Rebecca & Daniel || Holy Rosary Steubenville Catholic Wedding

May 6, 2024

On a warm sunny day near the end of April, Rebecca and Daniel entered into the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony. Their wedding was extra special for me because the church they were married in, Holy Rosary, is my home parish here in Steubenville! Our original plan for their photos was to go down to the […]

Abby & Sam || Colorful Spring Columbus Wedding

April 29, 2024

Goodness, where do I start with this wedding?? Abby & Sam are two of the sweetest people and their wedding was such a joy-filled, Christ-centered day! When I did my 10-year wedding giveaway last December, I truly wanted God to show me which couple he wanted me to give the free wedding to. As I […]

Mary & Gabriel || Early Spring Racoon Creek Engagement Session

April 9, 2024

Mary & Gabriel’s romantic engagement session at Raccoon Creek State Park was the perfect place for an early spring session! We started with a short hike to Franklin Mineral Springs where a small waterfall and rocky cliff walls make for some rather epic photos. From there we drove a short distance to get to the […]

Emily & Joshua || A Holy Guardian Angels Parish Wedding

February 22, 2024

Emily and Joshua’s winter wedding in Reading, Pennsylvania was so beautiful and joyful! These two were peaceful, and radiantly happy all day and it was such an honor to capture their wedding! (If they look familiar it might be because you just saw their engagement session blog I shared a few weeks ago!) Their wedding […]

Classy Studio Engagement Session || Abby & Sam

February 14, 2024

When Abby and Sam mentioned that they were interested in renting a studio for their winter engagement session, I was very excited! I have never shot in a studio before but I’ve seen more and more natural light studio sessions popping up all over so I was more than happy to finally get to try […]

Yellowstone Highlights Part One

February 7, 2024

Last June, I photographed a wedding in Cody, Wyoming and I made a trip out of it with my friend Katie and we spent some extra days exploring Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Our first full day was mostly taken up exploring Grand Teton National Park (see that blog post here) but […]

Downtown Steubenville Winter Engagement Session || Emily & Joshua

February 1, 2024

These two are getting married in just 9 days so it feels fitting to share their downtown Steubenville engagement session! We didn’t intentionally go for the small-town Hallmark movie vibes but that’s totally what we ended up with and I’m not mad about it at all. And I know I’m a little biased, but I […]

Highlights of Grand Teton National Park

January 26, 2024

Last June, I had the opportunity to travel to Wyoming (and Montana and Idaho) and cross a few new states off my bucket list! I had a wedding in Cody, Wyoming (check it out here if you missed it!) and I convinced my friend, Katie, to come with me and spend a few days before […]

Joni & Noah || Winter Wedding at Old St. Patrick’s Pittsburgh

January 18, 2024

My first wedding of 2024 could not have been more beautiful! You might remember Joni & Noah from their swoon-worthy engagement session a few months ago. We had such a good time during their engagement session and I’ve been looking forward to their day ever since. These two have one of the most beautiful love […]

December 1, 2023

It’s hard to believe I’m sharing my final 2023 wedding! This year has flown by and I’m so grateful for everything it has held! Colleen & Stephen were the perfect couple to end my 2023 wedding season and despite their mid-November wedding date, the trees were still full of gorgeous colors! These two met at […]

Near the end of October, I found myself in Michigan for my very first Michigan wedding. The colors were at peak beauty, the sun was shining, and the day was overall quite glorious. Sarah and Jacob actually met at a wedding a few years ago and their love story has God’s hand written all over […]

Joni & Noah || Sunrise Forest Engagement Session

November 9, 2023

You guys. This engagement session was absolutely amazing. Seriously. First of all, we had the most dreamy sunrise golden hour light. Listen, I’m a huge fan of sunset golden hour, however, there is something different and more ethereal about the sunrise golden hour. It’s usually less intense, more gentle, and honestly just so dang romantic. […]

Liz & Kris || Cozy Pen Ryn Mansion Library Wedding

November 3, 2023

When two librarian book lovers get married, there has to be a library involved somehow, and if you are extra creative, the Dewey Decimal System makes the perfect unique seating chart. Which is precisely what Liz and Kris did. Liz and Kris met while working at the Library of Congress in DC and share a […]
