Destination Wedding: Pittsburgh!!!

I may be biased, but I think Pittsburgh, PA is one of the best places for a destination wedding! We have several beautiful beaches, glistening water, sunny days, grand city vistas, ample lodging, great restaurants, wonderful cultural performances, excellent museums, the best medical facilities along with a hoppin’ night scene with deep historic ties. Maria and Amin met in college here and decided that the Sheraton Station Square was going to be the place to have everything. Their guests could stay at the hotel, witness their marriage in the courtyard with city-line views, celebrate at the reception and then take the elevator up to their rooms. Everyone would have enough energy to take in the cultural experiences of this former steel town that is gracefully dancing through a renaissance. You got to admit, if your from this area you a very proud to call this place “home”. And you probably questioned the “beautiful beaches” comment! However, you have to admit that we have miles and miles of coastline! Hope you enjoy their photos! Check out my newly revised website. And please, I recommend you even “LIKE” some photos on facebook! OMG & No Way!

Wedding Details Revealed

A wedding day can zip past you faster than a bumblebee focused on a pink cosmos. Some may have a fear of bees, which results in crouching, covering and screaming at elevated decibels in sheer horror. Others may admire the little black and yellow beauty and the colorful spectrum that dances through its wings. When it comes to weddings, which type are you? The time it takes to plan a wedding is usually nestled around 12 to 18 months. Some couples know exactly how they want their wedding to look down to the detail. When you consider the act of planning those tiny details, it reveals a massive investment of thought, time, money and sometimes negotiation! The details not only create a theme to make things look pretty, but they reveal the couple’s nature. As the big day quickly approaches everyone understands their job duties, including Aunt Betty who knows to bring five dozen of her famous Black Bottom cookies, three dozen Coconut Date Macaroons and four dozen Baklava. In honor of the bride and groom, it is our responsibility as their guests to shower them with love and gifts, enjoy ALL of their cookies and watch the color spectrum dance through their wings. – Craving more details?

Photo Blog Kickoff: Getting Pretty!

Getting pretty (or should I say prettier) is my first blog to kick off the 2015 season. I chose Erin and Matt’s wedding held in May of 2014 because they look fantastic together. The reason why I decided to focus upon “getting pretty” is because I love the time before the ceremony. I have been capturing wedding memories for 19 years and still enjoy feeling the heightened levels of excitement that are present at the bride’s house or hotel room. The prepping, primping and fussing about making a beautiful girl even more beautiful blows my mind. I love capturing these moments and love getting the groom’s expression as She enters the church and walks down the nave. In addition to these moments, I have thrown in the first dance as well. Check out how the little flower girl is spinning like the bride. You gotta love those moments as well. Until next time, follow me here!

Christine and Mark’s November Wedding

Some people fear the idea of getting married during the winter months. This was not the case for Christine and Mark. Sure, it may have been a little brisk, but they were bathed by love and the warm sun. Their wedding had it all: gorgeous people, romantic settings, elegant details and even a puppy!

As mentioned in a previous post, 2013 was a very busy year. This is the first post in a series of weddings that we photographed. If you find yourself wanting more than what this collection can offer you, please visit I hope you enjoy!
