Alycia + Justin | engaged

I first met Alycia and Justin a little over two years ago when I photographed Justin’s sister’s wedding – Alycia and Justin were dating at the time and I can remember them as being a fun couple out having a great time on the dance floor during the reception.

 When we talked about where we would go to do their engagement shoot, I suggested going around the Pitt campus near Heinz Chapel and the Cathedral of Learning so that we could feature both nature and architecture – there’s plenty of both within just a few blocks.

It was calling for rain…but as is typical of my photo shoots, it held off. :)  We were walking to Starbucks after we finished the shoot so that we could get a drink and talk a little more – as we neared Starbucks, it started pouring!  But, it held off during the time that was important.

They were such naturals in front of the camera and I can’t wait until their winter 2009 wedding!

Even in some of our first photos, they were relaxed, laughing and having a good time.

While most people would think that this image was posed so that I could show off Alycia’s ring, it wasn’t.  I grabbed this shot while they were talking and holding hands.  A little later in the session, Justin mentioned about getting a photo with the ring and I told them that I already had it and showed it to them.

They look so great together…I can see this image as their “newspaper photo”.

In front of the infamous Heinz Chapel doors – love all the details that you can see here:

Love the splash of color that this impatiens flower bed gave as the backdrop

Although I’ve photographed in the area a few different times, I always try to find new places or new ways of photographing the same area – this was a place that I spotted when we were walking and so we stopped to use it.

A quick walk over to Schenley Plaza to hang out for a few moments

And two more images from an often used place – I took a combination of some of the frequently photographed ways of showing off the architecture and also looked for some ways that may not be featured as often.

Already have some ideas in mind for how I’m going to do their guest book layout…it’s going to be beautiful!

Alycia and Justin – thanks for hanging out with me that morning…can’t wait for your wedding.
