Cody & Rachel | For All Family Farms Wedding |For All Family Farm Wedding | Butler PA Wedding Photographer | Butler PA Farm Wedding | Butler Farm Wedding

Rachel and Cody are two peas in a pod with their love of the outdoors, and for each other. Their beautiful, romantic wedding was perfectly set outside in rolling hills with a glowing sunset, surrounded by loved ones. Rachel looked stunning in her gown, and their cheerful colors of yellow and light gray complimented the rustic features through the barn and ceremony. These two were perfect models–lost in the moment of each other, their vows, and their first dance, everyone was crying (including me) and I could have shot them all day. Their love is beautiful and uplifting to see–I wish them a long and happy life together ❤

I’m so excited to share Brittany and Sean’s wedding! The details were chic and glam, including Brittany’s Kate Spade heels, and Sean’s Rosary from Italy. It’s been a while since I’ve been blogging the weddings I’ve shot, and this one was special because these two are head over heels for each other. Brittany made this day about everyone else–she was so attentive to everyone and wanted all of her guests to have a good time–which they certainly did!

Brittany and Sean opted for a First Look Session for their Bridal Formals, since their ceremony wasn’t until the evening. A First Look breaks the old tradition of waiting until after the ceremony to see each other–I LOVE these because it’s so intimate–it’s a special moment shared just between you and your almost-spouse! We pick a meeting place that you both love a few weeks before and the groom waits for his bride there. She walks up behind him, and when she’s ready, she touches his shoulder. He turns to see him, not just as his love and his girlfriend/wife, but as his BRIDE! The facial expressions, the reactions, the tears…there are no words to describe how fantastic it is to see each partner’s looks and exclamations to each other! It’s just JOYFUL ❤

Trisha & Luke | Butler Wedding Photographer | Butler Wedding Photography | Western PA Wedding Photographer | Home Wedding Photos |Backyard Wedding Photos | Backyard Wedding Photography

One of theee most fun weddings I’ve shot was Trisha and Luke’s–everyone was warm and welcoming, and had a blast together. This wedding was on beautiful day in July, and even though I took a break from blogging, I’m so glad to look back on these pictures on a snow day like today.
From the moment I met Trisha, I knew it would be a crazy day in all the best ways! Luke had “the” hockey team for all his groomsmen, he’s #popularitygoals for sure! The girls cheerful Tiffany Blue dresses showed off Trisha’s energetic and outgoing personality. Hosted by the family, their backyard was the perfect setting for an evening of cigars, cornhole, and catching up. It was a gorgeous day with a glowy sunset, finished off perfectly by a jump in the pool!

Katherine & Forrest | National Aviary Wedding | National Aviary Wedding Photos | Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

I love shooting weddings at The National Aviary! Each time I’ve been there, the event has been fun and flawless. Their staff is fantastic, and the grounds are private and perfect for photos. Your wedding can be colorful and lively, or simple and elegant, as Katherine and Forrest planned for their day. Katherine was one of my most impressive brides–multitasking living out of state, working, obtaining her Doctorate Degree (woot!) and on top of all that, planning a beautiful wedding! Their First Look Session was sweet and relaxed, and their reception was a blast with a bunch of enthusiastic scientists getting to see the array of birds not seen by many. She also decided to host a Penguin Encounter, which is so cute–always a must-see at the Aviary! The fun part at the end of the night was when everyone could sign the Penguin Paintings and made a mash-up of the newlywed Doctors’ names, which are so fun and unique!

We headed to the West End Overlook in Pittsburgh for their bridal portrait. I especially loved the wisteria covered bridge, and their day took place on just the right time for the extremely SHORT blooming season of wisteria! Perfect timing, guys!

The wisteria JUST happened to be in bloom! It was early May, and it was gorgeous. This photo was taken with my 24mm wide angle.

The wisteria in bloom (early May!) gave a beautiful bokeh! This photo was taken with my 50mm to give a different look from the other photo taken with my 24mm wide angle!
