Callie and Brian were married in September and I had the pleasure of second-shooting the wedding with Alex, who is normally my sidekick on weddings by Captivating Imagery. It was a fun opportunity to switch it up. Because of the tight schedule for Callie and Brian’s wedding day, we added a third shooter, Erica, who helped to capture some of the fantastic details at Callie and Brian’s wedding. So naturally, this post is a collaborative effort.

Katie and Dan were married just over a week ago in Katie’s hometown of Uniontown, Pa., about an hour outside of Pittsburgh. Alex and I photographed this happy couple’s engagement session in Pittsburgh this past fall. And it was great to catch up with them again when we met a week before their wedding to go over the details and schedule of their day. When it came time for the big day, everything went smoothly and Katie was at ease and, might I mention, simply stunning. Here are some of the details we found while she was getting ready.
The portrait of Katie in her robe (above) is by Alex and she is lit by the window light from her childhood bedroom. It’s not often that we get to photograph brides in the homes where they grew up, so this was a really special moment. And here she is, standing by her front door.
Katie and Dan were married at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Uniontown. I really like the style of painting at the front of the sanctuary there. It reminded me of something you’d find in an Alphonse Mucha opera poster. Although, it might be hard to tell in this composite—it’s tough to choose what goes in this blog, so I’m covering the ceremony in one fell swoop. Also, I’d like to note that Alex and I work together throughout the day and his work is scattered all throughout my blog. We each go into the day looking to capture certain moments and its always fun to find moments like the one below of Katie just minutes before she walked down the aisle.
I did a sneak peek of this Pittsburgh wedding about a week ago and purposefully only included three black and white photographs of Colleen as she was getting ready and on her way to the church. It was a bit of a tease and I didn’t mean it to be that way, but wanted to build a little bit of anticipation and bide some time so that I could edit the complete wedding and choose some favorites. I’m happy to finally post a full re-cap of Colleen and Zack’s wedding photography. So here goes!
Colleen and her bridesmaids got ready at her parent’s home. In the living room, they had a large window that was just perfect for all of the girls to do the make-up.
We didn’t have to go far for some lovely portraits of Colleen. And she is breath-taking!
I adore this bouquet with blush roses, cream roses and peonies. It’s so elegant.
And here is Zack, the groom, looking dapper as ever.
This is one of my favorite moments of the day. There is so much emotion as Colleen walks down the aisle.
The Duquesne University Chapel is a gorgeous setting for a wedding ceremony and the staff are very friendly and helpful there.
Another thing that I love about this Pittsburgh chapel is that as a wedding photographer, I am allowed to get some great angles of the couple during the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we headed to Grant Street for some fun shots of the bridal party.
Then we headed to the West End Overlook for some portraits and this photo of Colleen and Zack walking away is one of my favorites. The light was just naturally perfect. I wouldn’t have changed a thing—it was surely a gift from God.
Colleen and Zack’s wedding colors were blue and orange and they really incorporated their colors into the reception with their cake and uplighting.
And last, but not least, a photo from their first dance.
Colleen and Zack are so sweet and in love. It’s so much fun to be around newlyweds and it was an honor to be a part of their wedding. Colleen and Zack, congratulations on your marriage and many blessings to you!
