Pittsburgh Engagement Photographer : Ginger + Russ (and little B)

October 23, 2012

We met at Riverside park in Oakmont and were greeted by a beautiful hawk. He hung out, repeatedly swooping over our heads, for a few minutes before picking up a squirrel directly behind Russ and Ginger and flying off. They watched with fascination. “Well, that’s the circle of life,” Russ said while Ginger noted that they needed to add a hawk (and possibly a squirrel) to their wedding totem.

Carrying on, we took advantage of the beautiful light and old rundown industrial buildings in the area before meeting with little B. This little guy has one of the most amazing smiles I have ever laid eyes on. (Just wait until you scroll down!) Working with Ginger and Russ was special enough but photographing the three of them was nothing short of beautiful. Together, they seem to become a complete circle, radiating love.

Russ and Ginger are in the midst of planning their incredibly intimate wedding and I am so looking forward to working with them on their special day next year.
