Supporting the Community through Photography

We’ve had a busy fall season with event photography. We’ve had the honor to photograph two film festivals, the 2nd Annual Nine Mile Bike Tour & Block Party, the Pittsburgh Glass Center Art on Fire annual auction, Bridgeway Capital brand photography, and Swissvale Fall Family Mini-Sessions.

While we can’t pick a favorite, and we’ll soon be sharing photos from these events with you, we love working with community-focused organizations. Here are a few of our fall community events.

2nd Annual Nine Mile Bike Tour & Block Party

We recently had the opportunity to sponsor the 2nd Annual Nine Mile Bike Tour & Block Party. This is a fundraiser for Nine Mile Run Wastershed Association. Over 100 cyclists rode through the East End, touring the sites where the NMRWA has done work to aid in cleaning and maintaining the watershed. The cyclists and spectators were able to learn about the work that NMRWA does throughout the community. It’s incredible to see the impact this group has had in our region!

We jumped at the chance to photograph this event because we hold Frick Park near and dear to our hearts. Jeanie and Porter love the dog park. Without NMRWA, the park would not be anything like you see today. Thanks to NMRWA, this is a safe space for both dogs and humans to play. We’re thrilled to be able to support this fantastic organization and know that we’re helping our community continue to flourish.

You can see our event recap here on the blog.

Bridgeway Capital

Bridgeway Capital works with startup entrepreneurs, small businesses, and non-profits to pursue growth opportunities. Their network of investors and partners sparks Western Pennsylvania commercial and non-profit entities, allowing them to grow more than they would have on their own.

We had the great pleasure of once again taking environmental portraits of their clients. Environmental portraits accomplish a few things. You can see these budding entrepreneurs in action, working in their actual business environment to tell a story of their passions and business. It also shows them in their real-life surroundings to see how they interact with others in their business. It’s a great way to showcase someone’s personality and unique business culture.

We love knowing that we’re supporting small businesses in a meaningful way. The photos we took are able to be used on their website, social media marketing, and business material collateral. It allows their business to present a professional image and help them get even further along in their work.

Here is a selection of client photos we took last year for Bridgeway Capital.

Swissvale Fall Family Photos

We live and work in Swissvale, PA, and we love supporting our community in any way we can (if you couldn’t tell!) We’re always looking for ways to assist in improving communication between residents and local officials, attracting people to move and open a business here, and generally uplifting the image of Swissvale throughout the region.

New families are essential to the growth of our community. As a way to give back to the neighborhood that supports us so generously, we offered mini-family photo sessions to residents in our community. Everyone, regardless of their background, should be able to have memories of their family interacting together. We were happy to create inspiring images that families will always love.

We hope to offer these sessions again!
