April 17th 2009 I photographed the events of Sarah and Justins wedding in philadelphia pennsylvania. It was a beautiful day! The weather was great! Coverage began at Sarahs mom and das house (the house she grew up in). Everyone was nervous and excited as Sarah got ready. The limo arrived and after a few quick pictures outside in we went to the church.
The ceremony was beautiful and the church was very nice as well. Shortly after we headed to the reception hall where we grabeed a few pictures before heading into Rosewood catering hall.
The day went smooth and the festivities were great for all involved!
Congratulations Sarah and Justin!

Ginny, a good friend of close to 9 years told me about 2 weeks before xmas she was getting married! I was very happy to hear that she was getting married and that I didnt already have a wedding that day!

It was a small intimate ceremony in the couples home. Short and sweet.
Afterward there was a buffet dinner (the bride did all by herself). How crazy is that!? Shortly after the dinner we headed out to get some snowy pictures. It was cold but not unbearable. We headed to some long steps up the road and were able to get many nice shots there. After that we headed to a canal. On the way back to the house I noticed a large brick building that we used for some neat pictures as well. It was a very memorable day for Ginny and Chris, and I hope they enjoy their pictures! Below are a couple of my favs from this xmas wedding!

For Thanksgiving I was headed back to the philadelphia are and decided to set up a shoot at the eastern state penitentary. I was going to shoot with Kelly in a previous shoot, but she couldnt make it due to dance. So I decided to contact her for this shoot and she was available! So I decided to ask her friend Lindsy whom I had shot with in Brigantine NJ earlier this year. Anyway it proved pretty hard to get any shots there, considering there is a “fine line” between shots and “model” shots. Which I dont really get but regardless we had fun and got some neat shots. Below are a couple from the cold day.

I did an engagement shoot for Michael and Courtney less than 2 weeks before their wedding. The wedding was November 8th 2008 in Danville Pa. I really enjoyed meeting them at their engagement shoot and got to know them a bit. They are very adventurous and have done a fair bit of traveling. The engagement shots came out very good, because they are so in love and it showed! Needless to say it made my job easier. I barely had to pose them.

I arrived with my assistant at the church in Danville around 12pm. The church was pretty large and had awesome high ceilings. One of the stipulations was I no flashes and no photography from the audience. So I had to head up to the balcony and shoot from there with no flash. I switched between my 55-200vr, fish eye and 50mm 1.8 for the majority of the shots.

After the ceremony we had a ton of family/portrait shots to do. Everyone cooperated well, considering they were hungry and ready to party.

The couple and I headed outside and got some great shots of the autumn foilage. The reception was held at the elks club. The night ended with Michael and Courtney heading off to their honeymoon! The guests all held sparklers as the made their way to their vehicle, which had a big banner on the back “just married”
