Kristine & Tanner | Bushy Run Wedding | Greensburg, PA

More often then not, the week before a wedding I end up praying really hard when the forecast shows rain on a wedding day. But as we all know, you can never really trust the weatherman’s predictions, especially in western Pennsylvania! But like He always does, God held back the rain for all the important...

Tayler & Brad | Engagement | Scottdale, Pennsylvania

West Overton Village is a wonderful place for any wedding or engagement session. I’ve been writing and rewriting this post for so long. Tayler & Brad’s love story has had me giddy since the day I heard it, and I’ve been trying to put it into words that would even come close to them telling it...

Succop Conservancy Wedding | Butler, Pennsylvania

A couple weeks ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot with Jenna Brianne Photography at Succop Conservancy. Succop is a beautiful place known for it’s birds and nature. This was my second time shooting there and it is stunning. They have an outdoor pavillion where a reception can be held, and indoors there is...

Being A Bridesmaid | Part 1

As part of the female population, I can’t deny that I haven’t planned and replanned my dream wedding in my head repeatedly. Shades of pink and shimmering gold..strings of lights over an outdoor patio full of dancers…and of course having one of the greatest photographers in the world there to capture it all. I met...

Prom Portraits | Irwin, Pennsylvania

As a former homeschool student, prom wasn’t one of those things that I looked forward to. For one, there was not a homeschool prom (until my senior year) and for two, I never thought the idea of getting together with a bunch of people who I don’t know and dancing/eating with them was a fantastic...

Jessica & Brian { Engagement | Hunker, PA }

Every day, I find myself wanting to sing “It’s a small world after all!” The story of how I met Jess and how I met Brian is kind of funny. I worked with Jess’s dad for 3 years at my Dad’s heating and air conditioning business. I always heard stories about Jess and her brother...

Amber {Class of 2015}

I have to admit, when I met Amber for her senior photo session, I called her by her sister’s name, Kate! I was so embarassed afterwards when I realized I had got the two mixed up somewhere along the line. I still can’t believe I did that, but she forgave me. (thank goodness!) With several...

Morgan & Brandon { Wedding | The Hayloft }

Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m so excited to finally be blogging a wedding for the first time! It’s been a long road, but I am looking forward to the new things I will be doing this year in my business. Choosing where to start was easy though. When I looked back from all the weddings I...

Paint Splashes {All About Me}

The day we met, we knew we’d become very good friends. We sat beside each other our very first day of college classes, knowing not what was to come. I, being the fearless risk taker, decided to introduce myself. “Hi! I’m Ellen.” “Hello. I’m Sarah.” “It’s nice to meet you Sarah!” “Nice to meet you...
