Michaela&Cris-Rose Bank Winery Wedding

Michaela and Cris got married on September 15, 2017, which also happened to be my birthday! That is one way I’ll never forget their anniversary! When people found out I was photographing a wedding on my birthday, they thought I was crazy, but honestly, this couple is so sweet and down to earth that I knew I wouldn’t regret it!

The two tied the knot at Rose Bank Winery in Newtown, Pa. Michaela said she found this venue by chance! She was driving with her parents when they passed by and decided to stop in. She ended up loving the property and knew she had to bring Cris to see the venue as well. Long story short, they both fell in love and stopped their searching there! It also helped that they had great wine too!

Michaela was both calm and collected, and nervous and excited at the same time! She was 100% trusting in whatever vision I had for everything from her details, to formals of her and Cris. She would let out tiny little squeels every once and a while when she would realize that her wedding was actually happening!

The sun shone bright for them during their ceremony, which was actually one of Michaela’s favorite parts of the day! She said, “saying our vows and then exchanging the rings made everything feel so real! Cris and I have been together for 5 years before we got married and we considered each other husband and wife since day 1, but exchanging those vows made it official and amazing!”

Rose Bank Winery had endless options for backdrops for photographs. The entire property was incredibly beautiful and made it so hard to choose which spots to utilize! I ended up letting the bride and groom free early from formals so they could join in on cocktail hour, but I brought them back out during the reception for a few last shots before the end of the day! Since Michaela and Cris’ wedding was an earlier one, I wasn’t able to do night photos with them, but I still brought them out for some alone time away from all the craziness to get some gorgeous photos of them when the sun wasn’t as bright!

The two newlyweds danced under the twinkle lights for their first dance and then partied the rest of the afternoon away with their closest friends and family. I always love to ask what advice the couple may have for any couples who are currently planning their wedding. Michaela said “I would advise other brides to take your time planning, and whatever doesn’t get done in time doesn’t matter. By the time you get to the alter, everything will fall into place. Spend your time enjoying the best day of your life!” In other words, don’t sweat the small stuff!

Michaela and Cris, thank you so much for having me as your photographer. Your wedding was incredibly beautiful and you two are the sweetest most genuine people ever. I wish you a lifetime of adventure, love and happiness!

Chad & Carly- Tennessee couple’s session

Okay, so I think this is my last installment from the wonderful trip to Nashville. Don’t worry though (I know you’re all worried) I’ll be heading back in October of 2018 for a wedding and I’m pretty much already counting down the days! This last session was done on the first day we arrived! I found Carly through good ol’ Instagram and saw that she models and is just too dang cute! When I saw her post a photo with her boyfriend Chad, I knew I needed to ask her if I could photograph them together!

Carly and Chad were the sweetest and welcomed us into East Nashville! We all had fun sweating through our clothes in the intense humidity and swatting away at mosquitos! They gave Mark and I some pointers on where to eat and what to do for the rest of the week!

This spot was one of my favorites. It’s an abandoned church that has the prettiest stained glass windows and an awesome overgrown staircase that I couldn’t get enough of!

For our last few shots, we stopped at a local park just so I could get some of that beautiful greenery in some of my shots!

I’m so excited to share more from this session that I love dearly! Carly and Chad, you two are the cutest!! Thanks again for stepping in front of my lens!

Taylor & Connor-Bucks County Maternity

I’m always so excited to photograph maternity sessions, they’re a nice change of pace from weddings and boudoir sessions. It’s a nice balance of showing love between a couple while celebrating a woman’s body and the amazing things it’s capable of doing! This session with Taylor was the most perfect thing. I’ve known Taylor since we were in first grade together, and then throughout middle school and high school when we were in the same Girl Scout Troop! She’s grown to become an amazing lady who is just about ready to pop!

I asked Taylor why she wanted to do a maternity session and she said “I wanted to do a maternity session to not only capture the once in a life time moment of my unborn child growing inside me but to capture my true happiness of finally becoming a mother. All my life I have wanted to be a mom, it’s what kept me going through my depression, it wasn’t only my motivation in life, but a reason to stay on this earth.” Documenting this special moment in your life, I feel, is so important.

Like most of the gorgeous ladies I photograph, Taylor was a little nervous for her session. I tell everyone it’s okay to be nervous, but don’t sweat the small stuff. I pose everyone and help them through each step of the session so that they feel the most comfortable and confident the entire time! Taylor ended up LOVING her session after it was finished! She said she had no idea what to expect, but felt so relaxed and comfortable as I guided her through each pose.

The session took place at Bowman’s Wildflower Preserve, one of my favorite locations for sessions. I frequent there often and each time the area looks different due to different things blooming throughout the seasons! Taylor’s vibrant blue dress contrasted so nicely with the golden sunset and the yellow flowers that were in bloom at the preserve. She was truly glowing!

The final question I asked Taylor regarding her maternity session was if she’d ever recommend it to other soon to be mamas. She said “Of course I would recommend a maternity session to other mamas because it is a once in a life time opportunity to capture the moment your carrying your unborn child.”

Taylor is the sweetest, and I’m so excited I could capture the beauty of her pregnancy! I can’t wait until your little man is born! You and Connor are going to be amazing parents to Jaxon and I wish you two all the best!
