Fridays with Emerald Stone [Wk.4] Kayla & Jack’s engagement

Happy Friday friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful week, and I’m sure everyone is ready for the weekend! Does anyone have any fun plans?! Emerald Stone Photography just moved this week (still local to York, PA) and we have a ton of unpacking to do this weekend! We’ve been crazy busy all week with the move, but unpacking and personalizing our space will be so fun! 🙂 We are now located in Manchester, PA!! And LOVE it here. Something REALLY awesome – there is a gorgeous wedding venue right down the street from our new place called Historic Shady Lane. I’ve never been so close to such a stunning venue!! I can see a blog on this wedding venue in my near future. Have any of you ever been??

This week I am blogging about a Super cute couple, Kayla & Jack! Last week, on that very beautiful warm & sunny February day, we photographed their engagement session in downtown Frederick. It was such a great afternoon hanging out and getting to know this beautiful couple. We had a ton of laughs, and captured some really special moments between these two. Below I have highlighted some of our favorite images from their session. I cannot wait until their wedding day in May! It’s coming up So fast!! ❤

Fridays with Emerald Stone [Wk.3] Saying YES or NO to a First Look

Happy happy BEAUTIFUL Friday everyone!! I can’t believe this gorgeous weather in February! Even better, I get to shoot an amazing outdoor engagement session in downtown Frederick today in this weather! 🙂 So excited!

Today I am blogging on First Looks. I have so many bride-to-be’s ask me the question  “what do you think about a first look, we’re undecided?” While many brides stay traditional and want the first time their groom to see them to be walking down the aisle, other brides look forward to that moment they can see each other dressed for their wedding just the two of them to make it more intimate. So while it’s totally up to you on what is important to you for your big day, I’ve posted my thoughts below! I hope this helps in your big decision to have a first look, or not! ❤

-To DO or NOT TO DO a First Look at Your Wedding-

I have had the amazing pleasure of shooting many weddings throughout the years and I have seen so many different ways to do things! I have shared some of the neatest moments with our clients – and for that I am so so thankful.
