A Classic Downtown Winter Wedding | Dubois, PA I remember leaving Michael and Kimberly’s engagement session, thinking “They are just so much FUN!” and I knew that once their wedding day was here it was going to be a party! I was right! These two were surrounded by such amazing family and friends on their […]

A Pinecrest Country Club Wedding | Brookville, PA The week before Clay and Heather’s wedding, Heather shared with me how much she was hoping for snow.

Red Fern | Kersey PA Wedding It’s really hard to explain just how much Claire & I love these two. They have every characteristic of the perfect SH Couple and then some! They are relaxed, trusting, energetic, funny and very much in love. Macy and Michael had the most amazing group of friends and family […]

An Elegant Waterfront Wedding | Western Pennsylvania I have such an appreciation for 2020 brides and grooms.

Jenna and Jeffrey were faced with changing their date, location, venue, guest list and almost everything was different from the original plans…however […]

This is a very special wedding that I’m sharing today! 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 […]

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.
