We really could not have had a more beautiful day for Logan & Chantal’s wedding day yesterday! I am so excited to re-live this day… from the amazing flowers by Hometown Floral to the beautiful venue that is Disalvo’s, it was truly such a perfect day. Here are some favorites I couldn’t wait to share! Congratulations again you two!
Congratulations to this amazing couple! We could not have gotten more lucky with how beautiful the weather turned out for their special day. These two are truly adorable and the happiness they exude is just inspirational. I know that sounds like I’m embellishing, but it’s totally true. This is why I love what I do, the way these two look at each other and I get to capture it for them, it’s just awesome! I cannot wait to share more from this day! I’m already having so much fun re-living it! Thank you for choosing me to photograph your big day Alanna & Geoff! You’re the best! Shout out to Alisha Mack (A Mack Photography) for being a rock star and helping out all day and capturing so many amazing photos right beside me. :)
Thank goodness, it’s finally here! Sunshine and flowers! It finally feels like we can all come out of our cold weather daze and enjoy the beautiful weather… which also means beautiful portraits & wedding season. I always get so excited this time of year. I mean check out this beautiful senior I photographed a couple weeks ago!? The flowers were perfect and I’m always glad when I get someone who is willing to be immersed in flowers… and her outfit and the light was perfect too.
Warm weather also brings wedding season! Here is a shot from the first of the season, so incredibly perfect. A great couple, beautiful setting, amazing veil & super helpful photo team, this is what you get! So grateful for couples willing to let us get a little creative and spend a little more time on their wedding day. It’s so worth gorgeous shots like these.
Can’t wait for more portraits & weddings throughout the next few months. If you are interested in a family, senior or any other portrait, please just send me a message or give me a call! Let’s get outside and take advantage of the beautiful PA weather!
Wow what a whirlwind the last month has been welcoming our baby boy. I’m so glad I have the opportunity to stay home and spend this precious time with him and my husband. Although it’s been crazy, he is the most awesome little human & I am so excited to be his mom.
They say time flies and that statement is more true than it has ever been having a child of our own. The days are filled with feeding, naps, diaper changes and cuddles. I am so appreciative that I am able to be home and take in all that is being a new mom. Thank you to all of my clients for being so understanding during this time.
We were so lucky to have our amazing friend Sarah Mumper photograph our new little family at our home. More than ever, I realize how stressful going into a newborn session can be! How long until he cries, will he be happy for any of them, can we get at least one with the dog, when will I be able to feed him and how long will he eat for, do I have time to shower, do my hair and makeup and have some kind of plan for outfits for the rest of the family?! So crazy… I have a whole new appreciation and sensitivity for these types of sessions and the moms who make them happen! Baby did wonderfully and we even captured some breastfeeding shots while we took care of that part, can’t wait to look back and remember how challenging and tiny he was when we were both figuring that part out.
As you can see, Sarah captured so many beautiful moments and we are so grateful to her for spending all that time with us. After all was said and done, there were a few I really wanted that we didn’t get because we already spent three hours with Sarah! I figured, I can finally get my camera out and grab some, what a fun and exciting time to be able to capture my own little babe. Well, it didn’t turn out quite as easy as I had thought… I woke him up from a nap thinking he would be sleepy and I would be able to get a few shots quickly. He was screaming, I was upset because I tried to soothe him with feeding him, but he wasn't having it, trying to grab my camera and get a few shots before he was really screaming, boob out (leaking), baby was spitting up, pooping etc… so frustrating! Phew! I finally got the few shots I wanted after about an hour and thought to myself, this probably isn’t going to get any easier… haha which answers my question while I was pregnant about how many photos I’m really going to have of my own kid. I would hope it gets easier, but I’ll keep you posted!
Lesson to be shared through all of this, HIRE A PROFESSIONAL! Even a photographer should get to enjoy and be treated to some beautiful photos of his/her own family. It’s so much easier and it was such a beautiful experience instead of trying to do it myself!
Thank you Sarah for making this so easy and lovely. I am so glad to have these memories! Also, a little shout out to all Moms out there, you rock! Everyone tells you it’s hard, but you really have no idea until you do it yourself. It’s so worth it and we are so in love, but man… props to all of you! If you are reading this as a Mom, know you’re not alone and you’re doing a fantastic job!
I also have to say thanks to my wonderful husband Logan, who has been so incredibly helpful throughout this whole experience of bringing a new life into the world. More in love than I’ve ever been seeing you with our son.
This weekend could be the last I’m in the studio before baby arrives, so make sure to grab a spot! I will be back in late spring/early summer but if you want something before then, this is the time!
Also- if you or someone you know needs photos or would love to get something printed or made for your home, grab a gift certificate!
We are so excited to meet our little one & it’s not going to be long now! We are so glad to have these beautiful memories and Sarah Mumper Photography did an amazing job capturing them for us! It’s always an interesting experience being on the other side of the camera, but we had so much fun! (Of course it helps to have your very good friend capture them… no matter how cold it is!) Thank you Sarah for braving the cold with us and making these amazing moments for us. It was so hard to choose my favorites to share and going to be even more difficult to choose which to display in our home. We will really enjoy sharing them with our kiddo someday. Love this man and we cannot wait to meet our little babe soon!
As far as being behind the camera, it’s been hard for me to decide when to take some time off so I’m kind of winging it! I will certainly be taking the first few weeks off after baby is born to spend time as our new little family, but will still be available, although responses will be delayed. I appreciate all of my clients understanding during this time. Timing has worked out well though because it’s not a very nice time of year for photos, so I don’t expect many of you to need me as much as you might as the year goes on. I will most likely ease back into my normal shooting schedule in late spring, just in time for the beautiful weather to come back. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in scheduling and I will get back to you as soon as possible. After photographing so many memories for all of you, I am so excited to experience the amazing moments of becoming a Mom & capturing them for our family too. Thank you for visiting! I will soon be updating with the new member of our family! <3
It’s time to book your wedding photographer! :)
It’s time to confirm your date for the 2019 & 2020 wedding season! I’m so excited for another beautiful season. If you are looking for a photographer or know someone who is, please reach out! I’d be happy to meet with you in person and chat more about your day. It’s so much fun for me to talk about and get excited with each bride and groom about their big day. Especially on days like today (-1 degrees with a feels like temperature of -15) I can’t wait for warmer wedding days… much like this beautiful one from last year. It’s the perfect time to cuddle up on the couch and start planning. I can’t wait to see all of you beautiful couples!
Happy 2019 Everyone! I’ve been meaning to share this very exciting piece with all of you. This little guy is a very good friend’s son and he won the UPMC photo contest for cutest baby! I get to see his adorable little face on our local billboards! It makes me so proud to have captured his photos since he was born and he makes the perfect little spokesperson for delivering joy.
I am also getting the opportunity to experience the wonderful care that the UPMC OB department provides in Williamsport. I’m so glad we have such a great group of people in our area. I can’t wait to welcome our little one into the world with all of the wonderful UPMC staff. A huge shout out to UPMC for making such a beautiful piece. Of course also to the family that allowed me to capture these special moments for them! So much Love!
I hope you all are staying warm and had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was happy to be home and spend time with my family and even make some memories for some other families. You know what I hear more than anything else as a photographer? “We haven’t had a family photo for years”. It’s easy to let time fly by with all of our busy schedules and out of town family members. If you are someone who is guilty of not having a family photo taken in awhile, please schedule something today! You just never know how things could change and you don’t want to miss out on an important memory with family. Not to mention, the kiddos only stay little for so long!
I’m going to be announcing extended family specials for over the holiday season so you can take advantage of when family is home! Be sure to follow my social media to see available dates. If this special doesn’t work out for you, grab a gift certificate for a family session next year! It really makes an amazing gift and everyone involved is happy to have the memories. You can grab a gift certificate here:
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
Hello Everyone! I’m excited to announce a new gallery I’ve added to my website, my fine art nature photos! Since I’ve grown up in such a beautiful place, where I now live again, I have so many nature shots I’ve taken over time and I finally got a lot together to share with all of you. I plan to share more as I shoot more, but it’s a good start! All are available for purchase to add some local or not so local beauty to your home. Since it’s that time of year, this could make a great gift too! Find the new gallery under my main menu - gallery - fine art nature.
Thanks for visiting! I’m excited to share this with all of you as nature is what really made me fall in love with photography in the first place. Have a great day! :)
A huge Congratulations to these two! What a fun day and you wouldn’t even know it was one of the wettest fall days this year. I always tell bride and grooms that we can get some really unique shots when it’s raining and these two were totally up for making them happen! We also were very lucky to have a gorgeous location where the ladies got ready (Rikki Ferrar’s beautiful make up studio) all the way to the lovely venue for their ceremony & reception (Farrington Place). Here are many favorites since it was so hard to choose… Cannot wait to share more from this awesome day!
Such cute kimono robes from Arrow & Thread!
Rikki’s beautiful studio! http://www.rikkifeerrar.com/studio-experience
Maurie & Cody’s wedding day was such a beautiful fall day! We weren’t sure how it was going to turn out weather-wise and we got really lucky! We had plenty of time to photograph the bride & groom and their family all before it rained later in the afternoon. I’m so glad because they had such a gorgeous venue! Can’t wait to share more from this amazing day. Congratulations you two!
Katy & Manny had such an amazing fall wedding in Harrisburg! Loved getting to shoot somewhere different and we had such a beautiful day! Cannot wait to share more from their day. Congratulations you two!
I really love LOVE and it makes me so excited to be starting another beautiful engagement season. If you are engaged or know someone who is, I am currently booking 2019-2020 weddings!

It’s a great time of year to get your photos done to use for holiday gifts, cards or just enjoy the weather while making memories! Contact me today!

Congratulations to these two! What an absolutely perfect day this turned out to be. Just goes to show you that the weather forecast can always change and I am so thankful it did on this day...We got to enjoy the beautiful back drop where these two celebrated their special day. These two were all about making creative shots happen which is so much fun for me as their photographer. I love meeting couples like these who make me feel like we've been friends for years, it just makes the whole day even more special. I'm so happy to make memories like these! So many more to come, I can't wait to share more!
