Tom & Erin’s Proposal!

Posted on February 2, 2020

Tom & Erin are engaged! And OMG, this was one for the books! Tom found me through doing a search for proposal photographers in Philadelphia – since I guess I’ve done this a few times…what can I say, I like hiding in the bushes and being a photo love ninja. 🙂
It was all planned out – we even met 2 days before to do a little walk-through on picture-perfect Addison Street of what would happen, what trees he’d stop at to kneel down…the whole thing. He managed to plan everything without Erin knowing, which was a feat because this girl is on it! Erin has an incredibly awesome and popular food blog and instagram called https://www.erinliveswhole.com/. Tom, in turn, has a parody account called “Tom lives full.”
Erin and Tom met at Penn State University through a childhood best friend while in college. Three years later they reunited when Tom invited Erin to an ugly sweater party in Philly of December 2015…hoping on a whim to catch up as a group with some mutual friends. They hit it off that night, and haven’t gone a day without talking since! They were official by the next month and have been together for exactly 4 years before proposing 3 days after their 4 year anniversary and one day after her birthday! She had NO idea it was coming, which was the best feeling ever for both of them! Tom, you really such an amazing job!
Erin was so expressive, so surprised and so adorable in every way. Tom organized both families to be there soon after, and even threw an after party only blocks away at Lou Birds where the rest of the family and friends were waiting! Erin and Tom, it was an absolute joy to be part of this amazing moment for you both. The whole thing was just full of happiness and joy. So so happy for you both!!!

Brittany & Xylon – Hollywood Glam at the Morris Arboretum

Posted on October 28, 2019

Brittany & Xylon brought the Hollywood Glam all the way from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, and it was incredible!! They met on set working in the entertainment industry in California, and have been adventuring the earth together ever since. The colors, the style, the gorgeousness all felt perfect… starting with the epic mansion with beautiful light everywhere, to the lush and flower-filled Morris Arboretum. Brittany and Xylon’s day was full of love in every way. And this bride is beautiful inside and out! There were so many small personal creative touches that were special to see and be a part of. Thank you Brittany & Xylon for inviting me to capture this amazing time in your lives. It was an absolute dream!     …

Tom & Julia – Old City Engagement

Posted on December 15, 2017

When best friends celebrate their love in December, cuddling isn’t so hard to do. It began at the Christmas-adorned Plough & the Stars in Old City. Tom & Julia enjoyed a Guinness by the fire with a sweet Irish folk band serenading them on this chilly Sunday afternoon. We explored the neighborhood together, stopping through old bookstores, colorful puddles, snowy gardens, historic & colorful Elfreth’s alley and even made a stop through the windy, yet always epic Race Street Pier to enjoy the view of the Ben Franklin Bridge. These two love Philadelphia, so we couldn’t end the day without a romantic Septa train to part ways. If only every day could be as lovely, cozy and festive as this one. I’ll take it! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mollie & Peter – Ben Franklin Bridge, Race Street Pier & Power Plant Productions

Posted on August 30, 2017

 

Beautiful New York City couple gets married in Philadelphia….has a nice ring to it! I can’t help the love I have for my city, so I was pretty pumped to show it off with Mollie and Peter on a beautiful summer day in a most epic location. From Mollie getting ready at the gorgeous Kimpton Hotel Monaco, to Peter and his guys living large at their own bright loft for day of preparations, to the sweeping views of the Ben Franklin Bridge on the Race Street Pier… this day was incredible. We ventured around Old City and the Delaware waterfront, past fences and through fields to get some patriotic summer lovin’ looks. I had always wanted to photograph the American Flag mural that is displayed an abandoned warehouse on Colombus Blvd., but because it’s large size, it was hard to figure out how to get the right perspective. On my location scouting bike ride the week before, I found it – an unassuming whispy, field of tall grasses next to a storage garage parking lot. A bit unconventional to say the least, but Mollie and Peter didn’t even flinch when I told them my plan. She picked up her dressed and march straight into unknown territory with me, and the results were amazing!

 

The energy continued into the night and into the dance floor, with some of the best dabbin’, dancing, and all around throw downs to date at the Power Plant Productions. Lots of love and fun in this family. I had a blast working with Mollie and Peter, and hope you enjoy a little glimpse of their lovely day.

 

 

Rebecca & Warren – Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology

Posted on May 30, 2017

I’m in the mood to spread a little love today. Reflecting on just over a year ago when I had the very awesome privilege of shooting Rebecca & Warren’s wedding at the University of Pennsylvania’s – Museum of Anthropology in Philadelphia. This wedding was nothing short of epic moments throughout the entire day. These two are both such beautiful people, inside and out. I loved their classic and stunning attire. I loved their expressive and amazing friends and family, who are all clearly the most perfect reflection of them. I loved their heartfelt and absolutely jaw dropping beautiful vows, reaching deep into each others’ raw hearts for all of us to hear and see. Their wedding day was the same day as the Kentucky Derby…and…

Charlotte & Brian’s Wedding at the Philadelphia Racquet Club

Charlotte & Brian gave me so many amazing opportunities to take unique and beautiful photos every time we were together. From their engagement shoot in Hickory Run State Park, to an amazing day at the Philadelphia Racquet Club and a stroll down to Rittenhouse Square , to their sweet and emotional vows,  photography has always been really important to them, and of course, that makes my heart sing! It was a beautiful day, and they were just so so so so so so happy. I’ve never seen a dress move like Charlotte’s – it flowed through the air like a dream, so dancing throughout the day served the purpose of amazing photos and practicing their epic first dance. But I think my favorite dance of all them was the one they did at the end of the night on Broad Street! Holy amazing you guys!
Charlotte and Brian, thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your story.
