“We’re sortof a big, awkward, tight-knit family.”

This is how Matt and Allie describe their newly-formed family of four. Soon after Matt and Allie got married, they wanted a companion for Matt’s English Bulldog Giuseppe, and Lois the Frenchie puppy was the perfect fit! Matt says, “Thankfully our plan to provide a companion for Giuseppe worked and they are now best friends. It would have been pretty devastating if it backfired on us!”

Lois and Giuseppe live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and their daily routine includes sleeping, wrestling, eating, and taking a daily walk to the Williamsburg pier. “They’re practically inseparable,” says Matt.

It was a joy photographing these two New York City bulldogs. This is a glimpse into their world.

When I first met Amanda and Jonathan, we talked about our common love for the Strip District and had a wonderful time documenting their relationship before marriage. When their wedding day finally arrived, it was one of the most beautiful days of the year, and it took place in one of my FAVORITE venues in the city: The Renaissance Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. It was a gorgeous, classy day, and we were so thankful to be part of it.

Here are a few favorite images from their day. Enjoy!!

Holly and Neil’s wedding day was one of the most classy, sweet, loving, FUN days I’ve ever documented. From the minute we showed up, we were welcomed into their day as if we were family, and it was such a joy photographing their love. The wedding began at St. Mary’s on the beautiful Mount Washington, and the reception was held at the stunning Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh.

Holly and Neil, thank you for inviting us to be part of your day. It was truly beautiful in every way.

Ever since traveling to Chicago to photograph Crystal and Mike’s engagement, we have been SO excited for their wedding day to arrive! When it finally did, it was a gorgeous, fun day with a chapel ceremony, a beautiful outdoor reception, and the most amazing dance party I have ever seen!

Crystal and Mike, thank you so much to you and your families for welcoming us so warmly into your day. It was so much fun to document, and most of all, it was a joy spending time with both of you again.

Lauren and Brendan’s wedding day was so incredibly beautiful from start to finish… from the stunning St. Bernards ceremony to our sunny portrait session to the elegant Longue Vue Club reception, every detail was perfect. These two did not stop smiling all day, and it was a JOY to document their love.

Lauren and Brendan, I can’t thank you enough for being YOU. You made our jobs so easy and fun, and I am so excited for you to see a preview of your photos. :)

I knew Allison and Mike were going to be a good fit for us when they emailed to introduce themselves and to tell us about their adorable puggle named Ella! We were sad that Ella couldn’t make the wedding, but we were SO excited to work with Allison and Mike and to document their beautiful day. The wedding ceremony took at Heinz Chapel in Oakland and the reception was at the University of Pittsburgh’s beautiful University Club terrace and ballroom.

Allison and Mike, thank you so much for treating us like old friends and for welcoming us to tell the story of your day. Your family and friends were so kind, and we had a wonderful time celebrating with you. Here are a few favorites from your day!

Rachel and Chris just celebrated their three-year anniversary living in a sweet little apartment in NYC’s Upper East Side. They moved to New York City for Chris to go to medical school, and since they might be leaving the city soon to pursue residency, they wanted photos to remember their time here!

Rachel and Chris, we had such a wonderful time hanging out with you two and being introduced to your favorite spots in NYC. Here are a few photos from our time together.
