The Merion Cricket Club served as a beautiful backdrop for Liz and Josh's November wedding. Everything was so perfectly done and I remember their wedding day being one of the first fall days where you really felt a chill in the air. There's something about cold weather weddings that makes the party feel extra warm and inviting inside.
I've known Liz since we were kids in church school so it was an honor to photograph her special day and be a part of everything. Liz, you were a stunning bride and that fur was the icing on the cake :) I hope you had a fantastic honeymoon in Hawaii!
I met Patty while photographing her sister's wedding in NYC. I was so excited to work with their family again because they were some of the most kind and welcoming clients I've ever had. Patty and Joe were married on a Friday at the Liberty House which has a phenomenal view of the NYC skyline. I loved working there and I especially loved the 2 hours we had to shoot formals of the bridal party and family! Thanks to Georgi for doing a fantastic job second shooting for me. The night shot is a favorite of mine and is thanks to his skills :)
I loved shooting with Kate and Brett in Rittenhouse Square. The light was glowing and I was amazed at how much we accomplished in about one square city block! After the park we took a few photos at Parc, a restaurant where Kate and Brett went after they got engaged. I really enjoyed spending time in the city with both of them and I can't wait to shoot their wedding at Le Meridien next summer.
I photographed Luke and Caliana on an unusually chilly day in October. We were having great weather that week and all of a sudden the temperatures just dropped for the shoot. At least the leaves were at their peak! The twins were surprisingly happy and curious in a new place in spite of the weather. I had a great time chasing them around, along with Mommy and Hannah, who came to help wrangle :) Thanks Melissa, I loved seeing Luke and Cali and getting to spend some time with you!
Andrea and Jared's was one of those weddings that was booked only a few months in advance so I didn't have to wait long for all of the amazing things they had planned. I have to say I was most excited for the end of the night when everyone would be surprised with the opportunity to set off a paper lantern. My husband and I saw and did this for the first time on our honeymoon so of course I thought the idea was especially unique and creative. The guests loved it too! The grand finale to this beautiful, natural, farm wedding was a surprise fireworks show. And it was AWESOME. Each time I thought it was over, more and more fireworks started going off. It was really an amazing end to the evening.
Thank you Jared and Andrea for your kindness. I felt so appreciated and included in your day! You are a lovely couple and I wish you many years of happiness and fireworks :)
