Brandon and Amanda’s engagement session was something out of a romance novel. We wanted to showcase the fierce love that they share for each other, and the love story that started it all.
Before Amanda even noticed Brandon, Brandon had his eye on her for a long time. Brandon was very good friends with Amanda’s sister growing up and would often make jokes referencing his crush with Amanda. He would goof around telling Amanda’s sister that he would one day be her brother-in-law.
Fast forward, several years later. Amanda gets a message from Brandon on Facebook, “like any true romantic story”. Amanda, now a single mom to a beautiful two year old girl, was skeptical accepting the date he had asked her on. After a few months of dating, Brandon was put to the ultimate test. Like any single parent knows, the true test of where a relationship can go, is surrounding their purpose, their child. So when Brandon was given the wonderful opportunity to meet Amanda’s daughter, Alexis, it was a defining moment.
And as you might have predicted, it was the start of a brand new family.
Brandon and Alexis, have been thick as thieves since the day they met, and Amanda can’t help but fall in love with Brandon more and more. This past February, Brandon took his family on an “average family outing”, that would change their lives forever. He got down on his knee at the National Aviary and asked Amanda to be his wife.
After hearing their love story, we knew we had to make their engagement session special. So when discussing their engagement session, we talked about how Alexis needed to be a part of it. The calligrapher for their RSVP set, The Soul Typewriter, wrote a beautiful message for guests from Alexis.
We grabbed beautiful photos with this wonderful message and it really showcased their love story.
These three were “dressed to the nines”. Brandon wore a sharp navy blue suit while, Amanda wore a gorgeous, rose gold sequined gown from Rent the Runway. While Amanda stood stunning with beautiful detailed hair and makeup from Glam to Go, amazing floral accents, from The Community Flower Shop, gave that “something extra”. Alexis’s floral comb just made her feel like a princess, and Amanda’s bouquet was stylish accent to her fabulous look.
After the gorgeous family photos, we celebrated with a toast and it started to rain. But like two love birds in the rain, these two just shined in the mist with their love. We continued to shoot photos from several locations including a north shore private rooftop, the convention center, and we ended on a rooftop garage at the The Rivers Casino.
To finish the shoot in style, they had a new mustang to add to their home city background. Supplied by A Pittsburgh Plumber, the car was an amazing and exciting accessory.
Despite the ongoing rain, these two were up for anything together. Even joking around that they were going to get Taco Bell after the shoot. They were just so much fun to work with. Watching them with one another was magical. I found myself thinking about how Brandon must of looked at Amanda for the first time, all those years ago, and what he might of thought. Perhaps he saw a glimpse of a possible future, perhaps God liked that glimpse too.

So today I am going to be real with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am not perfect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes I can be too loud. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes I talk too much. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes I cry too often. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am definitely not my ideal weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you asked me if I would take the salad over the bowl of pasta, I would say both. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am not the smartest at Math, or remembering what year something happened. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm the worst at remembering Birthdays. I impulse buy way too much. And I ,often, struggle with anxiety and pressure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I, too often, let my laundry get backed up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You know what? It's okay not to be perfect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I dont have to have my life together all the time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am human, and so are you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I dont want to strive for perfection. I just want to strive to be a better me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Perfection isn't a part of life, and half of that is learning to ignore that little whisper in our heads saying you arent good enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes, our minds can be our own worst enemies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So today, shut that little voice down and embrace your flaws. They are a part of what makes you… well you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #embraceyourflaws #mmmpizza #beautifuljustlikethis #iamnotperfect ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
