I vow to be there on your wedding day come rain or shine, for 2 guests or 200, for the smiles, the tears, and everything in between. I vow to be your confidant and friend — someone who earns your trust, who respects your vulnerability, and who honors your love story by documenting it authentically.

I’m gonna love you like nobody’s loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river
Come rain or come shine
Tina and Eli were truly my ideal clients. During our in-person consultation, Tina expressed that she wanted lots of candid, unposed photos during her wedding at Noah’s Event Venue located in Cranberry, PA. Sure, people say that all the time but Tina and Eli’s wedding was practically a goldmine for great moments. I’m not sure if I had so much success at capturing so many moments at this wedding because I already knew half of the bridal party–and probably half of the guests–or if everyone was genuinely so much fun to be around. Considering that I went to high school with Tina and most of the bridal party, I can confirm that yes, Tina and pretty much everyone there was an absolute blast to be around! And judging by the size of their guest list, everyone else agrees too.
Tina loved the industrial details at Noah’s Event Venue, including the Edison lights and brick details which complimented the color of her bridesmaid’s dresses from Azazie so beautifully. Men’s Warehouse had the guys looking sharp. The videographer with FineLine was great to work with, and DJ Mike Dunn kept the dance floor packed. Banquets Unlimited was soooo delicious–another wedding with fantastic mac and cheese! Tina’s sweet friend Shawna Sardone arranged the florals and blooms.
And special shout out to my second shooter Lou Ruediger! He captured one of my favorite unpredictable moments of the year: the moment that Tina was waiting to walk down the aisle but decided to take a quick last minute shot at the bar! I am so jealous! This was the perfect example of why adding a second photographer to your budget is SO IMPORTANT to get proper coverage of your wedding day–I was positioned next to Eli and if it wasn’t for Lou, the moment wouldn’t have been documented. And also! Shout out for scouting out THE MOST KILLER LOCATION for Tina and Eli’s sunset location. Those golden hour photos are still some of my favorites from this wedding season. Plenty of Lou’s photos are scattered in the post below.
Tina, wow, you looked STUNNING! Congratulations and thank you for inviting me to document your day.
