Abby and Albert lucked out and had a gorgeous winter day for their wedding at Holy Family Church in Steubenville, Ohio.  I could feel the energy as I walked into Abby’s parents house, and I knew this day was going to be amazing.

Albert was such a good sport during the creative portraiture part of the day.  At one point he said to me “hold on a sec”….and started to yawn.  LOVE YA, Albert!! HAHA!


OMG both of you guys are my FAVORITE.


The Serbian American Cultural Center in Steubenville, Ohio was the perfect venue for their wedding reception…

The little girl in the next photo was SO CUTE.  She was on the dance floor playing with this outlet, lifting the little doors covering the plugs and pretending it was a keyboard.  And then she’d close it….and then she’d open it again and start typing.  HAHAHA!
