Can I tell you how much we LOVE having pups along to photography sessions?! Virginia and Tim chose the most perfect spring day for their downtown Lancaster engagement session and brought their fur-kiddos, Milton and Hugs, along. Don’t these two look incredibly snuggly?! Check out more images from Virginia & Tim’s Engagement session here 🙂
Alexis was one of our lucky bridal show giveaway winners from the Weddings In Style show held last year. When she had contacted us about her ideas for their engagement session we had no doubt we were going to create some fantastic images off of her plans and inspiration! Alexis and Jared chose to not only celebrate their engagement but their upcoming birthday celebration for their gorgeous Australian Shepherd, Oakley. Even though we didn’t know much about these two at the beginning of their session, by the end we felt like we had known them for months! Congratulations again on your engagement and we wish you the very best on your June 2015 wedding!
With many of our couples residing outside of the central PA area, we rely on Skype or Facetime to get to know one another. What’s great about these sessions is we usually get to meet our couple’s four legged friends too. Eliza and Chris have two adorable pups, Peanut and Chewie, who were not shy about their video conference skills. These two teachers share not only a love for their pups, but for the outdoors, family, and each other.
We met up at a local (and gorgeous) park near their home in Wilmington, DE for some late fall fun, including a few props to dress up the images a bit! One of my favorites was a sign Eliza made featuring the pups saying “Our Humans are Getting Married!”. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect session with such amazing people!
One of my favorite questions from clients is if they’re able to bring their beloved pup along to the engagement session. Absolutely! Your pups are usually an extension of yourselves and your family so why not incorporate him/her into your images!?
We met up with Michelle and Travis at Nissley Vineyard with pup Jerome, a serious love bug, in tow. One of my favorite shots from the day was a tree carved out ‘A+T’ which of course we edited to match our couple’s initials. Fingers crossed we have the same gorgeous weather for their 2014 wedding!
We’re often asked by potential clients if we travel for sessions.. simply YES! We love to travel regardless of from Harrisburg to Lancaster, DC or out of state. Many of our couples actually live outside of the central PA area which is awesome hearing about their experiences that have taken some out of the state or reasons they’re returning for his/her wedding day.
Rachel contacted us about her laid back yet serenely planned wedding in 2014 to her handsome husband to be, Brady. Both currently residing in Washington, D.C., it was important to include their fur kid, 10 year old Cocker Spaniel Autumn, who was one of the sweetest pups we’ve ever photographed. The location chosen was Meridian Park, which is stunning as far as city parks go with large ponds, fountains and structures. We couldn’t have asked for a better day or a better couple to share it with. Congratulations Rachel and Brady and see you guys next year!

It is always fun to explore and find new places to have photo sessions at. It is even better to find a place that is 1) gorgeous, 2) unique and 3) owned by a fantastic couple! That pretty much sums up the Inn at Westwynd Farm in Hummelstown. When Dana mentioned she would like to have her engagement session at a “rural” location, this B+B came to mind. Luckily the one owner, Carolyn, welcomed us with enthusiasm.
Whitney and I met up with Dana and Bob and their adorable little pup, Cassie, on a perfect spring day. Using the B+B and attached working horse farm as a backdrop, we captured some amazing images. Dana and Bob are so laid back and were up for anything we threw at them (even walking through some questionable horse fields in flip flops!). They genuinely have fun with each other and I can’t wait to see what is in store for their wedding day!!
