Oh my goodness, I loved this session for so many reasons. Other than Stef and Russ being incredibly sweet, we had a featured guest, Provie the rescue pup! The beach is extremely important to Provie’s adoptive mom and dad, so of course we just had to go to the beach. After seeing Provie’s reaction, it’s safe to say he is a beach dog and totally with the right family. Accompanying us was Russ’ family, who helped take care of Provie for those photos that we wanted of just Stef and Russ. It’s safe to say these two are incredibly photogenic and so in love. Check back next year to see their beach wedding!
I’ve walked by this glorious vessel dozens of times and had not set foot on it until Krisha’s first birthday celebration. I’m not going to lie, Krisha was highly skeptical of the person behind the massive camera. For all she knew, I was some sort of robot. It’s a good thing I had some more than willing guests to help stand behind the camera to make her a little more trusting. She definitely warmed up to me and even gave the camera a few smiles.
Check out this classic Philadelphia wedding at The Franklin Institute between Ysabel and Jeff. One is a Giant’s fan while the other is an Eagle’s fan and they still tied the knot! These two luckily met each other just one month before they both graduated from Villanova University at a bar called Kelly’s. It’s a good thing they did, or this wedding would not have happened.
Melissa and Michael make a pretty cute couple don’t they? It is often awkward being in front of the camera and showing off some pda, but these two couldn’t keep their hands off each other from the very beginning! Not only were they ready for this session, but they were willing to do whatever goofy thing I made them do, like skip or give piggy back rides. The entire session was full of laughter, from all three of us if I am being completely honest. I can’t wait to see these contagious smiles again at their upcoming wedding.
Congratulations to Jess and Matt, who tied the knot in front of their friends and family on a beautiful day. We had an event filled morning while they were getting ready with their respective squads, and a little bit of an emotional one too. They had a smooth ceremony at St. John Bosco after their blind first look. First looks are growing in popularity, but this was my first experience with a blind first look, where the couple didn’t actually see each other. They simply wanted to be in each other’s presence to calm their nerves before heading into the church. They also wrote each other sweet love notes to read during this moment, which made it all the more special.
Does this place look familiar? It’s none other than the beautiful Morris Arboretum. The place isn’t the only familiar thing here because Mary was the Maid of Honor at Liz and Dan’s wedding last year. I am so excited to see some familiar faces at their upcoming wedding and see some past couples thriving!
This iconic Philly session was well worth the early wake up time. We started off at Belmont Plateau at sunrise to overlook the City of Brotherly Love and then went to do a mini series of the Love Letter Murals. If you haven’t heard of them before, there is an entire series scattered and tours are offered of this really cool artwork. Next up was the Love Statue and of course, City Hall. Vince is quite the fashion guru and I think they picked out the perfect outfits for their laugh-filled session.
