Amanda and Gregg were married on February 24th, with a ceremony and reception at the Fairmont Hotel in Pittsburgh.
I’m particularly proud of the coverage of this wedding not just because we kept busy and managed to fit all of the coverage into just 7 hours but because I did the wedding photography by myself at 34 weeks pregnant. It was a physical challenge, but I’m proud of the results. (Of course, it helped that the weather held out and we were able to get outside like we wanted to do; the pieces really fell into place.)
A Winter Wedding at the Fairmont Hotel
I started out photographing Amanda as she got ready and snagged an amazing photo of her with her veil blowing by the hotel room window. She looked so stunning and radiant and warm—and that anticipation and excitement kept going right into the first look photos, too.
During the ceremony itself, everyone was touched by how Amanda and Gregg incorporated Gregg’s son, Adrian, into the day. Amanda said a set of vows to Adrian, and it really seems like they already have a wonderful relationship together. In fact, one of my favorite pictures is one of Adrian in his dad’s arms at the ceremony. He’s obviously excited about the new family—and he should be! They’re going to be beautiful together.
The day was filled with touching moments like that, especially when Gregg sang to his new wife and his son. He had nothing but his guitar and the packed but hushed reception room. Everyone was all ears and tears listening to him bare his soul in song.
Amanda & Gregg, thank you for letting me be part of your wedding. I know you two will make each other happy and that you will have a Christ-centered family life. I hope you and Adrian have a great time in Disneyland, too!
