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!

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!

Lisa and Justin's beautiful Lenape Heights Golf Resort Wedding was such a special event! Lisa and Justin have known each other since grade school, growing up in the same small town and attending the same church every Sunday. 

From the Groom -

"We grew up in the same small town, but our lives took different paths. After grade school, we never were in the same school nor talked to each other much. However, we would always see each other on Sundays, since our families went to the same church. It's funny looking back on it now, and how she always caught my eye.

We went to different colleges, but they were still only 20 minutes apart. This lead to a couple of chance encounters in Morgantown where we got to hang out and have a few good laughs together. After college, we both moved home. That is when it all began. We started to talk more, and eventually went out on a couple dates. In June of 2010, we went to our first Pirate's game and the rest has been history.

After that day, we enjoyed every second together and had endless laughs. From watching her brother play football to rescuing a litter of kittens, I fell over and over for her compassionate and caring soul. In 2012, we made a jump and moved to Pittsburgh to start a new path together. I started a new job, and she went back to school. We were both busy with school and work, but always made time for each other.

After a few years in Pittsburgh, we realized there was so much to do here that we need to make a Pittsburgh bucket list. A few things topped the list: the incline and skating at PPG Place. As we talked about it, I could image the night. First, we would go to where it all began; a Pirate's game. After the Pirate's game, we would go to the Duquesne Incline. On the way back down the Incline, I asked her what other things on the bucket list she wanted to do. This is when the next chapter started. I told her I had another thing on my bucket list, and that's when I popped the question. I always knew she was the one, and I'm so grateful to get to spend the rest of my life with this beautiful girl."

These two are just so perfect for each other! You can see more of their beautiful engagement session HERE, as well.

Craftwood Inn Wedding Photography - Manitou Springs, Colorado

Amy and John said their vows and became husband and wife at this beautiful and rustic Craftwood Inn Wedding in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Manitou Springs is a quaint little town right outside of Colorado Springs, where the Garden of the Gods national park is located. The Garden of the Gods was breathtaking, and of course we managed to squeeze in a little portrait session between the ceremony and reception...and from the photos, you can tell it was totally worth it! Amy and I met in college while we were studying abroad on Semester at Sea, so a destination wedding was totally fitting! Over the years we have stayed connected, and when Amy asked if I would fly out to photograph her wedding, I was not only honored but also extremely thrilled to be there for her and John. Thank you Amy and John for allowing me to to capture those special moments throughout your wedding day! Wishing you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and endless adventures! 

I absolutely love to travel and destination weddings are my favorite! Please contact me for more information regarding destination wedding packages and pricing! I would love to hear from you!

Linden Hall Wedding

This beautiful and elegant Linden Hall Wedding was truly a wonderful event! I was so excited to photograph Mark and Jillian's wedding, especially after their epic engagement session photos! These two have traveled the world together and their love story could not have been more perfect. Jillian and Mark met 5 years ago in Pittsburgh after Jillian had recently moved back from Texas, and Mark was on location for Cirque du Soleil - Totem. A friend of Jillian's who was dating Mark's co-worker from Cirque, invited everyone out for drinks at a local dive bar. Mark, being the sweet natured Englishman, Charmed his was into Jillian's heart, and since that night, they have been inseparable. 

The beginning of their relationship was challenging. Mark was on tour, traveling to different countries and cities every 6 weeks. Jillian flew to see Mark every chance she got. They both loved it. The fleeting moments, the romance, dating in a different city every time they saw each other. But they both wanted more. Mark asked Jillian to quit her job to go travel with him full time...seriously this story does not get any more romantic! Jillian took the leap and joined Mark on the road, making a decision that changed both of their lives for the better.  Jillian and Mark have had so many adventures, and now that they are married, they can forever discover the rest of the world together.

France

Provence, French Riviera, Nice, Monaco...these are just some of the places we visited on our tour of the South of France two summers ago! My fiancé and I attended my cousin's wedding at the beautiful Le Mas des Oules located just outside the quaint little town of Uzès, France. We traveled there with my brother and his girlfriend, exploring the medieval towns and cities that are nestled around the rolling French country side. France is beautiful and life is so simple. Stores and restaurants close mid afternoon and don't re-open until the evening, where wining and dining continues until the early hours of the morning. The light breeze is welcoming, and of course the architecture and surrounding beauty is breathtaking. While there, we rented a car, which made travel around Provence a lot more convenient. However, the drivers there are crazy! So be careful! After spending a few days in Uzès, we traveled to Nice and then Monaco, where we walked the designer clad streets, stopped by the Hotel Monte Carlo, and dined al fresco. Oh, how I can't wait to go back!

Planning our trip to France was so much fun, and I can't wait for our next European adventure! If you know of anyone looking for a destination wedding photographer, please send them my way! I love to travel! I currently give discounts on destination weddings, and will create a custom package perfect for your needs. You can contact me directly for a quote!

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.”
