Working in Pittsburgh, PA, my hometown, and Metro Washington, my favorite city next to London, provides a very unique mixture of people, styles, food and of course sports. I want this portion of my site to share with future and repeat clients, friends and family, new and exciting experiences and people. It will also provide an mirror into the person behind the camera that you will be working with.
Please join in with your Rave’s & Fave’s, and photos… I love an adventure!

Jiyoung and Jeff
Engagement and Korean Wedding
Jiyoung and Jeff Stone, Venue: Army Navy Country Club
Stunning wedding, wonderful guests, beautiful day in Arlington, VA. Thanks to the staff & Rebecca Pipkins, of the Army Navy Country Club. The wedding was a knock out. Jiyoung and Jeff are so in love. Every shot was filled with love and tradition.
Panthini & Nikhi
Panthini & Nikhi Patel, Venue: Hilton Dulles, Herndon, VA
A two day Indian wedding at the Hilton Dulles. Over 200 family and guest danced all night and day and night again. Panthini was the calmest bride I have ever worked with, thanks to her sister by her side the entire time. Indian weddings are always brilliant and loving. It is wonderful to see so many generations come together for one event.
Anna Parker & Sean Gleason
Potomac Avenel Farm, Potomac, Maryland
One of the most beautiful coverted private golf clubs was the venue for this spring Potomac wedding for Anna and Sean. Potomac Avenel always creates a one-of-a-kind event with style and character. The rooms where decorated in boxwood wealths and brilliant flowers. Anna’s mother gave a tearful toast to the future of the bride and groom. Stunning day.
Becky & Andrew Panchik
Double Tree Hotel, Mars, PA
I knew from the moment I received Becky’s call from Colorado, I would love this couple. Orignally Becky was from Pitts- burgh, but moved to Colorado to be with Andrew. They had a small ceremony in the Colorado mountains, their images from the winter wedding where unbelievable. They wanted a different feel for their huge Pittsburgh family wedding…in- cluding the “Cookie Table”. The service and day was beautiful but the highlight is when Becky’s father and his band took to the stage and killed it. Including grandma dancing and Becky and her aunts on stage with her father singing hit songs.
