Though I don’t get to shoot senior sessions as much as I used to, they have always been one of my favorite’s! I completely love one-on-one portrait time. It really allows creativity to flow, especially when the person is as laid back and easy going as Katie! Talk about photogenic. We met up at Lititz Springs Park over the Summer and had a blast switching up outfits and locations around the park. It’s fun to look back and see how much I’ve grown and how my editing has evolved just from this past Summer. Here are a few of my favorites for you to enjoy!
This past Summer since Tori was working/living at Disney World, I had the honor of photographing Ryan and Alyssa’s engagement photos for her! Tori and her boyfriend Tyler are good friends of Alyssa and Ryans which makes it even sweeter. We are all heading out to Colorado in June to photograph their wedding and we couldn’t be more excited! It was so much fun meeting these two! We talked about their up-coming wedding and shared lots about our common love for the great West, all the while our legs got attacked by mosquitoes but it’s okay, the photos were totally worth it. Looking back on this session I am day dreaming hard about warm summer evenings..it’s so close I can almost taste it! Here are a few of my favorites from our time together!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE when people continue to ask me back to photograph their ever changing, growing lives! I met Kody and Brianne about 3 years ago and that’s when I first photographed little Karson. It’s such an honor to take updated family photos for this fun-loving family. Karson is such a ham, always adventuring around with his little blonde curls bouncing. The camera loves him! Here are some of my favorite images from our meet up over this past Summer at such a gorgeous, spacious park in Anneville, PA!
I am so excited to finally be sharing all of the amazing sessions and weddings I shot in 2014! I have some major blogging and catching up to do. I thought I’d start with this adorable little man, Mason. This was my second year photographing him and we already have the next date for 2015 on the calendar – I’m so pumped! Mason has such an outgoing personality! He didn’t hold back in front of the camera or shy away from serenading me with his little guitar. ADORABLE. It’s so great to not only capture someones special season in life, but to have the chance to follow them along throughout life and continue to capture the change and growth in all their different seasons. Here are a few of my favorite shots from our Summer play-date in the park.
While browsing the net, I saw a very interesting survey. NY Magazine asked more than a hundred brides what their biggest wedding mistakes were and what they could have done if they could turn back time and relive their big day!
Being in the photography business, my wife and I noticed that wedding photography (followed by flowers and cakes) was at the top of the list of what brides wish they spent more on. Well, we can’t say we were surprised. We already talked with a lot of brides who have been disappointed with their wedding pictures. They wish they could have spent more time looking for the right wedding photographer for their wedding.
Now, I’m not suggesting you to go and look for the most expensive wedding photographer out there. The most important factor in getting a photographer is your compatibility. How compatible are you with the styles and preferred designs of each other? Regardless if you get a $1000 photographer or a $8000 photographer, it’s your wedding day and these images will be the only thing you have to relive your wedding years down the road.
Beyond style, it’s essential to some brides to get both his and her looks during the ceremony. Spending a little more money on a second photographer is important in this situation. One photographer is not enough to cover everything. Two photographers is generally the sweet spot unless you have a guest list of 350+. Then it may be reasonable to add more.
There are also other helpful (and funny) tips like “reapplying lipstick”, “the flowers in the bathroom”, and “not wasting time talking to people you don’t know.”
