Jessica and Aaron - Pittsburgh Weddings

- Jessica and Aaron - I had the pleasure of photographing Jessica and Aaron's beautiful June wedding in Pittsburgh last week. The best word I can think of to describe this sweet couple is cute. Seriously cute. Okay, that's two words, but you get the picture. They not only get a kick out of each other, but you can tell that this is a couple who doesn't just wait for a reason to smile or laugh - they find one.Some favorite moments from this wedding, beyond how smitten they were with each other: The way they kept getting Jessica's grandmother on the dance floor in her wheelchair, including her leading a conga line. I'm so glad they did because every time I looked over at her she was ...

- Crystal and Justice - Pittsburgh Wedding Photography - J Verno Studios -  Crystal and Justice are one of those timeless love stories. I was honored to photograph their long awaited wedding at J Verno Studio, a favorite venue of mine on the Southside of Pittsburgh.They met in high school. Had a thing for each other. That thing followed Justice through years in the armed services, being away from Crystal as they went their separate ways, building a life in California, an illness that nearly took his life, and finally, back into the arms of Crystal. The love between Crystal and Justice has lasted decades and taken many forms, but finally, perfectly, everything (and everyone) was in the ...

- Micah and David - Grand Hall Priory Wedding - Same Sex/LGBT Weddings in Pittsburgh - I had my first wedding of this 2017 wedding season and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to kick off the season with than Micah and David - not to mention having the pleasure of working at one of my favorite venues in Pittsburgh, the Grand Hall at the Priory. It's not called the Grand Hall for nothing!I hardly know where to begin with this couple, who honestly never felt like strangers to me, even though we had only corresponded online in the year leading up to their much anticipated wedding. They are my brothers. I felt it from the first moment we met, and I feel it as I write this blog ...

- Children's Portraiture - Pittsburgh -I had the privilege of photographing Charlotte and her little brother Johnny last week, just as the buds were starting to trust that spring has officially arrived here in Pittsburgh.I have to say that photographing children is such an honor for me. I know how quickly time passes, and I imagine that is especially true when you have children. It must be bittersweet for parents. One day your children need ALL of you, and the next day they are off on their own. It's such a privilege to be asked to preserve a moment of this quickly passing adventure. Thank you, Charlotte, for asking me to photograph this time in your family's journey. Here are a few of ...

- The Day the Princesses Came to Town - During the off season for weddings I fill my schedule with freelance work - anything from headshots to family portraits, newborn and children's portraiture, and even pet photography. (I love fur angels ...)A few weeks ago I had the true pleasure of photographing a Princess Party at the Pittsburgh Convention Center. This was a two-day event, with over 2000 children in attendance, brought to town by Pretty Princess Parties from Minneapolis. I can attest to the fact that this incredibly talented (and very convincing) group of Princesses literally made dreams come true for the children that were there, and I have no doubt that they will ...
