Danielle and Seth--e-session

It was a beautiful evening to head down to the North Shore in Pittsburgh to meet Danielle and Seth for their e-session. Danielle mentioned wanting to get pictures by Heinz Field and I immediately started thinking about all of the other fun places around the stadium that would be great for pictures. Also, by the river with city as a background...Wow! I was excited to get down there again and play! I had so much fun and could have taken more pictures than I did. I had to stop though...we were running out of light. :) Thanks to you both, Danielle and Seth, for spending the evening with me for the session! I hope you had fun...I know I did!

I am so happy for you both and I look forward to these two Steelers fans' wedding in October! Enjoy the last few months of preparation. Since it will be here before we know it, I will see you both very soon!

Note: The link at the end of the video will not be active until next week. Once I get all of the pictures uploaded to the gallery, I will open it up and anyone can see it... if Danielle and Seth share the password with you. ;-)

Eric's Senior Picture Session

Eric is getting ready for his final year of high school so we headed out to get some pictures to remember this important year! We hit a few fun places for these pictures which you will see in the video below. I also had the opportunity to photograph Eric last December at his brother's wedding. So much fun!

Thanks again to Eric's mom for the assist with lenses during the session! :) I hope you all enjoy the photos. I had fun taking them!

Eric, best wishes for a fantastic senior year!

Richard and Jackie--July 11, 2009

I met with Jackie and Richard this past spring for their e-session and, once again, was surprised at how quickly these wedding dates arrive! I have know Richard for some time now and I can honestly say that Jackie is marrying a great guy. After meeting Jackie in the spring and spending time with them on Saturday, I feel that Richard has found an amazing wife too!

Betsy's Barn at Cheeseman's Farm located in Portersville, PA was the location for this wedding. The setting was so pretty! We did have a worry about the weather, so the ceremony was moved inside from the gazebo. Their ceremony was performed by people who really seemed to know them from their days at Allegheny College, which made it very sweet and special. I think everyone had a nice time during the reception...talking and laughing...catching up with one another...some dancing too. Before the reception, the weather cooperated so we could go outside and get some beautiful pictures in this setting and I think we all had fun while getting those pictures. Below is a video of some of the moments from the day. The galleries link from it will take you to the correct website. Keep checking back for the pictures to be posted!

Richard and Jackie, I wish you a lifetime of happiness together! Best wishes, always!

Jake and Shannon--July 4, 2009

The Fourth of That describes this day! Shannon and Jake had such a great day for their wedding with so many friends and family attending. The church was full and the reception was lots of fun! So many people were there to celebrate the love this couple has. I asked Donia to help with this wedding since she is so great! (Click her name to go to a video of the day on her blog too!)

On our way to the reception, we stopped at the lake by Penn State-Beaver and took a bunch of pictures there of the wedding party and then some really sweet ones of Shannon and Jake. Below is a video of just a handful of the pictures from their day. I wish you, Shannon and Jake, the most amazing life as a married couple!

Carly and Mike's e-session

Carly and Mike met me at the gazebo in Ellwood City's Ewing Park area. We took a few quick pictures there and then headed on to the nature trail. We also got to take some pictures with the firetrucks since Mike is a volunteer firefighter. Very cool!

These two are just nice, nice people. I really enjoyed talking with them about how they met and about their wedding plans. I have to say that I love how relaxed they are with everything. I really think these two will enjoy the whole process involved in planning and just getting to their wedding day! Enjoy it you two! It goes so fast!

Below is a little video with some of the images. I will be playing with them beginning next week and upload the final versions during the week of July 5th. For now, I hope you, Carly and Mike, enjoy this! I am really looking forward to taking your wedding pictures next spring!
