Karissa + Brandon — Engagement Portraits — Rock Furnace Trail — Apollo, PA Photographer

I have lived just outside of Apollo for almost 5 years now and I’ve never heard of the Rock Furnace Trail – what a treasure! (yes, I said “treasure”…it truly is awesome!). Beautiful wooded trails and THREE waterfalls! We only ventured to the first of the three for my session with Karissa and Brandon…something about carrying 20 pounds of gear on uneven rocky trails near water…and me being a tiny bit clumsy…yeah, best to play it safe!:)

Karissa and Brandon love the outdoors. In fact, Brandon popped the question on the Rock Furnace trail (on the green bridge you’ll see below to be exact), so the trail is not only a great backdrop, but holds a lot of meaning to the two of them. Aren’t they super-sweet?!

Kim + Chris — Seven Oaks Country Club — Beaver County PA Photographer — Part 3

All I gotta say is this reception was way TOO fun! There were so many crazy dance moves going on at Kim and Chris’s wedding at Seven Oaks Country Club, I had a hard time picking the best ones to show you! When you and your DJ work together to pick the music, the dance floor will be rockin’ all night all!:)

Kim + Chris — Seven Oaks Country Club Wedding — Beaver County PA Photographer — Part 2

I love fall weddings because the light is SO amazing! We took the group pictures on the golf course at Seven Oaks Country Club – the site of the ceremony and reception. And then, my second shooter and I kidnapped Kim and Chris for a quick minute and drove them to this beautiful blue-ish gray church down the road from the country club. Chris joked that Kim had it planned all along since the door of the church perfectly matched her dress.:) Either way, I LOVE the images we got at the church!

Kim + Chris — Seven Oaks Country Club Wedding — Beaver County PA Photographer — Part 1

Kim and Chris are the sweetest two people you’ll ever meet and I felt so honored to be a part of their big day. So much love from everyone involved, it truly was a beautiful wedding. They had their ceremony and reception at Seven Oaks Country Club in Brighton Township, PA. While it’s fun to cruise around in a limo, having everyone at one location makes things so much easier and you have way more time for pictures.

In part 1, you’ll see highlights of Kim and Chris getting ready and their ceremony.

Jackie’s Birthday Gift – Family Portraits – Indiana County Photographer

Met the Greene family at their home in Marion Center for family pictures Saturday night. Jackie’s husband, Jim, is a mason just like my husband, and he built their beautiful home and with its location in the woods, we had a nice backdrop for the pictures. It was Jackie’s birthday and her daughters surprised her with a family portrait session. The weather was not looking good, but we beat the rain and with a little help from off camera lighting, we created our own sun. Happy Birthday, Jackie!

Jordan – Newborn Portraits – Greensburg, PA

I recently got to spend a few hours with sweet newborn Jordan. I just love newborns and wished I could have just cuddled the little guy the entire time. It wouldn’t be weird if I did all selfies with him, would it?:) A quick comment on my newborn photography: I prefer more of the style you see below. I’ll do the “baby in a bucket” or whatever you think you like on Pinterest, but capturing the tiny details and glimpses (like Jordan’s one-eye glare at me…haha!) in my opinion, will be a better reminder of what these little angels are like in their first few days. God bless little Jordan!

Sara + Jason – Duquesne Chapel and Power Ballroom Wedding – 2nd Shooter – Pittsburgh, PA

Last weekend, I assisted my very pregnant photographer friend, Allison of Allison Viron Photography as a second shooter at Sara and Jason’s wedding in Pittsburgh, PA. The wedding was held in the Duquesne Chapel, we took portraits at the North Shore (minutes before a HUGE rain storm!!), and the reception was at the Duquesne Power Ballroom. I love second shooting because it gives me a chance to really concentrate on details…another reason you should consider hiring a second shooter!:) Even though I got drenched running (yes, running) from the limo bus to the sky bridge (twice!) with our photo gear, it was a great night! The city views in the Power Ballroom were phenomenal!

Luke and Christina – Engagement Portraits – Brady’s Run Park – Beaver, PA

It was such a pleasure taking Luke and Christina’s engagement pictures! We had a beautiful evening – great light, not too humid, and Brady’s Run Park offered a great backdrop for the pictures. Check out the ducks doing a photo bomb as we were getting some pics at the boat launch! And Christina’s blue eyes – stunning! Looking forward to photographing their big day in November!
