Succop Conservancy Wedding | Lyndsey and Ivan

On a beautifully chilly day in October, Lyndsey and Ivan exchanged vows and celebrated with family and friends at the Succop Conservancy in Butler, PA. The cold weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, and it was a festive, warm affair coordinated by the exquisite Lindsey Bradley of Hello Productions. To top it off, they had the talented Jeremy Ganss to keep the party going strong (and the coats came off!).

I loved Lyndsey and Ivan’s wedding because it was both beautiful and personal–I was especially impressed by their unique take on the “unity candle.” With all the details taken care of, they were truly able to enjoy their wedding with their guests. A big congratulations to Lyndsey and Ivan!

Also a big thanks to Pamela Marie who photographed with me. Here are just a few of my favorites from their day.

Beth Kukucka - Nice job Mary and Pamela! Good to see your wedding work agin, Mary. I especially love photo #7. Really nice composition.

DC Lifestyle Photography | Max’s Family

Max isn’t quite one yet, but that’s not slowing him down! I recently met his sweet family for a documentary lifestyle session in DC, and I so enjoyed seeing his little personality come out. What a fun stage of babyhood!

Here are just a few of my favorites from this session.

Fall Family Photography | Matthew’s Family

One of the other sweet couples I got to meet up with in Pittsburgh recently was Kristen and Mike, and it was so much fun to meet their little boy, Matthew.

Ok, this little guy has the cutest little smile. Seriously…he’s adorable! And handsome. And good-natured. I could go on…but instead I’ll let you see for yourself!

Fall Family Photos | Phoebe’s Family

When we moved from Pittsburgh to the DC area a couple of years ago, I knew I was going to miss a lot of wonderful people there. What I didn’t realize was how much I was going to miss seeing so many couples grow their families! So it was a special treat when I got to catch up with some of those sweet couples on a weekend trip to Pittsburgh recently.

Maybe it’s weird, but I think I remember other people’s wedding days more than mine! I certainly remember Lindsay and Aaron’s fun and beautiful wedding (has it really been three years??), and I so enjoyed meeting their darling girl Phoebe and “big brother” Rudy the dog. This family is as sweet as sweet can be!

Here are a few of my favorites from their (chilly) fall photo session.
