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!

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!

San Francisco, CA

A few months ago I took a quick trip to visit my college roommate in San Francisco, CA. Ahra and I met our first week at PIT and have been inseparable ever since! It was a sad day when Ahra moved across the country to the West Coast. But, now I have an excuse to travel!

Ahra was an amazing tour guide, barely letting me rest the entire time I was there. During my three day trip, we toured Alcatraz, ventured into downtown San Francisco and walked around the Embarcadero. We also drove up to Half Moon Bay, eating at some amazing restaurants and cafes along the way. 

On my final day in the city, we met up with some friends from Pittsburgh for brunch, which included an impromptu mini family session! San Francisco is such a fun and vibrant city, even though we were non-stop for three days I still feel like there was so much that I had yet to see and explore! I can’t wait for my next trip back to the West Coast. I was born and raised in Southern California, and even though I call Pittsburgh my home, I will always be a California girl at heart.
