Phipps Conservatory Wedding | Jessica & Nik

In my effort to blog some of my favorite weddings over the past year, here's Nik and Jess's Phipp's Conservatory wedding in Pittsburgh, PA!  My wife's family is from Pittsburgh (and I'm an adopted Steelers fan) so I love getting down here every chance I get.  Enjoy this set, the Phipps Conservatory is a cool venue, plus Jess and Nik are such a great couple.  How cool are their constellation table settings?  Nik works for NASA, I think they slid that interest in pretty well! pittsburgh wedding

Rebecca & Andrew | Overbrook Country Club wedding

Now begins the time of year when I catch up on long overdue blog posts!  Let us commence! 2015 was a crazy busy year and I want to go back to feature all of the weddings that I never got a chance to blog about.  First up we have Rebecca and Andrew who got married at the Overbrook Golf Club just outside of Philadelphia, PA.  It was a gorgeous spring day, pink blossoms blooming, beautiful light everywhere...what's not to love??  A big thanks goes out to my second shooter Yanshu Liu who was a huge help that day and took some of these getting ready photos of Andrew.  Thanks Yanshu!

Fiddle Lake Farms Wedding

Another in the series of weddings I should have blogged last year.  Better late than never right?  This Fiddle Lake Farms wedding was a real stunner!  I'm booked to go back there soon and I can't wait.  These folks are doing the whole barn wedding thing right! (Go check them out here at their website, great people and great venue.)  Susan and Nikhil did such an amazing job of putting together this day.  From the beautiful ceremony filled with Chinese and Indian traditions, to the epic party complete with traditional dancing and a 'Toast-off," a great time was had by all!  Congrats again, guys!  Thanks for having me there for it!

Arlyss & Yusha | Swarthmore College Engagement

Arlyss and Yusha are just about as laid back and nice as you can get.  When we met over coffee in Brooklyn a few months back I knew that we'd all work well together.  We started talking about where they might like to have their engagement shoot and I was glad they followed my advice and picked someplace that meant something to the two of them.  They met  here at Swarthmore College as undergrads and have tons of memories there.  This was a fun shoot, plus we got a little day trip to Philly out of it as well!  Thanks Arlyss and Yusha, looking forward to the wedding next year!

Helen & Dan | Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Wedding

I've known Helen here for awhile; she's been my wife's best friend since they were kids, she was the Maid of Honor at our wedding and Morgan was the same for hers here.  I was honored that when Helen and Dan got engaged they came straight to me when looking for their photographer.  Plus, I love every chance I get to hang in the 'Burgh!  It's usually always an epic time.  And trust me friends, this time was no different! All the best, Helen and Dan!  It was an amazing day!
