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

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!

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

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!
