Julie and Rob – Philly Hotel Monaco wedding

It was really just a few weeks ago that we were dealing with one of the snow storms with about 4″ of snow coming down – on top of the piles of snow already there.  During this weekend, I met up with Julie and Rob for their engagement session in Old City, Philadelphia.  Fast forward to their wedding at the Hotel Monaco.  While we didn’t venture outside because of the rain, we made great use of the Hotel Monaco’s gorgeous decor.

As I started the day with the Julie and her bridesmaids, I could sense the calmness.  Everything came together and went off without a hitch.  The flowers by Carl Alan, were stunning, but definitely shadowed by how great Julie and Rob looked.

The band, Burnt Sienna, kept the dance floor packed the entire night.  They were such a hit, the wedding guests wouldn’t let them finish and insisted on an encore.

It was a great wedding and I was so happy to be part of their day!

Miriam and Louis – Wedding

I recently photographed Miriam and Louis’ wedding at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ.  Miriam and Louis planned most, if not all, of this wedding from Pittsburgh where they live right now.  They both did an excellent job with it, because it was a ton of fun to be part of.

From the start of the day with Miriam and her bridesmaids while they all got ready, to some of Louis and his groomsmen, everyone was so easy to work with.  As we set up Louis for their first look, I could tell he was a little nervous,  but it was instantly washed away when Miriam came walking up to him.

Before their ketubah signing, they hosted a cocktail hour for their guests while Louis and some of his close guy friends went of for his Tisch.

The rest of the day followed the early parts of just running so smooth followed by a great reception.

Jen and Jim – Wedding at The Carriage House

Jen and Jim’s Wedding at the Carriage House in Galloway, NJ was my first wedding of 2014, and I couldn’t have been more excited!  After a very busy 2013 and a few weeks off, I was ready to get back to work.  Jen, Jim and their family and friends did not disappoint!  While it was a brisk February day, the sun was shining and couldn’t have been any more gorgeous.  We even got a change for a great sunset portrait.

Take a peak at their preview below.

Julie and Rob – Snowy Old City engagement session

A few weeks back, we planned Julie and Rob’s engagement session to take place in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia this past weekend.  Since it was a few weeks out, we clearly didn’t expect a Polar Vortex to come through the week prior, let alone for it to snow the day of our shoot.  Because only 3″ were forecast, instead of nearly a foot the city was still under, we kept to our schedule.

When I arrived at their Old City apartment, we took a few minutes for a few quick family portraits, while staying warm inside.

We started their engagement session portion at Elfreths Alley and meandered around 2nd and 3rd streets for a bit.  Getting to know these two was a real treat.  They are a ton of fun; such a cute couple and really willing to get some awesome pictures.  I can’t wait for their wedding in just a few months at Hotel Monaco.

Val and Jason – Curtis Center Wedding

Val and Jason’s wedding was my last wedding shoot of 2013.  And let me say, it was an awesome day to close out on!  Not only did I get to see a past couple of mine (Kathy and Anthony – Val’s brother), but the weather was great, we got to take wedding pictures at Citizens Bank Ball Park and the Phillie Phanatic showed up to the reception at Cescaphe’s Curtis Center in Philadelphia.  Oh and they had some great beer available to them from Kona Brewery!
