Unless you live in Pittsburgh and have heard of the Mattress Factory Art Museum, it’s likely you’re scratching your head at the title of this post. But don’t give up now…this was such a fun engagement session with Ashley and Matt. Since they both love the museum (and so do I–it is seriously my favorite art museum), we thought it’d be fun to take some of their engagement photos in the museum. We also sauntered around the nearby West Allegheny Commons Park and the Mexican War streets for some more traditional photos before heading for a couple of downtown Pittsburgh shots. Such a great session, and I love it when couples choose to do something they enjoy and that’s unique to them.
Matt had been chasing Ashley since 10th grade. Well, actually, they met in 10th grade and while Matt thought a trip to Kennywood together was a date, Ashley thought otherwise. So, it took some more hanging out in college together and a profession of love from Matt for them to finally get together. I love fun stories like that!
Ashley and Matt are planning their wedding at the Green Gables Restaurant in Jennerstown, PA next July, and I am so looking forward to it. Thanks y’all for the fun session!
Matt really likes Bob Dylan’s music, and he and Ashley wanted to try to recreate the photo on the cover of Dylan’s album, “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.” I think this was our best attempt! It’s kind of hard when you have to feign being cold!
