Grace and Damon Part 2 | Stylish Chelsea NYC and Hoboken Engagement Session | NYC Wedding Photographer

If you missed the first part of this blog post, STOP, and go look at it here right now. It will explain why I adore these two so much.

We wanted to have the second part of their engagement session be closer to home for these two so we strolled around Hoboken, visited their favorite Deli, and enjoyed the evening. I hope you look at these photos and can't tell that it was probably 40 degrees outside. These two have a love that is so warm that anytime I look back at these photos all I feel is warm sun and love. 

These two have just under two months left before they tie the knot and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for them.

Andrea & Kyle | Traditional Virginia Rust Manor Wedding Highlights | Virginia Wedding Photographer

Andrea and Kyle had a beautiful traditional wedding ceremony and reception at the STUNNING Rust Manor House in Virginia. They celebrated with their closest family and friends in a religious ceremony on the lawn. It was beautiful and I can swear tears filled my eyes when they finished with a group prayer with their bridal party. It was a stunning day and I especially love the images of all of their special details!

Jasmin & Mark's Philadelphia In-Home Maternity Session | Philadelphia Maternity Photographer

Jasmin and her husband are transplants from Germany currently living in Pennsylvania for work. They wanted some photos to commemorate their last weeks as a family of two and Jasmin wanted some photos to remember her experience being pregnant. These two were so prepared for their darling little Raphael to enter the world, having decorated the nursery with a mix of German language and symbols of their nickname for their lovely baby boy.

Jasmin also wanted some empowering fashion magazine-esque solo portraits to remember carrying her baby boy. Is she not the fiercest mama?

Paige & Ricky | Playful and Intimate Lancaster PA In-Home Couple's Session | Philadelphia PA Couple's Photographer

It's not often I get to photograph other photographers, but when I do it's truly a magical and creative experience. Ricky is a fine art photographer and musician and Paige is a hair stylist and model. Talk about a talented couple! 

Together these two are so playful, passionate, and intimate. They were such a joy to be around and I loved getting to photograph them. Their joy and laughs were contagious. Plus they have great taste in music so what's better than a jammin' session?

Courtney & Steve | Cozy In-Home First Anniversary Session | Lancaster PA Wedding Photographer

Courtney and Steve love to stay at home and cuddle up with their dog Maisie, spending quality time with each other in between the craziness of life. So it made perfect sense that that's what they should do for their anniversary session. Their relationship has a strong foundation in hand-written letters so for the icing on the cake (pun intended) they wrote and read letters to each other about their first year of marriage and their hopes for their future.

This session was full of love, giggles, cuddles, and dancing along to the song that christened their first dance as man and wife.

Miss A Lace Love Babe | Boudoir

When I first laid eyes upon all the fabulous lacy garments Miss A brought me my eyes lit up (especially the pastels!). It's a common boudoir misconception that to look sexy you need to stick to dark, moody, saturated colors. Well news flash: your clothes don't make you sexy, YOU MAKE YOU SEXY! You could dress in paper bag and you can still smolder! That goes for everyone!

Miss A also asked me if I thought she should plan her hair so that you couldn't see the magenta ends. My reaction was :O OF course she shouldn't hide them! They are part of her self expression, her personality. Don't hide parts of yourself. You're beautiful!
