Hitched: Anna + Max // Pittsburgh, PA

There are some couples in this world that no matter how cute they act, you can’t ever really get sick of them. Meet Anna and Max! For as long as I’ve known these two, they’ve been able to get away with all the ridiculous behaviors of “cute couples” and make it either hysterical to watch, or enjoyable to be a part of. Things like: baby voices, pet names, Public Displays of Affection, etc. Anna and Max are always a joy to be around, and if you were to ask anyone that has seen these two, they’ll agree! No one ever feels left out or excluded when they’re in their presence, in fact, Anna and Max’s love is one that most hope to fine some day.

Anna, Max and I all met at a place that’s near and dear to our hearts, Deer Valley. Deer Valley is a YMCA Summer Camp tucked away in the foothills of Central Pennsylvania. Anna and I have been going their since we were teenagers, and quite a few summers ago, Anna brought her beloved “Beefy” (aka Max). He’s got a heart of gold, and all of us fell in love with him. It has been history ever since. The two are inseperable and rightfully so! They are the couple that just goes together. Like peanut butter & jelly, like doughnuts & coffee, like spaghetti & meatballs, like tea & crumpets! They just fit.

Their day was beautiful. Pittsburgh in the middle of December, however cold it may be, is always the pinnacle of the holiday season in my mind and their wedding reflected that! I was so thankful to be a part of it, and to have Ashley alongside with me to show her my hometown. Anna and Max, we love you both dearly and can’t thank you enough for the wonderful time we spent with you! Hope you all enjoy.

Ashley’s shots!How Ashley manages to get such good detail shots amazes me. The student is outshooting the teacher!!!

All the Veteran Deer Valley Staffers!Okay, who’s the wise guy who brought the GLOW STICKS?!?!
