Oakland Engagement Session | Spring Pictures | Jenn & Ricky

It was another blue skied, sunny morning in Pittsburgh for Jenn and Ricky’s E-session.  The funny thing about this season so far is- THE SUN!!!  I think all of us photographers can attest to the fact that we usually don’t have to worry about that thing called the sun.  Pittsburgh is known for it’s gray and overcast skies- which we love.  So, it has definitely been a new challenge thus far dealing with our new friend 😉  But, I always welcome a challenge… challenge brings growth… and I have definitely been learning how to work with our new environment.

So, I went on ETSY and tried NOT to go overboard buying some cute props for the engagement sessions.  I like this one.

We definitely wanted to get a shot with the Cathedral.  I always like this view.  I actually don’t mind the sun shining right on them.

The “LOVE” banner.  It was a little windy- so catching that thing settled was tough. =)

These doors are excellent for pictures.  Fortunately, I was able to get a few shots before people started walking in and out.

I loved Jenn’s tattoo.  I had to get a picture.  Sometimes, I feel that when you cut out parts of the body and feature other parts- there’s so much more of a story being told =)  Love this pic.

Love love love this.  I knew this was going to be black and white when I was taking it.  I love how timeless this is!  Or how it could be anywhere.

Ricky and Jenn did a super good job!  I am excited for their wedding later this season!

J.Verno Studios | West End Overlook Wedding Pictures | Jamil and Alycia

I was finally getting the chance to shoot an event at J.Verno Studios.  I have been hearing of this location for years- and the time had come 😉  When I first arrived I was blown away by the details of the place- it is awesome!  Every spot has a unique ambiance and design to it.  Very fun.

The room where Alycia was getting ready was very dark and dramatic.  I used that to my advantage and got some pretty cool shots.  Outside of the studio is where I photographed Jamil and the groomsmen.

The ceremony itself wasn’t until the evening- so myself and the wedding party travelled around the city to get some onsite images.

The entire day was great and I captured a lot of great stuff Alycia and Jamil.  Thanks again for selecting Amber Marie Photography.
