We love New York.  We were in the Big Apple for less than two days, but packed in a tons fun and an awesome wedding.  In the true style of The City That Never Sleeps, we hit the original P.J. Clarke’s for a top-notch late night dinner (and quite possibly the best whiskey sour ever),  Death & Co. in the East Village for handcrafted prohibition era cocktails, and a rainy “after hours” tour of Times Square. Shooting Sara and Adam’s incredible wedding at Studio 450 was the icing on the cake.  You may remember Sara and Adam from their engagement session in Central Park last October. We were really excited to come back to the city for their big day. Many thanks to my second Lauren for capturing so many incredible images with me.  Check out some highlights!


Most of the time we are out shooting newly engaged couples or weddings.  Every now and then we get to capture some photos for couples that are hitting milestones!  Meet David and Missy.  They have been married five years!  We hooked up on Tuesday evening to capture some portraits to commemorate the occasion.  Gring’s Mill park in Wyomissing, PA is where they take their walks and talk their talks so it was the perfect place to do it.  View some highlights below!  Congrats guys.

Bright sun and unseasonably sultry temperatures lent themselves perfectly to this southern themed wedding. The programs were printed on paper fans and guests kept cool sipping from custom engraved copper mugs.  The drinks were southern themed and South Carolina’s palmetto tree could be found on everything from cufflinks to party games.  We thought these two must be from the South, but learned it is not where they are from, but where they intend to go.  Adam and Mike were married at the amazing Welkinweir in Pottstown, PA.  The venue was perfect.  From the old stone wall enclosed ceremony grounds and the charming spring house, to the surrounding forest and historic estate house overlooking a beautiful valley and stream.  Fill an incredible venue like that with an amazing set of friends and family and you have yourself a pretty incredible wedding.  Special thanks to my second shooter Lauren for capturing some awesome images with me.  Check out some highlights below!

You may remember this cute couple from an engagement session in Manayunk earlier this year.  Jackie and Aaron had a bluegrass band.  That should be about all that has to be said to demonstrate how awesome these two are together.  Couple that with some old friends, good beer and a lot of incredible family and you’ve got yourself a pretty neat wedding.  We had a ton of fun following these guys around and seeing some familiar faces.  Special thanks to Lauren for helping me capture this one.  Many of her images are featured below.  Enjoy some highlights!

One of the coolest things about being a photographer is getting to work outdoors.  Last week we got to spend a few hours with Alyssa, Zach and Ghost exploring the Wissahickon Creek area.  It was amazing weather and somehow we managed to have the trail almost all to ourselves!  We met Alyssa during an engagement session for one of our favorite couples Sarah and Dan a long time ago as she acted as dog wrangler for their session at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  We met again at Sarah and Dan’s wedding and now are just a little less than 100 days away from shooting Alyssa and Zach’s big day.  Awesomeness.  Enjoy some highlights from their engagement!
