Can we talk for a second about how adorable Cherie Anne’s Courtyard Cafe in York PA is?! I saw this little gem on an Instagram post and IMMEDIATELY had to go visit there! The owner is absolutely lovely, and was very accommodating when I asked her if she would be OK with a photographer using her space. […]

How great is McPherson’s Tree Farm for a December engagement?! I knew when Emily suggested a tree farm for their engagement session that it would be the perfect spot! They had both just finished finals for their fall semester, so their engagement session was a great way to celebrate a break and the upcoming holidays. […]

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 […]
