Jay Verno Studios Wedding

Claudia and Trevor

Claudia and Trevor celebrated their elegant Jay Verno Studios wedding on a beautiful and sunny day in May.  The day began with Claudia and her bridesmaids getting ready at Jay Verno Studios and then we all headed to Trevor’s childhood church, St. Philip Church in Crafton, Pennsylvania for their wedding Mass.  We stopped for some portraits at Jay Verno Studios after the wedding ceremony, and then played around a bit on the South Side with some street photos and some shots with a beautiful mural.  Then we stopped at the Hot Metal Bridge, an iconic Pittsburgh bridge with beautiful architecture for bridal portraits.  You can see for yourself the joy and love they were surrounded with on their wedding day.

Claudia and Trevor, it was a true pleasure and blessing to capture the story of your wedding day.  God bless you with a beautiful marriage and a lifetime of happiness! – Marnie

Once in awhile a couple comes along that is so natural in front of the camera.  The sweetest and most stylish couple.  That couple is Claudia and Trevor.  Claudia, Trevor and I first met at the Panera Bread out here in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.  Bear in mind, as is always the case when I’m meeting couples for the first time, we were unsure if we were going to recognize each other when we met.  Claudia walked in the door and noticed me right away and said “I knew it was you because you look artistic”.  Claudia probably didn’t know this, but that made my day!  We were all excited to work together, first on their engagement session, and soon for their wedding.  Their Phipps Conservatory engagement photos turned out amazing!  Then we headed over to Schenley Park’s Flagstaff Hill where they had spent a lot of time together during their courtship.  Wait until you see those Pittsburgh city views.

I can’t wait for the wedding you two.  Let’s make some more magic!   XOXO Marniecouple-hugging-in-schenley-parkcouple-walking-in-schenley-parkcouple-posing-in-schenley-parkengagment-photo-of-couple-in-schenley-parkphipps-conservatory-engagement-photos-in-gardencouple-sitting-on-stairs-outside-at-phipps-conservatorycouple-hugging-at-phipps-conservatorycouple-posing-at-phipps-conservatoryman-caressing-womans-cheek-phipps-conservatorycouple-walking-by-phipps-conservatorywoman-holding-mans-arm-by-phipps-conservatorycouple-sitting-on-hillside-in-schenley-parkcouple-holding-hands-and-walking-in-schenley-parkcouple-touching-forheads-laying-on-ground-schenley-parkman-holding-woman-overlooking-pittsburgh-skylineman-carrying-woman-schenley-parkman-and-woman-cuddling-schenley-park

Tyler and Patricia celebrated their June wedding at the gorgeous Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  It was a beautiful, multi-cultural event with family and friends from near and far present to celebrate with them.  I was so touched by the gratitude and kindness of both families that day.  They sure made me feel appreciated and for that I am so thankful.  Check out their gorgeous Omni William Penn wedding photos!

Thank you so much to my dear friend, Heather Martin, for her awesome skills as my second shooter!
