Jon and Ashley's Italian destination wedding on the Amalfi coast; Sorrento, Italy https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/9/jon-and-ashleys-italian-destination-wedding-on-the-amalfi-coast-sorrento-italy  

Jonathan & Ashley 

Sorrento, Italy

9.5.22

 

When Ashley and Jon asked me to photograph their wedding on the Amalfi coast, I was truly honored and immediately on board. I couldn't wait to see the beauty that this coast of Italy had to offer for wedding photography. As a photographer who has done weddings since 2005, (soon approaching the end of TWO decades of wedding shooting) I've seen it all... winter weddings in white wonderlands, summer weddings on a pristine beach, fall weddings in the Pennsylvania mountains that make you think you've walked into a rainbow... but I was enamored at the thought of a bride standing on the cliff of the Amalfi coast. That image was in my mind for a full year leading up to this wedding. I have photographed destination weddings in the past, locations such as Florida, Alaska, South Carolina, Montreal, and more.. but I knew the bright blue water and sunny skies of southern Italy were going to soon be some of my best work yet.

Jon and Ashley's day was absolutely perfect by all standards. The location was surreal on a villa overlooking the water, with a view of Mt Vesuvius behind them as they said their vows. The weather was a perfect 80 degree day with sunny skies. There couldn't have been a more perfect day even if you ordered it off a menu from the Gods. Speaking of menu... after their ceremony and portraits on a cliff, their four course meal was just divine, followed by a firework display cake cutting and dancing the night away!

Congrats to Ashley and Jon on a beautiful beginning to what is going to be a beautiful marriage... All my best to you! Thank you for making me a part of journey with you!

While I was in Sorrento, I explored the Amalfi coast and Capri for a few days prior to the wedding, here are a few of my images of this beautiful part of our world! I highly suggest this location for your next vacation, it was more affordable than I expected and quite easy to get there - and barely any language barrier! Please enjoy some of my landscapes and street photography...

FALL PHOTOGRAPHY Q&A ...

 

DO YOU HAVE A FALL COUCH OR PUMPKIN/PROP SET THIS YEAR?

This year I've decided to go back to basics for fall photography. "Fall sets" and couches in the woods have all been done before, and to be honest I found that the images were beautiful but were lacking personality and connection in my subjects because there are only so many poses to be done on a couch setup with props or pumpkins, before they all seem to be redundant. Without props I am able to concentrate more on connecting my subjects together via beautiful poses and moments with wonderful PA fall foliage color and sunlight as my "prop"! This makes the photos truly timeless. It helps personalities and love really shine through the photo.

I enjoy taking a walk through the woods and fields with my clients to find pockets of colorful foliage and light beaming through. Each session then has its own look and uniqueness as well. It is now much less about the vintage couch or props and pumpkins in the woods and more about the connection of you and your relationships with your spouse/children, as well as beautiful portraits of the kids individually of course! I have found this to be more preferable to not only myself but my clients as well.

 

ARE YOU DOING MINI SESSIONS?

I also do not not have mini sessions anymore, because I truly believe it takes about full hour to get all of the family combinations captured and children's personalities to truly shine through. As well as get to all of the great locations (both woods and fields) so that you have amazing images in all of those spots, with combinations of both posed and candid photos. Although if you have children who are a bit older or feel that a half hour is enough for you, I do have a shorter session option on sale (see below).

 

WHAT TIME SLOTS DO YOU HAVE OPEN?

I have various dates between Oct 21 and Nov 4. The color always peaks in Westmoreland County closer to Halloween, with an exception in 2021 of being about 5 days early. We are predicting normal foliage dates this year. So I usually just plan to start around oct 20. if the color changes significantly early, I will contact you. It is never later than that final week of October however. The magical light are the sessions that take place at golden hour, so book early for the best lighting slot! Midday sessions are great for lighting too, because the early sunset time in fall allows for nice daylight starting around 3pm each day (golden hour will be closer to 4-5pm timeframe)

 

WHAT ARE YOUR LOCATIONS?

Sandhill Berries apple picking - date TBD (one day only)

Bushy Run Battlefield - fields + forest - dates various availability Oct 21-Nov 4

Mellon Park or Frick Park in Pittsburgh - date TBD (one day only)

Beautiful wedding at Phipps and the Steel City Rowing Club https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/8/beautiful-wedding-at-phipps-and-the-steel-city-rowing-club Skyler + River 

These two are a perfect match of fun personalities! I had such a blast photographing them on this gorgeous summer day! Their ceremony took place at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA on a sunny summer afternoon with just their closest family members in attendance. After that, we photographed them all around Phipps and then followed them to their full reception complete with a band and danced the night away at the Steel City Rowing Club in Verona, PA! We had an amazing sunset on the water so we were able to take Skyler and River down to the Allegheny River for the most gorgeous golden hour photos. The glowing light on her soft pink dress just gave me goosebumps! 

Congratulations Skyler and River on finding your matching puzzle piece in life! Cheers to a lifetime of being the perfect partner to each other.

Jonah & Missy's Wedding at Lingrow Farms https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/7/wedding-at-lingrow-farms Missy and Jonah were wed on June 11, 2022 on the most perfect weather day we had all year. It was warm, sunny, and not a bit of that heavy PIttsburgh humidity in the air. We started their day at Lingrow Farms where Missy and her bridesmaids were prepping for the day with professional hair and makeup artists. We hopped on their shuttle bus to the church and before they knew it, Missy and Jonah were saying I DO and we were off to the party. Their reception took place back at Lingrow Farms, one of my favorite country venues of all time. The farm is located in Leechburg, PA (Fun fact: I grew up in the small town of Leechburg!) and is absolutely beautiful from top to bottom. The grounds, the farmhouse, and the barn are all the most perfect farm wedding atmosphere you could ask for.  One of my favorite parts of Lingrow is their pond that reflects the blue sky and puffy clouds, adorned with lily pads and a row boat - truly something out of a romantic novel.  The barn twinkles with lights and has a breezy wrap around deck for all guests who want to escape to a quieter place for conversation.  Missy and Jonah were beaming with smiles the entire day. We had so much fun capturing their photos with their awesome bridal party who was willing to jump in to do silly & fun poses with full energy.  After their first dance, and Missy's epic father daughter coordinated dance, the party started and never ever stopped. Their dance floor was packed all night and the music, energy and love was beaming out of Lingrow for miles around.  

 

Congratulations to this amazing couple on tying the knot and cheers to the beginning of a beautiful, long, happy marriage together!

Mathew & Montana Wedding at Seven Springs Mountain Resort https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/7/wedding-at-seven-springs-mountain-resort  

Montana and Mathew had an early April wedding at Seven Springs. Expecting a spring vibe, but totally NOT surprised, it turned out to be a winter wedding; and what a dreamy snow globe filled day we had! I couldn't believe the quarter size snowflakes falling at just the right time, as soon as they finished their vows and we stepped outside to take their photographs. They truly had a wedding day to remember full of memories, family, beautiful decor and surprising weather! These two were such a joy to photograph, their number one focus was having a great day with family and friends and of course- marrying each other. The smiles never left their faces! Nothing could phase them, even a snowstorm in April!

Brittany and Jesse at Twin Tails Farm https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/7/country-wedding-deep-creek-md-twin-tails-farm I can't say enough about this gorgeous fall wedding day with Brittany & Jesse! From the scenic views at Twin Tails Farm near Deep Creek, MD to the glamorous, country feel, it was hard to not capture beautiful images! They had an elegant country theme, complete with lace & pearls mixed with cowboy boots, warm candle glow and loose greenery everywhere. I just love when a couple ties their personalities into their decor and theme, and you could tell this was just the perfect fit for these two love birds. The venue has several barns and buildings, separate area for ceremony and a glass like pond. It is one of the most beautiful venues I've seen in a long time! I can't wait to photograph at Twin Tails again! 

Congrats to Brittany and Jesse!

Stunning New Year's Eve Wedding https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/5/stunning-new-years-eve-wedding Samantha and David's Stunning NYE Wedding

A wedding on New Year's Eve is a wedding of exciting emotions and celebration like no other! Family and friends gather to celebrate the joining of a couple, and also to ring in the new year together as a one. A combination of celebrations at once, that certainly heightens the experience of the night!  This wedding started off with joyous children running about a hotel room while Samantha sat patiently with smiles while hair and makeup artists adorned her for the occasion.  If ever any nerves, they were not visible from what I could see!  David was equally as excited and calm, making jokes and having a drink as he and his groomsmen dressed in their tuxes.  The ceremony and reception were held in one of the most unique hotels in Pittsburgh,  the Kimpton Hotel Monaco.  The decor of this hotel is one of my favorites, there are funky carpets, bright colored doors, giant floral printed wallpapers and birdcage lampshades. Perhaps my favorite touch is the Victorian furniture and wainscoting of the second floor where guests can mingle during cocktail hour.  We escaped the hotel for some night photographs in the streets post-ceremony and rang in the new year later at midnight with everyone.  I had such a wonderful time photographing this wedding and working with this beautiful couple and their family & friends!

Alex and Ty's Gorgeous Blackthorne Wedding https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/5/alex-and-tys-gorgeous-blackthorne-wedding Alex and Ty's Gorgeous Blackthorne Wedding

Just a week after we all rang in the new year, Alex and Ty decorated the Club at Blackthorne early Saturday morning while hair and makeup buzzed about the bridal suite and groomsmen gathered to affix bowties and boutonnieres.  Alex had an emotional moment with her father's first look, read a letter from Ty that made her cry again, and finally after a very long wait... a walk down the aisle that made everyone shed at least a single tear or more.   Alex and Ty had a day bursting with happiness in every way possible. There were tears of happiness, laughter, moments of deep thought, and dance moves that shook the room.  There was certainly a rainbow of emotions and the most amazing glowing sunset to be the cherry on top.  My favorite moment of the day was photographing them twirling in the snow while the sun glowed behind her like a giant candle.  

Congratulations Ty and Alex, it was such a pleasure to photograph your engagement and wedding photos! I look forward to more opportunities to photograph you in the future.

Stunning Wedding at the Omni- William Penn https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/4/stunning-wedding-at-the-omni--william-penn Lauren and Coleman's Stunning Omni-William Penn Wedding

Lauren and Coleman had their wedding at one of my favorites venues in Pittsburgh, the Omni William Penn.  After many weddings shot there, I still love every single one that I get the opportunity to photograph at this amazing hotel.  Their wedding was absolutely wonderful in so many ways. Their family and friends were a joy to be around all day long, the love between this bride & groom was bursting like sun beams, and their choice of flowers, colors and decor was classic and beautiful. Lauren was graceful with nothing but joy and smiles all day long. Not a single moment of stress was detected, although I'm sure nerves were there somewhere!  Coleman was the same - cool, calm and collected. All day long, he was just bursting with happiness and laughter.  If I could choose to shoot the wedding for these two all over again - I would do so in a heartbeat! :)  

Congrats to this happy couple and best wishes for a long life together! I hope to photograph you again in the future as the years pass and perhaps your family grows!

Christmas in July! https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/4/christmas-in-july  

  CHRISTMAS IN JULY! 

For the first time ever, we are going to be offering early Christmas sessions - in July! By getting your Christmas portraits taken during the summer, you can eliminate some of the stress of getting everything done in such a small timeframe during the holidays, you'll get it at a special rate, and you get an exclusive new set! 

If your children are over the age of 2, we highly suggest giving this a try! Babies and toddlers around 12-18 mos tend to grow so much that 6 months could be a difference in their look, so we understand if you want to photograph little ones closer to the holidays. But with older kids, it can be quite nice to get these photos done early! Other benefits? School is out - easier to schedule!  Amazon and other online sites have holiday clothes year round, so no need to wait to shop for the seasonal change in stores.  And finally, you'll have your photos ready early so when sites like Shutterfly and Mpix run their "early card specials" in Oct/Nov, you'll get your holiday cards much cheaper!  Here are the details! 

 

Who:  Open to our SkySight VIP regulars!

What:  Christmas in July holiday sessions at a discounted rate

Where:  Our studio, 409 Coulter Ave, Greensburg PA, 15601

Stephanie and Jake's Magical Winter Wedding at Seven Springs Mountain Resort https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/4/stephanie-and-jakes-magical-winter-wedding-at-seven-springs-mountain-resort  

A Seven Springs Wedding to Remember! 

Stephanie and Jake truly have a love like no other. We hope you can see the love reflected in the following photographs of their special day, along with the beautiful words that Stephanie shared with us! Keep scrolling for more!

 

~ Some words directly from the bride & groom! ~ 

"We have been together for 6 years. We originally met at physical therapy in 2014, Jake was 14 and I was 16. Jake and I were both there from basketball related injuries. We were friends for a year, then officially began dating on June 10, 2015. We are high school sweethearts! We got engaged on leap day at Seven Springs on February 29, 2020. On the way up to Seven Springs, I was reading an article about Leap Year. One of the topics referenced how on Leap Day, the woman is supposed to propose to the man. I jokingly told Jake “Well, looks like I’m supposed to propose to you today, it’s Leap Day!!!” Jake played it off well and jokingly said “Fine by me, looks like I don’t have to buy a ring now!” Not sure how he played that off so cool and didn’t suspect I knew anything. 3 hours later he proposed to me on top of the Wagner Slope while skiing!!" 

The couple made the perfect choice to come back to Seven Springs for their wedding!

Q:How did you prepare for your wedding? 

A: My sister, mom, and bridesmaids were a huge help in planning the wedding. We got engaged right before COVID hit. We were lucky enough to secure the venue and all of the vendors we wanted.

Q: Did anything funny happen? 

A: Autumn was taking photos of me on the hotel balcony at Seven Springs. She went back inside for a minute and I happened to look down and saw Jake! I instantly dropped to the floor, laying down in my dress on the balcony so he couldn't see me. It was for sure a close call!!!

Q: What was the ceremony like?

A: Our ceremony was so meaningful to us. Ever since I was a little girl, I imagined my wedding ceremony being in a catholic church. It was at St. Raymond of the Mountains parish, although we are members of Our Lady of Grace. The church was so kind in letting our parish priest, Father Dan, marry us there. We have known Father Dan for many years and it meant so much to us to have him marry us. Jake and I chose not to do a first look, and wait until the special moment for when I walked down the aisle. I am so glad we decided to do this!

Q: What feelings and emotions were you having on this day? 

A: Jake and I were filled with so much love and happiness on our wedding day. We have been waiting for this day for many years now. There is so much anticipation and planning that leads up to this day. However, on the big day, I only had one thing on my mind, and that was marrying Jake. I didn’t mind if there were a few hiccups, because at the end of the day, it was still absolutely perfect.

Q: What was your favorite memory of the day? 

A: Everything about this day was more than we could have ever imagined. One of our favorite memories from the day was our first dance in the Winterberry Room. We danced to “From the Ground Up” by Dan and Shay. It was such a special moment we shared together. Halfway through the song, snow began falling (thanks to the snow machine from Second II None)! We will never forget this moment. The room was truly a winter/Christmas wonderland. Every square inch was breathtaking. One other favorite part of our reception was a group dance to “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. The snow machine was in full effect and it was such a fun time being surrounded with so much love and support from family and friends on the dance floor!

Q: What special traditions did you incorporate into your wedding day?  

A: Our wedding was very traditional. A special tradition we will never forget is the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance. We are both very close with our parents and to be able to incorporate these dances were so meaningful to us.

Q: Is there anyone you'd like to thank? 

A: We would like to thank our family, bridal party, and friends for sharing this special day with us. We would especially like to thank our parents and siblings for the unconditional love and support throughout our lives. We are so blessed to be surrounded by such loving people. We would also like to thank Autumn and Bill for capturing such beautiful, breathtaking photos on our wedding day. They were so wonderful, flexible and easy to work with. When we look back at the photos, it feels like we are reliving our special day. We will cherish these photos forever!

Thanks Stephanie and Jake for choosing us to capture your special day! It was great to be able to work with you and your families, and to share this amazing love filled day with you both! -Autumn & Bill

Jeff and Ashley's Romantic Fall Wedding at Rizzo's https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2022/2/the-mikell-wedding Jeff and Ashley's Romantic Fall Wedding at Rizzo's

We asked the happy couple about their wedding day and their responses are below...you can also look through some of the photos of the magical day: MIKELL_0001MIKELL_0001 MIKELL_0007MIKELL_0007 MIKELL_0016MIKELL_0016

Q: How did you prepare for the wedding?

A: "Our preparation was stressful as with any couple looking to get married. One of the more stressful things was finding a venue in 2021, being that most weddings postponed for Covid-19 in 2020 a lot of places were booked. Somehow, someway Rizzo's had a spot so we jumped on it without hesitation and hoped for the best. It turned out amazing!" MIKELL_0087MIKELL_0087 MIKELL_0120MIKELL_0120 MIKELL_0124MIKELL_0124

Q: What was the weather like? 

A: "On the week building up to our day, the forecast called for rain, rain, and rain. With our ceremony being outside this worried us the whole way up until the night prior. We had a little drizzle in the morning and the rain held off for a beautiful fall day with the perfect temperature. We couldn't have asked for better weather."   MIKELL_0130MIKELL_0130 MIKELL_0163MIKELL_0163

Q: Were there any special moments from the day?

A: "We were concerned with Michael being shy while pulling his sister Sophia down the aisle as the flower girl. With minimal practice runs and him never being in front of a crowd so large, this worried us. Once again, all of our worries were alleviated when he proudly came down that aisle, sister in tow in her little wagon. I stood up on the altar and was pretty much crying in joy when I saw them coming."

MIKELL_0238MIKELL_0238 MIKELL_0357MIKELL_0357 MIKELL_0359MIKELL_0359 MIKELL_0365MIKELL_0365 Q: What feelings/emotions were you experiencing on this day?

A: "As far as our feelings and emotions, we were just so incredibly happy. We noticed this as we swiped through our pictures and mentioned how truly happy we both look. That's the stuff that you can't fake, pure love and joy. Autumn captured this perfectly."​​​​​​​ MIKELL_0375MIKELL_0375 MIKELL_0386MIKELL_0386 MIKELL_0395MIKELL_0395 MIKELL_0420MIKELL_0420 MIKELL_0426MIKELL_0426 MIKELL_0453MIKELL_0453 MIKELL_0458MIKELL_0458 MIKELL_0463MIKELL_0463 MIKELL_0560MIKELL_0560 MIKELL_0569MIKELL_0569 MIKELL_0584MIKELL_0584 MIKELL_0602MIKELL_0602 MIKELL_0649MIKELL_0649 MIKELL_0653MIKELL_0653 MIKELL_0659MIKELL_0659 MIKELL_0681MIKELL_0681 MIKELL_0748MIKELL_0748 MIKELL_0749MIKELL_0749 MIKELL_0751MIKELL_0751 MIKELL_0756MIKELL_0756 MIKELL_0788MIKELL_0788 MIKELL_0873MIKELL_0873 MIKELL_0893MIKELL_0893

Q: "What was one of your favorite memories?"

A: Some of our favorite memories were just seeing all of our friends and families, from all different avenues and times in our life all there in one place to celebrate us. I said to Ashley at one point, we are so used to being at parties for other things, take a look around ,this is all for us! The day was just too short to take it all in!"

MIKELL_0902MIKELL_0902 MIKELL_0947MIKELL_0947 MIKELL_0952MIKELL_0952 MIKELL_0959MIKELL_0959 MIKELL_1159MIKELL_1159 MIKELL_1165MIKELL_1165 MIKELL_1174MIKELL_1174

Q: Is there anyone you'd like to thank?

A: "We just want to thank all of our family for helping out. Ashley's mom and Grandmother were a huge help in preparing the venue for the reception. Everyone who made cookies for our ginormous Pittsburgh cookie table. DJ Larry Hornyak for coming in on an extremely late notice and being available. And of course Autumn and Bill, who we can't thank enough. Autumn is so easy to work with and the finished product just speaks for itself. We could not be more appreciative and thankful as to how our photos turned out. It's something that we can look back on for the rest of our lives and re live every moment. Her work is second to none." 

Thank you so much Jeff and Ashley for choosing me to capture your beautiful day. It was such a pleasure to work with you and your families!

BLACK & WHITE SPECIAL

What is it? 

  • We are having a two month special in studio for families for this specific style/look.
  • This is a session that focuses on two looks -  Look #1: FUN & LIGHT and Look #2: DRAMATIC & DARK 
  • Both color and black and white images will be produced from the session. 
  • Your session will include BOTH backgrounds (white and black) so be prepared with outfits for each look.

  • Different combinations of photos will be taken - family group shots, singles of everyone in the family (including individual headshots of mom and dad), singles of children, sibling shots, and each parent with their child alone (mom with daughter, mom with son, dad with daughter, dad with son)

  • Pricing is based on # of people in the family, rather than a set time, but most sessions will be around an hour to 90 minutes depending on the number of people in the family. 
  • The images are designed to be a perfect collage on the walls in your home. You might like mixing the black background images with the white background images in the same wall collage - much like the style of a checkerboard.  Or, you can separate the looks doing all the white background photos in one area of the home, like your living room. And then perhaps group the black background photos in another room such as the master bedroom.

JUST HAVE A SINGLE CHILD THAT YOU WANT PHOTOGRAPHED? THIS SESSION WORKS FOR YOU TOO!

spudic_001spudic_001

  • Why do a photo session now, mid-winter, without a "typical reason" for getting family portraits done - like making a Christmas card? There are tons of reasons! First of all, if your kids are older than about 2 or 3, you can absolutely do this session in February or March and also use the photos for your holiday card at the end of 2022 - I'd say that is a big win win to be ahead of the game next holiday season!  Second, winter time is a great season to accomplish the photo session of your dreams because there are no holidays or summer vacations to try to schedule around.  Availability in winter is much easier to get in at our studio with more slots than the rest of the year, including weekends. And lastly, special deals are always a good reason!
  • Feeling a little intimidated about what to wear? I can help guide you with clothing guides, which are below (finding black and white clothing is as simple as shopping on amazon). I suggest mixing up the textures and patterns, and NOT solid black for everyone or solid white across the board either.  Also, don't match the exact style (don't all wear a button down white shirt).  Its best to mix it up - one person in a plain T, mom in lace, and dad in a velvet jacket for example!  In fact here are a few pinterest boards to help...

  • WHITE OUTFIT SUGGESTIONS   https://www.pinterest.com/autumnstankay/white-outfit-family-session/  

 

Excited? Me too! I can't wait to photograph your family in this beautiful combination of looks. Here are more recent photos from my black & white sessions to help inspire you!

My family Christmas traditions https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2021/12/my-family-christmas-traditions  

My Christmas season is very important to me - even though I'm busier than I am all year long, as well as have a toddler with a birthday in December, I make sure to set aside time every few days for a different tradition. Baking cookies and making gingerbread houses, decorating the tree, and putting up lights. I am sure you all  have your sacred traditions as well! Here's a little photographic story of my December with my daughter, who just turned three. I splashed in a few of her holiday photos from the studio as well! I couldn't resist adding some photos from last year as well, since we haven't had snow this year yet!

Enjoy!

Marty and Anthony's Wedding at Fin and Feather, Seven Springs https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2021/12/marty-and-anthonys-wedding-at-fin-and-feather-seven-springs Marty and Anthony's Fin and Feather Wedding at Seven Springs 

I had the pleasure of capturing Marty and Anthony's scenic mountain wedding, and couldn't be happier with how the day went!  Everything was perfectly smooth, on time, and stress free. They truly planned a wedding with romance, family, friends & love as the theme. The happiness was exuding from everyone's faces and capturing Marty and Anthony's love for each other was so easy to do - they made my job pretty easy! Fin & Feather is a beautiful cabin located within the Seven Springs property, the former vacation home of previous owners of the resort which you can now rent out. The ceremony took place on the porch and friends gathered in the living room and on the lawn on a perfectly warm fall day in October. Everyone stayed on the property in nearby cabins and spent the entire weekend celebrating the unity of two souls coming together.

Take a look at their photos and what they had to say about the big day!

Q; How did you prepare for your wedding?

A: For the most part, we coordinated the wedding ourselves. We knew that we wanted to have a cabin in the woods/mountain area type of wedding. We have a place in Hidden Valley and fell in love with the area so we tried to do something local around there. Luckily, Seven Springs had a cabin resort area that we can rent out for the weekend and booked the place minutes before another person wanted to reserve that same weekend! So we lucked out in getting our reservation. Things did get a little bit stressful just because of the uncertainty of COVID but everything fell into place!

A: We didn't really have any special traditions but we did try to give the wedding a kind of an Asian flair with the decorations of the Chinese lanterns. We wanted the wedding, and the weekend in general, to be about family, spending time together, and resembling somewhat of a normalcy.

Q: What was your favorite memory of the day? 
 A: The entire day felt like a whirlwind! But our favorite moments would have to be when everyone got together and helped us make our ceremony site a location to remember! Everyone helped with the decorations, placement, and making sure that we had the best moment of our lives. Also, the moment we exchanged vows and being surrounded by family and friends that gave us unconditional support was an emotion that cannot be described.

Q: What was the ceremony like?

A: The ceremony was intimate. We wrote our own vows in a pocket size leather journal that we gave to each other so that we will be able to reminisce about them at any time. We absolutely loved our officiant and he was very accommodating and flexible in what we wanted to do for the ceremony.

Westmoreland Museum Light Up Night Greensburg 2021 https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2021/12/westmoreland-museum-light-up-night-greensburg-2021 Light Up Night at the Westmoreland Museum

I had the privilege of capturing light up night at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art to kick off the holiday season. Being able to capture real and raw emotions of excitement is one of my favorite things to do as a photographer. To make the night even more magical, snow started falling right as the switch for the lights was being turned on! It was a great evening filled with s'mores, hot chocolate, and the beautiful lights of the museum.

Robin and Assegid's Stunning Mansion Wedding https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2021/9/robin-and-assegids-stunning-mansion-wedding-Linden-Hall-Dawson-PA Robin and Assegid's wedding day started out with Robin getting makeup done in her childhood home where her parents live. Her colors were a beautiful blend of lavender and blue. After a traditional ceremony in her family's church, they were off to the reception.  Linden Hall in Dawson, PA is quite a diamond in the rough to say the least. If you aren't from that area and haven't been invited to a wedding there, chances are you probably haven't heard of it. And, you really would be shocked to see what a beautiful gem this historic mansion is. Nestled south of Mt Pleasant in a rural area with amazing beautiful views, this location has everything a bride would dream of.  Grand staircase, large outdoor porch, fountains indoor and out, a view of hills as far as the eye can see, historic rooms upstairs to stay overnight or get ready in, big fireplaces and more. Their families were beaming with happiness for the bride and groom all day. Smiles and laughter were plentiful during dinner and the dance floor was full of fun energy from the very first dance. 

Congratulations to Robin and Assegid on the start of your beautiful journey together as husband and wife. Bill and I were so honored to be there to capture these amazing memories for you!
