Countryside Fall Engagement Session You won’t believe this, but Kelsey was one of my students! It’s really hard for me to realize that I’ve been teaching for almost 20 years and my former 6th graders are now adults-getting MARRIED! I’ve had the pleasure of keeping up with Kelsey over the years and have watched her […]

A Saint Maria Goretti Parish Wedding Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Dominic and Morgan were married at St Maria Goretti, a Catholic Church in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh with only their immediate family and best friends present. I know it was very different from the original guest list of almost 200, but they made the most out […]

An Elegant Waterfront Wedding | Western Pennsylvania I have such an appreciation for 2020 brides and grooms. They have had to plan and reschedule and even recreate everything about their wedding day plans. Jenna and Jeffrey were faced with changing their date, location, venue, guest list and almost everything was different from the original plans…however […]

Words can’t express how much I love this little family! I adore how they love each other and their adorable daughter, Adley! They are getting married in 2021 and its going to be the most amazing day!! Enjoy some of my favs from their recent engagement session!

Barbara and Tony may have met by accident but they are truly meant to be together! They have been engaged since August 30, 2019 after a sweet Tennessee surprise engagement.

Look at these two! They are completely adorable and after spending the evening with them during their engagement session, it is obvious they are meant to be together.

You’re going to love the sunset portraits and the rustic portraits in the woods with glowy light peeking through the trees…. but what I loved the most about this wedding is the couple! They are family!! Sam is Aaron’s cousin and I have known Sam […]

It may have been by coincidence that Anita and Michael met, but after spending time with them at their engagement session, it is so evident that they are meant to be together. Michael and Anita attended preschool and swim lessons together until Michael and his family moved away around age 8 and they didn’t see each […]

A Sunrise Beach Wedding | Ocean City, Maryland Looking at these images…all I can think of is how gorgeous and perfect their wedding portraits are but this is not at all how their wedding day plans began soon after their 2019 engagement. Liz and Zach had a June 12, 2020 wedding day selected for their […]

There are so many things that I could say about this day…. about this couple… about their story… about their joy. Jedidiah and Olivia’s family and friends were just a DELIGHT to be around! Their entire family loves the Lord and has such a beautiful dynamic. They all have such a special love and respect […]
