Alex + Pete | A Classic Spring West Chester Wedding

Alex + Pete. Where do I even start with these two? I knew Alex from when we were younger and took dance together, her mom was also my gym teacher in elementary school!, so when she inquired with me a few years ago I was SO excited to reconnect and be a part of her West Chester wedding. I met her + Pete for a consult and knew it was meant to be when they wanted to shoot their engagement session at Longwood Gardens. When I think of Pete I think of how he looks at Alex. He truly looks at her as if she’s the only person in the room and together they fit SO well so it’s no surprise that their Longwood Gardens engagement session (view that here!) from last spring is one of my favorites to date. They are so comfortable + sweet together - Alex has the best laugh and Pete makes her laugh nonstop! - and it’s so completely evident how in love they are and how happy they are together.

The morning of their wedding I met with Alex first who was so calm and relaxed. When I met with Pete he was pretty quiet, focused.. And when I asked if he was nervous, since he’s normally outgoing, he said, “I think it really just hit me, I’m getting married!!!”. Alex gave him a handwritten book complete with every reason she wanted to marry him and every sentimental date in their relationship. When Pete cried during opening his gift (can we talk about how sweet?!) I knew his reaction to her walking down the aisle would be even better.

Their entire wedding day it rained.. Except for right as we arrived to their venue, Penn Oaks Golf Club, to shoot portraits. What was left in its wake was the dreamiest fog that created the best backdrop and really made the lush greenery + dusty blue bridesmaid dresses pop! Some of my favorite details from their day included her gorgeous bouquets that were each wrapped with ribbon adorned with a line of their first dance written in calligraphy, Pete’s reaction to first seeing Alex, their first dance and lastly their best friends’ maid of honor + best man speeches before dinner. I can’t say enough good things about Alex + Pete. At one point I told Pete how accommodating he was and he said something along the lines of “well, I consider you a friend now!” which is something I will always remember and truly speaks to their genuine + down-to-earth demeanor as a couple. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this beautiful spring wedding in West Chester a few weeks ago!

A few weeks ago on a Saturday morning I met with Stefanie + Marc for their engagement session after one reschedule for rain. I'm pretty sure spring showed up during that week because it was truly showing off for their session.. Look at all of those fluffy pink flowers + pretty trees!!! So beautiful! I got to meet their sweet new pup and we spent some time wandering around Scranton for their session. I can't wait for their Scranton Cultural Center wedding later this year! Here are a few favorites from a few weekends ago.

A few weeks ago I met up with Leah + Blake for their engagement session at Longwood Gardens after we debated back and forth about rescheduling for rain. We decided to go ahead as scheduled since both of us would be traveling and I am sooo glad we did! It may have been rainy + windy outside but the greenhouse was just blooming with spring, we caught some fluffy cherry blossoms outside and the light couldn't have been any softer. L + B own an event planning business so that fact alone combined with their proposal in California (complete with a helicopter ride, of course) has me SO excited for their November wedding this year. I'm so happy I got to spend some time with these two, at one of my favorite places!!, before their big day and cannot wait for their fall wedding! Here are some favorites from the always stunning Longwood Gardens with the sweetest couple.

Rachel + Sam | Scranton PA Winter Wedding

Winter wedding at the Tripp House in Scranton

This past Saturday I had the honor of shooting Rachel + Sam's romantic winter wedding which felt as though it was forever in the making. These two high school sweethearts are one of the sweetest duo's you will ever meet + I'm so lucky I got to be a part of their day. From his jewel-toned tux + her flowy long sleeved gown with pearls they gave off major romantic vibes between the two of them. We shot their portraits at one of my favorite places, The Tripp House, and her flowers were done by the always beautiful McCarthy-Remick Flowers. I shot her sister's wedding a few years ago and I always love when I get work with my favorite families over and over <3 Enjoy a few favorites from over the weekend.

When I think of these two the first thing that comes to mind is the way Scott looks at Lisa. He truly looks at her as if she's the only person in the room and with such a look of love and admiration. Lisa is so sweet + reserved which compliments Scott's more outgoing personality and together they are truly each other's perfect match. When I met them for their engagement session two summers ago (view here) and found out we were shooting their photos at the same spot where her grandparents honeymooned 70 years earlier I knew these two were family oriented and so down to earth. Their ceremony + reception took place on a cooler July afternoon at the beautiful Stone Hedge Golf Club. It rained just before their portraits and then a little during but it didn't both these two in the slightest =) One of my favorite ceremony events ever took place during theirs when the officiant asked guests to come up and join hands with Lisa + Scott for a prayer. Love. Enjoy a few favorites from their wedding this past summer.

Lindsi + Dave | Sunset Anniversary Session

Sunset Annivesary Session in Moscow PA During Golden Hour

I first met Lindsi + Dave almost exactly a year ago at a wedding after going back and forth through email a little bit. After a few reschedules and session changes we finally got to meet up for a fun sunset anniversary session the day after Dave's birthday this fall. I LOVE these two and they truly made it sooo easy to capture their love + relationship. These are anniversary photos but don't they look like engagement photos?! They are so sweet together and so incredibly easy to be around. I was really hoping that we got some good sun and we had the BEST glowy sunlight for a solid five minutes. I hope I get to see these two for years to come!! Here are some favorites from their glowy sunset anniversary session in Moscow.
