A little love from a client.

Just a few months ago I shot a family session in Princeton, NJ and my clients, Michael & Karen, just sent me a sweet thank you in the mail! Knowing my love of T-Shirts they sent me this awesome one and I love it! I’m not saying that every client should do this but it does make me love you more…and I’m a large. πŸ™‚

Thanks Michael & Karen!!!

The Brooks – Princeton Family Portraits.

Meet the Brooks Family! I met Michael when I lived in NC, on my first day in film school. There was absolutely a friendly rivalry going on between us, throughout that first semester. He is crazy talented and has a razor sharp wit and I feel lucky after all these years to say that he and his wife Karen are like family to me. Almost a year ago they had their beautiful baby girl Lily and I’m telling you right now, she is going to break some hearts when she gets older.
They were in NJ not too long ago visiting family and asked if I would shoot them while they were in town. Heck yes! We met up in Princeton, NJ and shot all along the campus. Check out some of my favorites from the day.

Haley & Aubrey – The Wedding.

Meet Haley & Aubrey. The wedding was held at the Pump House Bed & Breakfast in Bloomsburg, PA which is this quaint little B&B in the middle of the woods. Right next to the ceremony flowed a beautiful creek and all throughout the grounds ran multiple cats that would come right up to you for some love. All in all it was a really cool place to say I Do!

Megan & Brendan – The Wedding.

Meet Megan & Brendan! I love a couple who is into taking pictures and with this couple (specifically Megan) we could do this daily. I don’t believe she has ever met a camera she didn’t like. πŸ™‚ They were married at Saint Bridget Church in Philadelphia, PA. This was a full catholic mass and even at the alter she was ready for her closeup! After our amazing 3 hours of picture time around the city we headed to the reception which was held at the City Avenue Hilton Hotel.

Susan & David – The Photo Booth!

For Susan & David’s Wedding they had a Photo Booth Setup which I offer as an add on to my wedding packages. This includes a two light setup with your choice of background and a butt-kickin second photographer to coax the crazy out of you and your guests. There are tons of props to choose from, including wigs, hats, masks, glasses, boas and well more… Also there are a couple dry erase boards in cool shapes for your guests to say what’s on their mind πŸ™‚
Check out a couple of my favorites from their wedding.


Some behind the scenes of David telling Solomon how Silly he Looked πŸ™‚


I’m pretty sure the double tie looks is going to be huge this year.


These little girls lived at the photo booth for about 2 hours.

Susan & David – The Wedding.

Meet Susan & David. We started the day over at the Hotel Dupont in the business district of downtown Wilmington, Delaware. When I walked in, Susan was just about to hop into the makeup chair and she was watching the flower girls who were being pampered by the hairstylist. After some beautiful getting ready shots and we headed over to The Congregation Beth Shalom Synagogue for some First Look time (which you know I love!) and of course the ceremony. One of my favorite shots from the day was right after the ceremony when David’s son Solomon came up to the couple for a hug. Such a great moment and So, So Sweet! The reception was held at Brantwyn Estate which is a fantastic venue and really puts together a fancy party. I could have spent all day shooting the couple on these grounds.

ADORABLE.

Carla & Joe – The Wedding.

Meet Carla & Joe. The were married in Northern Liberties in Philadelphia at Cescaphe Ballroom. The day started out kinda rainy but we totally lucked out when it was time to shoot the portraits. Right after the emotional First Look, we stepped outside to the cobblestone streets of old city to find the sun beaming down through the trees. Cut to me jumping up and down with excitement and practically running to the spot I wanted to shoot πŸ™‚
Check out some of my favorite shots of the day below but before you do let me tell you about their wedding favors. A donation was made to the American Cancer Society and to the Center for Childhood Cancer Research for CHOP. What better present can you give than one that will help a child beat this? This is something very close to Carla & Joe’s heart and I for one give them major points for being so selfless.


Lover’s Leap?
