Monique & Sal – The Philadelphia Engagement Session!

Meet Monique & Sal!! Their wedding will be on the beach in Sunny Florida, so for their Engagement Session I got to shoot this Gorgeous couple in their old stomping ground, Old City Philadelphia. I fell for them instantly but how could I not with a smile like Monique’s?! My favorite part of the session would have to be when they took me up to the Ben Franklin Bridge. It was a first for me and it had such an amazing view of the city. Great spot guys! My second favorite part would have to be watching the two of them roll around in the grass across from Independence Hall. Congratulations guys! I know you’re wedding is going to be stunning!

Sarah & Buddy – The Philadelphia Engagement Session!

Meet Sarah & Buddy! How freaking cute are these two?! We met up at the Khyber Pass Pub in Old City for a beer and to talk about how crazy the last episode of Game of Thrones was…and yes it was crazy. After that it was time to explore Philadelphia. For their Engagement Session we went all over, from Market Street subway terminal to the beautifully graffitied alleyways of South Street. I have to say though, my favorite find would have to be the mural of the race horses under I95. Freakin LOVE it! They both did so good and I can’t even wait to shoot their wedding!
Check out the rest from the day.

Avital & Brian – The Philadelphia Engagement Teaser.

Here is a quick teaser from yesterday’s Engagement Session with Avital & Brian! We basically walked all over Philadelphia and Race St Pier was one of the last stops we made. It was pretty late and the sun had almost vanished but I cranked up the ISO and we had just enough sunset light to give it that warmth we needed. Check it out.

Bridget and Billy – The Wedding.

Meet Bridget and Billy. AKA. Make a Circle Make a Scene…More on that in a few. The wedding was held at St. Dorthy Church in Drexel Hill, just a few blocks away from Bridget’s childhood home, which is where we started the day. She, along with all 5 bridesmaids, her mother and her Man of Honor (That’s right, I said Man. It’s 2009!) all piled into her childhood bedroom to help her slip into something a little more bridelike. Lots of Aaaawwws and laughing and cute moments and all the while the look on Bridget’s face was priceless. I wouldn’t say it was nerves but more like an unbelievable excitement, like that night before your birthday look. She was ready.

The ceremony was beautiful and they had some amazing singers that could hands down sing for disney no question.

After the ceremony we met at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing and Limo/Vanned it over to the Love Park to shoot some portraits in front of the Love Statue. Now here is where the Make a Circle Make a Scene comes into play. There were 14 people in this wedding party including the Bride & Groom plus parents. We pulled up to the park and being the busy touristy area it is, there were many people already there taking pictures. The doors to the Limo/Van opened and out went all 14, spreading out with a mission because we only had 20 minutes left with the limo guy. Within 30 seconds the area was cleared of everyone and the floor was ours for the taking! A crowd formed and we did our thing, I grabbed a lot of really nice images and that’s when it happened. It wasn’t the first time and it absolutely wasn’t the last. The circle…the scene…they started chanting ‘Make a circle make a scene!!’ and surrounded Bridget and Billy and while screaming and causing one extremely large commotion, they commanding everyone’s attention in a 4 block radius. (Example Pictured Below) Bottom line was they were having a blast and it was making me laugh so two thumbs up for that.

Back at the Hyatt, Bridget, Billy, Michael (The man of Honor/Brigit appointed assistant) took a walk down the long pier that ran the waterfront, where we got some really nice shots with the Ben Franklin Bridge and the city in the background. Then finally it was time to party it up with and really enjoy the night, which I assure you they did. I have proof. Here are some of my favorites from the day.

His turn! He couldn’t have fought them off if he tried.
