Pittsburgh Wedding Photography - Images from Mt Washington

All of the guys in Andrew's wedding were long time friends and softball buddies.  Therefore, the gift from the groom (Andrew) to the guys was a softball bat with their names engraved in it.  A very nice gift and touch.  Something they can keep for years and look back on with a smile.  We were on one of the observatory decks of Mt. Washington, overlooking the beautiful city of Pittsburgh.  It was mid day and the sun was hot (100 degrees +-).  However, the groomsmen, best men, and groom, were all very cooperative and we were able to create this fun shot with a beautiful blue sky in the background.

Next up were the ladies.  We wanted to add to their beauty with a landscape shot of Pittsburgh as a backdrop.  The sunglasses helped to cut down on the strong sun glare (and no doubt glare from my head).

The third image is an entire group shot of the ladies and guys.  Again, we utilized sunglasses to reduce the strong glare from the sun and create a fun look for the group shot with the city of Pittsburgh as a backdrop.

The wedding was held in Munhall, PA (images from the beautiful church will be posted in future posts) and we stopped on Mt. Washington for wedding pictures before heading to the Double Tree hotel in Moon Twp. PA.

Lindsey and Andrew - Wedding Prep at Double Tree Hotel

Lindsey and Andrew were married on July 3, 2010.

I had a tremendous time photographing the time prior to the wedding ceremony of Lindsey and Andrew.  Everyone laughing and getting ready at the Double Tree Hotel in Moon Township.  The guys were on the same floor but the opposite end of the hotel compared to the ladies.  This made photographing them less like a sporting event.  :-D

The ceremony was held at St. Therese Catholic Church in Munhall, PA.  We made the trip around the city of Pittsburgh without any delays.  Although the city was preparing for the holiday weekend with boats in the water and temperatures rising near 100 degrees, the ladies were very comfortable in their limo bus.

This short multimedia show is the first of others made to cover the wedding day of Lindsey and Andrew.  All the ladies looked beautiful in their gowns and the guys wore some of the fanciest shoes ever.  Look for them in the shows and check out Andrew's shoes as he rested and waited.
