Here’s to a Sweet Couple!

A Love Story Unfolds…

Kara & John:

Kara and John met online, after Kara responded to his first comment of “I love to be a regular at places too, I go to my favorite breakfast spots and sit and read the New York Times.” How could Kara not respond to someone who loved to read and be a regular at places? Their first date was at the Elbow Room in Shadyside, because it had just reopened, and John as a lifelong Pittsburgher had to show a non-Pittsburgher what a traditional and classic Pittsburgh restaurant the Elbow Room was.

They sat for several hours talking, and John impressed Kara with his knowledge about almost every topic possible: including knowledge of Pittsburgh’s history with urban planning. John just really enjoyed the fact that it was a really easy, fun conversation, and that they had similar backgrounds.

After that day, they didn’t spend much time apart. Over a shared love of baseball, food, cooking, and Pittsburgh itself, their relationship developed. Kara now has been to every important Italian restaurant in the city and John has now heard about every fiction book that is worth reading, in Kara’s opinion.

John took Kara away to Falling Water for an afternoon. They had been talking about Frank Lloyd Wright, and John’s interest in architecture, and Kara had never been. Kara kind of had an idea that the proposal might be happening, but after the whole house tour and the regular overlook of the house, Kara thought she had called it wrong and it wasn’t happening that day.

They kept walking through the woods and at another lookout that many people don’t know about, John and Kara talked about the beauty that is the house, and what kind of house they would one day have together. John said “well one day, we will have a house together, but right now I’m hungry.” Out of his pocket he pulled a Ruffles bag, and immediately Kara knew. The ring box was in the chip bag, and the rest is history.

IPD Included In 2011 Children’s Hospital Countrywide Photo Exhibit

We didn’t get to share this news earlier, so we are excited to post now: IPD’s photo of  a little boy visiting with a sweet therapy dog at Children’s Hospital last year was selected as one of the winning images for the 2011 National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI) Photo Exhibit. The exhibit went to Children’s Hospitals all around the country, as well as to the Rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building, Capitol Hill. All images were also used for NACHRI programs, publications, and on their website.

We were thrilled to be included, and honored to be a part of the ongoing work that Children’s Hospitals across the country are doing to help kids and their families heal. We’ve attached the congratulatory letter sent to Kevin Urda, Pittsburgh’s Children’s hospital volunteer coordinator, who submitted our image for the collection, as well the winning image!

IPD Wins 4 Blue Ribbons at Triangle Photography Association

It’s time to break out the BLUE news! We’re excited to share our most recent IPD success story with you all…

Pam submitted 4 entries to the Triangle Photography Association’s 2012 Winter Meeting Folio Competition held January 22-23 2012 in Pittsburgh, and came away with blue ribbons on every submission!

A little background on the competition…

Triangle Photography Association  is a professional association for photographers and an affiliate of Professional Photographers of America and Professional Photographers of Pennsylvania.

Part of the Winter Meeting is the Folio & Album Competition.

For the official rules, click here.

The top level of award at the folio competition is a blue ribbon; awards are based on lighting, composition, posing and variety.

Out of all the blue ribbon winners, each one of the judges then chooses a favorite as well as first, second, and third place in each of five categories (individual, group, wedding/event, digital, illustrative).

Pam received:

  • Four out of four blue ribbons

  • A judge’s choice award

  • First place in the group category

  • Third place in the individual category

Please feel free to browse all of the winning folio compilations in the gallery below.

We are thrilled and honored to have earned these awards, and we are also extremely grateful to each and every one of our fantastic high school senior ‘models’ who chose to have their senior session with us in 2011. You were all so much fun to work with, and taught us more about ourselves and our craft along the way.

To our competition seniors: your folios will be displayed in our studio for the rest of this quarter, and we’ll be in touch in the following weeks to schedule a time to photograph you with your folio and pick up a little thank-you gift from our studio.

Thank you all for sharing in our excitement and success!
