Dom and Dana were married at Duquesne University Chapel in Pittsburgh and their reception was at the Shadow Lakes Club in Aliquippa. I met them through Maura Mendicino – whose Senior Photos I shot a few years ago. If I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it now – I love referrals. I see it as such a compliment that someone loved their photos so much that they confidently recommend me to their friends and families. So Maura, thank you, dear – you’re wonderful!

Dominick, Dana, and both their families are the kind of people who bring you right in and make you feel so welcome. I greatly appreciate that quality. On a personal note – my Dad, who I dearly love, was in the hospital in Wisconsin on their wedding day. Since it wasn’t possible for me to be with him or my family, it was so nice to be around such warm and caring people. Dana’s dance with her father was so sweet and moving that it brought me to tears. I couldn’t help but think of my dad – who was much too far away – and how special he is to me. I’m happy to say he went home the very next day and he’s doing just fine now!

Dom and Dana’s wedding day was extremely warm, but both they and their wedding party stuck it out and we got some gorgeous photos! Here’s a few of my favorites –
