Since I’ll be in charge of preserving the memories of the biggest day of your life, I can’t say enough about why you should consider scheduling an engagement photo session with me. When you think about it, you’ll probably spend most of your wedding day with me. When you’re getting ready, when you’re about to see each other for the first time, the ceremony, the reception and all the moments in between. So we need to get to know each other, and the engagement session is the perfect way to do just that!

This is a time when it’s just the two of you playing together, having fun, cuddling and kissing, while also getting some special, relaxed photos that are perfect for Save the Dates, gift ideas, and reception decorating.

Here’s a sampling from some of my favorite engagement sessions.

For the past 15 years, I’ve had the honor of photographing the incredibly talented Penn State Blue Band. There’s nothing quite like walking into Beaver Stadium on a beautiful autumn day, and even when the seats are empty, the place has an energy buzzing within it. Then when the over 300-piece band enters, the fun really begins! We come up with creative photo ideas and I get to experience their amazing group dynamic and teamwork—it is truly a unique and memorable time!
Under the direction of the extraordinarily talented Greg Drane, the Penn State Blue Band continues to be recognized as one of the nation’s top college marching bands—energizing hundreds of thousands of people each year. Hail to the Lions and the Blue Band—thank you for your dedication and all you do for Penn State!
And a special thanks goes out to my assistant Dave Mengle.

The sun was shining down on Daniele and Zack and their beautiful summer wedding. It was a perfect day for an even more perfect couple. Their love story started at PSU, so they chose the Penn State Arboretum for their wedding ceremony, which provided a lovely backdrop. Their special touches included gorgeous blue and white flowers by the always artistic Daniel Vaughn Designs, with elegant accent pieces paying tribute to their alma mater (right down to the groomsmen’s Nittany Lion socks!).

We did a fun tour of some of the classic hot spots around campus, which made for spectacular photos—including a cameo at the Nittany Lion shrine by their dog Tucker. Congratulations to this beautiful couple!

It’s not everyday we get a chance to shoot a wedding in an iconic downtown location, so we were super excited for Liliana and Brian’s ceremony at the State Theatre. Some years ago, Brian used to work part-time at the theatre while attending Penn State, thus giving him the idea of holding the ceremony there. And, Liliana’s family came all the way from Peru, with some of them not even speaking English, providing quite a mix of cultures at their celebration.

The weather on Phoebe and Andrew’s mid-November wedding day was a bit more dramatic than they planned for. The day before their wedding, the area experienced a surprising 12 inch snowfall! It was beautiful though, with many of the trees on the Penn State campus still sporting their autumn colors, creating a lovely backdrop for their outdoor photo sessions. Even with the temperature in the low to mid-twenties, the bridal party still had a blast and made the most of the colorful scenery.

After the photos at Old Main, we all headed up to the top of Centre Hall mountain to celebrate Phoebe and Andrew’s ceremony and reception at the beautiful Above the Valley Event Center!

I’ve had the honor of taking the official Penn State Marching Blue Band portraits for the past 14 years and it’s truly a unique and special experience. It’s hard to describe the feeling of stepping into an empty Beaver Stadium on a late summer day—just before football season kicks off—to photograph one of the best college marching bands in the nation.

The stadium is so powerful, even when the seats are empty, and when the 300-piece band enters and performs their sound check, I’m blown away! It’s always a fun day and I love the opportunity to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the camaraderie and teamwork between this incredibly talented group of artists.

With 119 years of tradition, the Blue Band is an integral part of creating the legendary Penn State game-day experience—entertaining and energizing hundreds of thousands of Nittany Lion fans each year. Their musical and marching precision is unmatched and the band’s quality continues to increase under the exceptional leadership of director Gregory Drane.

Thanks to the Blue band members, staff, and my assistant Kristina Brownshire for a truly memorable day! WE ARE…grateful for your talent, dedication and all you do for Penn State!

State College Arts Fest Announcement!

While my blog posts often focus on weddings, I also specialize in fine art photography. This year, I’m honored to be selected as one of only 30 photographers exhibiting at the acclaimed annual Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts! For those who’ve spent time in State College, you know how special Arts Fest weekend is—four days of fun, food and, of course, exceptional art.

Receiving over 1,000 applicants each year, this nationally-renowned fine arts show features 300 talented artists from across the country and attracts over 125,000 people. This year’s show will take place from July 11-15 in State College, Pennsylvania.

While Arts Fest will be commemorating its 52nd anniversary, I’ll be celebrating my 28th appearance at the show. Check out my Penn State portfolio gallery for a glimpse of what I’ll be showcasing this year. And if you’re in State College for the show, stop by booth number A-74 (near the corner of Allen and Fairmount streets) to say hello!

At-home lifestyle photography shoots are such a unique experience and I had a great time capturing the love between this family (in and around their State College, PA, home)! Lifestyle and portrait photography sessions are all about the connection. It’s about documenting those everyday moments you wish you could freeze in time and remember forever…the ones you sometimes take for granted as time inevitably flies by. Having these “day in the life” photo sessions makes me really pause to appreciate and enjoy the simple things that make life so special and make us so happy—holding hands, spending time with loved ones, and having fun with our furry companions. Thanks to Adrienne, Geoff, Robin (Adrienne’s mother) and their adorable dog for hiring me and reminding me about the things that matter most in life!

To everything, there is a season…

Spring and fall are my favorite times of year in State College and I was inspired to get outside and capture nature’s beautiful transformation at some of my favorite spots around town and on the Penn State campus. There’s something exciting about these times of change and it reminds me of how much I love living in a place that experiences all four seasons.

It also marks the beginning (and end) of so many things in our area—new semesters, new people, new sports and events, and new opportunities. The one constant in life we can count on is change and the seasons of the year illustrate this point beautifully.
