Melissa & Robert, thank you for sharing your story with me. A modern day-met online romantic kind of story. I loved hearing you both giggle as you told me the story of your first date. Your laughter was contagious and I know that it is to anyone close by. You two are perfect for one another and fit perfectly into each other’s arms. Melissa has classic style to match her classic beauty. Check out those beautiful locks and baby blue eyes. So glad that she found her Prince charming in a new classic type of way. We cannot wait to share in your big day! Enjoy my favorites from our time spent together!
Let’s take it back to around 2012 when I first met Lee and Jenna. They were newly engaged and contacted me for their engagement session. I meet them at Codorus park and fall in love with them. We laughed together and created our first beautiful session together. We just “clicked” as I would say in the best way a client and photographer can click. I photographed their beautiful wedding and I’ll always always remember their sweet and kind families. A couple of years after their wedding I got the best email ever. That they were expecting their first baby boy; Bennett. Yup, that maternity session was a dream come true as well. Followed by a couple of family sessions with Bennett, now we are here! Photographing the anticipation of baby girl Butz! Jenna was glowing as usual. Lee made her laugh and feel loved as usual. And Bennett made me so proud…such a little camera ham! I adore him. I adore all three (soon to be 4) of you. I am deeply thankful that you allow me play a small role in some of your biggest family memories. I truly cannot wait to meet your newest addition. I know she’s going to be beautiful like her momma. Let’s meet back at Codorus where it all began. I’ll be over here praying for you all!
I met Chris and Hannah on a chilly October day in Philadelphia. I told them from the very beginning of their session to keep each other warm. We warmed up quick together as we walked around finding the best lighting and spots for pictures. We laughed and found some beautiful homes and scenery to admire. They certainly loved being around each other so much and fit so perfectly in one another’s arms. These two met in catholic high school and have the sweetest love story. They attended college together and now they’ll be tying the knot next year!
Hannah & Chris, thank you for choosing me to document your love. I feel so lucky to have met you two.
I packed my bags and trekked a few hours north for this Pennsylvania Grand Canyon engagement session. It was a beautiful Fall day, the drive was scenic and peaceful. When I arrived I learned that this location was one Dustyn and Morgan’s first little getaways together and it held lots of fond memories for the two of them. I just loved hearing all about why this mountain region was so dear to them. Once I started photographing the love birds I quickly realized that Dustyn makes Morgan smile like no other. She laughed every time he squeezed and kissed her. Their love was a true joy to photograph. Dusytin is such a gentleman and Morgan is the most sweet soul. I feel like their picture perfect outfits and Morgan’s gorgeous smile could be in a catalog of some sort. My heart leaped as I photographed the Fall foliage, vast landscapes in the background and their eager-ness to do whatever it takes to get the best shot! What a fun day!
To the future Mr. & Mrs. Ritchey, I hope this session added another great day of memories to a special location. Years from now, I hope you remember this day and smile over the hundreds of kisses I made you two give one another. What a great chapter in your story. See you on your wedding day next year!
