A Classy Downtown Pittsburgh Engagement Session | Holly + Cody


This engagement session was one that is a little different than my norm, so let me explain with a bit more text than usual. Let me back it up a second to earlier on this extremely warm + humid summer day...I was working with Mitchell as he created a promo video for this wonderful photography business of mine, and I was super excited when he suggested I also grab a couple to include in this video. I knew exactly the perfect couple for this opportunity, and contacted Holly right away.

I met Holly about just over 8 years ago as we were training for college soccer, and she later became my roommate for the next 3 years (and obviously an extremely important person in my life). I was BEYOND ecstatic when I received a phone call just a few weeks before that her best friend had popped the question on vacation, and soon they would be planning a wedding! At this point, Holly and I had already discussed engagement photos and other wedding planning tips.

So back to the engagement session...sunset is right around the corner and we start with their session in cute summer outfits overlooking our stunning city of Pittsburgh. This area of Mt. Washington is one of my favorites, and I love how sunset and the night lights look with beautiful couples in love. Once our video section of the day was over, we decided to continue through the rest of the city in their most elegant outfits. Don't worry, we took a little break for a delicious Primanti's sandwich. Once we finished our late dinners, we walked over to Point State Park and then finished up with a quick set in front of the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown. I'm so glad they dressed up in their classiest apparel as it fit in perfectly with the energy and lighting of our city. I love mixing it up and all the laughs and genuine smiles that are within this gallery.

This is a great gallery too for outfit inspiration!

Check out their amazing session and wish them luck on their upcoming wedding!
