Ashley and Justin’s Engagement Photos at Pittsburgh’s South Side

Ashley and Justin met at the gym. They didn’t actually meet each other, but they had definitely noticed each other. While neither of them frightened away the other one by making conversation with a sweaty stranger on the way to the locker room, they finally had a conversation a few weeks later. While Ashley was returning from the ladies’ room at Local Bar + Kitchen on Pittsburgh’s South Side, she heard “Hey, girl from the gym!” being shouted at her from across the bar. You can tell by nowthat her caller was Justin and the rest is history.

We met for their engagement shoot at Local Bar + Kitchen. We made a stop to shoot a few frames at the mural at 24th St and Carson St before finishing our session at the Hot Metal Bridge.

You can look forward to more Ashley and Justin in May when they celebrate their wedding reception at Heinz Field. I’m especially honored to be their wedding photographer since Ashley works for Hello Productions and we’ve worked together on weddings in the past.

Congratulations, Ashley and Justin!

    How did you ever get the photo on the hot metal bridge without a peddle biker photo bombing the frame.Love the lighting in the photo of the cafe on the first and second frames

    Ashley and Justin are looking great! What a perfect spot of light they’re sitting in at Local, and what beautiful color throughout!
