I am returning from my maternity leave with this lovely engagement session that showcases the softer, greener side of Pittsburgh. Captured by Studio 29 Photography, Marissa and Doug spent a gorgeous July day wandering a lush nature conservancy. I especially love the image above; such joy!
I love the fun, quirky nature of this session! Captured by Carolyn Scott Photography, Laurie and Neil wandered Mellon Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a warm summer day for a lovely “month after” shoot. The photographers, good friends of the couple, were unable to attend Laurie and Neil’s wedding, so they arranged this gorgeous session for the next time they were in Pittsburgh to celebrate. Laurie is from Pittsburgh and Neil is from New Zealand, but the couple met in England and then lived in Scotland for a while before settling back in Pittsburgh.
Today’s wedding combines a classic black and ivory color palette with pops of bright yellow, adding a modern twist. Captured by Alison Mish Photography, Laura and Jack were married on a beautiful day this April in a University chapel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The couple met while attending medical school at Temple University in Philadelphia. They chose to add yellow to the black and ivory color scheme as a nod to their mutual love of the Pittsburgh Penguins ice hockey team. Be sure to read the story of how Laura and Jack met and their inspiration for their wedding day below!
A few words from the bride:
Jack and I met when we first began medical school at Temple in August 2008. We were merely friends until one fateful day in May 2009 when we went for a run together. After those first miles together, I knew I was in trouble…He proposed in September 2012 in Wissahickon Park in Philadelphia. We took our dogs (Rocky & Bullwrinkle) for a walk in the park, something which we did fairly frequently. We stopped in a secluded spot off the trail to check out the creek and when I turned around he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand. It was perfect!
I wanted to something very classy (but not super formal) for the wedding, which is why we went for the black and ivory color scheme. Since the wedding was in Pittsburgh (and it was actually mutual love of the Pittsburgh Penguins which really sealed us together as a couple) we chose yellow as an accent color.
