Kateri & Patrick || A Joyful Urban Proposal

October 28, 2020

Way back near the beginning of September, I got a DM from Patrick asking if I thought it would be possible to photograph his proposal later on in the fall. Not a lot of people know this, but I have been secretly wanting to photograph a proposal for years so needless to say, I was […]

Tessa & Zack were married on a beautiful, rainy October day at the Shrine of St. Anthony in Ellicott City MD.

Patricia & Mike || LeMont Pittsburgh Wedding

September 24, 2020

Patricia and Mike were married last Saturday on a GLORIOUS fall day. It was literally the perfect September wedding – mid 60s and sunny with a gentle breeze that did wonders with Patricia’s veil. Patricia is one of my household sisters from my time at FUS and it was a joy to see her again […]

Lauren & Cody || Downtown Pittsburg Engagement Session

September 23, 2020

About a month ago I was able to meet Lauren and Cody in downtown Pittsburgh for their engagement session. As I drove to our meeting spot, the formerly sunny skies turned dark and the heavens opened into a torrential downpour. According to the radar this sudden summer storm was supposed to pass as quickly as […]

Catherine & Tom || Iron Lakes Country Club Wedding

September 18, 2020

This past weekend’s wedding was such a joy to photograph! Every wedding this year has been effected by Covid, but Catherine is Canadian and so there was an added layer of stress and uncertainty revolving the Canadian/American border. There were so many things up in the air in the weeks leading up to this wedding. […]

A few months ago I stopped in Cincinnati on my way to a wedding in Indiana and I was able to photograph Samantha & Clay’s engagement session. Although we all went to FUS together, we didn’t really know each and so their engagement session was the first time we were able to hang out and […]

Back in March, as everything was shutting down and government mandates were changing every day, Brooke & Scott were closely monitoring everything and hoping and praying that their April wedding would be unaffected.

I have been looking forward to Cara & Kenny’s wedding for awhile because Cara and I were friends while at FUS and worked in women’s ministry together for several years.
