Krista & Stephen | Knowlton Mansion Wedding

CONGRATS to Krista and Steve!!!! November 13, 2015 was the quintessential  beautiful day for a Philadelphia fall wedding.

All in all it was quite a day! Love, fun, awesomeness……..it was a GREAT wedding. Congrats you two!! Enjoy this window into your amazing day.

Jen & Chris | Philadelphia Engagement Session

WOOHOO!! Jen and Chris are engaged!! We had a nice early start (7am) for this incredible session.  We started at Head House Square – which we had to ourselves…and well, pretty much all of the city was super sleepy for our sunrise session! The sun was delicious, the fall colors were glowing and much fun was had.  Keep an eye out for their 2016 October wedding!!

Donna & Joey | The Racquet Club of Philadelphia Wedding

Congratulations to Donna and Joey!  What a gorgeous day Saturday, October 24, 2015 was for their wedding.  I’ve been shooting weddings long enough now that it seems like all of my weddings are connected…either with people I know or that my clients know…or when my two work-worlds collide.  Turns out that I know Joey’s mom from my “day-time” job as a school counselor; I’ve seen her present her financial aid wisdom many times over the years!  It was lovely to see a familiar face when I met up with the girls for getting ready.

The day was as follows 1)  Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia for getting ready, 2) Rittenhouse Park for the First Look and formals, and  3) Ceremony was held in the Racquet Club of Philadelphia.

The day could not have been more perfect.  Donna and Joey adore each other and it was a very special day for all involved.  Congratulations to you both!!  I wish you both love and happiness for eternity. <3

Erica and Nick’s Wedding | Valley Forge Park & Joseph Ambler Inn

The wedding of Erica and Nick is very near and dear to me; you see….I was their high school guidance counselor at Jenkintown High School and was lucky to see them grow up, graduate, and now marry each other!!

Erica and Nick were married on Saturday, October 17, 2015.  This date is more than just their wedding date…it is also the date of Erica’s mother’s birthday.  I knew Erica’s mother and I remember her being a super supportive and loving presence in Erica’s life. I was sad to hear that Erica’s mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer and that October 17, 2015 would have been her 60th birthday.  Erica shared with me that it was important to have her mother be part of the wedding celebration and to be part of their marriage.  Erica’s mother had asked her many times before she died if she thought that Erica would marry Nick; Erica’s response, “I think so!”

Erica and Nick were married at Immaculate Conception Church, next we had fun with confetti at Jenkintown High School (shhh…don’t tell my principal that I was the one that made that mess he found Monday morning….LOL), then off to the Valley Forge Park for picturesque, beautiful, and romantic bridal party pictures.  It was mostly an overcast day…but when the sun comes out in the fall in a beautiful field…magic happens. I just want to thank the bridal party for being AMAZING….turns out that I also graduated a few of the folks in the bridal party too. Finally the party ended at the Joseph Ambler Inn!

Kudos to my second photog, Sean Bolton, for helping the boys discover their silly sides (though… it’s not hard when you have Bobby Hill in the bunch!), and a wonderful shout out to the Videographers- Jordan Green and Ryan McCluskey- from Branded Productions for being easy and fun to work with.  It’s always a special bonus when venders work well together.

Congratulations! I love you both and wish you an eternity of love and happiness!! <3

Bridget & Kevin Wedding | Valley Forge Park

Congratulations to Bridget and Kevin who were married on October 10, 2015. Fall weddings are magical and beautiful and this day was all of that and more.  I could tell from the very first time meeting Bridget that she was going to be a fun bride…and boy was I right.  When I met Kevin, I could see why they have been together for so long….in fact, just to point out a fact…the best man speech was my most favorite speech ever (and I’ve worked many, many weddings). I think my favorite line was something about how Bridget and Kevin were an item since before the first ipod….so, ya….this wedding was a long time coming for both families. Lots of smiling, laughing and a rockin’ good party!!

Enjoy this sneak peek and help me shower Bridget and Kevin with lots of love!!

Ceremony: St. Eugene Church in Primos, PA
