It’s always stressful to photograph a friend, but it’s a bit more stressful to photograph a friend’s wedding. And even more so when that friend is a wedding photographer! Lucky for me, Amanda and Steven were wonderful to photograph. I was able to work as a photojournalistic wedding photographer and find unposed photos all throughout […]

Amanda & Steven’s Wedding in Zelienople, PA

A couple poses for a photojournalistic wedding portrait on their wedding day.

Erin and Mike were a memorable couple. So when I heard the news that Mike passed away last week, I was gutted. Mike was diagnosed with liver cancer on New Years Eve and passed away 4 weeks later. When I heard the news that he was gone, I immediately called the one other person who […]

Erin and Mike’s Gateway Clipper Wedding

I’ll never shoot a better night photo than this one. I remember exactly when I made it. During Bethany and Justin’s wedding reception at the Sheraton Hotel in Station Square, I had asked the bride and groom to step outside for a few night photos. The hotel is located right next to train tracks and […]

Bethany and Justin’s Downtown Pittsburgh Wedding

Lindsey and Austin are the epitome of industrial chic.Emphasis on the chic. But having known Lindsey since elementary school, that was not a surprise. You might recognize Lindsey and Austin from their Washington DC engagement session (check it out here) so you could say I was pretty pumped for their wedding. I was joined by […]

Lindsey and Austin’s Industrial Chic Washington DC Wedding

Where do I even begin with Nikki and Lee’s wedding? The hugs! The whole day reminded me of the big family reunions I have with my family during the summer: surrounded by happy kids, laughing adults enjoying cold beers, soooo many hugs, and even a enjoying a bonfire with s’mores at night. That’s exactly the […]

Nikki and Lee’s Wedding at The Barn at Ever Thine in Fenelton, PA

Oh I loved this wedding. A fellow photographer and crazily talented photojournalist asked me to shoot her wedding. It was the perfect opportunity for me to shoot pure, unposed, documentary style wedding images because here is a bride who literally understands what it means to have newspaper photographer experience. Ohhh geez ok pressure pressure pressure […]

Kristina and Matt’s Robin Hill Park Wedding

What did I love the most from Chelsea and Adam’s wedding? It wasn’t Chelsea’s gorgeous bouquet, her Sottero and Midgley gown, or classy chiavari chairs. It wasn’t the super trendy moongate arch, delicious cake, or the huge chandeliers at The Crystal Room. It wasn’t any of the things. My favorite part was watching Chelsea get […]

Kaitlyn and Travis’s Heinz Chapel Oakland Wedding in Pittsburgh PA

I love when wedding clients intentionally hire me for my documentary-style photography vision. Becca and Ben were no different!  When I arrived to photograph Becca and her ladies as they prepped and dressed for the wedding, Becca apologized for the hyper-colorful murals in the Sunday School room. Then she quickly followed up with, “But I […]

Becca and Ben’s Wintery Country Club Wedding in Indiana, PA

I know I say this all the time……but this was one of my favorite weddings from 2017.  You might remember Kendy and Joe from one of my favorite engagement sessions (view those images here) at Mellon Park and a parking garage rooftop in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. Kendy and I hit it off immediately as we […]
