New Year, New Adventures // Website Launch

There is a few exciting things happening over here at ABP! Not one but two new adventures. One of them being this pretty new site your reading and browsing through. 

For the past few weeks, I have been working with Brand Society (all the way over in Italy!) to make this dream come true. It’s been two years since I last updated my website, WHAT?! I know, I know but I am so thrilled to show it off and to see how I’ve grown, not only artistically but as a business. Stepping into this new year feeling ready to conquer everything that comes towards me was definitely the way I wanted to start the year. 

Not only is this new website launch something i’ve been working on but organizing my clients is another 2018 goal of mine. So from now on, I will have a calendar system for all of my future clients. This is not only going to be huge for me but for you as well! You can book up to 3 months in advance (weddings exclude from this obviously) and get text reminders about your session. No more over worked, over booked photographer over here!

FINALLY - as I’m sure you can see from the images, my office is *finished*. It has been a huge labor of love. From all sides. A huge shoutout goes to my husband, father in law and my dad! I couldn’t have gotten this far without your help. I am so ECSTATIC to finally have a dedicated space for work and my clients. I have a ton of client meetings and reveal sessions and they finally have a home. YAY! 

Now - go enter into the launch contest for a chance to win a session!

Hornberger Wedding // Pajama Factory - Williamsport, PA

Ashley and Michael have known each other their whole lives. Ashley has been best friends with Michael's sister for what seems like forever, so it was inevitable that the two started dating.  After 3 years of dating, they made it official when Michael proposed to her in Central Park.  The wedding was held in Williamsport and the couple was surrounded by so many of their loved ones.

Ashley wore a beautiful gown from Diamonds and Lace with lace capped sleeves. The bridesmaids wore a beautiful shade of deep red, the perfect color for a September wedding. The groom and his groomsmen wore slate grey with a pop of color in their boutonnières to match the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

The reception was held at the Pajama Factory and the room was tastefully decorated to fit their personalities and style. They went with their favorite pattern, marble! There was a beautiful pop of marble throughout the room. From the cake to the backdrop to even the table numbers, the colors and décor blended beautifully.  As the couple danced their first dance to Hold On by Michael Buble, you could feel the love in the room. The newlyweds and their guests danced and laughed the night away!

Alison Gardner // Milton Senior High School

Alison and I walked all around Williamsport for her senior session, taking photos at some favorite places and chatting about all of the extra-curricular she is involved in at school.  As her shoot went on and she got more comfortable in front of the camera, you could see her confidence shine. With that beautiful smile and radiant personality, I knew her photos would be nothing short of amazing. 

Not only is she a busy student planning for college, she is also involved in Varsity and competition cheerleading, the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Team Cambodia, Outdoor club and the Student Government.

She decided to pamper herself a little before her shoot and get her hair and makeup done. Her outfits and accessories were perfect to show her personality and style. I know she will do so many great things at Wilkes University, and I hope they are ready for that big, beautiful smile!

Marisa & Brendan // Engagement Session at Wilkes University

From the moment I met Marisa and Brendan, I knew that their engagement session would be nothing short of amazing. The two met and started dating in their college days at Wilkes University and have been so in love ever since.

Their love story started in college so it only made sense for their engagement shoot to be back at their old stomping grounds, Wilkes University. From the moment the session started, they both had the biggest smiles on their face. They warmed up to the camera quickly and it was like I wasn’t even there.

From behind the camera, I couldn’t help but smile. You could feel the love between the two and how comfortable they are with each other.
