Amber + Leni :: Philly Waterworks Wedding

Stunning. Smart. A whole lot of FUN.

It was a perfect day in sunny Philadelphia. Upon arriving to the bridal suite at the Palomar Hotel, we were greeted by some of the most gorgeous girls all decked out in pink. Amber was all smiles and beautifully dressed in all white with her cathedral veil. The suite was filled with fun music, pink dresses, gorgeous girls and champagne with pink straws for all! These girls had such a great vibe. The bridesmaids were so supportive and excited for Amber. The moment I first saw Amber’s dress my jaw dropped. As I went to hang it in the hallway of the hotel I had to stop and just take it in. Berta Bridal makes stunning wedding gowns and Amber was the perfect fit for this dress. I remember returning up stairs to put all of the details back in place for the bride when we noticed she was wearing her shoes. DOH! We had shot the mother of the brides shoes!! Luckily the bride and the mom were both amused by the ordeal. Down the hallway, Leni and the guys were packed into a much smaller room trying to figure out how to put on bow ties and prepare for the big day. Leni was looking super sharp in his Tom Ford coat in white. These two were going to blow each other away with their gorgeousness at their first look.

We made our way to the beautiful Waterworks Restaurant where the ceremony would take place as the sunset over the water. I must say that the vows from this wedding were some of the most sincere wordsI have ever heard. I forgot to be a photographer for a few moments. They both received a round of applause!!  The cocktail hour was full of beautiful sun as we went into the evening for the reception. The chandeliers were OMG beautiful. We loved all the beautiful candles, tree branches and sparkles. It was such a luxurious decor and had such a warm and welcoming feeling. The speeches were heartfelt and the celebration started soon after. These two love birds were ready to dance the night away and party with their amazing wedding party. The music kept everyone on their feet as they looked out over the water. It was a gorgeous and perfect night to live it up. And thats exactly what they did.

It was a whirlwind of awesomeness and we are so glad we were a part of this special day. Wishing you the best as we watch you start the best chapter of your lives.

xx

Leaha + Jeffrey

Stephanie + Scott :: Brooklyn Bridge Park Engagement

Sweet. Genuine. Adorable.

Brooklyn has never been more beautiful. Sunny 71 degrees and bustling with kids and people taking photos of the perfect NYC view. This happy couple came floating around the corner with smiles and a big hug ready! They were warm and friendly just like all teachers should be. The Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of my favorite places to shoot. The sunsets here are the best and the views are unbelievable. On this specific pier you get the Brooklyn Bridge on your left and the Manhattan Bridge on your right. There is also the best pizza joints to grab some food and Jane’s Carousel to make you feel like a kid again. We took full advantage of all of these things!

We really enjoyed our time with Stephanie and Scott. Two teachers in love. Absolutely adorable couple and we are so excited to shoot their wedding, too!

Jillian + Arthur :: Atlantic City Boardwalk Engagement

Energetic. Spirited. All smiles.

It was our first time in Atlantic City. Casinos line the boardwalk where the people fill the beaches for the last bit of warm weather.

Meeting couples for the first time is always a little nerve wracking. You want to make a good impression. You want to connect and establish a friendship. That is the beauty of the engagement session. I can honestly say this is the first time we have met a couple in a casino! I was coming up the escalator in the Tropicana Casino as they were about to come down the opposing escalator. I pointed and yelled “Hey, there’s my bride and groom!”. The energy from these two is magnetic. We all instantly connected right there in the middle of all the casino chaos. Happy, happy, happy. These two are HAPPY! We were so happy to finally meet them face to face.

New Jersey has had a very mild summer. It’s almost felt like Spring for 4 months! Mother Nature decided to change things up and it was a blistering 90 degrees with 85% humidity. You would never be able to tell how hot it really was by looking at these two love birds. The wind, the humidity, the heat- it all added up to H.O.T. This had to be one of the craziest sessions we have shot. Why, you ask?

1. The storms held off until we were finished shooting! Yeah!

2. We asked a man for leftover pizza to feed to the birds. He looked at me funny, but gave the bread anyways. HA!

3. A Hookah Bar let us come into their white pillow wonderland to shoot !

4. We found a cool Life Guard Boat on the beach that was a perfect prop!

5. The sunset was absolutely PERFECT for the last 10 minutes of the shoot before the storm rolled in.

6. We found a towel to wash & dry our feet off after being covered in sand. I know that seems weird, but have you ever tried washing and drying your feet as you get off the beach? Thank you Mr. Towel.

 

Cheers to these two love birds.
