Lacey and Peter's Intimate Camp Innabah Wedding in the Woods

Before Lacey and Peter celebrated their marriage with all their friends and family, they wanted to have a small and intimate ceremony at Camp Innabah, where the two first met. They both were campers here and then continued on to work as staff at the camp, so the camp is so meaningful to their characters and their relationship. They were surrounded by only their immediate family and closest friends as they shared their vows and promises to one another. These two are so loving and patient and it was such a joy to capture such a memorable day in their lives.

Carly & Themis' Timeless New York City Brooklyn Heights Engagement Session

I'm a huge fan of color. Color changes the mood of a session, tells the story of the season, the time of day. But there's something so timeless about a black and white image in New York City. Carly and Themis has such a classic look to them, I thought that sharing some of my favorite black and white images from their session mixed with a couple color images to really allow Carly's bright pink dress to pop would be a fun way to showcase their engagement shoot! 

We had such a wonderful time walking around one of their favorite neighborhoods, Brooklyn Heights, on a beautiful spring afternoon. We walked and laughed through old cobblestone street and captured views of Manhattan's skylines and the Brooklyn Bridge! I can't wait to capture their wedding day at the Liberty House in Jersey City this October!

Carolyn and Josh's Ocean City, New Jersey Spring Engagement Session

Carolyn and Josh wanted to capture some memories at one of their favorite places, Ocean City, NJ. We hung out along the boardwalk and on the beach on an windy early spring evening! I always love being at the beach during the off-season- everything is quiet and surreal, so it's always a pleasure to capture it during this time!

I can't wait to capture Carolyn and Josh's wedding next week at the American Swedish Historical Museum in South Philadelphia! 

Kim + David's Wedding at Pomme in Radnor, PA

Kim and David’s wedding was simple and elegant on an early and cold spring day in March at Pomme in Radnor, PA- just in the Western suburbs of Philadelphia. There was still snow on the ground from a few days before but they were kept warm by their children and closest friends and family on a day filled with so much love and joy. Kim decided to wear a bold purple floor length gown from Van Cleve on her wedding day! After a short and sweet ceremony (and a recessional to It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock!) their guests enjoyed a candlelit dinner with the most delicious food from Peachtree and Ward. Kim’s son surprised his mama with a song wrote and played on his keyboard- which had everyone in tears (from crying and laughing!) For dessert, Li Halpern, surprised the two with a donut tower from their favorite donut joint in their hometown of Haddon Township, McMillans Bakery. Guests were also surprised with the Undergrnd donut truck for dessert! Kim and David- thank you so much for having me capture your beautiful wedding day at Pomme!

Jennie & Mario's Engagement Session at Ott's Exotic Plants in Schwenksville, PA

Jennie and Mario welcomed spring at Ott's Exotic Plants for their engagement session! These two were so happy and giggled the entire way through their session- which always makes my job super easy! These two had such a beautiful and genuine connection and were in love with exploring the rows of plants and succulents at Ott's. We can't wait to capture their wedding at Normandy Farms this June! 

Why do I shoot film?

Below are images from a recent visit to Longwood Gardens- it was such a joy to escape the cold grey winter and get some greenery!  All these photographs were taken with my Mamiya 645 on medium format film. Although I don't regularly shoot film for weddings or portrait work, I do shoot it for my own personal work. I do this because my digital edits are inspired by the way film handles color, texture, and depth of field. Everything on that camera is manual which makes me slow down to make sure every shot is exposed and comprised correctly. It's a good practice for me to get better at what I love and I always love to try to improve and grow!

Sydney & Lawrence's Berks County Courthouse Wedding

Sydney and Lawrence were married at the Berks County Courthouse on a Tuesday afternoon in February. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they tied the knot before they welcomed their first baby girl into the world! Sydney was an absolutely stunning bride with her 7 month bump! Their family packed into the tiny court room and cheered on the bride and groom, showering them with so much love and joy! 

Sydney and Lawrence, I am so honored to have captured memories for you two and your growing family to cherish!

Gianna & Joe's Cape May Engagement Session

Joe proposed to Gianna this winter at Cape May's Congress Hall, so it was fitting for their engagement session to be along the beaches in Cape May. These two lucked out with an incredible Jersey Shore sunset and a 65 degree day in the middle of February! I had such an amazing time capturing the genuine and beautiful love between these two! Congratulations on your engagement- the best is yet to come!
