Strip District, Pittsburgh engagement session

This time of year is always a bit nostalgic for Erika and Zac; they met at a bonfire during homecoming five years ago at California University. These cool nights and colorful leaves remind them of when they first started to get to know each other and how quickly they fell in love.

So of course we planned their engagement session for the time of year that means the most to them - and was almost one year to the day of when they will marry next year. The Strip District in Pittsburgh has no shortage of interesting locations and these two didn’t mind that I stopped them every few minutes when some piece of architecture or lighting grabbed my attention. They just smiled at each other and cuddled and laughed together and you can just tell that theirs is a love that’s comfortable and easy.

Erika and Zac, I am so looking forward to spending the day with you next fall when we celebrate yet another milestone in your relationship!

Duquesne Club, Pittsburgh PA wedding, Lisa & Oliver

Do you know what my favorite part is about wedding days? The joy. The plain old happiness that is heartily passed around when two families officially unite. And so I love putting together blog shares because it gives me the perfect opportunity to relive the day and showcase all the love and goodness.

And let me tell you, there was no shortage of smiles and laughs and love on Oli & Lisa’s wedding day at the Duquesne Club in Pittsburgh. From the laughter throughout the toasts, to the way his parents embraced each other, to Oli’s uproarious laughter and the way Lisa looked at him as her new husband. Time and again, I am so honored by being allowed to photograph my couples wedding days and this one is no exception. So thank you, Lisa & Oli, I enjoyed your fabulous day and this wonderful start to your new lives together!

Special thanks to Holly Passarelli for second shooting this wedding alongside me! Some of her images are mixed in above.
