Happy spring friends! As I sit here writing this blog post, it is snowing outside, making it hard to believe it actually is spring. But every year around this time, I always feel a sense of accomplishment. Whew, we made it through another Upstate NY winter! As I prepare for the 2023 photography/wedding season, I […]

Happy February friends! So it’s been a hot minute since I posted! Between lots of admin work and sickness, it’s been a slower season. But honestly, it’s been nice to have a few months that have felt more chill! 2022 was full of so many blessings, but it was also VERY busy! Long walks in […]

It was a crisp fall day. The kind of day where you walk and the leaves perfectly crunch underneath your feet. The kind of day where you take a deep breath in and it smells just like fall. The kind of day where it feels like fall, but you only need a light jacket to […]

Happy December friends! Since it is officially cold here in Upstate, I thought I would share a session from a few weeks ago that was absolutely FRIGID! We have been so blessed this fall into winter with milder weather than normal. But on this particular Monday morning, where I met up with Hannah and Ezra […]

It was the year 2011. I was fifteen years old. As a fifteen year old, what did I aspire to spend my summers doing? Work at a summer camp, of course! Growing up in Allentown, PA, we were not far from Zionsville, PA where Victory Valley Camp is located. I had gone there a few […]

But thankfully, once I arrived, the rain went away, providing us […]

There are not many times in life where I am at a loss for words..but today as I sit down to write this blog post, I do not even know what to say… Just a few months ago, after doing family photos for dear friends, I received a message from Heather. Heather and her fianc√© […]

My hands trembled. Tears swelled up in my eyes. And my throat vibrated as I sang… Typically, these are not typical things I experience throughout the course of a wedding ceremony. Usually I am focused on my back pain from poor posture throughout the day, or I am focused on how heavy my 70-200 mm […]

It was hot, sunny, and humid. The perfect day for a May wedding. This past year I have had the wonderful privilege of being an associate photographer for Hannah Balta! Hannah and I met a few years ago after I moved to NY. Hannah is an amazingly-talented photographer who recently got married and moved to […]

The air was cool. The wind was blowing. It was time for the first look. Angela hiked up her 7-layer wedding dress, and made her way towards her dad. This was a moment I wish I could have frozen in time. Ed sighed and took a long deep breath in. He was ready to see […]
