Pittsburgh Engagement Photography | Matthew Blassey
Lindsey & Joe were psyched to make the trek back to into Pittsburgh to have their engagement pictures taken. Both Joe & Lindsey are University of Pittsburgh Alums, which is where they started dating, and now live in Washington, DC. In addition, this shoot also gave the two of them an added perk of coming back into the Burgh for the weekend to reconnect with friends.
Lindsey & Joe were both interested in a gritty style of photography for their session, set amongst a handful of iconic urban spots in Pittsburgh which we both had a hand in picking out. I started the session off by snapping a few casual shots of the two of them at Primanti’s Bros. in the Strip District (a must have shot of theirs which ended up being a really fun shot.) We then took a walk outside around a few nearby neighboring streets, capturing some gritty style shots against warehouse walls, alleys and loading docks. Afterwards, we made a hop skip and a jump across the Allegheny river to Allegheny Landing Park for a scenic backdrop, displaying the heart of downtown. It ended up being the perfect spot to finish off the 2nd half of the session.
Lindsey & Joe were a blast to walk, talk & shoot with, and I’m genuinely looking forward to their big day next August!
