Wedding at Worsell Manor

When we shot BJ and Britney’s engagement session in the (literal) freezing cold of January, it was a little hard to imagine what it would feel like for their summer wedding at Worsell Manor. August 27th finally came, and it was beautiful. We started the day by getting Britney ready. One of the coolest details […]

Ceremony Prep Photography

A Sample from Jenna & Matt’s Day at Whist Weddings Ceremony prep is one of the most important parts of the wedding day. There’s so much anticipation and that tends to make people both excited and nervous during that time. I love capturing those emotions! In planning for wedding days, I’m often asked how much […]

Engagement Session – Brandywine Park

This time of year is so much fun for an engagement session in Delaware. Little green leaves are starting to come out on the trees. The cherry blossoms are everywhere. My favorite blossoming tree is the Kwanzan Cherry. They were actually the inspiration for my logo! A couple of weeks ago we had some really […]

Why an Engagement Session is Important

I hear it often – “mmm we don’t really think we need an engagement session.” It’s an area where I often make a case for why something is more important than couples realize.
