Family Session on Film at the Walled Garden

This beautiful Family Session on Film at the Walled Garden at Mellon Park is really special, as it was also at my favorite location in the city! Sheena and I have worked together in the past, so seeing her again and getting to meet her family was such an honor. I love it when clients return, year after year, as I get to see their family, relationships, and love that they build together truly blossom. Family sessions really make my heart sing! I don't get to do many family sessions throughout the year, as my schedule tends to quickly fill up with weddings and boudoir clients, but when I get to work with past clients who I absolutely adore, it makes these sessions so much more meaningful and special.

If you are interested in booking a fall family session, contact me now, as I have limited spots left for 2018!

White and Gold Wedding at The Pennsylvanian

Carlie and Mike's beautiful white and gold wedding at The Pennsylvanian was a perfect and elegant event. The neutral color palette along with hints of yellow and rose gold and a splash of navy added a simple and classic touch. Carlie got ready at her parent's home before heading to St. Bede's Church for the ceremony. We then stopped for portraits at one of my favorite locations in the city, and where we did their engagement photos, The Walled Garden at Mellon Park. We could not have asked for a more beautiful, although chilly, day! You would not have guessed how cold it was because everyone, including the bridal party, rocked their portraits! We then headed to The Pennsylvanian, where the reception set up was complete with a custom bar adorned with photos from their engagement session!

Carlie and Mike met in graduate school and quickly became friends. Studying, hanging out, and doing almost everything together. They did not go out on their first date until after they both graduated, but you can say the rest was history! Mike proposed to Carlie on Memorial Day weekend while they were in New York visiting family. Mike took Carlie to the same restaurant they celebrated their graduation and got down on one knee by the Hudson River and asked her to marry him. They then celebrated the rest of the evening with their family who traveled into the city for the engagement!!

Working with Carlie and Mike was an absolute dream, from their engagement session, through their wedding, and now creating an heirloom album for their family to enjoy for generations to come - it's truly special! I love to build relationships with my clients and invest in them as much as they invest in me, which makes the entire process from start to finish so much more unique, meaningful, and of course fun!! Thank you to Carlie and Mike for letting me capture your beautiful wedding day!

Engagement Photography Session in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

Allie and Michael chose to do their engagement photography session in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, as it's a special city - it's where they got engaged and are currently living. Allie and Michael wanted to capture the memories of this old and fabulous city before they moved on to a new adventure and chapter in their lives...Pittsburgh!! Yes, Allie and Michael are in the process of moving to the Burgh, and I am so excited for their wedding next year! These two are truly the sweetest and kindest people you will ever meet, and I had so much fun spending the afternoon walking around Old Town Alexandria with them, their adorable puppy Mildred (Millie)...and my husband in tow! I will say, my husband is an excellent assistant and film loader, think I can convince him to shoot weddings with me too?? I love traveling for weddings and sessions, and it is a perk when I get to bring my hubby along with me, which does not happen often! Millie was also a really great sport, hanging out with Mom and Dad while we took photos of all three of them. I absolutely LOVE DOGS, so having them at any session is always ok with me!

Allie and Michael, thank you for trusting in to capture these memories in a city you will always love!

Estes Park Engagement Photography

Joshua and Manuel's Estes Park Engagement Photography session was amazing on so many levels! This session was really special for me to photograph, as Josh is my first cousin, so when they asked me to fly out to Denver for their engagement session I immediately said, yes! Josh and Manuel have impeccable style and taste, so of course, wearing suits in the snow up at Estes Park was a no-brainer. Their suits are handmade and tailored to fit, as they got them in Thailand on their pre-honeymoon trip together. Family means the world to me, it's one of the reasons why I opted for an intimate wedding with just family, so getting to photograph these two to create these memories as they start their life together was truly an honor. We could not have had a more perfect two days in Denver. We started out our session in downtown Denver, stopping at some beautiful bridges and overlooks on the way. The next day we ventured into Estes Park, which is a drive outside the city, but totally worth it! It was absolutely freezing, and my fingers were so cold I could barely roll my film! Josh and Manuel were troopers and made these photos look totally effortless as they posed in the snow. They even brought their adorable pup Leo, who I got the meet the first day they brought him home almost two years ago! I am so excited to celebrate these two in October in California!

Seven Springs Engagement Photography

Aly and Van's Seven Springs Engagement Photography session was such a fun way to spend the afternoon! The weather has been so crazy and unpredictable lately - spring in Pittsburgh -  that we decided to push up their engagement session for an earlier start time. I then got to spend the afternoon getting to know both Aly and Van, and they are seriously the cutest together! Van can make Aly laugh at anything, and well, he is super funny! However, you can totally see how much joy it brings him to make her laugh, and the love they have for each other is truly infectious! Throughout the whole session, Van had me laughing too!

We ventured to a few spots during their session, stopping by a small lake with a quaint dock, and hiking into the woods to a beautiful little waterfall! The weather held out for us, and we got some amazing light throughout the day, too! We ended the evening by relaxing on the deck of Seven Springs Resort, beer in hand, and I could not have had a more perfect afternoon with these two! I am so excited for their upcoming wedding this fall with the fabulous Shayne Sourelret! It is going to be an amazing event!

Lake Dillon Colorado Engagement Photography

Kevin and Bettina's Lake Dillon Colorado Engagement Photography Session was a dream! Talk about an amazing location for portraits, Lake Dillon is truly breathtaking. Kevin and Bettina live in Denver, Colorado but are getting married in Pittsburgh this year! This couple has so much chemistry, that it made my job so easy! Posing these two was a breeze and effortless. The way Kevin made Bettina laugh throughout our session was really adorable, and I am so looking forward to working with them again soon. Traveling out west is one of my favorite things to do - the views, location, sun, and warmth - will always have a special place in my heart! I am a born and raised California girl, and am always up for travel, so if you are looking to book a session out west, let's chat!

Fun fact, Bettina used to work with my cousin, and she had booked me as their wedding photographer without even knowing the connection! I recently was out in Denver shooting my cousin's engagement photos in Estes, which will be gracing the blog soon, and we had a good laugh about how it really is such a small world!

What an honor to photograph these Spring Family Portraits New Rochelle, New York for such dear friends for their little one's first birthday! Lisa and Zach are such a huge part of our lives, and we are forever grateful for their friendship. Zach is a Rabbi in New Rochelle, New York, and he also married me and my husband at our wedding this past November. Lisa is one of my best friends from college, and when she asked me to travel to New York to photograph their family, I, of course, said yes! I have absolutely loved seeing their family grow and being able to document these special moments for them is truly an honor. Friendships are truly amazing, I have seen Lisa and Zach get engaged, married, and now start a family of their own. They have seen the same growth with me and my husband, and I look forward to the many other life celebrations our families will share together.

I have been on the road quite a bit for work recently, and I love it! I am currently offering special packages for destination weddings and portraits, and I will travel near and far to tell your story! Upcoming travel to Virginia, Los Angeles, Boston, San Diego, Fiji, and New Zealand (dream destination)! Contact me now for dates and info!

Carly and Jeff's J Verno Studios winter wedding celebration was a stunning event! I loved getting to know Carly and Jeff during their engagement session at one of my favorite locations, the Walled Garden at Mellon Park. Carly and Jeff's chemistry is undeniable, and they could not be more perfect for each other! Jeff is the jokester who is laid back, and Carly is a rockstar mom who definitely runs the show! They compliment each other and their wedding day was nothing short of spectacular!

Even though you plan your wedding down to the minute, something inevitable will happen to throw a wrench in your perfectly made plan. That is why I always tell my brides to cushion their timelines so that you are prepared for the unexpected! On their wedding day, Jeff and his boys ended up taking the shuttle that was meant for Carly and her girls all the way out to their ceremony in Wexford! So the girls, after waiting for the shuttle to arrive - not realizing it already left with the guys - decided to take matters into their own hands. All of them piled into their cars and drove themselves to the ceremony!!

Although it was a minor mishap, we all made it to the church with only 5 minutes to spare! Carly and Jeff still laugh about it to this day, and thankfully everything else went off without a hitch! Thank you again to Carly and Jeff for trusting in me to capture their special day!! 

I am now booking engagements and weddings for the 2018 season! Please contact me today to schedule your phone consultation! I look forward to hearing from you!
