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

Oh, how I love weddings at Ironstone Ranch! It’s one of my favorite venues – it’s such a gorgeous property and all of the people that work there are so amazing, helpful, and nice. I was so excited to be a part of Krystle + Jason’s July wedding at the ranch, and they lucked out with a gorgeous (although hot!) summer day for their celebration.

I absolutely loved all of the details that they put together for their wedding too – it all fit so perfectly with the ranch/orchard setting. Everything about their day was gorgeous! And a special thanks to Hillary and Sarah for stepping in to photograph their day for me – they did an amazing job and I couldn’t wait to share these images!

Here are a few of my favorites from Krystle + Jason’s wedding, and make sure to view their SLIDESHOW for even more wedding pictures!

There’s nothing I love more than a center city engagement session in Philly! It always makes me miss my time living in the city, those were such fun years. I’m always so glad we still live close enough to the city to still visit from time to time:) Sarah and Joe chose to have their engagement session in the Old City area, where you can always find a ton of awesome spots and hidden areas for a shoot. It’s one of my favorite locations!

Sarah + Joe are getting married in September, and I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing wedding if their engagement session is any preview! A huge thank you to my good friend Adrienne for stepping in to shoot this engagement session for me – she photographed it and I edited:) I couldn’t wait to share all of this gorgeousness, so without further ado, here are my favorites!

You know what makes me happy? Engagement sessions as adorable as this one:) Laura + Nate had their engagement session at Fort Hunter Park, which was a perfect outdoorsy location for these two. And when an engagement session involves a couple’s cute pup? Even better! I love when couples bring their dogs….it makes me want to have a shoot with Jay, Holly and I!

You know what ELSE makes me happy? Clients as sweet as these two. It’s been a rough ride this last month with everything that was going on in my life, so when my couples are SO incredibly understanding, sweet, and kind, it truly means the world to me. And Laura is that exact person – so incredibly sweet and kind that it literally brings tears to my eyes – I’m so lucky to have the most amazing clients in the world! You’re the best Laura:)

And now on to the engagement session! Here are a few of my faves – love everything about these two!

Ohhhh these two – is there another couple I love more? Definitely not! I photographed Lora + Eric’s engagement session and wedding a few years back, and we’ve become such close friends ever since. Developing friendships with couples I work with is pretty much my favorite thing ever. These two moved from Philly to Central PA last year, just like Jay and I did a few years back. Eric is an attorney just like Jay, and Lora is a wedding planner extraordinaire (Laurel & Elm), so we’re both in the same industry:) We joke all the time about how we’re pretty much life twins at everything we do.

Lora & I became SO close over this last year, bonding in Central PA. I’m SO sad that they’re now moving back to Philly next week! While I’m happy for them since this was always their goal, I’m selfishly sad for myself – Lora and I literally go out to lunch multiple times a week, I don’t know what I’m going to do without you Lora! Day trips back and forth to Philly are going to have to happen:)

We made sure to schedule time for a photoshoot before the big move happened, and I’m so glad we fit it in! It may have been raining/drizzling the entire time, but we made it work:) We headed over to Venue Chilton for their session – I’m pretty much obsessed with this venue! It’s the most gorgeous private estate in Mechanicsburg, I wish I could shoot there all the time. Here are some of my favorites from their session!

Oh these two. Seriously one of my favorite couples of all time:)

  • Jess Hetrick - Aw they are an amazing couple! I love all of those archway photos! And Lora looks stunning as always! Love that dress!ReplyCancel

For as many sessions and weddings I’ve photographed around Philly, I can’t believe this is my first time ever shooting an engagement session in Conshohocken! Jenna + Chris chose this location since they live right in town, and it’s where they moved in together for the first time. I love when couples choose a location that means something to them! Lucking out with a perfectly gorgeous summer day is an added bonus too.

These two totally took me back to my public accounting days, since they both worked at the same firm as me! They started after I left, but Chris still works with some of my old co-workers, so it was fun to reminisce:) Jenna + Chris met when they both started working at the firm together, and their relationship took off after about a year of friendship. Years later they moved in together and got engaged, and the rest is history!

Jenna + Chris, thanks for an amazing engagement session, I had a blast with you both! Can’t wait for the wedding next year! Here are a few of my favorites:)
