It’s remarkable for people to have a lasting relationship when they meet at a bar (even more remarkable when your sibling met their spouse in the same way). Imagine if it was your birthday and someone wearing formal wear showed up with a friend. That’s what happened on Kelly’s birthday when Tim came to her party wearing a tuxedo. The story is so remarkable, in fact, that it was recounted on the wedding day at least four times! What a lovely story to share,

Following their wedding ceremony at St. John and Paul Catholic Church, Kelly and Tim enjoyed their wedding reception at Kelly’s alma mater, Duquesne University Power Center. Guests got to hear the story of Kelly and Tim’s meeting once more in a lovely introduction by Jonny Hartwell from Kelli Burns Entertainment.

I was honored to have Nicki’s help once more for this beautiful wedding day.

Congratulations, Kelly and Tim!

    Your willingness to take not only your photos, but to take our cameras and take photos for us. how generous you were. THANK YOU. Sincerely Hugh McElroy (your biggest fan)

Taresa and Nick were friends before they started their romantic relationship. It’s so great to marry your best friend! They’re planning their wedding for this October at the Pittsburgh Field Club. Earlier this month, we set out into Pittsburgh’s Strip District and North Shore for a beautiful afternoon of photography. What a sunset!!!

Congratulations, Taresa and Nick!

Lesley and Trey chose my favorite time of year for their wedding. It is my favorite time of year because it is the same weekend that I was married to my husband! What a great way to spend your time in the middle of September.

Trey couldn’t have done a more thorough job of “recruiting” Lesley for their relationship. They met when Trey was on a professional recruiting trip and Lesley was one of the candidates. She got the job, and later they started dating. They were married at the beautiful St. Vincent Basilica in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. They celebrated their reception with wonderful entertainment by Round Midnight.

Many thanks to The Event Group for all of their planning and hard work to make the event flawless. And to Nicki for here assistance and images.

Congratulations Lesley and Trey!



Jesideh and Keon contacted me last winter about photographing their wedding at Armstrong Farms’ Fieldstone Barn. I was surprised to learn that they had no connection to Western Pennsylvania, but were looking for a nice getaway from New Jersey/New York for themselves and their guests. Luckily (for me), they chose me to be their wedding photographer.

Their wedding day was full of joy! They requested that their guests refrain from using phones and cameras during the ceremony so they could fully enjoy the emotions of the event. It was lovely to see the bridal procession with smiling faces on either side of Jesideh! Even more joy came from Jesideh and Keon’s independently written, but amazingly parallel wedding vows. It was fun to see a couple celebrate so openly, candidly together for so long, celebrating at every moment.

I’m so honored to share these photos today. Many thanks to Nicki for her photographs, support, and general awesomeness.

Congratulations, Jesideh and Keon!
