Coby and Gretchen are super athletic and outdoorsy folks, and that's how they met! Since I knew that these two loved hiking and visiting waterfalls, I suggested that we hike to one of our local waterfalls for their engagement session. We met up on a sunny Saturday and started our session hanging out (literally) by the creek that feeds the falls in an Eno hammock. We finally reached the falls and took a moment to breathe it all in.Read More
- Welcome to the blog! -
Spring is finally here, which means the grass is turning green, the trees are budding, birds are chirping, and of course, engagement sessions! I absolutely love shooting engagement, anniversary, and couple's sessions with my adventurous couples. It's so fun to explore, hang out, get to know each other and enjoy nature without the added pressure of a timeline on a wedding day!
Since these sessions aren't appointments that we regularly schedule, I know it can sometimes feel awkward to be in front of the lens (I still am). That's what I'm here for- to guide you and help make your session a comfortable and fun experience for both you and your fiancé/significant other! One of the best ways to feel more comfortable at the session is to plan out what you'll be wearing.
Of course, most of the photos you see below are from engagement sessions, but I wanted to note that it translates to anniversary or couple's sessions as well! Any portrait session where there are two of you to coordinate/prepare!Read More
Andrew and I's proposal-aversary is on the 26th, so I thought it would be fun to share about our own adventurous proposal! Andrew proposed to me at one of my favorite places (ever) on the Appalachian Trail- Annapolis Rocks. The outcropping overlooking Boonsboro has a special place in my heart for a lot of reasons- it was the perfect place to propose. This is our story!Read More
I met up with Laken and Wayne at Cowan's Gap State Park in Fort Loudon, Pennsylvania for their maternity session. It was a perfect fit for this mountain mama-to-be and avid outdoors loving couple! Wayne loves to fish and they both love to hunt, so I knew the lake and woodsy feel would be a perfect way to celebrate and welcome their little girl! We spent the evening walking around the lake, laughing at Wayne's humor, and catching up on life. It was a perfect summer evening in the mountains of PA!Read More
Two years ago, I was invited on my first backpacking trip with my friend Elizabeth and her group of friends who visit Panthertown Valley annually. We had an amazing weekend full of campfires, "faint foothpath" finding, waterfall chasing, and of course, running from yellowjackets (you can read about that trip on the blog here). When a date had been set for the annual Panthertown trip for 2016, I cleared my schedule and began preparing for another exciting weekend in the backcountry!Read More
Sarah has been my best friend for half of my life. I first met Sarah in middle school when she moved to Maryland from New Jersey, and we've been partners-in-crime ever since! Eric contacted me in February to help plan a surprise proposal for Sarah in Nashville, TN at Percy Warner Park. I'm so glad that I was able to be a part of the big surprise!Read More
