Spring is finally here! And thankfully the blooms appeared just in time for Pat and Paige’s wedding! This romantic rustic-chic wedding started at the church of Our Lady Assumption where the couple’s dearest friends and family witness their union. The celebration continued at the Pomme which is a beautiful little secluded venue in Radnor. Paige looked stunning in her Kleinfield wedding gown and the organic look of her bouquet complimented her style! Bridesmaids wore long elegant light pink gowns while the groomsmens rocked navy tuxes and pink ties.

After the rings were exchanged, Pat could not keep his hands off his wife! I think it was so adorable that he took every opportunity to caress Paige. And Paige would blush almost instantly at his sweet affection.

The best way to describe Adam and Dana’s love is magnetic — and they would agree! Since they’ve first met, Adam charmed Dana with his goofy ways and down to earth nature. For Dana, he had the ability to always make her smile and make those butterflies appear! And it’s true! After getting to know the […]

It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that last year – as of April 28th – I quit my safe, comfortable, and steady corporate job to dream out loud and become a FULL time wedding photographer! I remember the week leading up to handing in my resignation… I wanted to throw up! That piece of paper I was about to hand to my boss would make everything REAL. I would be giving up a steady paycheck, having the weekends off, a 401K, office friends, holiday parties, the never ending battle with the damn vending machine, and predominately, job security.

For 4 long years I managed to work a full time job, take care of the house, attempt a personal life, and run a part-time photography business. Let me tell you, it was hard! But I had a system and I was comfortable. Comfort doesn’t always mean good! I settled for being part time photographer and working 9 – 5 job knowing I would still get a paycheck on the 15th and 30th of every month. Needless to say, I was tired, overworked and unhappy.

Here’s a sneak peek to this beautiful chic Philadelphia wedding. The morning started with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony where Duong and Long’s closest friends and family witness the exchanging of vows, gifts and tears. Duong then dressed in a stunning Lillian West wedding gown to surprise her Groom who was waiting for her at the Waterworks. Her bridesmaids wore […]

I am so excited to share Kim and Brandon’s beautiful Fall wedding at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown! Kim’s vision for their wedding was classic meets elegance. The bridesmaids wore long black strapless dresses while the groomsmen escorted the ladies in a classic black tux. After sharing a sweet First Look at the Headhouse Square, the wonderful couple exchanged their vows where their dearest family and friends bared witness. It was such a stunning affair! We had so many favorite parts from Kim and Brandon’s wedding, but I managed to narrow it down the ones that best showcased their day… which was hard! :)
