Bark in the Park- Delaware County SPCA

I am honored that I was chosen to photograph Bark in the Park for the Delaware County SPCA ( Rose Tree Park Media, PA). The Bark in the Park happens annually, but this was the first year the event through a 5k into the mix. It was truly a special day at the Bark in the Park & Fall Festival. Human and dog runners took the park by storm on a mission to save lives. The day followed with a fall festival including food trucks, a dj, contests and so many vendors. Thanks to all who participated in the first-ever 5K Run and stopped by to enjoy the festivities and give back for a good cause. Thanks to you, we raised a record nearly $100,000 to help save more lives AND processed 21 adoptions. The day could not of been more beautiful, weather included. I am so happy to have been apart of such a fantastic day be causes its all about the pups!!

Halloween-Queen

Tis the season for pumpkins, ghosts and all things Halloween inspired. I love Halloween and was inspired to do a dark magical Halloween-Queen bridal session. This session is a little less ghoulish and completely high glamour. I love the gold eyelashes we used for this session to add some bling. Not only did we have a gorgeous black tulle skirt from my favorite fashion designer AmericanBlossoms but it even included black wings. Bridal sessions are a great way to get to know your photographer and have some fun. If you are looking to do a bridal session and are daring enough to wear black you are in for a real treat. I hope you enjoy this Halloween inspiration and feel inspired!!

A love affair

Tiffany and Gregory’s wedding day was truly a love affair filled with so many gorgeous details, and so much more. They had a gorgeous outdoor wedding at the Cedarbrook Country Club where family and friends surrounded them in prayer.  From Tiffany’s beautiful fitted lace gown to the blush tones in her bouquet all of the details fit together perfectly. Tiffany’s grandmother even baked her wedding cake using homemade buttercream. For favors they gave out mini s’mores kits for every guest. What better way to end a reception but with sparkler send off . It was so much fun to see all of Tiffany and Gregory’s guest cheer with excitement with the sparkler send off.

Crystal Tea Room – Katie & Matt

I am so excited to share Katie and Matt’s wedding on the blog today. There wedding took place in my favorite city of Philadelphia!! We had a great day of traveling around the city for pictures. Starting at the Art Museum then heading over to Boat House Row and ending out front of City Hall. After the ceremony at St. John the Evangelist church we headed to the Crystal Tea Room / Finley Catering to get the party started. Katie and Matt’s grand entrance leading into a choreographed dance was a great surprise. It was awesome to see everyone on the dance floor clapping and cheering with excitement.

Words from my sweet bride-

What was your favorite part of the day?

Seeing Matt for the first moment! I felt so ready for this moment and as soon as I looked at him from the top of the stairs I knew he was ready too. He was also crying, which I was not expecting at all!! My Dad walking me down the aisle and giving me away was also so significant. I have thought about that moment so many times and when it actually happened, all I felt was love and pure appreciation I had for my parents to get me to that moment!
