Glamorous Philadelphia Wedding

Jessica and Mike’s glamorous philadelphia wedding went off without a hitch. We began portraits and getting ready photographs at the Penn’s Landing Hilton hotel then made our way to Penn’s Landing for a special first look. Everyone was thrilled to be able to share in Jessica and Mike’s first look especially there adorable daughter Hadleigh. Having a first look on your wedding day allows for numerous portrait locations. We next explored the Harbor Pop up park and even were able to snag some cotton candy. Right before Mayor Nutter married Jessica and Mike we took photographs at the pier. The pier is a gorgeous location for portraits. After the ceremony it was all dancing and singing to Bachelor Boys Band, who kept the party going on all night long. Congratulations Jessica and Michael!!

Bethany S. - What a lovely and romantic wedding in Philadelphia! I LOVE the portrait of the bride & groom on the spiral staircase! So cool. And all her pretty little details? So sweet!

Amy S - Great detail shots! And that night shot in the hammock is a show stopper! You rocked this Philadelphia wedding. Penns Landing made for a great location for a first look. Loved this bride and groom’s unique details and signs. So precious they had their daughter be such a big part! Great work!

Andrea - This wedding looks like it belongs on Style Me Pretty! Glamorous describes this Philadelphia wedding perfectly! Amazing job, Ashlee

Cassie Xie - OMG! Is that a DIY ring box? Those balloons are my FAVORITE. Also gold sequins are my FAVORITE. SO many favorites in one wedding! What a beautiful series of photos, you did such a wonderful job capturing all the intimate details and loving moments of this sweet family’s marriage!

Parker - Your detail shots and your portraits. Wow. No words. You’re an amazing Philadelphia wedding photographer!

Daniel - What beautiful photographs to highlight what looked to be such beautiful Philadelphia wedding! Those photos at Penns Landing were absolutely gorgeous!

Lori Foxworth - Such beautiful wedding photography! I love the first look at Penn’s landing and your detail shots are always stunning. Beautiful work as always!

Romantic New Jersey Wedding

This romantic New Jersey Wedding was filled with so much love, laughter and bliss I could not wait to share it! Katie’s vision for a dreamy and romantic wedding was executed perfectly with Floral Designs from the Flower Shop of Pennington. I loved all of the small touches Katie put together for her wedding day, especially the chalk board signs that each bridesmaid held of how they knew Katie. The personal touches to a wedding day are always my favorite!

One of my favorite things after a gorgeous wedding day is to hear from my stunning brides!!

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?
– Irma’s Bridal was where my older sister bought her dress (which I loved) so I knew I was in good hands.  I tried on about 6-7 dresses with my mom and narrowed it to two.  I later came back with my sister, cousin, future mother-in-law and mom and narrowed it down to the dress I wore!  It had everything a touch of fashion, sparkle and tradition.
What was your favorite part of the day?
The speeches!!  I could not ask for a funnier best man speech, more heartfelt matron of honor toast and loving father of the bride speech.  These people are so important to us and each of them blew us away with their words.
Most memorable part of the day?
Our first dance!  We wanted to make it memorable…and we think we did just that.  We knew we wanted to dance to something classic (and why not Jersey too!) with the Four Seasons “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”  I don’t think we anticipated the dress to be so long nor the floor to be as slippery.  Overall I think we did a pretty good job, I was just happy Andrew didn’t drop me on the dips!
What was your favorite detail of the day?
The ring bearers and flower girl walking down the aisle with the signs “Here Comes the Bride.”  We were so impressed they made it down the aisle, although it took some coaxing and plenty of fruit snacks!  I love them all to pieces and were so happy they were part of the day.

Are you engaged and looking for a photographer for your wedding?  I’d love to chat about if we might be a good match!  Send me a message and we’ll get in touch!

Andrea - These beautiful wedding photographs are the picture of elegance! What a beautiful real new jersey wedding!

Jill - What a gorgeous wedding! You do amazing work. I love the brides dress and the shot of the happy couple from behind. Thanks for sharing!

Chelsea Anderson - So beautiful! I love the little details, and your ceremony shots are seriously amazing! It’s hard to get great shots for indoor locations, especially because there tends to be a lot of rules in churches and sanctuaries – such a beautiful job and so appropriately titled <3 This should get published!!

Katell - Beautiful! I especially love the flower shots!

Beverly & Mike | Jackson Hole Wyoming

I am now pleased to announce that I will be accepting destination weddings. One of my favorite things is to travel to new places and photograph people madly in love. Nestled in the mountains of the beautiful Jackson Hole Wyoming was the perfect rustic barn. The Moulton Barn with the Teton mountains in the background is one of Jackson Holes greatest treasures. This setting was perfect for Beverly and Mike’s wedding celebrations! Being able to see Beverly and Mike share there love for each other  in front of these beautiful mountains was truly breathtaking. One of my favorite things about destination weddings is that they allow the couple to create a magical experience for their closest friends and family sharing what they adore most and spending  time with everyone involved. Jackson Hole in the summertime is truly one of the most gorgeous places you could possibly dream up, and from jaw-dropping views of the Grand Teton mountains to the forests with trees and wildlife, it truly does not get any better than this.

Whimsical Garden Engagement

Stephanie and Matt’s whimsical garden engagement story!!

Matt and I grew up going to the same church but never really got to know each other until we were in high school. We both attended the same school and went to senior prom together. Soon after that we began dating and dated long distance while I was away at college and have been together ever since…which as of last Friday is 6 years! We got engaged back in September when Matt had arranged for one of my best friends to ask me to go to Longwood Gardens with her. We spent the day there and towards the end there was one more spot that she wanted to go and take some pictures. When we were near the waterfall she went ahead to take some more pictures while I spent some time looking around. When I went to find her she was nowhere to be found so I kept walking along a path and thought it was really bizarre that she wasn’t there. I kept walking and went to turn a corner and found Matt standing there (I thought he was still at work after exchanging texts a few minutes earlier). I was in complete shock! I knew once I saw him what was happening but was so surprised!!!! He got down on one knee and the rest is history. They both did a great job of planning the day and it was better than I could have imagined!

Fine Art Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to share my new journey into being a fine art wedding photographer. I have always loved the colors, texture and the way film captures light. I truly adore film and am thrilled to be able to incorporate this into my wedding photography. My love for photography started long ago and began with film. Shooting film is something I am hoping to offer to my clients soon too! Both film and digital shooting have a place in photography and it really gives you the best of both worlds.

This romantic bridal inspiration started with the most amazing wedding gown ( blush pink Monique Lhuillier ). I photographed this session with my mamiya645 and it was processed by THEFINDLAB. We knew after seeing this gown that the shoot would be based around flowers, pinks and a romantic floral crown. My absolute favorite venue is Appleford Estate located in Villanova, PA. Appleford is a magical garden filled with roses, peonies and so much more, perfect for a bride to be looking for a fairytale outdoor whimsical wedding. I hope this styled shoot appeals to many brides looking for a natural look for there wedding day filled with slight touches of pinks. Always remember to be yourself on your wedding day so everyone can see you glowing. Working with amazing vendors was the icing to this shoot and could not have been completed with out everyone involved.
