Photography Editing Styles – Bridal Business

As the industry has grown and evolved, the amount of different photography editing styles has vastly expanded. One of the things that truly sets a photographer apart from their peers is the way they choose to edit an image. I would wager to say that personal editing style is one of the top 5 most important…

LYNNE FAMILY – UNION MILLS FAMILY SESSION

This Union Mills family session was a great way to kick off spring. Spring sessions are seriously some of my favorite ever! It always helps when you have a family as adorable as this one is. Becca was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot last October, and I was so excited when she contacted me…

JAKE GONZOLLO – BIRTH & FRESH48 SESSION

I can not begin to tell you how honored I am to have photographed the 2nd surrogate birth for this amazing family.

LYSSE-GIBSON FAMILY

This weather lately has been so crazy and inconsistent! 75 and sunny one day, below freezing and windy the next!

The Lippy Family – Codorus PA

Our session for The Lippy Family at Codorus PA was perfection! I was a little skeptical about a sunrise session at Codorus when Dustin suggested it. To start, i’m totally NOT a morning person. A 6am start is not my idea of a good time. I am also used to shooting later in the day, so I…

KIERSTI + CHRIS WEDDING

I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful this wedding was with Kiersti and Chris at The Links at Gettysburg. From the very beginning, Kiersti and Chris felt like friends, rather than clients. They made myself, and every other guest at this intimate wedding feel so welcome! The Links at Gettysburg was the perfect setting…

ENDURE SKATEWEAR PROMO

Missi Blue is the sole owner and operator of Endure Skatewear, and a badass roller derby chicka. As a roller derby player myself i’ve loved and owned Endure Skatewear products for years. The shirts are SO soft, perfect for wearing to derby practice. When Missi asked me to help her with some promotional photographs for her apparel…

KRISTEN + PATRICK ENGAGEMENT

The engagement session for Kristen and Patrick on a beautiful fall morning was a fun family affair! We took the opportunity to not only photograph their engagement, but also tour the venue where the wedding will be taking place, Morningside Inn. The property at Morningside Inn has some absolutely breathtaking landscaping, and their famous weeping…

FIALLOS FAMILY

One of my absolute FAVORITE things about being a photographer is getting to see families grow and change over time. So, when Nicole asked me to do family photos for her, I was thrilled! I did maternity photos for Nicole and Jimmy last fall, and was thrilled to finally get to meet baby Ellie! She…
