Hotel Monaco Philadelphia Wedding of Karen & Matt

Today we are featuring a very intimate and beautiful wedding. Karen and Matt celebrated their special day along with their family and close friends on this beautiful and sunny spring day. The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony.

Venue – Hotel Monaco
Officiant – Journeys of the Heart (Bob P.)

 

Enjoy these images from their beautiful day.

 

 

I really like the preppy look of the ring bearer. Both him and the flower girl were adorable.

 

Apparently, “the stuff my aunt and uncle are saying” is not that captivating:)

 

And, as always, we present you some beautiful wedding portraits of the wonderful couple.

 

Thank you Karen and Matt for allowing me to be part of your beautiful celebration.

Philadelphia Baby Portraits of “I” – 3 months session

This is the first session of “I” from her first year program. You first met baby “I” when we had her newborn portraits done (you can see them here). It never cease to amaze me a baby’s transformation in the first year of their life. It is truly a miracle.

And “I” was a joy to photograph. Aside from her killer looks :), she was so good and “posed” for us during the session. I see a modeling career in front of her.

 

Check back for more images from her sessions.

Engagement Signature Album

Often, in various wedding related blogs and magazines, you see the advice to have an engagement session “to get to know your photographer”. While that statement is somewhat debatable, I do believe that you should take advantage if you do have an engagement session. You can have “Save The Date” cards made, a guest sign in album (where your guests will leave their wishes and thoughts for you) as a great compliment to your main album. Here are some images with the thank you cards and sign in album we created for Jen and Gino.

 

I look forward to their wedding later in the year. You can also see some images from their engagement session here.

    

Positano Coast Wedding of Don and Leslie

What a great way to start the wedding season: a beautiful and intimate wedding in Philadelphia.

Venue – Positano Coast

After hundreds of weddings photographed, there is always something new. This was a first for me: ceremony officiated at the Criminal Justice Center. As usual, I try to capture the in between moments to get a feel of how the day went. As soon as I lifted my camera, a sheriff deputy and two security agents jumped up like I was pulling out a gun :-). Apparently, you need a court order in order to photograph inside. Luckily, the judge that officiated was kind enough to let me capture the ceremony. And even though it was intimate and only the immediate family and close friends were present, it was very moving and emotional.

 

Even my assistant was moved to tears

And as usual, we end with a picture of the wonderful couple.

 

Don and Leslie, thank you again for allowing me to be part of your special day.
