So I was more than super excited that my bride, Jessica, had a Rock the Dress session planned in my very favorite city of Pittsburgh after her wedding.  The fashion magazine modeling look that I love is what I set out to bring to this and I can’t even say how natural it was for Jess.  She was awesome!  We had an amazing time just strolling through the city listening to the “congratulations” and the cat calls (lol) as people noticed how gorgeous she was in her gown.  We truly had the best time.  You can see how it came out for yourself below.  My wish is that more and more of my brides sign up for these.  They’re just so much fun!  You’re relaxed, natural and you get to rock your beautiful dress, again, which is so worth it.  How many people get to wear theirs twice and get a totally different look to go with their wedding images?!

Thanks for having faith in my vision, Jessica!  You totally rocked it!  🙂

Jessica & Jeff’s wedding earlier this year was perfect!  The weather, the bridal party, the day, and especially, the couple – from start to finish.  🙂  We started out that morning at the Salon at Creekside with Jess and her girls.  The girls were creating Bitmojis (this app is a must…lol) as they waited to get their hair/make-up done (by Sin Pretty Beauty) and were cracking us up.  A quick visit with Jeff and the guys and then we arrived at Jessica’s parents’ home where her dogs were all ready for their close-ups with their very own tuxes (too cute!).  Their wedding at St. Columba was beautiful.  This church is definitely one of my favorites.  What a gorgeous church to say I do in.

We had plenty of time for formals, which makes our day even more perfect.  So we visited The Butler, Youngstown Courthouse and the Cinderella Bridge before everyone danced the night away at Antone’s with The House Band.  I have to mention that her father’s speech was one of the sweetest, most heartfelt father of the bride speeches I’ve ever heard and pretty much brought everyone to tears.  I’m glad that Mike (Acclaim Productions – check out their video here) was there to capture that. <3

Jessica & Jeff – I’m so glad that you chose us to photograph your day.  I definitely feel like I’ve made some new friends along the way and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you two!

Stay tuned for Jessica’s gorgeous Rock the Dress session in Pittsburgh!!  😉

Danielle & Jeff’s gorgeous Youngstown, OH engagement at Mill Creek was so fun.  They are such a sweet couple and gorgeous!  I love Danielle’s style and pink pumps, especially!  We happened upon a rose that was perfect for the ring shot and after exploring the rose garden, we headed over to Lanterman’s Mill for a more casual look (Jeff’s favorite spot!).  I’m so excited for their upcoming wedding, which is only a few weeks away!!  Check out some of my favorites from their session and be sure to leave them some love below!

We incorporated a lot of the steel city into Holly & Scott’s Pittsburgh, PA engagement session.  From Primanti’s to the Pens, Mellon Park to the Strip District…I truly love Pittsburgh.  We started out at the most beautiful park (in my opinion) in Pittsburgh.  Holly came prepared with awesome shoes (she know I love them!) and then we headed over to the strip to finish it up with some Pitts-Style love!  I have to admit, I had to hit Primanti’s after our session was over to grab a famous Pittsburger for my ride home…so yummy!

I’ve known Holly for a few years now and I can’t even say how happy I am to see her with the love of her life.  He’s a total sweetheart, just like Holly.  Can’t wait to watch them get married in the Fall!  <3

A few weeks ago, I had a chance to hang out with Christina & Drew to shoot their Youngstown, OH Engagement.  Christina brought lots of props to play with and an open mind.  Not only did we get some amazing images, but I had so much fun with them!  🙂  First off, Christina is hysterical.  I know this, because not long after the engagement – she was the maid of honor for another bride of mine and she was cracking me up all day long.  Drew?  Well, he is the perfect compliment to her and a true gentleman (making sure we didn’t fall on our way to the waterfall).  They are so sweet together!  So even though their wedding is almost to the day – a year away, I can’t wait!

Check out their session below and be sure to leave them some love in the comments!  🙂
