Alaina & Alex | Weirton WV Weddings | 2017

I’ve known Alaina since she was a little girl. She’s now a beautiful young woman who married her soul mate. Alex is perfect and together they are magic! Their wedding took place at Sacred Heart of Mary (Weirton, WV) on a crisp, yet beautifully sunlit day on March 11th. After the ceremony, their elegant reception took place at the St. Florian Hall in Wintersville, OH. Catering by Piergallini’s, Flowers by Fern Landesberg-Myers, music and entertainment by the fabulous Jonathan Mihellis of Finest Events.

This one in Dublin, Ohio – nestled in a beautiful shopping area that I only wish I’d had a little more time to explore! I had the joy of photographing talented “Veggy Artist” James Parker and Buddy Valastro (Cake Boss). Sincere thanks to Preston Ciranni of the NFM Group for hiring me – I truly enjoy the opportunity to shoot something completely different from the “norm”. I’ll admit, it’s also pretty cool working closely with some pretty awesome celebrities too! Here’s the link to all our photos and a few to post as well!

Pittsburgh, PA Wedding Photographer…Kate & Rod | Weddings

Weddings this Summer and Fall are plentiful for us and we’ve been busy shooting, editing and posting beautiful images! I am slightly behind with the website bog posts – so I am trying to play catch up. We shot the wedding of Kate and Rod mid June and we knew this one would be different. Having worked with Kate and Rod shooting their e-session last summer, I knew that their wedding day would be one filled with laughter and fun. What a great group!

Weirton, WV Wedding Photographer…Rebranding Complete! | Personal

The process of our new web-site, our Re-branding and Logo design began in September of last year and I am happy to say we are finally ALL done! Kudos to Peter Stern and Paul Stern of Wordfresh for our fabulous site and a big THANKS and happy sigh to Emily Mawbry of Sparrow Ink Design for the re-branding and logo design. I love, love, love my new logo and user friendly site [insert smiley face here!]. Paul was absolutely wonderful to work with – walked me through the process and even taught me a few things along the way as well. Without Emily, my design concept would still be stuck in my head. Emily not only helped me with that concept, but also had me write her a BOOK on myself, what I wanted out of my logo, my favorite color, what fonts I liked, etc. She asked me too about my personality and hobbies in order to get a general feel for who I am as a person in order to come up with exactly what was in my head! [How’d she get in there?!?!] Here are some photos of the new logo – and of course, if you are here, you’re already on the new site! Thank you so much Paul and Emily – I am a happy camper!
