I remember a few months back when I met Dana and Ryan. I was just as excited as Dana was to meet and talk about their 2012 wedding. What a small world we live in as it ends up Ryan’s mom teaches with my wife in Bethel Park. having a tie to someone you know is always a nice ice breaker with new clients. I was so happy when Dana called me to book me. I was happy that I get to shoot a wedding with people I know, which makes my day more relaxed and fun but also because when I met with this great couple; I could see just how much they loved each other. I knew we would have a great time when we photographed them and I was right. We had a blast at their engagement session.
Ryan and Dana are fun nature people who love going on walks, hiking, bike riding and just about anything that involves the outdoors. Dana wanted to go to Mingo Park for their session and I am glad we did. Such a beautiful day it was with the bright blue skies and beautiful fall foliage. When we started to take photos these two love birds had no problem smiling for the camera and interacting with each other. Right off the bat, Dana had so many great ideas on things she wanted to do. her ideas worked just perfect with my twist and special touches on them.
Mingo Park was crowded with a lot of other people taking photos and enjoying one of the last beautiful days we may get in Pittsburgh for a while. When we were done, Ryan and Dana were having so much fun that I got an idea to move to another location. I didn’t want the party to be over, so we went to South Park for more pictures. I know what you are thinking and I am sure they thought the same thing; why go to another park when we just spent over an hour having fun in a park? South park has more than just grass and tress. In fact, the spot we went to had more of a vintage, rustic urban feel to it. Just the right touch to add to the already fun session we were having.
The day could not have been any more perfect for them. I really enjoyed talking with them and laughing and having a great time getting to know each other. I think that when their wedding comes along, they will be super star models and will be 110% ready for the camera. I am really looking forward to working with them again. Thanks for such a great time guys and I hope you got to go on your bike ride after we were done.
