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!

Linden Hall Wedding

This beautiful and elegant Linden Hall Wedding was truly a wonderful event! I was so excited to photograph Mark and Jillian's wedding, especially after their epic engagement session photos! These two have traveled the world together and their love story could not have been more perfect. Jillian and Mark met 5 years ago in Pittsburgh after Jillian had recently moved back from Texas, and Mark was on location for Cirque du Soleil - Totem. A friend of Jillian's who was dating Mark's co-worker from Cirque, invited everyone out for drinks at a local dive bar. Mark, being the sweet natured Englishman, Charmed his was into Jillian's heart, and since that night, they have been inseparable. 

The beginning of their relationship was challenging. Mark was on tour, traveling to different countries and cities every 6 weeks. Jillian flew to see Mark every chance she got. They both loved it. The fleeting moments, the romance, dating in a different city every time they saw each other. But they both wanted more. Mark asked Jillian to quit her job to go travel with him full time...seriously this story does not get any more romantic! Jillian took the leap and joined Mark on the road, making a decision that changed both of their lives for the better.  Jillian and Mark have had so many adventures, and now that they are married, they can forever discover the rest of the world together.

France

Provence, French Riviera, Nice, Monaco...these are just some of the places we visited on our tour of the South of France two summers ago! My fiancé and I attended my cousin's wedding at the beautiful Le Mas des Oules located just outside the quaint little town of Uzès, France. We traveled there with my brother and his girlfriend, exploring the medieval towns and cities that are nestled around the rolling French country side. France is beautiful and life is so simple. Stores and restaurants close mid afternoon and don't re-open until the evening, where wining and dining continues until the early hours of the morning. The light breeze is welcoming, and of course the architecture and surrounding beauty is breathtaking. While there, we rented a car, which made travel around Provence a lot more convenient. However, the drivers there are crazy! So be careful! After spending a few days in Uzès, we traveled to Nice and then Monaco, where we walked the designer clad streets, stopped by the Hotel Monte Carlo, and dined al fresco. Oh, how I can't wait to go back!

Planning our trip to France was so much fun, and I can't wait for our next European adventure! If you know of anyone looking for a destination wedding photographer, please send them my way! I love to travel! I currently give discounts on destination weddings, and will create a custom package perfect for your needs. You can contact me directly for a quote!
