Kim | Matt and the Enchanted Garden <3

Kim and Matt seriously had a perfect day! The rain held off long enough for us to get through the morning prep, ceremony AND portraits.  We couldn’t have planned it better! (Well okay if we were in charge of the weather we could have)…

I met up with one of my second shooters for the day (Hey Ashley! Thanks for helping out!) and went to photograph Kim and the girls getting ready. Meanwhile Manny went to hang with Matt and the guys to capture some of their prep.  I love this couple and I love this wedding.  Some highlights for you… Okay there are a LOT – I couldn’t narrow down my favorites.

These two are adorable.  I asked Kim – So, how did he propose? Her answer: ” Apparently the planning had been going on for a while and I was completely oblivious to all of it! My brother and sister-in-law invited me to go to the Monroeville Park with my niece because she wanted to go swinging with me. When I arrived at the park that morning, it was actually closed for a walk. So I called my sister-in-law to let her know so she decided that we could meet at Riverview Park in Oakmont instead. I stopped at home to pick my mom up on the way and we headed down. After playing at the park, my brother suggested walking down to Oakmont Bakery. I was getting anxious because Matt was driving out and I thought we would be late getting back, but he said he was stuck in traffic so I figured we should be ok. As we’re walking down the street, my mom looks across and says “What is Matt doing here?” (I guess I was supposed to see him but didn’t even notice so she had to point him out). I walked across the street and asked him what he was doing there and he said “I think you know why I’m here” and then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES! ” See – Adorable.

Carlos and Melinda 

Gateway Clipper Wedding!

I can’t even tell you all what a FABULOUS time we had at this wedding.  It was my first one back after having Mia and it was a blast.  The Gateway Clipper will always hold a special place for me because it’s where I met my husband Ben! It brings back all the warm and fuzzies.  Not that I needed help in that department on this wedding day – Melinda and Carlos’s families were making me laugh and tear up the whole day.  Everyone was so kind and fun to be around, you can tell how much these two are loved!

Melinda and Carlos met and live in NY – (where they met and fell in love!) but celebrated with us in the burgh where Melinda is from! There story is so cute, I’ll leave it here in Melinda’s own words for you on how he proposed.

“It was the first day of my new job and I stayed late at work. Carlos kept texting me 4,5,6,7 o’clock and I kept replying I was at work and would be home later. He orginally wanted to talk a walk with Grace, our puppy, along the river in the park and propose there but when it got dark he went with option B and he asked if I wanted to go to dinner to celebrate my new job and I declined because it was getting late and I was tired. He then went with option C: cook my favorite meal and ask at home.
I got home at around 8:30 and arrived to a wonderful dinner. Carlos made me a plate and I sat on the couch, unknowingly on the ring. I ate dinner and watched TV and never getting up. Carlos kept trying to get me to move and switch spots. I wasn’t having it, as I was comfortable and telling him about my day. I finally got up and went to take a shower. He finally took the spot on the couch he wanted (where the ring was) and I cuddled up next to him. He told me that he had another motive to staying behind with my parents when Morgan and I went to the rehearsal dinner for Heather. He said he asked my dad to marry me. I thought he was joking and I asked what he said. He said dad said no. I said I you serious and he said no. He was joking and got on one knee and asked me to marry him with the ring. I cried and said yes. “

Newborn Hospital Photos – Aka “Fresh 48″

Being a photographer, I think its important to capture all of these life changing moments on film.  It’s great to have something to look back on and remember. It’s great to have photos with loved ones long after they have gone.  Moments are fleeting, but if preserved in a photo – you can call up the memories at a moments notice.

Of course with our baby girl I want all of the moments captured… While she and I had some hangout time in our hospital room I decided to bust out my medium format film camera and take some portraits of her first full day of life!

Mia’s Birth Story – West Penn Hospital

Pittsbrugh Birth Story on Film

 

I’m not going to say a ton about this because its self explanatory but, having the opportunity to get birth story photos done is absolutely AMAZING.  The photos I am about to share were taken by my husband and myself, but we also had a photographer (my best buddy Abby from the Vintage Button Photography) capturing these precious moments on film as well.  Her images tell the complete story, where ours that you are about to see is just a small sample because – well – we were busy having a child and all… ANYWAY.  I am loving birth story photos and fresh 48 (where we do in hospital lifestyle sessions!!) so if you’re expecting – get in touch! Here is a few images from our Mia’s Birth Story at West Penn Hospital!
