Owner & Lead Photographer
I photographed my first wedding when I was 15 and knew immediately that this was what I wanted to do when I grew up! Right out of high school, I bought the local bridal boutique and my whole life revolved around weddings. My passion and love for photography has only grown stronger while managing my own business and the creative team of photographers who have joined me. I believe in uplifting others and celebrating the little things in life. I am a romantic sap and my favorite question to ask people is how they met their significant other (I love a good love story!) My approach to wedding days is to make sure everyone feels comfortable, I'll strike up a conversation with anyone & strive to make people smile. I think adventures are where the best memories come from and as the oldest of 10 kids, I've learned the balance of being the overprotective & prepared mom and the fun aunt all rolled into one! It's important for me to get to know my clients and I treat each bride like she's my best friend walking down that aisle. My favorite titles now is Mama to our sweet little girl and wife to Paul. When I am not photographing weddings, I am enjoying being on the farm with our daughter, gardening, baking, or scheming up Paul's next home project :)

Sarah is a Georgia native who has recently migrated up north. When she’s not photographing someone’s dream wedding day you can find her chasing her three little kiddos around the yard or trying out a new baking recipe. Her life is beautifully chaotic and she wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s a dream of Sarah & her husband’s to settle down on a small piece of land away from the city so they can raise some chickens, veggies, and take life a little slower. That is what she loves so much about photography– it forces us to slow down and truly look at things around us. We believe that photographs should be bright, joyful, and timeless and that they should be printed and hung in your home. Sarah feels like they should be heirlooms that tell your story and can be passed down from generation to generation.

Hunter has been here since wedding #1 when she was just 13 years old and somehow is still smiling when I tell her my next big idea! :) She loves a good house remodeling project, being with family & friends, and playing guitar in the worship band at church or going off roading in her Jeep. Hunter is president of the business our Dad founded, Spectrum Electrical Services, so she works as an electrical contractor during the week & trades steel toed boots for ballet flats on wedding days. She’s a lady of many talents! On wedding days, she will be the one to help pin boutonnieres on the groomsmen, hand your sweet mama tissues, and make sure everyone is looking at the camera during family portraits.

Paige is a girly girl, a wife to an amazing husband, a mommy to the cutest little girl Iris, and follower of Jesus. She is a lifestyle photographer, creator, blogger, and stay-at-home momma! You can find her in cute coffee shops and she believes discovering pretty things is a hobby. Paige is in love with anything feminine and elegant. She has a wanderlust heart and yearns to travel more and more. She’s obsessed with European fashion and lifestyle and dreams of a white linen dress strolling through a small town filled with cobblestone streets, basket in hand, picking up my fresh produce for the day!

Paul is Seneca's husband and they absolutely love being a husband and wife team. Paul keeps everything organized, handles all the equipment behind the scenes, makes photos fun for the guys on a wedding day and will go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfectly captured. He's a pro at pinning bouts and tying ties and loves a good dance party reception. When he's not at a wedding or working behind the scenes, you'll find him outside, spending time with our daughter Ailish, building something new, or gardening.
Seneca and Hunter started photographing weddings nearly 10 years ago and over the past couple of years, we realized that there were so many couples that we weren’t able to serve because we couldn’t be in 2 places at once! That’s when our team of photographers was born! All of our photographers are professional photographers who have been trained to photograph and serve our clients the same experience that Seneca has been known for. Seneca handles all of the communication and editing so there is consistency and we can promise you the same level of quality, regardless of which one of our photographers is there snapping the photo of your first kiss and big group hug on the dance floor at the end of the night.
We have been named the Best Wedding Photographer in NEPA from Happenings Magazine 4 years in a row!
