Michelle & Chuck | Expecting

I’ve been photographing some beautiful baby bumps lately!  I had an absolute blast taking Michelle and Chuck’s maternity photos; we couldn’t decide between a traditional elegant look or a modern lifestyle approach for their photos, so we did a little of both!

I love how Michelle and Chuck decorated the nursery!

Chuck has an adorable book by Mercer Mayer that his mom gave to him when he was a little boy.  Now he can pass it on to his own little boy.

Michelle and Chuck, I can’t wait to meet your little man Drew!!

Kim & Ron | St. Patrick’s Day Wedding

Kim and Ron must have had the luck of the Irish on their side, because their wedding on St. Patrick’s Day had gorgeous weather and went off without a hitch!  Their ceremony was held at St. Anne’s in Castle Shannon, followed by a stop at the West End Overlook, and then an awesome reception at the Doubletree By Hilton at the Meadows.  Such a great couple and a fun bridal party–I couldn’t  have asked for more!

 

Love the stained glass at the back of St. Anne’s.

Killer ring shot by my good friend Aaron Varga who was shooting with me that day.

Congratulations, Kimmy and Ronnie!!!  I wish you many happy years together!  {{{Hugs}}} Sandy

Katia - You totally rock Sandy!!I love every single picture but the last two are my faves, it takes skill!!LOL

Sandy - Thanks, Katia! :)

Mr. & Mrs. Varga|Anniversary Session

You know what might be even better than an engagement session?  An anniversary session!  My good friend Aaron and his lovely wife Amanda celebrated their first anniversary a few months ago, and asked me to photograph a session to help them celebrate.

My favorite of the session.

Aaron and Amanda’s dog was being such a little stinker while we trying to take pictures at Phipps.  He let us know in no uncertain terms that was not pleased at being kept out of the picture.  He almost blew our cover!  But who could get mad at a mug like that?

What an adorable little clown!

Happy Anniversary, Amanda and Aaron!!

Amanda - Aww. We LOVE our pictures. They are perfect and you are amazing :)

Sandy - Thanks! It was my pleasure. :)

Mr. Dr. Chao Wang - You got it with the colors, your got it with the feelings, you got it with the black and whites, you got it, yes, you got it so that it reminds us of our effort towards the same direction :)
Thanks again

Engagement Photos Pittsburgh|Lindsay & Chris

I knew I like Lindsay and Chris the minute I met them.  They both have warm, easy-going personalities, along with a great sense of humor.  They are just plain fun to be around!  We braved the cold on Friday for a wonderful winter engagement session on the North Shore, and I am so glad we did!  I had the best time documenting their sweet relationship, and I just love how the images turned out.

Thumb wrestling! Yes!

These two photos crack me up every time I look at them.

What a great way to end the session!

Thanks so much, Lindsay and Chris!  Can’t wait for the wedding!!

 

Aaron - Awesome as always! I realllllllllllly like those shots in front of the red brush, and you captured so many fun moments!

Sean’s wedding band was handed down through generations; the date inscribed inside the ring reads Sept. 8, 1891–almost 120 years to the day.

Country Wedding at Lingrow Farm|Amanda & Sean:Part 1

I had the extreme honor and pleasure of photographing the wedding of my close friend and fellow photographer, Amanda.  What a day!  Every sweet and sentimental detail resonated with country elegance and rustic charm.

Julie from Pittsburgh Makeup did a beautiful job as usual.

I loved Amanda’s bouquet by Leechburg Floral, which included wildflowers and a stem wrapped in twine.

Amanda’s cake by Debbie Sutara was to die for.  All those fresh berries!  Believe me when I say it tasted every bit as good as it looked.
