This wedding is a little extra special for me. Courtney was one of my most trusted and accomplished second shooters for years. Over time, her and Ryan became our good friends and eventually they got engaged. After moving to Pittsburgh for graduate school, Courtney and Ryan began planning their wedding. Not only did I immediately agree when they asked me to shoot their wedding, but we also offered up our home for their wedding venue.
Aside from being such a beautiful couple, by knowing them personally I can honestly say they are truly wonderful people. Everything was truly a reflection of who they are. The delicious food by Crave Catering. The beautiful flowers by Visual Lyrics. The always stunning lighting by Ilios Lighting. The tables, chairs and linens by Marquee Events. Even the pirate and ninja cake by Blue Note Bakery. Amazing hair and makeup provided by Rae Cosmetics. And of course, everything was planned perfectly to the last detail by Gina from Clink Events.
Capturing the wedding of an amazing couple is always wonderful. But when you get to capture the wedding day of someone who’s been my faithful second shooter at all my weddings for years, it’s even more of a treat! Congratulations to Courtney and Ryan. Sophia and I wish you both the very best now and always.
