November 2013 | Behind the Scenes

  • The Workshop Experience

this is going to be SUCH a tease!! I can’t share the FULL styled shoot because it’s being submitted and we’re crossing our little fingers for a feature so that everyone’s hard work can be shown off to the world! :) I seriously can’t thank Amanda from Anthomanic and all of the fabulous vendors for making the shoot happen! That girl just continuously blows me away with her talent! I can’t wait to share the shoot!! I will be sharing the September workshop shoot soon and it was just beyond lovely so get excited!!

A Fall Penn State Engagement Shoot | State College, PA

  • Joe + Emily | Engaged Part 1

I can’t decide if this is an easier post to write or if it’s harder!!! It’s easy because this is my sister’s engagement post!!! But it’s hard because I have a lifetime of things that I could say about her!! :) Before I get into how much I love Joe and Emy, let me explain that this was an impromptu engagement session! They got engaged on Saturday and then Michael and I drove up on Monday for a surprise visit! Emy was shocked to say the least! We met Joe’s sweet family, grabbed brunch and then went to campus to meet two of Joe’s sisters!

A Waterfront Maryland Wedding

  • Kevin + Anna Grace

This day has been SO anticipated for quite a long time!! The beautiful bed and breakfast overlooking the water was FULL of bridesmaids and excitement when I arrived!! I hugged AG and immediately saw familiar faces around the room. I knew it was going to be an amazing day and I was right!! Anna Grace is a photographer and graphic designer and so she MADE time for her pictures! It’s just incredible all that we accomplished before the sunset and Kevin is such a trooper!! I told AG just how lucky she was to have a guy that’s willing to take pictures on docks, in fields, sit in the grass, walk to the beach and pull off on the side of the road for portraits with a teal wall! Kevin just smiled and nuzzle her perfectly. They have SO many beautiful portraits! It was such a wonderful day! As Anna Grace walked down the aisle, tears were streaming down her face.
