Triumph in Pittsburgh














WOW! We had a fantastic shoot in Pittsburgh and Sharon, Pennsylvania. David and Tori were magnificent and truly a couple that can deal with adversity. We started off the shoot in a beautiful church that was amazing and then headed off to a watermill to have a photo shoot....









Well, the limo driver got lost...and that killed the time for the photo shoot. So then we went to the Reception and I walked up to the DJ to ask him what the first dance song was going to be. He told me he didn't know because he thought the bride and groom were bringing the CD....I told him he might want to check with the B&G....when he did and she said she didn't have it the poor bride looked so disappointed...














Leslie and I then decided enough was enough (play the dramatic superhero music)....I asked David and Tori what the song was (Want To by Sugarland). I then pulled out the laptop, hooked up the wireless internet card....downloaded the song from Itunes...and Leslie loaded the song onto my Ipod.














When we went and showed the couple we had the song....it made for a Kodak....I mean Nikon moment. The first dance was beautiful as was the rest of the Reception. We then asked them if they would like a private photo shoot after the wedding...and boy am I happy they said, "Yes." We took them throughout the city...in alley ways....old courthouse buildings.....and even in the middle of the street. It was one of our best shoots ever. Take a look at their slideshow and let me know what you think!!!!







Regards,

I am so getting you a cape for those superhero moments! Thank goodness for wireless internet cards, eh? My only question is, how did Leslie know how to download the song to your iPod? I thought she was still listening to 8-tracks!

Great shoot, and great slideshow!

First off, I might add I am disappointed in myself that I didn't see this blog first although I do have a good excuse.. Kaydence had to go to the doctor today.. she has an ear infection!
:( Secondly, this was a fantastic shoot and I'm glad all worked out in the in. And last, but NOT LEAST, just because I don't own an ipod doesn't mean I don't know how to use it! And I'm supposed to get one for Christmas.. SO THERE! :)

It does look like it was a fantastic shoot. I can't wait to see the slideshow for the LA wedding Don, Bradey and I shot.

Good luck with that iPod request... hopefully Santa will be nice to you.

For the record....I actually downloaded the song....Leslie sat in for a photo op....she looks better in the picture than I do. She tried to download it on her tape deck Sony Walkman....and I told her that Itunes doesn't accommodate 80's technology....she was devastated.
