wedding couple embraces and laugh

January 8, 2019

 Abby & Tanner’s day was an absolute BLAST to be a part of!  My face hurt from laughing, my mascara was runny from all the tears I cried, and my heart was so happy.    I first met this couple a few years ago when I photographed her brother’s wedding.  I remember snapping photos of them […]

Sara & Ben are so sweet and fun.  We decided to do their engagement session down by the river at Bridgewater Crossing, which is one of my favorite photo spots!  Sara called me the morning of the session freaking out because they’d had a run of bad luck, including but not limited to pink eye.  […]

I was so excited when my childhood friend asked me to take senior photos of her daughter Camryn at their home in Milesburg. I’ve been wanting to expand my photography area into central PA, where I grew up, so when Becca asked me to do Camryn’s seniors, I not only jumped at the chance, I […]

I’ve been looking forward to Rachel & Andrew’s day ever since they announced their engagement.  I photographed the wedding of Rachel’s sister and brother-in-law, Victoria and Daniel, a few years ago and totally fell in love with this entire family.  Not only are they the sweetest folks, but they know how to party! We started the day […]

A few days ago I shared some photos from Maverick’s Fresh 48 Hospital session.  A few days after that, I went to the family’s home and got some photos of him with his parents and siblings before doing a few solo shots of the handsome little guy. We started out with sibling shots.  His brother […]

There isn’t a whole lot that’s cuter than a newborn baby with a mohawk.  Little Maverick is the fourth child for Molly and Chris, whose wedding I photographed a few years ago. I met them at Forbes Hospital in Monroeville for a Fresh 48 session.  Fresh 48 hospital sessions are some of my favorite.  It’s special to […]

Mark and Jocelyn’s wedding kicked off my 2018 wedding season with a fantastic day. We started the day at St. Joseph Church in Coraopolis where Jocelyn, her daughter Lily and her bridesmaids got ready.  The Lydia’s flower shop did an amazing job incorporating these dog tags that belonged to Jocelyn’s grandfather.  What a lovely way to honor a loved one. […]

I started the day at Kreations Hair Studio & Spa where Bekky and her crew of wonderful bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done.  We then […]
