Point State Park Engagement: Rachel and John


Rachel and John went to the same high school together (which just so happens to be the same high school that I went to). They fell in love when she was a Sophomore and he was a Senior. Traveling is one of their favorite things to do together; they even had the opportunity to study abroad in GERMANY! (SO lucky!!!) John loves to cook and they both are avid Harry Potter fans. After 6 years of dating, John proposed at the beautiful Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. Rachel was extremely surprised, and of course said YES!

We met at Point State Park to begin the engagement shoot. This location in Pittsburgh provides backdrops of greenery, fountains, bridges, and rivers. The weather was absolutely perfect; sunny but not too hot for a summer evening in July. We walked around Point State park during their photo session then made our way to the PPG fountains in the heart of Pittsburgh. Those fountains are MAGICAL!! They added the extra *sparkle* that I was looking for during their shoot.

One thing I love about my job is showing people how beautiful they are. A lot of clients tell me that "they don't take good pictures." My response is always, "that is because you haven't had the right person take your photograph." Every single person is beautiful and unique and I love proving that to them through photography.
