Jodie and Ben’s wedding at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh was one of the most amazing weddings I have ever been a part of!  At the museum, we were able to utilize so many interesting and unique settings for portraits including the grand staircase, and the room of architecture and the room of sculptures. Even though there was some rain throughout the afternoon, we were able to capture so many awesome memories for this amazing couple that even included some fun umbrellas! They just rolled with it and nothing could stop them from having the best day possible.

Jodie and Ben are one of the sweetest and most loving couples I have had the pleasure of working with. Jodie has this infectious smile and the two of them together simply radiate joy. Everyone in the family was so great to work with, you can tell that they just adore these two and were simply enjoying the celebration of them joining their lives together.

One of my absolute favorite things about this wedding was the incredibly emotional first look that Jodie had with her dad. The emotion is so evident and I am so honored that I was able to capture such sweet moments. Absolutely one of my favorite aspects of my job…to forever freeze these moments for my sweet clients.

The ceremony at St. Rosalia’s Catholic Church was simply stunning and the reception afterward was a total blast. They had a cookie table and a photo booth and an absolutely KILLER band playing so that all their friends could dance the night away.

Jodie and Ben…thank you for…..
