Vinberige Vineyards offered such a stunning backdrop for their wedding ceremony with gorgeous views of the vineyards. The Bride and Groom chose not to have a wedding party stand with them. I am finding that more couples are doing this and it does make for a … Read More Ben + Jessie Smith||Wedding||Vinberige Vineyards

Eddie and Kim’s Courthouse Elopement

For some people, a courthouse elopement may not seem ideal. But the stress, high stakes, and high expectations that come with an extravagant wedding does not sound fun at all for some couples.

Jaycee’s Newborn Session

When a new child is born, nothing is ever the same. Life for a parent and even grandparent is forever marked by this moment, and time is now measured in two halves: before and after the birth. I know this is true of my own life, and I can’t help but remember that the world itself is measured by a baby born in Bethlehem.  … Read More Jaycee’s Newborn Session

That one time I almost died!

  This story began 27 years ago. Some of our friends from church organized a rafting trip to Ohiopyle, Pa. We were going to take a ride down the Youghioheny River and navigate some Class III and IV rapids! “Let’s do this!” said the naive 23 year old me. My sister-in-law nervously asked me if I was afraid. “Heck no! This is going to … Read More That one time I almost died!

DIY Newborn Photography

So many of us have been affected by COVID-19. My heart and prayers go out to you! I recently had to turn down a newborn session and I felt so torn about it. Part of me really wanted to go and document this time for them (for a brief second). But I believe that would be irresponsible for me as a photographer, an American, … Read More DIY Newborn Photography
