Pittsburgh, PA Wedding Photographer, Engagement Photos and more.
Professional Photographer | Pittsburgh, PA
After over a decade of specializing in photographing weddings, I still get excited for every single "I-do"! I shoot between 25 to 30 weddings a year plus engagement sessions, anniversaries, portraits and more. The main focus of my art is photographing natural moments. I love catching glimpses of authentic expressions. Candid photos are key! But when the timing is right, I'll take the lead for some classic posed portraits.
I like to start off by sharing the story of when I was in your shoes on the other side of the camera. This began after my now husband Russ proposed on Valentine's Day 2020. It was all very exciting so we really took our time to enjoy the wedding planning process. We considered all the possibilities, like whether we wanted a small intimate wedding or to book a ritzy venue and invite everyone we know. We ended up meeting in the middle.
We got married at Phipps Conservatory and it was beyond perfect. I'm so glad we took our time planning - at no point did we rush into any decision making and it all came together very organically and in a way that felt just like us.
This experience has given me even more love for my job. How lucky am I that I get to take part in one of the most special days of my clients' lives? I've learned to savor the moments and that simple is sometimes better. I admire when couples so easily brush off all the overcomplicated wedding expectations shown in bridal magazines and on social media. Instead, we can celebrate what's truly meaningful, whatever that may be for you. And when the bride and groom are happy, everyone is happy! Especially the photographer.
Some of the professional characteristics that I value most are reliability, sensitivity, artistry, skill and experience. When all those boxes are checked, it makes it easy to relax and have a good time with my clients!
