Philadelphia Microweddings

By | Elopement, Weddings | No Comments

What was once going against tradition, Philadelphia microweddings, elopements, and intimate gatherings are about to become much more popular. Due to the recent coronavirus pandemic which has just left everyone’s lives upside down, the wedding industry has also taken a huge hit. I admit that I was very naive when this all began and thought that my early through mid-summer couples would not have been affected. Now as we near closer to June I know how wrong I was. At this point, I don’t know when my next full wedding will happen. Many of my couples plan on getting married on the day they originally had planned but in a much different way. I want to share a few things for my own couples and also for anyone planning a smaller wedding in the near future – and it’s all good!

In Philadelphia there are so many great places that accommodate couples looking for a smaller affair, such as the Hotel Palomar. In the heart of the city, Hotel Palomar offers an excellent location close to Rittenhouse and their library provides a perfect spot for a first look, or family photos. There are so many great places to get married in Philadelphia!

There is something so great and carefree about having a small wedding. You have the time to really talk with each of your guests while also having the freedom to really make sure that everyone gets photographed! No one gets lost in a small wedding.

And when no one gets lost in a small wedding, that also means that (depending the location) your pets can be included!

Time is on your side if you are planning to elope! Did you have your heart set on sunset photos? You have the freedom to really tailor your own timeline with a small wedding.

In the end, and what I always tell my couples, is that what truly matters is you are getting married! Things always go wrong on a wedding day – big or small. Of course no one expected for things to go wrong at this magnitude but what matters and why we’re all here in the first place, is for you to say “I do”!

Hyatt at the Bellevue Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

With  all of the talk about postponing weddings lately it seems fitting that Kaitlyn and  Rob’s Bellevue wedding is the next on the blog. These two successfully postponed their November 2019 wedding after a tragic car accident and were able to celebrate this past February, just three months later. In the end, the date didn’t matter for the newlyweds – only the fact they were happy and healthy, and able to have one hell of a party – mostly thanks to Lisa, their wedding coordinator at the Bellevue.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kaitlyn, Rob, and Kaitlyn’s parents in my studio to discuss their day and then photographed their engagement session on a beautiful spring day in old city. Their wedding day was full of amazing surprises planned by friends and family! Their niece beautifully sang their first dance song, one of the maids of honor had the most amazing toast which was written  to the tune of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and the best man surprise everyone with a visit from the Eagles pep band! It’s difficult to accurately put in words what an incredible day it was, so continue scrolling for a complete overload of photos! Congratulations Rob and Kaitlyn! It was an  honor to photograph your wedding day. And thank you to all of the vendors that pulled together to make the new wedding date a complete success!

COVID-19 Craziness

By | Weddings | No Comments

What a crazy week this has been, am I right? I have reached out to my couples getting married this spring and we have spoken about our plans for their weddings. As for the remainder of my 2020 weddings, we’ll see where this goes and make plans accordingly! For now though we are sitting tight in our homes just waiting this out and hoping that we can all stay healthy through this COVID-19 crisis.

I am not one to panic but rather the type of person that likes to plan and prepare as best as possible. If you are finding that you have some downtime now that basically everything has been cancelled you can definitely use this time wisely! In a way, we are so fortunate to have amazing technology that will allow so many resources at our fingertips. You can easily research all of your vendors online and even skype of facetime with them instead of meeting in person. This is the perfect time to plan your 2021 wedding!

I know I have mentioned it often in my instagram stories but I really just want to restate that fact that you shouldn’t wait to book your key vendors. Popular dates book up sometimes 18-12 months in advance! And in 2021 it might be a possibility that dates will book even faster due to the postponed weddings happening now.

If anyone is concerned about their own wedding or potential plans please don’t hesitate to reach out! I’m always available by e-mail and would love to help where I can.

 

On a more personal note, my kids are officially home from school until April 20th. Yes – you read that right. That’s more than one month of “home-schooling” while working my day job and running a business. I am so fortunate to be able to work from home in the first place so while this is uncharted territory, I’m thankful for the ability to be home for my kids. And just like I mentioned above, I’m a HUGE planner and I love a challenge. So since being faced with this major change in lifestyle and schedule, I have been doing what I do best – making lists and plans!

  • I took stock of what food we have at home, what I was able to scrounge up from the grocery store, and what instacart was able to deliver and planned my menu for the week! Unfortunately no one has bread but on a positive note, I LOVE baking! So tomorrow I’ll be making rolls for pulled pork sliders, and sandwich bread for all of the PB&J we’ll be eating!
  • Our yard needed some major attention so today was the perfect day to get outside and rake up all of the “sticky balls” from our trees. I also cleaned out the garden beds to prep for our herbs and veggies! Speaking of out garden, I’ll have the kids start our seeds tomorrow!
  • I have 3 boys, ages 8, 6, and almost 5! I’m not sure what their virtual learning will look like but I am hoping to involve them more in making meals throughout the day, as well as making their own beds. Since they won’t have music class we might dust off our keyboard and find some youtube tutorials to learn to play. My oldest is interested in learning cursive while he’s home and my youngest just wants to bake M&M cookies! I also have a whole pinterest board of crafts ready to go!
  • I’m a little upset that I won’t be able to go to the gym but I do have two legs and a river nearby to walk to on nice days! Otherwise I’ll be doing some kettlebell and dumbell workouts alone in my basement.
  • I also have my usual business goals and things to tend to but I won’t bore you all of that!

I think that whether your a parent or not, sticking to some kind of schedule each day is so important. This can be a really great time to tackle some projects that were lingering, learn to bake something ( as long as you were able to get the ingredients from the store), plan your wedding, or who knows what! On any normal day I also devote some time to my mindset by journaling and meditating. I’m pretty sure I’ll need that now more than ever!

I love to connect over making plans and setting goals so if you’re stuck on what you want to accomplish over this “quarantine” just reach out and we’ll chat! Most importantly, count your blessings! It’s so easy to think about all of the ways we have been inconvenienced but there is always something to be grateful for.

 

 

Northeast Philadelphia Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

Maura and Steve’s northeast Philadelphia wedding was the perfect end to my 2019 season! Their personalities reminded me so much of mine and my husbands and it felt good to be back in my neighborhood, back to the area where so many of my own friends were married! We were blessed with a gorgeous yet kind of cold day, thankfully with a lot of great sunlight and a stress-free timeline. The massive bridal party was a breeze to work with and not to mention, gorgeous! And can we all agree that Maura’s gown is STUNNING? I’m so happy to have been a part of this wonderful day – thank you Maura and Steve and congratulations!

Felt Factory Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

Since Meghan and Ron first met at a Halloween party it only made sense that their wedding reflected every bit of that night! Their Felt Factory wedding was the perfect Halloween bash! We started the day with Meghan and her girls getting ready at the Hilton Penn’s Landing before heading to her’s and Ron’s home. They have the most amazing backyard which is where the first look took place! Seriously, their backyard is now my inspiration and I sense some landscaping in my future! The weather didn’t completely cooperate so we stayed local for their photos and used some of the cool textured walls in their own neighborhood as the backdrop for our little portrait session. After photos were done we left for the Felt Factory for the ceremony and reception! I knew Meghan and Ron told guests to wear costumes but I never expected how high the participation level would be! Guests really showed up in a huge way for the bride and groom and did not disappoint. Meghan and Ron’s wedding is the perfect inspiration for anyone planning a Halloween wedding. Not only was the decor on point but everyone was so excited to celebrate the newlyweds. Congratulations Meghan and Ron and thank you for having me as a part of your day!

Corinthian Yacht Club Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

Mark and Melissa claim to be awkward in front of the camera but I think that after photographing their engagement session, and now after photographing their Corinthian Yacht Club wedding, they’re pros! I couldn’t ask for a better couple to photograph and for a better wedding day. Mark and Melissa were so chill on their day and really enjoyed celebrating with their friends and family. We never had to leave Corinthian Yacht Club which made the flow of the day completely stress-free. The grounds were beautiful to photograph as well!  As usual I have trouble selecting a small group of photos to share so there are almost 100 in this post – enjoy!!

Reading Terminal Market Wedding

By | Weddings | One Comment

I have a serious problem where I am completely unable to bring down the photo count on my blog posts! Maybe I overshare but I just love the details that my brides choose as well as so many moments throughout their day. And when their friends and family make you feel like you’ve known them for ages, it’s difficult to not share! Allison and Eamon’s Reading Terminal Market wedding was perfection! I knew from the first time we met for their engagement session that this wedding was going to be fun! I’m pretty sure I even said that to the staff at All About Events when we were speaking about when we would work together again. Allison & Eamon are kind, relaxed, classy, fun, quirky, and make you feel so comfortable to be around. I know it is usually my job to make my couples feel comfortable but these two just made me feel like we have known each other for ages.

The day started at the Loews hotel where the couple got ready and did their first look right on that beautiful staircase leading to the ballrooms. We walked to City Hall, Dilworth Park, and Pafa for their photos then very conveniently ended up practically on the doorstep of the Friends Center where their ceremony took place. The ceremony was thoughtful and touching and heartfelt with Allison’s sister as the officiant and their dog Reggie as the ring bearer. After they said I do everyone partied down at the Reading Terminal Market which, if you don’t know me very well, is my favorite place!! I have always loved the market because I love food but photographing weddings there just takes my obsession to a new level!

Enjoy the photo overload and congratulations to the newlyweds!

Desmond Hotel Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

Down-to-Earth, kind, and easy-going are just some of the words I would use to describe Abby and Zach. I loved them from our first meeting when they were still planning their Desmond Hotel wedding. We grabbed coffee at an adorable little shop in Philly and then met again for their engagement photos on a chilly day in the city. I stalked their instagrams and love seeing the awesome things they are up to and how much fun they have living their lives together. When their wedding day finally arrived I just couldn’t wait to celebrate with them and document each moment! The Desmond Hotel was perfect for their classic and romantic wedding vibe and was even close to a few fantastic locations for photos. I may have added too many photos from their day to this blog post but it was difficult to narrow them down. Abby’s gown was just beautiful, the details were clean and flawless, and you can’t ignore the huge smiles on everyone’s faces all day. Friends and family were more than excited to celebrate alongside Abby and Zach, as were all of the vendors! Congratulations to the newlyweds and best wishes on a wonderful and happy marriage!

Colonial Dames Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

True love isn’t found – it’s built.

I love this quote because like so many couples that meet online, so did Elizabeth and David! Although they set out specifically to find each other, that does not automatically create a relationship. They are building their relationship and their love story day by day. Working with them over these past few months has been a joy. They are a lovely and kind couple that are both so devoted to each other.Their Colonial Dames wedding may have been hectic at times but it was full of sweet moments! Thank you for having me photograph your day – it was an honor and I wish you both all of the happiness in the world!

Reading Terminal Wedding

By | Weddings | No Comments

You wouldn’t think that a shorter wedding day would result in so many photos but when you have a couple that is just happy to be together, to be with their friends and family, and happy to enjoy their lives, you can’t help but over-photograph things! Lauren & Jeff’s Reading Terminal wedding didn’t exactly go off without a hitch but they were always positive, pleasant, and kind! Even after a mishap on my end (reserved tickets for the Magic Gardens on the wrong day!) they were ready to go with the flow and move on to Plan B, which ended up working out better than our intial plan would have anyway! No wonder their family and friends love them so much.

The day started with Lauren getting ready with her mom in the couple’s apartment in Philly. From there we went to the first look location at the Magic Gardens where unfortunately, Jeff couldn’t get in because I reserved tickets from the wrong day ::insert facepalm here::. Instead, Lauren and Jeff did their first look right out front where we could still take photos in front of the murals. We also were lucky enough to be able to use other murals in the area. Then we moved to beers at Dirty Frank’s which was one of their first date locations! After that trip down memory lane we walked to Broad Street for the iconic shot in front of city hall where we were joined by an elderly gentleman. As I stood back and took pictures, I imagined he was giving them excellent marriage advice but apparently I think he was trying to sell something to them!

Shortly after photos at City Hall we met up with family and did portraits. Then it was off to the ceremony and receptions at Reading Terminal Market! The ceremony was officiated by one close friend and another sang a beautiful solo. The couple toasted with coors light in remembrance of Lauren’s dad and gave a beautiful speech thanking everyone, and reminiscing about the first time they met. Then everyone just danced the night away! It was an honor to be a part of this wedding and a true honor to know Lauren and Jeff! Congratulations to the newlyweds!
