Jillian & Bowie are an adorable couple who currently live in Texas but chose Holly Hedge in New Hope, PA as the setting for their summer wedding. They searched for the perfect venue that represented them, and it turned out that Bowie remembered Holly Hedge from his childhood and it’s there where they chose to have their organic and rustic wedding. Everything pretty much was perfect! The day was heartfelt, emotional, and a privilege to document.  I loved hanging with not only this great couple but also their very sincere family and friends. Here are my favorites…

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Gina & Jay’s engagement session on the hottest day of the year on a sultry and sexy summer day. 😉 We met up at their friend’s amazing farm in Neshanic Station in Central New Jersey where the frequently hang out and where they also got engaged, right under a giant tree. This place was amazing and perfect and I’m pretty sure their friend Tom can rent this out by the hour for bridal party photos!

My old home town of Philadelphia, PA was the scene for Heather and Matt’s wedding this past June and it was good to be back to be a part of this awesome celebration. Their ceremony was held at historic Old Saint Joseph’s Church, which is tucked away down a tiny street in Society Hill, and then we headed to the Kimmel Center on Broad Street for the big party. Yeah, the weather was pretty lousy that day but so what!? We could have had a hail hurricane but no crummy weather was going to stop Heather and Matt from having a blast on their wedding day. See for yourself!

    Great wedding. Fabulous dancers! Wonderful memories!

The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park, NJ was the scene of the pretty awesome wedding of Kristin and Stephanie, who tied the knot on the beach on a glorious sunny day this past May. I started the day with Kristin at the Hot Mess Studio (best name for salon, ever) along with her bridesmaids and then we eventually ended up at the hotel and met up with Stephanie. The hotel was stunning and a perfect venue for such these two gals. I love same sex weddings… the energy always seems to go to to 11! And as you can see, everyone had a blast.  But I think Kristin had the most fun! These are my favorites from the day…

    Just amazing truly captured the beauty and energy of the day and night. They found their soul mates and you have told that story through these photographs.ReplyCancel

Take a warm and sunny spring day, combine that with a chunk of laughter and a huge dollop of love, and then surround yourself with all your favorite people, and what you get is Cristy and Mike’s wedding. What a day that was! I had a great time documenting their wedding this past May at the Farmhouse at People’s Light & Theater in Malvern, PA.  I don’t think these two could make each other any happier… just look at Cristy’s face in these photos. Her smile is contagious and she is positively radiating pure happiness. It’s awesome.  Enjoy this preview!
