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.


Jamie and Ryan were married over Memorial Day Weekend, and what a beautiful weekend it was.

Between the wonderful yet hot weather, and a beautiful ceremony, and fun reception, the day was great.

Enjoy the story of their day.

The ceremony was full of Joy

I love this image of the kids coming down the isle. The looks on their faces, and those of the guests just makes me smile.

After the ceremony we headed to a small park for some portraits of the groups. It was SO HOT outside, so later as the night cooled down, I took Jamie and Ryan out for a few more portraits.

Jamie looks beautiful here!

One of the groomsmen was a chiropractor, so before the wedding party walked into the reception he offered a quick adjustment to who ever would like one.

Jamie and Ryan had a great first dance, but the best one had to be at the end of the night when they danced to some hip hop together.

By this time the weather was so much cooler (85 vs 95) or so we imagined

After our quick (less than 5 minutes) portrait session, i was grabbing my gear and saw Jamie and Ryan both wiping tears from their eyes, its that love and emotion that makes me love shooting weddings.

I hope you enjoyed the photos, Keep an eye out for more upcoming weddings.

Jamie, Ryan, thanks for having me as a part of your day.

I wish you both the best together.


Emily and Matt were married on a beautiful April day. The skies threatened rain all day, but it held off till late into the night. The ceremony was held at The Old Stone Church in Monroeville, Pa. Its a very cool little church right in the heart of town, but thanks to some awesome blooming trees, we were able to grab some really cool portraits. Once the portraits were finished, I stepped back and documented the day as it unfolded.

I love these next portraits. Emily is stunning! And i was shooting the wedding with a fever of 102º so having a good looking wedding party made my day so much easier.

Longue Vue Country Club is easily one of the prettiest venues for weddings in Pittsburgh.

On to some more moments that make the day so special.

Emily and Matts’ first dance as husband and wife.

Matt and his mom dance while Emily and Matt’s step father spend a moment together.

I love this moment after Matt gave his toast; such a delicate kiss.

As the night wound down, the young danced. The old talked.

Matt, Emily, it was a pleasure to document your day. I look forward to grabbing a beer next time you’re in Pittsburgh, or I am in NYC. I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing honeymoon. Blessings!

I hope that 2010 is off to a good start for you! I’m busy booking weddings, and skiing, but I wanted to take some time to create and share a slideshow using my print lab Pictage! I love these guys because they make life easy for you the client!

After your wedding, we upload your high-res photos to Pictage to back up your images off site. I’ll then create a slide show of my favorite images and send that out to you so you can share it with your friends. Your friends can then pick their favorite photos and order the prints they want with out ever asking you to order a photo for them!

So enjoy the slide show. Share it with your friends. I am still booking portrait shoots for winter activities. Portraits are for more than just your wedding day. Share memories with your dearest friends, or remember a special time with family photos. We can capture the life, love, and adventure that surrounds you.

If you haven’t booked your wedding yet lets talk. I include an engagement session in every “package”. If you already booked your wedding photographer, but still want to do an Engagement Shoot, give me a call. Engagement photographs are intended to capture the essence of who you are as individuals, and as a couple in love. Whether it’s a walk in the park, or basketball with your dog, we’ll spend 2-3 hours on-location, centered around activities you enjoy. I suggest a few wardrobe changes for more variety.

So without keeping you waiting any longer: Enjoy the slide show!


Jill and Eric were married a few weeks ago, and I have been going through and editing their photos, and am planning on blogging my favorite images from their wedding tomorrow or Friday, but I wanted to post a new slide show created through my professional lab Pictage.

We had a great time shooting in downtown Pittsburgh and over on the North Shore near and around the river and PNC Park. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and threatening rain, and as we started heading back to the north shore, the skies kinda opened up on us, and we cut it a little bit short.

Anyways, I love these photos, and just wanted to share this slide show with you.

Have a great day and enjoy the fall, I know that I am.

Here is a quick photo from Eric and Jills wedding day.
