Terence + Bill II Morris Arboretum II Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

I was lucky to have met and become friends with Terence years ago. I immediately loved him, and, he ended up loving me too. Terence is one of those people who will tell you exactly what is on his mind. He's honest, real, and extremely loyal to the people he loves. When I met Bill, I realized how quickly they compliment one another. Bill is calm, sweet, and patient and Terence is passionate and wears his heart on his sleeve. They make an unstoppable couple together. 

When Terence called me to tell me that Bill and him were getting married, I pretty much begged him to let me photograph the day. It meant so much to me to be able to document a day as important as this. They got ready together, in perfect Terence and Bill fashion. We then traveled to the Morris Arboretum which is AMAZING!! In every corner, its breath-taking, from the gardens, the canopy tree top cocktail hour, the golden sunset that blessed Terence and Bill on their wedding day. 

It was a wedding like no other, surrounded by their closest family and friends and a party to follow. At the end of the night, I was walking out with Bill when their coordinator asked him how the night went. I don't think I will ever forget his response: 

"I can't even say that today is a dream come true because for so long, this was something I thought could never be a reality.....It's so much more then that"

T + B, I can't thank you enough for having me be such a huge part of your day. You both mean the world to me!! 

 

Amanda+Andreas II John James Audubon Center II Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

Amanda and Andreas are as sweet as couples can get. They were married at the John James Audubon Center on a beautiful August day. It was definitely a hot day but they never once complained about the Pennsylvania August heat. If you've neven been to the John James Audubon Center, its worth a visit. Everytime I have a wedding there I fall in love with it all over again. ((Side note: where else can you rent an Owl to join your wedding guests for cocktail hour?)) 

Amanda and Andreas made the day even more perfect. Not only do they look at one another in a way that makes you melt, they are so easy going and fun to be around. Andreas and his family are extremely talented and his sister serenaded them while Amanda walked down the aisle. Later in the evening, Andreas himself got up and sang, his eyes only on Amanda. This was a dream of a day, I can't wait to share! 

Kaitlynn & Sean || Valley Forge National Park, Philadelphia, PA || Philadelphia Engagement Photographer

Kaitlynn, Sean, their adorable pup Sam, and I met at Valley Forge National Park on a stunning fall day. I always try to plan my engagement shoots around sunset because I am constantly chasing that beautiful light. We couldn't have picked a better day! Kaitlynn and Sean were a dream to work with. They snuggle up together in the best way. We spent a few hours walking around the park, getting to know each other better, and really just enjoying the moment. I am SO excited for their wedding this October. Here's a few of my favorites from that day. Can you get enough of Sam's bowtie?
