Lauren & Russell | Pittsburgh Wedding


It’s always a true pleasure as a wedding photographer to watch unique love stories unfold. Every couple is so distinct and special, with their diverse experiences and personalities. Documenting Lauren and Russell’s Pittsburgh wedding was such an incredible event for me. They have this extraordinary connection and an authenticity that can only come from two souls knowing each other inside out. What I will remember most from the day was their wonderful sense of humor together! They were always making each other laugh and were so full of joy. Everyone present felt the love radiating between them and it truly was an amazing experience for all.


Meet Lauren And Russell

Lauren and Russell have one of the sweetest love stories I’ve ever heard of. They met through mutual friends 10 years ago, and it was definitely a match made in heaven. During that time, their bond only got stronger as they supported each other through thick and thin. Just when I thought their love couldn’t get any more beautiful, I heard about their proposal story where Russell got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life on his 30th birthday. Listening to their beautiful story, I knew their wedding celebration was going to be a blast and it definitely was.

Lauren And Russell’s Pittsburgh Wedding

I started the day with Lauren and Russell’s getting-ready photos. Lauren looked stunning in her wedding dress, her train and veil cascading behind her as she posed for photos with the bridesmaids, their beaming smiles matching that of the beautiful bride. Russell was equally ecstatic and looked so handsome in his tux. With the big day’s excitement ahead, the glow on their faces was truly special.

With its majestic architecture and stunning interiors, the beautiful Saint Ferdinand Church provided the perfect setting for Lauren and Russell’s wedding ceremony. It was so heartwarming seeing the couple’s close friends and family gathered to celebrate their union. What made this moment even more special was that everyone seemed moved by their devotion. Watching the lovebirds embrace each other as they said their wedding vows was an unforgettable experience.

Capturing the portraits of the newlyweds was an absolute pleasure. The beautiful natural light set the perfect mood for the scene – warm, natural, and incredibly romantic. Lauren and Russell were such a joy to work with! Their natural, gleeful energy radiated through each photograph I took of them. I couldn’t help but smile seeing how truly full of life these two were. It’s these small touches that remind me why I do what I do! Capturing precious memories for those in love is simply magical.

When ‘The Andersons’ had their first dance as newlyweds, it was something special. These two were absolutely enthralled with one another and looked so happy and excited and they only had eyes for each other. I’d asked them earlier about their favorite date night activity, to which Russell’s immediate response was – a motorcycle ride! So it didn’t come as too much of a surprise that they’d chosen their wedding cake to have the sweet message ‘Ride with me forever’. They simply stole my heart with this gorgeous gesture. Overall it was an incredible reception with everyone enjoying and dancing their hearts out.
