Colleen + John | Omni Bedford Springs

The Omni at Bedford Springs is one of my absolute favorite venues. There is just something about being among the mountains and the venue is amazing! Colleen and John were absolute dreams to work with. They had an amazing vision of romance and elegance for their day and even the rain did not prevent them from getting beautiful outdoor portraits.

They chose to do a first look and portraits before the ceremony which allowed them a little time to relax as fresh newleyweds. The reception was rocked with Jason Kendall Band at the healm.

Absolutely loved everything about this day and so excited to share the exquisite details with you!

Lauren + Dylan | Los Angeles, Griffith Observatory Engagement Session

Lauren + Dylan | Los Angeles, Griffith Observatory Engagement Session

It’s not a secret, I am in LOVE with the West Coast, so anytime I have the ability to photograph a beautiful couple with LA as the backdrop, I am going to jump on it! Lauren and Dylan were so wonderful to work with. They have the most amazing bond and it was so fun to watch the two of them interact with each other. Griffifth Observatory was absolutely packed, but it seemed as if time was standing still around us and around them and their love story was the only thing that really mattered on the top of the Hollywood Hills that day. I absolutely loved spending the time with the two of you and I really love the photos that we captured that day! I hope you love them as well!

Sara + Michael | August 21, 2016 – Palisadium, Cliffside NJ + NYC Skyline

Sara + Michael | August 21, 2016 - Palisadium, Cliffside NJ + NYC Skyline

We posted a couple of weeks ago the engagement session that we shot in Brooklyn and now the wedding that brought us to the big city!  Sara and Michael had a beautiful day with a venue overlooking the Manhattan skyline and despite some rain, their first look and portraits were absolutely beautiful outdoors on the Hudson River.

They had a traditional Orthodox Jewish ceremony and I loved the energy and excitement around the entire wedding day.  They moved the ceremony indoors to a gorgeous ballroom and their reception setup was surrounded with windows and views of the city.

Absolutely loved every part of this wedding and having Kristy Lumsden Photography along as my second shooter.

Mingxin + Kyler – Pittsburgh, North Shore Engagement Session

Mingxin + Kyler - Pittsburgh, North Shore Engagement Session

Mingxin and Kyler’s engagement session on the North Shore was of epic proportions.  Not 20 minutes into the shoot the sky darkened and the sky was practically illuminated with consistent lightning.  I knew that we did not have long to take cover before the sky completely opened.  We snapped a couple more portraits with that pre-storm twilight and then decided to get indoors to wait out the storm.   And what a storm it was!  Horizontal rain, some hail and some very close lightning bolts made me very happy we had made it indoors in time!

After about an hour the storm finally slowed down enough to head back down the Riverwalk and across the Clemente Bridge to where we were parked.  The city lights were beginning to come on and we took this as an opportunity to get city backdrop photos from the top of our parking garage.  Standing at the highest point with the city lights and a couple of rumbles of thunder still in the background was an amazing moment, scroll down to see the outcome.

Oh and when a couple says, “borrow our boat for your photos”, you borrow the boat.  Thankful for Pittsburgh generosity!

Cannot wait for their October wedding at the Renaissance.  I have a feeling it will be just as epic!

Brittney + George | August 6, 2016 | Heinz Chapel + Club at Nevillewood

Brittney + George | August 6, 2016 | Heinz Chapel + Club at Nevillewood

There is not enough room to properly showcase this wedding day on my blog.  Brittney and George’s wedding day was straight out of a movie.  Everything was perfectly directed, the scene was gorgeous and the bride and groom were absolutely in love and naturals in front of the camera.

Brittney and George chose to see one another before the ceremony in a first look (which is quite literally my favorite thing in the world!)  We chose Pitt’s campus as the backdrop before their Heinz Chapel wedding and the lush greens and beautiful stone were the perfect backdrop.  I am in LOVE with their portraits and I had a narrowing down what to share.

After a beautiful ceremony, Brittney and George chose to stop at the lock bridge in Oakland to place their own lock to commemorate their wedding day and the bond of their love.  Then we headed to the Club at Nevillewood where a gorgeous reception had been set and a night of dancing awaited.

I loved everything about this wedding day!  So happy to share it with you today!

Katy + Brian | July 3, 2016 | Omni Bedford Springs

Katy + Brian | July 3, 2016 | Omni Bedford Springs

When I first met Katy and Brian we clicked. Katy was absolutely positive about what she wanted her wedding day to look like and her vision came to life even better then I think she could have imagined. The Omni at Bedford Springs is already an amazing backdrop, but when you add in a bright color palette and The Farmer’s Daughter on florals and Erin Alexander on stationery, you know you are in for a real treat.

Each bouquet and centerpiece was unique and stunning. The outdoor ceremony space was instantly transformed into a colorful celebration of their sweet love story. Because everything was at the same location, Katy and Brian opted to do a first look. What better location to meet your love on your wedding day then then the bridge that overlooks the grand entrance at the Omni. They had a beautiful private moment together before joining their bridal party and family to do portraits beforehand.

The beautiful outdoor ceremony was personal with a close friend officiating and another crooning them with her voice and ukelele and the reception was a celebration with close friends and family with a dance floor that cannot be rivaled.

The entire day was so beautifully executed and we were thrilled to be a part of the day.  The details were just so incredible that there are many, many photos of them!  Enjoy!
