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.

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…

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…
