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!!

A love affair

Tiffany and Gregory’s wedding day was truly a love affair filled with so many gorgeous details, and so much more. They had a gorgeous outdoor wedding at the Cedarbrook Country Club where family and friends surrounded them in prayer.  From Tiffany’s beautiful fitted lace gown to the blush tones in her bouquet all of the details fit together perfectly. Tiffany’s grandmother even baked her wedding cake using homemade buttercream. For favors they gave out mini s’mores kits for every guest. What better way to end a reception but with sparkler send off . It was so much fun to see all of Tiffany and Gregory’s guest cheer with excitement with the sparkler send off.
