Karen and Jamie’s Urban Engagement Photo Shoot

Karen and Jamie met through mutual friends. They both moved to Chicago independently after college and started dating after attending the same Christmas party. They’ve lived in different areas around Chicago and were eager to have photos taken in the city where they spend most of their time.

They’re planning their wedding that will take place in Pittsburgh this fall at Westminster Presbyterian Church followed by a reception at The Twentieth Century Club. Enjoy some of their fun, urban engagement shoot photos and get ready to salivate (dear Pittsburgh residents) over the beach photos we took on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Congratulations, Karen and Jamie! I can’t wait to see you again.

I'm Randi Voss, a professional wedding and portrait photographer based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I specialize in photographing fun, happy weddings working throughout the wedding day as both a photojournalist and a portraiture artist. Have a look around my blog to see what I've been doing lately, both personally, and professionally, and get to know me better. View the Galleries to see some of my favorite photos. Leave a comment to let me know your thoughts. Sincerely, Randi

    AMAZING!!!!! And, I agree – it captures perfectly your relationship and how you interact… always happy, positive and a joy to be surrounded by!! Love you guys and can’t wait to celebrate over the next few months!

    Yes, I am jealous that you got to be on a beach. But I’ll quickly get over it and just enjoy these photos of this very happy couple.

    I thought the ones at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond would be my favorites, but then I saw the last one. It wins, for sure.
