9 Years ago today as the sun set over Assateague Island, Brent Rader got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! At the time, Brent and I had been together for five years and I knew the proposal was coming. In May, we went ring shopping at Golden Nugget Jewelers in Philly […]

I love this couple. They are sweet, humble, funny, and love and serve the Lord. Matt and Sarah grew up only ten minutes from each other but didn’t meet until college when my matchmaking sister Rebecca (whose wedding you can find here) introduced the two of them. Although they shared classes and had secretly noticed each […]

Get excited cuz this Linganore Winecellars engagement shoot features Sammy Stakem who in my unbiased opinion is one of the coolest people ever and has also been one of my best friends since 4th grade. If you need proof, below you will find a picture from my 4th grade birthday party in which I (the […]

I have literally been counting down the days to this wedding for months now! I have always wanted to photograph an Antrim 1844 wedding and when Sara contacted me about photographing her wedding there I couldn’t have been more excited. I was thrilled not only about the gorgeous venue but also about getting to be […]

Every now and then I meet a couple who were absolutely, beyond a shadow of a doubt meant to be together.  Sammi and Ben are one of those couples.  High school sweethearts and English teachers, these two have a shared love for literature, theater, Dungeons and Dragons, all things nerdy (Sammi’s words, not mine!) and […]

Frankie and Kendra are a couple whose love for each other shows in every aspect of their lives. Whenever they are together they are constantly laughing, hugging, stealing glances at each other, and just being all around adorable. When they’re apart, just mention the name of their significant other and their eyes light up. I have […]

I feel so blessed by all the amazing couples we have had the opportunity to work with this summer and for our final wedding of the summer, I couldn’t have enjoyed working with Andrea & Davin more.  I also felt blessed that Andrea & Davin’s Links at Gettysburg wedding was a balmy 75 degrees – […]

Crystal is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She exudes kindness, is incredibly thoughtful, and has been an absolute joy to work with and get to know better over the past year and a half. I’m so happy that she has found Ryan because it is obvious that the two just get […]

If there is one thing I’ve learned from shooting weddings, it’s that something unexpected is bound to happen.  When storm clouds started rolling in thirty minutes before the ceremony start time, Tanner and Meghan remained optimistic.  It wasn’t supposed to rain, but that wasn’t stopping the sky from getting dark. Then, literally right before the […]

When Sammi first reached out to me about wanting to find a “fairytale” like location for her engagement shoot, I was a little stumped. I started brainstorming, researching gardens, ruins, etc. and finally heard about Brookside Gardens. When I mentioned the possibility of a Brookside Gardens engagement shoot to Sammi it turned out that her […]
