Mandi and Chris celebrate in NHT!

I find many things enjoyable about a career in photography. One of the things is making people happy – or should I “cheesily” say (while rolling my eyes), “making people smile”. I love the interaction that occurs when capturing an image that celebrates a moment in life. I was extremely excited to capture the image of the groomsman following the instructions to folding the pocket square. In additional to this smokin’ hot couple, highlighs include pre-ceremony at a swanky hotel in Monroeville, a ceremony in Irwin and a rustic-chic reception in North Huntingdon. If you can name two out of the four places we visited, you will be entered into a drawing to receive a portrait session for $65.00 ( valued at $135.00)! Just write your guesses in the commments section and I will pull a name next Monday night! Congratulation and I wish the best for Mandi and Chris!!! Aaron McGregor Photography

Celebrating 15 Years in Norwin!

In 1995, I was fresh out of college with a BFA from the University of Arizona’s photography program. We settled in the Norwin area in 2000 after my wife, Heather (N.H.S. Grad of 1991) and I got married. Imagine my surprise and astonishment when it took me 14 years to book my first NHT wedding! I once photographed a wedding at the Immaculate Conception Church and several receptions at Stratigos, the Barn and Pluma, but I never had a wedding client that lived in NHT. Over the course of 14 years, I captured tons of weddings in Armstrong County where I was raised and in every direction from NHT. Gabby asked on Facebook, as everyone does on All About the Norwin Area, about a wedding photographer. A few people recommended me along with a list of 50 others (I am sure you have seen those non-stop referral comment lists – overwhelming to be sure). She and Matt had a lovely ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Jeannette. We stopped at White Oak Park for a few quick formals and continued onto Stratigos for a wonderful reception. My business partner, Chris and I even stayed an additional hour without charging the couple since that hour was usually travel time. Please contact me and ask about my 20th Anniversary Specials at Aaron McGregor Photography. Thank you!

Referrals are the Best

I love hearing that someone knows about my photo business because they were referred by a formal client or they hired me because they were in a bridal party. This was the case with Amanda and Matt who planned their wedding from Virginia and were big time Steelers fans to boot! Amanda was a bridesmaid in her cousin’s wedding I captured eight years ago in Harrison City. I dropped off my talented partner, Chris Lane at the Marriott in Greensburg so he could capture the guys as I continued onto Export to get photos of the girls. The wedding took place in Murrysville and we got in a few formals at the Greensburg Country Club before a storm hit. It was great seeing the family again and catching up with Amanda’s cousin, Samantha. In closing, I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANK YOU for your referrals! You are the best! Go Stillers! Aaron McGregor Photography

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!

Liz & John’s August Wedding

It may be frosty, okay downright freezing today in the Pittsburgh area, but Liz and John’s wedding occurred in late August. The weather that day was just like this couple – gorgeous and beautiful! We were greeted by an extremely happy, Liz whose smile was contagious. Everyone was brimming with excitement as hints of lavender, purple and white danced to a synchronized ballet. It was difficult for me to narrow down some of the best images from Liz and John’s wedding, but I hope you can be satisfied with just a sample of this gorgeous couple.

If you are getting married or know of anyone that is, please confide in us to capture all of your wedding memories. I always run specials during the month of February where you can save 20% off your wedding, portrait and pet portrait bookings. I refer to this as the “Sweetheart Special” because I believe that everyone should celebrate life and dance the cosmos! I hope you enjoy!
