A Downtown Philadelphia Wedding

  • Kevin + Erika

I seriously feel like I have known these two for YEARS. Why? Because this journey started long before their wedding day! It begin when Kevin sent me a very well articulated email about how he was planning to propose to his girlfriend Erika but he needed my help! Yikes!! These types of things make me so excited and SO nervous! Kevin surprised Erika with a coaching session in April of last year. He drove her down and during her headshots, he proposed!! So this wedding was really special for us because we have literally been there for EVERY part of the process!! From the proposal during the coaching session to their early morning engagement session in State College, PA, we’ve shot it all! We even got to meet their little fur baby, Lilee! Saturday we had the honor of meeting the rest of their family, friends and everyone who loves them the most!

Why We Love Leather Craftsmen

  • Legacy Albums

6 YEARS of shooting, I’ve ordered quite a few albums. I’ve been to a few tradeshows and I’ve seen a lot of different album companies. Now I’m not blogging and saying that any company is worse than the other because honestly, I’ve only ever ordered ONE other sample album from one other company besides Leather Craftsmen. I’ll be the first to admit that there are some VERY desirable aspects to other album companies…. streamlined ordering systems, crazy fast turn around times, community within their users, etc.

The Wedding Flim

  • Joe + Emily | Part 4

you think you’ve seen the last of my sister’s wedding posts…. I surprise you with one more!!! :) Seriously, I should pay my sister and new brother in law for giving me so much fun blog content this wedding season! It has been so much fun being a part of this exciting season of their life! Now if I had to list ONE thing from my own wedding day that I wish I had done differently, it would have been to hire a videographer. I should have invested in that… what was I thinking?! Thankfully a sweet friend of ours took clips on my old Mark II and we do have a handmade film that means the world to me!!!!
