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!!!

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…

Laurel & Dan’s Wedding in the Catskills

Posted on September 24, 2015

  Laurel & Dan’s wedding is too lovely not to revisit, and this time of the year is so incredibly beautiful….I wanted to remember it too. Like many of the weddings I shoot, I just wish we could do it all over again and go back to that awesome, magical day. Set in the beautiful Catskill mountains at a private home with a sweet little lily pad pond, these two celebrate their love with all their favorite people. Their ceremony was one of the most heart-felt, emotional ceremonies I have ever witnessed. Everything was so personal, so sweet and so special. I felt so special to be a part of it. I also really enjoyed taking all these beautiful pictures. I hope you like…

Lydia & Tushar rocked their wedding in style. It was colorful, cultural, warm and inviting, fashionable & fun. These are all the words that come to mind when I think back on their awesome day in Philly.  And although I wish I could have been at their wedding in India as well… I was pretty excited to rock the American celebration by taking them to some EPIC Philly spots. Can you guess where the one above was? It was one of those magical moments when everything just worked out and we got that mural all to ourselves after exploring some familiar tiny streets, and gorgeous museum grounds. Just another day in awesome wedding world land. 🙂

Kristen & Christian

Kristen & Christian 20

 

 

Once upon a time I lived with two sisters…in a house beside a house with two sisters in the center of a city. We broke down the rickety old wall between the back patios (literally) and thus began a super fun time of some single ladies on an adorable little block called Mole Street. That’s where it all began. At least for me and Kristen. She moved to Philly (I think largely upon my suggestion, or at least I’d like to think so) when deciding where to go to grad school. Her sister Kara and I were room mates in college, and when the house next door to mine happen to come up for rent, I called upon the Howland sisters to make a move – and I’m so glad they did!!
Kristen & Christian’s romance began sometime in that era…the Mole Street era as I’ll call it. Christian was just about to embark on an epic entrepreneurial journey to China, but their connection was strong, and upon his return, these two were the newest new couple on the block. To say that Kristen and Christian are adventurous would be an understatement in describing their lust for life. They do more traveling than most people I know – and so it was only fitting that Christian finally popped the question in Paris, France earlier this year. These two are the team to beat every time at yard games, the king and queen of weekend trips, staying active and working to live rather than living to work.
So although I wanted them to go climb a mountain or jet ski on a lake, or take me with them to another country to photograph their engagement session, we went to the beach, which is pretty much the next best thing. The light was stunning that evening…ah the light, the pretty pretty early evening light with a sunset to knock your socks off. It’s great to see your friends that you’ve known forever fall into place when it’s their turn for wedding photography fun. And although there was some prompting which may have resulted in some face-licking, or ear-smelling…I think the end result here is pretty awesome.  🙂

A Christmas Proposal – Ryan & Meghan

Posted on January 2, 2015

My heart was beating so fast as I kept looking toward the South entrance to city hall. With two huge lenses hanging from my side, I clearly had a purpose, but somehow kept getting in the way of all the folks trying to take their yearly selfies and portraits in front of the Christmas Tree. Another text……they were parked and now walking! I had my perfect shot all set-up, but a large group of tourists happen to step into my composition as Ryan and Meghan stepped through the South entrance to City Hall. They were SO cute. I suggested he take some deep breaths, chat a little while I move around upon their arrival. Ryan told me he had asked Meghan’s parents for permission…
