Sandra & Mike

Congratulations to Sandra and Mike, they kicked off my Autumn season with an absolutely beautiful day followed by a great reception at the Mayernick Center. (I have shot at the Mayernick Center several time this year, and they always do an awesome job with everything, and Lisa the coordinator is incredibly wonderful.) I also love the colors of everything that Sandra choose for her wedding. And not only does this girl have great tastes, she is also one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. When I arrived for her getting ready shots, she made me feel so welcome and was asking me all about my family and life, on HER day. She is truly beautiful, inside and out, and Sandra and Mike just make a perfect couple. You can see more HERE in their slideshow! I had a great time with you both!


Holy crap, I LOVE this one. When I staked out their church I noticed how in one of the hallways the stained glass was spilling colored light onto the floor. I couldn't wait until after the ceremony to get Sandra and her dress in there.

I love what my fisheye can do.

And I love to get shadow shots when possible.

What an adorable couple.

Sandra's dress was awesome, every time I fluffed it, it held the air and stayed poufed for a few minutes.

Sandra mentioned she liked Sepia images, so I did some for her.

I missed my sun shot, it kept going in the clouds, but I like the lighting on this one.

I love when my couples have FUN!

Sandra & Mike's nephews, look at their big blue eyes!

Kristen & Nick

Congratulations to Kristen & Nick who tied the knot on Sept. 21st. I do have to say this was the most challenging wedding I have shot so far, because it was nightime and all of our shots were taken in the dark. Not to mention Heinz Chapel doesn't permit the use of flash and I had no sunlight coming though the windows to help. Yikes, and if you know anything about photography, then you know the importance of good light. But I was up for the challenge. So after a 7:30 ceremony at Heniz, we walked around Pitt's campus in the dark and got some shots. I'm not going to do a slideshow at this time because Kristen is surprising her family with pictures, but I do want to post some shots here for the blog readers. And a big thank you to Kristen and Nick, even though it was dark, your day, or should I say night, was beautiful. Thank you for having me!

Getting ready, isn't Kristen a beauty?

The chapel lit up, truly beautiful.

I always have the thank you boards on hand for my couples if they want this particular picture.

Martha & Ray

Congratulations to Martha and Ray on their wedding! I had a ton of fun with them and it was another perfect day, what more can I say. Martha and Ray also have 2 beautiful daughters, so I had 4 very important people to capture, and got some great shots of everyone. You can see more in their slideshow HERE. You guys make such a beautiful family, congrats again and thank you for having me!

I don't believe I need a caption here, and I normally wouldn't post a picture of my bride's undies, but this was too good. =)

Beautiful bride (and hot mama!)

Ray and his guys.

I love when the church is designed to let me get some shots from the front.

It wouldn't be a wedding by yours truly without some sun and flare.

Ray dancing with his daughter, Martha is in the background with happy tears. I was in tears myself, this was just one of those moments.

Too cute.

Danielle & Keith

Congratulations to Danielle and Keith. They had a beautiful wedding at the Priory which I was thrilled to be a part of. Everything about their day was gorgeous and perfect, you could really tell how much time and effort was put into every detail, Danielle obviously has great taste. And they make a great couple, you guys are made for each other! Congrats again and click HERE for their slideshow!

Danielle is just a classic beauty.

And the groom.

The cake was so elegant, didn't I say Danielle has great taste?!

The Priory is unbelievable inside.

I'll end with probably my favorite. This image just screams romance, I love the moment right before the kiss.

Happy 1st Birthday Ella!

My girl turned the big 1 today! It has been an amazing year, and I am so thankful to have this little person in our family. I love watching her grow and she continues to amaze me every day. Ella also shares this day with my husband, hey that's one less cake I have to buy every year, lol. So Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband also. I love you both so much.

Exactly one year ago today, a few hours after birth.
