I first met Sara when we were both planning our weddings a few years back. We keep in touch and she’s been so kind to offer me up the use of some of her family property for shoots when I’m in town.

And wow, it is a great piece of property. I actually have a shot of the exterior of the home that I took that I think would make a GREAT Christmas card for them next year-I’m not posting it for privacy reasons, but it is in their gallery for them to enjoy!

Sara and her family were looking to have some extended family portraits done around Christmastime when the whole gang was together, especially their grandparents.

Rather than go to a studio with over twenty people, they decided to do some on-location shots. The Christmas decorations and the wood and fireplace made for a really cozy scene. We even included some pets in a few of the shots!

These are a little more formal than most of my work, but I think the holidays are a time for a little formality!

Thanks so much, M. family, for having me! I hope a joyous holiday was had by all! 🙂

On February 7th, I drove over to Deltona for Melissa and Mike’s big day. Their two adorable little girls were there too, of course, serving as flower girls.

The ceremony was small and intimate, overlooking the lake, with closest family and friends in attendance. It was a bit chilly, but Melissa improvised and just went with it.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day!

Melissa and Mike, please keep in touch over the years! I had a great time meeting you and working with you!

Here’s yet another look back to my second shoot, back in 2008. All my original text is in italics.
Last weekend, I shot the engagement photos of an acquaintance from high school (McKeesport, of course, notice the sign? lol). It was nice to meet her fiance and hear what she’s been up to the past five years.


Sarah actually met her fiance at work at GE…pronounced lovingly by those of us in PGH as “GineIggle.” Therefore, I found this photo totally fitting their story:


Anyway, it was bitterly, bitterly cold, but they were troopers. And the snow ended up as a light dusting, which made the scene very Christmasy!



Here are just a few of my favorites of the 319 shots they are getting for engagement pictures and as Christmas gifts for their parents.

As a side note, I have noticed that my favorite shots aren’t necessarily photos that the couples want. Sometimes, shots I really dislike will be their favorites and vice-versa, which is what makes photography so great. It is so subjective; there’s something for everyone!


Their wedding is in June…six short months away. Time flies, as they told me they have already been engaged for almost a year, and it has gone by so quickly. I’m just 2.5 months away, and I can barely believe it! 🙂

This couple has now been married for more than 6 months and are loving it! Time flies! Sharing my early work makes me a bit nervous, but it is important to see where I am coming from, where I am improving, and where I am headed to with my style.
