Filipe + Nataly / Engaged

I'm excited to share these with you. I love it when old friends, like Filipe, step back into your life and include me in their most special moments. It's times like these that I know that I've stepped into the right profession. If you like what you see --- hit the share button at the end of this post! 

Ali / Senior Portraits

This is actually one of my very first senior portrait sessions. I was pretty excited to do this shoot because Ali loves acting, and I just knew this was just going to be fun and inspiring.  She was really inspired by Rachel Aumiller's singer-songwriter shoot I did back in December 2012 --- so we set off and found some train tracks and captured her love of playing guitar in some gorgeous evening lighting. 

Melissa + Clair / Engaged

First of all I'd like to say, when I was editing these photos I listened to Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007: I. Prelude on repeat for several days. Melissa is one of my best friends from high school, we played in orchestra together. Now she is a professional cellist -- which makes Melissa and Clair's story pretty sweet, because Clair is also a professional musician. They knew each other back in their college days, but didn't really start dating until they went on a Broadway tour of South Pacific. I'm so excited to share these photographs with you because everything in this photo shoot was carefully thought out and I love that they wanted to take photos with their instruments at Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown, PA. We did their outdoor photos at the Allentown Rose Garden where Clair proposed! I am really looking forward to shooting your wedding in June Melissa and Clair! 

David Ross

David Ross is a musician based in Nashville, TN -- and one of my old high school friends. You must check out his YouTube page and watch all of his music videos, they are fantastic. Maybe one day we'll work on a video together and I'll post it on my blog!
