This young woman is, I believe, a 4th generation Lehigh Grad! Her proud parents joined us for a reminiscent stroll around the grounds, stopping at all the best spots for her portraits. I love it when parents/family are involved because you can just feel the pride and joy about this momentous occasion, and one of the best parts about my job is getting to join folks for the happiest moments in their lives. Big congrats for carrying on this legacy!
For my last and final Lehigh graduation session, this gorgeous family ran all around campus with me under the impending threat of storm! This session and the session prior featured women who were carrying on the legacy from their fathers of graduating from Lehigh U, which was really cool, and make each location even more special and memorable. I loved this session, and I really truly loved every hour that I was able to spend on this campus this spring, even when we were sweating. I want to wish everyone a happy graduation day today and a fabulous journey ahead!
Un-creative blog post titles aside (sorry!), I’m loving the grad sessions this year. A few years into this and I feel like these flow so well. Yesterday’s solo session was no exception! Plus I have to brag about my client(s) because we really did have to contend with two extra factors: extreme heat and a VERY crowded campus, and they were total troopers. There was a prom, and at least two other events on the grounds that we had to shoot around, but we did it and had fun as always.
Super glad the weather held out for my second lovely group of grads yesterday, especially because they had already resheduled due to rain! Thankfully it was not an issue and we were able to do all the fun stuff including popping champagne under the classic “Lehigh 2022” as is tradition. Lots of fun, lots of beautiful portraits.
Graduation season is in full swing now, and yesterday we started with this beautiful group of ladies. The weather was flawless and we hit all the good spots and had fun walking and talking.
I may have gotten the actual words wrong, but the quote in my title comes from groom Brian’s welcome speech at Laura and Brian’s gorgeous wedding celebration yesterday. The gist was that when we think about the best memories of our lives, it’s all about who we were with; who shared those moments with us, above anything else. It is so true, how complete we are when we are surrounded by our favorite souls.
Brian and Laura joined their families together at Gather Event Center in Emmaus. It insisted on sprinkling that afternoon, but held off on pouring long enough for the “I do’s” We took some lovely photos in the gardens and walkways before the ceremony, where the couple’s combined 7 children stood up to join their parents together, it was a wonderful moment. Later, cocktails and converstion, followed by the main party, set to the tunes of the very talented 10-piece band!
I’m honored to have been a part of Brian and Laura’s beautiful day, and I wish them so much happiness and continued memories with their favorite people.
Yesterday afternoon was a dream for weather! We had a small group of grads and although we had to dodge a few frisbees and broken heels, we got some great snaps around campus. The firsts of many groups this spring!
Ioana and George met as dancers, and now they are dancing off into the sunset together as a newly married couple! These sweet and photogenic lovebirds contacted me shortly before their nupitals at Narareth’s Borough Council Chambers (such a pretty old building!) and I jumped at the chance to kick-start my wedding season! Ioana and George were both inspired and inspiring, and their love story lit up the town center. We had only a few short minutes with each other but we made them count, and I think the essence of their romance comes through in these photos. Spring is for lovers!
Sunday was without a doubt THE COLDEST graduation session (or session in general) that I’ve ever shot, and let me say, the gorgeous ladies graduating from Metro Beauty academy did not let it stop them from hitting all their poses. I couldn’t feel by hands and I was in a puffer coat, so as I’m writing this I hope that no-one got hypothermia! Join me in congratulating these professionals on their graduation, and I thank them for making the day a little warmer with their enthusiasm and champagne!
This weekend was the joyful start of graduation season in my world, with this adorable and proud family! The fantastic foursome gathered at Lehigh’s budding campus to celebrate Dad’s momentous achievement, all in their impeccable blues and the subject of honor in his cap and gown. Mom wore shoes from their wedding, which was also shot at Lehigh! That isn’t all they borrowed from their nuptials, we recreated some of their wedding photos as well, which was so much fun. Congratulations on finishing that degree it was so thrilling to involve the whole family, surely the achievement modeled here will be a part of the little ones’ memories and motivations in the future!
