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.

Beach bound with a chance of Grenada

Yep, today we are heading to the beach for 24 hours to debrief with group one, and relax so that we can finish out the trip energized.

Yesterday was a little bit different for us. Instead of going to La Chureca, we brought more than 60 kids from La Chureca to us, to spend some time playing soccer and doing crafts at a beautiful sports complex up in the Mountains. I’ll edit and post photos from that later, but last night when we got home I was just to physically exhausted to even try to stay up late. In fact, our whole group was in bed by 9:30 last night. Crazy!

Doug (the group leader), Kara (the translator) and myself will be here for another week working with a second group from Northway Oakland, and I cant wait to see what God has in store for us over the remainder of the trip. So far this has just been a taste, and I am so excited to get more of it. The exhausting days are nothing compared to the work that the people of La Chureca do every day.

I promise to post more pictures soon, most likely tonight, but I need to go get ready for an exploration of old world Nicaragua.





Kay and Jack: Southpointe Golf Club| Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

I met Kay as her wedding date neared. After hearing her story, and the story of how she and Jack met way back in high-school, I had to be a part of their special day. The best part was the fact that Kay really wanted documentary coverage, and to tell the story of life, love, and adventure in their lives.

The reception took place at the beautiful Southpointe Golf Club in Cannonsburg.

This is only a small selection of my favorite photos, but I think that it represents Kay and Jack together, completely.

Kays dad was in the hospital recently, but made it to his daughters wedding. Here he waits halfway down the isle to finish walking Kay to Jack to be given away.

After the wedding we shot some quick portraits before heading into the reception.

Kay, Jack, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day. It was a pleasure to meet your family, and to get to know both of you. I hope you enjoy the photos, and will let you know as soon as the rest are up on Pictage to proof.
