John & Lauren - Pittsburgh Proposal Engagement Photography http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/6/john-lauren---pittsburgh-proposal-engagement-photography It was raining buckets as I drove to the South Side to photograph John's proposal to Lauren. They were celebrating their 5th year anniversary at The Claddagh where they had their first date. I anxiously watched the sky in hopes that the rain would stop by the time they finished dinner. John wanted to go through with it no matter what so I was prepared to shoot in the rain if I had to. Like magic, the skies cleared and the sun came back out just in time! John proposed on the riverwalk trail by South Side Works and we continued to take a few more photos on The Hot Metal Bridge afterward. I'm so happy the weather cooperated and we were able to have an awesome little shoot. Oh yeah, she said yes!!

Kim & Alex - Washington D.C. - Pittsburgh Engagement Photography http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/6/kim-alex---washington-d-c---pittsburgh-engagement-photography Destination weddings and engagement sessions are always so much fun. Shooting in Pittsburgh is awesome but you're limited with only so many locations, so I was definitely excited to get back to D.C. and see what it had in store for us. We met Kim and Alex at The Carnegie Institution for Science, where their wedding will be held next year. It was great to get a tour of this beautiful building and have an idea of what we'll be working with. We took photos at a variety of places, including some of the more well known monuments, iconic buildings as well as some off the beaten path spots in historic Georgetown. We even got to check out Montrose Park where Alex proposed! Thank you Kim and Alex for giving us a glimpse of your world and for being so generous while we were in town. I can't wait to work with you again!

Samantha & Isaac - Harpers Ferry Engagement Session http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/4/samantha-isaac I recently traveled to the historic town of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia to photograph Samantha & Isaac's engagement session. They currently call the town home but are having their wedding in Pittsburgh this November. This was my first time in Harpers Ferry and we really lucked out with beautiful weather the day of the shoot. I was initially shocked to see all the tourists there but around 5 pm, people started to clear out and we pretty much had the town to ourselves. There were so many amazing areas to photograph here including the cobblestone streets, church ruins and a beautiful field of bluebell flowers. Sam and Isaac were great tour guides and I had an awesome time working with them. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in November!

Om Lounge -Pittsburgh Yoga Photography http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/4/om-lounge-yoga-studio Recently I did a shoot for a new yoga studio in East Liberty called Om Lounge. This was a different type of shoot for me because I've never photographed an actual yoga class in session before. Trying to be discreet and still get great candid photos was challenging at times but overall I'm really pleased with how everything turned out. This studio space is so welcoming and has positive vibes as soon as you enter the front door. If you're interested in yoga even the slightest bit, I highly recommend you check out the Om Lounge. I know most of the instructors here personally and I can say they are among the best in the Burgh. For more information you can contact Suzanne. Here are some of my favorites from the session.

Pewabic Pottery - Live Raku Demonstration - Pittsburgh Photography http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/3/pewabic-pottery---live-raku-demonstration I've been lucky enough to photograph some really cool events recently during the slow season for weddings. Pewabic pottery is a ceramic studio based in Detroit. Last week, a team of their artists brought a mobile studio to Carnegie for the NCECA Exhibition at Standard Ceramics. They performed live Raku demonstrations which was so cool to watch as well as photograph. 

Western-style raku usually involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials. Once the materials ignite, the containers are closed. This produces an intense reduction atmosphere which effects the colors in glazes and clay bodies. The pottery is then placed into a bucket for cooling and ready to take home. Thanks to the Pewabic team for having me, it was a great experience!

Juicy Brews - Pittsburgh Event Photography http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/3/juicy-brews On St. Patrick's Day I photographed the Juicy Brews event at The Ace Hotel in East Liberty hosted by Hop Culture . Both the morning and afternoon tasting sessions were sold out! This event was packed with great merch, live music and awesome beers from all over the country. Thanks to Kenny & Travis for having me!  If you're a craft beer fan, you definitely need to check out their site; www.hopculture.com and follow them on Instagram @hopculturemag. Here's a few of my favorite photos from the event.

Andrea & Jake - Heinz History Center Wedding Photography http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2018/3/andrea-jake Andrea & Jake kicked off the 2018 season in epic fashion! We took full advantage of the gorgeous bridal suite in the Renaissance Hotel, photographing details and portraits on the balcony overlooking downtown. Doing our best to dodge the rain, we managed to get a few more outdoor photos on the Clemente Bridge before heading to the ceremony at Heinz History Center. No HHC wedding would be complete without a few Pittsburgh trolley photos in the Great Hall! To top off the evening Andrea & Jake celebrated their reception at Olive or Twist which was such a cool little spot and perfect for a more intimate wedding. Thank you to Jason Furda for 2nd shooting.

Best of 2017 - Wedding Edition http://www.chaseimages.com/blog/2017/12/best-of-2017---wedding-edition I was able to finish this just in the nick of time! Today marks the last day of 2017 and to keep with tradition, I wanted to showcase some my favorite wedding photos of the year. I tried to include at least one shot from every wedding I photographed this year because each and every one was special to me. Thank you to my awesome second shooters as well as other photographers I have worked with. Most of all, thank you to my amazing brides and grooms. These are weddings I will never forget and I feel very grateful to be a part of. I'm looking forward to 2018 and the great memories it will bring. I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Years Eve. Thank you for looking!
