Tuesdays are for eyeing up the middle of the week, @chickfila runs for lunch, and reminiscing about this golden hour at this gorgeous Virginia wedding! 🌞 Guess what Northeast? Another winter storm arrives tomorrow! Which means another dose of the giddy feelings as the snow falls, then the annoyed feelings once it sticks around for days, tracks into your house, and makes venturing the to the mailbox an American Ninja Warrior level effort! ❄️ So tonight I’m loving on some summer photos including this stunning Charlottesville wedding! Some people just make golden hour absolutely breathtaking, and this EMP bride definitely fits that mold! Doesn’t Kristen look stunning!? ✨ I am so ready for summer, who’s with me!? What’s your favorite season, and why? I would love to learn more about you in the comments below! . . . . . #verulamfarm #charlottesville #virginiaweddingphotographer #goldenhourlight #goldenhour #farmwedding #njweddingphotographer #paweddingphotographer #lancasterpaweddingphotographer #lancasterphotographer #baltimoreweddingphotographer #richmondweddingphotographer #washingtondcweddingphotographer #philadelphiaweddingphotographer #mdweddingphotographer #vaweddingphotographer #bridalportrait #bridalportraits #justmarried #wdofficial #ruffledblog #smpweddings #marthaweddings #bridesmagazine #buzzfeedweddings #2020bride #2019bride #bride2019 #snowdays #herecomesthebride
For some, it’s just a dress. But to me these dresses mean SO much more! 💕 I’ll never forget when I first tried on the wedding dress I ended up picking for my wedding. I just knew that dress was “the one” immediately, just like I knew Matt was my one true soulmate from the minute we met! (Sappyyyy🥰) 👫 Even now, I’ll sneak in to my closet and try that bad girl back on, just to feel those memories and feelings wash over me once again! One day, I’ll show our kids the dress and let the sparkles in that dress reflect off their eyes like they did in mine back when I said “yes to the dress” - and I. Can’t. Wait! 🥰 ♦️Married friends, do you ever pull your dress back out? ♦️ Engaged friends, do you have grand plans for your dress after the big day? I can’t wait to see your answers in the comments below! . . . . . #ironstoneranch #lancasterpaphotographer #lancasterweddingphotographer #njweddingphotographer #philadelphiaweddingphotographer #baltimoreweddingphotographer #paweddingphotographer #pawedding #weddingdresses #weddingdressideas #wdofficial #barnwedding #farmhousewedding #farmhouse #weddingdetail #weddingdetails #detailshot #weddingdressinspiration #weddinginspirations #smpweddings #theknot #marthaweddings #stylemepretty #destinationweddings #buzzfeedweddings #ruffledblog
Back on the ‘Gram today (after a week off) thanks to a nasty flu bug that caught up with Liam and I at the same time! 😷 A week later, after multiple trips to the doctor, an overnight hospital stay, and plenty of medications, life is FINALLY starting to get back to normal! 🤒 This is a great reminder to take care of yourselves! I had been running full speed for weeks in an effort to get the small creative business education running on my website (Still in the works! Sign up for details at the link in my bio - Click education!), but all of it came to a screeching halt, with everything put on hold because I literally couldn’t get out of bed! 🤕 Things are better now and we’re slowly but surely getting back to normal. Special thanks to Matt for taking the best care of two very sick people! And special shout-out to my mom who took care of our dogs while we were at the hospital, and took it upon herself to sanitize our house with an army of Lysol products! Also thank you to everyone who reached out to see if everything was alright when they noticed I hadn’t posted in a while! I promise I will respond to all of your messages! ❤️ This flu is no joke - sanitize, sanitize, and sanitize again! Can’t wait to get back to feeling normal again and share more pretty pictures with all of you! What’s new for you this week? Anything fun!?
Doesn’t “Just Married” look reallllllly good on these two beautiful souls? Double-tap if you agree! 💍 This moment is something I LOVE to witness and capture as a wedding photog, because it’s a moment that I’ll never forget from my own wedding a few years ago! 💍 When Matt and I had our wedding day, I was just a huge bundle of nerves that I don’t remember a lot from that day. But THIS moment, the official first walk as husband and wife, is definitely a memory I’ll never forget, as that’s the moment so much anxiety and nervousness just melted away! 💍 So the topic is wedding memories: ♦️ Married friends - what was the part you remember most from your wedding day? ♦️ Engaged friends - what are you looking forward to the most on your wedding day? Let me know in the comments below! ❤️ #thebarnatstoneybrooke #justmarried #walkingdowntheaisle #herecomesthebride #happycouple #pawedding #paweddingphotographer #philadelphiaweddingphotographer #njweddingphotographer #lancasterphotographer #baltimoreweddingphotographer #marylandweddingphotographer #ruffledblog #marthaweddings #smpweddings #stylemepretty #barnwedding #gardenwedding #weddingidea #weddingceremony #ido #bridesmagazine
Matt told me that it’s supposed to snow 3-6” over the next couple days, so naturally I’m wearing my pajamas inside-out tonight! ❄️ Does anyone else have any funny memories as a kid of hoping/wishing/praying for a snow day? I know I sure did! I did the pajama thing, would wake up SUPER early just to see our school closing go across the banner on the news, then celebrate like it was Christmas morning! ❄️ Until the flakes fly, I’m going back and soaking in allllll this golden hour light with this gorgeous girl! Isn’t Julie just simply stunning!? ❄️ Tell me friends, the topic is SNOW: Love it? Hate it? I want to know! ❤️ . . . . . #snowdays #goldenhour #bridalportrait #herecomesthebride #justmarried #lightandairy #ilovesnow #njweddingphotographer #stoneharbor #lancasterpa #lancasterweddingphotographer #paweddingphotographer #philadelphiaweddingphotographer #baltimoreweddingphotographer #marylandweddingphotographer #baltimorebride #phillybride #2020bride #2019bride #wdofficial #weddingdresses #bridedress
Can we just give a little shout out to rings 🙌🏻? I mean, obviously they’re easy to drool over (c’mon, look at that gorgeousness!), but rings mean SO much more than that! 💍 It’s the physical representation that ties your souls together. It signifies an undying commitment to be there for better or worse, sickness and health. And it is a constant reminder that “death do us part” means something. 💍 Oh, and they make for some pretty stunning detail shots that I drool over all the time! ♦️ If you’re a photographer, what’s your favorite detail to photograph? ♦️ If you’re married, what was the favorite detail from your wedding? ♦️ If you’re engaged, what detail do you MOST want photographed at your wedding?

Ahhhh, it’s Friday and there A LOT of new faces around here lately (over 1,400 of you in the last month! My word, I’m floored 🥰, thank you!), so I wanted to introduce myself! 👀 I’m Elizabeth, but you can definitely call me Lizzie! I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in the gorgeous rolling farm country of Lancaster, PA (which believe it or not, is actually a super amazing city to live in too!) with my husband and firecracker almost two-year-old forever baby boy. 👪 I’m still booking 2019/2020 weddings, of course, and I’m also really branching into the education for creative small businesses side of things! Why? Because as I grew my business from nothing to something, had to re-locate and start all over, changed niches, styles, and branding, I had help from amazing pros in the field and I vowed to HELP OTHERS REALIZE THEIR DREAMS TOO when I got to a more sustainable place with my business! 💕 Along the way, I learned... 🛑 How to use SEO to get more business (helping me go full-time with photography a few years ago). 🛑 How to leverage Instagram to book more clients and reach more people (1,400 new follows in a month, ya’ll - I’m so grateful for ALL of you!). 🛑 How important a brand is to attracting your ideal clients! 🛑 How to create styled shoots and get published (like the styles shoot from the photos in this post!! ...and SO much more! Through all of these things, I’ve gained so much knowledge, and I want to share that with you all, FOR FREE! 🙌🏻 I’m putting the last touches on my education pages and I *so* want you to be the first to know when it opens up so you can get all these freebies and grow your business ASAP! 🚨 Best part is, you don’t even have to be a photographer for these! A lot of the methods I’ll be sharing (again, fo free!) are applicable to any small businesses! All you have to do is go to the link in my profile, click “Education”, then sign up! It’s that easy! I can’t WAIT to help you grow!
Imagine walking down the aisle with THIS beneath your feet! Talk about amazing! 🌺 I’m an absolute sucker for the “little things”. You know, the moments and things in life that are so small individually, but collectively paint a BIG picture. Like this small detail of this aisle runner, and how it contributes big things to the whole picture! 🌸 Many of you know that I’m pushing SO hard into releasing my education content (and I promise it’s coming soon - check out the education page in the link of my profile!), and my detail-oriented “little things” brain is pledging my whole being into providing amazing content to help other photographers, florists, planners, or anyone else in the creative small business field! It’s my drive, and my whole heart is being poured in! It’s going to be SO amazing for so many of you, and I’m so excited! 🌹 And as a wedding photographer, it’s these little details and moments that I get to capture that surround the day in love, excitement, and joy...and that makes me one happy lady! ✨ So tell me, what “little things” do you care about a whole awful lot? What makes you tick? What drives you? I want to learn more about you, so comment below! ❤️
