John & Melissa Hanson | Renaissance Hotel Reception

I had a lovely day with John and Melissa and their bridal party. I began with the girls at the salon. I got some really cool candid shots. Love those candid moments. After the ceremony we travelled to the West End Overlook. It was awesome weather out so the pictures came out great!

The reception was held at the Renaissance Hotel, Downtown. There was a Steeler Game going on, but we didn’t let that stop us from getting some neat bridge pictures. I kinda liked having the crowd in some of the images.

The rest of the day was great. Thanks again to John and Melissa for selecting Amber Marie Photography.



This is one of my favorites.  The first dance is such an intimate and powerful moment.  I love catching it so candidly.  It’s like no one else is there.
I never interrupt the brides to get these mirror shots.  It’s about being in the right place at the right time.
I always love catching the bride and groom walking away from the camera.  The images are so natural.
