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!

Engagement Photography Session in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

Allie and Michael chose to do their engagement photography session in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, as it's a special city - it's where they got engaged and are currently living. Allie and Michael wanted to capture the memories of this old and fabulous city before they moved on to a new adventure and chapter in their lives...Pittsburgh!! Yes, Allie and Michael are in the process of moving to the Burgh, and I am so excited for their wedding next year! These two are truly the sweetest and kindest people you will ever meet, and I had so much fun spending the afternoon walking around Old Town Alexandria with them, their adorable puppy Mildred (Millie)...and my husband in tow! I will say, my husband is an excellent assistant and film loader, think I can convince him to shoot weddings with me too?? I love traveling for weddings and sessions, and it is a perk when I get to bring my hubby along with me, which does not happen often! Millie was also a really great sport, hanging out with Mom and Dad while we took photos of all three of them. I absolutely LOVE DOGS, so having them at any session is always ok with me!

Allie and Michael, thank you for trusting in to capture these memories in a city you will always love!

J VERNO STUDIOS WINTER WEDDING

Carly and Jeff's J Verno Studios winter wedding celebration was a stunning event! I loved getting to know Carly and Jeff during their engagement session at one of my favorite locations, the Walled Garden at Mellon Park. Carly and Jeff's chemistry is undeniable, and they could not be more perfect for each other! Jeff is the jokester who is laid back, and Carly is a rockstar mom who definitely runs the show! They compliment each other and their wedding day was nothing short of spectacular!

Even though you plan your wedding down to the minute, something inevitable will happen to throw a wrench in your perfectly made plan. That is why I always tell my brides to cushion their timelines so that you are prepared for the unexpected! On their wedding day, Jeff and his boys ended up taking the shuttle that was meant for Carly and her girls all the way out to their ceremony in Wexford! So the girls, after waiting for the shuttle to arrive - not realizing it already left with the guys - decided to take matters into their own hands. All of them piled into their cars and drove themselves to the ceremony!!

Although it was a minor mishap, we all made it to the church with only 5 minutes to spare! Carly and Jeff still laugh about it to this day, and thankfully everything else went off without a hitch! Thank you again to Carly and Jeff for trusting in me to capture their special day!! 

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

1920's INSPIRED WEDDING GRAND CONCOURSE

Where to even begin, this classically styled 1920's inspired wedding at the Grand Concourse was amazing on so many levels. Jeni and Paul are the sweetest most genuine couple and their love is so inspiring and truly infectious. When I first spoke to Jeni over the phone about her upcoming wedding, I just knew this day was going to be so wonderful and filled with love, but I had no idea that their special day would be seen and celebrated throughout the world. Jeni's story to the altar and how Arthur Thomas, the man who received Jeni's father's donated heart, walked her down the aisle, was covered by the news - including The New York Times, The Washington Post, BBC, ABC and many more. The attention that this wedding received was truly amazing, but the most important part of that entire day was that for Jeni and Paul it was the happiest day of their lives! You can read more about how Jeni and Paul met and their love story, over on Burgh Brides! Jeni and Paul, I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to capture such an incredible part of your journey together! It has been a whirlwind, and I am so honored to have worked with you both!

I am currently booking weddings for the 2018 season, so contact me today to find out more information about my packages and services! I look forward to hearing from you!

THE CLUB AT NEVILLEWOOD WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

What a perfect day for a wedding at The Club at Nevillewood, it was a stunner! I adored working with Lauren and Jerry during their engagement session, and I was so excited to capture their big day at this beautiful venue. Lauren has amazing style, from her gorgeous Maggie Sotterro Dress to her fabulous Valentino shoes (I was in love), every detail was perfect. Not to mention the incredible team of vendors that worked so hard to bring their special day together. I might add, I was drooling over Lauren's bouquet, The Blue Daisy put together a masterpiece! 

Everything went off without a hitch, but I have to say my favorite moment of the day was when I snuck the bride and groom out for sunset portraits.  This, in my opinion, is one of the most important parts of the day. You finally are husband and wife, you are celebrating with all of your closest family and friends, but once the ceremony is over, you are nonstop until the end of the night. I love taking my couples out for some time alone, where they can enjoy each other and a brief moment together on their special day! Because it does fly by so quickly!

Sunset is also the BEST time for photos, and I mean the best. Just look at that dreamy light that we had! I highly encourage all my couples to prioritize time for portraits at sunset on their wedding day. Just a moment together to create images that you will remember forever. Thank you, Lauren and Jerry, for letting me be there to capture it all for you! It was an honor!

SOUTHPOINTE GOLF CLUB WEDDING

This Southpointe Golf Club Wedding was such a beautiful event! Amanda planned out every detail perfectly, and with only a few months to do so, I was really impressed! Amanda and Brendan were wonderful to work with, and easy going on their wedding day. These two are truly perfect for each other and so in love. I am so excited with how these images turned out, and Amanda's taste in color, decor, and flowers was on point! It was an honor to photograph such a special moment in their lives and I wish them a lifetime of happiness together!
