San Diego Trip | April 2019
This spring I had the opportunity to travel out to California to capture one of my couple’s engagement sessions. We ended up doing two shoots, one on the beaches of San Diego, and one in Alabama Hills & Mt. Whitney. Both were amazing of course!
For this trip, my mom tagged along as my travel buddy and occasional lighting assistant. You may remember that we traveled together out west last year, when we went to Las Vegas, Red Rock, Valley of Fire, and Death Valley. It seems like this trip out west may become an annual thing!
Colorado Trip | February 2019
Many of you know that I headed out to Denver to capture an adventurous engagement session up in the Rocky Mountains! I spent a weekend there exploring all around the area.
The first night I went up into the national park to scout where our session would be. Since I was exploring alone, I didn’t hike any of the trails, but it was still amazing to watch the sun set, and grab a few selfies along the way.
Alabama Hills & Mt. Whitney Engagement | Rachel & Ryan
This is part two of this gorgeous couple’s engagement session. The first half took place on a beach in San Diego. For this sunrise session, we drove 5 hour outside of the city to capture the majesty of the mountains.
Rachel & Ryan were incredible to work with. Let’s just start off by saying this is only part 1 of this session. Day 2 was all about the desert and the mountains! Be on the lookout next week.
We started at Torrey Pines overlooking the beach, taking advantage of the cliffs views. We then made the absolutely crazy & exhilarating hike down to the beach access, which included a pass through a small slot canyon, and using a rope to navigate a particularly steep rock face. I may have been covered head to toe in dirt by the end, but I had a smile on my face.
Iceland Trip | January 2019
As many of you know, Jon and I went to Iceland in December, exploring the southern coast and trying (and failing) to see the Northern Lights. Since seeing the lights is a bucket list item for me, I wasn’t content to miss out. As soon as our flight landed in Pittsburgh, I was already planning on the next trip.
Bahamas Trip | Winter 2019
My hubby was given the opportunity to go to the Bahamas this winter for his job, and of course I tagged along. Who could turn down a chance to spend four days soaking up the sun!?
We had mild weather (in the 70s most days), with one very rainy evening. The cooler temps didn’t prevent me from laying out on the beach or taking in a few water slides! It was in the 20s back in Pittsburgh, so this felt like heaven.
These two love birds were so much fun on the beaches of Paradise Island. What’s better than your toes in the sand and the love of your life on your arm?
Also, I’m slightly obsessed with Kevin’s shirt. Pineapples? Yes please!
Ahhh Iceland, my new favorite country. I’ve been there twice in the past few months, and am already dying to go back to explore during the summer. My husband and I went there together first, and you can check out that blog post here.
For this trip, I traveled with another photographer, Kat from Requiem Images. I posted on my instagram that I wanted to go back and photograph a couple, and she instantly said she wanted to come too. And here we are!
