Julie + Chad | Cultural District Engagement Session

Julie and Chad are engaged! We planned a chic downtown engagement session in the heart of Pittsburgh's cultural district. The evening light couldn't have been more perfect and the icing on the cake was that they included their pup, Cannoli! And we all know how I feel about dogs ;)

I simply cannot wait for their LongVue Country Club wedding next September! If Julie's style is any indicator, the details are going to give me ALL the heart eyed emojis! 

Erica + Josh | Settlers Cabin Park Engagement Session

Happy Friday! Erica and Josh are on the blog today! A woodsy engagement session at Settlers Cabin Park. If you have never been to this park you should check it out. It is just outside of Pittsburgh on the way to Robinson. It's huge and has lots of options for summer picnics and even a wave pool.

I met Erica through my brother-in-law, Tyler. The were in nursing school together when Josh proposed to Erica. I remember meeting them at Marty's Market (R.I.P my beloved coffee spot). During our conversation Josh stated he might be a groomzilla. He had helped with the planning so Erica could concentrate on finishing nursing school. I thought that was a hilarious term but totally sweet gesture on his part. It said a lot about Josh's character and love for his future bride. Erica is easy-going and has the brightest smile, especially when joking with Josh. She is so easy to chat with, it was like we were already friends. We continued to play '20 Questions' to get to know each other. It was such a nice change from the typical first meeting with a couple! I loved how easy they were to talk to, how fun they were together and I was so thrilled to be asked to photograph their September nuptials!

Chelsee + James | Oakland Engagement Session

While this Pittsburgh weather can be unpredictable at this time of year, it didn't stop us from traipsing around Oakland and Mellon Park for Chelsee and James's engagement session. When Chelsea and I settled on a location, she said they would be stopping at Dave + Andy's before hand. Immediately, I knew they would be a fun, easy going couple. Anyone who starts their engagement session with food, in this case ice cream, is my kind of couple! Lucky for us all of the Pitt students had headed home for the summer and campus was quiet. I think the .5 seconds of sunlight we saw near the Cathedral of Learning are my favorite photos. We ended our session at Mellon Park before the clouds totally took over. Chelsee + James, I can't wait for your wedding this September.
