J+A Wedding 2021 | Three Gables Barn

Congratulations to the new
Mr and Mrs Overhiser!!!

They were married on September 25, 2021 at
Three Gables Barn in Carlisle, Pa. 

Not only was it a gorgeous September day…John and Ashton planned a day full of surprises for their family and friends! The first was they had everyone convinced that they were not going to have an officiant, and instead unite themselves on their own. Ashton wanted to surprise her mother by having her cousin marrying them in honor of her late Uncle who died at war (her Mom’s brother). Her Mother’s smile said it all as you watched him approach the Bride and Groom. She really had no idea, and the rest of the ceremony was filled with many more smiles and laughter all around! Their vows were so personal with fun stories of the journey together.

Next on the schedule was the formal family pictures, the bridal party pictures with everyone together, and lastly pictures of just the Bride and Groom. We do their pictures last to allow them some time to just have a moment for themselves. It’s so important for couples to step away from the crowd, and look at each other and say 
“We did it!”

When we got to the reception…the surprises continued!! John and Ashton told us they choreographed their own first dance and they did NOT disappoint! It was a whole compilation of different songs, but a personal fav is when their dance started with 
The Greatest Showman! Ashton and her Dad also choreographed their own dance that was hilarious with the “Welcome to the Griswolds” sign!

They finished their night by dancing with everyone which went strong until the night concluded!

Enjoy some of the highlights from their gallery. Congratulations again John and Ashton!


They booked 10 hours of coverage, and the final gallery had a little more
than 1000 edited images. Amount of images will vary from wedding to wedding.

Hingework Styled Shoot | Lancaster Pa

I was so excited when my photographer friend, Katie MacDonald, invited me to also photograph a styled shoot she put together! The event took place in February 2021 at the Hingework in Lancaster Pa, and outdoor pictures were taken at a nearby park. Everything about the day was magical, and beautifully designed! Thank you so much Katie for this opportunity! I also got to meet 2 other photographers: Vanessa Martin and Caroline MacDonald! Their work so stunning!!

Revolution Beauty Bar | Mayfield, Pa

Working with Shelley, the owner of Revolution Beauty Bar, and her ladies was a BLAST!!! I also never thought I’d be so obsessed with doing a shoot at a roller rink that we had all to ourselves! Shelley and I connected over Facebook about wanting to collaborate with photographers. It’s an amazing tribute on how social media can bring great new connections, and opportunities! Anyways, Shelley sent some inspiration for both shoots, and honestly we all rocked it! The tans, the hair, the girls…PERFECTION!
Please enjoy the work we all created, and I absolutely recommend contacting these ladies for their services.

Importance of Giving

We feel that it is our duty as a small business to give back whenever possible. It’s important because we understand how great it feels to be supported, and having that sense of community. Yes, we’re a sucker for Hallmark like movies where you see everyone pitch in together to help the one another! It’s so true that we NEED each other.

This blog will serve as an explanation of different things that we offer, and do to support this cause.
We’re thankful the art of photography allows us to do this!

Adoption + Surrogacy Sessions

We are so happy to help families celebrate their adoption or surrogacy story! To use this promotion for an adoption, please contact us within 2 months finalized adoption date. We recommend to those who are adopting a baby, to schedule as soon as possible to document their itty-bitty features!

For surrogacies, each situation is unique. This offer can be used to photograph the couple with the surrogate, and another session later to celebrate the new family! Please contact us so we can provide you more information.

NICU Session

We know the NICU can be hard no matter how long your baby(ies) has to stay, or what complications there are. None of it is easy.  This session can be taken place at your home, outside, studio, or at the NICU if the hospital allows it.

Only valid to families with a baby(ies) currently in the NICU, or are a recent NICU graduate. Session must take place no later than 2 months after being discharged.

Adoption, Surrogacy, and NICU sessions can’t be combined with additional offers.

Local non-profits

We started making charitable donations through our business in January 2019 after going through some very difficult times. We went through a lot of losses between 2018 into 2019 that had us really depressed. Being able to give back to the community has brought back a lot of excitement 

How does it work?
Throughout the year we will raise funds for different local organizations, or open it up to allow our Clients to pick where we should send the funds! A charitable donation is always made with weddings and events.

Below is a list of local non-profits that we love to support, but we’re always open to learning about others.
