St. Thomas of Villanova is a gorgeous church and it was the perfect setting for Annie and Billy’s ceremony. Like other couples we have had the honor to photograph in St. Thomas’s, the ceremony is typically filled with intimate and joy filled moments to those being married. Just like Annie and Billy, most of the couples getting married in the church previously attended Villanova University or their parents were married there, so there is always a great story linking the people to the church. Annie & Billy were no different. These Villanova grads had a ceremony full of laughter and tears. These joyous seconds in time are the moments we pride ourselves on capturing. It’s through these images we have documented for Annie and Billy that they will be able to remember, relive, and share these moments for many years to come. I love that our couples can relive, though our images the amazing day they had!
Following the ceremony everyone celebrated at one of my favorite places on the Main Line, the Overbrook Golf Club. Overbrook Golf Club is an elegant setting for a wedding… The clubhouse sits up on a hill overlooking a beautiful landscape, which by the way makes for some spectacular sunset photographs. Jimmy Bartorillo and his team never seize to amaze us… As we strolled along the tree lined driveway and through the grounds with Annie & Billy, the staff from Overbrook followed close behind with cocktails, always catering to every need of their couples.
Thank you Annie and Billy for asking us to be part of your day and for allowing us to document such a wonderful celebration!

It was the perfect day for a wedding at Meadowlands Country Club in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Between the greens of the country club and the slightly defused sunlight that was shining that day, we got some unbelievable photographs of Becca and Jordan.
I love hearing the best man and maid of honor speeches, it gives me insight into many aspects of the couple that I don’t always pick up. The best part of the speeches, to me, come when Becca and Jordan catch each other’s eye and make that all-knowing and loving smile or laugh. Its one of the moments I look for; yet, it always stops me in my tracks.
The folks at Meadowlands Country Club did a wonderful job and made sure Becca and Jordan’s day was perfect. Their party was smashing with Jellyroll on stage. Kurt and the crew play one hell of a hora and definitely know how to keep a dance floor jamming all night long. Well done Jellyroll, it was great working with you again.
Becca and Jordan were a pleasure to work with and photograph. Everything went smoothly from the wedding ceremony to reception. Thanks for having us be part of your day!

Normally Philadelphia’s City Hall is the main sight; however, on this day Janelle and Jason’s wedding out staged the historical city’s cites.
I was recently pulling images from previous weddings, and I kept coming back to Janelle and Jason’s. It’s hard to believe that an entire year has past since they celebrated their wedding day. As I was flipping through their wedding photos, I couldn’t help myself from pulling these to share.
I enjoyed looking back through Janelle and Jason’s images and reading their facial expressions. I could see the pure joy and love radiating from both of their faces. The sunlight over Philadelphia hit them just right as we traveled around the city to get perfect photographs.
Janelle and Jason have a sharp eye for attention to detail. The wedding and reception was tied together so nicely; the wedding colors were present in everything from custom stationary, stunning floral arrangements by Eventricity, right down to Jason’s socks! The bright fuchsia stripes were just one detail that highlighted the happy couple’s personality. When the time came, Jason patiently waited for Janelle to walk down a glowing candle lit aisle to become his wife. The Cescaphe Ballroom managed to transform the wedding venue into a HOPPIN’ reception in no time at all. The Cescaphe team never fails to roll out the red carpets on their food spreads; the cocktail hour alone could be confused for an amazing dinner spread!
Janelle and Jason– I hope this entire year has been a honeymoon for the two of you, and that every year to come continues to be that way. Congratulations, and happy anniversary!

The Ballroom at the Ben was the perfect setting for Lindsey and Greg’s Philadelphia wedding. The architecture and warmth of the space matched the love Lindsey and Greg shared for each other. Working with this couple was easy and lots of fun! From our phone calls to their engagement session and wedding, each experience got better. Lindsey and Greg were a joy to work with, I recall asking them more than once if they had done this before…
Our day started at The Bellevue where Lindsey and Greg prepared for their wedding day. I enjoyed being there to document the time that Lindsey and her family shared while getting dressed. Tim, from Video One Productions, was there with me to capture on film the many moments that made this day special. One such moment played out when Lindsey and Greg saw each other for the first time. It was great to be able to photograph the excitement, anticipation, emotion, and love in their reactions; here and throughout the day. The weather, lighting, and locations throughout Philadelphia were perfect for creating images for this couple.
The Ballroom at the Ben set the stage for the wedding ceremony and the ROCKIN’ reception! The Finley catering team pulled out all the stops to make sure Lindsey and Greg’s day was everything they imagined and more. I always enjoy working with the Finley family because their presentation and service is always top notch! The beautiful architecture of the Ben Franklin House makes the perfect backdrop for photographs. Every detail from food, decor, lighting, and music was ideal. Jellyroll was once again in the house to rock the packed dance floor. They sure know how to get people out of their seats to move! It was a perfect ending to a perfect day.
Lindsey and Greg, I am grateful for the many phone calls and emails while I was in Mexico to make sure I would be there to photograph your day. It was great to work with such a lovely and photogenic couple.
