Dupont Country Club wedding

Click here to see more photos from this wedding.
I photographed Carl Ann and Kevin's wedding on May 19th in Delaware. The reception was at the Dupont Country Club. They were both so sweet and really emotional people which made the photos even better. Everyone was laughing and crying. Carol Ann is so pretty and Kevin was a lot of fun to work with. They wanted to have their wedding in Cape May so you can see a beach theme to some of the guest's favors. They are actually hiring me to do a shoot in Cape May and Wildwood in a few weeks too! They are going to get all dressed up again and have a romantic shoot on the boardwalk and then in the waves! I am really looking forward to that, so check back!

Of course I love red!

Carol Ann and her childhood dog, Casey, so cute!

I don't know why but the groomsmen dared Kevin to pretend he was hitchhiking.

After the ceremony we stopped in their college bar hangout.

....and Kevin made friends.

The tears were flowing during a slide show of their lives.

This room was a perfect size for bouncing my flash off the walls to create this nice light.

Glenn Foerd Wedding

To see a large collection of photos from this wedding click here to get to my website.
I photographed Mabel and Bill's wedding at Glenn Foerd Mansion in Northeast Philly on May 5th. I just love the color red, so to photograph this wedding was eye candy for me (even my office walls are red!) We really lucked out with beautiful weather. It was nice and sunny but not too hot. Glenn Foerd is really one of the most beautiful wedding spots in Philly. They recently added on a new reception area called the Riverside Conservatory. It feels like you are actually outside because it is all glass and you can see all the wonderful views of the grounds and the river during your reception. One of my favorite shots was taken by my assistant of the bridesmaid in red looking out at the river. She shot it through a frosted part of the glass so it looks all dreamy and blurry like a painting. It reminds me of the 19th century paintings that would actually be hanging up at Glenn Foerd in the art gallery upstairs.

Meranda's pregnancy photos

I shot Meranda and Bob's wedding last June at the Willow's.
Meranda had also hired me to photograph her first "baby", Deek their dog, as a present for Bob.

So now she is about to have a baby in a few weeks and I did a pregnancy shoot in her home and also in the Wissahickon park. Bob and Meranda are avid runners and train for marathons. So the trails in the Wissahickon are very special to them. I photographed both the dog portrait there and the pregnancy ones. Meranda has such great energy and I can see why she is a good school teacher. I am sure she will be missed by her students when she goes on maternity leave, but her baby will be very fortunate to have great parents. When I got to their house to do the shoot I saw my photos so artistically framed around their home and that made me so happy. I can't wait to meet the new baby!
