Sean & Dominica | Volant, PA Engagement

I first met Sean and Dominica at Sean’s sister’s barn wedding last year and was thrilled when they contacted me earlier this year about taking their engagement photographs.  We set a date in April and hoped for cooperative weather, which is quite a gamble during spring in western Pennsylvania. Gratefully though, we had the most beautiful, partly cloudy evening!  We wandered to a few favorite spots in Volant and I had such a wonderful time getting to know these two a bit more. Sean and Dominica are just lovely - unassuming, kind, laid-back - and they share such a beautiful, warm relationship.  Photographing them was a joy! 

Vera | Grove City Family Photography

I have some sweet photographs of baby Vera to share today!  I first photographed this little gal when she was just a few days old, making it an added delight to see her peaceful, inquisitive demeanor and big blue eyes at six months old. She’s a beauty! And, despite fighting a little head cold, she was such a trooper during our time together and so full of expression. Enjoy a few of my favorite frames! 

Michael & Rachel | Pittsburgh Marriott North Wedding

This was such a delightful wedding with which to start off our season and I can’t think of a better way to break in our new blog! Michael and Rachel are some of the loveliest people we’ve photographed - welcoming, earnest, joyful - and their wedding was such a fitting reflection.  Surrounded by their dearest family and friends (some of whom had flown all the way here from England!), Michael and Rachel joined their hands in marriage before God and hosted a very joyous dinner-and-dance celebration. And despite the cold winds (most notably felt during portrait time!), the sun peeked out with its beautiful spring intensity and everything flowed flawlessly. It was our joy to help document such an unforgettable day in Rachel & Michael’s family story. We hope you enjoy a few of our favorite frames from this lovely wedding.
