We met Donna and Angelo in Old City this evening and wondered.  Leading up to the shoot we were expecting to hear a story of why were shooting in Old City.  Turns out Donna just googled the spot.  Elfreth’s Alley.  Our nation’s oldest residential street.  It was pretty special.  Then we just followed the light. We’re pretty thrilled with where it took us.

We have been watching Laura blog stalk for a while now.  We were excited to meet up at the Norristown Farm Park in Norristown, PA and put a face to the name.  She brought a pretty cool dude with her.  We talk to all of our clients about what they do outside of work just to get to know them.  A lot of the time we end up talk about Game of Thrones.  These two lovebirds hunt bears with arrows.  It made for interesting conversation.  They will win in the zombie apocalypse.  Enjoy a few photos from our evening.

We learned a few things on Saturday.  It can be 80 degrees in October.  Everyone should bring their puppy to visit their wedding.  And giant glowing things make all people happy.  We spent the day with Ashlee and Jim in Orwigsburg, PA.  It was awesome.  We have captured a bunch of weddings at the Schuylkill Country Club and it always a pleasure to come back.  Check out some highlights!



If you have been blog stalking you have been pretty busy!  This is blog #3 of the day and concludes the highlights from our triple wedding weekend.  We couldn’t have ended it on a better note.  Kelly and Mike were the perfect couple to conclude a 29 hour shooting weekend with.  The weather was perfect, the venue was beautiful and the company was just ready to have a great time.  If you have the option, we highly recommend the Historic Shady Lane in Manchester, PA.  It was a pretty neat place.  Somewhere between rustic and modern.  Kelly and Mike tied the knot outside in front of the greenhouse and partied into the night under the tent on the edge of the property.  Check out some highlights.  We think you’ll enjoy them!

“Flow gently, sweet Afton! amang thy green braes, Flow gently, I’ll sing thee a song in thy praise.”  The opening lines of a beautiful Robert Burns poem.  This was the only other time we had ever heard the name Afton!  Welcome to part two of our three wedding weekend blog posts.  Meet Afton and Derek.  We were super excited to capture this one.  We met Afton through her sister Brittony.  Brittony is a fellow parent at Lauren and my children’s preschool.  Brittony also happens to be a great photographer and insisted we capture her sister’s big day.  We are happy she did!  They were married in the gardens of the Reading Public Museum and celebrated at the amazing Reading Art Works.  Much of the morning was spent watching the sky drizzle on everything and everyone wondering whether hurricane Matthew was going to spoil the outdoor garden ceremony.  The prospect of rain didn’t slow these two love birds down.  We charged ahead and the rain cleared up.  Everything was perfect.  Special thanks go out to Lauren for helping me capture all of these moments.  What would we do without her?  Enjoy a sneak peak!
