Sinclair + Pat // Backyard Shore Wedding Mantaloking, NJ

There is just so much I loved about Sinclair and Pat’s backyard wedding. From the compass escort cards to the larger than life peonies, and the unbeatable scenery. From the first time we spoke, I knew Sinclair and Pat were my kindred spirits. Their wedding day mirrored so much of Adam and I’s own wedding day, there was no way we couldn’t work together. It was meant to be.

I always like when a couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day to be as private as I can make it. It’s the only time of the day you can be alone even for 5 minutes and take it all in. As much as I tried to find a little secluded spot for Sinclair and Pat, Sinclair’s dad happened to just come back from the beach at just the right time, so obviously we had him jump in for a photo as soon as they saw each other. ;)

The ceremony took place in a little old church built in 1889 a few blocks from her families home and everyone walked back over to Sinclair’s grandparents home for the party. In the meantime, we took a boat ride for some more photos and arrived to cocktail hour in style. Under a gorgeous white tent surrounded by the ocean on a beautiful June evening, these two celebrated their love with their family and friends in the best way. There were some incredible dancers out there and Sinclair’s grandfather set off a canon at sunset! What an amazing day.

    Maria + Jill // Spring Farmhouse Wedding Hamilton Manor

    If I had to choose two people who are perfectly matched for each other in every way, it would be Maria and Jill. Their love is the kind of love that moves mountains. It gives us all hope for the future. It aches deep in your heart when you see the way they look at each other. The way they respect and take care of each other. Lord I could go on and on about how their love makes me feel, you’d think it was my wedding day and I married them both. I feel like I did anyway haha!

    Jill’s reaction when she saw Maria walk down the aisle made me ugly cry so fast I had to check myself. THAT right there, is the overflowing of love you can’t put into words.  Listening to the toasts from Maria’s sister Dom and Jill’s brother Cody made their love story all the more real to me. I love hearing how my couples meet and how they fell in love and how sometimes real life can get in the way. It happens to us all. They have had some insane obstacles to overcome in their lives and they’ve accomplished so much individually and together. It’s funny to think they fought it for as long as they did because it’s obvious to all of us that they were meant to be. Plain and simple. That is the love you spend your whole life wishing and hoping and fighting for and man do these women deserve every last drop of it.

    Maria and Jill – you have change my life in a way I can’t describe. Thank you. THANK YOU for bringing me into your intimate world and sharing it all, eyes and hearts wide open. Never be afraid to be vulnerable with each other. Never take each other for granted. And never EVER lose that love we can all see when you see each other <3 XOXO

      Lauren + Ben // Industrial Chic La Peg Philadelphia Wedding

      My Humans got Married! 

      Lauren and Ben’s industrial chic wedding affair is easily one of my all time favorite wedding days EVER in the history of weddings. I was introduced to these amazing humans by Meg + Brandon. You may remember their hurricane wedding in Avalon a couple years ago. ;) Lauren and Ben’s gorgeous ceremony, (thanks to my ladies at Papertini), was at La Peg overlooking the Ben Franklin Bridge. Seriously one of the coolest venues in Philadelphia!

      Their studly puppy Parker was with us at their engagement session in Fishtown and also made a cameo on Lauren and Ben’s wedding invitations! He showed up for a few portraits at Race Street Pier too. I mean, he’s pretty fabulous BUT his humans were stunning us all with Ben’s custom suit and Lauren’s modern fitted gown and blue Manolo’s. That’s right. FIRE, people.

      Ben’s reaction to seeing Lauren on their wedding day melted our hearts. I’m also a little obsessed with Lauren, I can’t lie. Did you SEE her? With the Ketubah signed, and light bulb smashed, Ben decided to surprise Lauren with another diamond band right after their ceremony! WHAT?! Who IS this man, am I right??

      We danced the night away while these two rocked it on stage with their band. A pizza truck AND a popsicle truck spent the evening feeding us all the deliciousness under a beautifully lit night in Philly. Can’t beat it.

      Christina + Matt // Rustic Barn Wedding Brandywine Manor House

      Who doesn’t love a rustic barn wedding?! Christina and Matt’s rainy and foggy wedding day was not what they had envisioned I’m sure but, it made for some beautiful backdrops for their photos! Their rustic Brandywine Manor House wedding was absolutely wonderful- rain and all! Rain on your wedding day leads to a warm and glowy reception with friends and family at Brandywine Manor House.

      Christina and Matt came to me through a long line of couples I’ve photographed over the past few years who are all good friends. I love seeing them all again at every couple’s wedding I photograph!

      Dance in the Rain

      So it rained most of the day and some of our plans went awry as rain tends to do. But man, it didn’t change a thing for the first time they saw each other. Christina has her father’s smile and laugh. Matt, you and Zach were too fun to hang out with on your wedding day! I couldn’t ask for a better couple to spend the day with. So thankful for you bringing us into your lives and welcoming us as friends! To dance in the rain with me, feel free to contact me by clicking here.

        Lauren + Deric // Velvet Luxury Wedding at the Ashford Estate

        I can’t say enough about these images from Lauren and Deric’s wedding day! From the velvet luxury feel of the floral decor to the gorgeous setting at The Ashford Estate. We were living the dream during their Ashford Estate wedding day!

        The Perfect Day

        This Fall day was just dripping with decadence and rich, vibrant plums and golds and greenery. Lauren’s dad was kind enough to let us use his vintage Rolls Royce for some of their photos. He fixed up the car with his father growing up and it’s been in their family forever. Such a special gift for when Lauren and Deric saw each other for the first time on their wedding day! Part of what I love most about photographing couples on their wedding day is the families stories and heirlooms that will be gifted to their children and grandchildren. Every aspect is a special touch they’ll have forever.

        The Ceremony

        What a beautiful intimate ceremony in the barn followed by cocktails, dinner, and dancing. That warm Fall light was like butter for my eyes *all the heart eye emoji’s* I just can’t get enough! To see more butter for your eyes, click here to see more of my work on my blog!
