This past Sunday was a wild and unpredictable weeather day. While it was pouring and thundering at my house around 5pm, thankfully an hour later the skies cleared and we had a perfect evening for MacKenzie and David’s engagement session. We met at Station Square, then took the Duquesne Incline up to Mount Washington and enjoyed the view. Here are a few of my favorites.

A special thanks to Susan Montemurro, who I like to call “mom” for coming along on this session to help with lighting. Small world alert: while riding the incline back down, for no apparent reason I said something to my mom in Spanish. This makes little sense because my Spanish isn’t very good, and she speaks Italian. So she answered me in Italian, and the couple next to us overheard, saying, oh you speak Italian? So do we. A little bit more conversation and it turns out that this couple lives in the same Philadelphia suburb as my mom. Crazy!
