Taylor & Vaughan || Cleveland Art Museum Wedding

January 13, 2022

I have been so excited to share this wedding with you all! From beginning to end this was a magical winter wedding.

Olivia & Joe || Clark Plantation Wedding

January 5, 2022

The weekend before Christmas, I flew down to Florida for Olivia & Joe’s wedding (also managed to photograph three different engagement sessions in three different cities while on this trip haha). Everything about this day was a delight to be a part of and photograph! I have done several southern weddings now, but I’ve never […]

Rachel & Chris || Blue Valley Vineyard & Winery Wedding

December 18, 2021

Rachel and Chris were married on a blustering winter day in Northern Virginia and it was absolutely beautiful from beginning to end. I loved getting to know these two and their families and it was an honor to capture their day. Two of my favorite moments of the morning were when Rachel took a quiet […]

Marty & Shane || Yonah Mountains Vineyard December Wedding

December 10, 2021

This wedding was a wonderful way to kick of my last month of 2021 weddings! Marty and Shane were married in Cleveland GA on a sunny and 70degree day. Coming from Ohio, this weather was amazing for a December wedding. The leaves were gone, but we still had a magical time for their first look […]

Catherine & Isaac || Old Hickory Golf Club Wedding

November 15, 2021

On the last Saturday of October, Catherine & Isaac were married. Every part of the day was centered on love and family. Rich shades of red & dark navy, the elegant flowers, Catherine’s vintage dress (which she found at a second-hand shop and then altered the top herself – wow!), and the exploding fall colors […]

Caroline & Mike || Mathre1916 Illinois Wedding

November 6, 2021

Caroline & Mike’s dusty blue and burnt orange October wedding was a dream to photograph! Not only are they two of the nices people (and so are their family and friends), but there were so many sweet moments I got to capture with my lens. I have been looking forward to this wedding ever since […]

Julie & Peter || Dusty Rose & Terracotta October Wedding

October 26, 2021

Y’all I might be sounding like a broken record with all these fall weddings, but each one is just SO good and I get so excited every time I’m ready to share a new one! Julie & Peter’s day was no exception. Julie and I were next-door neighbors our freshman year of college at Franciscan […]

Maria & Patrick || Cold Saturday Farm Wedding

October 20, 2021

Maria and Patrick’s wedding day was straight out of a fairytale, or better yet a Taylor Swift music video (this wedding gives me strong “Love Story or Enchanted” vibes. Totally random tangent, but does anyone else remember when it was a big thing to make music videos out of movie clips and put them to […]

Ellie & Pete || Old York Road Country Club Wedding

October 18, 2021

You guys. This wedding. Where do I start? I think the photo above accurately depicts the sheer amount of JOY that radiated throughout this day. Ellie & Pete are highschool sweethearts and they and their families waited 8 years for this day and it was so worth the wait. I photographed Ellie’s older brother’s wedding […]

Cristina & Michael || Downtown Pittsburgh Wedding

October 8, 2021

Classy, elegant, and a pop of just plain cool are the best words I can think to describe this incredibly fun downtown Pittsburgh wedding. Cristina and Michael were such an enjoyable couple to work with and their laid back attitudes and love of life and adventure came together for a wonderful day. I don’t know […]

MaryKate & Tom || Philly Franklin Commons Wedding

September 28, 2021

I feel like I start to sound like a broken record with each new wedding I share, but I just can’t help it! MaryKate and Tom’s wedding was incredible from beginning to end and it was an honor to be a part of it. MaryKate went to Franciscan University with me and it was so […]

Taylor & Vaughan || Nashville Summer Engagement Session

September 21, 2021

A few weeks ago I flew out to Nashville for a quick 24-hour trip to capture Taylor and Vaughan’s engagement photos. Taylor went to Franciscan University with me (she was just a few years ahead of me) and we belonged to the same household (FUS’s version of a sorority). Taylor is an incredible musician and […]
