APRIL                MIKE



Have you ever seen the devil wears Prada? Well, if you haven’t you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about, but, like Miranda said to Andy “You have no sense of style or sense of fashion.” That was me about 4 years ago. Honesty, I still don’t think I completely have it down. So if you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be specializing in Fashion Editorials I would have laughed in your face!

Spring of 2018, the wedding and lifestyle blog Perfete sent Mike and myself to New York Bridal Fashion Week to attend fashion shows, meet with designers, and document it all for their blog. I remember the first designer we met was Yaniv Persy and he is the sweetest, most talented Israeli Bridal Couture Designer and I totally fan girled! Here I was, a little Lancaster County, Tom Boy, Small town girl in New York City at Bridal Fashion Week meeting with designers from all around the world! Like seriously could not get over it. The honor, the thrill, the irony. It was all too incredible! But the thing that was even more surprising was I loved it!

With this new found love of the fashion world, I immediately wanted to immerse myself in it. I’m the kind of person that will just dive full into something I want to grow in. With this I reached out to my dear friends at Posh Bridal (which is where I bought my wedding gown) in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Since then we have been planning an editorial shoot featuring some of their incredible designers that they work with. We recruited some gorgeous local models and the cream of the crop professionals and together we created a stunning and clean editorial.
