My mission as a wedding photographer is to help happy couples celebrate life's biggest joys with high quality photos and a dang good time. I believe the experience is just as important as the photos and that you deserve beautiful, lasting memories.

End of summer date ideas for southeastern PA!!

Listen, y’all — it’s already August (like HOWWW the heck?!) and summertime is winding down. I don’t know about you, but I have a very long summer date list that needs to be checked off before sweater weather rolls around. If you’re local here in eastern PA, don’t worry — I gotchu. Here’s a list of summer date ideas to fit in before the cool breeze comes thru!!

  1. Phillies game
    DUHHHHH!! If you haven’t been to Citizen’s Bank park this season, what the HECK are you waiting for?! Phillies games are soooo much fun, the ballpark is the TOP-rated stadium for vegetarians (heck yeah!!) and you get a freaking GORGEOUS view of the Philly skyline as the sun goes down during the game. What’s there not to love?! Oh, and there’s always a chance that the kiss cam lands on you & your boo … ‘nuff said 😉

  2. Jim Thorpe
    Alright y’all, confession time — I’ve never been to Jim Thorpe. I know, crazy right?! This cute little town is situated right in the middle of the beautiful Pocono Mountains in northeastern PA. You can go on a super fun hike and then grab a bite to eat (& maybe a brew to drink?) in this cozy mountain town to replenish after the workout. And mayyyyybe y’all can stroll hand in hand past the cute little mom & pop shops before heading home in the evening … just sayin’ 🙂

  3. Longwood Gardens
    I mean, let’s face it — Longwood Gardens is beautiful in the spring and fall, too. But there’s just something about the way that summer sun sets and casts a golden glow on the impeccable landscaping in the gardens that just doesn’t quite match up to any other time of year. There’s also a beer garden and live performances in the evening, not to mention super cool fountain shows after night falls near the conservatory!!! I go here all the time for couples & engagement sessions, but I am DYING to go on a date here before the summer ends.

  4. Hershey Park/Dorney Park/Knoebels
    I feel like an amusement park trip is an ESSENTIAL summertime activity, especially at the end of the summer when the temperature is much more bearable than the middle of July!! Roller coasters, arcade games, log flooms, lazy rivers … if you want a day jam-packed with fun, amusement parks are your best bet. (Pro tip — if you’re a ride/roller coaster person, Hershey & Dorney are your best bets. If you would rather not scream all day and enjoy food stands & games, Knoebels is your place!)

  5. Jersey shore
    Okay, but did you really experience a full summer in eastern PA without making a trip to the Jersey shore??? I think not. If you time it juuuuuuust right, you can easily make it to the shore and back in a single day OR in a quick little weekend trip. Depending on the beach, there are plenty of places to park for free (helloooo, Belmar!) and there are so many cute towns to experience if the sun gets to be a little too much (hey Stone Harbor & Cape May!!). You just need to watch out for those pesky beach tags. But other than that, you’re golden!!

I hope this helps cure your end of summer blues & gives you some solid date ideas to squeeze in before Labor Day rolls around! I know I’ll be trying to do as many of these as possible before the breeze makes me shiver. Let me know if you end up doing any of these dates, I’d love to hear from you!!!!

Cheers to summer 2021 🙂

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
