Rustic Fall Wedding

I cannot say enough how much I love love love this rustic fall wedding. From the cowboy boots the bridesmaids wore to Jennifer’s mermaid gown this wedding was the perfect combination of romance and country. There were so many favorite elements to this wedding especially Jennifer and Nick’s first look. It definitely brought tears to my eyes seeing how much they love each other and how excited they were to tie the knot together. It was very magical that they were able to say I do under an arch way of flowers too. The reception was a blast and guests were in awe when Jennifer changed into a second dress at the reception. My personal favorite factor to this wedding was that Jennifer and Nick gave a donation to the all PAWS organization in lieu of favors.

Words from the sweetest bride—I had always known I would be a mermaid on my wedding day. At La Bella Donna my wedding dress was the 3rd dress I tried on! I knew it was the one because I was jumping up and down! My favorite part of the day was our First Look, it was special to have that alone time before we said I do! And to see each other. I’ll never forget his face. My most memorable part of the day was walking down the aisle. The weather was beautiful and crisp. The scenery was gorgeous and I loved the song I chose to walk to. (All I want is you, U2) It was a moment I imagined over and over again and it was perfect.My favorite detail of the day was the cowboy boots! I loved wearing them who my formal dress and then later with my party dress! My bridesmaids looked awesome in them as well. It brought such a fun vibe to our wedding!

the sweet scent of powder

and a kiss on the nose!

Adorable Puppy Filled Engagement

I’m just going to go out and say it. I love these two. Bring your puppy to your engagement shoot?! YES PLEASE!! An adorable puppy filled engagement session is definitely my favorite kind of session. If you don’t know by now I adore all puppies. Puppies and photography are my two biggest passions so if you want to include your furry baby  in your engagement shoot, I love it! Michelle and Chris decided to include there puggle Roxy and she was so well behaved. Ridley Creek State park made the perfect backdrop for this fall engagement session.  She even wore a cute hand made sign that read tying the knot ( from Gracegraffiti ). Gracegraffiti creates a ton of my custom made props which I include in many of my sessions. You can find Gracegraffiti on Etsy too.  I cannot wait for there wedding in April.

Bark in the Park- Delaware County SPCA

I am honored that I was chosen to photograph Bark in the Park for the Delaware County SPCA ( Rose Tree Park Media, PA). The Bark in the Park happens annually, but this was the first year the event through a 5k into the mix. It was truly a special day at the Bark in the Park & Fall Festival. Human and dog runners took the park by storm on a mission to save lives. The day followed with a fall festival including food trucks, a dj, contests and so many vendors. Thanks to all who participated in the first-ever 5K Run and stopped by to enjoy the festivities and give back for a good cause. Thanks to you, we raised a record nearly $100,000 to help save more lives AND processed 21 adoptions. The day could not of been more beautiful, weather included. I am so happy to have been apart of such a fantastic day be causes its all about the pups!!

Halloween-Queen

Tis the season for pumpkins, ghosts and all things Halloween inspired. I love Halloween and was inspired to do a dark magical Halloween-Queen bridal session. This session is a little less ghoulish and completely high glamour. I love the gold eyelashes we used for this session to add some bling. Not only did we have a gorgeous black tulle skirt from my favorite fashion designer AmericanBlossoms but it even included black wings. Bridal sessions are a great way to get to know your photographer and have some fun. If you are looking to do a bridal session and are daring enough to wear black you are in for a real treat. I hope you enjoy this Halloween inspiration and feel inspired!!
