Tara + Matthew | Embassy Suites Pittsburgh Downtown

Tara + Matthew | Embassy Suites Pittsburgh Downtown

Tara is one of my absolute favorite people in the world. You cannot be in a room with her and not catch on to her infectious energy. When she sent me a text with will you be my bridesmaid crossed out and photographer written in, I knew that I was in for the most fun day ever! It is not hard to understand quickly why her and Matt compliment each other so well. I don’t think they left the dance floor or each other the entire evening and being able to have that much fun together is the best showing of love!

The new Pittsburgh downtown Embassy Suites is such a beautiful venue. Tara and Matt opted to do a first look and then we headed out for portraits in the city streets. Strawberry Way and it’s painted street is one of my favorite city spots!

The ceremony with the Babie’s Breath arch by Community Flower Shop was gorgeous. The modern and neutral decor of the Embassy Suites is so elegant. Tara’s hair and makeup was perfectly executed by Justine with Beauty Justified and those awesome skyline invites by Lauren at Noteworth Invitations were the perfect precursor for the weekend. Of course the dancefloor was packed all night with Andy Booth as DJ!

Just in love with these two and their photos! Hope you enjoy!

Angela + CJ | Heinz Chapel & Mansions on Fifth

Angela + CJ | Heinz Chapel & Mansions on Fifth

Even though this wedding took place in November, it gives me all of the Valentine’s day feels! Those lush red and pink florals created by The Farmer’s Daughter, the sweet and romantic look created by Hannah Conard Beauty and the beautiful backdrop of Heinz Chapel, Mellon Park and Mansions on Fifth. I was seriously swooning all day long! I hope that you have the most amazing day with your loved ones!

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!

Alexandra + Luke | June 11, 2016 | Severance Hall Cleveland, OHSeverance Hall Wedding | Cleveland, PA

Alexandra + Luke | June 11, 2016 | Severance Hall Cleveland, OH

Sometimes you shoot an event and you just cannot believe that it is real life. That the details fit so well together, that the venue is the perfect backdrop, that God smiles on you with perfect weather and that the couple is so lovely and in love it almost seems like a fairy tale.

Alexandra and Luke’s Severance Hall wedding in Cleveland was just that, a perfect fairytale. The home of the Cleveland Orchestra, Severance Hall is bathed in luxury and beauty. The ceremony and reception took place in the two tiered marble hall that was fit for a king and queen. The beautiful tablescapes of the reception tables looking over the dance floor were the perfect acompaniment to the beautiful hall.

The sunlight was absolutely spectacular during portraits and if allowed I would have taken photos for hours. Luckily we were able to sneek back out after dinner to get golden hour images that will remain some of my favorites for years to come.

The DJ kept the hall dancing the entire evening and they had a sparkler send off complete with an antique car. The details are just too amazing to describe, take a look!
