Pittsburgh Wedding Photography | The Priory | Katie and Brian

Here are a few more of my favorites from Katie and Brian's beautiful wedding on January 23rd. I still can't believe we had sunny skies and 52 degrees! See you guys soon!

Checking the make-up

Deep breath before walking down the aisle

Dad had a few words to say to Brian before he let go

Katie had tear filled eyes as she said her vows

I kept waiting for the Priest to mimic the statue of Jesus above him. He did... once.

I so like bubbles over rice!

The girls wanted to do their version of America's Next Top Model

Of course the guys were not to be outdone...

First dance

A quiet moment before dinner

The father / daughter dance was filled with emotion

And so was the mother / son dance

I knew it was trouble when this fellow stepped in front for the garter toss

He got it! And he almost got me, too!

Pittsburgh Wedding Photography | The Priory | Katie and Brian

Yesterday's wedding with Katie and Brian was absolutely SICK! We rocked it out by shooting more than 2,500 unique images. It's gonna be a long, hard editing session to bring this one to a reasonable number!

Can you believe it, 52 degree weather in January in Pittsburgh! That was awesome!!!! It doesn't get any better than that, period! The sky was one giant softbox of light. SWEET.

I would be horribly amiss if I didn't mention their insanely beautiful reception site, The Grand Hall at The Priory. Their winter wonderland theme was breathtaking and Walter and his staff was simply THE BEST!

Can't wait to show a great sneak peek but for now one will have to do.

Katie and Brian, enjoy your time in Mexico and I'll see you when you get back. Thank you for allowing Toni and me to be a part of your day. Love you guys!!

Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer | New Year's Eve Wedding | Julie and Jonathan

New Year's Eve was extra special this year as we had the honor of photographing Julie and Jonathan's wedding. What a perfect was to enter into a new year and decade!

The wedding ceremony was held at Assumption Catholic Church in Bellevue and the reception at Bella Sera in Canonsburg. Mark Zini, DJZini, provided entertainment for the evening.

Congratulations again Julie and Jonathan! Toni and I look forward to seeing you when you come back from your honeymoon. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of some of our favorites from the day...

Julie was almost bursting with joy as she and her dad walked down the aisle.
