What an honor to photograph Kimberly and Phil’s beautiful wedding.  They were married at Heinz Chapel, with the reception at the Pittsburgh Field Club.  There were big thunderstorms between the wedding and reception, but luckily we were still able to be outside for portraits after the ceremony.  Congratulations, you two!

Erin and Zachary had a beautiful wedding at Mother of Sorrows Parish, with the reception at the Holiday Inn in Monroeville.  What a great day!

What a treat to photograph Arghavan and Matt’s beautiful wedding, and they couldn’t be a nicer couple. They were married at the Church of the Ascension with a reception at Phipps Conservatory.

Congratulations, you two!

Kristin and Brent had a beautiful wedding at the Heinz History Center.  Even though we started out with a snowy morning in October, the sky cleared and we ended up with a gorgeous day.

I love weddings, and spirited ones like Katie and David’s are even more fun!  They were married at the Westin Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, and their love and joy were apparent throughout the day.

Fall weddings can be so beautiful, and Lindsey and Michael’s was especially so.   I took their engagement photos in July, and what a long time ago that already seems!  It was great getting to know them both.  Congratulations you two!

Carrie and Sean were married two weeks ago, and every part of the wedding was beautiful!  A few years ago I photographed Carrie’s sister Christina’s wedding to Brad, and it was an honor to photograph another wedding in the family. It is fabulous to see couples in love, and it was visible throughout the day in the way Carrie and Sean looked at each other.
