Teresa & Andrew || Dreamy October Engagement Session at Raccoon Creek

November 11, 2022

When Teresa and Andrew started talking to me about what they were hoping for their engagement session, they both said that their ideal location was a very outdoorsy/wooded area during peak fall colors. I suggested Raccoon Creek State Park, which was halfway between us and always a stunning location choice in the fall. I’ve shot […]

Dakota said as soon as she found my Instagram account, she knew she had to have me photograph her wedding, and as soon as I saw all the colors and details for her wedding, it was clear why! We have a very similar love for natural elements and earthy tones and her and John’s style […]

When Brittany first reached out to me earlier this year and told me her wedding was in Youngstown, Ohio at Stambaugh Auditorium, I was super excited.

Megan & Zach || Wildflowers & Marian Inspired East Coast Wedding
