Olivia + David // Fernwood State Forest

Just a little over a year ago, I was one of David’s groomsmen in Olivia and David’s wedding. These two are some of my closest friends and I’m so happy I was able to capture some special frames for them as they welcome their first child into the world in a few weeks.

Before taking these maternity photos, I thought to myself how quickly life goes by. I remember how I first met both of them, I met Olivia freshman year of college and David not too long after. David and I were roommate in our semester abroad my sophomore year. Just two years later not only are they married, but they have a child on the way. This is a reminder to me to be thankful each and everyday for the gift of life!

We got on the road before 8am as we headed to Fernwood State Forest for their maternity shoot. IMG_9056IMG_9095 copyIMG_9145 copyIMG_9206IMG_9387IMG_9391IMG_9412IMG_9331IMG_9350IMG_9419IMG_9498IMG_9536 copyIMG_9578IMG_9588IMG_9640IMG_9695Here’s an extra for Olivia’s blog, check it out.

Rebecca + Joseph // Washington, DC

We went to Washington, DC to film the wedding of Rebecca + Joseph.

They had their ceremony and reception at Union Station, a couple blocks away from the Capital. It was a beautiful day filled with love and laughter.

The soundtrack for the film are two songs by U.S. Royalty, one of R + J’s favorite bands. They also made a surprise appearance at their reception and performed a few songs for them.

Hannah + James // Pittsburgh, PA

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

These photos are from Hannah and James’ engagement shoot in Pittsburgh. We went to the Southside and the Cathedral of Learning on a cold winter’s day but these two had no problem warming up to the camera. Enjoy.IMG_6694IMG_6818IMG_6887IMG_6906IMG_7014IMG_7073IMG_7216IMG_7300IMG_7338IMG_7524
