Wedding Bells…


My 2008 wedding season has officially ended! I shot my last wedding of the year a few weeks ago and am feeling like I’m just now catching my breath. This has been such an awesome year for me, the best one yet. I shot some amazing weddings, met so many great people, and even photographed a destination wedding in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania! I don’t know how, but I luck out time and time again with the most fabulous clients. I am truly blessed.

I’m currently booking weddings for 2009 and am beyond excited for what is shaping up to look like another great season. My big goal for 2009 is to book more destination weddings. I absolutely love traveling and shooting in new places and would love to see more of the country or world this year. If you know anyone who is planning on tying the knot in ’09, whether it is local or far flung, feel free to pass on this blog or my website. Who knows? We just may be a perfect match!

Speaking of my website, I’ve updated my homepage with some fun new shots from the last few months. Check it out HERE and let me know what you think!
