A Philadelphia Old City and Society Hill Wedding – Francesca and Jason

From the second I walked through the door of her Sheraton Society Hill hotel room on Saturday, Francesca had me laughing. Literally the very first thing she said to me was hilarious. And it continued all day. Francesca and Jason’s Society Hill wedding was filled with all the warm, romantic moments you find at most weddings, but the highlight for me of this one was the laughter. And it wasn’t just Francesca and Jason. Their wedding party, their family, their guests-everyone was clearly having the time of their lives. It was such an amazing celebration to be able to capture: from the portraits in Old City and City Hall, the ceremony at The Shambles, to the Reception at the Society Hill Dance Academy, it was a pleasure to be a part of their day and to be able to photograph this amazing couple.

Congratulations Francesca and Jason! Enjoy the photos and be sure to wish the couple well in the comments below!

An Anthony Wayne House Wedding – Aubrey and Phil

5

Aubrey and Phil’s Anthony Wayne House wedding was fantastic. Despite the fact that they had close to 200 people celebrate with them, the day still somehow felt incredibly intimate. Aubrey and Phil are both warm, funny, and friendly and it was simply a pleasure capturing their day. We started a the hotel and then headed to The Anthony Wayne House in Historic Waynesborough. Once there, we had a little bit of time before the ceremony started and Aubrey’s bridesmaids spent a little time regaling her mother with tales of high school mischief that she wasn’t previously aware of (e.g. lawn-forking: it’s a Pottstown thing, apparently). I found that conversation both hilarious and a fantastic opportunity to capture some candid shots of the women before the ceremony. During the ceremony, the portraits and the reception that followed I was struck by how expressive, natural, and close Phil and Aubrey are. The formalities of the wedding day was not at all intimidating to them and they couldn’t be separated all night long. As evidenced by the photos, you can see that they spent their wedding sharing the same brilliant smile.

Congratulations Aubrey and Phil! Enjoy the photos and please be sure to wish the couple well I the comments below!

Yardley Country Club and Princeton Wedding – Emily and Tom

What an awesome day for Emily and Tom’s Yardley Country Club and Princeton Wedding. Emily and Tom met at the University of Pittsburgh. Like most Pitt grads, they and their fellow Pitt grad guests have a serious affinity for their school (the reception was peppered with shouts of Go Pitt!). Though they live now in Pittsburgh, Tom’s family is from Yardley so that’s where they chose to celebrate the day. Emily was also a huge fan of the buildings and gardens at Princeton University so we captured their first look and wedding portraits on Princeton’s beautiful campus.  One of my favorite stories that I heard repeatedly throughout their day was that Tom was so enamored with Emily that he, standing at over six feet tall, would happily visit Emily at her parents’ house and sleep on their five-foot futon in order to spend time with her and her family. It clearly did the trick in demonstrating his commitment to Emily and now, hopefully, they can come to terms on appropriately sized furniture in their new home together.

Congratulations Emily and Tom! Enjoy the Photos!

A Manor House at Prophecy Creek Wedding – Stephanie and Jon

1

Stephanie and Jon’s Manor House at Prophecy Creek Wedding was excellent! Stephanie and Jon found me in 2015 and I loved my meeting with them because I could tell how excited they were about each other and the photography on their day. In the fall we visited their alma mater, Lafayette college for their engagement shoot and we made some great photos and I got to meet Daisy, their dog who played an important role in the wedding. Stephanie and Jon’s day was particularly unique because they blended their Jewish and Hindu backgrounds and traditions throughout the day. Stephanie’s grandmother blessed Jon before the ceremony and Stephanie and Jon surprised everyone when they changed into a Sari and Sherwani (respectively) and performed a traditional Indian dance at the end of the reception. It may have also been the first time I’ve shot a wedding where the Bride had just completed her boards and the Groom had just passed the bar. That’s a lot to take on in the same year you get married. Stephanie and Jon are the true definition of a power couple and they are super kind, warm and just great people to be around. It was such an awesome day and I’m so happy we got to capture it for them.

Congratulations Stephanie and Jon! Enjoy the photos and be sure too wish them well in the comments below!

A Holly Hedge Wedding – Sunny and Austin

1

Sunny and Austin’s Holly Hedge Wedding was fantastic. Holly Hedge is one of my favorite venues to shoot at and Sunny and Austin are one of my favorite couples to photograph. In our very first conversation over a year ago, Sunny blew me away with how excited she was, both for and about pictures. We talked about all kinds of ideas for the engagement session which after careful consideration we were able to plan in the fall at a semi-private beach near Cape May at sunset.  We had such a good time and I was really looking forward to Saturday’s wedding. Saturday’s weather was aggressively steamy and though the clouds were threatening all day, we had some fantastic luck with the rain as it came and went at the perfect times. We were able to capture some portraits at the nearby Stockton Bridge, where we they literally stopped traffic.  Back at Holly Hedge, their dog Coda made a brief appearance to stake his claim to Sunny. Then we all enjoyed a beautiful outdoor ceremony that beat the rain by mere minutes. After the cocktails in the old barn and a packed dance floor reception, we captured some enchanting late night photos in the rain. Having the opportunity to shoot those night shots is one of my favorite things to do and capturing them in the rain at the end of a long wedding day takes a special couple like Sunny and Austin. So happy we got to be there for this wedding1

Congrats Sunny and Austin! Be sure to wish them well in the comments below!
