Laura and Luke…soon to be married!
Blessings come to me constantly, and frequently by way of my past clients referring their family and friends to me…and so it was with Luke and Laura!
You see, I photographed Laura’s Uncle John’s wedding to Emma in 2004 – one of my favorite weddings still. So, when I asked Laura who recommended her to me – because I didn’t know who she was when we first met – she told me this and said “And he doesn’t recommend too many people, so you must be really good.” I aim to please…thanks John. I can’t wait to photograph you, Emma and that beautiful son of yours! Here is an image from Emma + John’s wedding…
Laura and Luke’s names were made famous by soap-opera stars long before they even met one another, but now THEY get to be the “super couple” in real life. Famous in their own right, and even more so than that old General Hospital has-been couple, Laura is part of a prominent Pittsburgh family whose traditions are steeped deeply and passionately amongst all of us here in Pittsburgh. Hint: we are going for 7! Like I said, I’m blessed and always honored to be chosen to document such an important event for such important people! I adore these two! Laura and Luke are well grounded and soooooo SWEET! I had a great time photographing them with their dog Onyx, who was a ball of energy and ever so pretty.
Speaking of pretty…Laura and Luke made making beautiful images really easy. Their love for each other and their tender ways with one another shone through so readily and made for the perfect chemistry for me to create beautiful imagery! They also love nature, but it was Laura and Luke who enhanced the natural setting we were in, NOT the other way around!
I couldn’t decide which image I liked more here, the color or the black + white, so I thought I’d post both… That b/w one is really yummy though…
I hope you enjoyed the photos. I’ll be seeing you both really soon!
In the meanwhile, go Steelers! 😉
