Hi- I'm Anne.



And I'm pretty damn lucky to do something that I love.


I love being surrounded by flowers and pretty things like diamond rings.

I love being with people on the happiest day of their life.

I love taking two people who may be just a touch shy and showing them how incredible they are.

I love being able to collaborate with an incredible collective of industry professionals... from planners, to florists, designers and illustrators, seamstresses and bakers- Pittsburgh is pretty amazing.

I love that I get to work in a city that has brought so many people together and allowed others to discover themselves.

And I want to share my love of all of these things with YOU!

I don't believe that any detail is worth forgetting, and I believe every moment is worth remembering.


I'm the creative leader of Anne Troxel Photography, your number one hype girl, professional dress fluffer, and lover of the Pittsburgh Cookie Table.


I want to capture your essence. People are often nervous when you begin to photograph them, but I have no expectations for you- aside for you to simply be your authentic self! I want to capture your silly, your tender, your sweet, your love. I’ll guide you and your loved one to interact in natural, timeless ways to create art that will have the honor of living in your home and being a part of your family for generations to come. I don't create for the now- I create for the forever.


During your wedding day, I'm going to be your one-woman hype team. We're going to laugh a lot. I'm going to let out nonsensical sounds of glee when I look at the back of my camera and see how radiant you are- I might even sing a happy tune about it! You deserve to have a stress-free wedding day with an expert guiding you through the whole experience, from what to wear for your engagement session, how to bustle your dress for the reception, and even how to grab a quick snack from cocktail hour without anyone noticing. Your wedding is a once-in-a-life time event, there are no redos. I'll create you a perfect timeline to capture all the itty-bitty details and big moments alike. 


I started my photography journey working as a freelance retoucher for the fashion company ModCloth, where I quickly climbed my way (forced the door open?) to becoming their full-time photographer, overseeing a little team of freelancers breathing life to vintage-inspired products to make them jump off of the webpage into homes across the United States. From there, I started working with both bigger national companies and smaller, female owned-buisnesses... and while I loved the high intensity commercial world, I felt like I needed to do something more- something that brought joy to the day-to-day moments we live in, and brought smiles to the faces of people surrounded by joy. Taking the ever detail-specific, timeline-driven commercial mindset and pairing it with the wedding world has let me mix an editorial eye into the emotionally driven moments of a wedding day, marrying them into a gallery that preserves every detail and creates dynamic emotions, rather than just capturing things as "they happen."


When I'm not capturing gorgeous weddings or on set with my amazing clients you can find me digging in my flower garden, starting "just one more" DIY project in our 1960s home, or peddling foster kittens to anyone who will listen to the cause. I believe the perfect day off involves a trip to a French Bakery (La Gourmendine), flower picking (Simmons Farm- it's a drive but worth it), your favorite movie (What's Up Doc? 1972, Barbra Stesiand & Ryan o'Neal), and cuddles with your furry friends (two cats, Chandler and Samson.)



Love Notes

Lauren & Andrew

“"Anne was so wonderful to work with! We loved how she fully walked us through what the day could look like and things to look out for in our meetings before the day - she really left us feeling very secure in knowing that we would be getting the shots we wanted.  Anne and her lovely second shooter, Mariah, were so great with not only the smallest details and beautifully crafted artistic shots, but captured every moment so beautifully!  The images we got back were beyond what we could've imagined.”
