Ridley Creek State Park Engagement, Pennsylvania: Joe + Amy

Joe and Amy wanted a gorgeous location for their engagement photos with lots of greenery and somewhere their pups could enjoy as well. They came up with the gorgeous Ridley Creek State Park in Pennsylvania and I'm so glad they did! The Hunting Hill Mansion at Ridley Creek State Park, is now used as a wedding venue, and my goodness, how could you go wrong with such a stunning backdrop? Amy and Joe are so much fun to be around- joking every minute, so grabbing smiles was not an issue! Cheers to Amy and Joe’s gorgeous Ridley Creek engagement session!

Super Bowl Sunday: Philadelphia Love

I'll admit, I'm not a huge football fan, but you know what I am a fan of? The community sharing in something special. It's been so much fun to watch my daughters' preschool chanting for the Eagles, to hear the Eagles' Victory Song being played on the organ at church, and getting ready to gather with family for good food and good times. So here's the best tribute I've got- Go Eagles!

Spruce Street Harbor Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Engagement: Parker and Jaclyn

On a Sunday evening in July, I met with Parker and Jaclyn in Philadelphia. The plan was to shoot in some of the most meaningful places to them including Penn's Landing and Downey's (where they had their first date). The city was bustling with visitors, delicious-smelling food in the air, and gorgeous colored lights as we stumbled upon Spruce Street Harbor. We found gorgeous flowers, hugely colorful ships and (the best) a mural of Mario (and Luigi) near a small arcade. Parker and Jaclyn stopped at a pop-up beer garden for a glass of their favorite brew as we started our way back towards Penn's Landing. I love the way that Parker makes Jaclyn laugh- I'm sure he's become quite the expert in this when they first started began dating in their long-distance relationship. As clouds rolled in, Jaclyn reminded me that she would definitely be okay with a few shots in the rain, and that it was actually encouraged! We managed to get a couple of shots between the rain drops before the thunder began. I'm so excited to have photographed their engagement! I love to get to know my couples so that on their wedding day, I'm not just a stranger, but a friend, ready to document their day. Their day is coming up really soon- just under two months!

Manayunk Engagement: Paula and Frank

When I pulled up to Paula and Frank's home in Manayunk, I immediately saw a field of sunflowers- I felt like a hit the jackpot! I knew we would definitely be venturing out to the sea of golden goodness during our session. Paula and Frank are a power couple- both engineers, engaged, living in the cutest and hippest town of Manayunk and both so incredibly caring- their future is bright together. We walked downtown to some of their favorite spots, along the water, sunflowers, and bridges to document their engagement. I'm so very excited for their July wedding at Water Works in Philadelphia.

Fox Hill Farm Wedding, Honesdale, Pennsylvania: Jamie and Marissa

Early on a Saturday morning, with our families in tow, we left for Honesdale, Pennsylvania to photograph Marissa and Jamie's wedding. The wedding was at the gorgeous Fox Hill Farm, where every detail has been thought out, not to mention the flowers everywhere and the mountain view.  Jamie and Marissa decided on a First Look so we could capture their family portraits before their ceremony. JUST as the First Look was wrapping up, the skies opened up and it downpoured. These brides were so calm about it! We ran for cover, grabbed umbrellas and kept shooting! The rain continued for a while, so we found a cozy greenhouse for more photos of the brides, and finally, the skies cleared in time for the ceremony. Their ceremony took place just feet from a lake, overlooking the barn/reception area. Towards the end of the ceremony, Jamie surprised Marissa by singing her a song, and had even passed out the lyrics for everyone participating in the ceremony to join along. It was such a sweet touch! On the way to the reception, we snuck into a fenced off area where the cows are kept. (How cool is that?) We were at the highest point of the farm, and from there we had gorgeous sunset colors with a touch of fog. The reception started off with heart-felt speeches and continued with dancing in the barn. The string lights and barn decor was simply amazing. Congratulations Mrs. and Mrs. Place!

Ocean City, NJ Wedding, The Flanders Hotel: Don and Tracy

When I pulled into The Flanders on Tracy and Don's wedding day, I saw a man wearing a shirt that said, "I can't keep calm, my daughter is getting married!" I knew that (a) I was in the right place and (b) this wedding was going to be awesome! We found Tracy getting her finishing touches done at Divine Images Salon, inside the Flanders Hotel. We headed up to her room for her getting ready and saw the cutest assortment of bridesmaid dresses (I love when bridesmaids pick out their own dresses!) and the most adorable Maid of Honor dress. Tracy's MOH was her gorgeous, adorable, and very witty daughter, G. After Tracy was ready (and so stunning, might I add), it was time to head to the Crystal Ballroom in The Flanders Hotel for the ceremony. I love the ease of having everything in one venue- it makes it easy for the guests to have everything within walking distance! After a heartfelt ceremony, we headed onto the boardwalk for bridal party and bride and groom photos. We got traditional walking down the Ocean City boardwalk photos, visited Playland Castaway Cove to visit the rides, and to Hamburger Construction Company (a special place to Tracy and Don). We even made it back to The Flanders Hotel in time for Don and Tracy to enjoy some of cocktail hour. After fun introductions from Over the Top, they went into their first dance, followed by speeches. G (the cutest MOH) gave the best speech and set the bar high for all MOH's after her! Don, Tracy, and G- congratulations!

Knowlton Mansion, Philadelphia, PA Wedding: Carl + Julia

When I think of Carl and Julia, I think "pure romance." I know so much of their story, because over the course of wedding planning, I became super close with Julia- so I'm going to list some reasons why I think they have such an amazing story.

-They grew up in the same neighborhood. Their moms are best friends!

-When Carl proposed, he set up an elaborate scavenger hunt that involved their grade school teacher, multiple family members, and of course, a stunning diamond.

-While Carl was overseas serving in the Army as a pilot, he made sure to send Julia flowers every month on their anniversary.

-They both ended their wedding vows with the same sentence.

To sum it up, they are absolutely perfect for each other. Their rustic/bohemian wedding at Knowlton Mansion, was the culmination of their relationship and I think everyone in the room was so happy to see them reunited at last, after a long eleven months apart. Thank you Carl for your service and thanks to Carl AND Julia for being just absolutely adorable and hilarious.
