Lauryn + Ian | Backyard Wedding in New Germany State Park

Lauryn + Ian are two of the sweetest people I've ever met. They tied the knot this past weekend at Lauryn's childhood home tucked in the woods of New Germany State Park. A perfect backdrop - I know! Lauryn + Ian grew up together and their families have been friends for years. Not until a few years back did they realize the other was there all along. Such a sweet story that matched their beautiful personalities. 

The forecast was unfortunately 100% rain all day long. Their property was stunning (you'll see) and I was praying we'd get a break in the weather to capture some portraits. It rained their entire ceremony but I loved their rain plan - umbrellas. The day was filled with such joy that the rain didn't even matter. 

Thank you for allowing me and Jonathan to photograph your special day, guys! We are so grateful. Scroll for their cuteness! 


Mickayla + Griffin | Sky Meadows State Park Elopement

This blog post is an exciting one. This past weekend my dear friend Sarah, the babe who runs Sarah Brookhart Photography, and myself hosted our very first workshop, The Meraki Workshop. Meraki means putting your entire heart and soul into something which is exactly how Sarah and I both run our businesses. It was truly an honor and privilege to work alongside her teaching six awesome women some tricks of the trade. We rented a sweet Airbnb just a block from Union Market (yummy food galore) and lucked out with some of the best weather we've had in months. While majority of the weekend we covered important topics like branding, SEO + more, we also had two styled shoots up our sleeves. The first being Saturday evening's: a boho styled elopement at Sky Meadows State Park in Virginia and the second being Sunday morning's: a cozy in-home session in a beautiful Breather space. 

Mickayla + Griffin, our gorgeous couple for the evening, drove all the way from Pittsburgh (what, right? they're the sweetest!) and didn't at all mind having six cameras in their face. They were such troopers running around and getting in and out of poses for all these crazy photographers. Mickayla wore a beautiful flower crown made by the babes at Ash to Oak Floral Artistry and had a stunning bouquet to match. And the biggest thanks to Kristin Mastrangeo for putting her makeup goddess touch on Mickayla, naturally beautiful, but super stunning with the boho inspired look Kristin came up with! 

The rolling hills of Sky Meadows State Park made the perfect backdrop for this bohemian golden hour sunset. I'm so grateful to everyone who made this weekend possible, my partner in workshop crime Sarah and the ladies who attended. I can hardly wait to see everyone's photos from the weekend and can't wait to share in a future blog post Sunday's snuggly images. 

Now that I've written a book, scroll and enjoy!
