Kyshia and Jeremy’s Grand Concourse Wedding:
Followers of this website might recognize Kyshia and Jeremy from their engagement portraits that we did in Scottsdale, AZ. It was a terrific session in one of my favorite places – the Valley Ho, so I was excited for their wedding at one of the loveliest venues in Pittsburgh, The Grand Concourse.
Kyshia and Jeremy are smart, kind, and hard-working folks. Being surrounded by family and friends as they celebrated their wedding was very important to them. Just about everybody traveled from out of town to be there with them, so you know that the feeling is mutual. Joining me was my friend and former colleague from our newspaper days, James Knox. We had a lot of fun, and James always humors me by wearing a bow tie (like me) when we have the chance to work together.
Here are some of my favorite photos from their day:
Kyshia and Jeremy got ready at the Sheraton Station Square:

The first look was on the walkway to the docks at Station Square. Jeremy removes his shades before Kyshia walks up to greet him:
There’s a nice view of the city skyline from the walkway. They were so happy and excited for their wedding:
Jeremy’s brother drove us over to Point State Park for some portraits before the wedding ceremony. It was a beautiful day, so the park was filled with visitors:

Jeremy smiles as Kyshia wipes away a tear while they exchange vows:
I love the view from the steps above the landing. The stained glass windows fill the room with golden light:
After the ceremony, we went out to the Smithfield Street Bridge for some photos. The high clouds and setting sun had a lovely soft but directional quality:
Kyshia looked fantastic with her veil blowing in the gentle breeze from the Monongahela River:
The couple had their first dance as their bridal party stood around them. Nate Da Phat Barber did a great job DJ’ing the wedding. I always enjoy working with him:
Teamwork: Kyshia holds a plate to catch the piece of cake as Jeremy cuts:
Let the dancing begin!
Kyshia and her little sister dance together. The fans were a nice touch, because it was HOT!
Over by the donut robot (yes, it’s a real thing and it’s amazing!) Jeremy played a tabletop game of basketball:
Such a happy couple 🙂
