Owen is 1 — First Birthday Portraits — Indiana County Photographer

Everyone wish this sweet little peanut a happy first year of life! Just look at those big baby blues – what a handsome guy! We took Own’s 1st year portraits at his great-aunt’s house in Avonmore, PA.
The gazebo was the perfect cover for the light rain showers that were lingering. Owen was such a little trooper considering a few days before it was nearly 80 degrees and today it was chilly in the 50’s! Owen is all boy – I loved how he threw his letters each time we set them up. They’re just toys, right?:) Happy birthday, sweet boy!

Rita is 3 and Cora is 1 — Children and Family Portraits — Bridgewater Crossing

I just love growing with this family! I have had the pleasure and honor of photographing them since Min’s maternity session when it was just the two of them. And now they are a family of 4!

While we make each session unique, we like to incorporate a few portraits in the same location and with similar props/outfits for comparison. We’ve gone back to Bridgewater Crossing in front of the big train bridge on the girls 1st birthdays each year:

We have many examples of this — I could make an entire blog about it! But for now, let’s take a look at Rita and Cora celebrating their 3rd and 1st years of life!

Heidi + Brandon — Mansion at Linden Hall Wedding

After my fair share of rustic weddings this summer, I was blown away with the amazing venue that is Mansion at Linden Hall! I seriously couldn’t ask for a better backdrop to a wedding!

The Mansion has so many opportunities for details and beautiful light, I was in heaven! Even though the rain and cold moved their ceremony from the garden inside, Heidi’s grand entrance on the grand staircase completely made up for that! We took portraits outside on the grounds surrounding the Mansion, as well as a few places inside as well. The reception was held in a tent just off the hotel at the bottom of the hill and it was one rockin’ party! Best wishes to Heidi and Brandon!

Karissa + Brandon — Small Wedding — Westmoreland County Wedding Photographer

Karissa and Brandon knew going into their big day that they would rather spend their money on an amazing honeymoon, not a big extravagant wedding, so when their big day came, they kept it small and intimate with a private outdoor ceremony behind their church, New Life Presbyterian Church in Harrison City, PA and their reception in the church’s social hall.

Chris + Bethany — Vandergrift Wedding — Apollo, PA Photographer

The first time I met Bethany was at my own wedding over 5 years ago. Chris, my brother, brought her as a guest, and although I didn’t get to spend a lot of time getting to know her that night, when I later looked back at the pictures, her warm smile amid the chaos of my wedding told me she was a sweet girl and we’d keep her. 🙂

The more I’ve grown to know her over the years, the more I become convinced that she is the perfect match for my brother and I couldn’t be more excited to call her a sister. Now go make babies. J/k 🙂 Continue reading → Chris + Bethany — Vandergrift Wedding — Apollo, PA Photographer

Lauren + Josh Wedding — Apollo, PA — Indiana, PA

“The pictures are a mix of lovey and silly, which is exactly how I felt the day was.”

This was the reaction of the bride, Lauren, when I shared these pics with her. There is no greater compliment than when a client sees and feels the story you were trying to tell. Awesome!

Lauren and Josh were married on June 8 in Apollo, PA and had their reception at the Rustic Lodge in Indiana, PA. We ventured out to Thomas Covered Bridge and Blue Spruce Park for their portraits. Continue reading → Lauren + Josh Wedding — Apollo, PA — Indiana, PA
