Christy Matt - Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

 Pittsburgh Wedding Photography

Christy and Matt were married at Victory Family Church in Cranberry Twp, PA.  which is located north of Pittsburgh.  The first image was taken outside the wedding reception in front of One Oxford Centre.  I attempt to create a unique artistic image for each bride and groom and when we walked around the front of the building the interesting light in front on the display immediately caught my attention.  I wanted to use the light to create an interesting shadow with a wild color.  Notice in the middle of the image is a heart.  I wish I could say I planned it but I didn't.  :-D

The second image was taken at the church prior to the ceremony.  For months, I studied this area of the church and thought about the many ways to pose a bride to capture her beauty with the magnificent light that comes through the windows.  The window frame acted as a natural frame and the shiny floor accented the photo.  

The lighting on the second photo is a combination of back lighting from the window and front lighting via an SB800.
