Being a wedding photographer in Pittsburgh is great. I love meeting new, happy people, working with them to plan their wedding photography, and creating special memories with photography. The good and bad thing about being a wedding photographer is that I hope I don’t have repeat clients. Well, after the weddings, I do hope that clients will hire me to photograph their babies, families, and entire lives, BUT I really want them to have only one wedding. Since the same people can’t get married year after year, I liken “repeat customers” to those who received a personal referral for my services. Sara and Mike are just those kind of people who found me through Sara’s co-worker, Jess, who I worked with in July 2009. (Hi Jess!) Jess recommended me to Sara and Mike and I met with them right away. We had a great connection and I’m excited for their June 2011 wedding.
We met last weekend for engagement photos on Pittsburgh’s North Shore near PNC Park. It had been bright and sunny with blue skies all day. That evening, the sky was white, but the lighting was still super nice.
I don’t know why, but I really dig this next shot.
I had to get creative with this next one since there were a lot of people around (including another photographer with a bride and groom) and I didn’t want to be in their way….or for them to be in my shot.
These two are freaking adorable!
Because we are only living once, Sara and Mike took a ride down the railing. Check Mike’s face…. love it.
Cute shot resulting from railing sliding complications
We took some more photos after a quick costume change. I was obsessed with this mural.
Congratulations Sara and Mike!
