Jessica and Henry don’t live in Pittsburgh. They’re not getting married in Pittsburgh. But this wonderful city has special significance to them, because Pittsburgh is where they met. Both studied engineering – Jessica at Pitt, and Henry at Carnegie Mellon. So what better place for their engagement photos than the campuses of their schools?

Flexibility definitely paid off for this photo session, because our first scheduled time to meet was rained out. But thankfully all three of us are early risers and were able to fit their shoot in the next morning in some beautiful early summer morning sunlight.

I love Oakland and these two campuses! My husband graduated from Pitt, and now works at CMU, so it was quite fun to visit some of my favorite places on each campus.

Best of luck to you, Jessica and Henry!
