Alex and Ryan’s wedding day at Bell’s Banquets in Mount Pleasant, was a dream come true! The sun was shining and the birds were singing as the guests entered into the Barn for the ceremony. Everyone was on pins and needles wondering if Ryan would sing a song to Alex as he did when he […]

Alex & Ryan – Pittsburgh Engagement Photos – The Waterfront

I’m not going to lie: winter weddings are my favorite. Maybe it’s because it’s already the most wonderful time of the year! Maybe it’s because it’s the season I was married in! Maybe it’s because the first wedding I ever photographed was in the winter! There’s just something magical about it! Donna and Chris’s wedding […]

When we were kids, we had sleepovers where we would talk about the boys we liked, our dream weddings, and exactly what qualities we were looking for in a husband. That list looked something like, “Brown hair. Blue eyes. Really muscular. Loves Jesus.” Then we would write down all the names of the guys we […]

Everyone has heard of the show “married at first sight” right? Even if you’ve never watched it, it’s pretty clear what it’s about. A girl goes and gets her hair and makeup done, puts on a beautiful wedding dress, then walks down the aisle to a complete stranger and marries him. They have no idea […]

West Newton PA Wedding

This love story has been several years in the making. It’s not as simple as “They saw each other. They fell in love. They lived happily ever after.” Sometimes, the best love stories have some complications to them. You see, one morning at the Norwin Church of the Nazarene, the newly hired daycare director decided […]

Last winter, I got an email from Terra to see if I would be available to photograph her small wedding. Terra and James had wanted to have a big wedding, but after taking a good look at their budget, realized it just couldn’t happen. I was so excited to hear from her when she contacted […]

It was May 5, 2017 – Cinco de Mayo. It seemed appropriate for us taco fanatics to have more than just tacos to celebrate this day. I can’t even tell you the excitement and rush of adrenaline when those two pink lines appeared after those excruciatingly long 3.5 minutes. It was REAL. It was HAPPENING! […]
