Jill and Josh Recap: Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Jill and Josh dated from the time they met in high school, and were married just a little while ago.

Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding! After the ceremony we headed down to The Point for a few photos. It was really early and the sun was overhead, so we found some open shade to take the photos, then headed out to the Airport Marriott for the reception and shot some more photos in their gardens. We barely made it to the car when moments later the skies opened up on us and we got pounded by rain.

Anyways guys, I hope you have a happy and blessed life together.

On to the photos:

Adele Wechsler

Angel Sanchez

Jenny Packham

As many of you know, Ive spent a few months over there, and this trip is awesome because of the long term effects their work will have on the people that they will directly be in contact with. Way too cool! So head over there and check out the blog. If posts don’t seem regular, its because internet is hit or miss over there, as is the power supply in the more remote ares. Till next time…

Maria and BJ: Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

I met Maria and BJ the day of their wedding. We had talked a few times on the phone, but it wasnt until that day, that we actually met. Guys thanks for making me feel so welcome!

They were married over Memorial Day Weekend at Old St. Luke’s: a cute historical church that held a nice intimate setting for a very cool wedding.

Then we headed to Mt. Washington for some formal photos, and as our luck had it, it rained during the ceremony, and after just a little bit, but when we got to the overlook, the skies were beautiful.

Then the three of us headed down to Station Square to shoot some fun photos of just Maria and BJ.

The reception was on the Gateway Clipper, and they danced the night away.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your day. Here are some of your much awaited photos.

Jamie and Adam: Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Jamie and Adam were united with each other in front of God and Family in mid May.

They met each other years ago at a Steelers game: now years later, they are in Canada as Adam works with the Olympic committee to help coordinate the Torch Relay across Canada.

Good luck guys, I wish you the best and I may have to come visit this winter to shoot some more photos for you, and maybe take a trip up to the ski slope!

Enjoy a preview of your day.

I love this dress!

Check out my photos on KISS ONLINE and Paul Stanley’s Website!

So today I was in Boogie Street Guitars and I found out that the newest photos that I shot of the Washburn PS5 Racing Red Guitar is on the front page of the Kiss Website, as well as on Paul Stanley’s Website!

BooYah! It’s always exciting to see my photos on a huge website like that! And the guitar really is SIIIIICK!

This past Tuesday I hosted a get together for a few local photographers out at my families farm in Ligonier. I brought out two kick ass models Rachel, and Nikkie, and along with Walt Urbina, Don Merz of Ovation Images, Leeann Golish of Diem Photography, and Dana Scheller I tromped them over the country side and into barns and fields. This was just a chance to get out of the office and shoot and hang with other photographers and help eachother out. Guys, I hope you had as much fun as I did. Goodtimes.

Now for the goodness!


I have some wedding images coming soon from the past two weddings, and am super excited to blog them, Im just gonna wait till the couples are jumping outta their skin a lil bit more (j/k). They’ll be up real soon. Promise!
