Pittsburgh Engagement Photography - will you marry me?

The question is asked, "Will you marry me?"  Tears flow and the guy has a tough time speaking.  Maybe a few hours or days before, he met with his future bride's dad.  Do her parents like me, will they accept my request to marry their daughter?  He was scared, what if I am turned down, what if she laughs, what if she says yes?  So many questions and thoughts flow through the young man's mind as he walks with his future bride to a quiet place to 'pop' the question. 

Then they are at the perfect place, a place where he thought about many times before.  The young man gets down on one knee and - "will you marry me?"

She shouts with passion and love in her voice, "yes, I will marry you!"  And a new entry in the notebook of love and romance is written.  Reminding me of the great movie, "The Notebook". 

Images taken during an engagement shoot are one way to recapture that special day when the groom to be, asked the love of his life, "will you marry me".  Andrew and Vanessa were engaged on the walkway to the Gateway Clipper in Pittsburgh, Pa.  Yesterday's post provided a few more details of the engagement session as we walked through the streets of Station Square and rode the incline to Mount Washington.

Nessa & Drew Wedding Engagement Pittsburgh, PA

Nessa and Drew were engaged near the Gateway Clipper in Pittsburgh, PA.  The images in this show are a reenactment of the original day that Drew proposed to Nessa. On the original day, Nessa was surprised but obviously accepted his proposal.

During this reenactment of their original engagement date, we walked along Station Square in the South Side of Pittsburgh, PA photographing along the way to document their beautiful day.  The weather was perfect during the evening and into the night.  After we grabbed a few fun shots behind the Grand Concourse, we moved our way along the river to a remnant of the industrial days in Pittsburgh.  We stopped at a flower stand along the walkway in Station Square and headed to the incline leading to Mt. Washington.  Mt. Washington presents an amazing view of the beautiful city of Pittsburgh and provides thousands of photography related opportunities.  While walking through the streets of Mt. Washington, we found a small but inviting set of shops which included an ice cream shop.  Nearby was an colorful mural of houses and trees on the wall of an old building and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to play and grab some fun shots.  Enjoy the slideshow to some romantic music.  Later in the week I will post a few still images of the engagement shoot which covered a beautiful section of Pittsburgh, PA.
