It’s been such a rainy spring season but finally we got some good sunshine for Danielle and Patrick’s engagement session at Carroll Creek and Baker Park! To start off we spent some time with their pup Sam. He was the goodest boi and did such a good job posing for his portraits! We chose this […]

What a gorgeous summer day we had for Mary and Ik’s Ridley Creek engagement session! I had been looking forward to meeting these two in person for so long, especially after having to reschedule this session for inclement weather. These two high school sweethearts got engaged at a local park where Ik hollowed out a […]

Brookside Gardens Engagement Session

Brookside Gardens was the perfect backdrop for Sarah and Emmanuel’s summer engagement session! We had some gorgeous golden light as we walked through the park talking and getting to know each other better. These two were high school sweethearts, starting off just as friends and prom dates. But by sophomore year of college, they became […]

Philadelphia Wedding

Springtime is my favorite at Parque Ridley Creek! The lush greenery, delicate florals, and beautiful stone architecture combine to make the perfect engagement session backdrop! I met Jamie and Andrew as guests at a previous wedding. (Thanks Erica and Ben for sending these two my way!) It was so great to see them again, this […]

Spending the evening with Emma and Matt at Historic Shady Lane was such an amazing way to get back into the groove of photographing again. (Let’s be honest, I was a little worried I forgot what […]

Seriously, how dang cute are Lilly and Brett?! We headed down right after Christmas to Jerusalem Mills for their engagement session. I’m just over here swooning over how adorable these two are together. We managed to get snow on the ground for our photos, but we actually got lucky and caught a pretty warm day […]

I had the pleasure of meeting Danielys and Jesse on a very brisk fall morning for their engagement session at Chickie’s Rock. As I pulled up, I was totally stressin’ because I had intentions of meeting them at the park/day use area, not the hiking trail! Well, i’m terrible at directions and couldn’t find it!! […]

So many amazing fall sessions this year, and Janna and Jeremy’s Fort Hunter engagement session was no exception. Plus, they brought along their dog Brutus which made it extra fantastic. Couples, please bring your animals to your engagement sessions so I can snuggle and love on them! I had never been to Fort Hunter before […]

I love getting to explore new locations for photos. So, when Victoria suggested a Cylburn Arboretum engagement session, I immediately said yes! I had heard of this location before but had never been there myself. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! We started off our session slowly exploring the property and taking in […]

I am not a morning person. But, you bet your butt i’m willing to drag myself out of my nice comfy bed when I get to photograph a beautiful Gettysburg sunrise engagement session! Fall is my absolute busiest time of year, because those colors just can’t be rivaled. Nicole knew for sure she wanted to […]
