She is an instructor of writing composition at Community College of Allegheny County; he, a professor mechanical engineering, engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University. She has a passion for the performing arts, having written and performed two one-woman shows among her accomplishments. He has a passion for his research, photography (yeah!), and music, and plays a mean guitar. Both have a passion for social justice, the environment, and more than anything, each other.
Last week I had the pleasure of photographing, and exploring Pittsburgh with a delightful couple. I can think of one word that would best describe Molly and J: awesome. Spend a few minutes with these two and you will see what a cool, fun, witty, creative, and nice couple they are.
We started at the fountain at the Point. This was my first time at the point, and oh my goodness, I never realized how humongous the fountain is. It was not running yet, which was fine because we a had a clear shot of Heinz field in the background.
Here is J looking cool by the edge of the river. This could be the cover shot for his CD.
In this one I shot with a slow shutter speed to make the speeding cars blur.
So sweet, putting a blossom in her hair.
Cool action shot. These two are much braver than I! Molly made the leap in clogs, no less.
I love the feel of this image, and the vibrant orange color. And OMG, does Molly not have the most ridiculously beautiful blue eyes you have ever seen?
I have always wanted to do a shot like this, and luckily the stars were in alignment for me this evening: awesome couple+beautiful weather+low traffic = timeless image that I am just giddy over.
Molly and J will be celebrating their commitment to one another Memorial Day weekend, and I can not wait! Thanks for an amazing time, M & J!
