Wedding Party in Hudson River Park

 

img_1660

Saturday afternoon, my sister and I were walking back from Battery Park with three of the grandchildren.

The kids were running ahead on the Dog Free Zone boardwalk.

Oops!

We bumped into this wedding party taking photos so we doubled back to the concrete walk along the Hudson River where I took a quick picture.

The female attendants had to be freezing.

 

 


Late Afternoon at U of Pitt Campus

 

Friday afternoon  I was photographing senior portraits of two young women by the Cathedral of Learning at Pitt. ( no one actually says “University of Pittsburgh”)

In between their outfit changes, I photographed the tall tower in different lights.

Then a bride and groom walked by, just married!

I asked if I might photograph them and they said,  sure!

I even asked the groom to move a bit so his mouth wasn’t hidden. Sweet.

Those were some killer heels (in blue)

And then a woman walked by with balloons.

It was fun to see some different sights.  And capture them, too.

All in all it was a magical afternoon, especially with the unexpected barefoot bride and the balloon woman.

Magic is the weekly photo challenge.


David Lujan of Gallery Black Lagoon

People at Work Series.

From the April wedding in Austin, Texas.

David Lujan co-owner(with his wife) & curator of Black Lagoon: art+ yoga and artist.  He tended the bar at the wedding celebration and made the little fairy chairs out of the champagne tops. He was sketching a tree house for his daughter, as I remember.  I must carry a reporter’s notebook to write down the details.

A lucky dog who was rescued from under a bush. Sweet pup!

Lots of gatherings documented throughout the course of a year and a few from years ago.

The group photos pose a challenge, getting everyone with you simultaneously.  I’ve included some more candid shots.

Happy Birthday to my DIL

You’ve seen her featured on the blog if you’re a follower.

This blog sends lots of love from your MIL on your special day! Erika is a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, friend and DIL and a beautiful person, inside and out.  She ‘s really good to me and I’m so fortunate.  That whole “in-law relationship” can be tricky, eh Erika?  I try to be a good one, too.

(You watch, she’s going to let me know that Henry and Josie, the Airedales, would have liked their photos on the blog today, too!)

Jarrod and Lauren’s Wedding Day

A first peek at some of the highlights of Jarrod and Lauren’s Wedding.  The weather was cooperative in that the summer thunderstorm didn’t start until they were safely inside the reception. Perfect timing!

Two caricaturists captured the guests happy expressions. The bride had her caricature done by Jeffrey D. Harris at a festival in 2007 or 8 and tracked him down for her wedding. He was assisted by Dave.  The bride and groom put their likeness in a frame and all the guests signed the surrounding mat.

Pittsburgh weddings delight in their cookie tables and Jarrod and Lauren’s was something to see! (and delicious to taste)

The bride’s attention to detail was evident throughout the day.  A lovely wedding. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. James.
