I am Pittsburgh born and bred. My first camera, a Kodak Star 110 found its way into my hands when I was in third grade. I was OBSESSED! I grew up here, went to college here (Hail to Pitt!) and started my business here. Here being Pittsburgh! Before becoming a full-time Pittsburgh wedding photographer, I got my business smarts by working at the American Eagle Outfitters corporate office. My love for creativity and documenting the art of weddings pushed me to go full time with my business in 2011. Over the years I have been incredibly blessed to work with some amazing couples. My favorite thing about being a wedding photographer is getting to know the unique love story behind each of my couples. I also love pretty things so naturally bridal portraits are my favorite time of the wedding day. Being a Pinterest and Etsy addict myself, I love working with inspired brides who bring details and DIY into their wedding day! Some of my favorite things include hot tea (Tazo Zen and Teavana Peach Tranquility to be exact!), hot yoga, family time with my husband and two little girls, traveling, and bible study with my Pursuit Community family. I love making new friends and I’m also an Instagram addict!
I am so glad that you found your way to my blog! I have had the joy of photographing countless weddings and engagement sessions in Pittsburgh and across western Pennsylvania for the past four years. My philosophy is to bring joy for a lifetime through memories captured. My clients hire me because they love my ability to create beautiful bridal portraits as well as capture the candid moments through a photojournalistic point of view. I am a huge believer in the whole experience of a wedding. My wedding photography thrives through getting to know my clients very well and enabling them to feel extremely comfortable with me.
I have been published in Whirl magazine as well as the nationally recognized wedding blog, Style Me Pretty. I am honored to have been awarded with the Knot Best of Weddings Award for both 2015 and 2014 as well as the Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award for 2015. I would love to hear your love story.
