Erica and John – Married Brigalias Sicklerville, NJ

To say that there was anticipation leading up to this wedding is an understatement. Erica told me that she wanted me to be her photographer almost 3 years ago. One thing that I really appreciate about Erica is that she knows what she has her heart set on… and John being the most important. This was one of those weddings that was so perfectly planned that I kind of wanted to be a guest and join in on the party. Brigalias really knows how to serve up a top notch wedding. The gorgeous day made for a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony, and Steve & Co. kept the party going all night long. These two really know how to have fun together, and it was infectious to the people around them. I am so happy that Austin and I got to share in their special day.

 

John and Erica, I made you a special slideshow of your wedding, and I hope you can relive your amazing day through these photos over and over again!

Rebecca and Neil- Married Ridley Creek Mansion

When I woke up Saturday morning beaming with excitement for Rebecca and Neil’s wedding day, the first thing I did was check the weather. Well, it doesn’t get much better than this…80 degrees and sunny for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Rebecca was a simply stunning bride, and I couldn’t wait for Neil to see her in her dress. They had a first look at Ridley Creek, followed up by some portraits and a very emotional and personal wedding ceremony. The details at this wedding were perfect. They chose the really colorful flowers, and they had little touches of birdhouses and birds that really went with the wedding look. I honestly could have shot at this venue all day and night. They were walkways, a rose garden and just some unbelievably gorgeous areas to shoot in. At the end of the reception we were able to get Becky and Neil for a few minutes to do some really different night shots. I love couples who love photography! I can’t say anything else about how perfect this day was so I’ll just show you….

Michele and Christian’s Anniversary Vow Renewal XIX Bellevue Philadelphia, PA

10 years ago I was a guest at one of the most elegant weddings I may ever see in my life. It was my first real introduction to weddings from hearing the planning that was going on for months in advance to picking out my first fancy dress to wear to this impressive event. It was also the first time that I ever “felt” the love at a wedding. Chris and Michele really shared something special, something that I hoped to find for myself one day. So, I cant say anything other than the fact that I was honored when they asked me to shoot their ten year anniversary celebration and vow renewal. Watching them exchange vows again, brought back those same memories that I had as a teenager when I heard them the first time…. I was witnessing two people who loved and still love each other more than could have been put into words. Tears filled my eyes for the second time watching them only this time I had a new appreciation, and I had to keep it together to keep the camera steady!

I am so happy. They are amazing. I can’t wait to pick out the rest. You and Austin are so wonderful and it was so great to spend the day with you.

I absolutely love your pictures! Michele you make even a more beautiful bride ten years later. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. Thank you for inviting us to celebrate with you.

Jessica and James – Married Paris Caterers Blackwood, NJ

I met Jess a couple years ago when she was modeling for a shoot in Philly, and I remember that her boyfriend James was waiting nearby to pick her up from the shoot. Fast forward a bit to the part where James put a ring on her finger. When Jess told me that she wanted me to shoot her wedding, I was beyond excited. Besides the fact that I had a fun, gorgeous bride to shoot I had heard such nice things about James from Jess. We didn’t actually meet James until the wedding day, but he was everything that Jess had told me he would be that day we did the Philly shoot. Jess and James decided that they wanted to do a “first look” where they would see each other and do photos before the wedding so that they didn’t have to rush, and they could relax and enjoy their cocktail hour. I actually love when couples do this because they get their own special moment without everyone watching, and I love the photos that come from that. Austin got to the park first, and he scoped out the perfect location for Jess and James first look down a wooded path. It was perfect.. smiles, laughter, tears…. but I’ll just let the photos do the rest of the talking. Jess and James, we are so happy to have met a couple so perfect for each other, and we are excited to share these images of your day!

This is my little tribute to the dancing that happened at this wedding. This is the first time I have ever seen Krump/Clown dancing at a wedding. This dance floor had everything from the 2 step to slo-mo moves to the crazy dancing you see here..

New Blog Site!

 

Hey Everyone! Welcome to the new Issy Schmid Imaging blogsite! I am so excited to have this new blogsite up and running just in time to kick off this year’s wedding season. The best thing about this new site, is that you will no longer have to go to two different websites to see the blog and the portfolio galleries because it’s all here on one site! So now you will have all the features of my full website right along with the latest photos from my blog posts. This site is still a work in progress, so I will be adding more galleries for you to view, and getting some new blog posts up. I’m looking forward to another great season of awesome couples, beautiful weddings, fabulous events and adorable kids!
