Alyssa + Scotty, Lewisburg, PA Engagement Session

I had maybe the most fun I've had during an engagement session with these two lovebirds. So much genuine emotion, laughs, and interaction that I absolutely adore...THESE are the kinds of sessions that make my heart sing.

I think we can all quickly pick out the kinds of photos where couples look especially posed and uncomfortable, and we all know they make me absolutely criiiiinnnnggeee. With each engagement session, I've dug deeper into getting to know my couples on a personal level so that when the camera is out, they feel more comfortable giving me genuine interaction. Scotty actually said at the end of our three hour shenanigans, "That was so much fun!" Can you picture YOUR boyfriend/fiance/husband saying that? I nearly fell over dead in the field right there. Now THAT is what I wanna hear.

Ladies and gents, I present to you Alyssa and Scotty, engaged in a wheat field in late June. Two fun-loving beautiful people with well-curated outfits against a beautiful backdrop. But I don't think you'll see so much of that as you will the way he looks at her, how her face crinkles when she laughs, the way she sunk into his arms when he carried her at the end of our session.

Please people, don't let someone photograph the way you two look. Make sure you hire someone who captures the essence of who you are when you're together. Why would you have it any other way?

Interested in chatting about a session? I love love in all its forms: families, mommas, anniversaries, engagements, weddings (duh). I'm booking weddings for 2018 and 2019, but have a few openings for the remainder of 2017 for other sessions, so snag 'em before they're gone.

 

 

Heather + Frank | Engaged, Lewisburg, PA

Oh Heather and Frank. They are the kind of people I felt instantly comfortable around - easygoing and fun, laid back and kind. They initially decided against an engagement session when they booked me, but called me up about a month ago and said Jordan & Pete's woodsy session totally convinced them. And so I met them at Heather's grandpa's woodsy cabin in New Berlin where we made a fire and drank some beers and frolicked around until sunset.

 

The Samuels Family // In Home Lifestyle Session

Oh the Samuels family. They opened their home and their hearts to me one February afternoon, showed me their rawness and their honest lives and trusted my eyes and my lens to capture their everyday, and it was beautiful. I spent several hours there having tea parties, blowing bubbles, eating ice cream. The following images are where my heart is: authentic, unposed lifestyle sessions full of grit and love.

Not anyone who says, “I’m going to be
  careful and smart in matters of love,”
who says, “I’m going to choose slowly,”
but only those lovers who didn’t choose at all
but were, as it were, chosen
by something invisible and powerful and uncontrollable
and beautiful and possibly even
unsuitable —
only those know what I’m talking about
in this talking about love.
