We were referred to Melissa and Matthew by a wedding we did last year. This meant a lot to us we love when brides refer us to their friends. We always had a great time working with Melissa and Matt from their engagement session throwing paint around to their horror movie zombie shot for Matt. Matt loves his horror movies and we wanted to get him one shot for him. Melissa and Matt’s wedding was held just outside the Pittsburgh area. The ceremony was held at Saint Alphonus and the reception was held at the Futules Harmar House. The Futules Harmar House did the catering as well. Both locations were very nice. The bar area of the Futules Harmar House was really cool as soon as I saw that I know I wanted to make a scene there and set up a cafe’ setup with the bridal party. We were able to get so many great photos of there wedding we had a great time reliving it during the viewing. Congratulations Melissa and Matt it was a pleasure working with you Thank you.

Brittany and Todd found us by searching on the Google for local wedding photographers for their wedding. They were getting married in Butler PA with the reception being held at the Aubrey’s golf course. During the engagment session we took the time to get to know Brittany and Todd and any concerns they had. After the day of shooting we later bought them back to the studio to veiw their engagement pictures I remember Brittany was stunned she loved the pictures and told us she never looks good in any pictures she is in and she looks great. I love hearing and seeing how much people love their pictures we take for them. The day of the wedding We started shooting our details and the bride. Brittany and her dress looked great. I love details and the scarf and gloves she had with the dress fit so perfectly. They had a very nice ceremony at Saint Pauls in Butler PA. The day was a little rainey but we managed to dodge the drops for some great outside pictures for them as well. When We showed up to Aubreys golf course it was raining again. We took so pictures under some cover after a bit we were able to get out on the course for some more pictures. Everyone loaded up on the golf carts trying not to get stuck while driving. We had a very wet season and everything went great. After some fun out on the course we headed back to the reception we everyone had a great time. There were always people on the dance floor dancing or just having plan fun. After the wedding we envited Brittany and Todd to our studio to veiw the wedding again. Brittnay did not show up at first Todd and his mother in law came and veiwed our slide-show of the wedding and called Brittany to come over. When she joined us we viewed the slide-show again and tears rolled down her face. It was tears of joy she loved everything she said she know she was going to cry and didn’t want us to see her cry. She loved everything more than she thought she would. We would like to say Congratulations to Brittany and Todd and thank you for letting us be appart of your big day. If you would like to see how they felt please visit the testimonial page to read their kind words.

It’s that time of year again, whether its your first year or last, the first day of school is alway exciting!

This year our son, Dean, started kindergarten at Seneca Valley’s Evans City Elementary. It was such an exciting day for us all! Dan was working, but I did my best to document the day.

As we start to receive calls to book Senior Portrait Sessions I realized how important these photos will soon be, and decided to share them with all of you and remind you to capture these moments as they breeze by!


Alli was watching over his school clothes and greeted him as soon as he woke up that morning wishing him luck on his first day of school!


Everyone knows you have to look your best for the first day of school – wardrobe is everything!


After hair and cologne it was time to pack it in, everything had to be just right


Then it was time for a healthy lunch and phone calls from family wishing him luck.


and after a sad ‘good-bye’ to his baby brother he was off to school!


Then what seemed like moments later baby brother and I went to wait for him at the bus stop. FirstDay-16

Brother, Van felt he had better things to do…


But finally a happy Dean came off the bus so quickly I basically missed it! But he had a great day and already made new friends!



It really was a great day and I swear I didn’t even cry! I’m sure his senior year I won’t be able to hold it together as well as I did this year but at least I’ll always have these photos to cherish year after year!

If your little one, isn’t quite so little anymore, don’t forget to book a senior portrait session now before fall slips by!

Welcome to Natalie and Daniel Hall’s wedding in Pittsburgh PA. Our wedding season kicks off early this year with this lovely couple on January 17, 2015. Natalie was such an amazing bride not only beautiful but full of emotion. We had fun creating stunning pictures of their wedding day with the use of natural light as well off camera flash. Even though the ceremony went longer than planned we made enough time for some fun pictures trough out the night.

Both Natalie and Daniel are amazing the love they share just shines. Now they weren’t the only ones that shined that day. Daniel’s daughter Grace gave the best speech of the night one that could make you laugh and cry one that was filled with truth and love for her father and her new mother. What a way to start off a reception from the speeches to the people, from the wedding dress to the rings. The details of their wedding day turned into works of art and memories that can be handed down in time. Thank you for letting us be apart of your day. Thank you for letting us capture the moments that breeze by.
