So delighted to spend a Saturday with these two in the snow! Many more images to come!
From January until March – this marks the longest stretch I’ve ever not blogged here since the start of my business! Blogs aren’t as popular as they once were with Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat – but we’ll be back to blogging weddings here very soon – we have so many to share! Even if blogging is not the end all and be all it once was, I still can’t give it up after doing it several times a week for these past 7-8 years!
But we’re back with the announcement of our album sale!
Hey, all! We don’t do sales very often around here – our “once every few years album sale” is the exception!
Every few years, we like to offer an incentive to help previous couples get their album done! Life after the wedding is busy – maybe you moved, got new jobs, moved again, renovated that new house, got a puppy, or had a baby (or two! or three!)
Maybe you had every intention of making your own album, but you never got around to it! Heck, some of you have a draft of an album here with me that you never finalized!
Now’s the time to get it done and off your to-do list! And I’ll make the process super easy on you:
1. Email me on or before March 31st, 2017 and say “I want to make my album” (you have 2 weeks!)
2. I design the album for you – you don’t have to pick out every photo unless you want to!
3. You tell me what you want changed.
4. I make the changes, you approve it, and it’s done!
This is an easy process and this is the lowest price we ever offer on these books – $800+tax – any book I offer, any number of pages, no limit on photos, your choice of cover, any size, any page material you like! 🙂
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started on or before March 31st, 2017 and the sale price is yours!

It’s a cold snowy Saturday morning in Pittsburgh, so today we are throwing it back to a sunny October day from this fall.
You might remember Dayne and Britni from their engagement session at Seven Springs last winter where we even had access to the abandoned runway.
Britni and Dayne both got ready at Dayne’s parents’ home in Washington, PA and you can see why – it’s a beautiful old home!
After the getting ready, we all headed to their home church, Church of the Covenant, for the ceremony.
Following the ceremony, we made a quick stop across the street on the W&J campus for photos before heading to Bella Sera. Britni really liked the pond at Bella Sera, so we made sure to get photos there before the sun went down!
Family and friends partied the night away at Bella Sera! Congratulations, you two! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always!

Robin and Tom got married on a chilly fall day at the Embassy Suites in Moon Township – we had so much fun working with them!
Robin honored her mother by placing a red rose on an empty chair during the ceremony. I loved seeing Robin’s dad’s first look with her. Her gown and its lace back was beautiful.
After the ceremony, we went around the property at the Embassy Suites before heading into the reception.
These two even ducked out of the reception for a few minutes to let me get a photo I’d been thinking about/planning for a few years at this venue.
The garter removal got a little wild and crazy!
Congratulations, you two! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always!

These two had the hashtag #deleckiest couple based on their last name! It was such a joy to work with them! I want to share all about their day! These two met at Ohio Northern University at a friend’s birthday party.
The ladies got ready at Hyatt House Southside – this hotel is newer and modern – very convenient for J. Verno receptions and Circuit Center receptions – two of my favorite venues.
The guys met us at J. Verno for some getting ready photos – and I loved having the chance to use the space without any people in it for some fun groomsmen photos.

When I think back on this wedding – one thing that stands out to me is that we had a nice amount of time to do portraits all over town – from Oakland to behind the church in Bloomfield, to the Hot Metal Bridge. I was so delighted to have this opportunity to get lots of different backgrounds, poses, and just let the couple and their friends have fun riding around in the limo!
Thanks for climbing up there for this shot – I love this different take on the columns!
And there was some beautiful sunlight behind the church to after a light sprinkle of rain earlier in the day! I love Christina and Justin’s connection to each other.
As usual, J. Verno was beautiful – the chandeliers, the uplighting, the pinspot lighting on the centerpieces. Christina and Justin chose food stations for their reception dinner, which was a nice alternative to a traditional buffet.
After dinner, their dance floor lit up with guests and glow sticks and neon wands! Congratulations, you two! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always!

Thanks so much to you two, Christina and Justin! I am truly grateful and wish we could do it all again every Saturday!
I knew Katie was going to be a fun bride when her profile photo in email was of a character from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia!
We met up with these two for a fun fall session – and we got SO lucky. See, the North Shore lighting is challenging – but on this night, for some reason, PNC Park turned their lights on, perfectly illuminating the couple!
We also ventured around Schenley Park too and the Point.
Congratulations, you two! I can’t wait for your wedding!
