Brian & Chelsea {Engaged}


I could go on and on about my session with Chelsea and Brian. I knew the moment I met Chelsea at our consultation that this was a bride I definitely wanted to work with! She is laid back and bubbly and after meeting Brian, I knew they were perfect together. After expressing slight nerves about being in front of the camera, I was shocked with how natural they were. I wanted to capture every little expression, every sparkle when they looked at one another. The golden trees and perfect breeze didn’t hurt the evening either.

Brian and Chelsea met at the University of Pittsburgh through mutual friends. They were both in other relationships when they met but remained friends throughout college.  After graduation, they went their separate ways and the distance made them lose touch. About a year later they started talking again via FB messaging. Brian knew what he wanted, and since they were both now single, he convinced Chelsea to let him take her on a date. Because Brian came from out of town, this one little date ended up being a weekend of festivities, including Brian meeting Chelsea’s mom.

Chelsea describes the first 6 months of their relationship as the time that defined their overall relationship. Both coming out of long distance relationships they were convinced it couldn’t work. They told themselves they were just really good friends, who happened to like driving three hours to see one another. Thinking it wasn’t going to work allowed all the pressure off of the relationship, they didn’t feel like they had to impress one another or change who they were. Within months, they figured out they were kidding themselves in thinking it was only a friendship and began to move it in more of a serious direction.

Brian and Chelsea can’t wait for the days where the distance won’t keep them apart, they dream of fully remodeling an older home and making it their own.  Their wedding will be romantic and elegant and I simply cannot wait!

Joe & Meghan {Wedding}

Hair Stylist- Lynda Ross

Flowers- Mike Tagle & Chris Parisi

Cake- Jennie & Erin Bailey Tagle


October 12th was sandwiched between two cold, rainy fall days. But this Sunday brought something completely different. The breeze was just right with a temperature at, not too hot but not too cold. The coolness of the previous days with the addition of rain brought forth everyone’s favorite part of Fall in Pennsylvania, color.

The ceremony took place under a large tree spreading its arms to provide shade from the sun and saturated with yellow and orange leaves. 100 guests watched as Joe’s eyes widened when his gorgeous bride, Meghan walked down the aisle for the first time. From then on they were lost in their moments, taking in the wonder of their special day.

Everything seemed to come together and there was such a sense of good about their promises to one another. As all great weddings do, the day ended with a party in celebration of the new Mr. and Mrs. Tagle.

Congrats to the both of you! Wishing you the happiest and most love filled marriage!

Allen & Siobhan {Engaged}


Allen and Siobhan met through one of Siobhan’s closest friends. She was stopping by to visit her friend during an exceptionally boring night shift at the police department. It just so happened that two Deputies from the Sheriff’s Department were also working.

The first thing Siobhan noticed about Allen was his truck, but not in a good way. All the lights decorating the vehicle, in her mind, meant it belonged to a very annoying Fire Fighter. Even upon meeting, Siobhan walked away with not the best impressions of Allen. Little did she know he was currently in the middle of a break up and in no mood to impress.

Weeks passed and the two, both working in the same building, continued to rub shoulders. Allen knew there was a connection before Siobhan and began to pursue her, at first, casually by inviting her out through Facebook. The very uninterested Siobhan continued to decline, but as all good love stories go, Allen didn’t take no for an answer. Siobhan saw him as a friend, but one evening with no plans, no work and no school, Siobhan said yes to a movie. Siobhan quickly learned her first impression was very wrong and the two started officially dating a week later beginning their relationship in May 2012.

Just goes to show you can’t judge a man by his truck…

Their relationship is easy; they bond over the sentimental and truly have a friendship as their basis. They hold value in their outside friendships and support one another’s life pursuits.

The other evening we met at Valley Forge National Park, the location of their second date. It was a joy meeting and hanging out with them for the evening and I cannot wait for their country wedding at the Stoltzfus Homestead next Fall!
