Rachel + Matthew | Romantic Charleston Wedding


I was so honored when Rachel and Matthew asked me to travel down to picturesque Charleston, South Carolina for their May wedding. I knew I couldn't pass up the chance at photographing a wonderful couple in such a historic and pristine location!

Their day couldn't have been more perfect. We lucked out with beautiful warm weather and bright blue skies. Rachel rented out a gorgeous carriage house on Rutledge Avenue to get ready in, which made for the most amazing pre-wedding photos! We photographed their first look in the house's courtyard, which felt intimate and effortless. In fact, most of the day had that relaxed feeling, which is just how they wanted it to be.

Kala from MOD Events Charleston planned a stunning ceremony and reception at the Pavilion at Pepper Plantation. The dusty blue and ivory palette was perfectly accented by the lush greenery in their florals. One of my favorite parts of the event design was the white drapery she looped in and out of the wood ceiling beams. It really helped add some light and a touch of drama to the space.

Rachel and Matthew were married lakeside with all of their family and friends—from both near and far—surrounding them. So many personal touches were incorporated in their wedding, including little hints of Philadelphia in their reception to make some of their guests feel right at home. The "LOVE" sign above their sweetheart table was a tasteful touch, and so was the delicious Philly cheesesteak bar.

Thank you Rachel and Matt for including me in documenting your wedding day! I wish you nothing but the best in your life together!

Kirstyn + Anthony | Elegant and Emotional Doylestown Wedding | Bucks County Wedding Photographer


Kirstyn and Anthony are one of those couples that are just contagious—they can make you laugh, cry, party hard, or simply relax just by being next to them! It's no doubt these two are meant for each other. I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding day in late April, where we shot at the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works in Doylestown, Pennsylvania (heaven!) prior to their ceremony at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and reception at Blue Bell Country Club. The couple chose a neutral palette accented by a rich navy blue and golds, which shot beautifully against their venues. I hope you enjoy this wedding as much as we did!

Lauren + Rudy | Romantic Meets Classic Wedding at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer


I'm so happy to share Lauren + Rudy's wedding day with you. They were the most wonderful clients to work with—SO laid back, calm, and trusting in their professional team! Their early spring wedding was at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve in West Chester, Pennsylvania on a gorgeous, breezy day. Lauren looked like a dream in her fitted lace gown from Elizabeth Johns Couture, and Rudy handsome as ever in a classic all-black tuxedo. Hints of dusty lilac and buttery tones of white and cream accented their day in the best way. I am so thankful that Lauren and Rudy chose us to capture their stunning wedding day and I hope you enjoy their photos!

Allison + PJ | Stunning, Classic, Minimal Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer


I've known Allison since grade school and can truly say that she is such an intelligent, independent, and beautiful woman. I'm so happy that she's found her match in PJ. The pair make the classiest couple and their wedding was nothing short of that, too. Allison + PJ were married at the newly-remodeled Ritz-Carlton in Philadelphia this February. A photographer's dream, the spaces inside were nothing but elegant, light-filled and lined with marble. Since day one of chatting with her, the bride envisioned a romantic evening with white candles lit everywhere and lots of lush greenery—the perfect compliment to the neutral palette of the Ritz that she was working against. It turned out just gorgeous, and we were lucky enough to get a kiss of snow at the end of the night. Allison + PJ, thank you both for the privilege of capturing your love story! I wish you all the best in your journey together!
