Child Photographer|Beaver, PA

Lovin’ the Farm Life

I recently photographed Ryan, so many milestone markers coming!  Not only did he just have a birthday, but he would be starting Pre-K.  Sometimes it is hard as a photographer to find just the right location to match a client’s personality…but what boy doesn’t like tractors and hay fields?

We explored the barn, then went to investigate equipment in the back field …

Ran through the fruit orchard and found this little tree, then back to the path at the field for some hide and go seek as we wrapped up!  We had so much fun!

It was a fantastic session, and I wish this little man all the best with his year packed full of new experiences.  I can’t wait to photograph him again next year!

Hope you had a wonderful 4th birthday, Ryan!!

Wedding Photography|Irvine Park

Beaver Gazebo wedding

Rachel and Brandon tied the knot, and this Beaver gazebo wedding was nothing short of spectacular.  It was a beautifully intimate wedding ceremony at the gazebo of Irvine Park in Beaver, Pennsylvania on Friday, July, 3rd, 2015. Ironically, the modern expressions, “tying the knot,” “bonds of matrimony” and “hand in marriage” all hail from the ancient traditions of twisting the bride’s and groom’s clothing together or wrapping their wrists with braided cords, grasses or vines.  None the less, a Celtic tradition representing the intertwining of the two individual lives into one.


Beaver gazebo wedding | photographers backstory

Let’s rewind a moment …  I was so very nervous to photograph their special day, I never got to meet the Bride or Groom face to face.  After I meet a Bride and Groom I begin to envision different poses, and the ideal settings to capture their unique style.  Rachel and I only had a few phone consultations in the month leading up up to their “I Do’s”, but we shared each others expectations, and some pictures that gave me an idea of her style.

As a photographer, some of the most loved photos are of the groom when he first sees his bride.  She was beautiful,  I wish I had my second shooter just to capture the groom’s expression as she walked down the aisle.  No doubt I imagine it was a lot like mine, she was simply stunning!


After the ceremony we gathered with friends and family to capture portraits, and specious moments for the couple to enjoy for a life time to come.

Congratulations Rachel and Brandon!

May your days be filled with much love and blessings from above.

“Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.”

Engagement Photography | Brush Creek Park

Engagement photography at Brush Creek Park

This is the big reveal of an engagement photography session at Brush Creek Park. I met Kelsie at the wedding consultation. I knew that she was a person I wanted to work with.  I did not meet Tom until the day of the engagement shoot. Needless to say I was a little nervous, well really nervous. But, it became clear within the first couple of photographs that they would be featured on the blog.

Little snickers here and smiles there,

 and is so much love and romance in this couple.

 The teasing that I captured from across the pond,

 preparing for the next two shot …


It was turning out to be a beautiful session and it was just the first location, there are two more to go! Next location was the covered bridge, and I presume, Tom’s favorite!  Oh, and I forgot to mention, he loves pictures!


By the second location, the two were even more relaxed … I had never experienced the perfect photographic couple until now!  


They were willing to pose any way I asked and giggled when I put them in awkward poses.  We had a blast, and did I mention their love for one another?

They were so sweet!

It was almost time to head to the final location, and was so glad that they were up for anything.  I wanted to kick up the romance a notch, and they were all for it!


A friend of Tom’s had commented that the picture (above right) as “winning!!!”

I couldn’t agree more, never thought about the pose that way, and giggled!

From here we visited our last location …

Had some fun in the field with the blazing sun starting to shine down on us.  Thank you shady tree for allowing us to grab a few more great shots!

and, of course, we wrap it up with a pictures that include the ring

 … gotta have the ring!

It was a sublime morning with an amazing and beautiful couple.  I cannot wait to photograph their special day 04.16.16. Stay tuned in to view their wedding day highlights.  I am truly blessed, not only to be photographing this couple, but to have met this couple.  They are a true reminder through action of what true love is.

A wedding on the lake|Wedding Photographer|Conneaut Lake

Conneaut Lake Hotel wedding

Mark and Sara tied the knot on June 28, 2014!! A beautiful destination wedding held at the Conneaut Hotel in Ohio.  It was a beautiful outdoor wedding on the lake front.  We were so honored to capture their weekend full of beautiful memories with family and friends. Conneaut Lake Hotel wedding day highlights.

This beautiful and somewhat historic venue is just a hop, skip, and jump away from Conneaut park.  A location full of history and beauty.  Regrettably, we did not have time within the wedding day to use this beautiful location for the bride and grooms portraits.  I hope to one day return to this venue, and capture photos there as well.
