Tamra & Chad: The Grand Estate at Hidden Acres Wedding Photos

Chad and Tamra’s summer pink and navy wedding took place at the Grand Estate at Hidden Acres on one of the most beautiful, summer July days! These two Office loving, dog parents had one of the most FUN wedding days we’ve seen from beginning to end!

Some of my favorite details included some subtle Office details - like the signature drinks, named after two main characters in the show, Jim & Pam - and the entrance into their reception, which was taken from Jim & Pam’s wedding (in the show)! Not to mention the beautiful invitation suite & signage, designed by the groom himself!

Chad and Tamra, it was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day! I hope these photos serve you well for many years to come! 💛

Thomas is a soon-to-be senior (this fall!) who plays basketball and soccer, and loves Ichiban! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Thomas and his family a few times over the years, so taking his senior photos was such an honor! Congratulations on your last year of school, Thomas! 🎉

How absolutely gorgeous is Erin?! She's a lover of Stranger Things, cheesecake, and Moe's, an outfit coordinating extraordinaire, and a soon to be senior this fall at Butler! And we had the most perfect evening for her senior portraits - bright and beautiful, with just a little breeze in the air! Congratulations on your senior year, Erin!! 💛

Reva & Alex: Succop Nature Park Wedding Photos

Reva and Alex’s wedding day took place at Succop Nature Park, one of my favorite outdoor venues north of Pittsburgh! They came all the way from Philadelphia to celebrate this new chapter of their lives with their friends and family!

Everyone was watching the forecast the day of Reva and Alex’s wedding. With almost everything planned to take place outside (aside from the reception under a pavillion!), Reva, her four sisters, and her soon to be sister-in-law paced around the bridal suite, watching the forecast, hoping things would change so Reva and Alex could have their dream outdoor ceremony.

After seeing a break in the rain coming 45 minutes after the ceremony was set to begin, Reva and Alex’s incredible planner from Your Big Day made the call to wait it out to see if there would be a break in the weather. And low and behold - there was!!! And we ended up having just enough time for an outdoor ceremony and for some photos before the rain began again. (Side note: this is why wedding planners are worth every penny!!!)

But the rain? It didn’t put a damper on the wedding day, and it surely didn’t put a damper on Reva and Alex’s excitement! The newly married couple radiated joy, even through the rain. Congratulations on your wedding day, Reva and Alex! 🎉

Eric G: Hartwood Acres Senior Photos

Eric is an Eden Christian Academy senior, graduating in 2020. He plays basketball and runs cross country (and comes from a big family of runners!). I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Eric’s family for quite a few years, and even photographed his sister Lauren for her senior photos almost four years ago! It’s hard to believe that it’s been so long!

I also had the pleasure of photographing Eric with his entire family at the very beginning of our time together! Senior photos are the perfect time to update your family portrait - if you're interested in adding a family "mini" session to an already booked senior session, just let me know!

Congratulations on your senior year, Eric! 🎉 You are going to do great things!

I had the immense honor of taking photos of Aidan just a few short weeks ago beginning at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, and ending in his family’s backyard! Aidan is a Seneca Valley senior who plans on playing hockey professionally. With numerous accolades and many big opportunities, it's easy to see that this guy is going places!

Aidan, thanks so much for the honor of taking these photos for you! And a big thanks to the Sports Complex for being so accommodating for our session! ☺️

Alyssa & Billy: Bella Sera Wedding Photos

Alyssa and Billy met on the University of Pittburgh’s campus in January of 2014, and during a trip to Vegas in November of 2017, Billy asked Alyssa to spend the rest of her life with him - and in June of 2019, they finally said “I do” on one of the most beautiful Pittsburgh days!

From the very first phone call I had with Alyssa, I knew these two were an incredible pair. Both Alyssa and Billy are the type of people who you immediately feel comfortable with - you know, the ones that are so kind and who go out of their way to make sure everyone around them feels like an old friend! So, as you can imagine, their wedding day was a dream! Their friends and family made us feel like a part of the family, and we had the pleasure of working with an incredible vendor team that kept the whole day running ahead of schedule (which is no easy feat on a wedding day!).

Alyssa and Billy, it was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day. Wishing you two all of the very best as you start your married lives together! 💛

Julie & John: Succop Nature Park Engagement Photos

Julie and John are an incredibly sweet couple who are SO easy to be around! Their session took place on a sunny Pittsburgh day at Succop Nature Park in Butler, PA. The day of their session ended up being one of the only days for the entire WEEK that it didn’t rain (hallelujah!!), and we spent much of our time chatting about our favorite restaurants, including a favorite across the board of Burghers in Zelienople, PA - right down the street from my house!

Julie and John’s first date took place on Cinco de Mayo 2016 at Saga, and in March of 2019, John popped the question right before Julie left for a trip to Florida. He surprised her by saying that he had “bought her something new” to wear while she was on her trip, and, to her surprise, that thing was an engagement ring!

These two are something special, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of their wedding day next year! Congratulations on your engagement, Julie and John! 💛
