We have had weekend after weekend of cold weather.  Zero.  Negative three.  It is supposed to be -4 out tonight.  The night before Emily and Rick’s wedding Mother Nature dumped 4 inches of snow and a thick coating of ice on us.  I woke up extra early to scrape off my car and battle my way towards Phoenixville to capture the ladies getting ready for their brunch time wedding.  Temperatures rose quickly and before we knew it we had one of the nicer days we have had in a long time with a lot of awesome white stuff everywhere!  Emily and Rick’s wedding was unique.  A ceremony and brunch at The Columbia Station in Phoenixville, PA.  There is something about bacon and waffles being served at a wedding that just makes me happy.  Coffee to wake up and not to stay awake.  No guests leaving early because it is getting late.  There were a lot of cool things about their Sunday brunch wedding.  The coolest thing was the awesome couple.  Congrats guys!

Weddings are usually a blur of faces and names over the course of a fleeting but long day.  Christiana and John had a short and sweet celebration for nine.  They were married where six generations of John’s family were married before him.  They were married under the cross his family had donated.  After the ceremony everyone shared a few drinks and an intimate dinner at the Lancaster Arts Hotel in Lancaster, PA.  I was honored to capture it.  Here are a few highlights.

We are so delighted to be awarded with The Knot’s Best of Weddings for 2015!  This honor is driven by 5 star reviews from people we have worked with in the past year, so we are particularly proud of this accomplishment.  We appreciate all of our awesome clients for letting us into your lives and allowing us do our thing. We are looking forward to the coming year and we can’t wait to share more memories with you!


This was our last wedding of the year.  We had never met Erin and Johannes but I think we were all pretty excited to take some awesome photos.  Erin and Johannes were married at the Woodgate building at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn in the Pocono Mountains.  The weather was amazing for late December and Erin and Johannes had an intimate first look so we got to take advantage of the mountain, woods and a setting sun.  It was a really laid back and fun wedding and the perfect way to close out 2014.  Thanks guys!  Enjoy some highlights and congratulations!
