Today I am excited to share this fun, colourful Pittsburgh Engagement shoot at the incredible setting of Randyland.
Images were captured by Sandra Chile.
Sandra Chile, the eye behind the lens was born and raised in Chile, but now lives in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania (USA).
She is a passionate rabbit lover, a ferocious advocate for animal welfare, and a supporter of conscious living.
She is in love with taking pictures of fascinating individuals, whom like myself, are free spirited, wanna travel the world, like to laugh out loud, wanna eat without gaining weight and most of all, want to never be silent about things that matter.
She specialises in photographing FUN couples who like to do things a lil’ bit different, who treat their wedding day as a chance to celebrate their personalities, and who celebrate their personalities by embracing the spontaneity of life.
When you hire her, you will have a photographer who “gets you” like a friend would, someone who understands that you are passionate about living, and will capture this special day with the intensity and creativity that your soul deserves.
Sandra says of the shoot…
“Randyland is my favorite spot in the city of Pittsburgh. It is so artsy, so colorful!”
“Its owner (Randy) is a very warm and welcoming person.”
“He bought the house when it was almost falling down, but his determination and artful spirit have renewed not only the house but also the neighborhood in which is in, making it the hot spot for all the cool people.”
“Over the years, he had created many pieces of street art, in addition to 800 gardens, 50 vegetable gardens and 8 parks.”
“Doing all of this on a shoestring budget taught him how to recycle.”
“So when he bought the building, he thought well why not use the same ideas?
“He recycled paint, wood and things he found in the alley ways”
“So when he started applying these ideas into this building it eventually turned into a giant outdoors art gallery.”
“This is why when I met Don and Sarah, I immediately knew I wanted to take them there for pictures”
“I knew the colorful spirit of Randyland, would be a perfect match for these 2 lovebirds who after 10 years of relationship, are finally tying the knot tommorow, August 20th.”
“I am so happy to be their photographer, and to have found the perfect spot to make these memories for them.”
“I can’t wait until in 50 years, their whole family sits down with the box of old pictures, and they get to tell the grandkids all the stories behind these images.”
I hand over to beautiful Bride Sarah ….
How did you meet?
“We met through mutual friends at Don’s fraternity house while we were at Penn State.”
“Less than a year after meeting, we were dating seriously. On our 10-year anniversary, he proposed.”
Tell me a little about you guys as a couple.
“We are a bit of an colourful mix… Party Animals, Outgoing, Foodies, Animal lovers, Nerdy / Geeky, Silly / Funny, Laid back and Vegan.”
“We like to hang out at our place with our Greyhound, Beaker, and have friends over.”
“Although we haven’t been able to go to many places yet, we love to travel.”
“We play intramural volleyball on a few different teams with our friends.”
“Also, we are big on watching and sometimes attending Penn State football games and Pirate games.”
Thank you so much to Sandra for sharing this amazing Pittsburgh Engagement Shoot.
Randyland is the epitomy of fun, exciting and a place that will forever be etched in memory with its colour and originality, and is the perfect setting for a fun loving couple to make their own memories on the start of their journey into marriage.
Wishing Sarah and Don a wonderful Wedding Day tomorrow and all the very best for an awesome future together…
