I vow to be there on your wedding day come rain or shine, for 2 guests or 200, for the smiles, the tears, and everything in between. I vow to be your confidant and friend — someone who earns your trust, who respects your vulnerability, and who honors your love story by documenting it authentically.

I know I say this all the time…
…but this was one of my favorite weddings from 2017.
You might remember Kendy and Joe from one of my favorite engagement sessions (view those images here) at Mellon Park and a parking garage rooftop in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. Kendy and I hit it off immediately as we quoted movies, professed our love for dogs, and our self-deprecating humor. So it was no surprise that her wedding rolled the same way.
Kendy is the second (or third? I lost track) bride that I photographed within the same circle of friends. I LOVE when that happens! I am so grateful for referrals and it’s so gratifying to see my former and future brides at weddings. It’s like hitting the wedding photographer jackpot because good people attract more good people. And these are some really good people.
Kendy, if we went to a Halloween party dressed as Batman and Robin, I’d go as Robin. That’s how much you mean to me.
Special shoutout to my second shooter/work bestie Pamela Marie who photographed this wedding while 8 months pregnant. For the record: I gave her the option to decline working this wedding (I’m not that mean) but she wanted to work it. She even climbed a tree AND the back of a golf cart. Bravo Pamela! Her images are scattered in the post below.
