Hartwood Acres Engagement Pictures | Lindsay and Aaron

On a chilly day last week, I joined Lindsay and Aaron at Hartwood Acres just north of Pittsburgh for their engagement photos. Though, you wouldn’t have known it was hovering in the 40s and 50s from their photos! These two have so much fun together, and their warmth and love for each other shines through in their pictures. Ok, that’s a bit sappy-sounding–but I think it’s true!

I love the story of how Lindsay and Aaron met: they were both working for Target at the time, and they happened to be on the same flight for a business trip. Yes, you guessed it–they sat next to each other and really hit it off. Lindsay jokes, though, that there will be no red bullseyes at the wedding! (Aw come on, you don’t want to have red and khaki as your theme?)

Really, I had so much fun with them, and I am very much looking forward to their wedding next October. Let’s hope it’s a bit warmer, though!

I loved their outfits…so cute and complimentary!

These two are total hotties!

Just moments before this shot, poor Aaron got a little zap from the electric fence. Both Lindsay and I thought he was joking when he yelped in shock. Turns out, it was no joke. (sorry about that!)

Yes! This shot has become a famous one for me–all thanks to Amanda and Tim.

Lindsay told me that she and Aaron had been working out a lot to get in better shape (as if they needed to). Well, check out Aaron’s arms, Lindsay! Now that’s what I call a bicep!

Oh my goodness, I love everything about this photo!

You see, don’t be fooled by their short sleeves…it was VERY cold…hence the blanket in between breaks!

Beautiful! (I also must admit I’m a bit jealous of Lindsay’s bangs…I had bangs growing up–mine were nowhere near as cute as hers. In fact, I try to hide all of those photos…)

Now that’s what I call a FALL tree…

Pittsburgh Engagement Photos for Laura and Jon

Despite the very cold weather last week, I actually had several portrait shoots.  I met with Laura and Jon on the Northside of Pittsburgh in the Mexican War Streets.  From there we meandered over to West View Park, and later we drove down to the river front by Heinz Field.  Occasionally we caught glimpses of the sun, but for the most part it was pretty chilly.

Laura and Jon are planning a destination wedding in Puerto Rico next year…and unfortunately it’s on a day I already have booked.  Still, they wanted to get engagement photos done here in Pittsburgh, and so I’m glad we got to meet up and get some photos.  I am sure their wedding will be MUCH warmer! (Note: I’m still working on getting my new watermark to work…so it’s a bit all over the place!)

Pittsburgh Engagement Photo

I love the trees and the gate in this shot.

A little fun here…

Love this.

Pittsburgh has such a nice downtown…

Definitely a fave… (but it does look cold!)

Laura Tuten - Mary, I love them! I can’t wait to see the rest! Thank you so much!


A Pittsburgh Wedding Photography Blog

I am so excited to unveil my new blog today.  The Old Blog served its purpose,  but I couldn’t stand how slow it would load. Plus, trying to edit the blogger interface to match my new look just seemed like too much of a headache for me.

So, I hope all my old blog readers have found their way here, and I can’t wait to continue blogging my recent photography shoots. I’ve got some fun portrait sessions to show you!

Also, stay tuned for some more tweaks to the blog in the coming weeks!

EDIT: I realized I had sung the praises of my graphic designer, David Crawford; on my old blog, but I had failed to mention him here.  Needless to say, I am more than pleased with the work he did, and I think my new logo represents my photography style perfectly: simple, elegant, and beautiful.  Thanks David for your dedication to creating perfection!

Laura - Mary -I LOVE the new logo and the new blog. AWESOME job!

marfa - Ooo, pretty!

Milla - OH MY GOODNESS I am so excited for you Mary! This looks so nice – I totally love the colors and logo, etc. What a wonderful job (after lots of hard work, I’m sure!!) Looks great!

Jessica - I love the new look! I also love your work, you are a fabulous photographer.

Kara - Great new look! Smooth and elegant, and the colors match my bedroom’s colors, so I think they’re great!

Helen Shaver - My daughter! I’m so proud of her! Your new look is lovely!

Lisa Piellusch - Congrats on your new look 🙂 Looking forward to continuing to follow you over here!
