Although we built our business on non-traditional, off beat weddings, we’ve recently developed a love for those classic, timeless weddings with couples who love romantic elegance in their weddings while staying true to our aesthetic of fresh, modern photography.  Our classic weddings still incorporate lots of photojournalistic candids, but with more classic poses and portraiture.

Teri and Bj’s classic Philly wedding was an absolutely perfect, effortless day.  This Jersey girl and her southern gentleman (titles lovingly lifted from their super cool specialty cocktails, complete with cotton candy rock candy), fell in love while in a career training program in Virginia, let fate decide their future and were both transferred to Philly.
We got to know Teri and Bj during their perfect engagement shoot  which includes some of my all time favorite night portraits at the Museum of Art, and quickly learned what they loved most, their dogs “Mr B” and “Sparky” and classic Philly landmarks,  all of which would play an important role on their wedding day.
The Hotel Monaco is one of my favorite elegant venues for classic philly weddings.  The large suites and modern decor make for beautiful backgrounds, their receptions are lovely and their staff friendly and accommodating to guests and vendors alike.  We began our day at The Hotel Monaco, jumped on the party bus and headed out for a beautiful ceremony at St Frances Xavier.  I love when couples make space for us to travel with them.  It’s another opportunity for great photos en route, and makes the most of our time post ceremony.  Teri and Bj left lots of time for photos after the ceremony and being able to travel together, makes it easy to dip in and out of spots for photos, which included the Museum of Art, Broad Street and Second Bank.  Then back to the hotel for family photos with time to spare for our couple to enjoy their fabulous cocktail party on the rooftop of the Monaco.  Such a perfect day to start our 2016 wedding season, we were absolutely thrilled and honored to be part of it.

Stephanie-57Stephanie and Tom’s fall wedding at Moorestown Community House was filled with sentimental touches and family that made the day a truly special celebration.  The day began at Stephanie getting ready at her grandmother’s house, sitting at her vanity,being carefully watched by the family cat and surrounded by the photos from her childhood.  We had lots of time for shots with the girls and her family in the front yard. The bridemaid’s eggplant dresses and bright sunflowers one of my favorite color combinations of the fall season.  After being wed in an intimate ceremony at Grace Episcopal ChurchMoorestown Community House was the perfect backdrop for fun bridal party photos.  We found an easy spot for a few lovely shots of the bride and groom without having to leave the warmth and hospitality of the reception.  Wonderful candlelight, fall decor and foods rounded out the evening as the bride and groom danced the night away.  So much fun!
