When Zach and Danielle booked with me for their 2017 wedding, we instantly hit it off sitting at Starbucks chatting about all of their details and plans! Zach’s parents live near Lake Wallenpaupack in the Poconos, nestled on some seriously GORGEOUS property! This is where he proposed to Danielle, so they thought it would be super special and fun to have their engagement photos taken here. I was on board immediately!
My husband, pup and I packed up the car and made a day trip out of our excursion up north! It was the perfect Sunday afternoon. Zach and Danielle fit together so naturally and effortlessly. I’m so honored to be their wedding photographer and to have had the chance to spend the evening with them, laughing and getting creative. We spent the first half of the session on Zach’s parents property, then ended the evening on his grandparents property right down the road.
After seeing all the different homes and lands and scenery, Caleb and I couldn’t stop day dreaming about moving to this heavenly area. We settled for the hopes of one day owning a cabin/hunting land out this way, fingers crossed!
Enojy all of my favorite images!
Matt and Ariel are two of the funnest, sweetest, cutest couples I’ve ever met. This was one of those sessions that I just couldn’t put my camera down! I love when my job allows me to push past “the normal”; when I can feel myself enter into a place of creativity flooding my being. It’s such an amazing feeling and I’m so honored my clients choose to let me in their life for special occasions to create special memories. It’s not just about the actual pose or photograph. It’s about how you felt when taking that photograph. The smells, the songs you favored that time in your life, the feeling of laughing and kissing the one you’re in love with, newly engaged preparing for your wedding, all those kinds of things. And then I get to step in and document creative photographs to embody that time in your life, for you to look back on and always remember those memories. AH. It’s so awesome.
This session was one that completely re-motivated and inspired me last year and has me so excited for all of my 2015 weddings and couples. Matt and Ariel instantly felt like friends and were just so darn photogenic. Though it’s super hard to choose, I think my favorite shot is the black and white holding hands image. Which is yours!?

Gabby and Sean were such a joy to photograph because of their love for life, each other, and FUN. These two definitely know how to have a good time. In our short time together, we joked, laughed, and found a way to make a cold, windy afternoon an all-around blast. We spent the morning diving into their love story and finding ways to capture the pure and beautiful love they have for each other on camera. I am so looking forward to their September wedding and getting to photograph their love and joy all over again!
I am so excited to share these images with you all! Bethany has been one of my best friends ever since 8th grade when we met on the school bus and started going to school together (so like, 10+ years). We also happen to be neighbors, fellow-country-lovers, girls-night-fanatics, hiking/adventure partners, AND.. one anothers bridesmaids. Beth is like a sister to me and has filled my memory jar with countless funny, serious, crazy memories. I’m pretty sure she knows more about me than anyone else; she’s become one of those people to me that you hope are always in your life. We’ve been through hook-ups, break-ups, and make-ups with one another.. we’ve seen each other at our worst with guys and at our best. We’ve laughed together, and cried together. Being through all of that together makes it all the more sweet to see someone you care so much about FINALLY getting their “fairytale”, their Mr. Right, their true love. I can’t think of anyone who is more deserving of this.
When Chris started talking to me about his proposal plans I wanted to have a giggle-fest with Beth (but obviously couldn’t)! The minute she texted me the exciting news I pretty much exploded! I don’t think I could’ve kept the happy news a secret from her much longer! Chris, you’re such a sweet, hard-working, kind, humble, loyal, trust-worthy, loving man! Those characteristics shine through you with only a few times of hanging out. I truly believe that the way a man treats a girl is reflected in how she carries herself – and I have never seen Bethany more happy, confident, alive and glowing than she is now with you in her life. I can’t wait to get to know you more throughout the years. Bring on the married-double-dates!
We started off our session at the farm Bethany boards her horse at and finished up on the farm that Chris and his family owns/runs. The sun was magical and I couldn’t have asked for cuter subjects to “shoot”.
Bethany, you got your southern-country-cowboy-cutie you’ve always prayed for! YAY! Enjoy these images I captured from our time together!
Cody and Sierra were such a dream to photograph! Sierra is an aspiring photographer, and one of the few I’ve met that are super comfortable both behind AND in front of it. She contacted me to take some fun photos of her and her boyfriend back when I was running a mini-shoot promo. All of Sierras thrifted suitcases, cameras and accessories were the perfect combo for this vintage-styled shoot. Cody was such a sweet-heart, you only have to be around him for a few minutes to pick up on his genuine, kind, good-hearted personality. They duo compliment one another perfectly which is good because.. THEY JUST GOT ENGAGED! We were literally talking about their future plans at the shoot and then a few days later on FB I see the announcement! Cody must have been peeing his pants in excitement knowing he was about to propose while Sierra and I were having a girl-talk moment about it. I gotta give guys props- I don’t know how they are so good at keeping it a secret because I’m pretty sure I’d be bursting at the seems or doing some crazy dance to keep myself sane while people are asking me if an engagement is in the works. But then again, I suck at hiding my excitement/keeping secrets, ha ha!
Enjoy these vintage styled photos!
