A Philadelphia/King of Prussia, PA Wedding at Sheraton Valley Forge | Julianna and Vasken

 

Meeting a couple on the day of their wedding can make you a little nervous. Pulling up to where they groomsmen are getting ready and a few of them standing on the front step with swords, a little confusing. Yes, I said swords.  Vasken and his groomsmen are into cosplay. Once I was ready to start shooting, the guys were ready to their picture. Posing and making faces the whole time.

After a handful of groomsmen photos, they were ready to head over to the church and what better way to take a fun group, than a school bus!

St. Francis DeSales Church in Philadelphia was the perfect ceremony spot for Julianna and Vasken’s traditional wedding.

It’s time for a little bit of fun and the bridal party photos at a beautiful hotel in King of Prussia.

Blackwood, NJ Doggie Cake Smash | Zoey

Blackwood, NJ Doggie Cake Smash | Zoey

 

My crazy, loveable black lab was born on May 1st eight years ago. While she can drive me up a wall, I love taking her for walks and playing at the park. I could not celebrate her birthday without a doggie cake smash session. While Zoey loves food, she was not too sure of her cake at first. In the end she loved it just as much as her brother Timmy.

Washington Township Lake Park Family Portraits

It’s a beautiful spring day and the sun is shining bright, but not as bright as the Ortiz family. They got out of the car in full smiles and already laughing. We started our short hike to the Washington Lake Park, or as I like to call it the secret lake; not many people realize it is hidden behind the first lake. We started our session off on the dock, before moving over to the trails. Everyone was having fun, although I’m pretty sure their favorite part was once we headed back out towards the athletic fields. Alexis and Joshua have played sports for years, so portraits on the fields made them feel right at home. I think everyone’s favorite photo before they even saw it, was when I told them to “tackle” mom; don’t worry they were nice.

Prom at the Adventure Aquarium | Camden, NJ | Lauren + Mark

Prom at the Adventure Aquarium

Camden, NJ | Lauren + Mark

I love getting to work with my clients again and this time Lauren was all dressed up in her gorgeous red two piece prom gown, ready to prom at the Adventure Aquarium. We did her portraits in her backyard, which has a lake! The water in the background was beautiful, but all eyes were on Lauren and Mark. When I arrived they were already taking family pictures, it was pretty hot outside so I was glad to see they were hiding in the shade.

 

Mark and Lauren figured out how they wanted to walk out for promenade. I had to capture the twirling and laughs, as everyone there was helping the two of them decide which would be the best spin.

A Blue Bell, PA Wedding at Normandy Farms | Lauren and Matthew

A Blue Bell, PA Wedding at Normandy Farms | Lauren and Matthew

 

Where do I even being about this wedding?! It was a rainy October day, but the smiles and laughter coming from the groomsmen when I arrived, showed a little bit of rain was not going to stop this couple’s special day. This was only my second time working with only the groomsmen and I was not sure how to do getting ready pictures, when they were already dressed. I had met the guys at the St. Matthias Catholic Church in Bala Cynwyd, PA, inside was beautiful just like out of the story books. I didn’t feel that this would tell their story as the groomsmen. We headed to the steps and the cloudy spitting skies to get some funny and serious pictures.

When I told the guys to be themselves and do a “silly” picture, one of the groomsmen pulled out his keys and handed them to Matthew. I heard him say laughing, “This is your last chance to get out of this.” Don’t worry the groomsmen also gave Lauren the out if she wanted it too. 🙂

After a beautiful ceremony and pictures at the church, we headed to Normandy Farms. I was excited to see the venue as I had not been there before. The Silos Ballroom was decorated with white string lights, mason jars and pumpkins as the centerpieces with some of the tables having flowers that matched the bridesmaids bouquets. I loved the s’mores party favors with the tag that said,

“Sending you home with

S’More Love

Lauren & Matthew”

How cute is that? What an adorable favor for an elegant country vibe wedding!

They danced the night away with their family and friends, only stopping to do the bouquet and garter toss, and of course the cutting of a wonderful cake that featured their two fur babies.

Lauren and Matthew closed the night with a tribute slow dance for the people that meant so much to them but passed away. They had me tearing up as they entered the dance floor with Cole Swindell’s “You Should Be Here” playing and everyone slowy joining them.

Congratulations Matthew and Lauren!

Here’s to many more amazing memories!

Prom at The Mansion on Main Street | Renae + Tom

Prom at The Mansion on Main Street Voorhees, NJ | Renae + Tom

 

It’s PROM!! Well it was on Friday night for Tom and Renae, talk about looking a-maz-ing! I know I have said this before about them in last year’s Junior and Senior prom posts, but with it being their last and final prom, it was a different kind of feeling. Yes, I just said last and final prom, Tom and Renae are a year apart in school so this was their fourth high school prom. I thought going to my two proms was overwhelming, but Renae and Tom made all of their glamorous nights look so easy.

 

Tom looked handsome in his all black suit with a white jacket. He also borrowed a friends car so he could drive Renae around in style. Renae’s ivory lace and blush Jovani dress was gorgeous and showed off her tan beautifully. They danced and twirled under the lovely willows and whispered secrets on the bridge.

Marlton, NJ Three Month Old Pictures | Easton

 

When you’re a new mom you want all the pictures you can have of your new bundle of joy. After all, they change so much in just the first three months. I joined Erin and her son Easton at their home, for his three month session. Our session was actually on the day Easton turned three months, which was fun and doesn’t happen often.

Because Easter was not too far away from when we did our session, we included in some easter fun with Easton’s three month old session.

Gloucester Township, NJ High School Senior Portraits | Tom

Gloucester Township, NJ High School Senior Portraits | Tom

 

Getting to work with high school seniors and learning about their passions is amazing. Lately, I have been working with a lot of athletes, many of them like Tom play more than one sport. Tom has been a soccer player since he was allowed to start playing, and when he got to high school he started wrestling. I meet Tom a few years ago and have worked with him the past two fall seasons for his soccer action collages.

This time around I got to go out on a shoot with Tom to his high school’s bleachers, so many football games watched from those seats. Not to mention all of the games that he got to play on that field, with the fans in the stands cheering Tom and his team on. While Tom is a star on the soccer field he is also a champion wrestler, this year Tom took #1 in his district for wrestling.

Good luck next year Tom in the beginning of your college journey and PA career.

 

 

 

 

Love and Joy.

An Athlete’s Prom | Washington Township, NJ

An Athlete’s Prom in Washington Township, NJ

 

For me, I loved playing sports, hiking, and camping, the pictures I took at prom were kind of like my school pictures. In front of a backdrop that looked nice, but told no story as to who I was.  That’s when I got the idea prom pictures should be taken at a place that means something to you and your date.

PROM… it’s like a magical word when you’re in high school. It kind of is! The glitz and glamour, the dresses and hair do’s, the tux’s; OF COURSE it’s one of the highlights of Junior and Senior year! And why wouldn’t it be? In my area, prom is like a mini wedding, but that makes for a very memorable night.

If you are an athlete, why not combine the glamour of prom with your passion?! When Renae asked me to do her pictures for her junior prom, I incorporated soccer since her and her date have played pretty much their whole lives. A year later we headed out with a few of Renae’s friends and played off the athlete’s glamorous night.

 

Shannon and Erin play softball, while Renae is a soccer player; being able to show off their love of sports and love of fashion was so much fun.

 

Love and Joy.
