Wonderful photographer! He and his wife Linda
were incredible- they made us feel so comfortable
in front of the camera and they captured every
element of our special day from details and
candids to formal portraits of us and our families.
Our pictures are absolutely stunning and I know I
will love looking at them forever. I cannot
recommend Ron Pradetto Photography enough!

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. The
galleries of Michigan @ Purdue,
Louisville @ Pitt and Rutgers @
Pitt can be seen by clicking on

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

"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

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

Barnesville Rails to Trails 5K
Cool temperatures and bright sunshine

Anthony & Nicole's Wedding

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

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. Click on the photos or

The Osiris Shrine in Elm Grove,

Jeanette & Garrett's country

Not only is Jacobsburg, Ohio our

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

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
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

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.
July 27, 2014
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.
