We do photography the right way.

Kenny’s Five Faithful Years

Kenny and Faith just celebrated their five-year anniversary! Faith surprised Kenny with a little photo shoot with us to celebrate this milestone moment in their life together. But Faith had also another surprise in mind… She brought along a tux for Kenny and her wedding dress for herself (those photos are further down). After five years and three beautiful children, not only did Faith fit in her dress, but she looked stunning! The funniest part about it is that we shot along the North Shore when they were all dressed up, and cyclists and joggers kept complimenting them thinking they’d just gotten married :)~ Β  It’s always great seeing other people’s joy for new couples… or couples that are going five years strong and counting.

We actually started the shoot on our own street. We live on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Not the prettiest neighborhood, but there’s a lot of industrial buildings and businesses on our street that we’ve been wanting to use for a shoot for a while! Finally we got a chance. There’s still a bunch more left to photograph, too.

I really loved Faith’s dress. It added a lot of motion and drama to all the photos. The black lines went well with this trailer wall we found.

So playful and cute!

What’d I tell you about the dress?

Random red ball we found and decided to use because it matched Faith’s shoes. No, there is no metaphorical meaning behind it. It’s just a red ball.

Peek-a-boo! This pose was Heather’s idea, but I love how natural and cute Kenny and Faith made it work!

You hold me, I hold you… Kenny was a bit skeptical that Faith could hold onto him though.

This shot would not have been possible without a little strobist action. I can’t say enough how much I love using off-camera lighting. It’s good to have a wife who works with you on these shoots πŸ™‚

They really did look like a newly wed couple!

Usually we have to beg brides to see if they’re willing to rock out their dress in suspect places. However, getting in her dress was all Faith’s idea, and when I first heard they’d been married five years I was skeptical about the whole thing, but she looked great!

The sky was crazy beautiful. Clouds so puffy they looked like whipped cream!

A good man holds his wife’s shoes when she has to walk on a shoot. Kenny, you sir, are a good man.

I simply couldn’t believe this sky. So glad we had an amazingly beautiful day to work with. That’s a rare occasion in Pittsburgh.

We usually walk our dogs (well, Blake walks us) along the North Shore by the river, and when summer turned and I saw this foliage climbing all the way up the bridge, I knew I wanted to take shots here.

Can’t do a shoot without a little danger! Right in front of the Roberto Clemente Bridge.

Kenny & Faith, you guys were amazing to work with. You looked great and were really fun and easy to photograph! You made our job look easy πŸ™‚
