Pittsburgh Rooftop Engagement Session | Strip District
The first time I received Adriane's inquiry about her wedding, I felt a really sweet and calm energy. Once I met them both, Michael and Adriane I knew they were just so awesome!! I'm not sure who was more excited about me documenting their wedding, me or them. Haha. When we started talking bout their engagement photo shoot, I secretly wanted them to choose to have their engagement session in The Strip District, so when they asked for my opinion, that was my strongest suggestion to them and I'm so glad they liked the idea!
Pittsburgh's Strip District is full of incredible spots to see, bars and shops that offer not just a broad selection of food, but drinks and entertainment. If I had to describe the strip district in a sentence, I would say that it's the perfect blend between the old and the new. It's one of the most versatile spots in the city to take pictures, have fun and let go.
We started off the session by the train rails and from there we walked and found unique spots that would fit Adriane and Michael's personality, which wasn't hard at all! I like to start my sessions one to two hours before the sunset so that we get that golden, softer light that comes out beautifully in the photos.
We saved the best for the very end! For me the best part was when we were able to see the beautiful Pittsburgh skyline and the city from the rooftop where Michael and Adriane looked like the protagonists of a romantic comedy. During that last set of photos I saw how Michael and Adriane really let go and were in the present moment enjoying each other and the fact that they're getting FREAKIN' married!
