Krystle & GavinPittsburgh Elopement Photographer

I had just moved to Pittsburgh, and didn’t have a lot of good friends. When I met Krystle we weren’t instant friends. Probably more instant enemies when she tried out for the basketball team. I was new in school so I already was the outcast but Krystle was invited by a friend who ditched her the moment tryouts started. So we were partnered. Long story short, we never talked or wanted to after that day. UNTIL we were lucky enough to have a class together which just so happened to be a photography class, and that is when we officially hit it off. When we hung out after school for the first time we hit up a Goodwill together followed by coffee and that is when Krystle became one of my closest friends. We are total goofballs together, and I am so lucky to have her in my life!

I remember the first time we met Gavin very well. We were having a few beers down the street from where I lived after work one day. I could see Gavin eying Krystle up, so I decided to go to the bathroom because he looked like he was gathering the courage to talk to her. When I got back she told me he got her phone number! I had a feeling from the beginning that there was something different about Gavin. Here we are, one child, one on the way, and their beautiful vows are what you can view below. It was a cold, dreary December day in Pittsburgh. But their love shines, and lit up my photographs. I hope you enjoy.
