BABY'S FIRST YEAR - Marin Paige - Newborn

It brings a smile to my face and warmth to my heart to watch a family grow over the years that we photograph them.  Five years ago, we captured Bryan & Julie's wedding, three years ago we photographed the milestone of 2 becoming 3 with Graeme's birth, and this Summer 3 became 4...Welcome to the Smith Family, Marin =)

Vince Sarah - Engagement Session

One of my favorite things about connecting with a Bridal Party on the wedding day is starting a relationship that shifts from Bridesmaid or Groomsman to our next Bride or Groom!  Vince was in a wedding that Sam & I photographed a few years ago...and that couple was part of one of our previous year's bridal party...and them before that...and them before that!! It's a cycle that I LOVE ;) And is always so fun to visit with our past couples at new weddings =) Can't wait to see the gang at Vince & Sarah's wedding next year!

WEDDING - Josh & Jordan - The Lakemont Casino - Altoona, PA

11 years ago, I was a Youth Group leader at Tri County Church and started with a new group of teen girls for the school year.  Little did I know that one of those girls would not only transition from being a youth student to a youth leader by my side, but even further down the road, I would be photographing her wedding =) What a joy, honor, and privilege.  Love you bunches, Jordan and I am so excited to see the joy & love in your eyes ALL DAY yesterday as you married the man of your prayers!!!

WEDDING - Andrew & Rachel - General Potter Farm

Yesterday's wedding was beyond gorgeous with its rustic elegance in every detail. But the reason it was this photographer's dream to be a part of, was to be the one to capture a second daughter's wedding that held such meaning to the family.  And at the end of the day, to be able to stand on the dance floor with the bride and her mother, watching our Reception Screening, and crying together at how much Rachel looked like her big sister Abby on her wedding day that we photographed 4 years ago.  Abby was remembered in so many ways yesterday with little touches, but her presence was felt largely in the hearts of Rachel's friends, family, and mine =)

WEDDINGS - Michael & Anne - Heinz Chapel, Pittsburgh PA

Yesterday's wedding with Michael & Anne was not only held in 2 gorgeous venues (Heinz Chapel and The Pittsburgh Athletic Association), but it also was filled with love, laughter, and family traditions!  From standing on their chairs to kiss when guests cheered them at the Reception, every woman coming to kiss Michael on the cheek when Anne left the room during dinner, cutting TWO cakes (American & Danish), and cutting Michael's socks at the end of the night, so that Anne can prove herself a worthy wife by sewing them back together ;) If the traditions weren't enough to make your wedding beyond special, the constant love in your eyes for each other was!

SAM RACHEL - Gender Reveal Luau

After how much fun we had during our first Gender Reveal Party, when we became pregnant this year, I couldn't wait to plan another!!!  Last time, we threw a Football Themed party as it was Fall and Steelers season, but this time 20 weeks hit with the Summer heat ;) And I thought, let's celebrate Baby Lim Hawaiian style with a Gender Reveal Luau =D

WEDDINGS - Mason & Kayla - The Sunset Room, Elizabeth PA

WOW, I feel like you can't get much hotter than Mason & Kayla's 90+ degree, high humidity wedding yesterday...but just look how GORGEOUS these outdoor photos are with blue skies & green grass...it makes all the sweat worth it ;) An intimate wedding filled with little quirks, like Harry Potter referenced vows and bride & groom matching Converse sneakers, made this wedding truly unique and unforgettable!

FAMILIES - The Walkers

After shooting Abigail & Eleanor's baby photos and then watching them both grow up over the years with photo shoot after photo shoot, it sadly came to an end when The Walkers moved down South =(  Imagine both Shea AND my's delight, when she said they had a trip back up to PA planned over Mother's Day weekend. For what could possibly be our last photo shoot together, it was filled with play & wonder between these two sisters...perfect! =)
