Caitlin and Steven were setup on a date by their mothers. It sounds old-fashioned, especially since their mothers were childhood friends. Steven had traveled in Egypt with the help of some travel guides. Since Caitlin was planning to study abroad in Egypt, their moms thought that they should get together to exchange books and information. Caitlin did receive the books before her trip, but she and Steven didn’t meet until her semester was over. When she returned to Pittsburgh, Steven had no interest in meeting “some college girl” in Pittsburgh, but he was eager to hear about her trip that coincided with the Egyptian Revolution 0f 2011. Obviously, they both had something interesting the share and their moms had a good idea to get them together. Maybe they’ll make it back to Egypt some day!?

Caitlin and Steven were married at St Paul’s Cathedral in Oakland. After the wedding, we stopped for some wedding portraits in perfect fall light in Schenley Park. Our next stop was Carnegie Museum for a few more portraits where they were nearly (!)  crushed by a piano.  Thankfully they survived for their grand entrance into the stunning Carnegie Music Hall Foyer. Steven Vance provided the evening’s entertainment including a jazz trio and fantastic live music performance. Guests had a great time at the reception. I’ll be posting more proof later this week when I share some of their photos from ShotBox.

Thank you to Nicki for providing such excellent photography and lighting assistance throughout the day.

Congratulations, Steven and Caitlin!

When Rebecca emailed me to schedule an engagement session, I politely declined since I always recommend hiring the same photographer for both your wedding and engagement session. She told me that while she and her fiance live in Pittsburgh, they’ll be exchanging vows on a beach in Florida. While I offered to go with her (hahahah), I happily booked a session with them for a beautiful October afternoon.

I hope that their wedding day is just as gorgeous! Congratulations, Rebecca and CJ!

Surprise!!!! Dana and Barry are married!! It was a surprise to their friends and family that they recently (secretly) eloped after being together for many years. To celebrate their marriage, they held a party for their friends and family at Hundred Wood and hired our ShotBox. Special accolades to Dana who made all of the props that you see in these photos.

Congratulations, Dana and Barry!

Kristen and John attend Ashley and Justin’s wedding last spring. Kristen thought that we did a good job at the wedding, but John didn’t remember seeing a photographer there at all! I take this as a good sign since it means that I can do my job without disrupting any guests.

I’m thrilled to be working with them next year for their own wedding at The White Barn.  For their engagement shoot, we met at the beautiful, private property at CS Stuido. With the assistance of four personal stylists, Pumpkin, Sebastian, and Laddy (horses!), we all had a great time fighting through the cold weather on their engagement photos.

Congratulations, Kristen and John!
