Jamie and David got lucky… despite the deluge of rain Pittsburgh has seen over the past couple of weeks, they got a not-too-hot, not-too-cold dry day for their wedding. That’s my favorite kind of weather, too, so I was quite happy for it to be the one to officially start my wedding photography season.

Color of the day: purple. These are Jamie’s shoes.

undefinedWhile I was with Jamie and her bridesmaids, my second shooter Aaron Varga was with groom David at his house. Love the reflection here.

undefinedMatron of honor Lisa. I know that you don’t hire your potential matrons of honor… but Lisa was amazing. So supportive, helpful, and thoughtful. I feel like I want to recommend her just like I recommend other vendors I love to work with. Even if it doesn’t really make any sense… I think she may be a little busy with her adorable 6-month-old most of the time…undefinedHere’s Jamie, ready to get in the limo and go get married. undefined

After the ceremony, we headed over to the North Shore. There were a lot of out-of-towners in the group who were impressed at how beautiful downtown Pittsburgh is. No secret to those of us who live here, of course.
