I’m not sure what’s more jaw-dropping...Megan’s amazing @bhldn outfit or this gorgeous @longwoodgardens backdrop! Do you think Longwood would have a problem with taking up permanent residence there?

They say you become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with...I say, you ARE you because of the people you spend the most time with! ✨ Surround yourself with the people who pick you up when you're down, bring you back to Earth when you fly a *little* to close to the Sun, and who fully love and support you for YOU - because you don't have time for anything less! ✨ Do you have some of these people in your life? Whether they're your #girlsquad or fam, leave them a shout out in this post to recognize them for what they mean to you!
If you asked me 10 years ago what I'd be doing today, I would 100% wholeheartedly tell you that I'd be a doctor. THAT'S the *only* thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up! ✨ But God had different plans for me. I found out quickly that college just wasn't for me. It wasn't that I couldn't do the school work, it was just that what my 'dream' of who I wanted to be didn't feel right anymore. ✨ My brain, being logical, was pulling me toward continuing my education and fulfilling that desire I had since I was little (I mean, duh you did all this work and spent all this money to even get this far - what are you thinking Lizz!), but my heart was pulling me in a different direction. ✨ That direction has led me here today, and put me on a platform with an audience that I can YELL FROM THE ROOFTOPS that it's okay if you change your mind. It's okay if you go in a different direction. We're all out here trying to battle the currents and the tide, when we should really be letting it lead us in the right direction...for us! What's your heart telling you? ✨ I WANT TO KNOW: what did you want to be when you grew up? Of course, I wanted to be a doc, but now I'm capturing beautiful souls on camera. My husband? He's *always* wanted to be a Meteorologist on TV - and he's living that dream now! It's so funny how things play out in our lives. What about you? . . . . . #fridaythoughts #motivation #lancasterpaphotographer #weddingphotographer #risingtide #makeitcount #calledtocreate #photographersofinstagram #photographersofinsta #weddingphotographersociety

True story: on most wedding days, @alyssabuntonphoto and I hit the nearest @chickfila for a pre-game meal. It has become our ritual, our moment of zen, and the way we gear up for a busy afternoon with amazing couples on the biggest day of their lives! So when it comes to updating the latest headshots, there's NO DOUBT that I'd bring my Chick along (yeah, we're close enough for nicknames now) for a photo op! 🐓 What's your go-to Chick-Fil-A order? I'll go first! Large number 1 (plain ya'll) with a Sprite. PS - no this is not an ad...I just love Chick-Fil-A this much! #mighthaveaproblem . . . . . #chickfila #eatmorechicken #noshame #hungryphotographer #funny #chickfilamoms #chickfilaislife #weddingphotographer #weddingrituals #funnymoments #funnymoment #photographersofinstagram #photographersofig #weddingphotographersociety #weddingphotographers #luxuryweddingphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #newheadshots
I knew I was going to like these two before our engagement session arrived, but I had NO IDEA how much I would 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 them! I met Zach and Erin on Zach’s family farm where we bonded over our affinity for old gravel roads, dog-parent life, and being born on July 22nd. To say we’re a match would be an understatement, and I am absolutely THRILLED to shoot their wedding! My brides have some serious style, ya’ll! . . . . . #engagementphoto #engagementphotos #justengaged #newlyengaged #newlyengaged💍 #engagementsessionideas #engagementsessions #marryingmybestfriend #feyonce #ruffledblog #couplegoals❤ #marryinghim #marthaweddings #philadelphiaengagement #phillybride #phillybrideguide #farmengagementsession #farmengagement #moderncouple #couplegoals #couplegoal #2019bride #2020bride
I've never been the strongest, or fastest, and I'm certainly not the smartest. I didn't get my degree in photography or advanced marketing...nope your girl is a college dropout! I'll never make it as a pageant winner, and I certainly won't win any fashion awards (unless maybe those awards are for yoga pants wearin' and dry shampoo rockin'!). I'm not the best mom, wife, daughter, sister, or friend, and I'll be honest - there are times when running a business feels like a hike to the top of Mt. Everest with no gear! 'Perfect' is showered in praise, while real life is hung out to dry, and it's so easy to focus on everything we're NOT in this world. But I want to start focusing on what you ARE! ❤️ You *are* amazing in your 3-day old outfit, hair in a bun, chasing your kids around and just trying to hold your house together. ❤️ You *are* incredible hustling from Sun up to Sun down just to try to grow a dream of yours. ❤️ You *are* remarkable going through life just trying to be a good human being and spread positive vibes everywhere you go. I want you to look in the mirror and see the person you ARE! Every flaw you have, every setback on your journey, and every single thing you do is uniquely you, and I want to celebrate that today! 🎉 Keep on being amazing - you each inspire me! Do you have a fun fact about you that tells about #whatyouare ? Any secret talents or dreams? I'd LOVE to hear about them! 👇 #whatyouare #motivation #communityovercompetition #risingtide #mompreneurs #photographersofinstagram #thisisme #lancasterpa #lancasterpaphotographer
