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!

Spring Family Portraits New Rochelle

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! I would love to connect with you to capture these life moments!

Mt. Washington & South Side Pittsburgh Engagement Photography

I absolutely loved this Mt. Washington & South Side Pittsburgh Engagement Photography Session with Lora and Jason! In honor of their wedding this coming weekend, I had to post about their engagement session that we worked on together last fall! Wow, how time flies! Jason and Lora have the cutest love story, they met back in college while working at the same restaurant on Mt. Washington, hence the location selection. Lora had her eye on Jason, but at the time, Jason though Lora was totally out of his league! Once they started talking and getting to know each other, Lora thought Jason was so funny, and of course, Jason thought Lora was beautiful. I mean, how could he not...her stunning eyes and gorgeous features! Jason is one lucky guy! As the summer turned into fall, the awkward banter turned into longer conversations, which lead to dating. Now I guess you can say the rest is history!! 

Jason and Lora, I am so excited and honored to be capturing your big day this weekend at the beautiful Rustic Acres Farms! Follow along on my Instagram for sneak peeks and behind the scenes of this gorgeous wedding! I know it is going to be stunning!

I am currently booking Engagements and Weddings for the 2018 season! Contact me now to schedule your consultation!

This elegant Black & White Kate Spade inspired bridal shower was a gorgeous and perfectly planned event, by the ever so talented Shayne Souleret. Shayne is so brilliant at what she does and is also a dear friend, so when she asked me to photograph her sister's bridal shower, I, of course, said yes!  I knew the details would be amazing, from the beautifully tied pink bow napkins to the gold candlesticks and silverware, everything was stunningly put together!

J VERNO STUDIOS WINTER WEDDING

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!

1920's INSPIRED WEDDING GRAND CONCOURSE

Where to even begin, this classically styled 1920's inspired wedding at the Grand Concourse was amazing on so many levels. Jeni and Paul are the sweetest most genuine couple and their love is so inspiring and truly infectious. When I first spoke to Jeni over the phone about her upcoming wedding, I just knew this day was going to be so wonderful and filled with love, but I had no idea that their special day would be seen and celebrated throughout the world. Jeni's story to the altar and how Arthur Thomas, the man who received Jeni's father's donated heart, walked her down the aisle, was covered by the news - including The New York Times, The Washington Post, BBC, ABC and many more. The attention that this wedding received was truly amazing, but the most important part of that entire day was that for Jeni and Paul it was the happiest day of their lives! You can read more about how Jeni and Paul met and their love story, over on Burgh Brides! Jeni and Paul, I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to capture such an incredible part of your journey together! It has been a whirlwind, and I am so honored to have worked with you both! 

I am currently booking weddings for the 2018 season, so contact me today to find out more information about my packages and services! I look forward to hearing from you!

FINE ART BRIDAL BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY

Bridal boudoir photography is not only a great gift for your future spouse, but it is also an amazing gift to yourself!! Using my photography, I try to capture and celebrate the art of being a woman. Truly feeling beautiful in your own skin throughout all the seasons of life. Sheena came to me as a bride-to-be, wanting to surprise her hubby on their wedding day with a beautiful keepsake album of boudoir images. Sheena looked absolutely stunning and totally rocked her session. We worked with the perfect poses to accentuate her curves and beautiful figure, showing off all her assets including her stunning eyes, and gorgeous hair!  

You don't only need to be a bride to step into my studio. I have worked with single ladies, expecting mothers, and moms of three!  Contact me today to schedule your boudoir session! Let me show you the goddess that you really are.

IN-HOME LIFESTYLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

This in-home lifestyle family photography session was a dream!! The Wedner's beautiful home was the perfect backdrop for their family photos, and the light coming into their bedroom was truly magical. Little Lily has grown up so fast, and I can't believe that she is already 1-year old! Not to mention she is a cutie and totally knows how to pose for the camera! I had so much fun photographing this session and making memories for their family. It was a nice change of pace doing the session indoors, as most of my sessions take place outside during golden hour.

When client's book me for portraits, I work with them on styling their session, choosing clothing options, and picking the perfect location that means the most to their family. Doing the session at home is a great way to create memories in that special space you share with your closest loved ones. 

I still have a few remaining summer session spots available for family portraits, so contact now to reserve your date!

THE CLUB AT NEVILLEWOOD WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

What a perfect day for a wedding at The Club at Nevillewood, it was a stunner! I adored working with Lauren and Jerry during their engagement session, and I was so excited to capture their big day at this beautiful venue. Lauren has amazing style, from her gorgeous Maggie Sotterro Dress to her fabulous Valentino shoes (I was in love), every detail was perfect. Not to mention the incredible team of vendors that worked so hard to bring their special day together. I might add, I was drooling over Lauren's bouquet, The Blue Daisy put together a masterpiece! 

Everything went off without a hitch, but I have to say my favorite moment of the day was when I snuck the bride and groom out for sunset portraits.  This, in my opinion, is one of the most important parts of the day. You finally are husband and wife, you are celebrating with all of your closest family and friends, but once the ceremony is over, you are nonstop until the end of the night. I love taking my couples out for some time alone, where they can enjoy each other and a brief moment together on their special day! Because it does fly by so quickly!

Sunset is also the BEST time for photos, and I mean the best. Just look at that dreamy light that we had! I highly encourage all my couples to prioritize time for portraits at sunset on their wedding day. Just a moment together to create images that you will remember forever. Thank you, Lauren and Jerry, for letting me be there to capture it all for you! It was an honor!
