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

I hope everyone is having an awesome week and has fun plans for Memorial Day this weekend! I have a wedding on Saturday, but then I’ll be relaxing the other two days. So it will be a little bit of work, a little bit of play – just the way I like it:)

I couldn’t wait to share Chris + Jenna’s wedding with you – their day was gorgeous, and it was full of so much happiness and joy. Being a part of weddings like theirs is why I am SO in love with my job. These two are so clearly meant for each other, and they’re such a sweet couple. I’ve loved getting to know them over the past few months, and I was so excited to be a part of their wedding. Their wedding was at The Manor House at Commonwealth, which couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for their beautiful day.

Jenna + Chris used to work at the same accounting firm I used to work for, but they started after I left to go into photography full time. So it was so fun to reunite with a few of my old accounting coworkers at the wedding – it’s always fun when my old accounting world and my photography world collide! Who knew accounting would bring so many amazing people into my life, right?!

Here are a few of my favorites from Chris + Jenna’s wedding, and check out their SLIDESHOW for even more wedding pictures! Congrats you two!

Jenna’s mom told me they painted this room specifically for the getting ready pictures I was taking…..I like their sytle;)

Married!

I love this vintage truck they used to drive Jenna to the ceremony. It’s the exact same truck Jenna’s parents drove to their own wedding ceremony many years before. And the customization on the back?? I love it! Their last name is “Rhoads”, don’t you love the pun?!

This was a first for me – I told the bridal party to walk towards me with arms linked. It quickly turned into the entire bridal party surrounding me in a circle chanting my name…..I still can’t stop laughing just thinking about it;)

Don’t you just love all of the different shades of blue in these bridesmaid dresses??? I was obsessed!

It makes my job so easy when couples interact so easily and naturally with each other. That’s exactly how Jenna + Chris are….it was a dream to photograph them!

My senior session calendar is filling up like crazy, and I absolutely can’t wait for the sessions to start this season! These two mini BFF sessions were the perfect way to kick things off and get me into senior gear. I met up with two of my Senior Team girls and their BFF’s to have a fun little photoshoot….and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how they turned out. I am so in love with the concept of these shoots, because who wouldn’t want to have some amazing photos of themselves with their best friend before they head off to college? I know I would have LOVED this in high school…..and let’s be honest, I loved it when I did it THIS year with my best friend! Check out the last blog post if you want to see pictures from that;)

The first mini BFF session was with one of my Class of 2018 Senior Team girls, Alyssa and her bestie, Michala. These girls are so sweet, and have been best friends since 4th grade! Alyssa says Michala feels more like a sister than a best friend – isn’t that the best?! Here are a few of my favorites from their mini session:

Next up for the mini BFF session was one of my Class of 2017 Senior Team girls, Kenzie and her bestie Mary! I had so much fun with these two, and I was so happy to be able to document a little bit of their friendship before they head off to college in the fall.  Here are some of my faves!

Thanks ladies, I had so much fun with all 4 of you!

This is starting to feel like the year of me offering lots of new sessions, and I’m kinda loving it;) Tomorrow I’m going to be photographing a few BFF sessions for my TJP Senior Team girls. A BFF session is exactly what it sounds like – a short and fun session with you and your best friend, to get some amazing pictures together. Who wouldn’t love that before they go off to college??

When I decided I wanted to start offering these sessions, I immediately called Sam, my best friend in the entire world, and asked her to get in on a little session with me. Why not have a 33 year old version of a BFF session?! Sam and I live a little over an hour apart, but we still manage to see each other pretty often. Since we hang out so much, we are the WORST about getting pictures together…..we hardly have any. It’s just something we never think about doing when we’re together. So I’m glad we took the time to take these, now we have a BUNCH to enjoy:)

So a few weeks back I headed to her house, showed her hubby how to use my camera, and he was nice enough to get a bunch of photos for us. I can’t even tell you how much I love these photos! I’m so glad we did this. And if I felt that way just getting a few for my blog, I know all of my girls are going to love doing this with their friends too.

Sam and I have been friends since 6th grade. Which means we have literally been friends for 20 years now (dear lord I feel old). We both were taking an after school babysitting class when we met. We didn’t know each other, and she pretended to blow her nose in my hair. I decided, “you’re weird….we’ll be friends.” And the rest is history;)

Even after going to separate high schools and colleges, we’ve stayed super close. She’s that friend that I tell anything and everything to. Even those thoughts that you think you can’t admit to another human – she is my person. Everyone needs a friend like that!

Sammy J, you’re my sister from another mister, and I don’t know what I’d do without you in my life. Love you lots!

 

Sam is super outgoing and freaking hilarious – so I feel like this is the perfect picture of what it looks like when we hang out together;)

 

Love this one!

 

Just two 33 year olds skipping through a field holding hands (yes, we felt ridiculous, but it was also so ridiculous that it was so fun;)

I’m glad I could introduce you all to my BFF – she’s the best!

Like I said, I’m going to be photographing some BFF sessions for a few of my Senior Team girls tomorrow, and I can’t wait! Later in the summer I’m going to open up a whole day of BFF mini sessions to anyone who wants in on the fun – stay tuned for more details later!

Whew, things have been a complete whirlwind around here lately! It’s been a crazy busy time between weddings, my big Senior Team shoot for the Class of 2018, and scheduling a bunch of senior sessions for this summer – it’s going to be a very, very good year! Side note: I’m going to be opening my summer schedule for senior sessions this coming Monday! So to all of the girls I have on my wait list, you’ll be hearing from me soon!

This past Sunday I photographed my big TJP Senior Team photoshoot, which was titled “Seniors en Blanc”. We traveled down to Historic Shady Lane for our shoot, and it was absolutely, utterly, ahhhhhh-mazing. I just love these girls, and they knocked it out of the park with this shoot. As a photographer, it’s always so fun to see your vision and weeks of planning become a reality. I’m going to be posting so many more photos so very soon, but I couldn’t resist posting a sneak peek tonight!

So here we go, a little sneak peek into our “Seniors en Blanc” photoshoot:

Are these girls not all kinds of amazing?!? I am dying over this photo!

Oh friends, I couldn’t be more excited to share today’s wedding with you! Last weekend I was back at The Cork Factory for LeeAnn + Bryan’s wedding, and it was such a perfect day. It’s always an honor to be invited to be a part of anyone’s wedding…..but when it’s someone you know, it’s even MORE of an honor. LeeAnn is my hairstylist (and she’s the best EVER!) and has been for years, so I was thrilled when she asked me to be a part of her wedding. She also has the coolest style of anyone I know, so I knew it would be an amazing day:)

LeeAnn planned such a gorgeous wedding and I was in love with all of her details. My favorite part?? Her DRESS! It was pretty much the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. And you should have seen it sparkle while she walked in the sunlight – it was perfection. I was also in love with all of the rose gold, the bouquets, the bridesmaids dresses, ahhh! It was all amazing, and you can see for yourself below:)

Congrats again LeeAnn + Bryan, I absolutely loved being a part of your wedding day! Everyone can also view their SLIDESHOW for even more wedding pictures. But for now, here are my favorites!

LeeAnn’s makeup was done by Veronica, who did an amazing job as always. I love that she didn’t want the traditional bridal look – but went much more glam:)
