Sunnehanna Country Club Wedding, Britt & Chris

Britt and Chris were married the Saturday after Christmas at Our Mother of Sorrows in Johnstown Pennsylvania with a reception following at Sunnehanna Country Club. It was a very chilly day but these two braved the cold and wind during their first look and it was apparent they were more than happy for the day to finally be here and to be marrying their person. The cathedral church was still decorated for Christmas which lent to the festive feel of the day, while the reception was covered with candlelight, gingerbread houses (homemade by the bride’s sister!) and soft greenery. And their cake was one of the most beautiful I’ve seen with a winter scene decorated on to the sides of it.

Britt and Chris are both sweet and kind and it was simply a joy to celebrate with them. It was a wedding day full of love, celebration and warmth. Please take a look at some of my favorite images below!

Special thanks to Jamie Leonard Photography for second shooting this day with me. Some of her images are mixed in above!

And thanks to all of these great vendors as well!

National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. Engagement Session

When I realized that Lisa and Oliver lived in Washington D.C., despite the Pittsburgh PA wedding and celebration they're planning for later this fall, I jumped at the chance to head to D.C. to photograph their engagement session.  Our plans got waylaid.. twice.  The session was first scheduled in the spring but needed to be rescheduled when we realized the Pittsburgh Penguins (go figure!) would be in D.C. to play the Capitals in the playoffs.  We rescheduled for mid summer in hopes of lovely warm weather and lots of wandering around monuments.  When the weekend planned called for torrential downpours instead, Lisa and Oli didn't let that get them down and instead decided we'd move indoors to the National Gallery of Art - and I am so glad we did!  It may have been raining buckets outside, but we were cozy and able to take our time strolling through the galleries and getting some awesome shots among the artwork and architecture. 

Thanks so much you two for letting me capture these for you!  It was so fun and I'm excited for October!
