Let us just begin by saying that if you don’t know Danielle, you need to know Danielle. A few months back, we started dreaming up a whimsical shoot along the Susquehanna and were pumped to have Danielle on board. With our vision in mind and our cameras in tow, we made the journey to our photo destination and had a ball. Let us also tell you that this little lady is a genius in front of a camera. We’re talking like beyond genius actually. She even face-plants it gracefully. We know this because it’s probable we witnessed this. Sorry, Danielle, we love you. We finished our shoot with a muted golden hour and candle goodness, hellllllooooo (insert praise hands.) Danielle also agreed to go in the water which was colder than we don’t even know what because it was just that cold. We were so thankful for our night together and can’t wait to share our images with you!
Tori and Julia
The first time I met Ryan and Alyssa, we were heading to the PA Farm Show on a double date and right away, I just knew they complimented each other so so well. My sweet guy, Tyler and Ryan have been best buds since forever (way back to the school bus days) so when R and A asked me to shoot their day in Colorado, I was wayyyy excited. So fun! Ryan and Alyssa were the sweetest throughout the process, leading up to their day and well after. Their day was not only an adventure for me and the team, but such a cool day to be a part of. They made Maddie, my second shooter and I feel like a part of the family. Their day had amazing views, the kindest family, sweet dance moves and so much love. I had the absolute best time being a part of it.
Check out Ryan and Alyssa’s wedding in Divide, Colorado!
Brian and Nicolina’s wedding was so so fun for Kelsey, my second shooter, and I to be a part of. They’re the kind of couple that you see them together and you just know that they make each other better. Whoop, whoop! Their day took place at the Stone Mill Inn with a country chic look and a cozy summer feel. They also had quite possibly the cutest ring bearer in well, the history of ever. At the wedding, I may have embarrassed myself thoroughly, falling off of a foldable chair during family photos… twice. I’m hoping everyone has forgotten about this at this point in time.
Annnnnyyyyways… BEHOLD! Please enjoy some of the team’s favorite images of B and N’s day!
When I first starting talking to Nick and Molly about the detailing of their day, I knew it was going to be so so special. Everything took place at Molly’s parent’s home and can I just say, HOLY MOLY that place is perfection. Molly’s mom made every detail herself that day and well, she is the boss at all things beautiful. Molly and Nick had their ceremony in the backyard and had a poolside reception and it just had the sweetest feel to it. There’s nothing like a wedding and celebration, in the place you grew up, put together by the people that love you most. Well I can only imagine. : ) Molly and Nick’s day was full of so much love and I just had the best time being apart of it!
I had always heard about this sweet Kayce Shoffner, and what a talented photographer she was, but had never had the chance to meet her. The Shoffner’s had planned their annual trip to disney and we decided it would probably be a pretty cool idea to capture their family in the sunshine state and how glad I am that we did! Kayce and Brett are just about the sweetest people and not to mention, the coolest parents to their two cuties. We ventured all around downtown Winter Garden, collected rocks, picked oranges from a bitty tree and collected just about every stick in town, or at least Avery did. How fun to have a job that brings such fun moments and nights into our lives.
It’s quite possible that Liz is the most photogenic human being on the planet, which is part of what made photographing her so a joy! I first met Liz during her college program at Disney World and absolutely fell in love with her positive energy and adventurous spirit. The night of our shoot, we set out in Orlando and spent the majority of our time at an abandoned property right outside of Liz’s apartment building where we got attacked by burrs… like the really big kind. I don’t think we have laughed harder or found more burr’s on ourselves than we did that day. After our shoot, I think it’s safe to say Liz has a future in modeling. I barely had to give her any sort of direction, these images are all her which is a pretty cool thing. She’s a cutie, that girl. Check out our adventure!
Its kind of crazy the way I have been able to get to know Leigha. I first met her when I hopped on a plane to audition for my adventures at Disney and we instantly clicked… and by that I mean I let her borrow my phone charger. Ha! Leigha and I talked our nerves out through the whole audition process and spent our time together goofing around and enjoying the whole experience. Towards the end of the audition, we got separated and I never got a hold of Leigha’s information. Little did I know, I would see her sooner than I thought. Fast forward a few months, I was getting ready at work, putting on my makeup, and I heard a door open. Naturally, I looked to see who was walking in and it was LEIGHA! Can you believe it?! Crazy how small this world really is. About 2 weeks ago, Leigha and I ventured out to take some head shots. Her boyfriend, Alex came along and ended up hoping in for a few photos too!
Here’s a few of my favorite images!
I met Cassi on my first day of Disney training and it’s really quite comical to see how our friendship has evolved.The first day that we ever hung out, we went to the Millenia mall where I told her of this trick I had just learned while buying underwear. I was told to wrap it around your neck and that it will be sure to fit so I proceeded to test out this theory right there in the Victoria’s Secret. As I am doing this, Cass walks away, both red in the face and hysterically laughing. After about 30 minutes of not being able to find her, I was convinced that I had been ditched. After what seemed like an eternity, I ended up finding her and told her that I thought I had been left because she figured out how weird I was and then she proceeded to laugh even harder. I’m not sure why, but meeting Cassi, I felt completely comfortable and myself from the start, making weird jokes and all. As it turns out she liked it, and now she’s my roommate and stuck with me. Oh and in case you were wondering, the underwear trick is a success! You’re welcome. Cassi’s boyfriend, Tim came for a visit and we all took a trip to Lake Eola park in downtown Orlando. It was a pretty fancy place with a city line view and swans and DUCKS galore so I was in heaven.
Check out these two lovebirds and our adventure!
About three weeks back, a very handsome boy flew down here to Orlando for a visit and well, I was just about the happiest girl. Thinking back to our week, I remember our trip to Cocoa beach, exploring Downtown Disney, all of the meals that we attempted to cook, getting caught in an intense storm, the large amount of ice cream we consumed and our adventures in general but beyond that, I don’t remember much. I came across a quote the other day that read, “we were together and I forget the rest,” and that pretty much sums it up. My favorite memory from the week was our visit to the cute little food trucks in downtown Kissimmee. Tyler ordered arancini and I got chicken dumplings with a bed of edamame. We had both been picking from each dish and then I noticed Ty spitting in the grass and almost gagging. Turns out, no one had ever shown him how to eat edamame from the pod and he had been not only chewing on the outer shell, but the empty ones I had already “slobbered on” and piled up. Obviously one of us thought this was way more funny than the other.
Sean and I play together on the worship team at my church and the night he came in and told us all that he was engaged, I basically peed myself with excitement. But, I’m a girl and we’re allowed to have those moments. The night of Sean and Camille’s engagements, we headed over to Sean’s parent’s huge backyard which was AWESOME! Towards the middle of our shoot, Sean headed inside to grab a blanket and when he came back out, his dogs made their great escape! The two kept finding a way to sneak into our photos so, in many of the images, I’m actually petting the dogs with one hand and taking the photo with other (I know, impressive.) All in all, it was a perfect night with beauuuutiful weather, cackles and one super sweet couple. Check out these two models!
