caty & nina | calvary episcopal church ceremony & university club reception | same sex wedding in pittsburgh, pa | lgbtq+ wedding photographer pittsburgh

Have you ever seen a couple that’s just too stinkin’ beautiful for their own good? These two ladies are just as stunning inside as they are on the outside – they’re two of the kindest people I’ve ever encountered, and it’s easy to see that comes from the wonderful families who brought them up – this day was absolute perfection!

We started with prep coverage at Caty’s childhood home, which had the most beautiful light!

Nina finished getting ready at the church prior to the ceremony, and we met up with her there to get a few photos before things got started!Emotional dad moments are my absolute favorite (and they always, always make me cry). These guys and their girls – I can’t even deal! And just LOOK at these precious flower girls! We got some quick portraits outside of the church, because rain was in the forecast, and I’m glad we did because I just love this spot!We jumped in the couple’s limo bus to head to our portrait location and then onward to the reception venue.We didn’t get hit with a ton of rain – just a few drops – but THE WIND! It was crazy and multiple umbrellas flipped inside out, making for a few memorable and chaotic moments 😉The University Club looked incredible with Caty & Nina’s beautiful centerpieces – I love this venue and the wonderful staff there!I’ve never seen a more gorgeous first dance!Nina caught her brother shedding some tears during the speeches – I love these images!Since our outdoor portrait time was cut a bit short, we did some extra photos during the reception. We used the gorgeous spiral staircase, and even ventured onto the balcony for some photos with and without the rain that night. I love having those extra bits of time for couples’ portraits!

Congratulations, Mrs. & Mrs!
