  • Welcome to Krystal Healy Photography – The Blog

Im always excited to share new weddings with you all, but this one I am SUPER excited about.  I have a few favorite wedding venues around Pittsburgh (Okay about 10 favorites really – I like a lot of things folks…) so I am ALWAYS pumped when I get the chance to go to the favorites.  This wedding here for you today has not one, but TWO favorites.  Sabrina and Brian had a gorgeous ceremony in Phipps Conservatory followed by pictures in downtown Pittsburgh, and capped off with more pictures and their reception at Pittsburgh’s PPG Zoo and Aquarium.  Theres not much I like more than that, let me tell you!

The entire day was fantastic from start to finish – just wait until you take a look at some of the highlights! (Be sure to check out their ADORABLE dog who makes an appearance with the boys – all dressed up in his wedding attire!)

I could not get over how much I loved Sabrina’s wedding invitations! So classic.  Who doesn’t love black and white!?

I mean where else can you have a lush tropical rainforest reception with sea otters, penguins, a touch tank and possible polar bear sighting? I LOVE THE PITTSBURGH ZOO AND AQUARIUM!

Oh Tiffany and Jeff! I had SUCH A BLAST at your wedding.  

:)
Seriously you all missed a good one.  They had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and then indoor reception over in West Virginia’s Mountaineer Casino.  A Mountaineer Casino wedding! It was SO MUCH FUN.  The side of the casino had fake building fronts that reminded me of Disney World. Anything that reminds me of Disney gets an A++ in my book! ha.  The weather was perfect – Blue skies and sunshine all the way! The ceremony was outside in the courtyard followed by the reception inside the Casino!

I had the privilege of photographing Kim & Matt a few weeks ago.  I love utilizing the finest places that Pittsburgh has to offer.  Hartwood Acres is among my favorite of spots for a Pittsburgh Engagement Session besides the actual city of course.   We had a great time.  Or I did and they just went along with me.  Ha.  We TRIED to get the deer in one of the images but they were to fast for me.  No matter though – deer or not, we got some fabulous images.  I think you will all agree.

Please enjoy a collection of my favorites from their session.  Id love to hear which image is your favorite in the comments! Anyway, looking forward to the wedding next year lovebirds! Ill be seeing you sooner than you realize!

We are back for part three of Ricky and Christy’s wedding.  If you need to catch up, here is part one - and here is part two!  Today is the final and third part – The reception! We had such a fun time capturing the celebration of this couple and their family and friends.  We even got to see a past KHP couple! (Hey Kim and Pete!) — Actually Pete was a groomsmen so we hung out most of the day and I got to see his gorgeous wife later! Anyway Christy had the most perfect decorations!  You’ll see them in a minute

;)
Without further ado – the final part of the evening!

Those last few night shots are my FAVORITE!  

The Brides advice for those planning: “Get as much done as you can in the time leading up to the wedding. That will allow you to completely enjoy the day, and have a blast! The day of the wedding- take deep breaths! “
