M+F Wedding 2022 | York, Pa

Congratulations Mandi + Ferdi!

Their intimate wedding in Downtown York, Pa had so many unique touches. Her dress was custom made, the ring box was a Pokemon ball, and don’t get me started on the adorable Bulbasaur cake topper! 

However, the most beautiful moment in my opinion…was their private first dance at Mandi’s favorite bookstore. Their song, “Slow dance in a parking lot” by Jordan Davis. The slightest bit of rainfall just added to the romantic ending of their night. Perfection!

Here’s a peek from their day!

Katie M | College Graduation 2021

college grad session, graduation session

We were contacted by Katie who own our voucher in a raffle. She chose to celebrate her accomplishment of graduating from Messiah College! In our time together, we shared memories of attending the same High School (Northeastern Senior High School in Manchester, Pa), and of staff who meant a lot to us. She’s working towards becoming a school counselor, and in the short time we talked, it is clear  she will do an excellent job in that career! 

Katie wanted a more downtown feel so York City was perfect!
Congratulations Katie on your accomplishments, and many more to come! 

These are just some favorites from the gallery.

Shutter Up Magazine, Issue 184 | Goldsboro, Pa

Ring shots!! Photographing the rings of the soon to-be husband and wife is one of my most favorite details to document. It’s about tying together the details of the day, and what their rings symbolize. This set was from the wedding of Dan and Tiffany out on Shelley Island!

Thank you Shutter Up Magazine for the publication! You can click here to view all the great photographs in the issue.

Courtnie | 30th Birthday Shoot

When you get an inquiry for a “Funeral for my youth” themed session, you say Yes! I got approval from a cemetery that was the most perfect background for Courtnie. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fall day too. It was fun getting to do something different, and all for her 30th birthday. It’s far too often that people don’t get pictures taken of just themselves and their own milestones. Kudos to Courtnie for wanting to celebrate herself! Happy 30th Birthday!

Alexis | Maternity Session

Fall leaves + a matching gown with a vintage chair…Perfection! This session was so much fun, even though it was chilly and sort of rainy! However, we made it happen before it started to rain even more. It was a pleasure to meet, and create with Alexis!

This is one of my gowns from Chicaboo, and it’s available for maternity, and non-maternity sessions!

The Hiners | Family Session

When you are contacted about doing a family session including their FURBABIES…Well of course you say YES!! I couldn’t get over during their session
how well behaved all the pups were. I think it’s safe to say we all had a great time, and their love for their family, and dogs is unmistakable!

PS: They recently opened a restaurant in Harrisburg called, Copper Pub & Grille (previously the Colonial Lounge). Check it out sometime!

Valle Wedding | Wisehaven

It was a beautiful September day at Wisehaven in York where Jose, and Ashley got married! Really, the weather was absolutely perfect! Knowing this family for a very long time, I also knew there was a lot of emotions going on because Ashley’s Mom, Kelly, was no longer with us. We all miss her so much.

The day continued with the wedding preparations and it was magical watching Ashley become such a beautiful bride! And the guys were full of laughter while getting ready! Ashley had a sweet gift for her soon to-be husband too. Then it was time for the ceremony begin, and Jose was emotional as he waited to see his Bride. I think many of us were tearing up watching him. I can’t say enough again how perfect the day was, and we got some incredible pictures out at close by park. When it was time to celebrate, their guests and wedding party knew how to show up! It was a blast!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Valle!
