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!

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!

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!
