Vanessa and Erik were married, and held their reception, at Shannopin Country Club in Pittsburgh. It was an absolutely glorious day for an outdoor ceremony. Look at that blue sky!
I enjoy outdoor ceremonies because you can really get in close with a long lens to capture moments like this. When Erik first saw Vanessa, he whispered to himself, “wow.” I’m not sure if anyone else heard him, but I thought it was a very moving moment.
My good friend and fellow photographer David Burke shot with me and he caught this image while they were saying their vows.
He also caught this one of the ring exchange. I love it because you could never get this in a church.
We found this beautiful area just on the edge of the light and I was thrilled to see the sun shining through the trees. I love flare!
Same shot, different angle, you know I enjoy working a scene to get different images.
Wow, look at this couple. I love these next two images because I think it captures how relaxed they are and how perfect they are for each other. Their personalities compliment each other wonderfully.
I was just in awe over the blue sky with the white puffy clouds.
And this last one is just for Erik. I really enjoyed spending the day with the two of you, thank you for including me!
I have to also mention Jennifer, Bob and Jeremy… three of my good friends and the most talented and passionate wedding vendors that I know. When Vanessa and Erik gave me their info, I told them they had put together the dream team of vendors… which of course includes me!! LOL
