Stacey and Wes -Married Brigalias Sicklerville, NJ

There is something about the holidays that already has a magical feel, so when you add in a great wedding with a bit of a Christmas theme it only gets better. What you may remember about this couple is that when we did their engagement photos in April it was absolutely freezing outside in some off-season type cold weather. So, of course it would only make sense that on their wedding day just a few days before Christmas when you would expect it to be freezing was actually really nice outside with oddly warm weather. Even though the weather is inconsistent when these two get together with us.. one thing that was definitely consistent was Stacey and Wes, the true friendship that their relationship is built on, and how much fun they have together. I’m so excited to finally get to share these photos after getting through the holidays…. so… onto the good stuff…

These pictures are amazing and I love them. I want to say it was great working with you two.

Beth and Aaron- Married -Liberty View Ballroom Philadelphia,PA

Austin and I met Beth and Aaron back in 2010 when Beth was a bridesmaid in Jenny and Mike’s wedding. Jenny and Mike’s wedding was one of our favorites we have ever shot just because of all their great friends, the excitement, and how much fun everyone had. So, getting the opportunity to shoot a wedding for one of those friends and see some familiar faces was very exciting for us. When you meet Beth, you already know that she is beautiful, but when she put on her dress and veil I was blown away. She was such a gorgeous bride! Before the first look I was so excited because I knew Aaron was going to feel the same way when he saw her, and he was looking quite dapper himself. Now, I love when a couple chooses to do a first look, and this was just one of those really special ones. Everyone at this wedding knew how special the connection was between these two. Beth’s dad even mentioned that Aaron sent Beth 8 gifts (one for each week) that he was gone on military duty before the wedding. Isn’t that just the sweetest love story? The wedding ceremony took place on the Navy Base in Philadelphia, and the reception was at the Liberty View Ballroom. I am so excited to get these photos up on the blog, and there are a lot of them…. Thank you Beth and Aaron for choosing us to capture your perfect day!

Regina and George – Married Windrift Avalon, NJ

The day that we met Regina and George we spent more time talking about the Jersey Shore than we did wedding photography. Regina and George share the same love for the shore as we do, so of course they chose to have their wedding celebration there. I love shooting at the beach, and we got lucky with that one day in November that was oddly warm outside. The weather was perfect for outdoor photos in November. Their wedding was at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Ocean City, NJ and the reception was held at the Windrift in Avalon, NJ. Austin and I actually went to the Windrift a few weeks in advance, you know…. because we had to make sure the drinks were good… These two were so great to shoot, and I am so glad they chose us to be their photographers… Now.. onto the good stuff..

Kelsey and Marc- Married Trump National Golf Club Philadelphia at Pine Hill, NJ

The first time that I met Kelsey, Marc wasn’t able to attend our meeting but I knew right away that I wanted to photograph their wedding. The way that Kelsey talked about Marc, I could just feel how much she loved him and how excited she was to be getting married. I’m a sucker for a real life love story, and Kelsey and Marc are exactly that. So, needless to say I knew that when this wedding day arrived it would be perfect. I had a couple who was truly in love, a gorgeous bride, a handsome groom, a great venue, my favorite florist Savannahs Garden, and some perfect weather. What I didn’t know about was the great families and friends that I would be around. Kelsey’s parents were so much fun while the girls were getting ready, and I loved being surrounded by such great energy.

The ceremony was at Holy Angels Parish in Trenton, NJ and the reception was at Trump National Golf Club Philadelphia in Pine Hill, NJ. I made it pretty clear to Kelsey and Mark that I want to be invited as a guest to the next event in their families because they know how to have a good time. The dancefloor was packed, the lightsticks, hats and sunglasses were out, and they kept the party going all night. Congrats to you both! Austin and I are so lucky to have shared this day with you.

Alicia and Thomas -Engaged Riverwinds West Deptford, NJ

 photo 064_zps9f66a17d.jpg

Alicia and Thomas are just so naturally comfortable together, it made taking photos of them even better. As a bonus, we got to include their adorable daughter Brooklyn in the session. Brook has the cutest little personality and she is going to make the perfect little flower girl next May. The highlight of the session would probably be when she was playing in the rocks and she said “I wanna give this one to Issy”. I was honestly impressed that she remembered my name and it made my heart melt a little. We shot these photos at the Riverwinds in West Deptford, NJ. I had never been there before, but I’m so glad that they chose this location. I feel like we got the first hint of fall in these photos so the colors really stand out. If you have been following my blog, you probably already know how much I like bright colors in photos. I’m so excited for Alicia and Thomas’s wedding next spring.
ps… I’m totally jealous of Alicia’s gorgeous hair…
