Hotel Monaco Wedding in Philadelphia..

Even though I didn't meet Aubre and Michael until the day of their wedding at Hotel Monaco but I felt super connected to them.  We chatted on the phone about West Philly (They used to live here) music and non-cheesy wedding photos.  I loved how everything was totally elegant but they were so relaxed and even goofy.  Aubre wins at giving best ugly face and pretty face.  Mike has a hard time with ugly face.  (see below) Their first dance was to a Talking Heads song.  Can you guess which one?   I'm so lucky to have such great clients!

Union Trust Wedding in Philadelphia

As many of you know I meet with my couples at 7th and Chestnut so I was thrilled to hear C&T were getting married and having their reception at Union Trust which is on the same block here in Philadelphia.  C&T as well as their awesome families were a joy to shoot for.  How elegant are they?!   I loved that we could just leave from The Hotel Monaco and walk around for a few photos then walk right into Union Trust for all the celebrations.

Normandy Farms Wedding Photos.

Only two years late is this blog post from Mary Kate and Jeff's Normandy Farm Wedding.  I love that they let me use her parents Elvis bust for this top family portrait.  Also, the baby photo at the end had me cracking up!

Rittenhouse Engagement Session with a Gold Dress: Marissa and Greg

Marisa and Greg are getting married this July and so we shot some engagement photos around Graduate Hospital where they live.  They were open to a more casual laid back shoot that was offset by Marissa's awesome gold sequin dress and Greg's touches of burgundy.  We walked their pup then got dressed and took a stroll.

Stef and Joe's West Philly Wedding at The Woodlands

Joe proposed to Stef with a ring made of twisted grass that they then had cast in gold.  Everything about this day had magic and love infused.  From the gowns her Mother handmade, the decor her sister hand strung (she also did hair and make-up) the flowers assembled from the Clark Park farmers market.  Everyone had a little part in making it all come together.  Stef and Joe live in West Philly and wanted everything hyper-local.  Including Their ceremony and Cocktails at The Woodlands and their cheese heavy (the good kind) party at Saint Francis.
