Pittsburgh Bridal Shower


Liz's mom contacted me to photograph her daughter's bridal shower at their family home in Hampton Township, PA. Since Liz now lives in Los Angeles, California they were planning on having east coast and west coast bridal showers. The east coast shower included some of her bridesmaids and closest family members. A violinist played beautiful classical music and delicious homemade food was provided. Her mom even had personalized stickers made for the Hersey kisses.

It was an honor spending the afternoon with Liz and her family; she was Miss Pennsylvania 2015 and is so incredibly kind a sweet. I thought it was funny when she told me "my mom knew we picked the right one <photographer> when she saw the photograph of you and your golden retriever and Pomeranian." Elizabeth has a Pomeranian and her parents raised goldens. We are all dog lovers!

I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a memorable day and I wish Liz and her fiancé Raj a gorgeous wedding day and a beautiful marriage full of laughter and fun. I cannot wait to see the photos from the wedding - she will be a STUNNING bride!
