This class will focus on the basics of photography and understanding lighting. Other class instruction may vary based on what topics are of the most interest to the students.

Ludwig Wedding Day – Ebensburg, PA Wedding Photographer

I really got to know this couple during their engagement session in State College last summer. One thing is not hard to see, they love each other and they love Penn State football!

They got married in the height of fall in Nicktown PA. It was nice to not have to travel far to get such beautiful pictures. This wedding was a good time from start to finish. We had a blast with their wedding party during the group photos. We even had a “guest” crash their couple photos. A friendly goat followed us around for all of their pictures (he loved her bouquet). Trust me this is real, I couldn’t make this stuff up!

They planned their wedding on a Saturday in the heart of football season. But because the couple didn’t want to miss the game for themselves or their guests, Top Dog Productions had the game broadcast live from the reception hall. Now those are good fans (and good DJs)! I wish them many happy years and lots of tailgating together:)

The vendors I had the pleasure of working with:

DJ – Top Dog

Florist – Florals on the Corner

Mulcahy Wedding Day – Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

I met this wonderful couple for the first time for their engagement session. They we’re both standout college athletes and we immediately began talking sports. I instantly connected with them as a couple. Not only is Andrea a beautiful person but she is also an amazing basketball coach in New York. Their situation was unique because they are both not from Pittsburgh. Because their families are from different states they picked Pittsburgh as a meeting point in the middle. It was great to see all of their friends and family that made the journey to Pittsburgh. I was so honored to take part in this amazing celebration of two beautiful people!

A special note on one of the vendors:

Strittmatter Styles (owned by Alisha Strittmatter my fabulous sister- in-law) provided the flawless airbrush make-up and hair for this wedding. I can not stress how important it is for brides to invest in a good make-up artist! You can thank me later after you see the results;)

The vendors I had the pleasure working with at this wedding:

Hair and Make-up – Strittmatter Styles

DJ – Lea Guarino

Florist – Sherry Kai

Dress – Pronovias is the designer

Bodenschatz Wedding Day – Ebensburg, PA Wedding Photographer

This is the third Bodenschatz wedding that I have had the pleasure of shooting. The girls in this family are stunningly beautiful! Seriously, this must be the best looking family reunion ever:)My job could not have been easier. These two could have been models! The couple had the perfect romantic chemistry. I hardly had to pose them. Everything was perfect and natural.

Not only is this bride stunning, her make-up is flawless. Another happy airbrush make-up client from Strittmatter Styles. When you look at magazine ads and Pinterest photo sensations and want “that look” you need more than just a good photographer (although that is a must too!). You need professional make-up and styling. Photoshop can only do so much!

Vendors I had the pleasure of working with:

DJ – Casey Castel

Florist – Florals on the Corner

Make-up – Strittmatter Styles

Dress – MB Bride

Decorations – Wedding Elegance By Joelle
