Mellon Park Engagement

Shauni & Greg | Pittsburgh PA Mellon Park Engagement

The sound of an early morning alarm, two flights, and several hours later we were holding our breath and tiptoeing excitedly through the door of a house built over 100 years ago. We had just arrived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to surprise one of our favorite people in the world. As we slowly crept into the living room we were surrounded by family. A family that knew we were coming and had helped us keep this secret for months. They helped us plan and scheme so we could surprise Spencer’s sister, Shauni, for Christmas. A sister whom we hadn’t seen in almost two years. A sister we talked to almost every day. And on this day, a sister who cried when she saw us. Through tears and the biggest hugs, we were lovingly scolded for arriving unannounced.

Shauni had been asking us to visit the east coast for a while now. She wanted to show us her life in the city and all of her favorite spots. So the next few days were a whirlwind of family time, sightseeing around “The Burgh”, and one of our personal highlights of the trip… but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. 😉


Through tears and the biggest hugs, we were lovingly scolded for arriving unannounced.


We had always wanted to visit, but we wanted to make sure we could squeeze in as many things as possible into the one trip so we waited and we planned. And it just so happened that while we were planning our trip, Shauni’s boyfriend, Greg, proposed! So we had a wonderful trip full of celebrations of both Christmas and our sister’s engagement!

Of course, we knew we had to sneak in some photos of these two celebrating their engagement while we were visiting! So we did what every Santa Barbara wedding photographer with an engaged sister would do. We helped her choose a couple of dresses while being thousands of miles away under the guise that she might need them one day… And guys, they look STUNNING! We’re SO excited for you to see the photos below!

Shauni & Greg, we had an incredible trip to your side of the U.S. and we’re SO thankful we had the chance to celebrate Christmas and your engagement with family! Thank you so much for showing us around Pittsburgh and to some of your favorite spots! We can’t wait to visit again! We are absolutely obsessed with your Mellon Park engagement photos! And we hope you love them as much as we do, which is a lot!
