Snow and the chill of the winter air was the perfect backdrop to Jarod and Tiffany’s New Year’s Eve wedding! The wedding was held at the family home, and not one eye was dry during their ceremony. Everyone is SO incredibly happy for these two! More photos to come! ❤
Two of my favorite people ❤ Their joyful engagements and gorgeous wedding. A strong, charming, hilarious man, and a sweet, thoughtful, loving young woman. It was THE best weekend celebrating so much love with these two ❤
Kate + Jarrod had a lovely, intimate wedding at Jenning’s Environmental Center in Slippery Rock, PA. The ceremony was complete with their closest friends and family. It was a gorgeous day for photos around the center, in a perfect prarie setting with a golden glow sunset. They are such wonderful people, I wish them the best in their long, happy life together! ❤
We headed to the Butler City Hunting Fishing Club (formerly the East Butler Hunting Fishing Club) for Tiffany and Jarod’s engagement photos. It’s a great location as it’s so easy to find, and provides so many areas for beautiful, green photos.
It was a perfect evening as the sun set through the woods, and Tiffany’s angel hair looked gorgeous in the setting sun!
Olivia graciously agreed to do some modeling for me at our local Butler YMCA. We were in need of photos, and she had become so dedicated to fitness and health, and makes it look good! It was great to get to know her more, and to also see some of her routines!
Missy and her boys were SO excited as they awaited the arrival of their new baby! Missy was a glowing mommy, so we did some prism work with her solo portraits. It’s great to do different combinations of family portraits in one session! I love to do parents by themselves, and each with the child by themselves, and then solo with each child. There’s no limit to combinations! I love to offer the variety pack with each session, and you get to keep all of your images too!
Some of my favorite photos are done with a prism! These are done with no filter, no photoshop, and no editing. All the images are straight out of the camera! (sooc) I’m kind of a purist when it comes to all the editing that’s done to photos these days. If I can’t do it in-camera, I don’t want it. I want to see things as they are, or add the magic myself. Holding a prism over the lens while shooting adds magic to the moment, and this tiny girl is instantly taken to Wonderland instead of a simple backyard. This is easily done anywhere, and it doesn’t even have to be a sunny day to have the prism rainbows work. In fact, it actually works better on a cloudy day, out of direct sunlight. The prism is always in my camera bag!
Emily and Lee shared a beautiful winter engagement! We waited patiently until it snowed to do these cozy photos! They had Cumming’s coffee and each other to keep warm in the snow. Surrounded by gorgeous holly trees at Succop Nature Park, the red and green contrasted perfectly against the brilliant white snow.
Jordyn is a doll, and I loved our shooting time spent together! She’s got the coolest style–laid back but full of personality! We met at Allegheny Cemetery for greenery photos, and then walked around Lawrenceville in Pittsburgh for the cool city scapes and beautiful murals.
Rachel and Cody are two peas in a pod with their love of the outdoors, and for each other. Their beautiful, romantic wedding was perfectly set outside in rolling hills with a glowing sunset, surrounded by loved ones. Rachel looked stunning in her gown, and their cheerful colors of yellow and light gray complimented the rustic features through the barn and ceremony. These two were perfect models–lost in the moment of each other, their vows, and their first dance, everyone was crying (including me) and I could have shot them all day. Their love is beautiful and uplifting to see–I wish them a long and happy life together ❤
