Marissa & Michael | Married | Sneak Peek!

Capital Theater WV Weddings-ExposureLet me just start off by saying how much I totally dig this couple. So down to earth, so laid back…both of them together, and individually, are just the most awesomest people, ever.

Ok–now that that has been said, let me now say how much FUN we had at this wedding. As I mentioned above, Marrisa & Michael are so laid back and WOW did that make for such an enjoyable day. There was never a moment that I didn’t see a smile plastered on both of their faces and also surrounded by so many close friends and family.

It was a day of never-ending celebration…just the way I like it.

More to come!

Omni William Penn Weddings | Pittsburgh-1She hated getting her photo taken, but the camera loves her so much more than she knows. She breezed through the day like she was a pro. She would smile at everyone that came into her path, but you should’ve seen what that same smile looked like when she looked at him. He had a gentleness to him that any woman could appreciate. He guided her through the day with the ease of a man that instinctively puts her first, every time. When she wasn’t next to him, he looked around to see where she was till he found her.

You’ll see all of this in the photos soon to come. For now, you’ll just have to trust me that although this was a huge day and a huge wedding, this couple, their families and their huge gathering of friends made it seem like this was the smallest, most intimate, close-knit gathering you could imagine. So much love all packed into one day…

Pink Champagne Gala to Benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation

champagnegalaOK ladies (and even gentlemen)! Get out your most sparkliest, most gorgeous or most outrageous pink everything and come get pink with me for a good cause!

Myself and my gal pal, Raemie Bachman, are throwing the PINKEST fashion event in Pittsburgh this year! Yes, I said it. PINK FASHION EVENT!

Ladies: you’re welcome.

As you can see in the flyer above, pink is our thing for this event, which makes sense because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Talk about a great way to fit in a magnificent party right before all the holidays start!

Yes, you must be wearing pink to gain entrance, in addition to paying the donation. And here’s a tip: the more pink you wear in one shade of pink the more of a chance you have to win one of our 2 grand prizes: a 7-night hotel stay from Raemie Bachman Realtor, or a glamorous photo shoot with moi. So we are talking about a monochromatic pink party! Selfishly, I can’t WAIT to get a photo of this crowd!

Can’t get on board with dying your hair pink? That’s ok–wear as much pink as you can and we’ll let you in anyway.

You in? Awesome, but there are only 50 tickets on sale because of space limitations and, due to an email blast for the ladies on my email list, quite a few have already been purchased.

OK, OK, OK already…go HERE to get your tickets.

So come get pink with me! I’ll be easy to spot: I’ll be the one in pink.

See you there!

Morning Glory Inn Weddings | Pittsburgh-33This was one big house full of LOVE, you guys. Oh my goodness. I don’t even have to say much because you can see all of the gushing sweetness from these photos. But I will say this: never underestimate your 2nd time around, or a true love that comes later than you expect. These 2 had EIGHT children between them, and you would think that many heartbeats needing a piece of your heart would make your heart that much more unavailable to another, but you’d be wrong; all it did was make those 2 hearts grow even bigger to give away even more love to each other.

Ally & Phil |Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Carnegie Museum Weddings-72Well well well….WHAT a wedding I have for you today. I can’t be 100% sure, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Ally is by far one of the most excited brides I’ve had the pleasure of photographing on her wedding day. And can I just say, the care with which I watched Phil use the entire day to make sure that Ally had the best day of her life was simply the sweetest thing you could ever see.

These 2 are a couple that have been destined to find each other. The vows were what every single couple wants to hear from their lifelong partner and there wasn’t one time during the day that if they didn’t have to be separated for some reason, Ally & Phil were like watching 2 magnets just try and stay away from each other. Not happening.

And Ally is likely the dancing-est bride I’ve seen in quite a long time! Just look at the photos of the reception. I don’t think I ever saw her leave the dance floor and there was Phil, right next to her, spinning and dancing her into the wee hours.

If you think I’m kidding about how sugary this couple is, let me end this post by saying that Ally & Phil actually took time on their honeymoon to email and thank us for being a part of their day. Who does that?!?
