Alyssa and Tyler — Pittsburgh Engagement Photographer

05/09/2017

Having met during the first year of pharmacy school at the University of Pittsburgh, Alyssa and Tyler thought that the Oakland campus area was the perfect location for their engagement session.   While career and life has taken them away to the beautiful state of North Carolina, Pittsburgh very much holds a special place in their hearts as this is where they initially connected and formed special life-long memories.  We always (always!) enjoy photographing engagement sessions in locations that are not only full of great light and loaded with interesting architecture but, most importantly, are meaningful to our couples.   Places where you spent time or enjoyed together or a place where the beginnings of your life as a couple first began.  Not only will your photographs be beautiful but we promise that they will have a deeper meaning to you in the years to come.  

We had a great time wandering the Oakland area, going between the Cathedral of Learning, Heinz Memorial Chapel and the Mellon Institute and all the awesome green spaces in between.  Since that first year in school,  Alyssa and Tyler have been inseparable and are very excited to take their first steps in life as a married couple the summer of 2017 — we can’t wait to photograph their day at The Chadwick in the Pittsburgh suburb of Wexford!

Here are a few of our favorites from the day!

Free spirits and  two of the most authentic and wonderful people you could know.  We can’t wait for this weekend at the Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel!   Here are some of our favorites from their summer engagement sessions in our Centre Market studio and just up the street in and around Wheeling’s  fantastic Later Gator restaurant.

Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer — Nicole and Ken’s Engagement

06/15/2015

On a recent evening in beautiful light, we met up with Nicole and Ken to shoot their engagement portraits.  Having met at the University of Pittsburgh and first residing in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh, we decided to shoot in Arsenal Park.  While a ball game was going on around us, we made some beautiful images with the suit cases that Nicole and Ken brought with them — their fall wedding is travel-inspired, as a shared interest.  Afterwards, we had a great time getting to know each other better over tacos and drinks at the nearby Cantina restaurant (hint: the brisket tacos are so, so good!)  We are honored to document their wedding this coming fall and until then, here are a few of our favorite images from our evening.

Lenka and Cory’s Studio Engagement Photography Session

05/31/2015

We love a classic studio engagement session!  For their engagement portraits, Lenka and Cory were looking for a session that was more fashion oriented and we had a great time together in our Wheeling studio, with multiple wardrobe changes and looks.   These two have such a natural sense of style and grace — these images will stand the test of time.   We are really looking forward to photographing their upcoming wedding. Here are a few of our favorites.

Holly and Nick’s Engagement Photography – Heritage Port and downtown Wheeling

07/04/2014

Holly and Nick are one of those really fun couples that are game for just about anything.  They met in high school, dated  through college at West Liberty and are getting married later this year.  We spent a beautiful evening wandering around downtown Wheeling starting with some shots just outside of our 14th Street Studio and then made our way down to the Centre Market area.  Hustling up to the Heritage Port area next to the Ohio River —  just in time for sunset —  put the wraps on a fun session with a couple of silhouettes.  We can’t wait to photograph their upcoming wedding in Wintersville, Ohio at Blessed Sacrament followed by an evening reception at the William’s Country Club in nearby Weirton.  Here are some of our favorites from the evening.
