In my opinion, one of the most beautiful churches in Pittsburgh at which to have your wedding, is Shadyside Presbyterian Church. There are a few things to know when having your ceremony at Shadyside Presbyterian…..the most important thing to know is that your wedding photographer is NOT allowed inside the sanctuary during the ceremony. This is completely understandable, since the ceremony is sacred, but it makes the photographer’s job very difficult. I LOVE a challenge! Every time I’ve been there, I’ve had a great experience, and I can’t wait to go back!
This couple decided to have a “first look” before their ceremony. There are so many places to go for portraiture inside and outside of the church….
As the photographer, you are allowed in the choir loft as the bride walks down the aisle…..but you have to come down right as she gets to her groom at the top of the aisle.
Since photographers aren’t allowed in the sanctuary during the ceremony, this is the view we have…….
We are still able to create photos, but they just need to be captured through the crack in the door……
No problem! Photo on left was taken through the door. The photo on the right was taken after the church lady opened the doors.
Thank you to Katia Forero for having me along for the ride at this wedding!
