Favorite Family Moment: Kate dancing with her younger brother was a moment of pure joy. They lost their father years ago, and their friendship has grown to a true, inseparable bond over the years. As they danced on, I could see their mom smiling from the sidelines, as I’m sure she has their entire lives. I love it when siblings, especially brothers and sisters, are such good friends and hold each other close in both sad times and on the best days of their lives.


Vibrant Style: Who doesn’t love a wedding with fireworks!! The date selection is thanks, in part, to Kate’s mom who just knew that a fireworks night at the Renaissance Hotel would make for the perfect photo opportunity. Thanks to some decent weather, we were able to get outside to quite the show – Jeff looking dapper in his bowtie, Kate looking slim and stunning in her Monique Lhilliuer fitted wedding dress – and sparkling fireworks over Pittsburgh’s Roberto Clemente Bridge. You couldn’t ask for a more picture-perfect Pittsburgh wedding moment.


Our Favorite Photo: I have so many favorites from their wedding, but the one that’s received the most buzz is their end-of-the-night picture looking out at the fireworks. Here’s the behind-the-scenes: I took this photo as I was walking through a crosswalk, not sure if the traffic light was green or red because my eye was up to a camera viewfinder (I have a bad habit of doing this…) and I was shooting at f/1.8. Anyone who knows photography knows that this aperture mixed with moving mixed with night photography is well, who knows if your pictures will be in focus. By the power above they were, and a perfect moment was captured!
