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.
