Kayla & Michael

I first met Kayla at the Bridal Expo in January. After hitting it off immediately, I was so happy when she contacted me to photograph her wedding.
We had a great time at Spring Creek Park for their engagement session - it was a warm summer day, perfect for cooling off in the water, stolen kisses, and just being kids at heart.
I can't wait to be a part of Kayla and Michael's wedding day!

Enjoy the teasers...

Seniors Seniors Seniors!!!

Yep, it is that time of year - and I LOVE it!!! The 2011 seniors are getting ready for their last year of High School, and of course that means having their Senior Portraits done. Want more information about getting your senior portraits taken - just contact me at!

Kaitlyn started off my senior season, and we had such a great time yesterday at Hintz Gardens and downtown State College. She has such a great sense of style and the coolest hair ever - there simply wasn't a pose I could put her in where she wouldn't look good. I think our final location (the red fire escape) was a bit of a surprise to them, but it just photographs so well! And you should have seen me wrestling that chair in and out of my little car - it fits, but barely.

Enjoy just a tiny taste!

Love Conquers All...

There was a time when Jen and Dan did not know if they would ever reach their wedding day. A sever accident left Dan in the hospital and the couple facing the fact that they would have to put their wedding on hold. A year and a half later they overcame all adversity by leaning on each other and focusing on the future that lay ahead.

This December turned July wedding held hints of Christmas in July but only if you knew to look for them. Every detail fell into place beautifully with flowers by Woodrings provided for both the ceremony at Our Lady of Victory and the reception at the Nittany Country Club.

As you can see, Dan and Jen love each other and love to have fun. Dan kept April and I laughing all day long with non stop hilarity, only Jen's enthralling descent down the aisle could awe him to silence.

I wish you a long and smooth road ahead!

Can't Beat the Real Thing

Coke may have said it, but the adage is true - you can't beat the real thing;
Real Love
Real Commitment
Real Family
Real Joy

Amanda and Joey's wedding was simply brimming with real moments. The type of moments that simply make you catch your breath and forget for just a second that the world keeps moving, and time keeps passing, and oh yeah - you have a job to do, so stop standing around all misty eyed!

I knew when I photographed their engagement session last fall on Penn State's campus, that this was a couple whose wedding I would love every second of - and I was not disappointed.

For those not familiar, the Scotch Valley Country Club is well worth the drive for anyone living in the Altoona area. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is friendly, and I simply love the windows in the ballroom.

Enjoy a small sampling, and may God bless your new life together!
