Mellon Green – Downtown Pittsburgh

Why is Mellon Green a good choice for wedding photos or an engagement session?

  • Very pretty small park; beautiful flowers, nice fountain with huge stone blocks. Very convenient to the Omni William Penn, Hotel Monaco and Doubletree Hotel. Right on top of the Steel Plaza T Station.

Any caveats?

  • Not a lot of parking nearby, but there are a few places you can pull over and park for a few minutes.

Please don’t overlook what time of day your photo session will take place! Note that each photo has a not-particularly-attractive time stamp on it. Why did I put these ugly numbers all over these photos? Because time of day is critical to creating beautiful photos. And time of day is fluid depending on the time of year. For example, 6:30pm might be the perfect time of day for photos at the North Shore in May… but if you go at 6:30pm in November, it’s going to be dark. Be sure to consult a sunset calculator so you know when it will be getting dark on the day of your shoot. Better yet – ask your photographer!
