After performing a few ceremonies that's the Science Center I realized what a unique and exciting venue this truly is.
Our studio photographed a number of jobs at The Carnegie Science Center and our staff and our customers were very pleased with the whole aspect of the beautiful atmosphere. There are a number of extensive spaces in The Science Center including The Riverside Lawn, The Cafe Terrace, The Riverview Cafe and of course the spacious main lobby. The spectacular views of the rivers, the city of Pittsburgh and Mt. Washington all make for a stunning viewpoint and great environment. The first-rate dinners and surroundings all made for a lively and well remembered day. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
