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!  🙂

If I had to describe Katie & Nathan’s Sharon, PA wedding in one word – elegant.  New Year’s Day, fur coats, beautiful decor and The Corinthian…so gorgeous.  I love that she changed her dress for the first dance!  These two met, like most people meet these days – online.  The internet must be doing something right, because they are perfect for each other.  They keep each other laughing and Nathan’s love for Katie extends right thru to her little boy.  Their bond was very obvious to me, especially during the ceremony (check out the little guy sitting at the altar as they exchanged their vows…so adorable!)  I, also, love when a parent of the bride or groom serves as the officiant.  I’ve seen it many times through-out my career.  It’s so personal and emotional.  Nathan’s dad was the officiant for their ceremony.

Katie & Nathan – thank you so much for including us in your special day!  I wish you many years of happiness together!!

Athena & Ronnie’s Warren, Oh wedding at St. Demetrio’s was emotional to say the least.  Her father not only gave her away, but he was, also, the officiant.  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the church when Rev. Valantasis spoke of the day he brought his daughter home from the hospital.  It still brings a tear to my eye when I think of it.

We began that chilly day at Lake Newport for their first look.  This was probably the quietest, most peaceful first look I’ve ever done.  The lake was so quiet and the boardwalk was empty, except for us.  Then we headed to the flower garden for some quick formals and off to the church.  I had never been to St. Demetrio’s before that day – wow, so beautiful!

Here is a link to the highlight video created by Mike Tsagares of Acclaim Productions – highly recommend him and Judy for videography every time! 🙂

Thank you for having Jamie & I as part of your day, Ronnie & Athena!!  It was truly an honor.  <3
