Back to You : An Open Heart Session - Lehigh Valley & Poconos, PA Couples Photographer

 

I've been on a campaign lately to show you all how much my heart longs for Open Heart Sessions.

I know it probably looks very overwhelming, but I can promise you...it couldn't be easier.

Because the chemistry you see? It's real. The passion you feel? It's there. It's just a matter of prompting you to be there, in that moment. Two hearts, one camera.

Every session I do is inspired by a little something....this one by the new song by Selena Gomez, Back to You. I love the way in which the song describes how one's heart always belongs to that one person, no matter how much you try and fight it. Sometimes the heart wants what it wants...another thing Selena Gomez knows a bit about ;)

Reading the lyrics really spoke to me....

 

Took you like a shot
Thought that I could chase you with a cold evening
Let a couple years water down how I'm feeling about you

And every time we talk
Every single word builds up to this moment
And I gotta convince myself I don't want it
Even though I do 

You could break my heart in two
But when it heals, it beats for you
I know it's forward, but it's true

I wanna hold you when I'm not supposed to
When I'm lying close to someone else
You're stuck in my head and I can't get you out of it
If I could do it all again
I know I'd go back to you

Let the music play as you view this beautiful Open Heart Session with an adventurous couple who absolutely blew me away with their own kind and open hearts. It's not every day you can meet someone last minute at a park and have them expose their hearts to you so honestly. Theeee best <3

Eaton Wedding : Dallas, PA Wedding Photographer

If you could picture the most perfect day to have your wedding....warm, but not too hot, sunny, but plenty of cool shade for photos, and absolutely no hiccups the entire day...that would be Abby & Bruce's June wedding.  There was not a moment where we were stressed for time, running around trying to beat the clock. Every single moment was simple, easy, and stress free.

Both the bride and groom were surrounded by their absolute favorite people, smiling ear to ear the entire day. Family came from far and wide to celebrate their union, and I love that they had a close family friend officiate their ceremony. The gorgeous flowers and wooded scenery gave such a whimsical vibe during their ceremony, creating the magic we all dream of as we exchange vows with our one true love <3

And I love the way Abby and Bruce love each other. They have such an ease, a simple joy...you can see the way Abby's nose crinkles when she laugh's, and the way Bruce has a coy, secret smile just for her. They are the epitome of happiness these two, and I'm so honored I was there to celebrate their wedding day.

Let that special song play as you scroll on through!

Cozze Wedding : Lehigh Valley, PA Wedding Photographer

I can tell you that the entire week before the Cozze's got hitched, up until the morning of, it was calling for 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms. I admit, I was getting a little nervous, knowing Chantelle & Frank planned to exchange their vows outdoors on Cozze family property. 

In calling Chantelle a few days before, I reminded her we'd need to prepare for anything. And you know what? She had no worries whatsoever. She just wanted it to be about her and Frank, nothing else mattered. 

And you know what else? Aside from some clouds and some sprinkles here and there, the sun shined brilliantly all.day.long.

Both Chantelle & Frank are easy going, genuinely HAPPY people. Huge hearts, even bigger smiles. Every single decoration was handmade by the two of them with love, from the arbor to the signage. Personal touches were spread throughout every nook and cranny. Oh and their dogs? I don't know that you could find a more loyal pair. They followed their mom and dad all day long, watching over them or sitting near them during all the important aspects of their day.

Their families surrounded them with joy and laughter, and it was truly a pleasure to witness. I don't know that we've ever had such an easy, care free day. And I'm so happy to share some highlights from their wedding day with you <3
