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 […]

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 […]

Ollie’s Spring Flower Child Dream | Erie Pennsylvania Dress Up Portraits


I love intimate weddings so much.  Part of my wedding brand is intimate portraits that you share with you new bride or groom in those moments.  I was so ready and elated when I received an email from Wendy about her upcoming wedding.  She warned me ahead of time that this was going to be […]

Mr. & Mrs. Topel | An Intimate Hometown Elopement on Lake Erie


Have you ever looked at a big, happy family and just thought to yourself, “I would love to see that many smiles every day”? I know for a fact that I have, and spending time with this family on such a beautiful day really solidified that for me. Rick and Katie blended these two families […]
