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!

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!

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!

Lisa and Justin's beautiful Lenape Heights Golf Resort Wedding was such a special event! Lisa and Justin have known each other since grade school, growing up in the same small town and attending the same church every Sunday. 

From the Groom -

"We grew up in the same small town, but our lives took different paths. After grade school, we never were in the same school nor talked to each other much. However, we would always see each other on Sundays, since our families went to the same church. It's funny looking back on it now, and how she always caught my eye.

We went to different colleges, but they were still only 20 minutes apart. This lead to a couple of chance encounters in Morgantown where we got to hang out and have a few good laughs together. After college, we both moved home. That is when it all began. We started to talk more, and eventually went out on a couple dates. In June of 2010, we went to our first Pirate's game and the rest has been history.

After that day, we enjoyed every second together and had endless laughs. From watching her brother play football to rescuing a litter of kittens, I fell over and over for her compassionate and caring soul. In 2012, we made a jump and moved to Pittsburgh to start a new path together. I started a new job, and she went back to school. We were both busy with school and work, but always made time for each other.

After a few years in Pittsburgh, we realized there was so much to do here that we need to make a Pittsburgh bucket list. A few things topped the list: the incline and skating at PPG Place. As we talked about it, I could image the night. First, we would go to where it all began; a Pirate's game. After the Pirate's game, we would go to the Duquesne Incline. On the way back down the Incline, I asked her what other things on the bucket list she wanted to do. This is when the next chapter started. I told her I had another thing on my bucket list, and that's when I popped the question. I always knew she was the one, and I'm so grateful to get to spend the rest of my life with this beautiful girl."

These two are just so perfect for each other! You can see more of their beautiful engagement session HERE, as well.

Carly and Jeff's Mellon Park romantic engagement photography session was a dream! These two are a perfect fit for each other! Jeff's fun-loving personality and charm was totally contagious! Jeff joked and laughed during the entire session, making Carly feel relaxed and at ease. I could tell why Carly fell head over heels for him! Their chemistry was undeniable, and you better believe that makes for amazing photos!

We had our session at one of my favorite locations in the city, The Walled Garden at Mellon Park, and after rescheduling a few times due to the crazy and unpredictable Pittsburgh weather - it seriously rained so much, but we finally got the perfect summer day! Carly and Jeff totally rocked their session, and I love their style as a couple! Fashion choices for your engagement session are so important to get the look you want in your photos! I work with all my clients, giving them style tips while making sure they look and feel their best during our session!

I am so excited to share this blog post with you, and even more excited to share their beautiful winter wedding this past December at Jay Verno.

Now booking engagements and weddings for the 2017 and 2018 season! Please contact me today to schedule your phone consultation! I look forward to hearing from you!

Lately, I have not been able to take on many family photography sessions due to my heavy wedding workload this year. So, when the Williams family came to me needing photos for their holiday cards, it was perfect timing! I had just finished wrapping up a few weddings as my season was winding down, so it was fate that their inquiry came in when it did. I absolutely love photographing family sessions - slowing down, pausing, and capturing life as it is for your family in that moment - snapping an image to create a memory that will last forever. It is why I continue to do what I do, loving every minute of it! 

The Williams family could not have been more amazing to work with! Kimber had every detail planned out, down to their amazing outfits, beautiful fur throw blanket, and her daughter's ADORABLE shoes! Also...did I mention they brought their puppies??!! Everything is better with puppies!! It was so cold out during our session but these three rocked it, making it seem like it was a warm fall day. Hartwood Acres is one of my favorite spots, and capturing the last hints of fall on a beautiful Pittsburgh day - it truly could not have been more perfect!

Interested in booking a spring family session? I am now taking limited inquiries for spring 2017! Contact me now for more details and availability!

In honor of Lauren and Jerry's wedding this weekend, I just HAD to post about their beautiful Treesdale Golf and Country Club Engagement Photography Session! Lauren's family home is in Gibsonia right near the Treesdale Golf Club, which was the perfect setting for their e-session, and not to mention we had a perfect day as well! The golf course was truly a magnificent backdrop for these images, designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, it's truly beautiful location. I am so unbelievably excited and honored to capture Lauren and Jerry's special day! These two have so much love for each other, and their chemistry is undeniable. 

I can't believe that we are nearing the end of wedding season already! October is one of my busiest months, and I am already starting to book up for next year!
