Alyssa and Jim had the most incredible October wedding at The Farm at Eagles Ridge. I think I spent the entire day either trying not to cry or fanning myself because the chemistry between those two is insane. The weather was perfect, barely a breeze, everything went smoothly. And holy crow guys, their first look. I can’t even look at the pictures without my eyes starting to tear up. The way Jim looked at Alyssa and took care of her and held her all day is the stuff of novels and legend.

Most people don't meet their soulmates in high school. But you only have to spend five minutes with Afton and Josiah to see that they are one of those rare perfect matches. It's cliche but it's true - when they look at each other, there's a massive spark. And not only are they adorable together, but they're also so funny and a joy to be around!

I’ve been friends with Ashley since the fourth grade so when she asked me to be her wedding photographer, I squealed with excitement! And when I got to meet her amazing husband Brandon at their engagement session, I was so happy for her because he’s just the best! They love each other fiercely and are really and truly each other’s best friends. Growing up we always talked boys and relationships and all of the fun and drama that goes with it! Knowing that Ashley was marrying such a kind, giving and funny man (and I’m tearing up just writing this) made the day even more special.

One of the most commonly asked questions I get is "Where should we have our photoshoot?" I always encourage my clients to choose somewhere that feels like you and to think outside the box a bit. Maybe your gorgeous venue or you have a friend, family member, or coworker that has access to a beautiful farm or property that you wouldn't have thought of initially. But, if you want to know my favorites in the Lancaster and Harrisburg area that are free, not super busy, and close by - check out my list below!

Wedding days are often described as perfect, but Megan and Ryan's truly was. Everything went on without a single hitch and everyone had such a great time! It was the perfect kind of bright overcast day and it wasn't too hot, which is rare at the end of summer. When I walked into the farmhouse to see Megan and her bridesmaids in the morning, they were all relaxing in adorable matching robes sipping mimosas from their customized champagne flutes. Can every morning start like that? 😎

Samantha and Jordan brought their adorable pet bunny for portraits and her flower girls were her grandmas. Do you need any more incentive to check out their adorable details? 😍 They had the perfect sunny summer day up at Bell Mountain Estates. And when we arrived for the getting ready portion of the day, her bridesmaids greeted me with open arms and offers of any assistance needed. Sam and Jordan picked the most wonderful friends and family to be part of her wedding and they all made such a huge impact on an already wonderful day!
