We finally found time to post the galleries of the final three college football games that I shot this year. I was able to see Denard Robinson play quarterback for Michigan, the Big East's best team in Louisville and Ray Graham lead the band after his final home game at Pitt.

Emilia & Chris's Wedding
Immaculate Heart of Mary Church

January 28, 2013

In November we had the privilege of shooting Emilia and Chris's wedding at the magnificent Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in the Polish Hill section of Pittsburgh. We will be posting some images of the church itself at a later date. Emilia was terrific at posing even though the long train made it difficult for her to move. Chris was once named one of the ten most eligible college men in America.Click on either the image or the caption below it to view the gallery.

"Save the Date" Announcements
We love doing engagement sessions because not only does it give us a chance to meet the couple but the sessions also allow us to capture the couple as they truly are without the time constraints associated with shooting on the wedding day. We can create beautiful "Save the Date" postcards such as the examples shown. Contact us to inquire about FREE engagement photo shoots. Click here or on one of the cards to see more examples.

Barnesville Park/Rotary Lake 5k Walk/Run
Barnesville, Ohio

April 7, 2013

The Rotary Lake in Barnesville, Ohio provided a nice background to shoot the 5K run/walk yesterday. Over 200 people participated and the weather cooperated with a sunny, but cool, morning. My wife Linda took the photos around the lake and she unofficially participated in the walk as she had to hike all the way down the hill to the lake and back up it. Meanwhile I had it easy and hung around the start line to shoot the start and finish of the race. To see the full galllery simply click on the photograph to the right of this blog or the caption below it.

Anthony & Nicole's Wedding
July 13, 2013

We got the chance to photograph a wedding party for the first time at Mt. Washington overlook of Pittsburgh. We only had a few minutes there with Nicole and Anthony so we really didn't have any time to get too creative. I asked Anthony to dip Nicole for the photo that we are displaying as one of our favorites.

We are posting a few of our favorite photos from the day along with all of the formal group photos.Click on the photo or the caption below it to see them. Just contact us if you have any questions about purchasing a photo(s).

Chris & Jen's Wedding
June 29, 2013

A lake at the White Barn in Prospect, Pa provided the backdrop for Chris and Jen's beautiful wedding. A rainshower after the ceremony created the conditions for a spectacular sunset that lasted only a few minutes. We were fortunate to capture some images of the bride and groom during sunset and they are some of our favorites.

Jeanette & Garrett's country wedding September 21, 2013

Not only is Jacobsburg, Ohio our home but it is one of the most beautiful, serene country settings that you could find. Yesterday's rain yielded a terrific sunset. Jeanette rode a horse and climbed a barn and a hay bale. My kind of bride!! What a beautiful country wedding! Please click on link above or any of the images to view a gallery form the wedding.

Barnesville Santa's Spirit Sprint

The 27 degree weather was cold and there was snow on the ground but that didn't stop the hardy souls that came out for the 2013 annual Santa's Spirit Sprint in Barnesville, Ohio on December 7, 2013. Unique handmade Christmas trophies were awarded. Linda shot the start of the race and I shot the finish which was being bathed by a waning December sun.

One Special Moment-Two Photographers' Perspectives

Why should you want two photographers to capture your wedding day? Well, here is a good example. Linda and I both captured the romantic end to the first dance. As you can see we both got terrific shots but they are from two totally different angles. You might like one more than the other or both equally. Either way, the bride and groom now have two memorable images of this special moment.

Heather & Ed's wedding
March 8, 2014

Hope you all enjoy the photos of Heather and Ed as much as Linda and I enjoyed taking them. Both Ed and Heather were very "camera friendly" which made it much easier to get terrific images of them. When you add a classy venue and a fun crowd to a very loving couple you end up with all the best that you can get at a wedding. Congratulations Heather and Ed and thanks for choosing us.

I think engagement photos should be romantic instead of the same, tired poses. I love this photo of Mike and Adrienne that we took recently. Some say it could be a photo for a perfume ad.

It has been a really busy wedding season so we have gotten way behind in our blog. We do keep current on our Facebook page so be sure to check it out also.

I love this classic wedding photo of Adrienne whose engagement photo was featured in our last post. The key is getting the bride off the altar and into the aisle so that background distractions can be minimized. Then add off-camera flash shot through an umbrella and pose your bride to end up with a terrific photo like this.

There are so many wonderful sights for taking wedding photos in Pittsburgh and we visited many of them when photographing Nataliia and Artem on their wedding day this summer. Their bridal party toured the city prior to the wedding which allowed us the time to shoot at all of these great locations identified with our featured photos. Click on any of the five images to see a gallery from the wedding. Click here for an overview of our wedding galleries.
