Allie & Steve got married outside at the Richland Township Barn in the North Hill. Allie amazed me throughout the entire wedding planning process. Each time we talked about her plans I grew more and more impressed. She and Steve don't live in the area, so they were planning from out of town. On top of that Allie decided to DIY a lot of her wedding - not just decor. She made all the bouquets & boutonnieres, the decor for the venue & ceremony, and she even made their wedding cake (and it was so amaaaazing!).
During the wedding, she even managed to sneak in a surprise for Steve. Allie hired Bruster's to serve ice cream cones to all the guests in the evening. It was an incredible night of fun!

Taylor and Christian had an amazing wedding day at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. How can you go wrong when you get married in the Hall of Architecture!? Plus, photo opportunities with the dinosaurs and in the Music Foyer are beyond amazing.
Laura & Ryan are the sweetest, most hard-working people. A week after their wedding, they BOTH finished up MBAs - how crazy is that!? For their wedding, they went with a winter/glam vibe, especially apparent in the champagne & gold decor, fur wrap, and abundant candles at their reception. I loved every second of it. You could just see how much they love each other.
Below are a few things wedding photographers wish their clients knew about wedding photography. Read these 7 tips before booking yours so you know exactly what to expect.
These days it’s pretty common for couples to hire a wedding photographer to capture the big moment. It takes away the stress of wondering if the pictures will come out well and you can use them for your save-the-dates or as a way to share the engagement news with loved ones.
Finding the right vendor for you can be tough, especially the right photographer. After all, they’re capturing the most important day of your life! It’s crucial to ask the right questions so you have all the information you need before making a decision. Here’s a few things I think you should ask before making things official.
Karen & Mike had a gorgeous day for their wedding. Bright sunflowers livened up the outdoor tent, and a penguin even made an appearance to celebrate the day!
Their first look was held next to their venue at Allegheny Commons Park. Then we drove down to the North Shore on a vintage bus to take pictures along the North Shore.
Jenn & Brad are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Their wedding exemplified that, full of adorable rustic decor, bright sunflowers, and plenty of entertainment for guests. They had a field for lawn games, giant Jenga, and even a bonfire at the end of the night (yes, with s'mores!).
Tracy & Eddie had a small, intimate ceremony with just close friends and family on the rooftop of Hotel Monaco. To kick off the day I photographed a bit of getting ready, followed by an emotional first look between them. Then we explored the hotel and the city for some great portraits.
One thing’s for sure when it comes to your wedding day—the moment you see your significant other for the first time, all dressed up for the occasion, is bound to be a memorable one. Some couples are choosing this moment to happen before they walk down the aisle, while others are sticking with the more traditional route and waiting until the ceremony to see each other. There’s no right or wrong choice, but if you’re on the fence, here are a few pros and cons to having one.
