Places to take Wedding Pictures in Pittsburgh

I would have to say that one of the most popular questions that I get from my brides before the wedding day is, “where should we take pictures?”  There are several fantastic locations around Pittsburgh to take beautiful pictures on your wedding day.  One huge piece of advice that I can give is to not make your mind up that you don’t want to shoot somewhere because it’s a popular location.  Let’s take the “Columns” in Oakland, for instance.  I have had some clients who say to me that they do not want to shoot there because “everyone shoot’s there.”  While I understand, you have to keep in mind that the columns are a GREAT location to shoot.  I explain to all of my clients that no matter how many times I shoot at a location, or how many times I’ve seen other photographers images from a location, I always strive to do something different.  It’s a challenge for me to expand my ideas and creativity.  Some sites in Pittsburgh are popular for a reason… they are great backdrops.  You should not let the commonness deter you =)
