A Farmhouse Flowers Engagement You know how great it feels to be around someone who just makes you feel like you can be 100% yourself? It’s the best feeling! That’s how I felt around Elliette and Ben. These two are incredibly laid back and joyful. Their entire engagement session was filled with laughter, and I […]

A Countryside Engagement I loved my time with Kat and Robert. Their engagement session resulted in gorgeous images and it also allowed me to have some really awesome time to get to know the two of them. I could have talked to them for hours! They drove almost 2 hours to meet me for their […]

A Clearcreek State Park and Flower Farm Engagement This session was just as sweet as it looks. I spent the evening with Katie and Keith in the country outside of Brookville, Pennsylvania. Katie and Keith’s families have been friends for years and have secretly been scheming to match-make them for years. Life took them in […]

A Trinity Point Church Wedding | Clarion, Pennsylvania Nicole and Caleb are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and […]

A Maker’s Warehouse Wedding | Saint Mary’s Pennsylvania One of my favorite things to experience at a wedding is watching the bride and groom really realize how much their life has just changed. Normally when this happens, there are tears and hugs and a few minutes of just being in awe of what just happened. […]

Amy and Derek were so easy to talk to and get to know. As soon as I introduced myself, it felt like I had known them forever! As we walked around Clear Creek State Park, I heard about their families, their wedding planning, their jobs, and what they love most in life. It’s sessions like […]
