Julie and Eyad were such a joy to work with! We met on a fall evening on the campus of Franciscan University of Steubenville for their engagement session and I loved chatting with them about what they do and where they are from! Julie is from close by, just across the river in Weirton, WV but Eyad is from a little further away…….Jerusalem! How cool is that?!? I told them that it’s the one place in the world that I MUST go to before I die! I’ve never been and it’s at the top of my bucket list!

You know when you meet someone, even over social media, and you instantly know you could be best friends with them? That’s how I felt when Brianna first messaged me about photographing her wedding next June. When we met them in downtown Pittsburgh for their engagement session, I just KNEW we would be the perfect fit for them and their wedding! They are a joyful and genuine couple who love the Lord and each other so deeply. They were SUCH a dream to photograph!

About two weeks ago I got one of the best phone calls ever. I know that’s a pretty big statement but this was some pretty big news. I got a call from Will, who was dating one of my closest, dearest and most treasured friends that I’ve known for a decade. Allie and I met during the summer before our freshman year. So we have literally known each other for 10 amazing years. Allie is one of those people that will change you and inspire you after just one conversation. She is a truly beautiful soul and I am telling you, one of the most genuine and loyal friends I have ever met. She will laugh with you, cry with you, just be with you. And when she began dating Will, I just KNEW that she had found her future husband. I literally have never seen Allie happier than when she is with Will. He is so perfect for her and I am very pleased that he is a fellow HUGE Disney fan! Do I anticipate Schaefer and Davis family trips to Disney World…yes I do!
