I cannot express enough how much I love engagement sessions. Not only does it give me a chance to get to know you better but it gives you a chance to get in-front of the camera. Old City Philadelphia is one of my favorite places to take my couples for there engagement session. Old City has the perfect combination of charm and color. I was thrilled when Nicki and John decided Elfreth’s Alley, Merchant’s Exchange and City Hall would be perfect for there engagement session. I had the best time traveling around the city with these two.  I cannot wait for there wedding!!

A special thank you to Nicole Lois Photography for assisting me on this Old City engagement session!

 

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!

Amy Elizabeth - What can I say?! Let me start with how much I love the style that Ashlee Mintz Photography shows off with every session! This Old City Philadelphia engagement session is no different. I love the bright, bold and beautiful feel you provided to this future bride and groom! Great locations and use of lighting for their photos. Great work!

Cassie Xie - What a GORGEOUS and fun session!! I can’t believe how personal these adorable props are. The light in Nicki and John’s old city engagement session is just too divine. You did such a beautiful job of capturing this couple’s love in such a variety of different ways! I’m totally inspired to try my hand at shooting more film (my last engagement, I shot a grand total of…..6 shots on film, sigh)… just need to hire an assistant first, I guess! Beautiful session!! <3

Kelly Loeffler - This engagement session is so dreamy! I love the setting in Old City Philadelphia and that red door is so cute!

Jennifer Lincoln - Ashlee, these are wonderful! I love your use of color. The exposure level gives them a lighter, more fun feeling. The balloons also contribute to the atmosphere. Great work as always!

Parker Radbourne - I’m in love with this engagement session! I feel bad for the couple, having to make choices between all these gorgeous images! I love that you shoot film, as well, it’s such a perfect, beautiful, look that is just not possible duplicate with digital. Seriously, you give Old City Philadelphia new life with your engagement photography!

I was so honored when John ( grooms father ) asked me to photograph Torrie and Jeff’s wedding. John is also talented photographer who has been a photography mentor to me as well. Having another photographer you admire ask you to photograph one of the most important days of there son’s life is one of the biggest compliments you can receive.

I knew when I met with Torrie and Jeff that there wedding on the Mount Harmon Plantation would be nothing short of a fun and amazing day. Especially, when I found out Gracie there pup was also going to be included. I was thrilled to travel across the state of Maryland to capture this beautiful wedding. This destination wedding included photographs on the dock, an outdoor tented reception and a perfect ceremony overlooking the eastern shore.

Paul Spetrini - What a gorgeous and fun wedding by Ashlee Mintz photography.

I loved the look and feel of these photos, especially the cool shots of the bride getting her dress put on and the shots of the dog walking down the aisle with what looked like a camera on its back. Such a cool idea!

Ashlee, your lighting in these shots is top notch and I adore the emotions you caught during this couple’s reception. So awesome. Keep up the good work!

These are some of my favorite getting ready photos yet and I love that you took the time to take an impromptu boudoir shot <3 Your choice in framing and composition always gives your subjects so much room to breathe and exude emotion. The bridal party photos with the little teal sofa – oh my heart! The colors of this wedding are so perfectly matched with the Mount Harmon Plantation. What a beautiful, joyful celebration!

Collaborating with Arielle Fera Events to bring this dark moody vision to life led to the most beautiful, gothic, and romantic wedding inspiration. This shoot has a lot of different elements/details, from the lush floral tablescape to the cabbage that lies under a marble name card. The palette included rich, deep tones of purples, blacks, charcoals, and blues. These jewel tones evoked the most magical setting for a stunning bride and her bridesmaids.

Cassie Xie - Those acrylic menus are my absolute favorite detail!! The slightly darker tones of this inspiration shoot’s palette and the gorgeous shadowing in the bridal portraits make for such a beautiful, gothic tone. I couldn’t imagine a better space to shoot in! I love the way the long ribbons of the bouquets mimic the models’ flowing dresses and hair. Also – some of the BEST LOOKING cakes I’ve ever seen!!

Jennifer Lincoln - Ashlee, I am speechless. Your compositions are truly amazing. I am so impressed with your work, and look forward to seeing more from you, thanks to the blog circle.

Ashlee, your work is simply stunning and makes me so envious every single time I look at it.

Awesome tones, color and mood. Great job!

A special thank you to Alex Schon Photography for joining me in photographing this stunning wedding!

Parker - Truly gorgeous wedding photography. Overbook Country Club is a lucky venue, to have hosted this beautiful wedding!

Lori Foxworth - I absolutely adore the Overbrook Country Club for wedding photos! Your detail shots are always absolutely perfect. The bridal portraits with the veil are SO lovely as well as the romantic photos of the bride and groom. I love your posing of bridal parties as well. They are elegant and sophisticated, and still fun. Beautiful work as always!

Kelly Loeffler - This is a wonderful wedding at the Overbook Country Club. Your bridal portraits are simply stunning. I love your light romantic style. The formals of the bride and groom during golden hour are my favorite. You do such beautiful work this bride and groom must be so thrilled

Amy Elizabeth - EVERY single wedding photo is stunning!!! Overbook Country club is a gorgeous wedding venue and you captured it beautifully. Ashlee Mintz you are a FANTASTIC wedding photographer! Thank you for sharing your talents 🙂

Jennifer Lincoln - I notice that several of your photos are metal/shiny objects against very soft backgrounds, like the shoes, and the rings. This is really effective and beautiful. It showcases the object, and at the same time, adds a softness and serenity to the photo. I am really impressed!

Lillian - These gorgeous wedding photos at Overbrook Country Club are so perfect Ashlee Mintz, it’s hard to believe they’re real!

Steve Kuzma - Another beautifully captured wedding by Ashlee Mintz! The Overbrook Country club looks like such a great venue to have a wedding at. Lou and Ashley look absolutely stunning and gorgeous in their portraits, and your images have a beautiful vintage look that really capture their style perfectly!

Paul Spetrini - Ashlee, I’m not too familiar with your work so maybe this is just a typical shoot for you but I’m sitting here at my computer with my mouth agape at how wonderful these photos were.
Seriously. The whole time I’m reading through this blog, I’m just hoping to see a bad image or two to make me feel better about myself but you absolutely killed it here.
There are a dozen or more shots that I’m so envious of and, to me, that means you really put together an incredible effort here capturing this couple’s big day.
I especially loved the colors in the bridal prep photos as well as the absolutely stunning formal photos of the bride and groom.
Amazing stuff.
