Ahhh Graduation! Better yet… Shepherd University Graduation! I can remember it like it was yesterday… the sea of blue gowns, everyone dolled up (even the ones who only rocked yoga pants and sweatshirts to class!), the flurry of parents excitedly snapping photos, the selfies with friends, the fact that you may not wear a hat […]

“Can I have the RAW images of my wedding day?” This is a question that has been tossed around a lot recently in the wedding photography world, most likely due to a list of questions given by The Knot or Wedding Wire or a list on Pinterest. Many brides are planning their first wedding and […]

So yesterday I opened my email and to my sheer surprise I had been awarded the WeddingWire Couple’s Choice Award for 2019! I won’t lie, I started giggling to myself and saying (in a very high pitched tone) “What?! So Awesome!!!! Holy Cow!!!” I felt so blessed and loved by my previous and current clients! […]
