Wedding Venue Photography Feature - Disalvo's Station Latrobe, PA

October 23, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Disalvo's Station in Latrobe is one of my "regular" wedding venues! I absolutely love getting booked for events and weddings here. I photograph several at Disalvo's each year and am very familiar with the venue, surrounding areas for photos in Latrobe, as well as St Vincent's Basilica just down the street where many ceremonies are held, although many take place right at the venue!  


Disalvo's coordinator (Mike) and owner (Joey Disalvo) are top notch in service for their brides and grooms.  Everything at this venue goes smoothly for each and every wedding. The food is phenomenal, and the venue is so very unique which is one of the main reasons for this blog! I wanted to highlight the history and interesting features of this cool wedding venue by sharing several weddings we have done here over the last few years. As a photographer, I can tell you that not all venues are created equal... this one checks all the boxes for "cool" factors. just read on and check out the photos below to see what I mean.


For those who are not familiar with Disalvo's Station, it is a historic landmark event venue in the Laurel Highlands, a beautifully restored 1903 train station which still has active trains passing through daily.  As a photographer, I love that I have so many interior & exterior photography opportunities. We always capture some portraits of the bride and groom at the waiting area of the train tracks above the station. It is a classic looking photo spot, where I love to capture shots of the couple as if they are waiting on a train to arrive. It takes you a century back in time.  Not to worry, I practice safety over and above all else when we are photographing next to the tracks - we never pose couples or bridal party ON the tracks, and always stay behind the yellow line, because trains do speed past often, in fact we are usually able to capture images of it flying past behind the couple.   Inside of Disalvo's we are able to use the "Prima classe" railroad car, the cigar bar in basement with more railroad car seating, and the architecture of the old station like the tunnel and track signs for this Latrobe, PA stop.


A few amazing benefits to having your wedding here?  Great food by an amazing chef, interior and covered photography options for the weddings that have unfortunate rain (train track waiting area is covered!), unique structures inside, a "conversation starter" for your guests about every angle you turn in the venue, as well as some options for having your ceremony on site.  As a photographer with 20 years of experience, I have the knowledge of how to properly light all of the darker lit areas in very beautiful and unique ways.


For those who want a beautiful off site location for the photography, Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve is only a few miles away and is a hidden gem in the area for nature photos. This reserve requires a yearly approved photography pass to photograph there, which I have renewed every year. I have a great relationship with the reserve and approval each year due to the fact that I always keep my pass up to date and follow all of the photography rules they have set in place to preserve nature there. So when booking us for your wedding at Disalvo's you'll get this extra bonus to be able to do your photos here, than not every photographer can offer.  You can check out more of the nature reserve on this page of my site.
