SO EXCITED to share these photos of my sister-in-law and her husband-to-be!! I am beyond excited for these two to tie the knot and spend the rest of their lives together because it's so evident that God has brought them together.
Alisha and I have become less like an "in laws" and more like real sisters over the past couple of years, and for that, I am beyond grateful. She's truly one of my closest friends and confidants. So whenever these two asked me to take their engagement photos, obviously I was BEYOND pumped because I just love them so stinking much! (And in case you were wondering if I am photographing her wedding, I am NOT, because I am in it! ;) - but we have her covered with one of Pittsburgh's best wedding photographers, in my opinion!). Also, I have to give a major shout out to JJ for being literally one of the best guys I have ever photographed. He is a natural!
Since I know these two so well, I knew their engagement session had to be something special. Originally, we had planned to take a little trip down to the Strip District, but because the day we chose for their engagement session ended up being bitterly cold, we stayed close to home and hit up the ever-wonderful Historic Harmony! We stopped by the Wunderbar Cafe for some coffee and then headed back to Alisha's parents' house for a little vegan pizza making! These two LOVE to cook together, so a little pizza making in the kitchen was the perfect way to reflect their relationship a little bit more!
So without further ado, here are just a few of my favorites from their session!!
Love these two SO much! Huge thanks to Audrey for braving the cold with us to carry everything! She's the true MVP!!
