Samantha + Matt | Mellon Park Engagement Session

Samantha + Matt lucked out with a beautiful fall day in the burgh. We have literally had rain almost every weekend and I thought the leaves would all be gone. But fall held on this year, I think Mother Nature knew we needed to have a few days to enjoy the season before winter strikes.

Sam + Matt wanted to start their session in Shadyside because they met at Mario’s on Walnut St and I can’t resist incorporating an important location! Our second stop was the Walled Garden at Mellon Park. Fall perfection commenced!

Rachel + Steve | Oakland Schenley Park Engagement Session

Oh, those summer nights.

I hope you’re flashing back to Danny Zuko singing in the bleachers. :) One of my favorite movies. But it’s true, those summer nights where the sun never seems to set are the best. Especially when I get to enjoy the evening with one of my fabulous couples!

Phipps was where Steve proposed to Rachel so why not have their engagement session there too!

Bryn + Paul | Hotel Monaco Wedding

Bryn and Paul are (FINALLY) married!

After 8 years together, a cross country move, and couple of tattoos, these two tied the knot at the  Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh. Even their pup, Nora, got to celebrate with them since the Hotel Monaco is pet friendly!! 

Bryn was stunning in her Enaura Bridal gown from Kleinfeld's. Paul wore black tie which is always a favorite in my book! The space was home to the ceremony and reception. Florals had a touch of boho and cabernet accents from Mt Lebanon Floral. 

One of my favorite parts of they day was their first dance! They KILLED it! Their song was Nina Simone - Feeling Good, which was a nice departure from the typical first dance tunes. Then they surprised everyone with an incredible first dance and some epic dips. It was so fun to watch the crowds reaction! We ended the night the best way possible - with puppy kisses from their fur baby, Nora. 

Congratulations to the newlyweds!!
