Alyssa + Anthony | Conestoga House & Gardens | Lancaster, PA Engagement Photographer

Lancaster is such a pretty area, and I’ve wanted to shoot more there, so when Alyssa + Anthony were up for a session at the Conestoga House & Gardens, I was elated! This location is STUNNING, and it’s almost like a tiny Longwood Gardens. Read more about what their displays include, or better yet, go on a tour! The history is also really fascinating.

Thanks to my sweet friends for coming out and modeling in the heat that day! It was so hot, but you’d never be able to tell by the photos. They did such a great job; I was so impressed!

I’ll see you guys before you know it! ❤ 2017-07-24_00012017-07-24_00022017-07-24_00032017-07-24_00042017-07-24_00052017-07-24_00062017-07-24_00072017-07-24_00082017-07-24_00092017-07-24_00102017-07-24_00112017-07-24_00122017-07-24_00132017-07-24_00142017-07-24_00152017-07-24_00162017-07-24_00172017-07-24_00182017-07-24_00192017-07-24_00202017-07-24_00212017-07-24_00222017-07-24_00232017-07-24_00242017-07-24_00252017-07-24_00262017-07-24_00272017-07-24_00282017-07-24_00292017-07-24_00302017-07-24_00312017-07-24_00322017-07-24_00332017-07-24_00342017-07-24_00352017-07-24_00362017-07-24_00372017-07-24_00382017-07-24_00392017-07-24_0040

Kim + Dalton | Dallastown, PA Engagement Photographer

Kim + Dalton met one day when she was doing her student teaching and he was a substitute teacher at Annville Elementary. She was in her senior year of college at Lebanon Valley. Dalton was an Annville, PA native and graduated two years before her from Messiah College. They were both walking into the elementary school and Dalton held the door open for Kim. She describes it as truly being love at first sight.

This adorable couple dated for a little over two years before Dalton proposed on New Year’s Eve! They were in Northampton, MA, for this Canadian band, Enter the Haggis‘ New Year’s Extravaganza. Little did Kim know, Dalton had been planning for a while with the band members.

On New Year’s Eve, Dalton had them perform their song, “Cut the Lights,” which she had heard minutes before meeting Dalton. The lyrics say, “Love will come around at the strangest time,” and at that at the time, she was pretty frustrated with relationships, also finding out that Dalton was, too. Needless to say, that particular song became a really special song to Kim with that timing. On New Year’s Eve, the band played it, and during the instrumental break, they asked the couple to come up on stage, and Dalton got down on one knee and asked Kim to marry him!

It was such a special proposal to her, and it was even more special because the guys in the band have known her since she was 13 and have become some of her greatest friends. They were also surrounded by many other fellow fans/friends whom they’ve gotten to know throughout all the years Kim has been going to the shows. It really was the perfect time and setting! The ETH guys are some of the greatest people she knows. Kim learned later that the guys worked so hard to make it all perfect for her. They did multiple sound checks and messaged/talked to Dalton a lot. So it was incredible… PERFECT.

Kim and Dalton are actually the winners of my very first wedding giveaway! They will be getting married on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA, which is where Kim’s mom graduated from college. As a child, she got Kim involved with the college’s summer enrichment camp programs, and later, as she became too old to participate herself, she actually became an Irish dance instructor at the camps for 5 years in a row before she started her college career. Kim has been dreaming of getting married at Wilson College ever since she was a little girl. It has a beautiful campus with grassy open quads and a gorgeous horse barn and facility.

Congratulations on this exciting, new season of your lives, Kim + Dalton! I’m so happy for you and I can’t wait to celebrate with you on your wedding day!2017-07-20_00012017-07-20_00022017-07-20_00032017-07-20_00042017-07-20_00052017-07-20_00062017-07-20_00072017-07-20_00082017-07-20_00092017-07-20_00102017-07-20_00112017-07-20_00122017-07-20_00132017-07-20_00142017-07-20_00152017-07-20_00162017-07-20_00172017-07-20_00182017-07-20_00192017-07-20_00202017-07-20_00212017-07-20_00222017-07-20_00232017-07-20_00242017-07-20_00252017-07-20_00262017-07-20_00272017-07-20_00282017-07-20_00292017-07-20_00302017-07-20_00312017-07-20_00322017-07-20_00332017-07-20_0034.jpg

Jenna, Kody, Amber, and Megan | Best Friends | Lebanon, PA High School Senior Photographer

Representing TKP has it’s perks, let me tell ya! And, if you don’t believe me, just ask Jenna! She was one of my 2016-2017 high school senior reps, and I just love her! She has won a few sessions from me just because of the amount of booked referrals she brought along my way. How awesome of her! I’m so grateful.

She won a best friends session after graduation (I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE’S DONE WITH HIGH SCHOOL!), so she brought her boyfriend, Kody, and her two BFF’s, Amber and Megan.

They thought of an awesome theme; AMERICA! They looked the part, that’s for sure!

Thank you guys so much for coming out and having a little photo shoot! You guys rock! Best of luck to you as your start your college careers next month. 🙂2017-07-14_00252017-07-14_00262017-07-14_00272017-07-14_00282017-07-14_00292017-07-14_00302017-07-14_00312017-07-14_00322017-07-14_00332017-07-14_00342017-07-14_00352017-07-14_00362017-07-14_00372017-07-14_00382017-07-14_00392017-07-14_00402017-07-14_00412017-07-14_00422017-07-14_00432017-07-14_00442017-07-14_00452017-07-14_0046

Courtney + Jared Kreiser | Fairview Golf Course | Lebanon, PA Wedding Photographer

Where, oh where do I start? Courtney and Jared are the epitome of a down-to-earth, sweet & genuine couple. I just LOVE them, and I know you will, too! Read more about their love story here.

Their wedding day was filled with so much fun, beauty, charm, and moments of patience during the storm that came through. All the rain we had that day only set us back by a half an hour.

While we waited for the storm to pass, Courtney and her girls, Jared and his guys, and all of their friends and families either hung out inside or waited safely back at the church. As soon as it ended, the shuttle bus brought everyone back and the ceremony soon began!

The wedding took place at Courtney’s sister, Samantha’s house, and what a beautiful setting it was! The landscaping was just gorgeous (awesome job, Tim!). There were so many cute spots on the property for photos. I seriously loved everything about the Kreiser wedding… the handmade signs and boutonniere holders (made out of bullet casings) made by the bride herself, the beautiful flowers, the color scheme, all the glitter and gold, and most importantly, the love & joy that surrounded this dear couple all throughout the day!

Courtney and Jared, I can’t thank you enough for having me be a part of your special day! It’s truly an honor to work with such kind and loving couples. I feel so blessed to know you! Congratulations again! I’m so excited to see where married life takes you. ❤2017-07-12_00012017-07-12_00022017-07-12_00032017-07-12_00042017-07-12_0005.jpg2017-07-12_00062017-07-12_00072017-07-12_00082017-07-12_00092017-07-12_00102017-07-12_00112017-07-12_00122017-07-12_00132017-07-12_00142017-07-12_00152017-07-12_00162017-07-12_00172017-07-12_00182017-07-12_00192017-07-12_00202017-07-12_00212017-07-12_00222017-07-12_00232017-07-12_00242017-07-12_00252017-07-12_00262017-07-12_00272017-07-12_0028.jpg2017-07-12_00292017-07-12_00302017-07-12_00312017-07-12_00322017-07-12_00332017-07-12_00342017-07-12_00352017-07-12_00362017-07-12_00372017-07-12_00382017-07-12_00392017-07-12_00402017-07-12_00412017-07-12_00422017-07-12_00432017-07-12_00442017-07-12_00452017-07-12_00462017-07-12_00472017-07-12_0048.jpg2017-07-12_0049.jpg2017-07-12_00502017-07-12_00512017-07-12_00522017-07-12_00532017-07-12_00542017-07-12_00552017-07-12_00562017-07-12_00572017-07-12_00582017-07-12_00592017-07-12_00602017-07-12_00612017-07-12_00622017-07-12_00632017-07-12_00642017-07-12_00652017-07-12_00662017-07-12_00682017-07-12_00692017-07-12_00702017-07-12_00712017-07-12_00722017-07-12_00732017-07-12_00742017-07-12_00752017-07-12_00762017-07-12_00772017-07-12_00782017-07-12_00792017-07-12_00802017-07-12_00812017-07-12_00822017-07-12_00832017-07-12_00842017-07-12_00852017-07-12_0104.jpg2017-07-12_00862017-07-12_00872017-07-12_0097.jpg2017-07-12_0089.jpg2017-07-12_0088.jpg2017-07-12_00902017-07-12_00912017-07-12_00922017-07-12_00932017-07-12_00942017-07-12_00952017-07-12_00962017-07-12_00982017-07-12_00992017-07-12_01002017-07-12_01012017-07-12_01022017-07-12_0103.jpg2017-07-12_0105.jpg2017-07-12_0107.jpg2017-07-12_0114.jpg2017-07-12_0106.jpg2017-07-12_01082017-07-12_0118.jpg2017-07-12_01092017-07-12_01102017-07-12_01112017-07-12_01122017-07-12_01132017-07-12_01152017-07-12_01162017-07-12_01172017-07-12_01192017-07-12_01202017-07-12_01212017-07-12_01222017-07-12_01232017-07-12_01242017-07-12_01252017-07-12_01262017-07-12_01272017-07-12_01282017-07-12_01292017-07-12_01302017-07-12_01312017-07-12_01322017-07-12_01332017-07-12_0178.jpg2017-07-12_01342017-07-12_01352017-07-12_01362017-07-12_01372017-07-12_01382017-07-12_01392017-07-12_01402017-07-12_01412017-07-12_01422017-07-12_01432017-07-12_01442017-07-12_01452017-07-12_01462017-07-12_01472017-07-12_01482017-07-12_01492017-07-12_01502017-07-12_01512017-07-12_01522017-07-12_01532017-07-12_01542017-07-12_01552017-07-12_01562017-07-12_01572017-07-12_0175.jpg2017-07-12_01582017-07-12_01592017-07-12_01602017-07-12_01612017-07-12_0176.jpg2017-07-12_01622017-07-12_0177.jpg2017-07-12_01632017-07-12_01642017-07-12_01652017-07-12_0167.jpg2017-07-12_01682017-07-12_01692017-07-12_01702017-07-12_01712017-07-12_01722017-07-12_01732017-07-12_0174.jpg2017-07-12_0184.jpg2017-07-12_01792017-07-12_01802017-07-12_0185.jpg2017-07-12_01822017-07-12_0183.jpg2017-07-12_01872017-07-12_01882017-07-12_01892017-07-12_01902017-07-12_01912017-07-12_0192Thank you to Jared and his fellow firefighters for all they do!

Nikki + Adam | Lititz, PA Couples Photographer

Nikki + Adam got married last October and had a beautiful fall wedding at the Coleman Steigel Mansion. Check back here if you want to see their wedding photos.

I was so happy to see this dear couple again after almost 8 months! It was great catching up during our time together at the wildflower field.

As we were talking, we wondered who planted the flowers. This wildflower field has attracted lots of photographers and selfie-takers from all over! Nikki messaged me this morning and found our answer… “Jay Garber, President & CEO of Garber Metrology, planted the field, which he owns. His firm, a weighing and calibration company, is just down the road.

The flowers replaced a small farm field as Garber prepared to expand a vineyard on the corner lot. He planted a variety of perennials and annuals to support polinators and mimic beautification projects along highways. You can read more in the Lancaster newspaper.” (Thanks, Nikki!)

You two are just as beautiful as on your wedding day! Thanks for a fun session! ❤2017-07-06_00822017-07-06_00832017-07-06_00842017-07-06_00852017-07-06_00862017-07-06_00872017-07-06_00882017-07-06_00892017-07-06_0090
