Ioana & George: The Romanian Ceremony

My favorite Romanian dancers are back to grace our screens! I first met Ioana and George at their elopement in Nazareth, PA, where it was just the three of us capturing the moment for a short hour. This time the happy couple came together in a gorgeous Romanian church in New Jersey surrounded by family and friends, arrayed in their stunning traditional clothes. I felt so honored once again to be photographing these memories for them. After the ceremony we frolicked through the nearby fields for portraits to show off those amazing outfits, and their effortless love. My heartfelt congratulations again Ioana and George, I hope you never stop celebrating!

Lehigh ’22 Part VI

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!

Lehigh ’22 Part V

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!

Running Away with the Newest Reeves

The title of this post is not about me running away WITH my new tiny subject here, (I totally would, look at her!) but rather the four of us scampering off the grounds of the Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park when they sent someone to shoo us away from a wedding. Turns out, we did just fine in the surrounding fields and walkways. LOOK AT THESE CHEEKS. I get to see these beautiful folks year after year. First there was engagement, then there was marriage, then there was maternity, and now the princess is here! She’s super loved, already making amazing eye contact with the camera, and hamming it up. There were no tears… (only dinosaur noises, as one does) I count myself so lucky to have spent a perfect October afternoon with one of my favorite families.

Sublime Grace on Campus

So my youth has officially become vintage throwback material, and I am an OId, but how can I complain when yesterday’s client made it all so cool again? (Peep the tank in outfit #2) We had a great senior photo session on – you guessed it – Lehigh University campus yesterday, and although I’ve spent a lot of time there this summer and fall, I did discover a sculpture I hadn’t seen before and a couple other angles I hadn’t gotten to, and it was super fun. This multi-talented beauty wowed with her style and grace (en pointe no less!) and I am excited for her journey! I love seeing what this generation is bringing to the table, so many good things co

Running in Circles and Catching Crickets

For their third family photo session with me, this awesome family returned to the scene of last year’s shoot at Trexler park in Allentown. It has been a few minutes since I did a family session and it’s just crazy how the light has already changed so much since the height of summer. The foliage is transitioning into warmer colors, and with it my editing. It’s a big park, which is good for those kid bursts of energy, but can also turn into “I don’t want to walk anymore” around the end of the hour. The trick is to capture all the cuteness in between! We did some fish spotting and bug hunting. We ran in circles and had a jumping contest, we may or may not have all left sweaty. It’s been fun to watch these boys get bigger every year. (Oh, and if you are a cookie connoisseur who loves a theme, I have just the professional for your next party favors!)

Blue Jeans and Glam with Alpha Gam

Sunday was a gorgeous day to round up what seemed like hundreds of lovely Alpha Gamma Delta ladies at Lehigh and get some group portraits done! They were very efficient and organized, and we had fun walking and posing with different groups as the last bit of sun sparkled through the architecture. I look forward to these group sessions every time I do them, they’re always a blast, and who doesn’t want to spend their afternoon on the gorgeous Lehigh campus?
