Jennifer and Mike are brave souls because they met me for an engagement session the day before their move to their new home! The day before you move, there is always so much to do, so I give them so much credit for coming out and doing the session.

We had sunny weather, which is not usually the case on the weekends here in Pittsburgh! We really lucked out!

We did some photos around some favorite spots in Station Square and then we headed to Jennifer’s alma mater for her master’s degree, Chatham – which is a gorgeous campus (I remember from Kiley and Devin’s wedding a few summers ago!) My favorite photo spot there was by the old mansion.

Congrats on your engagement, you two and I can’t wait until your wedding this winter!

Disclosure: I am always on the lookout for products and services who help our brides. This post is a paid post by Basic Invite who asked Kristen Wynn Photography to partner with them and promote their invitation line. Product photos are provided by Basic Invite and their team.

Invitations can be a huge undertaking! Whether you are the maid of honor and planning the bridal shower or the wedding couple preparing your invites, it is a lot of work.

Basic Invite can cover you from bridal shower to wedding to thank you notes to even – if you choose to have children – birth announcements.

Every invite that a couple sends or gives to me, I save and display on a wall in our studio. I am looking forward to seeing some of these on my wall in the near future!

What’s new for 2017?

*Rose gold is a very popular metallic choice for weddings right now and Basic Invite just added this option for their foil stamping.

*They also have clear invites – I haven’t seen these anywhere else. You can print on clear vinyl with white text and then choose a card to lay below. I love their example where the clear invite is laying atop some greenery very unique! And I’m someone who sees a lot of wedding invites.

*For rustic/barn events, they also have real wood invites.

Some of the great features of this invitation line include the ability to change almost all the colors, the ability to get a printed proof before ordering (I highly recommend this as a photographer!), tons of colors of envelopes that are all peel and seals (no licking or sponging required!), and full wedding sets including wedding escort cards and programs. So many times, programs become an afterthought when you are busy – so this is a nice way to have those done and matching the rest of the wedding!

If you are into belly bands, pocketfolds, envelope liners – they have all those too!

And of course, I’m biased as a photographer but I also love their photo save the date cards – a great use for your engagement portraits!

I hope this helps out anyone looking for their invitation suite!

Emily and Mark are such a wonderful couple!

Their springtime wedding had a bit of rain – which is par for the course here in Pittsburgh! But we found some great unique spots for them to get photos before the ceremony anyway!

These two had their ceremony at the Palisades, then all the guest went outside to allow the room to be flipped for cocktail hour. Emily’s sweet stepdad brought a big ladder so we could get a photo of as many guests as possible from up above.

Some of my favorite parts about the day was Emily’s brother serving as the officiant and the gifts Emily gave the bridesmaids and her family.

Then the ceremony space was transitioned into the dance floor – these guys had a packed dance floor all night!

Congratulations, you two! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always!

Carolyn and David had a lovely winter wedding. We started off the day at Carolyn’s parents’ home, which was close to their ceremony at St. Gabriel the Sorrowful Virgin Church.

The ceremony was just the beginning of the day – this party was going to ringing in the new year! We traveled to a local park and then to the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh –  which let everyone get out of the rain and snow for a bit!

After the ceremony, it was on to the reception at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport. Carolyn and David had a whole table of fun New Year’s props brought out and Carolyn’s parents even pulled the cord on the balloon drop at midnight.

Congrats, newlyweds – thanks for being our final 2016 wedding couple! It was truly an honor to work with you and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always!

Be sure to see their gallery here and check out the slideshow too! Enjoy!

Olivia and John had a fantastic winter themed Pittsburgh wedding!


We loved working with Erin and Sean at their wedding in 2014, and now it was time for Erin’s brother to get married!

Olivia got ready at the beautiful Embassy Suites in Pittsburgh, with all of her wonderful bridesmaids. Olivia had a flowing, elegant wedding dress designed by Mori Lee.






The couple had a heartwarming first look at Soldiers and Sailors. We then went on to take pictures at many significant locations, one of these locations being Soldiers and Sailors, where Olivia and John met since they both went to Pitt! (Go Panthers!) They left the ceremony in a fire truck since John is a firefighter.



Everyone had a great time at the reception at Embassy Suites, and the food was delicious as always. It also included a three-tiered cake with pearl accents made by “Cakes by Tammy,” which included a die-cut cake topper that included the last name of the lovely couple.




What Olivia and John wanted their guests to take away from their wedding was how much they truly love each other! 🙂


We wish you so much love and happiness always! It was truly an honor to be a part of your wonderful day!

Kylie and Marc are such a fun couple and a perfect match. We started their session at the historic Allegheny Cemetery in Lawrenceville which is breathtakingly beautiful and has great light – it is also fitting for Kylie and Marc as Marc is a funeral director.

Then we incorporated their pup in for some fun photos in the Strip District! Thanks to Kylie’s mom for helping us out and watching the little one while we did our shoot.

I wanted to do something unique and original for Kylie who loves photographs. So I scouted out a unique location – the Convention Center’s rooftop. The lights and city views were awesome!

You two – thanks so much for an amazing session and I can’t wait until your wedding!

Joy and Ivan were having their big wedding day in China, but these two met at the University of Pittsburgh and wanted to have a session in some traditional American wedding attire prior to heading back home. This way, they could have the photos to use at their Chinese wedding reception.

We worked all over campus where they met including CMU columns and the Cathedral of Learning, and then of course we had to do some yellow bridge shots to show their new hometown to family and friends!

Congratulations, you two! I hope your ceremony and reception back home went fabulously and welcome to married life!

Remember that old saying: “Kennywood’s open”? Well, no one’s fly was down – but Kennywood WAS open and we did have an AMAZING time with this sweet couple!

We had the best time with these two at Kennywood Park! We even got to grab a few shots of them on some fun rides – the Turtle, the Carousel, and even spooky Ghostwood Manor. I love their genuine interaction and so many smiles on these rides!

We spent a few hours there so we could be in the park when the lights of the Racer and the merry-go-round came on. And I want to give a shout out to the sweet and kind young lady working at the water gun game near the Ghostwood Manor – thanks so much for making these photos such a photo success.

And thanks of course to the couple’s wedding planner, Alexis Allen of SHE – for organizing and even giving our couple some outfit feedback!

And a visit to Kennywood is never complete without Potato Patch fries and cotton candy! Brianna and James – so excited for your wedding this fall!

Do you want to channel your inner kid and do a session at Kennywood? We would love to work with you and get that all set up! Just email us at kristen@kristenwynnphotography.com (or hit the contact button above) and we will get you scheduled! Better hurry – just two months left in the Kennywood season! 🙂
