Erin and Gabe's wedding

I photographed Erin and Gabe's wedding at the Cescaphe Ballroom in Northern Liberties just last Saturday. The food was amazing, some of the best I've ever had and I've been to a lot of weddings! This is the quickest I have been able to post because I had some extra help. Misty came along as a third assistant to help set up a slide show at the reception so the guests could view the photos. Having a selection of images made immediately helped me to post so soon.
Erin was the PERFECT bride. Just smiling and glowing all day long. (Gabe is a handsome guy too!) They booked me a year and a half ago so this day has been anticipated for a while. Erin and her mom have a great eye for detail. Check out Erin's pink shoes, so cute!

My new second shooter Sarah Miller got these great shots of Erin just before she walked down the aisle.

The ring bearer did not want to cooperate, so cute though. He eventually warmed up to me.

Misty got some beautiful shots too like this one, as a third set of eyes. It helps so much to have extra help when rushed for time. The bride and groom wanted to get to their amazing cocktail hour, I don't blame them.

They had fireworks!

The dj was awesome, what a party! This is Jason from Synergetic Sounds. One of the best I've heard in a while.

This is me with my friends Patty and Alan. They grew up with the groom and referred me for the wedding. Patty is a really talented photographer who use to work with me. But now she is off to bigger and better things like contributing to the new magazine blu, going to school, and raising her son.

Carol Ann and Kevin's beach portraits(a trash the dress session)

Last weekend I had the best shoot ever! (No really, my favorite so far!) I photographed Carol Ann and Kevin's wedding in May at the Dupont Country Club. So this was an extra shoot at the beach. They got all dressed up again in their wedding gear and we went to Wildwood and Cape May, NJ. These places are very special to Carol Anne and she also wished she could have had her wedding in Cape May, so this shoot was a must! My favorite ones are on the swings with them, check out the expressions on their faces. Click here to see more on my website.

Check out this guy in the background!

I thought it was really funny how everyone just gawked at them! We turned a lot of heads. This little girl below was a tourist from Egypt who asked for a photo with them. They must of heard the phrase "Congratulations!" from tourists like 50 times and had to respond thank you every time!

I just love the light hitting the yellow walls of Congress Hall in Cape May.

It sort of turned into a trash the dress shoot when the wind kicked up. Actually Kevin fell in a hole in the sand and did more damage to his suit than to the dress. He just laughed it off!

What a GORGEOUS sunset in Cape May! It was a perfect day. Thank you Carol Ann and Kevin for being such good sports and also giving me the opportunity for such a fun shoot!
Anyone else interested, the summer is young!
