Family Session on Film at the Walled Garden

This beautiful Family Session on Film at the Walled Garden at Mellon Park is really special, as it was also at my favorite location in the city! Sheena and I have worked together in the past, so seeing her again and getting to meet her family was such an honor. I love it when clients return, year after year, as I get to see their family, relationships, and love that they build together truly blossom. Family sessions really make my heart sing! I don't get to do many family sessions throughout the year, as my schedule tends to quickly fill up with weddings and boudoir clients, but when I get to work with past clients who I absolutely adore, it makes these sessions so much more meaningful and special.

If you are interested in booking a fall family session, contact me now, as I have limited spots left for 2018!

White and Gold Wedding at The Pennsylvanian

Carlie and Mike's beautiful white and gold wedding at The Pennsylvanian was a perfect and elegant event. The neutral color palette along with hints of yellow and rose gold and a splash of navy added a simple and classic touch. Carlie got ready at her parent's home before heading to St. Bede's Church for the ceremony. We then stopped for portraits at one of my favorite locations in the city, and where we did their engagement photos, The Walled Garden at Mellon Park. We could not have asked for a more beautiful, although chilly, day! You would not have guessed how cold it was because everyone, including the bridal party, rocked their portraits! We then headed to The Pennsylvanian, where the reception set up was complete with a custom bar adorned with photos from their engagement session!

Carlie and Mike met in graduate school and quickly became friends. Studying, hanging out, and doing almost everything together. They did not go out on their first date until after they both graduated, but you can say the rest was history! Mike proposed to Carlie on Memorial Day weekend while they were in New York visiting family. Mike took Carlie to the same restaurant they celebrated their graduation and got down on one knee by the Hudson River and asked her to marry him. They then celebrated the rest of the evening with their family who traveled into the city for the engagement!!

Working with Carlie and Mike was an absolute dream, from their engagement session, through their wedding, and now creating an heirloom album for their family to enjoy for generations to come - it's truly special! I love to build relationships with my clients and invest in them as much as they invest in me, which makes the entire process from start to finish so much more unique, meaningful, and of course fun!! Thank you to Carlie and Mike for letting me capture your beautiful wedding day!

Mellon Park Romantic Engagement Photography

Carly and Jeff's Mellon Park romantic engagement photography session was a dream! These two are a perfect fit for each other! Jeff's fun-loving personality and charm was totally contagious! Jeff joked and laughed during the entire session, making Carly feel relaxed and at ease. I could tell why Carly fell head over heels for him! Their chemistry was undeniable, and you better believe that makes for amazing photos!

We had our session at one of my favorite locations in the city, The Walled Garden at Mellon Park, and after rescheduling a few times due to the crazy and unpredictable Pittsburgh weather - it seriously rained so much, but we finally got the perfect summer day! Carly and Jeff totally rocked their session, and I love their style as a couple! Fashion choices for your engagement session are so important to get the look you want in your photos! I work with all my clients, giving them style tips while making sure they look and feel their best during our session!

I am so excited to share this blog post with you, and even more excited to share their beautiful winter wedding this past December at Jay Verno.

Now booking engagements and weddings for the 2017 and 2018 season! Please contact me today to schedule your phone consultation! I look forward to hearing from you!

Family Photography Session at Mellon Park

This Family Photography Session at Mellon Park was an honor to capture. When Jenni contacted me about setting up her portrait session, I was so humbled that she chose me to create these memories for her and her family. Jenni is not only an extremely talented photographer, she is also a great friend and an amazing mentor! Jenni and I first met at a Burgh Brides event, which gathered local Pittsburgh wedding vendors to socialize and network. Of course Burgh Brides put on an amazing soiree, but the highlight of the night was getting to meet Jenni and connect with her. She truly is an amazing person and I am so happy to call her a dear friend!

Mellon Park is one of my favorite locations, and it was such a fun afternoon running around the park and playing in the fountain with the kids! The Repcik's are one fashionable family, and Jenni did an amazing job styling the session too! Family sessions will always have a special place in my heart. It was how I started my career, photographing little ones and their siblings. I absolutely love it when clients return to me year after year to create these meaningful portraits. It is truly and honor to watch their families grow! 

If you are interested in booking a session this fall, please use my contact page to get in touch! Limited space is available.

Mellon Park Engagement Session

What an amazing Mellon Park Engagement session! Even though it was a gloomy and extremely cold day in Pittsburgh, these two kept each other warm with their love and braved the weather! We started out in the Southside by Ellen and Sam’s apartment, before heading to Mellon Park to finish the session. Thank you so much to Ellen and Sam for letting me capture your love, I can’t wait to celebrate your wedding this year! Sam proposed to Ellen in the sweetest way, read below for the full story!

From Ellen –

“My family owns a newspaper in western Pennsylvania, every year we have a “Family Council” weekend in a different city to discuss the future of the business and spend the weekend together as a family. Significant others are not permitted to attend the weekend events unless the couple is engaged or married. This year, the “Family Council” weekend was located in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. After a long day of meetings, there was a scheduled private dinner cruise on the Gateway Clipper.

Once on the boat, I was drinking wine and socializing with all of my cousins when my mother announced that she wanted to make a toast. My sister was the only other person on the boat who knew what was about to happen. My mother began her speech, “I am so happy that we get to do this every year. It is not often that a family gets along so well and actually looks forward to spending the weekend together….” My sister then pulled me to the front because she said she “couldn’t hear” our mother” Sam was texting me the entire speech saying things like, “I miss you, I cant wait until the weekend is over, etc.”

Happily Ever After

My mother continued her speech. “…a young man came to me a couple weeks ago and asked if he could be a part of our family and asked me a very important question. He is here tonight to ask someone special that same question.” Right as she said that, I immediately went into shock as Sam popped out of the captains room and walked down the stairs and got down on one knee in front of my entire family. I cried and said “yes!" of course. The crew came out with a bottle of champagne because my mother had told them beforehand about the engagement. There was a round of applause and everybody spent the rest of the night enjoying each other’s company. Needless to say, Sam will be invited to “Family Council” next year.”
