Amazing Candid Wedding Photos

Are they luck or skill? — those fabulous wedding candids that draw you back into the moment heart and soul. You know the ones–they are the images that are so perfect they must have been posed by the photographer. Nope. Not at an Ovation Images wedding. There is so much skill behind truly amazing wedding candids that it is tempting to simplify and just call it “a lucky shot.” Until you see hundreds of them. Nobody has that much luck.

The two Ovation Images photographers who are with you on your wedding day have worked together on hundreds of weddings. They bring a package of photography experience and wedding teamwork to your wedding that is unmatched by any other studio. The result?

The Best Date For Your Wedding–It’s all about The Date!

Pittsburgh Engagement Photographer

You’re engaged! Probably one of the first things you will think about when you get engaged is when? When will we get married? Stop right now and take a breath!  The date you select drives every other decision you will make and choice you will have about your wedding—so choose wisely! The availability of your church and reception venue are the most obvious date issues. But what about the B word—Budget?  The date you choose will make a big difference to the final cost of your wedding.

Every wedding vendor we know has different rates for the same service depending on the date. Non-Saturday weddings cost less. Winter weddings cost less. This can be a huge factor for one big part of your wedding cost—your reception venue. Ask them about these discounts. Then explore the calendar carefully for opportunities. For example, in some years, at some venues, Memorial Day weekend is still considered “winter” and you may find exceptional deals available to you on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Yes, look to your heart to set your date! But don’t forget the B-word!

Carly and John at St. Mary Of The Mount & Sheraton Station Square

Carly and John had a very special day with family and friends for their wedding at St., Mary Of The Mount (Mount Washington, Pittsburgh) and the Sheraton Station Square. The bride was stunning, and the bridal party was….a partee! We stopped in between the ceremony and reception at the newly redone overlook in front of Monterey Bay on Grandview Avenue. Since night falls early at this time of year, we also had time for some very intimate moments with the lights of Pittsburgh reflecting on the river in the background. Pittsburgh’s most-trusted and most-experienced wedding photographers at Ovation Images were on hand…

Brittany and Andrew’s St. Paul Wedding & Grand Concourse Reception

Brittany and Andrew had a marvelous wedding day, with a first look in front of Phipps Conservatory, followed by their wedding at St. Paul Cathedral, and capping the night off with a brilliant party at Grand Concourse in Station Square. Pittsburgh’s generally fussy October weather was simply beautiful in honor of their big day! Ovation Images wedding photographers Shawn Rodgers and Don Merz were on hand all day to make sure that Brittany and Andrews’s special memories got the very best treatment!

Romance Wedding Photographer Ovation Images. What do you want out of your wedding photography? Elegance? Candid moments? Emotion? Ovation Images photographers, each with hundreds of weddings worth of experience, come to your wedding looking for all that….and finding the Romance.

Ovation Images Captures The Moment and The Romance!

Ovation Images Captures The Moment and The Romance!

Believe it or not….your wedding day can be  a very mechanical day. The vows are said at 2:20PM and the cake is cut at 5:45PM. The feeling you might get from the schedule as it is happening is “let’s get this over with.” Yes, the mechanics and schedule have to be there. But the reason you pay a professional photographer big bucks is to see through that…and save you the memories that evoke the romance of your big day………Right?

Ovation Images For Romantic Wedding Photography

Ovation Images For Romantic Wedding Photography

Candid pictures are great! We love candids. But an entire wedding day depicted in candid photographs can, oddly enough, feel too real–too bare and almost detached. Where’s the romance?  Experienced wedding photography studios such as Ovation Images see both what it is and how it feels!  We see the moments and we feel the moment–and that feeling puts the romance in your wedding pictures.

The images in this blog post are from Amanda and Alan’s wedding, part of a set of over 600 candid and structured images that they received from Ovation Images. Yes, the moments are here–and so is the romance! That is what we do and that is why we are Pittsburgh’s Most Trusted Wedding Photographers Since 2001. These images show why you should not settle for “average”  wedding photography. Never lose the romance!
