The best view of Pittsburgh is from way up high. That’s why this rooftop engagement session from Jeannine Bonadio Photography is such a stunner. Julie and Chad took to a downtown parking garage to capture the skyline, a glowing sunset, and their love. After that, they ventured to lower ground, seeking out some of the urban green space and, of course, a bridge or two. While these images are totally classic, I’m absolutely head over heels in love with Julie’s dress. The bright red looks dazzling on her and the structured skirt, statement necklace, and beaded green shoes had a surprising pop of pizzazz. Keep your eyes peeled for Julie and Chad’s dog, Cannoli, who sports a matching floral collar. If the engagement photos are any indication of how stylish Julie and Chad’s fall wedding was, we’re all in for a doozey.
From the photographer…
Describe the engagement session.
Julie’s chic, bold style made this urban rooftop session really shine. They included their pup, Cannoli, which is always a showstopper in my book!
What made the engagement shoot unique?
I think their session was unique because it is so classic – sunset with a city skyline, urban brick and bridges, all the things I love about shooting downtown! I love neutral tones and flowing dresses but it was so refreshing to have vibrant color and structure to her dress, plus the little peeks of glam with her shoes and necklace too. I loved how Julie’s dress popped and really showed off her personal style. It is awesome when clients really enjoy what they have on AND feel like themselves. They had a second outfit and didn’t even use it because they loved what that had on. It makes a huge difference in the feel of your photos when you’re feeling confident!
