A University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown E-Shoot with Austin and Kaija

The snow may have disappeared, but this E-Shoot with Austin and Kaija at the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown campus in Johnstown, PA had all the warm and fuzzy feels! From the moment Kaija contacted me about photographing her wedding, I could tell she was so in love with Austin and couldn’t wait to begin documenting their celebration.

Austin and Kaija’s love story begins, on the job, lol! They met while working together at a hospital, however they didn’t truly get to know each other until he was deployed to Afghanistan a few months after they met. Their relationship blossomed during the 11 months he was away, communicating through phone calls and Facetime (thank you modern technology!). I know from experience that communication is key to a successful relationship. So Austin and Kaija, you are already off to a great start!

Although the couple dreams of one day traveling to Ireland, they have just returned from cruise to the Caribbean! I am so jealous of them and have loved seeing all of their pictures and updates on Facebook. In case any of you were wondering how you should celebrate your engagement…like Austin and Kaija do!!!

I had so much fun spending time with this couple during their E-shoot! They were just completely adorable and have such fun personalities. Being open and honest about what they wanted, liked, disliked, and were willing to try, kept the session moving quickly and feeling fresh. It was perfect!

Austin and Kaija, I hope that you enjoy your preview from your E-Shoot. I am so excited about your wedding day and looking forward to celebrating with you both. After listening to all of your wedding plans, I know that it is going to be gorgeous and unforgettable. Enjoy these next few month of planning and excitement!
