Andrew + Kim I always love when I am connected with couples in interesting ways. Andrew and Kim first found me on the Pittsburgh Discord channel. I’m so glad they did because we had an amazing engagement session with gorgeous fresh spring weather. I’ve photographed a billion sessions in the areas outside Pitt’s Cathedral of […]

Bree + Lydia Trying to time a session with the elusive blooming of cherry blossom trees is always a fun game to play, but Bree and Lydia were flexible enough to make it happen! Though we faced some chilly and rainy weather, plus a few surprises like the Horticulture Center being closed despite it being […]

Michelle + Sean I have been wanting to do a studio engagement session since I first opened my brand new studio in Allentown Pittsburgh. So I was completely thrilled when Michelle and Sean said that’s exactly what they had in mind for their engagement session. We had so much fun playing with outfits and backdrops […]

Rylan + Gabby Rylan reached out to me with the adorable idea of a mid-date surprise proposal. We worked out a plan together, and he chose Phipps’ Japanese Courtyard Garden as ✨The Spot✨. He and Gabby made their way through the botanical garden leisurely, while I sat in wait in the Japanese Courtyard section. When […]

Erica + Matthew Really fun fact about the venue Pinehall at Eisler, you can use the premises for your engagement session! What a neat way for us to scope out all the best spots for wedding portraits. Of course, it’ll likely be a different season, but that means you’ll get more variety. Erica and Matthew […]

Cheyanne + Vinny The vision Cheyanne and Vinny had for this session was *chef’s kiss*. They said they wanted a fall engagement session with falling leaves, always a good choice. They also wanted to incorporate their favorite bits of life: their ten-year-old Shetland Sheepdog Kota and playing board games. What resulted was a nod to […]

Selina + Matt Also called Herr’s Island, Washington’s Landing is such a neat spot for an engagement session. It’s usually pretty empty and it’s got a little bit of everything – forest, fields, a beautiful river view. There’s also a stone staircase that feels just a lil’ bit like Italy to me. Selina and Matt […]

Whitney + Ryan The Pittsburgh Botanic Garden is a gorgeous spot for engagements and weddings alike. It has a forest with several storybook inspired installations as well as acres and acres of beautiful foilage and florals. Whitney and Ryan took full advantage of the beauty of the gardens for their engagement session. Their coordinating gothic […]

Elizabeth + Rebecca Elizabeth and Rebecca’s engagement session was a sweet and relaxed afternoon. Surrounded by trees and early summer flowers, they had a picnic together complete with strawberries and Deer Creek wine. As we explored Panther Hollow and the outside gardens around Phipps, there was laughter and dancing and some very, very nice weather.

Sabina + Sabia Sabina and Sabia chose to do a blend of engagement session venues: a lil’ bit of in-home and a lil’ bit of the ever-beautiful Highland Park. First, we began in their home, complete with walls of gorgeous art and a kitty who did not trust me one bit but who I love […]
