WE'RE ENGAGED!

I have always known that I wanted to marry Samantha. The harder thing to figure out was how I was going to ask her. In terms of a proposal I knew she deserved something big and that she would never forget, but that she also hates those tacky proposals (I see you stadium scoreboards and flash mobs) you see on Facebook. Lastly, I knew that nothing in this world matters more to her than her family, so they should be a part of the surprise. I needed a classy way to surprise her, while having as many people as I could get there to see it.

Dan + Alyssa Engagement | Downtown Cleveland and Cleveland Museum of Art

Last Wednesday, Catherine and I met up with Dan and Alyssa in Cleveland, Ohio! We met them at Penn State, and even worked with Dan to cover his proposal this past fall! We were SO honored when they asked us to cover their engagement session and 2020 wedding. These two are so enjoyable to be around and are SO photogenic together! After graduation, both Dan and Alyssa took jobs in Cleveland, Ohio, where they have been living for the past 2 years. They wanted to do their engagement session in the city they've called home, and before they make a move to Philadelphia in a few weeks. We love when couples pick places they love for their session! It makes it so personal and so comfortable! So, they

Junaid + Mahum Feature Film | Toftrees Resort and Conference Center

On Saturday, March 22nd, 2019, we began our drive from Pittsburgh to State College in the pouring rain. Once we arrived at Toftrees Resort and Conference Center, the wind was brisk, but the sun was shining through the pines and bare trees. Evan and I quickly unloaded the car and were lead to the bridal suite. Upon walking in, I was floored by how beautiful Mahum looked! Never in person, had I seen a bride in such vibrant attire with so many stunning details on her hands, feet, and on her whole outfit. These are still frames from the video, but to see better stills of these amazing details and beautiful couple, check out, Jana Scott Photography! Soon after Mahum warmly welcomed us, family mem

College Films Starring My Family

My brother recently told me how much he enjoyed watching some of my old videos, videos I forgot that I had even made. So today, I figured I would share the journey and some of those school projects, particularly the ones that star my family members. My filming debut began in 2004 when a childhood friend, Megan and I made a series of shorts titled "Attack of the Angry Penguins". In middle school, once we had camera phones, my friend Maddie and I used her Juke to record "Holmes Foster News" segments. I began shooting and editing recap videos, birthday videos, food eating competitions, etc. When our parents didn't believe Catherine and Megan that their new coach didn't know anything about coach

Junaid + Mahum Highlight | Toftrees Resort and Conference Center

I heard about Mahum and Junaid through Mahum's cousin, Mina. Mina reached out to me and told me that she was helping her cousin plan her engagement ceremony. Not only are Mahum and Junaid medical students and extremely busy with their studies. but they were also planning a ceremony in a matter of weeks! All hands were on deck, and these families did an amazing job planning this together! A week before the ceremony, I had the chance to talk with Mahum, and she was kind enough to share how she and Junaid met. It was during her second year of medical school in South Carolina. Mahum was stressing over her upcoming boards, while Junaid was in his third year, doing rotations. She told me that she

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!

This season, we took advantage of our work trips to State College and served 16 different Penn State seniors! Having the opportunity to take their photos and celebrate their final weeks of school brought us so much joy! We kicked off our senior sessions at the end of March with a wonderful group of 12 girls. We met this amazing group of seniors through one of Catherine's good friends from Penn State, Jenny! Jenny's cousin, Emily reached out to Catherine, and asked for pictures of her and her Phi Sigma Rho (a sorority for women in engineering) friends! While I was in town for an event, these 12 ladies toughed out a chilly morning session with Catherine and me! We love shooting groups of peop
