Kim and Mike – Proposal in Washington Sqaure

Sweethearts Kim and Mike are extremely adorable and I was honored to capture such a special moment for them.  It was early in the morning and I was photographing “the park” when these two walked up and had a seat on the bench. Thinking that they were just waiting to go to breakfast with a friend, Kim was shocked as Mike dropped down to one knee. The expression on here face says it all. Luckily, she was so caught up in the moment that she didn’t even realize that I was getting closer and closer to get these pictures allowing the true happiness of the moment to shine through. We then walked around the square taking these lovely images of the soon-to-be-wed pair. Seeing this intimate moment and having the opportunity to capture it for all of time reminds me of just how wonderful my job really is. Thank you Kim and Mike for this beautiful shoot and congratulations on your engagement!

Elizabeth and David – Wedding at The Racquet Club of Philadelphia

Elizabeth came to me quite relaxed and willing to let me express my creativity by capturing her and her new husband on their very special day. Her trust in me as an artist and photographer coupled with the gorgeous rooms of the Racquet Club of Philadelphia and some very happy people allowed not only for these beautiful photos below, but also for quite a shindig of a wedding. Elizabeth and David are a very fun loving couple and that was magnified enormously in the many smiling faces of this very fun and elegant wedding. Enjoy this little glimpse of the newlywed’s magnificent day!

XOXO

Katie and Greg – Engagement at Hibernia Park

I had a blast photographing Katie and Greg at Hibernia Park. We caught the leaves just after they had changed and I think the beautiful colors here speak for themselves. Everything at this park, even the couple, was picture perfect. We even caught  the glowing “golden light” sun. We trekked a great area catching many of the unique areas of the park. It was quite adventurous and I lost a shoe! But, it was well worth it to capture the love between these two young souls. Congrats you two and I hope you adore your pictures!

Sara and Kirk – Center City Engagement

Sara and Kirk were a really fun couple to photograph. Both originally from Minnesota, these two plan on wedding there next year. This was a traveling shoot throughout Center City and ending with a drink and some darts at The Bards. So with the scenery constantly changing we were able to get a very dynamic range of photographs, not to mention these two are modeling pros! What’s even more, they brought along their locally known dog, Sota(named after their home state and known as Sunflower to those in the neighborhood), making this shoot just oh so adorable. I hope you enjoy these highlights from their shoot and congratulations to the soon-to-be-wed couple!

Caroline and Michael – Washington Crossing State Park Engagement

These two were so sweet and a pleasure to photograph. We happened to meet up on the most gorgeous fall weekend and Caroline and Michael were so comfortable in front of the lens that this photo shoot was a breeze. You can just tell, when everything is so perfect that there is something right going on here. Maybe it’s in Caroline’s gleaming smile, in Michael’s gentle embrace of his fiance,  or in the couple’s constant laughter. Wherever it comes from, you can see it. These two are truly, and deeply in love. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next year and to see how they have grown together.

Enjoy this little glimpse of their “soon- to-be-married” world!

Engagement – Amanda and Joe – Tyler State Park

I had a blast photographing this couple! Amanda and Joe are two of the giggliest people I have ever met. Laughing and joking throughout the whole shoot I could just tell that these two know how to have fun and that they truly enjoy each other’s company. It is as clear as day when you are around Amanda and Joe that they truly love each other and it was perhaps mere coincidence that we also had this beautiful, clear, sunny day to capture their love. What’s more, it is already flattering for a couple to come to me for their engagement shoot, but it is all the more flattering when asked by a fellow photographer. Amanda is a photographer herself and I was overjoyed when she asked me to photograph her and Joe. Check out Amanda’s photography here!

Enjoy these photographs of young love birds, Amanda and Joe.

 

XOXO

Nikki and Jay – Engagement Dance Party

Nikki and Jay are a fun loving couple soon to be married in Las Vegas. Since the destination is so far away and all of their friends and family won’t be able to make it they decided to have a huge engagement party right here at home. The excitement of the night was certainly dancing. Everyone danced the night away in the adorable event venue Chez Nicole. It was certainly a blast and fun was had by all. Here is a selection of some of my favorite dancing shots from the night. Check out some of these dance moves, these people have skills and rhythm!

Danielle and Ben – Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

 

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to shoot my friend Danielle’s wedding at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I’ve known her since high school and I will always remember her as one of the nicest and most considerate people that I have had the pleasure of calling my friend. When she asked me to photograph her wedding I could only return her the favor by driving all the way out to Pittsburgh to be a part of her big day. Everything was great! Her parents did an amazing job throwing a fun and beautiful wedding at a GORGEOUS location. Danielle was glowing as can be seen in these beautiful photos. I thank her so much for allowing me to take part in the whole experience and I congratulate her as well on her new marriage to the dance loving Ben. Please enjoy these photos as much as I had fun shooting them! I dare you!

Mother Daughter Love – Philadelphia Photographer

I’ve known Jihan for some time now and it was an absolute pleasure to photograph her and her daughter. She is the kind of woman who is so warm hearted and always willing to help a friend in need that it was impossible not to say yes to this shoot. She has definitely passed on her good genes to her daughter seeing as she was such a sweetie too! We had a great time with this project prancing around the Philadelphia Art Museum area and playing in all it’s nooks and crannies. These two shined at this shoot and it shows!
