Summer has started (unofficially)

Summer in Pittsburgh is a crazy time for photographers. With nearly every weekend booked with a wedding or a shoot between now and October, a few open weekends are time best spent with family and friends, fishing, brewing, biking, and cooking.

We started the weekend in Pittsburgh, and then headed up to the family farm in the Laurel Highlands, for some fly fishing, and cooking out.

Then ended back in Oakmont on Monday so that I could cover a few Memorial Day Parades for the Valley News Dispatch (CLICK TO SEE THE PHOTOS AND READ THE ARTICLE)












 

I hope you had a wonderful long weekend, and are ready for the adventures ahead.

Adam and Adrienne are Married-Antiochian Village Wedding

Ive known Adam for a large portion of my life. While we weren’t great friends, we skateboarded and hung out in our younger years, and had mutual friends that caused our paths to cross every so often. When Adam and his fiance’ came to to us for their wedding photography needs, I was excited to work with an old friend. In the process I got to know Adam better, and Adrienne became a new friend.

You can see their engagement session Here.

Their wedding day was beautiful. We started with Adrienne and her girls getting ready at her childhood home, before heading to St Michael’s Orthodox Church for the ceremony. After a beautiful ceremony, we headed to Antiochian Village  for the wedding reception. The room looked incredible. Adrienne pulled the details together beautifully.

One of the things I love about weddings is that its friends and family coming together to celebrate. When everyone is having a good time, it really shows.

Enjoy the photos.

Adam and Adrienne-Early Morning Coffee Session-Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

It was a late night, and a long weekend. Sleep was cut short by the sound of my alarm. Normally this is where the hand snakes out, hits snooze, and nudges Kelly. Its my way of sleeping and trying to get her up for work. Ava our lab, jumps onto the bed, and kisses Kelly while whining for me to take her out. This Monday morning, it was so early that even Ava wanted to stay in bed. I took a cold shower to wake up, and made my way outside. I was heading into Regent Square for an engagement session that by most standards was taking place way to early.

Leaving early means I missed all the traffic. With time to kill, I headed to Square Cafe, ordered 3 cappuccino’s and enjoyed the realization that mornings are beautiful. Most people hate mornings because it signifies another day at work. For me, its when I take care of the dog, then grind some coffee as the water boils. Its a morning ritual. Wake up. Nudge Kelly. Turn on the shower. Take care of Ava. Make Coffee. By the time I push the plunger on the French Press, Kelly is getting ready for work. Im watching the news.

This morning was different. No Ava. No waking Kelly. No time for coffee.

The sun was low in the sky when I pulled up to Adam and Adrienne’s new home. We had shot an engagement session in December, and a miserable winter mist had covered Pittsburgh. At one point, I had to put my camera under my jacket because mist had turned to a freezing rain. They were troopers and we kept shooting. Finishing inside for a few more photos while they talked and enjoyed a cocktail. On this Monday, it was perfect. Their neighborhood was quietly waking up, as I handed them their coffee. We headed onto the porch to shoot. All the images were shot within a block of their home. Great light, and love are all that are required for great photos. I can supply the light in the event of bad weather. The rest is up to you.

Enjoy the photos.
