Hot Metal Bridge Pictures | Mellon Green Wedding Pictures | Nick & Jessica

When I shot Nick and Jessica for their engagement session a couple of months ago, I knew that their wedding day would be phenomenal.  And, I was right!

Favorite pic always goes first!  LOVE THIS ONE!

Jessica’s dress was absolutely gorgeous!  It had a very flowing, organic feel to it.

I am getting teary all over again seeing this image.  There is more to photographing a wedding than formal portraits.  I strive to capture moments like this at every wedding.

I love, love, love the image on the left.  The colors and light at the altar were gorgeous.

Again, half the time my favorite images are after the formal/ posed pictures =)  This is heading back down from the Hot Metal Bridge.

Nick absolutely adores Jess.

The best man and maid of honor gave tremendous speeches.


Pittsburgh North Shore Wedding Pictures | Robin & Dan

I recently photographed the wedding of Robin and Dan.  It was a beautiful day.

My favorite image always comes first =)  I appreciate being able to capture these moments.

Great Wedding Party!!! =)


I am very, very pleased that I am seeing much more cake-smashing lately.  It seems like it was on a hiatus for the past few years.

Thanks again to Robin and Dan for choosing Amber Marie Photography!

Pittsburgh North Shore Engagement Session | Dan & Carrie

I had an awesome afternoon with Dan & Carrie.  They are quite amazing in that they do Triathlons.  Dan was actually pointing out where they jump into the river, swim down river, jump out and hop on a bike.  I have heard of this before, but to actually hang out with people who did this was very impressive.  I also got to hear of how they got engaged at that very location this past December.

This is one of my favorite shots from the day.  Dan actually pointed out this location as we were walking.  Good eye!

I thought this was such a cute shot with the bikes.  I actually  picked one up and, surprisingly, they are very, very light.

Such a sweet moment.  I really enjoy capturing these sort of moments during the engagement shoots.  I feel like it relays a much more natural feel.

The innocence and candidness of this image is mesmerizing.  This is what I aim for!
