I've known Liz for quite a long time. I think it may have been since Sunday School, is that right Liz!? Anyway, we reconnected post-college when she discovered my photography website and kindly recommended me to one of her friends who booked me for her wedding. The funny part is that Liz wasn't even engaged at the time and now I'll be photographing her wedding even before her friend's.
We shot Liz and Josh's engagement at Swarthmore College and in spite of the fact that we nearly missed the whole thing due to traffic and road closings, I think we still got some great shots! I can't wait for your wedding in November, it will be here before you know it :)
I never post twice in one day but I just received an email from Andrea, probably the nicest email I've ever gotten, and I couldn't wait until tomorrow to post these shots from their engagement on Friday.
Not only is Andrea a beautiful girl on the outside but she is sweet and bubbly and makes you feel totally comfortable around her. While Andrea was talking details with the venue coordinator, Brian and I chatted about college basketball and the Lakers, among other things. Like Andrea, he is totally easy to be around and they both just make you feel good. As a couple, Brian and Andrea are completely at ease with each other and on the same page. There is a gentleness between them that was very special to watch (and capture!). I can see that they have a very loving relationship and I think they are on a great path.
I loved shooting in Phoenixville and I think they scouted out fantastic spots to shoot. I am so glad that they were as pleased as I was with the outcome :)
I can't wait to shoot at the Phoenixville Foundry next weekend and again in November for Andrea and Brian's wedding. We were lucky enough to get inside for some shots on Friday and the space is extraordinary!
Thank you Andrea for the lovely email and for such a nice time on Friday morning.
I knew there was a lot to expect from this wedding. After talking with Lisa and Chris several times about their day and everything they had planned, I was excited to finally see everything come together and to be able to photograph such a whirlwind of a reception. From the grand entrance to the beautiful and touching toasts and the all of the Indian traditions which took place, this reception was perhaps the most fun party I have photographed. I couldn't have felt more welcome the whole day and I was even somehow pushed into the final "group hug" around the bride and groom.
These were probably the greatest two entrances I've ever seen at a wedding. The couple's siblings came in to "Gold Digger" with excellent props, only to be followed by the bride and groom who had some costumes of their own. To be honest, I was not expecting this in the least and I don't think the guests were either so I think everyone was floored. Nice touch.
I went to college with Leah and we had several mutual friends through the sports we played there. I was beyond excited when Leah asked me to photograph her wedding. As I've said before, I LOVE working with people I know, it makes it so special. I can't wait for Leah and Mike's wedding at the Radnor Hotel, I know it will be beautiful. We shot their engagement session at Longwood Gardens and I was so pleased with the way the images came out. Enjoy these few favorites of mine, it was hard to choose!
I blogged a preview of this wedding a few weeks back but I wanted to post more of Alison and Corey's beautiful day. They were married at the Midtown Loft and Terrace in Manhattan. The great thing about this venue is that it is a complete blank slate so each wedding at the Loft is a perfect reflection of the couple getting married there. Alison and Corey wanted to have pictures taken in Central Park which always makes me a very happy photographer. We avoided the rain all day and everything turned out beautifully.
After Central Park, we headed to the Loft to wait for the ceremony to start and the guests to arrive. I found Alison and Corey in a corner practicing their very carefully choreographed first dance (to the song playing on an iPhone held by the Maid of Honor). It was so sweet and the light was SO nice where they were dancing.
Thank you, Alison and Corey, for inviting me to be a part of your celebration!
