Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer | Christina Montemurro bio picture
  • Hello! I’m Christina.

    Welcome! If you're looking for a wedding or portrait photographer in the Pittsburgh area, you're in the right place.

    Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make during your wedding planning. It's so important to find someone you can trust to capture the big and small moments of your wedding day, and someone who makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

    I'm known for being laid back and relaxed, and respect that this is your day to celebrate and enjoy. My goal is to get you beautiful images efficiently and unobtrusively so that you have lots of time for fun.

Katie & Chris – engagement session on Pittsburgh’s North Shore

Katie and Chris grew up and met here in Pittsburgh, but now live in DC. Given that Pittsburgh has resembled Seattle more than anything else this spring, we were very lucky to have a beautiful Friday evening for their engagement session.

Our original plan of meeting at Rivertowne in the Del Monte building was thwarted by an unprecedented crowd of people all over the North Shore. Apparently there was a concert by a group that I’d never heard of at the new American Eagle venue. Since there was a lengthy wait for Rivertowne, we headed over to the Tilted Kilt instead. For those of you who, like us, had never been to the Tilted Kilt, here’s a little insider information: it’s something of a Scottish Hooters. Enough said?

After a quick round, we wandered around the North Shore amongst the concertgoers (and also promgoers – there was a prom at PNC Park!). Smiles all around for Katie and Chris.

En route to an outfit change, I spotted this moody patch of sky. Amazing how the cloud formation made a heart out of the sun!undefinedThanks to Nicki for coming along to help with lighting.undefinedundefinedundefined

Thanks Katie and Chris! Can’t wait for your July wedding at the Heinz History Center.

Cooling off during Memorial Day Weekend

It’s been hot this weekend! I took advantage of a wedding-free weekend to plant some lilies, foxgloves and osteospermum. After the boys got tired of digging alongside me in the dirt, they entertained themselves for quite some time with the garden hose.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

    I’m always using the word “adorable” when I talk about your children, but it’s really the best word for them. I love the expressions, bright sunlight, and temporary tattoos in these images. <3
