Eva_Adam-200642

Adam and Eva’s easy summer wedding at Valley Green Inn on the Wissahickon was the epitome of colorful, joyous whimsy, truly unique and absolutely wonderful.  We first met Adam where we find all our best treasures, at Philly Aids Thrift where he works as a manager.  We were fortunate to have one of our favorite engagement sessions at the Italian Market with the couple and knew we were in for a treat photographing their wedding.

Their details were a perfect reflection of the artistic, uniqueness of the pair.  From Eva’s pale grey dress with floral shoes, to Adam’s pink bow tie and Nikes, the bridal party in non-matching dresses (SOMUCHYES!) and everyone’s hand made bouquets and floral crowns.  Paper flowers adorned the archway for an outdoor ceremony on the Wissahickon, oddly perfect with the wrestling figures used as centerpieces on the tables.

This wedding was all about family and friends and laughter.  Eva’s nephew entertained guests pre-ceremony with a spectacular cello rendition of Star Wars pre-ceremony, and the Philly Aid’s Thrift family in attendance were fabulous in every way.  Some weddings you just feel fortunate to be a part of.  Thank you Adam and Eva for allowing us to drop into your life for an unforgettable afternoon.

WARNING!!!  Playing Heart during cake cutting can lead to brilliantly geeky lip syncing.  Trust me on this one.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TIMELINE

I love to blog.  Seriously.  To curl up with my laptop by a sunny window and reflect on my latest favorite shoot is almost as good as actually shooting them.  But as fascinating as I think ALL of our blogs are, it’s easy to get lulled into that wedding blog formula.  We chat about our experiences and post far too many photos from the day.

For this reason, I’ve decided to change it up a bit with some new entries that involve photography tips that are not only perfect for our BWR brides, but for anyone who is planning a wedding, or a fashion shoot or really anything that involves photography!

In the first of this series, we’d like to share our Ideal Timeline for Wedding Photography.  Before publishing this, I posted it in some of those highly secretive Wedding Photographer groups, to get feedback from some of the top wedding photographers all over the country, and the response was overwhelming.  “Why didn’t I think of this?”,  “Perfect”, “Sharing with my couples now” are a few of my favorites.

So if you are planning a wedding, or know someone who is, please feel free to share this timeline by clicking on the following link.  Although your photographer will always work with you to find create a timeline that’s perfect for your day, this is a great general guide to how most wedding photographers like to work and how all those amazing moments are captured.  Enjoy!
