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 […]

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. Claire and I had the honor of capturing their engagement session and we are SO excited to be a part of their wedding later this […]

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. Stefany and Mitch went to school together and have known each other their entire lives…however it was the local county fair that brought them together, so what […]

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 […]

“I would love some dreamy pictures in the snow”…were the opening words of Heather’s email to me about her engagement photos.

As family was busy planning a surprise 30th birthday party […]

Tristen and Kelsey met their senior year of high school. They went all through elementary and high school without ever having a conversation with each other. Kelsey shared with me how she vividly remembers their first conversation. They were standing backstage during a high school choir concert. They both played the part of elves in […]

Ryan and Brianna traveled from Virginia to meet with me for their engagement session and I couldn’t wait to finally hug them in person. Brianna and I had planned for weeks for their engagement session and her bright and bubbly personality was very evident over the phone and I knew that they were both going […]

Here’s a story for you: This shoot put me in the back of a police car! Not what you think though, I wasn’t really being hauled off to jail. Austin is a Police Officer for the Brookville Police Department and Brittany is a R.N. and works at the Dubois Hospital Intensive Care Unit. We just […]

A Western Pennsylvania Engagement Shoot You all know that I love blooms… but this session just took it to a whole new level! I had spent days looking for the perfect location and I couldn’t wait to capture Ethan and Brooke’s engagement session. Unfortunately, PA weather postponed our shoot…however the sunshine finally found its way […]
