Schultz Wedding | Duncannon, Pa

Their story began out of Deb’s pure curiosity as to how Tyler’s John Deere backhoe worked. Who would have thought that years later on that very same property where they shared their first kiss, they would become husband and wife…

The Wedding took place on their own private property that faces the Susquehanna River. This October day was absolutely gorgeous! The blue checkered pattern isn’t only on her favorite lotion, but it’s also a huge part of the wedding decor! I love so much how it all ties in! While Tyler was getting ready, we had a fun conversation regarding counting down facts that he learned while preparing these last few months for the wedding! I loved watching Deb’s excitement over Instagram with her countdowns on the letter board, and how throughout all the wedding planning, she stayed true to herself with her watch! Then, it was just by the hands of Tyler’s Mom stitching on the final details to add the finishing touch…Everyone was ready to witness the marriage of Tyler, and Deb…including one of their cats!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Schultz!!!

But wait…there’s more to this story that I don’t want you to miss as you’re looking through their pictures….When Tyler was just a boy, he found 3 beautiful stones when he was mining in North Carolina. Ever since then they were sitting in their natural form in a film canister, and now in the form of a gorgeous engagement ring. And, if you look closely…their wedding bands were custom made! It’s their quote that has always stuck with them,”Over, or Under, or Through”, written in elveish! The photos where you see them on the driveway with their guests behind them is where they had their first kiss!…and the John Deere that brought them together!

Boudoir Experience | Testimonial

“I’m too fat, maybe once I lose weight.”
“I’m not comfortable enough to do that.”
“It’s so expensive! Totally not in the budget”
“I don’t want people to see me like that.”

I hear those same reasons to NOT book a boudoir session, but let me tell you what you WILL gain from a boudoir experience.

Boudoir is for EVERYONE, and EVERY SHAPE! I will help guide, and show you how beautiful your curves are. I have seen women come into their session feeling unsure, but after a few shots, then showing them the back of my camera…here is what I start to hear:

“Oh my gosh I can really do this!”

Ladies, I want this for you! To show your fierce side, grow your confidence, and leave feeling empowered!

Before your session I will help you to prepare by discussing your vision, go over the little details, and outfits so you don’t have to stress at all! Your session includes my complimentary hair and makeup services for some amazing pampering before we begin your session. I love that time to get to know my Client’s even more! If finances are ever the problem, please don’t worry. I offer payment plans that fit everyone’s needs.

ALSO, I provide different options as to who is allowed to view your photos.
1. I want ALL the world to see
2. I only want certain ones to be visible for the world
3. These are for my eyes only

If you’re interested in booking a boudoir session with me, please contact me!

Also, these sessions aren’t just for ladies! I welcome couples, friends, and men too!


Now, let me tell you about this gorgeous lady right here…She is a huge advocate on body positivity no matter what stage in life you are at. Deb contacted me about my boudoir model call and she mentioned about her own journey, how much confidence she has gained, and that a boudoir session would be a great way to showcase that! What she wrote was so inspiring that I knew this session would do wonders for her! What I also enjoyed with her session is that we included different things she enjoyed like drinking coffee, and her ukulele! Your boudoir session can include anything that makes you happy too!

Some words from Deb on her Boudoir Experience:

“I’ve always wanted to do a boudoir session, but I kept telling myself I’d wait until I lost more weight. Until I was thinner. Until my belly wasn’t so big. But then I realized I was putting off celebrating how awesome my body already is. This body is my home; with legs that take me places and arms that hug my soon-to-be husband, a mouth that speaks truth (and sometimes gets me in trouble) and my favorite part about myself, my mind, that choose to see the good in the world and fight to make it better. I’ve been learning to love myself for a long time, and learning to love my body for what feels like an even longer time. I was nervous going into the boudoir shoot; I already knew Melissa because we chose her to do our wedding photos, but I’m now going let her see a lot more of me, including the side of me that is still learning to love my body. It helped having her do my hair and makeup; we got to talk a lot about what this session meant for me and why it was so important to me. The first few shots I felt SO awkward, but she kept saying how great they were. I was trying to believe her and I knew she could tell, so she showed me a few of the photos she’d taken and OH EM GEE she was right – I looked like a freaking goddess. My anxiety disappeared and I started enjoying the benefits of learning to love myself and I had a BLAST the rest of the shoot. I looked great and felt even greater – so empowered and so proud of the body I call home. And now you can see it too – look at these amazing photos. Thank you, Melissa – I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience!”
