Finding in LOVE with BRUSTER’s ice cream!

Falling in Love with Brusters Ice Cream

A toast to Hopewell Brusters! Thank you for your hospitality!

 

 

  Thank you Hopewell Brusters!

On a hot and humid day in Hopewell, Katie and Chad along with their wedding party visited the Hopewell Bruster’s on Broadhead Rd. across from the Hopewell Shopping Center. With welcome arms Brenda, Mario, and staff at Brusters served the hungry Bridal Party a variety of flavors and the 25 year anniversary, “Black Cherry Chocolate Chunk” definitely was a hit!

If you are in the Hopewell area and enjoy ice cream, stop by the Hopewell Brusters and get a picture in front of the now famous Hopewell Brusters.  {Maybe sneak a kiss from your sweetheart too!} :D

As the bride and groom enjoyed a ‘sweet’ kiss, photo bombing was a must! :D

Victory Family Church | Impartation | June 22, 2014

One of my favorite books by John Bevere and one that I recommend to everyone is “Bait of Satan”.

 “The man or woman who doesn’t forgive has forgotten the price that Christ paid for them on the Cross.” 
— John Bevere

Escape the enemy’s deadly trap! The Bait of Satan exposes one of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of the will of God-offense.

 

John Bevere (Breaking Intimidation: Say “No” Without Feeling Guilty. Be Secure Without the Approval of Man)

 

“True honor is an outflow from a heart that fears God.” 
— John Bevere (Honor’s Reward: The Essential Virtue for Receiving God’s Blessings)

 

“True humility is absolute obedience and dependence on God. It puts Him first, others second, and ourselves third in all things.” 
— John Bevere (Relentless: The Power You Need to Never Give Up)

Wedding Engagement Portrait Session The Point Pittsburgh

The night was perfect with the sun setting behind the Point in Pittsburgh. I love photographing couples and especially engagement portraits. To add a different look to an engagement session, I utilize a few clips of video mingled in with the still images to produce a hybrid engagement portrait show.  Photography is about story telling and why not utilize the power of both video and still photography to create a memorable wedding engagement portrait session?

 

“Don’t just take pictures, capture memories!”

Kodak Commercial Pictures Live Forever

Tremendous commercial emphasizing the importance of pictures.  One of my favorite commercials of all time!  Why?  Because it emphasizes the value and art of story telling through photography and just as important it shows the need to print your images.  Too often folks take pictures but they never print them or do anything with them other than post them to instagram, facebook, or other social media site.

 

“The pictures are talking . . . they are saying keep me, protect me, share me and I will live forever.”  I can hear them!

Weber Insurance Car Cruise at Victory Family Church in Cranberry Twp

Many years ago I owned a 1968 white corvette convertible with a 427, 390 HP, and ’4 on the floor’.  I doubt I will ever forget that car and for many reasons.  I was a teenager with a few thousand dollars to spend and left the house looking for a 1967 corvette with the tear drop back and unique look.  However, I quickly found out that the $3k I had to spend wouldn’t buy a 1967 corvette (at least not one that ran).  This was long before the internet and all of the options for buying cars of today existed.  However, I found a white 68 corvette that I purchased and immediately enjoyed.  A few of us ‘guys’ had various muscle cars.  A buddy had a SS and another a camera, while a third had a very nice Cadillac. We would meet at the various locations in the area to show off our ‘ride’ and there was something about driving slow to show off the car. I bought many books on corvettes learning about their styles and unique look.  Over the years I have not kept up with the newer corvettes but my love for ‘old’ cars never died.   The Shelby Mustang, SS, Z28, and many other muscle cars with their unique look and class.

Car Cruise Pittsburgh Area

There is nothing like visiting a car cruise knowing you have the opportunity to photograph cars and trucks from various eras.  There was a beautiful 1934 Ford and I immediately commented to the owner. “That is the year my dad was born.”  Grills, grills, and more grills.  No not the kind you cook on but the beautiful grills on older vehicles.  I am not sure what happened over the years but most grills produced today are ‘boring’.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some cars that have a unique look to its front (like the Mini Cooper S) but the grills on some of the older cars had ‘class’.  No doubt at the time, the designers looked at the grills as a symbol and were not concerned with wind resistance (since they seemed to have lots of it) or energy conservation (since they didn’t) and focused on style.

Amazing Car Grills

I am not a car enthusiast in the true sense of the word but an artist who looks at cars, trucks, etc for the aesthetic value.  Thus, my opinion of these vehicles is based solely on aesthetics only.  ps I love the emblems on many of the

First Car Cruise Pittsburgh area of the year

This is my first Car Cruise of the year and if its like previous years, I will not attend too many. (This is wedding and portrait season and car cruises are on the same days of weddings usually.)  However, there are future car cruises on my calendar with two at Victory Family Church.

Senior Portrait Sunset

Sunset over the Ohio River

Would you like to introduce a wow factor to your high school senior portrait? We offer a portrait session that will make you say WOW! – I love still photography and portraits but why not have a video or ‘advertisement’ of YOU? A few video clips taken during the portrait session and added to your portrait show to create memories that lasts for generations. You can show the video at the high school senior’s graduation party, send a copy to grandma and let her show off her grandchild to other’s in her circle of friends, or just sit and enjoy the show !

The sun set was magnificent setting over the Ohio River with the clouds dancing in the sky.  Both created a beautiful High School Senior Memory for sharing and admiring.

At the point | Pittsburgh PA

At the point in Pittsburgh, PA

At the point in Pittsburgh, PA

For a variety of reasons, it has been a few years since I photographed at the point and when the weather was perfect for an engagement session to end At the Point in Pittsburgh, I jumped on the opportunity. As we walked across the area before the underpass, I noticed the sun setting behind the fountain creating amazing shadows and a beautiful glow. The positioning of the sun made for a perfect opportunity to silhouette the couple.

God has given me the opportunity to travel to many states and various parts of the world and each time I walk around Pittsburgh, I always find new and creative areas to photograph, document life, and enjoy.  If you haven’t been to the Point in Pittsburgh lately, please take the time to visit it.  I suggest visiting at sunset to enjoy not only the sunset over Mount Washington and along the river but turn around looking to the east and see the twilight behind the city.

I have not finished reading their newest book but Tony Dungy’s devotional is excellent and I highly recommend the book. Both sports enthusiast and non will gain valuable lessons from The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge.

From the publisher

What does it take to build a marriage that will last? Tony and Lauren Dungy have together known the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. They fell in love, built a family, and made sports history when Tony became the first African American head coach to win the Super Bowl. Yet they’ve also gone through difficult, relationship-testing setbacks, including job loss and devastating personal tragedy. In a culture where it seems harder and harder to make marriage last, what has kept the Dungys strong through it all? In Uncommon Marriage, Tony and Lauren share the secrets that hold them together, revealing what they’ve learned so far about being a good husband or wife; getting through times of loss, grief, or change; staying connected despite busy schedules; supporting each other’s dreams and goals; and helping each other grow spiritually. They offer encouragement and practical advice to equip your marriage to survive tough issues and flourish with joy, purpose, and partnership—in other words, to be a marriage that is truly uncommon.

 

Tony and Lauren Dungy are married over 30 years with nine children and both have many accolades but the ones that stuck with me is their love for Christ, their parents, each other, and family. May God continue to bless them abundantly in ways only He can do.

 

Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

From Death to Life
