Loving your story.

Megan & Alex

Posted on June 23, 2014


Megan & Alex might be one of the most smiley, natural, laid back couples I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. Take a look, and tell me that joy and happiness isn’t written all over this amazing day. They had so many special, personalized details that contributed to the combination of Irish Catholic and Chinese wedding celebrations. We met up for their first look at Washington Square Park, where Megan stopped a little girl in her tracks (or on her scooter) to come over and gush at what I’m sure she thought was a real live princess. She couldn’t help but reach out for a hug from such a pretty lady. :) One of my favorite parts of the day, was that Megan & Alex decided to walk down the aisle together. Best friends, and already 10 years partners in life- they were going to take this next step and long walk down the aisle of Saint Rita of Casia Shrine Chapel hand in hand as they approached the beautiful alter. It was perfect. We then ventured to FDR Park, and then onto a very South Philly celebration at Growlers Pub. Tecate’s in hand they they danced in the street, seeing neighbors and friends who happened to be passing by. It was wonderful day, all very close to home for this couple who I am so happy to call my friends.

Kristianna & Brendan – Wedding Sneak Peek!

Posted on June 10, 2014

Adventure follows these two travelers wherever they go… so naturally, we found ourselves biking, running barefoot on the beach, and finding hidden gems all over the place on Long Beach Island this past weekend. Kristianna & Brendan are so much fun, and beautiful people inside and out! This was the second time I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding for this incredible family, and I couldn’t have been happier. Here’s a little sneak peek from their fantastic wedding day.

Matt & Andressa

Posted on March 19, 2014

 Blog Collage-1395197042475Once upon a time, a tall, goofy soccer lovin’ teacher man, met the sweetest most lovely beautiful Brazilian Au Pair in a Philadelphia parking lot. Love at first sight does in fact exist, people. And when you spend as much time with these two as I am lucky enough to do…you know what the real deal is all about. Matt is one of my very best friends is the whole world from back in our high school days,  and when he introduced me to Andressa, I was immediately in love with her too. And we all know that we give a good up-down to our best friend’s new arm candy when they arrive. But once in a while you get to come across the kind of people that are straight-up made of joy and goodness, and when you are around them, they make  you feel special, and wonderful. I know I sound like I am in love with them too, and you are right! I am so so so so happy for my friends.
We ventured out on a cold snowy day to capture their love. Did I mention, they are getting married this summer in a tiny little church on the coast of Brazil? Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! Okay okay, it’s true I’m kind over-the-moon excited about this. We are ready for you summer!
So, after a long hiatus, from blogging (holy crap!) I’m hoping to get back on the horse and share many more stories like this from the past, present and future of this amazing job I have.

Ben & Marie

Posted on October 9, 2013

To find the one that compliments you, that loves what you love, that wants to walk alongside you in life. And climb rocks.
Ben & Marie are an incredibly active couple. Besides climbing, they are bikers, runners and avid and amazing ultimate frisbee champions. Capturing the essence of my couples is always my goal, but it gets tricky sometimes…although I’m always willing to go to great lengths to do it.  We actually hadn’t solidified all the plans, but when they both got out their climbing shoes at the base of the trail to Forbidden Drive in the Wissahickon woods in Philadelphia, I knew we were off to a good start. Ben & Marie are both from Philadelphia area, so shooting in a place that they love and have spent time rolling over the trail or bouldering the rocks was a great choice, not to mention absolutely beautiful.
These two are such a great match, and I’m so excited to be shooting their wedding in two weeks at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. It’s only fitting that people who love to climb rocks would want to throw a big party with the dinosaurs.

Emily & Clay

Posted on September 2, 2013

Blog Collage-1378147794727
This post goes out to a very special couple.
Emily and Clay are the kind of pair you just love to be around. Their fun, active, healthy, love of the outdoors lifestyle is infectious, and I told them that right from the start. “Let’s be friends!” We had an amazing time shooting their engagement photos all over the city. Then when it came time to capture their wedding, it was one of those days that was so special, so down to earth – maybe because everyone was wearing hiking boots, or maybe just because you were witnessing the real thing. Real love. Real People.
They got ready in their center city home in different parts of the house. I would run back and forth to each one, and throw my energy into the moment, but no additional excitement was needed…they were each cool as a cucumber – and  just couldn’t wait to see each other. We set up their first look in the back patio, which was pure joy, tears and laughter all in one.  We then all rode off together with their dog Chloe to the Wissahickon woods to a beautiful little spot that they had chosen to read their vows in front of a small gathering of their best friends & family. Celebrations continued back at their house before we all walked as a group the two blocks over to their favorite Italian Restaurant in Center City Philadelphia.
Emily & Clay, please send the wedding Gods more people like you, my way. The truth is, I love all my couples and I’m so excited to get to share in such an awesome day with you…and after it’s all complete, we’ve formed a special bond. So whether as a friend or photographer, I’m always happy to see you again.
Happy Anniversary to you both. :)
