I'm Hannah Bryerton, wedding & portrait photographer based in New York State. I am a lover of details and story telling- both visually & through writing. Here you will find glimpses of my life as a photographer, wife, dog-lover & Chick fil-A obsessed creative!
Ryan Barber and Hannah Hager held the most stunning wedding that Hartwood Acres Mansion in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has EVER seen! (Ok, I’m totally making assumptions here and truly have no clue how valid that statement is, but if I had to guess, I’d say it’s probably pretty darn close to the truth!) As soon as I posted previews of this amazing day on Instagram, my messages were BLOWING up with people asking questions about it. Which leads me to believe this might be one of my most highly anticipated blog posts to date! (EEEK!)
I knew from the initial inquiry that this wedding was going to be one for the books! Natasha Learn from Hello Productions plans the MOST spectacular events and, as you can see, this one was no exception! I’d love to babble on and on about it, but these pictures speak for themselves (and that’s what y’all are here for anyway right?!)
Hannah & Ryan- I am still SO stinkin’ honored that you entrusted me with the privelege of capturing this INCREDIBLE day! Scrolling through your images leaves me feeling nothing but grateful for this job, the people I meet, and amazing memories I get to document. I am so thankful that life crossed our paths and that y’all so graciously accepted Jesse and I as your own on the wedding day. (Mostly Jesse, though… the forever crowd favorite) 😉 Wishing you nothing but the sweetest things life has to offer. You two are one of a kind and the world is a better place with your love in it! XOXO
The outdoor terrace of the Penthouse Suite at the Renaissance in Pittsburgh is e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g, y’all. My heart was swooning all morning at these views.
Pictured above…. Ryan bought Hannah the MOST thoughtful wedding gift: a gold bar necklace with the coordinates of their wedding venue on it. It matched the tie clip that he wore on their day PERFECTLY!
Brace yourselves for the most adorable groom reaction of 2019. I just love Ryan’s heart for his beautiful bride. (Naturally, I was tearing up behind my camera the entire time, right there with him)
After the ceremony, the cocktail hour began for all the guests. Hannah & Ryan snuck away to share their personal, handwritten vows to each other. Being a photographer is the BEST because you get a front row seat to every happy tear and I LOVED that they shared these sweet moments together. It added the most unique touch to their day!
The BIGGEST thank you goes out to allllll of the wedding industry magicians who made this once-in-a-lifetime-day possible! It was an HONOR working beside all of you to document Hannah & Ryan’s wedding!
