Independence Hall Old City Philadelphia Engagement Photography |
Its always an honor to capture a friend and the special moments in their lives! I've known Dan for a while now - we went to school together, worked together for a little while and now he is a successful Realtor who helped Ryan and I buy and sell our first house and buy our home that we are in now! :) So I guess you could say he's been a part of some major moments in our life too! It wasnt until recently that we got the pleasure to meet his gorgeous fiancé Kelly! (And it just so happens that she works at the salon that I go to! Small world!) [Read More]
After 4 years together, Dan finally proposed to Kelly on December 20th, 2012! Ever since they met, Kelly has wanted to go on a horse and carriage ride. Every time they'd seen it in a movie or while in the city, she'd always tell Dan how much she wants to do it! Well, Dan finally gave in and took Kelly into the city on a Thursday afternoon for their horse and carriage ride around Independence National Park - and as they were crossing over Walnut St... Dan turned to Kelly, got on one knee in the carriage (impressive!) and asked her to marry him!! Of course she said Yes!! So what better place to take their engagement photos than where it all happened!! We absolutely adore these two and cant wait to capture their wedding next February!! Enjoy the sneak peek! xo
The laughter with these two was contagious!
Since Dan is a Realtor, it only made sense that they incorporate that into their photos!! LOVE THIS IDEA!!!
Standing at the intersection where it all happened!!
And since they are huge Phillies fans, we had to incorporate a little baseball into it!
We had such a great time with you both!!! Super excited to be a part of your wedding next year!! Only 9 months to go!! xo
Jessica + Eric!
Beach Trash the Dress Post-Wedding Photography! |
I can't even begin to describe how lucky I am to be a part of the wedding industry! Not just because I'm a hopeless romantic and my love of love... but gosh, I have made some of the greatest friendships a girl could ask for! From wedding planners to florists to hair/makeup artists - the ladies that I've met in the past 5 years have been some that I hope to know for the next 25 and beyond! [Read More]
Jessica from Your Day Your Way is no exception! After meeting her back in early 2011, things just clicked with us and its been an absolute pleasure getting to know her over the past few years! When I find out that a bride is using her for their hair and make-up I do a little giddy dance because I know that although my brides are all already gorgeous, Jess is going to go out of her way to make sure each of them are flawless! Her talent is pure artistry and perfection!
So, needless to say, when Jessica wanted to do a Trash the Dress down in Cape May, I jumped at the chance to capture her and her hubby Eric! We started our time together at the always beautiful Congress Hall, the shops down Washington Street and then eventually made it to the beach where their little fur-babies Chico and Chanel made a little cameo! They are the cutest little chihuahuas! And although a bit chilly... I was able to get these two lovebirds in the ocean! And it was so totally worth it! Check it out!
Oh, the laughter... there was so much of that!
Love the drama!
One of my favorites!
Jess, you are breathtaking!
The sunlight was just perfection!
Their adorable little family of 4!! :)
Soooo worth it!! Gorgeous!!
I cant even handle the fabulousness!!!
Jess <3 Eric - thank you thank you thank you for letting us capture these photos for you! Gosh, seeing you both together, you can just see how much you're meant to be together! A little laughter and a little romance makes a perfect combination! Hoping to hang out with you both again soon! xo

After Kellianne and Michael's transportation inspired engagement session in Hoboken, we were so excited to capture their transportation themed wedding! From their adorable invitations to their beautiful escort cards and display to getting photos taken at the oldest train station in New Jersey - their day was full of love and travel! And we could not have been more excited to capture such a special day for them! Enjoy the sneak peek!Love the personalized hangers for the bridesmaids as well!

The gorgeous St. Agnes Church in Blackwood, NJ!
Yay! Congratulations to the new Mr + Mrs Burke!
After the ceremony with the crazy threat of rain, we headed to the Long-a-Coming Station in Berlin - the oldest train station in New Jersey! Thankfully the rain held out and we were able to get some awesome photos for these two lovebirds!!
Since we were taking photos on active train tracks, we got lucky and a train come by for a photo!! A little NJ Transit cameo in their wedding photos just like their engagement photos!
Their escort card display was absolutely perfect! Loved the continuation of the travel theme!
Kellianne's dad is part of a Pipe Band and they were soooo awesome to play for a little bit at her reception!!!
They even had a Cigar Bar for their guests!!
Wishing you both soooo many congratulations! We had an amazing time capturing your perfect day! Hope you have an absolutely fabulous time as your love travels through Italy on your honeymoon!!!!!

Amy and Aka chose Camp Ockanickon in Medford, New Jersey as the setting for the day that they said their I Do's. We were so lucky to have such an absolutely perfect day - perfect weather, perfect scenery, perfect couple for their outdoor ceremony and reception!
