I met Emily & AJ back in 2014 and had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session, which you can view HERE. Fast forward to the beginning of 2015, when they contacted me and booked me as their wedding photographer. Finally now at the beginning of 2016, I was able to capture their wedding day.
The ceremony was beyond touching and the amount of people with water dripping from their eyes astonished me. Not only did they display an incredible love for each other, but they had a room full of people who loved them as well. The whole day was full of real emotion and I decided to create a post just about that – the emotion that I saw between these two.
First, they laughed.
… and then they cried.
They even shared a handkerchief.
Then laughed again. This was a constant pattern throughout the ceremony.
They shared their first kiss…
… then a very touching, long embrace.
On our way out of Phipps, we were able to capture some beautiful images.
Then we traveled around Pittsburgh to a few landmarks for some beautiful portraits.
Emily was more than thrilled when the wind started blowing her veil.
I was honored to be able to capture the love these two share…
… and a few shots that portray their loving, but fun relationship.
… and then they danced.
Congratulations Emily and AJ!!! … and thank you!
It was the coldest day of the year. Well, it was the first day of the year, but anyways it was cold! They put on a brave face, and I put on a pair of fingerless gloves and we headed outside to capture some of their last moments as a family of two!
At least the sun was out and shining. Here is a small look into their cold, outdoor maternity session >>
I think that will be one adorable baby girl. Not much longer, she will be making her grand entrance very soon…
I have enjoyed capturing a ton of exciting moments for Christen and Nick over the past year and their wedding is no exception. It was an honor to spend the day with them and capture some special moments. Here is a sneak peek of the first part of their special wedding day.
These two are so sweet together, their boys are just precious, and Christen looked absolutely stunning! Check back soon to see the second part of their day.
