Caitlin and I first met at College, and she quickly became the kind of friend that you want to always be around. I could fill a blog post with her praises, but one of the biggest compliments that I can give her is that I am sure she is going to be a wonderful friend, help mate, and wife to her new husband Luke. I was absolutely honored when Caitlin asked me to be her wedding photographer, and was blessed to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the love and respect they have for each other. Their wedding day was a celebration of God’s purpose in marriage and His goodness in giving Caitlin to Luke, and Luke to Caitlin. Thank you both for inviting me to play a special role in your beautiful day. I also have to note that the bride and many of her talented friends and family filled the wedding with DIY touches and Cait’s own gorgeous style– everything was beautiful!

I’ve been privileged to photograph a handful of weddings over the past couple of years. Although Heather Grace Photography remains dedicated to natural light lifestyle photography for children and families, every now and then I am asked– and agree– to turn into a wedding photographer under special circumstances! I was so happy to turn into a wedding photographer for the sister of an old childhood friend of mine…happy to be an up-close witness to the love and dedication between the bride, groom,their friends and families; happy to celebrate their union; and happy to see first-hand how much they adore each other! Any photographer can appreciate having two subjects that are more than willing to show their connection in front of the camera– whether they’re five years old or have been married for five minutes (as was the case here!)
I hope you enjoy a small peek at their wedding photos, and may you all continue to enjoy the time with family and loved ones that this happy season brings to us!

I’m not a wedding photographer, but every once in a while a wedding comes along that I just can’t pass up. A couple weeks ago one such happy event took place in Pittsburgh, and I was honored to be the one behind the camera. The bride is a good friend of Steve’s and mine from college, and I was able to play the roles of both photographer and guest (which means I helped myself to the amazing dessert table, rather than trying to sneak a bite while no one was looking!) I want to thank the bride and groom and their families for entrusting their memories to me, for making me feel like a part of the family (as always), and for being so in love that my job was effortless! I also need to thank my sis for being my assistant for the day.
And now for a little peek into the wedding day…
