Hannah and Matt | Twelve Oaks Mansion Wedding



It's always such a joy to photograph a wedding and witness two people starting their lives together. Every wedding is special and unique, and I always feel so privileged to be part of such an intimate and happy occasion. Hannah and Matt's wedding was a beautiful example of this. The couple tied the knot at a magnificent church and celebrated their marriage at the Twelve Oaks Mansion in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Thanks to the fantastic weather on their wedding day, the lighting was sublime, and I was able to get some gorgeous shots of everyone enjoying themselves. It was just perfect! The bride and groom looked so happy together, and it was just wonderful to see all their friends and family join them on their big day.


Hannah and Matt’s Wedding At The Twelve Oaks Mansion


Hannah and Matt met each other when they were both in grad school. These college sweethearts love going out for delicious dinners and movies. Like every couple, Hannah and Matt's proposal story was something really special. Matt proposed to Hannah on the peak of a mountain while they were hiking in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Matt, if you are reading this, 10 points for that excellent planning!


Hannah and Matt's wedding was everything I knew it would be: Fun, full of love, and so wonderfully unique. Every time I took their picture, they would make each other laugh, and their love would shine through. I began photographing their wedding day with the getting ready moments. As Hannah’s bridesmaid helped her slip on her gorgeous lace wedding dress, Hannah chuckled and giggled, getting all excited to marry the man she loves. It was such an adorable moment to capture, and she looked like a vision in white.


Matt was getting ready with his groomsmen in another room. It was a quick portrait session with the boys, and they all looked dashing in their bow ties. After getting all dressed up, it was time for the first look! Matt patiently waited for his bride with his back turned. He knew that the first look would be worth the wait and patience. The nervous yet excited look on Hannah's face as she walked down the stairs was unforgettable. And it goes without saying that the look on Matt’s face when he saw his bride for the first time was so precious! They both held hands and smiled at each other. It was such a sweet moment to capture.

Hannah and Matt tied the knot at a church. The wedding ceremony was breathtaking, and the lighting was perfect for capturing some stunning photos. The sunlight filtered through the stained glass windows, casting a warm and magical glow over the proceedings. Hannah and Matt looked absolutely radiant as they exchanged their vows and sealed their marriage with a kiss.


After the wedding ceremony was over, I took group pictures of the couple with their loved ones outdoors! Hannah and Matt were such a fun-loving couple who really wanted their wedding photos to reflect their personality. Hannah, with her bridal party, and Matt, with his groomsmen, went to the famous Roberto Clemente Bridge! It was actually such a great addition to the wedding photos.


Hannah and Matt's wedding reception was a sight to behold. The décor was exquisite, and the five-layered wedding cake was a work of art. The highlight of the evening was when one of the bridesmaids was giving a speech and made everyone burst into laughter. It was a truly special moment. Hannah and Matt were so happy, and you could see that they were having the time of their lives.
