I’ve been so lucky to photograph three weddings so far at Phipps Conservatory in the 2012 wedding season. Phipps is definitely a favorite location of mine here in Pittsburgh, but what I learned at Lucia and Jon’s wedding is that there are many great locations on Carnegie Mellon’s campus and it’s all within walking distance. Lucia and Jon planned an intimate wedding for their very closest family and friends, and they only wanted photographers for part of the day, so they took advantage of our partial day coverage. And in just four hours, I think they made the most of it which makes me very happy! We met for some portraits before the ceremony at Carnegie Mellon.
We spent about two hours traversing the campus and making portraits at locations that are special to Lucia and Jon. They met at CMU and shared many wonderful memories there.
Their ceremony took place in the Broderie Room at Phipps. And we had the perfect weather for a ceremony in the Broderie Room, which is normally very warm and humid during the summer months. With all of the rain we’ve been having lately, the Broderie Room was very pleasant.
After the ceremony we did some family portraits in the Broderie Room and then headed back to CMU, for a nighttime portrait on the Randy Pausch Bridge.
What a great day! Congrats to Lucia and Jon! Many blessing to you and your marriage.
Laura and Keith were married at The Villa in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Springwood Conference Center. It was one of those steamy hot days in June, but that didn’t get in the way. This wedding was full of joy and fun. We started with Laura getting ready inside The Villa. One of my favorite photos from the day is the one of Laura and her flower girls. The ladies in this family have gorgeous blue eyes and Laura’s nieces are just adorable!
It’s been a long time since my first meeting with Rebecca when we talked about her what she envisioned for her wedding photography. And over the past year, it has been so exciting to see it all come together. From her studio bridal session, to the details at her reception, I have been anticipating a gorgeous wedding with gobs of great details—for a wedding photographer, that is like being a kid in a candy store! We started with Rebecca and her bridesmaids getting ready at the posh Izazzu salon in downtown Pittsburgh. And then we met up with Brad at The Priory where he and the guys were dressed and ready to go.
I posted about Lisa and Josh’s love lock story last week and now, I’m ready to share it all—every last scrumptious detail! Lisa and Josh were so much fun to spend the day with. They flew in from their new abode in San Francisco. And I must say, I’m really impressed at how they did such a fabulous job planning this wedding from out of town. It went so smoothly—without a hitch, and the details were gorgeous! We started with Lisa getting ready at the Hampton Inn in Oakland.
Whew! I’m a bit behind on my blogging after a very busy month of May with lots and lots of shooting. It’s been great and I’ll have lots to show for it in the next few weeks, but now I’d like to focus on a beautiful wedding that took place at Phipps Conservatory. Stephanie and Ed were married in the Broderie room and it couldn’t have been lovelier! Between the lush greenery at Phipps and the beautiful blooms in Stephanie’s bouquet by Hepatica, I can’t think of the last time I saw such gorgeous flowers.
