The Gorgeous couple is celebrating their one-year anniversary TODAY.
As a wedding photographer you see a lot of beautiful celebrations. They are all special and beautiful in their own way, but occasionally you’ll get to partake in one that is absolutely beyond words gorgeous… the kind you leave at the end of the day and whisper to your second shooter, ”If I could do it over again…”.
Cooper our sweet little man, you turn two today, and while I can’t believe it…your daddy and I are doing a little happy dance that for the first time in 4 years we are officially out of the baby stage...and we survived. You are just learning to talk (your first word was Hi!) and you can now hold your own in battles with your sister. You took your time walking, but are now running circles around us. We still have to work on that binky but we’ll get there. You make are hearts full and our family complete.
I don’t think there’s any denying that I’m a lil’ bit obsessed with my littles. I love shooting weddings, families, and just about any special event, but when I’m not clicking away capturing other’s beautiful moments I’m always craving capturing my own.
I really believe that life is all about collecting beautiful moments and I treasure every time I can get my wiggly, yet adorable, little rugrats to give me a smile or sweet candid moment in front of my lens.
Last weekend’s wedding at Lakeview Golf Resort and Spa in Morgantown, WV was absolutely stunning. Combine the perfect couple, a wonderful family, beautiful blue skies, a gorgeous floral wedding backdrop by Bella Fiore, and sunset photos at the 7th tee, and well, you have a perfect day.
I had the absolute best time hanging out with Nicole and Craig. Chatting about all the details of their upcoming wedding, their love story, and capturing these gorgeous sunrise photos were well worth the early morning wake up call.
What a beautiful celebration. This mother of 5 decided to join Rodan + Fields just 4 years ago to earn a bit of grocery money on the side. This incredible woman and female entrepreneur just reached Premiere Level V Lexus Achiever. Look at that beautiful car!
Even more inspiring, I was so incredibly impressed by all of these beautiful women at Joanne’s celebration. Did I mention beautiful? I hear they know of a great skin care line.
I knew Ashley and Scott's wedding day was going to be amazing after we first met. This incredibly sweet and genuine couple came to my home just after the New Year for a little meet and greet. We ended up talking for a little over three hours... and I think it's safe to say we hit it off. From that moment on, I was tickled to death excited to be their photographer and capture their big day.
Ben and Becca chose The Inn at Vint Hill in Warrenton, VA as their venue to say “I Do”, and it couldn’t have been more breathtaking. With the help of family and friends to create sentimental details like handmade wooden signs made by the grooms father and the Chuppah where Ben and Becca became man and wife along with the beautiful backdrops that The Inn at Vint Hill had to offer it’s no wonder their day came together perfectly. It was truly a team effort and family affair.
There’s something to be said about simplicity and sentimentality of joining together as husband and wife in your Grandparent’s home where you grew up, which is exactly what Gina and Elliot did. They said their I Do’s with their closest friends and family members in a space that encapsulates warm memories and tremendous love. It’s just too sweet to not get a little caught up in.
Our sweet little girl, it’s hard to believe you turn three today. I just laid you down for your daily nap and while I sit here reflecting on all of the wonderful little things I love about my little girl I find myself thankful that 1. I have you and your brother on the same schedule and 2. That I’m fortunate enough to be here everyday with you watching you learn and grow.
Thank you Sara and Matt for making your way out on a busy Pittsburgh weekday right in the midst of rush hour to make this session happen…you’re troopers! I can’t wait to see you in just one month for your big day!
