Travelling to PA to photograph this wedding was such an amazing experience. It was drizzling rain all day but the photos were still turning out amazing and I told Val, “you can’t even tell it’s raining!” to which she responded “well that sucks!” to which everyone laughed. I got to learn what a Pittsburgh cookie table was as I watched their friends and family unpack many different kinds of cookies: chocolate chip, peanut butter blossom, Italian wedding cookie, cookie bars, puff pastries and so many more.
Zack and Val met while attending a party that maid of honor Jaclyn hosted. From that night, Jaclyn knew that this was the perfect match as she witnessed the two proceed to have a wrestling match in her living room. I also think that she probably knew she would be attending their wedding a few years later. When Zack reached out for the first time since we were friends in training for the Air Force to ask for a couple’s session for him and Val, I couldn’t resist! And meeting Val I knew I would be photographing their wedding before long. I hope they are getting settled in their new home down in Mississippi reminiscent of our training days.
This wedding day couldn’t have been possible without the help of the following vendors:
