Very good tips! Thanks, Buzzfeed!


An Update!

Hello all! I’ve been lying kind of low for a while — just relaxing, taking in a few concerts and films and spending time with friends. I do have a wedding coming up on Halloween, and I’m really excited about it — also I will more than likely be at Pugtoberfest 2014 in Kunkle Park in Apollo, PA on October 11th. Pumpkin patch season is gearing up, so if anyone is interested in some fall-themed/pumpkin themed photos — please let me know! I am typically always available on a Sunday, and every Saturday after 3pm (some are all day, though — just ask!)

With some planning, we can meet up at a Pittsburgh-area pumpkin patch and I can photograph your children and/or family. Looking for fall themed engagement photos? I can do that, too! Mini family sessions will start at $100.00 and will include travel time, and an archival DVD with 20-25 images on it with full copyrights. Engagement sessions will start at $300.00 (either a la carte or be considered your deposit if you so choose to book a wedding with me – open dates for 2015!) and that covers travel time, and archival DVD with 35-50 images on it with full copyrights.

It’s also never too early to start planning your Holiday photos, either. I hear Phipps has Santa when it gets closer to the Holidays!

Send me an e-mail today at or call me at 724-469-0777. Thanks!
