DUKE ART GALLERY WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

Regina & Ryan are truly an inspiration couple! They are smart, kind, down-to-earth, well-traveled, and genuinely amazing people to be around. I loved getting to know them during their engagement having the honor of photographing their unique wedding this past fall. With friends and family the new Mr. and Mrs. Brown said I do and then celebrated all night at their Duke Art Gallery Wedding. Thank you for having me as a part of your beautiful day!

HOTEL DUPONT WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

There is something that I love about self-proclaimed “awkward” couples! Alex and Erik claimed to be awkward in front of the camera but really they were sweet and fun. We first met at my studio and was so glad when they chose me as their photographer – they were definitely people I knew I would love to work with. Knowing that their December would be artificially lit due to the early sunset, we tried to have a sunny engagement session but instead were met with overcast skies. Regardless, we had a great time exploring Valley Forge Park together! Their day was a bit rainy and cold but inside their Hotel DuPont wedding everything was perfect! The formal Christmas wedding was absolutely stunning. Every inch of the venue was a dream to work in just as Alex & Erik were, even in all of their “awkwardness”. Congratulations Alex & Erik! It was an honor to photograph your day!

FORBIDDEN DRIVE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

Better late than never when it comes to sharing this post! Christine and Devon are one of my wonderful couples for 2019! They will be tying the knot next to very close friends and family this spring at the Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia. We squeezed in their engagement session in Fairmount Park along Forbidden Drive this past fall. Forbidden Drive might be in the middle of Philadelphia but to myself and Christine, it was a bit more nature than we were used to. Luckily Devon knew his way around and managed to move some branches and logs for our photos, and also warned me when I was getting too close to poison ivy! We certainly had a lot of laughs during our little adventure and I can’t wait to see them get married in a few short months!

SMITHVILLE MANSION FAMILY SESSIONS

By | Family | No Comments

This past fall I had the pleasure of photographing so many wonderful families! I love working in my studio but you just can’t pass up the gorgeous colors that fall has to offer so I was able to photograph many of my sessions at Smithville Mansion in Mt. Holly. This post shares a few photos from three different families each with their own unique qualities. Even though the backdrop might have been the same for many of the photos, the personalities vary so much. I look forward to each fall because in between weddings I get to see so many past clients that return yearly for updated photos. Enjoy!

THE INN AT LAMBERTVILLE STATION WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

My career in photography has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people. If it wasn’t for Kara, a friend and fellow photographer, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to photograph Christina and Scott’s wedding at the Inn at Lambertville Station in New Jersey this past October. Christina is incredibly sweet and is Kara’s sister. Scott is sarcastic and funny but I know deep down had a soft side. Scott insisted that since this was their second marriage, it wouldn’t be like a traditional wedding and I reminded him of that comment while we waited for Christina to make her appearance at their first look! Like most second weddings Christina and Scott wanted most of the focus to be on family. We took so many family photos which I hope will be treasured by everyone for years to come.

GROUNDS FOR SCULPTURE WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

Lexi and Hank celebrated their new marriage alongside close friends and family for an intimate morning wedding at the Grounds for Sculpture. The weather was questionable for their morning outdoor ceremony but the sun eventually came out in perfect timing for Lexi and Hank to say “I do”. After the ceremony the new bride and groom took the time to personally see each guest before taking photos of their new combined family. Rat’s Restaurant welcomed everyone to a lovely brunch where a few close friends and even Lexi’s son, gave heartfelt toasts wishing happiness to the newlyweds.

CHRISTMAS PHOTO MINI SESSIONS

By | Family, Kids | No Comments

I am so excited to finally share more of the beautiful Christmas photos that took were made in my South Jersey studio this season. These mini sessions took place in late November and early December to ensure plenty of time for my clients to order cards and gifts. Now that Christmas is just a few short days away and I know I won’t be ruining any surprises here, I’ll share some of my favorites from two days of sessions.

I’m still playing catch up with some blog posts from the fall but for now this is my last post for 2018! Thank you from the bottom of heart to all of my clients who made this year so amazing. I met my goals for the year thanks to all of you that have trusted me with your memories. Sometimes it is difficult to move on to a new year when the one that passed has been so good to me and my family, but I know there is nothing to do but move forward and continue growing in this business. I am looking forward to 2019 and as always I hope it was be as amazing, if not more, than this past year. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

SWARTHMORE COLLEGE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

I have been so excited to share this engagement session at Swarthmore College! Stephanie and Steve just got engaged this past fall and are in the process of planning their wedding. They were a blast to work with! We laughed throughout their whole session while we wandered the campus at Swarthmore, uncovering great locations for photos. If the sun hadn’t completely disappeared at the end of our time I would have never even guessed we blew threw the entire hour long session. I kind of love that I’m just sharing these photos now even though the gallery was delivered several weeks ago because these two and their genuine happiness, silliness, and love for each other just bring a smile to my face! Enjoy!

JG DOMESTIC WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

I have so many favorites from Chelsea and Tony’s wedding! Their day was a bit hectic due to some crazy traffic in the city but when you have a bride like Chelsea that has every gorgeous detail planned perfectly a little traffic is no big deal. The new Mr. and Mrs. had the most gorgeous sunny day for their wedding and celebrated alongside close friends and family at JG Domestic in Philadelphia. Garces Events ran the whole day perfectly as well as all of the other vendors that Chelsea and Tony chose for their day! Enjoy!

HAMILTON MANOR WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

Sometimes  I struggle with what to write in these blog posts and the main reason is because I just can’t repeat how awesome a couple is, over and over again. So I sit here just thinking that Ashley and Dan are awesome and I can’t come up with anything else to say that would do any justice. Their Hamilton Manor wedding was full of all of the moments you want to see during a wedding – emotion, laughter, hilarious antics from family members, and mummer umbrellas. Let’s just start with the bridal prep where everyone had Mean Girls themed shirts on. Amazing. Then we got to Ashley’s first look with her dad complete with high fives. On to the ceremony where Ashley’s sister and maid of honor was a tad overzealous when it came to fluffing the dress but had us all cracking up about it. And we can’t forget the reception where Ashley’s dad unbuttoned his dress shirt to reveal a Spiderman costume underneath and “webbed” everyone. I won’t even get into the hilariously inappropriate best man and maid of honor speeches! The day was overall gray and gloomy but left only the brightest and most cheerful memories. Congratulations Ashley and Dan!!
