Rachel & Zach’s wedding had all the elements that make for a great day of wedding photography – an energetic bridal party, close knit families coming together, beautiful venues, perfect portrait lighting and most importantly a bride & groom that are clearly meant for each other.
WEDDING PREPARATION AT THE SHERATON PITTSBURGH AIRPORT HOTEL
Rachel & Zach both started their wedding day prep at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport Hotel in Moon Township. Streaming hotel room light set the stage for a handful of beautiful detail shots as well as some vibrant getting-ready candids & portraits.
After the ceremony we ventured to Robin Hill Park for sunny haze photos of Zach & Rachel. The combination of their relaxed photogenic vibe & picturesque afternoon light lent itself to some elegant and natural bride & groom portraits…some of my favorite shots of the day.
WEDDING RECEPTION AT THE FEZ BANQUET & WEDDING CENTER
The festivities later that evening were hosted at The Fez in Aliquippa, PA. The ballroom’s distinctive blue accent lighting added a moody dramatic tone to the reception photos that evening; I just loved the style & color that I was able to capture during their bridal dance. Rachel & Zach danced the night away with huge smiles on their faces as they celebrated this new chapter of lives together, closely surrounded amongst ready-to-party friends & family.
Rachel & Zach – thank you so much for having me along on your special day to capture your memories, and for trusting me as your wedding photographer. l loved spending the day with you both and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness in the wonderful years to come!
