It’s not every day that you get to celebrate an engagement and a housewarming at the same time, but Catherine and Jamie recently gave me that privilege! This duo is one of our 2021 couples, and I was so excited to reconnect with them and capture their love story in their brand-new home. A pair this picture-perfect is certainly worth a trip, and I’m so happy to share some of their Pittsburgh engagement photos with you.
From Playing Darts to Winning Hearts
Catherine reconnected with Jamie, her brother’s friend, at a bar following a family reunion. Although she had known him for quite a while, this marked the first night that the pair really had a chance to interact. Their easy conversation helped the night go on for much later than either had expected. They laughed and talked, and Jamie played darts with his friends while Catherine cheered him on. When they finally headed home for the night, Catherine picked up a dart and casually threw it at the board. She got a perfect bulls-eye. Needless to say, this was definitely a sign.
In August, Catherine and Jamie went on their first official date. Catherine recalls Jamie being the “perfect gentleman” as she described a night that was free of any awkward silences or uncomfortable moments. This flawless date became their anniversary and on their two-year celebration, Jamie proposed!
The pair had just finished eating lobster tacos in the comfort of their brand-new home together. As Catherine finished up her champagne, she noticed Jamie acting a little weird. He excused himself to go to the bathroom and came back with quite the surprise: a ring!
The In-Home Pittsburgh Engagement Photos
Is there anything more intimate or romantic than an at-home proposal following a home-cooked meal? It felt only natural that we would return to the site of Jamie’s big question for the photo session. While I’m always partial to Erie, I had to admit that their Pittsburgh engagement photos were stunning. I felt so honored to be welcome into not only their celebration but their new home! I always love to customize my shoots to the unique lives of my clients, and I’d argue that no space is more personalized than your own home.
