Brianna & Tim || Golden Yellow & Blush Wildflower Wedding

August 9, 2022

If you pause and envision a summer wildflower wedding with golden yellows and blush tones, delicate floral lace, a beautiful flower crown, warm sunshine, little ones running around in the grass, lots of laughter and good conversations, and a beaming bride and groom, you will have just pictured Brianna & Tim’s wedding. Brianna & Tim’s […]

Maria & Bence || Elegant Cultural Wedding at Lost Mission

July 20, 2022

This blog post is LONG overdue but hopefully so worth the wait! At the beginning of July, I flew down to the great state of Texas (for the first time which was so fun) to photograph Maria & Bence’s wedding at the Lost Mission in the Texas Hill Country just outside of San Antonio. As […]

Priscilla & William || Elegant New England Summer Wedding

July 9, 2022

I first met Priscilla and William for their engagement session last September. I was instantly struck by how sweet and genuine these two are. They met through Catholic Match and quickly fell for one another and were soon frequently making trips between CT and Ohio to visit one another. And finally, after waiting and praying […]

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

July 1, 2022

On an unusually chilly Saturday in June, Megan walked down the aisle of her home parish, Immaculate Conception, with one arm on her father and her other arm holding on to her brightly colored bouquet. Her shoes somehow perfectly matched her flowers and trailing behind her was an exquisite cathedral veil. At the end of […]

Julia & Aidan || European Inspired Wedding at Monte Ventoso

June 22, 2022

Where do I begin with this wedding and this couple? Julia and Aidan both met as college freshman at Franciscan University and their friendship quickly turned into love. In her toast, Julia’s sister shared how she knew Aidan might be the one because he made Julia laugh more than she ever had before and that […]

Danielle & Max || Melkite Greek Catholic Wedding

June 18, 2022

When Danielle & Max reached out to me and asked if I was willing to photograph their Melkite Greek Catholic Wedding, I immediately said yes. I love learning about and photographing other traditions and it has been years since I last photographed an Eastern Catholic wedding.  In a Melkite Greek Catholic wedding, there are actually […]

Christina & Kevin || Elegant Burgundy & Gold Country Club Wedding

June 5, 2022

“To love another person is to see the face of God.” This quote by Victor Hugo seems to perfectly sum up Christina and Kevin’s beautiful wedding day. From the moment we walked in the door of Christina’s childhood home, to the moment we waved them goodbye at the end of the night, there was just […]

Carissa & David || Pine Barn Inn Spring Wedding

May 28, 2022

Last weekend on one of the hottest May days, Carissa and David became husband and wife. A record high heat wave (for May) decided to blow through the north eastern side of the US and we had temps soaring over 95 degrees on Saturday. Despite the heat (and the fact that Carissa and David specifically […]

Bry & Brandon || Tropical Florida Destination Wedding

May 20, 2022

You guys, this wedding was SO SO special and beautiful for a number of reasons! Firstly, it was just objectively beautiful: I’ve photographed a number of weddings in Florida at this point but this was the first one that was truly tropical and everything from the invitations, flowers, wedding attire, colors, and photo locations fit […]

On the last weekend of April, Katie and Sean had a true fairy tale wedding: complete with a sparkling ballgown, dozens of candles, crystal glasses, and a knight in shining armor. Katie & Sean were married at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Wheeling with their reception at Oglebay Resort. Alaina from Soiree by Souleret was […]

This elegant spring wedding a week after Easter was such a joyful celebration! Nichole and Daniel are both such kind and wonderful people and I know I say this every time, but it really was such a joy to work with them! We started the day off with the boys. Daniel and his crew have […]

Caitlin & Lucas || Southern MD Spring Wedding

April 1, 2022

In almost a decade of shooting weddings, I have never experienced such a crazy variety in weather on one wedding day as we did last weekend. In the course of nine hours, we had wind, rain, sleet, snow, hail, a thunderstorm, partially cloudy skies, full cloudy skies, and then a beautiful sunset with rich pink […]

This particular Cathedral Basilica has been a special part of Bonnie and Evan’s love story […]

Della & Patrick || Mint Green & Silver Winter Wedding

March 7, 2022

Gorgeous golden sunlight, the most perfect floral lace wedding dress, and two sweet souls vowing to spend the rest of their lives together. That is the best way I can describe Della & Patrick’s wedding! Della and Patrick’s story actually starts years ago when they were just kids living on the West Coast. Their parents […]

Lauren & Jacob || Harrisburg, PA Winter Wedding

February 25, 2022

Classy, genuine, and just plain fun are the best words I can think of to describe Lauren and Jacob and their winter wedding last weekend. I actually had not had a chance to meet these two before their wedding but they were both so calm and wonderful all day and it felt like we had […]
