After Maggie and Adam saw ShotBox in action at a wedding where we were working together this past summer, they knew their guests would enjoy it. They were right! Maggie, Adam, and their guests had a fantastic time taking these photos. I hope that you do too!

Congratulation, again, Maggie and Adam!

When you work in the wedding and event industry, you often think about your own wedding. If you’re married, you see things that you like and wonder what it would have been like for you if you had “seen it all” before your big day. If you’re like Maggie and Adam and you make other people’s visions a reality almost every single day, then you might wonder how you’ll have a good time at your wedding when you have a plethora of wedding experiences, both good and bad.

Maggie and Adam both work in the event industry. Maggie is an event planner for Common Plea Catering where Adam is a Chef. When Maggie and Adam welcomed their guests to their wedding reception at Heinz History Center, they said they wanted to show their friends and family exactly what they do for their living and put on a fantastic party. And fantastic it was! I can list all of the amazing things, but let’s say that the decor was beautiful, the dinner was amazing, the band was fantastic, and literally candy came out of the sky!

I could not be more honored and humbled to be a part of this wedding day. I’ve worked Maggie at countless weddings over the last seven years and I am thrilled to be behind the camera as she walked down the aisle. Many thanks to Nicki, Sean, and Ryan who helped me capture this spectacular wedding day.

Congratulations, Maggie and Adam!

    What spectacular photos of this exquisite wedding celebration! By far this is the prettiest the Library and Archives room has ever looked, and the monogrammed dance floor is fantastic. But the best sights of all Maggie’s and Adam’s smiles!

Susan and Jim met when Susan decided to learn how to play the guitar. She signed up for music lessons at a local studio where Jim was assigned to be her teacher. After a few lessons, Jim (who usually teaches young students) was nervous to ask Susan (a fully grown adult) out on a date. You’ll probably guess that he did ask her out and she did say “yes” because here are their engagement photos!

I met Susan and Jim on a beautiful afternoon in Mellon Park.

Congratulations, Susan and Jim!

Christine and Michael wanted to share an intimate wedding with their closest family and friends. They wanted to have a great time and really enjoy their ceremony, portrait session, and reception together. We did a lot of planning together and surprisingly, some of the casual group portraits at the reception were canceled in favor of more celebrating and enjoying the day. Well done, Christine and Michael. I hope you enjoyed every minute!

Christine and Michael were married in a ceremony at Saint Joseph Church in Coraopolis. After a beautiful portrait session, they joined their guests for dinner and a relaxing evening at Hyeholde Restaurant.

Congratulations, Christine and Michael!

Ashley and Ryan met many years before they started dating. Ashley became friends during with Ryan’s brother, Craig, during their carpool to and from school. Ryan met Ashley a few times, but he couldn’t believe that she would like him, so he didn’t make a move. Eventually he did, and now they’re getting married next year!

I met them in the Strip District of Pittsburgh one evening for their beautiful engagement photo shoot. Congratulations, Ashley and Ryan!
