Brina & Patrick | Engagement At Joanna’s Furnace

Brina, Patrick and I have been trying to shoot their engagement session for months.  Our planning goes all the way back to Christmas time!  Almost each and every time we tried to put something together we would find Mother Nature didn’t like our plan.  Be it 10 degree temperatures, 8 inches of snow or pouring rain.  We had scheduled their shoot for this week and the night before, in the beautiful beginning weather of Spring, I found myself staring out my window watching a thick snow come down.  Luckily it warmed up a bit and the grounds cleared up for an awesome session!  You will see these two on the blog again soon because their wedding is just about one month away!  Congrats you guys and see you again soon!  My fingers will be crossed for good weather!

Lisa & Scott | Wedding At The Glasbern Inn

There is nothing like starting out the 2014 wedding season with an awesome couple getting married on an amazing farm property in 70 degree weather.  Lisa and Scott had their beautiful wedding at the incredible Glasbern Inn in Fogelsville, PA.  The grounds are really something and we took advantage of them as much as we possibly could.  They had an amazing sunset, a Star Wars themed cake (theme song was played during the cutting!) and a family that exploded with love and laughter all day long.  You can’t beat it!  Check these two out and enjoy some highlights.  Congrats you guys and thank for starting my year off great!  Stay tuned for many more blogs to come.

Metra & Evan | Engagement In Nolde Forest

It is finally time to kick off wedding and portrait season!  Yell a huge congrats at your screen for Metra and Evan!  These two love birds came all the way from Arlington to shoot.  They enjoy good food and good Disney movies.  We all agreed that Frozen is not one of them.  I stick with the Disney classics or Pixar myself.  We spent a few hours wandering around the expansive Nolde Forest and snapped some photos along the way.  This is the first of a thousand posts that will be going up this year on the blog!  Stay tuned for more posts soon including one coming up in a few weeks with these two smiling faces for their wedding at the Engineer’s Club in Baltimore, MD.

My daughter Eleanor turned three today.  It has been an amazing three years.  I’m so lucky to have such an amazing family.  Eleanor’s secret identity is Dr. Princess Girl.  Her secret is safe with us.  Happy Birthday sweet pea!

Huatulco, Mexico

Last week I spent five days in Huatulco, Mexico with 40 incredible wedding photographers from all over the world.  We spent it at the amazing Las Palmas Resort.  The photograph above is the view at midnight.   It was a reunion for the three Genesis Workshops which have been held in Philadelphia, Memphis and Las Vegas.  We had an incredible time in an incredible place.  I ate some form of taco for every meal of every day.  I even ended up capturing a proposal and engagement session while we were in town!  Check out the preview blog for that entire amazing story!  Enjoy some highlights.
