Kat & Jeff’s engagement shoot was one of my favorite to date! The weather was perfect, the fall colors and lighting were gorgeous, and Kat and Jeff have such a natural chemistry between the two of them that it made my job so easy! About one minute into my consult with them, I knew that […]

When Brittany applied for a job at Sabor de Cuba, she never thought that it would lead to her meeting her soulmate. Mike’s brother, Nick, is the owner of Sabor de Cuba and Mike worked for him as a server. Brittany was hired as a hostess and after working together, the two realized there was […]

Alex and Lauren’s wedding was a series of firsts for Brent and I.  It was the first Penn State themed wedding we ever photographed (or attended for that matter) and let me just say, they rocked their theme! It was also the first wedding we photographed where the bride seemed more nervous about the Penn […]

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 […]

When Jessica and David told me they were thinking of going with a gunpowder and lace theme for their wedding the first venue I thought of was The Lodges at Gettysburg.
