This is the day Jesse & Katharine wed at an intimate ceremony at The Country Club of York. The winter weather hit hard the night before knocking out power to the clubhouse, but that didn’t stop love…
I love it when strangers become friends! We started chatting with Kevin and Mandy from @188sqft about a year ago and since then have met them all across the country. Turns out Mandy is also a wedding photographer from Pennsylvania and lives on the road full time in an RV too. They recently camped next to us for a month in Northern California. It was fun capturing their adorable little home on wheels and 4 pets in this lifestyle session.
< Grizzly the cat was camera shy > I'll catch him next time! hahah.
Back by popular demand and extended dates, yay!! I'm excited to announce that I will be traveling back from California to York, PA soon to capture you. Spots are limited so contact me right away by emailing, texting or calling.. see info below for mini and full sessions.
MINI SESSION DETAILS
Dates? From September 26th - October 8th (weather permitting)
Location? York Pa / beautiful outdoor location to be determined closer to date.
Is this a themed session? This is a great flexible time during the seasons. I have some clients wanting a late summer feel, a fall theme, and some want to use these photos as their Christmas photos. Therefore, we'll be shooting in a neutral outdoor nature background so you can use them for anything, yay! You are welcome to bring along your own props based on your vision. For example, for a fall themed you can bring along pumpkins and a fun fall blanket... For Christmas you can dress in holiday colors and bring along simple Christmas props. Given the time frame of only 25 minutes just remember to keep it simple as there may not be tons of time to set up a huge scene :) If you're unsure, no worries. This doesn't have to fall under a themed category, we can keep it neutral for classic timeless images.
Length of session? 25 minutes
Price? $200 ($180 if you pay with green cash)
What do I get? A fun session and 15 beautifully edited images in your own online gallery for you to share, download and print as much as you want.
What type of portraits qualify for a mini session? Family (not extended), engagement, business profile headshots, children, puppies, and maternity.
What else do I need to know? Please be on time for your session. It’s important for us to stick to the blocked time schedule so that everyone can fairly be accommodated. Feel free to arrive early and hang out to let the kids decompress from the ride (you too, haha) Each session is a fun, breezy 25 minutes. Payment is due in full at the time of session. If you pay with cash, you get a $20 discount! I also take debit/credit cards if needed. For attire, I’ve created a fun inspirational Pinterest board for you -here-
FULL SESSION DETAILS

Thank you so much for choosing me to document your lives, it means so much to me. Much love~ Trinity
I met Torey, a photographer through social media and we happened to both be in Tucson at the time. It was fun trampling through the saguaros and capturing these two loves in the perfect golden sunset... Here's a little peek into our time together..
Josephine Love is a nationally published and award winning makeup artist with over 10 years of experience in the beauty industry. I recently worked with her on a 2 part series of a new ad campaign, check out her talents on this shoot with the beautiful Lucy Le'Lune
Katie & Dave's wedding was full of gorgeous florals, rolling hills and lots of pretty little details, here's a peek into their wedding story at Springfield Manor Winery in Thurmont, Maryland.
When you wake before dawn, clients drive almost 3 hours, and throw in a 2 mile bike ride to location...expect something magical. Kasey & Mike's engagement shoot was full of adventure, laughter and fun. I can hardly wait for their wedding next year!!!
How lovely it was the day Marie & Tom celebrated their union with family and friends from all over the world!....

When Kimberly came to me with this idea of announcing their upcoming parenthood I was all in, how adorable is this shoot!?
Playing with Steph on this fine Spring day, more coming soon:
I partnered with @shootershane Saturday to host #GoGreenYorkInstameet - a meeting of people who are on instagram to walk around, inspire each other and build connections all while celebrating "Earth Day Weekend" for Downtown York Pa. Thanks to everyone who came out to join us and stay tuned for the next one if you couldn't make it Saturday.
Here's a tiny glimpse into what I saw this fine day that inspired me:
2016 is off to a wonderful start!! Can't wait to share more from this unique wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster... until then.. a peek :)
Sometimes not having a plan is the best plan of them all! Josephine and I met up with the goal of bringing her Nomadic Mongolian vision to life. What we came up with turned out to be one of my favorite shoots of all time…
You know it's going to be good when you're capturing another creative and friend, his beautiful wife, and their son that's making his arrival soon! To make it extra special the sky dropped a few flakes at the end of our session. I've had the pleasure of working with Matt on many weddings and he's the amazing talent that captured our wedding video! Check out his talents here:
Congratulations to Zachary & Kelley! It's awesome seeing all of their hard work from their dream wedding published in Susquehanna Style / Style Weddings Magazine!!! Check out the online feature and their amazing vendors here: http://www.susquehannastyle.com/January-2016/Just-Married-Zachary-Kelley/

“We travel because we need to,
because distance and difference
are the secret tonic to creativity.
When we get home, home is still the same.
But something in our mind has changed,
and that changes everything.” ~John Leher
I document lives for a living. I LOVE IT. Every time I get to photograph the love you share with that special someone on your wedding day, the giggles of your family, or the sweet yawn of a your newborn, my heart skips a beat. I get to live life with so many people and be there for the moments in life that are most precious. It always fills me with great joy.
This year, it is time for me to document my life. My husband, Kermit, and I work hard. We love what we do and love our lives, but we have the opportunity to do something amazing. We are going on an adventure, OUR big adventure. Kermit and I are headed to Northern California for a year.
While based in California for a year, I will be back in York, PA once a month throughout the summer: shooting weddings and booking your family sessions. Each of these visits home will be posted well in advance so you can book your session.
We will be heading West this Spring and couldn’t be more excited. I care deeply for each of you, my clients, who have instilled in me love, friendship and a sense of family I could have never imagined. This adventure would not be possible without you.
For anyone reading this, no matter what your dreams of adventure are, they are possible. Work hard. Take a leap of faith. Know that risk is worth it.
All my love,
PS - If you are planning an adventure, tell me about it! I want to hear about your lives. If you have explored in California, give Kermit and me your recommendations and experiences. We want to hear about it!
