Sara is a brave woman. A few years ago, she traveled from Pittsburgh to visit her friends in South Carolina. Her friends had told her they had “met [her] future husband” and had set her up on a blind date. What’s the harm of going on a blind date in another city? If it doesn’t work out, you don’t have to see the other person. But, if it does, like it did for Sara and Nathan, then you’re instantly in a long distance relationship. For these two, things did more than work out…

Sara and Nathan were married at Saint Bonaventure Parish. Sara’s dad walked her down the aisle, then immediately changed clothes to serve as the Deacon in the service. His thoughtful words for the couple continued the waves of laughter and tears that had been sweeping over them all day. After the touching service, we all traveled to The University Club to celebrate their marriage with their many visiting family and friends.

Many thanks to Nicki for her hard work and photographs from this beautiful wedding day.

Congratulations, Sara and Nathan!

Lauren and Jimmy were dating when they discovered they had both, individually purchased the same couch. While it is common for couples to disagree on furniture choices, they had independently selected the same piece for their apartments without knowing it. Even though it was a different color, it seemed like clear indication that they should be married!

Lauren and Jimmy were married in a ceremony in the Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. Lauren and Jimmy were excited to see all of their friends from different parts of their lives in one place–family and friends from childhood, college, graduate school, internships, and work! Prior to the ceremony, we took as many of the portraits as possible so Lauren and Jimmy could attend their cocktail hour. They celebrated their vows with their friends and family at the reception with help from DJ Sam Crawford.

Planning their wedding while living in Seattle wasn’t ideal, but they had some awesome vendors to help them out. Lauren’s makeup was done by Simone Jene Makeup and her flowers were by Sapphire and Lace Design. I had some help too! It was my pleasure to photograph this wedding with Christina.

Congratulations, Lauren and Jimmy!

Julie and Brian live near Philadelphia, and I wasn’t able to meet them before booking their wedding. When they were visiting Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving, we took some time to get to know each other with an engagement photo shoot downtown. Who knew that the day after Thanksgiving would bring warm and sunny weather to Pittsburgh? Maybe their smiles bring the sunshine!

I had a great time getting to know them and I’m so excited to photograph their wedding next year at the University Club. Congratulations, Julie and Brian!

    I’m OTM (over the moon) for you two!

Our 9th annual Turkey Bowl was held on a Thanksgiving morning that felt more like a day in early fall. The rock-paper-scissors official was played by my dad, who, after 4 years, still claims that he does not know the rules of the game. Our MVP, Therasa caught 3 interceptions and collected a snazzy trophy! Snack Man Rich Dembski had pockets full of honey-roasted Almonds and Sour Patch Kids (I kept wondering why his shirt was always pulled up around his chest).

Next year we’ll have to celebrate our 10th year with a special half-time show and t-shirts that are 18% gray.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Theresa,congrats on your MVP.I think we should celebrate at my Christmas Party over a beer.Tell Fred to bring some of his home brew.lol

When I asked Kristen and John what they were looking forward to most about their wedding day, one of the things they said was “having fun and just being goofy.” I wasn’t really sure what she meant, but judging by their expressive faces and insanely happy smiles, I think I saw what they hoped to feel.

Kristen and John were married at St. John and Paul Catholic Church. They celebrated their wedding reception at the White Barn with a great meal and an awesome performance by The Elite Show Band. It was easy to smile when all of their wedding planning was taken care of by Natasha Brody from Hello Productions.

I was honored to have Nicki’s help to capture these photographs.

Congratulations, Kristen and John!
