Amy and Patrick | Fairmont Hotel & Sacred Heart Wedding

In 1998, when I first decided to photograph weddings, I apprenticed with an established wedding photographer for almost 2 years.  When I moved to Pittsburgh in 2000 and started photographing events on my own, I was my own boss.  As a general rule I worked by myself - I did know any photographers in the area and did not use assistants or second shooters.  Nor did I assist/second shoot for other photographers. Last year I met an amazing group of Pittsburgh photographers and became good friends with several of them.  On average I photograph 25-30 events a year as a primary photographer; this year I also had an opportunity to work with other photographers and learn from them.

I photographed Patrick's and Amy's wedding as a second shooter for my good friend Katia Forero of Katia Forero Photography.  It was an amazing wedding - a gorgeous couple, a fun bridal party and a beautiful venue.  However, I don't know what I enjoyed more - the wedding itself or working with Katia.

Below are some of the images I took at this incredible wedding...
