When you have friends get married and they ask you to be a vendor, there is always a moment where you wonder if you’ll be good enough. Always.  I’m the kind of friend who wants literally only the best for my friends and so to have someone say that they want me really makes my […]

Mr. & Mrs. Phelps | A Floral Filled Autumn Downtown Erie Wedding


We were running out of funny things to say.  It was time and there was no turning back.  She was ready to walk up those stairs and down the aisle to her husband. It got quiet and a sense of calmness fell over the giggles that came from the hidden hallway.  As I watched her […]

Mr. & Mrs. Redditt | A Sunset Edinboro Lake Wedding


As she sniffled through her vows, the true emotion in her voice ripped my heart in two.  I had to put my camera down and press my fingers into my under eyes.  I may cry at weddings, but this was a new one.  Devon spoke eloquently and gracefully as much as she could and as […]

Mr. & Mrs. Shearer | An Intimate Caroga Lake 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!


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


“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


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 woke up April 28th way earlier than I normally would.  I was filled with jitters and excitement and so much energy.  It was still dark out but I jumped in the shower and pulled out my favorite wedding day dress.  The first wedding of the season always has a special spark to it, and […]

Mr. and Mrs. Martin | A Spring Erie Pa Wedding


I am so excited right now to be able to share this post with you.  This has been in the works for months, and it all started as a normal, run of the mill idea for a styled shoot.  I am a wedding photographer, so during the months that aren’t crazy busy I get bored. […]
