZP Couple.  As I pulled into the […]

An Autumn Picnic Engagement Session | Taylor & Nicole


I love being in new cities.  The thrill of driving into some place I could literally get lost in excites me, and being in Raleigh NC was nothing short of amazing.  I posted in a Facebook group for photographers before I left PA, asking if there were any couples who would be available to hang […]

A Daffodil Sweetheart Session In Raleigh


Warm tones and textures, macrame and lace.  These are the things that I only ever dreamed of photographing before.  Boho style weddings are not that common in Pennsylvania, so when I looked around Forest Hall and saw some of these details, I was pumped.  It was finally going to happen! I wanted to make sure […]

Boho Chic Vibes | How We Gather Shootout Part 2


Sunshine, birds, the sounds and feelings of warmer weather woke me up as I lay in my adorable quirky Air BnB.  I was in Pittsboro, North Carolina and it was the morning of the How We Gather Shootout.  I spent the day before driving from Pennsylvania, about 9 hours.  I was exhausted by the time […]

The How We Gather Shootout | North Carolina Wedding Workshop


The autumn is supposed to be crisp, cloudy, and beautiful.  Not dreary and cold.  However, I have found that the dreary PA weather in the fall can make for some beautiful moments.  I met with Mike and Ash at their college campus, Clarion University.  They brought along their fur baby Stanley, and he was so […]
