Congratulations to Sami & Craig!  We had a great time at their Fall wedding!  Such awesome details.  The candy/cookie table was filled with all of everyone’s favorites and the wine list rocked.  They hit the area wineries and even created a variety of their own for the celebration.  The pumpkin cake…all I can say is yum.  Definitely my new favorite.  Not only were the details great, they are just one of the sweetest couples ever.  Very thoughtful and so great to work with.

Sami & Craig's personal mix - this was delicious (they gave us some as a gift!)

The room was buzzing that morning while all the girls where busy getting ready.

Sami's dress was beautiful.

My absolute favorite bridesmaid dress of the year! It was actually two pieces - gorgeous.

One last check before she heads down the aisle.

St. James Meeting Place

Craig's brother performed the ceremony.

The girls were so funny! 🙂

Tons of people on the dancefloor including DJ Branden 🙂

Had an awesome time shooting this wedding with Jimmy!  Congratulations, again, Sami & Craig!

Ceremony – St. James Meeting Place in Boardman Park | Reception – Blue Wolf Banquet Center | Music – DJ Branden

These two had me going from the start.  Ryan was convinced he was going to be “Chandler Bing” from the day we met (for those of you who were fans of “Friends”, you know what I mean).  Melissa’s father warned during our second meeting that she’s a blinker.  🙂   They were both great!  No blinking and no “Bing” moments.  The colors in the park were gorgeous that day and even though it was threatening rain, the weather held out and the session went off without a hitch (just a tiny bit of rain for about a half a second).  I had a lot of fun walking around with the two of them and can’t wait for their wedding next year!

This tree is always my favorite in the Fall. 🙂

This time of year in PA is just crazy weather-wise.  One day it’s freezing, next day it’s hot, then it’s raining…you get the idea (especially if you live here).  When I met Steve and Jennifer for their session at Westminster College, it was so cold.  But by the time we were finishing up an hour later, I was sweating.  Regardless of the weather, it is always a beautiful place to shoot at and I really enjoyed my session with these two.  Steve is a musician and so we talked about music and we all got to know each other a little better.  I was also told Steve got his wedding gift early and being a techie, I’m quite jealous of his brand new IPad. 😉

Looking forward to the wedding in Spring!

Probably one of the coolest stories I’ve heard lately…Amberly moved all the way from Iowa to meet her soul mate and…they share the same last name (no relation, of course).  That’s right…she doesn’t even have to bother changing her name when they exchange their vows next summer.  I don’t think you realize what a pain that can be, until you actually do it.  🙂

They’ll be getting married close by in New Castle, but they both loved the idea of a city session along with some Fall color in the background.  So we met up in Pittsburgh…one of my favorite areas to shoot in.  They both had great style and are a stunning couple.  Here are some of my favorites from their session.

I love this one.

Amberly's shoes rocked. 🙂

Could be my favorite from the day...

Looking forward to the wedding next year!

The past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity of photographing some great seniors…from football players to a city girl, the best thing about these sessions is how unique they are to the individual.  Mike is a senior in Salem and an amazing athlete (I’ve been told).  So we headed to Reilly Field for a few shots in his jersey and then to the park for what I like to call the mom shots.  You know the guys…most want the “tough” shot, but mom is going to make them dress up for a few and why shouldn’t she.  It’s a parent’s last chance to get their child to take pictures the way they want them to look.  🙂  Both turned out great.  Thank you, Diana, for returning to me this year with your second graduating son.  It was a total pleasure!

The wall was painted white, so this worked out perfect!
