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!
Check out some of my favorites from the day.
Meet Alyson & Charlie! They were married in Long Beach Island on the beautiful balcony of a family home and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. I met the couple through one of my 2009 weddings, Samantha & Kyle, and let me tell you it was an instant connection. It was like we had been friends for years and it really translated so well in the images. I’ll say it again and again, having a photographer that you connect with and trust is the most important thing when choosing someone to take part in your day and thankfully I was the guy for them! After the intimate ceremony at Charlie’s parent’s ocean-front house, we ran down to the beach to kick off our shoes and shoot some formals. My favorite was when they asked for an image of the wedding party’s reaction to being attacked by Godzilla! (How could I not love these people!?!)
From there we crossed over to the harbor side of the island where the wedding party boarded two boats and sailed a few miles down the island to the Reception spot. When they arrived, they were greeted by all their friends and family on the backyard dock of a fantastic beach house donated for the night by close friends of the family. Everything from the food, which was prepared by Charlie’s Mother & Brother, to the energetic DJ’s who put on one hell of a show, made this night unforgettable. Another favorite moment, other than Charlie ripping his pants on the dance floor, was when Alyson’s father smoked the very same type of cigar that he smoked on the day she was born. It was on the roof deck of the enormous house and as we looked down at the festivities you could just see how proud he was to be her father.
Here are some of my favorites from the day.
Meet Kristin & Brian. We decided to kick off their engagement shoot with a homemade Oreo Shake at The Franklin Fountain, located in Old City in Philadelphia. If you know me, you know I’m the first one to run for the ice cream truck when that jingle hits the wind. So when Brian suggested this spot, I was on board before I finished reading the sentence. It was a great start to an afternoon of hanging out with this awesome couple. Check out some of my favorites from the day.
Meet Kate & Howie. They are going to be married in about three months and counting and I am stoked to shoot their wedding! Howie is not at all scared to get crazy and be a goofy, just to make Kate laugh and it’s written all over her face just how much she loves him. Check out some of my favorites.
Meet Kristin & Eric. For their engagement session we met up at Ridley Creek State Park for a few shots at the historic mansion they have on the grounds. Then we headed down to one of their favorite hiking trails and in my head I was thinking, yeah I totally got this. It seems I’m out of shape…or at least I am compared to these two. I’d love to say it was because it was crazy hot out or because I was carrying all my gear, actually that’s exactly what I’ll say. 🙂 Thankfully we had an awesome session and even though I looked a wreck, I had a great time hanging out with these two. Here are some of my favorites from the day.
PS: I went back to the gym and I totally want a rematch…just sayin.
