Philadelphia Wedding of Jen & Gino

I really enjoyed and had a good time photographing Jen and Gino’s engagement session and I knew the wedding will be the same. Well, the wedding was even better. Jen was radiant (despite of the unusual cold weather we had) during the entire day.wedding detailsbride getting ready and putting her own makeupbride getting ready being helped by her mother and bridemaidsbride portrait while getting readybride portrait with bridesmaids holding gown

Dad was sporting some cool socks (in fact, all the guys in the wedding party had them).

The Intimate Wedding of Madeline and Todd

I love my job. Even though I photographed hundreds of weddings over the years, each one is different than the next. From 500 guests to an intimate wedding like Madeline and Todd’s. And to top it off, Madeline was so relaxed and not phased one bit about the change in plans. The ceremony and portraits were to be done in a beautiful park setting. Mother nature thought otherwise.

Did I mention that Madeline was not phased by the rain? … here she is laying down to take pictures with her nephew … the rain just stopped.

The best accessories for a bridesmaid …

This was a new one for me: guests were leaving their fingerprints and thoughts on a handmade painting. Pretty cool.

After the ceremony, we stopped by an abandoned train station for some portraits …

As always, we end with a portrait of the happy couple.

Welcome to the second installment of Tara and Mark’s wedding at Trump National Golf Club: the reception. After a stormy night and rainy morning, the weather decided to cooperate and the sun came out. Just in time for portraits of the beautiful bride and groom.
