Lancaster, Harrisburg & Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Tina Jay Photography »

A recurring theme for my 2017 weddings? The Cork Factory! I have a bunch of weddings at this venue in 2017, and I couldn’t be more excited – I love it there! Ali & Erik’s wedding last weekend was my first one of the year at The Cork Factory, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day. We all kept commenting on the weather all day long – not too hot,  not too cold….just right. They lucked out with the most amazing day for their April wedding!

I had so much fun celebrating with these two and their family. They’re the sweetest couple, and I couldn’t be more happy for them that they’re officially a married couple! Ever since we spent the day together in Boston last year for their engagement session, I knew their wedding would be an amazing one. We even had time to take some photos over on F&M’s campus, where these two met and started their relationship. Congrats again Ali + Erik!!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding, and view their SLIDESHOW for even more wedding pictures!

The Cork Factory is obviously known for a ton of brick walls – but I love that we were able to find some gorgeous spring flowers too!

I’m obsessed with this trend of greenery/florals cascading over the table to the floor. It looked amazing in person!

Guys, can you believe graduation is only about a month and a half away?! This year has seriously flown by, and I can’t believe we’re already creeping up on the end of the school year. Although I’m getting super pumped, because that means all of my senior sessions will start to ramp up again soon!

This year, I’m excited to be launching a new set of mini-sessions for any high school senior graduating in 2017! I’m going to host a day of “Cap + Gown Mini-Sessions” – they’re going to take place on Sunday, May 28th! So once you receive your cap & gown from your high school, you can get some awesome pictures in your gown with a bunch of friends:)

SO – mark the date! Sunday, May 28th. The number of session slots will be very limited, so you’ll want to sign up as soon as the dates are opened! I’m going to be opening up the booking for these sessions on Monday, May 1st. Mark your calendars! The sessions will be first come, first serve – so make sure to sign up right away if you want in on a mini-session!

I’ll be posting more info and details on my blog the day the time slots open (May 1st). So stay tuned! Until then, I’ll be dreaming of starting up all of my beautiful senior sessions!

Here we go friends, the gorgeous spring weddings have begun! I’m so excited to share Lindsey + Tom’s beautiful wedding at the Historic Acres of Hershey. Their venue is absolutely gorgeous, I loved getting to explore the property. These two lucked out with the most perfect spring day for their wedding – everything about the day was beautiful!

I had been excited for Lindsey + Tom’s wedding for a long time. One of the big reasons? Lindsey and I went to high school together, and it’s always so fun getting to be a part of someone’s wedding who I know. It was like a mini high school reunion! While I’ve known Lindsey for a long time, I met Tom for the first time on their wedding day. I’m so happy these two found each other – they make such a perfect match, and I loved seeing how happy they are around each other. Their day was a gorgeous and beautiful celebration, and I was so happy to be a part of the wedding! Congrats again you two:)

Here are some of my favorites from Lindsey + Tom’s wedding, and check out their SLIDESHOW for more of my favorites!

An announcement for all of my TJP seniors out there! The order deadline for your graduation announcements is less than 2 weeks away – make sure to get your orders and details over to me before the deadline so we can get everything ordered on time!

I’ve been knee deep in graduation announcements and invites over the past few weeks, and I’m loving how they’re all turning out. I got a bunch of announcements in at once last week, so I took some pictures of a few of my favorites. I love the designs these three girls chose – I can’t believe their senior year is about to come to a close already!

 

Pretty packaging is my favorite. The announcements are all wrapped up and ready to go!

So again a reminder to my senior girls – make sure to get your orders in, the deadline is less than 2 weeks away!

Well friends, some months it’s easy to know what I want my self portrait to be about, then there are other months like this one, where I just sit here and think “what did I even DO this month?!” Since I didn’t do anything super cool and fancy this month, I’m letting you in on a nerdy, embarrassing secret:

This month, what did I really get into? Logic puzzles. I’m literally laughing as I type this, because I can’t believe I’m sharing this:)

But if I want to be honest about my nerdy ways, here we go – I love puzzles. All kinds of puzzles. Crosswords, Sudoku, jigsaw puzzles, and my recent found fave: logic puzzles. My love of puzzles paired with my love of going to bed ridiculously early basically make me feel like I’m an 83 year old trapped in a 33 year old’s body. And I’m cool with that;)

So earlier this month while I was in Florida, I picked up a logic puzzle book. I had never done one before, and I’m hooked. I literally now “reward” myself after working for a few hours by giving myself a half hour to work on a logic puzzle. No need to make fun of me, Jay has done that enough for all of you;)

So this month, I’m feeling very logical. Just keepin’ this brain sharp, friends;)
