A light warm breeze moved through the trees.  I pulled into the gravel parking lot and looked up to see the beautiful historic house.  Going inside I heard the laughter of the ladies and I saw Jen’s warm smile.  We squealed and hugged and I was off to check out the levels of the house […]

Mr. & Mrs. Taylor | A Country Golf Course Wedding


It was finally the first day of the rest of their lives.  After miles and continents apart, time and God brought them together as one.  IT was everything they could have dreamed of, and it was planned in a handful of months.  Reread that last part.  Months.  Not years, or even 1 full year.  If […]

Mr. & Mrs. Blazek | A Garden Atrium Hotel Wedding


Prepare yourselves for this blog post.  It’s a doozy.  A good doozy but I hope you stick with me until the end.  The month of July is over, and while I am so sad that fall is coming, I’m happy that my month of travel every week is done.  I took July and spent a […]

Workshop Mania!


The morning sun was bright and hot.  More hot than usual.  It was a windows down kind of drive and I was so excited to see how things were going at Quincy Estate.  I had been waiting for Carrie and Jeremy’s wedding for some time. We had such a great time during their engagement session, […]

Mr. & Mrs. Krawczyk | A Qunicy Cellars Winery Wedding


I looked out the window as the speedometer needle lowered.  The view was terrifyingly beautiful.  I could feel my heart quicken as I tried to meander my way through the mountain roads.  When I arrived and got out of the car, the warm summer air took me by surprise.  I heard the sweetest voice as […]

A Lake Minnewaska Engagement


The 2nd styling with Sam shoot was last week, and oh mylanta was it perfection.  I spent months planning and being picky over details for this shoot.  I wanted it to stand out from the norm in styled wedding shoots, and I am so happy to say that I did just that with the help […]

Fruits Of Love Styled Shoot Recap | Styling With Sam


The drive was far, but not the farthest.  We had the radio and AC on blast, and the highway was flying by.  I was getting those nervous but excited butterflies that I get before every wedding.  I had never met Amanda or Isaac minus a call we shared and a string of emails.  I knew […]

Mr. & Mrs. Eshleman | A Mammoth Park Wedding | Mount Pleasant Pennsylvania


“He’s so wholesome”.  Even though it may have been a joke or lack of better adjectives, after spending time with Adam and Leah I think that wholesome is a great word to describe their love for one another.  We met on a warm sunny evening, the light hit all of  the trees in the most […]

A Whispering Trees Engagement | Adam and Leah


“We were thinking of maybe doing some of our portraits on a friend’s boat.  Do you think that would be ok?” Meredith sat across from me in the Panera booth and I about jumped out of my chair.  I’ve never been on a sailboat or anything, and I knew that the portraits would be beyond […]

Mr. & Mrs. Reininger | An Erie Yacht Club Wedding


Dress up portraits are something that I started with my daughter before she could even tell me no.  I knew that eventually there’d be a time where she didn’t want to do them anymore, but I also knew she’d come back. Ollie is one free spirited girl; she’s full of fire and ‘tude.   Sure sometimes […]
