Christine Kane and Jamie Sapp were married in Pittsburgh

Christine Kane and Jamie Sapp were married in Pittsburgh, PA on October 11th and I have been looking forward to this wedding for a long time. Christine and I became friends while working together at QVC when she presented HP Computers. I was honored when they asked me to photograph their wedding. The first thing they prepared me for was the prominent role their beloved bulldog “Chumley” was going to play in the wedding. Chumley is a star in his own rights and I expected nothing less from Christine and Jamie.

But of course Chumley could not upstage the love and sentiment expressed by Christine and Jamie throughout the wedding ceremony.

We took advantage of the beautiful Pittsburgh Skyline and utilized many of Christine and Jamie’s favorite locations to create beautiful wedding photography.

One of my favorite things to experience as a wedding photographer is capturing your personal touches. Every Bride and Groom brings their own thoughts of love and sentiment into every ceremony and some take it to the next level. Christine and Jamie are both huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans. One of the Steelers traditions is the use of the “Terrible Towel” at football games. Well, Jamie and Christine each shared a surprise with me, that they were planning for the other. (See wedding photographers get the best seat in the house!)

Jamie’s plan worked brilliantly! He knew his Bride Christine was bound to shed a tear or two. He was ready and had his “Terrible Towel” poised and ready use. This of course caught Christine by surprise and brought a smile to Christine’s face.

But then . . .

Little did Jamie know that Christine had bought personalized “Terrible Towels” to greet them as they walked into the reception. How cool is it that the Bride and Groom were so in love and in-sync with each other that they pulled the same surprise on each other?

I find that magical and a great omen on the future success of their marriage.
