Crimson and Clover, Christine and Lauren, Unionville Vineyards, Ringoes, Nj

I decided to revisit a vow renewal/wedding from 2017 that I shot all by my lonesome. Lauren and Christine have been friends of mine for many years and I was honored to be the photographer during this special day at Unionville Vineyards. It was very laid-back day in June, the weather was perfect. They decided on a small, intimate ceremony and reception with only their closest friends and family. I used 35 mm lens on my Nikon D610 to keep it simple. I ate and drank while I shot the celebration. The food was incredible, I am still dreaming about the salmon dish. They picked the perfect location and beautiful details. This wedding will always remain a favorite for me. Check out the blog that was featured about C&L in Dancing With Her.

Elizabeth and Sean, Engagement at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pa

Love an engagement shoot at Longwood Gardens. It is such a relaxing environment with endless options for beautiful backdrops and hideaways. Beth and Sean decided on a late Sept. shoot just before closing. It was quiet. I think we saw more cats than people (Yes, Longwood has resident cats.) We had the whole place to ourselves and not much of a plan other than to seek out bright blooms, treehouses and the cafe lights at the beer garden. I love the warmth of these images. They make me excited for spring!!

Sara and Kevin, Philadelphia Waterworks Wedding

Kevin called me one week prior to his wedding and asked if I was free to photograph the day at the Water Works by Cescaphe in Philadelphia. He explained that he was used to putting together massive parties on short notice and now it was time to use that experience to plan his wedding in 3 weeks. Sara and Kevin decided that they wanted the day to be fun and carefree. And It was. The images from the day are mostly candid and that is what I really love about them. What you see if what was happening on that day. Real moments, no rushing or worrying. Just love and fun and family. Exactly what a wedding day should be. :)

Dylan and Morgan, Material Culture Wedding, Philadelphia, Pa

I think it is safe to say that my very favorite wedding venue in and around Philadelphia is Material Culture. Why you ask? Where do I begin? The colors, incredibly unique space, the staff, the food. The layout is perfect for moving around, catching up with friends in a relaxed and fun environment. I really can’t say enough about Material Culture. I was excited when I got a call from Dylan about his wedding to Morgan in September. This was the second time I have worked at this venue so we changed things up a bit from Ed and Maria’s wedding in 2016. Check out the photos of their big day and you will know why I feel the way that I do. Also, awesome couples get married at Material Culture! Thank you to Dylan and Morgan. You picked a place that fit perfectly laid-back vibe! All the best to you XOX

Sophie and Patrick's Engagement Shoot, Glen Foerd at Torresdale, Philadelphia, Pa

Sophie and I connected a few years ago via instagram. I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her wedding to Patrick at the Stotesbury Mansion in January of 2020. We decided on an engagement shoot at the Glen Foerd Mansion on the Delaware in Philadelphia. Sophie wanted their shoot to feel wintery and ethereal. I think we accomplished exactly that and had fun while doing it. Thank you Sophie and Patrick, you are a lovely couple. I am glad to be part of your wedding day!

Raelah and Ryan, Philly Lovers

Raelah and Ryan planned their engagement shoot right after booking their wedding. They knew that they wanted to explore the city and visit some of the famous Philadelphia landmarks, such as LOVE park, the Philadelphia Art Museum, City Hall and their favorite restaurant El Vez.  We also made a pitstop at the Barnes Museum to capture a shot of them on the benches and beyond the reflecting pool.   A shoot in Philly is easy and fun and I definitely recommend to any Philly lovers.  We beat the rain by a few minutes, it was fun and very relaxed.  Thank you Raelah and Ryan. You are a match made in heaven and I am so happy to be your photographer!

Sebastian and Lyndsey Engagement Shoot, Higbee Beach Cape May

I finally convinced someone to join me on an adventure to Cape May.  Earlier this year, I visited Cape May to check out the Ghost Tracks on Higbee Beach. (click here to see the WWI tracks that surfaced on the beach).  Anyway, during that trip I walked this amazingly beautiful and peaceful beach.  I hoped I would find a couple to venture to mile zero for a shoot.  When I asked Lyndsey if she would be interested, she agreed.  We met at the lighthouse and they followed me to our destination, making one pit stop at the nature center.  After learning that Sebastian is a merchant marine and avid birder, it seemed that this was exactly the couple that was meant for this shoot.  I am so glad they found me and glad they agreed to take the trip to Cape May.  It was so fun. I can't wait for their wedding in September.  Thank you Lyndsey and Sebastian!

Anna and Patrick, Ottsville, Pa, Barn Wedding

You couldn't ask for a day more perfect than this.  The sky went from blue to gray and back to blue. The clouds were white and puffy and made an already picturesque ceremony even more beautiful.  Anna and Patrick were married at a private family home in Ottsville, Pa.  The friendly neighbor was kind enough to let use their sunflower field for a few bridal party photos. However, we were welcomed by a very rowdy visitor that made us all a bit nervous... (scroll down to see who and why)  He had to be hugged by one of the groomsmen but you can see the worried look in everyone's eyes! Hint, no one wants muddy paws near a bridal gown.  

The details were absolutely breathtaking.  The mother-of-bride did such an amazing job planning and selecting the best vendors for her daughters big day. It went off without a hitch and more importantly, they had an incredible time.  Thank you Anna, Patrick and Linda.  You are awesome people and I was so happy to be there.
