Maddie + Jimmy | If not Jesus, then Jimmy

You may remember a post from a little while back, about Maddie + Jimmy and their downtown Harrisburg engagement session!! Well, now we are officially at Part 2 of their love story with Philter: The Wedding Day!!!!

These two tied the knot in a full mass ceremony at Holy Name, in front of family + friends, and, guys, a whole lot of love was shared. Maddie was convinced that she was not cut out for marriage. In fact, she was looking into dedicating her life to the Catholic church when Jimmy walked into her life. While I don’t think either of them would argue that Jimmy has stolen her heart, I think he certainly has a chunk of it and it became clear to Maddie that this was the plan for her life. The two of them lead a wonderful life in Nashville, TN, and they’re sweetest FREAKING couple that has ever existed.

There is not much more I can say, but there is a LOT I can show you….

And there you have it, folks. The best day ever.

Cherish Sessions | Celebrating Motherhood

This July, we're excited to announce that we're launching a whole new type of family photo from Philter: The Cherish Sessions. Celebrating everything that makes motherhood magical and capturing every tiny kiss, hand hold, and interaction with your little. Fully styled and curated to give you those warm gooey feelings! 

Set in a field in Harrisburg, complete sunset golden light, blowing grasses, a client closet stuffed full of flowy, floral dresses, and a mini makeup application (lashes, contouring + lips!) so that mama feels like the queen she is, these sessions will take your breath away. 

Here's a little preview of whats to come!!

Mandy + Cole | Two Funky Gals in Love

There is not much to say about Mandy and Cole other than the fact that we immediately clicked. They came in, we joked around with each other, and they told me they wanted to make things as easy as possible, and I had what they needed. We planned their engagement session and chatted about their wedding later this fall, and everything fell into place. 

The girls own a cute house that is almost too far from a Target that it makes me cry, BUT they have two (three now!) dogs, a great sense of style, and a banging sense of humor! I showed up on a chilly afternoon for some engagement photos at home with their dogs, and then we went down to the icy Susquehanna "just for fun" and got some fun shots along the river and woods. 

As Cole would say, "Okay sis, you're going to post a blog post about us? Like for real?!"

(I can actually hear her saying that though -insert cry-laugh face here lol-)
