Abbie’s Editorial Portraits in the Snow | Edinboro Pa


Ollie and I got to play in the snow together last week! I was just so excited to jump into winter portraits that I couldn’t wait.  I had to wait for her to get home from school, but as soon as she walked in with her daddy I was ready! “It’s cold out” was all […]

A Snow Princess | Erie Pa Winter Child Portraits


Last weekend the snow came to Pa! It was about darn time if you ask me, and while I’m not so much a fan of the blistering cold I love the snow.  There is just something so magical and gorgeous about it, especially when you throw in a couple in love! Amber and Nate met […]

Nate & Amber | A Snowy Christmas Tree Farm Engagement Session | Edinboro Pa Photographer


The snow is finally here!! You know what else is finally up and running and absolutely perfect? This new blog and website situation.  Have you ever tried to fix something so many times that you just hated it? That’s how I was feeling.  My blog and site didn’t match what my brand is all about- […]

Jessica & Brandon | A Family in the Snow Engagement Mini | Erie Pa Engagement Session


I have had a lot of firsts this year, animal portraits being one of them.  I don’t typically market myself for them, and I’m not always sure that I will be able to give the best portraits, but I haven’t heard otherwise! It’s exciting and fun to try new things every now and then, and I love animals so why the heck not?!

Dobe & Sassy | Equine Portraiture Edinboro Pa


I am LOVING meeting these couples for 2018! You don’t even know how wonderful it is for me to meet these guys and have some fun with these engagement sessions.  I met with Meredith and Mason at a Christmas tree farm and we did a little walking around.  I have actually never been to a tree farm before (I know GASP) so it was really fun to just see how awesome they are.

Mason & Meredith | A Christmas Tree Farm Engagement Session Edinboro Pa


Happy Wedding Wednesday!! That’s a thing right? If not it is now! I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with another one of my 2018 couples and let me tell you they are so wonderful! We were laughing pretty much the entire time we weren’t shivering.  It wasn’t that bad (I’ve photographed in worse) but it was still cold.

Jeremy & Carrie Engaged! | An Erie Pa Wintergreen Gorge Engagement Session


Happy Monday!! I’ve been on the fence and of the fence about sharing these types of posts with you, but I really gave a hard thought and I decided that I would keep seeing frustration and sadness in brides unless I started the conversation.  So here goes.  Today I want to talk to you about your wedding photographer, and their style.  I know that doesn’t really seem that important right? Like why can’t you just find someone who takes beautiful photos and is in your budget and call it a day? You can, but I’m here to tell you that you won’t be as happy as you could be with a photographer who’s style speaks to your soul.

Choosing a Photographer Based on Style | SZP Education


Happy Friday!! Today I am so excited and honored to be sharing my personal thoughts on a product for photographers.  I received an email a few weeks back from a wonderful company called Sleeklens.  They offer workflows and presets for photographers, and they have a workflow dedicated to wedding photographers!! How amazing is that? So I’ve had the workflow for a little while and I’ve been testing it out and playing around with it, and I wanted to just share my thoughts on it.

Preset and Workflow Review! | SZP Education


Hi there!! I love welcoming my new brides during the engagement season.  It makes me so excited, and happy and crazy. So, naturally when we set the date for Andrew and Brittany’s engagement session, I was SO EXCITED! The wether however had a different story.  Luckily we were able to find a new date that worked perfectly.  Brittany actually lives in Buffalo, so she made the drive over to Erie for her session and I’m really happy that we were able to come together.  These guys are so adorable.  I was smiling the whole session so much that my cheeks hurt when I was left.
