Cory and Daniela| Pittsburgh Wedding Photography| St Pauls Cathedral| Westin Convention Center Hotel

Cory and Daniela had a wonderful wedding on a beautiful September day in Pittsburgh. They are such a cool couple, and they pulled off a great wedding just weeks after Cory opened the new Dante Salon in Shadyside! Congratulations on your wedding and your opening! Check out Dante Salon if you need a cut or color. Alisa Garin was along for the day to help me out. Check out her work.

Here are some of my favorite moments from the day.

Light love and Melody-Jamie and Ryan: Pittsburgh Engagement Photos-Tartan Day at the Duquesne Club

As a brief summer stretch finally passes by, and spring with all its color and sounds slips in, wedding season is slowly gearing up. After a few scattered and beautiful weddings throughout the winter, I am excited for the upcoming nuptials that I am going to be a part of. But truth be told, my heart is really starting to beat at my upcoming trip to Nicaragua.

Yep. I am finally heading south of the border! And I am really excited to say the least. ForĀ  weeks (maybe 3 if I can work it out) I will be working with my church, as well as a friend who works for Love, Light, and Melody: a non-profit started by Brad Corrigan (Braddigan), formerly of Dispatch. I am hoping to capture the intensity of life, love, and adventure that surrounds a trip like this. But more than that, I am excited to see how our lives effect those that we will be serving, and the changes that those in the most need, bring us.

More will come about the trip as the details are finalized, and I have a chance to talk to my buddy Dan, the in country director.

Since it has been a while since I have blogged, I wanted to start with whats been going on in my life.

I had a wonderful engagement session with Jamie and Ryan a few weeks ago. We started in Schenley Park, and they brought out their awesome boxer for some of the photos.

Jamie, Ryan, I am really looking forward to your wedding at the end of May.

Before I finish for the day, on April 6th, we celebrated Nation Tartan Day, in honor of our Scottish Forefathers who helped to shape our Declaration of Independence, using the Scottish one as a model. So in honor of that day, the Balmoral Bagpipe School had a concert, and scotch tasting (supplied by Pipers Pub in the Southside) at the beautiful Duquesne Club. The next photo is of me, just to prove that I really do rock the kilt:)

Have a happy Monday! Up next this week is Matt and Emily’s beautiful wedding at Longue Vue Country Club.

Downtown Pittsburgh Wedding Photography: Holiday Inn North HIlls wedding Reception-JIll and Eric Part 2

Here is the second part of Jill and Eric’s beautiful fall wedding at Mothers of Sorrows Church, and some fun dancing photos of Jill and her father, Eric and his mother, and their first dance.

After a beautiful Ceremony, we headed to the beer distributor in the limo, before heading to Mellon Park in Downtown Pittsburgh to capture some beautifully simple and fun portraits.

We then headed to the Holiday Inn on McKnight Rd for a great reception where the guests danced the night away.

The wedding season is winding down now, and its the perfect time for couples, families, or anyone for that matter, to start thinking about some fun winter lifestyle portraits as the weather starts to change. More to com on this soon, but some ideas for it would be a day hiking with the family, picking a Christmas tree, sled riding, a day in the snow, or anything for that matter.

Anyways, wait for the big reveal to come soon, until then, have a great day.
