Spring is right around the corner!

It might seem hard to believe, because as I write this, the weather outside is certainly full blown W-I-N-T-E-R.  But I'm positively ready to "think spring" and can't wait to see those temps start to rise and before we know it, the blooms will appear. 

This spring I've decided to host a special set for a combination spring special / Mother's Day event. I've absolutely loved doing the Mommy & Me sessions last year on the bed, so I wanted to bring that event back, but add an amazing new set as well! I finished the new set just a few days ago, so I jumped in to model it myself. I know you'll love it as much as I do! I've been wanting to try a more boho floral vibe for a few years and finally decided to design one with my own spin on it. 

The special is your choice between doing it as a Mother's Day session, or just the kids for a spring session. You can do either, or both! read more below and I'll explain further!

HeavenlyCollage-30x40HeavenlyCollage-30x40
 

 

 

So here are the details! 

There will be two sets. You can choose one or two, but I highly suggest doing them both for a longer session, they're both so beautiful and very different.  You can also choose if you want to do it as a mother/child set, or just the kids which I am calling a spring set.

 

The sets are:

Set 1) Boho floral ladders (shown above)   

Set 2) Loft white bed (shown below)

 

Clothing:

You can bring your own attire or look through the studio closet to wear something that I have. I don't have every size available, but many common sizes for moms, and young children (boys and girls).  You can do different clothing for each set, or the same if you wish.  Feel free to inquire on what styles and sizes are available.

Pricing:

Package will be based on the length of your shoot that you pick, and if mom does photos with children, or only the kids as simply a spring session.   Be sure to let me know what you plan on choosing when you schedule so we can book the appropriate amount of time for you.

Easter egg dying minis 2023 https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2023/1/easter-egg-dying-minis-2023  

Easter 2023 

Egg dying mini sessions

For the last few years I've captured some amazing moments of my daughter dying Easter eggs, a tradition I remember so fondly from my own childhood and excited to pass on to her. I decided that this year I will offer Easter Egg Dying Sessions in my studio! The exact set will be slightly different from what you see below, but happy to reveal that they will be inspired by what you see (which were images taken in my dining room at home.) The sessions will include candid moments of your children, close ups of their adorable small hands and their proud faces when they see the results of their amazing eggs! Sessions will be scheduled 30 mins apart and will include approximately 20-25 photos. 

(Date in March to be released)

Price $295

You can also do this session in your own home, which makes the photos that much more special to remember! You can schedule a regular one hour photo session at your house, and we will capture not only some egg dying, but family portraits at your house as well! For pricing on home sessions, visit our rate information page.

NEW YEAR, NEW HEADSHOTS!  Join us for a headshot mini session day January 2023 https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2023/1/new-year-new-headshots-join-us-for-a-headshot-mini-session-day-january-2023 BEALKO_0114BEALKO_0114
 

NEW YEAR, NEW HEADSHOTS! 

Come join us for our headshot mini session day! 

 

date 1 - Jan 18

date 2 - Jan 23 

 

***1/11/23: UPDATE!!! THE JANUARY SESSIONS ARE ALMOST SOLD OUT (2 SLOTS LEFT AS OF TODAY) SO WE HAVE DECIDED TO ADD A THIRD DATE WHICH WILL BE IN FEBRUARY ON 2/21!!

 

You can do one outfit per time slot, feel free to purchase additional time slots. Each slot will be 20 mins, and you will receive a collection of proofs online to choose from, then 1 image of your choice from the proofs will be fully edited and emailed to you as digital file for your usage however you wish (print, online, etc).

 

Cost $125 per slot , $100 for each additional slot.

 

I encourage you to consider a double slot, which will be 30 mins for $225! Two outfits, two sets, lots of proofs to choose from, and two final chosen images > having a little more time will definitely yield more variety and choices for you, as well as give you an additional photo for later this year when you want to refresh your look for the second half of 2023 on social media.  A headshot for now, and one for later!

Kaela & Steven's Fall Wedding at Mansions on Fifth over Thanksgiving Weekend https://www.skysightphotography.com/blog/2023/1/kaela-steven-wedding-at-mansions-on-fifth-fall-and-photos-at-mellon-institute-columns Kaela and Steven had a beautiful fall day in late November for their wedding at Mansions on Fifth! Their families came together from locations near and far for this special occasion on the day after Thanksgiving.  After an exciting first look, we went to the columns at the Mellon Institute for some absolutely amazing portraits of these two. My job is so easy when the couple is so stunning... you'll see what I mean! Take a look below at their gorgeous day! 


Congrats to Kaela and Steven on your wedding and best wishes for a beautiful future together. Bill and I had the most wonderful day photographing you and your families!

WHITE SNOWFLAKE SET WITH MOD BOXES:

The white snow set is modern, simple, and bright! its fun and cheerful, and will match any holiday card you choose. You can do this set with a suit/tie and ballgown, or with casual clothing like a white wool sweater! The theme of this set is winter and snow! Guess what? We have a real snow machine! So much fun for a family, a couple, or even just a headshot for a social media influencer photo shoot!

GREEN & GOLD SET:

The green set is classic, and can include the green/gold bench or nothing at all if you prefer to do a fun photobooth effect! I love the different options this simple set has to offer - either dramatic and timeless, or fun and goofy! Perfect for a family or couple set as well! The gold elements make it elegant so I suggest dressy attire for this set - black, green, silver, gold and even gray will work wonderful on this set. Or try red if you want to make it more of a fun holiday cheerful shot! Reindeer can be removed if you prefer to not have holiday elements.

RED SET:

The red set is a simple and gorgeous small settee, sized for a single person or very small family or siblings. This set is gorgeous when wearing red or black! Its timeless and one of my favorites for this year. We used this set for Valentines day last year, and can be on your wall all year long without looking like a holiday set to be honest.

VINTAGE LADDERS, TREE, GARLAND AND LIGHTS SET:
 

The ladder set is back after a year being benched for the holidays. I changed it up a bit and we'll have more ladders, and lots of lights! this sparkling favorite is always a big hit with everyone. I love this set for children and families, but the lights also make it romantic for a couple photo as well! If you love the blowing hair look, just request the fan for your shoot!

Yes we do have a snow machine in the studio this year!!! But, if the weather cooperates by bringing an early winter, we'lll have some opportunities for outdoor snow as well! If you are interested in doing outdoor shoot with snow, you must get on our snow list to be contacted when snow arrives, and be available on short notice. We can't plan for it much more than a few days in advance of course! Below are shots from the last few years of snow sessions at Bushy Run and Twin Lakes.

BRICK WALL AND WINDOWS SET: 

This set is done easily with either our small trees or the large wreath! I love this set for casual setting and clothing.

REINDEER: 

This is such a fun idea and last year was my first time trying it. It was a big hit when we shared this on social media so I figured I'd offer it for a client if anyone were interested! If you want to try this amazing Reindeer portrait session, we just need to schedule the makeup artist to come to your session about 45 mins prior to do the hair and makeup. Extra fees apply for the MUA.  Props provided!

NEW YEARS EVE:

The New Years set for this year is similar to last year but we've added 2023 sunglasses to wear, new crowns and hats, and champagne glasses! (Ginger ale for the bubbly!) We're keeping the fun confetti of course - the best part of this set! This is one of my favorites, it is SO fun and everyone loves adding these to the back of their holiday card. It is perfect for a couple, family, a single child or even an adult who wants a fun photo of themselves for social media.

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 

When: July - various dates TBD 

Why:  Because getting something accomplished easier, cheaper, and early is always a great thing! 

 

Special Rate:  $500, two sets, digitals and copyright release included 

 

We will have two sets- Scroll to see more! 

* NOTE:  IF THERE ISN'T A HIGH DEMAND FOR THIS EVENT, IT WILL BE CANCELLED. WE WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST FIVE CLIENTS TO SIGN UP IN ORDER TO SET UP THE HOLIDAY SETS. SINCE THIS IS OUR FIRST ATTEMPT, WE'RE HOPING IT IS A BIG HIT BUT WON'T KNOW FOR SURE UNTIL WE OPEN UP FOR SCHEDULING. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING!

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
