Wedding of Kate and Leon

On October 3, 2009 the city of brotherly love has welcomed a lovely young couple from Maryland. Kate and Leon have travelled to Philadelphia for their wedding. My husband Gene and I have teamed up for this great event.

As I always tell my couples, there are many benefits of having two photographers, but the greatest one of all is the ability to shoot the bride and the groom almost simultaneously during the preparations. It worked out so beautifully for Kate and Leon, because while I was photographing Kate getting ready and looking out the window, Gene has caught the groom looking up at the same window trying to sneak a peak of his bride.

When the limo arrived to the hotel, we took a few group shots and headed downtown.

The first stop was the grand and gorgeous Philadelphia Art Museum.

If you think that running up those famous stairs like Rocky is hard, try it with a wedding dress on! Kate was a real sport about it though! And it was all worth it: the view of the city is absolutely breathtaking from the top of the stairs.

Next, we moved on to Love Park and were pleasantly surprised by a bright pink water in the fountain! It made for a great view.

We then headed back to the Northeast for the ceremony and reception at the popular Emperator restaurant. Lit by the soft intimate light and surrounded with family and friends Kate walked down the isle. The ceremony was warm and touching, causing some tears among the family members. The couple re-entered the hall at the reception with a new glow on their faces. You could tell they are truly happy!
We wish Kate and Leon all the happiness and love in the world!

Wedding of Jacklyn and John

This past Saturday we had the pleasure of shooting a wonderful wedding of Jackie and John! The house was filled with flowers, make-up and excited bridesmaids when I arrived. After some candid shots of the decor and preparations we headed upstairs for a few portraits of the Bride and her bridesmaids. Jackie looked radiant. At the same time the groom has arrived at the church and Ashley (our second photographer) was taking pictures of John and his groomsmen. The ceremony at the Olde Saint Andrew's Church was very touching. Although Jackie and John have known each other for a while, they looked more in love than ever! The rain has threatened our formal outside shoot after the ceremony, but miraculously as the wedding party bus pulled up to Bristol Park, the rain has stopped. The reception was held at the beautiful Brookside Manor. Congratulations Jackie and John!

Graduation Portraits.

Besides doing graduation portrait session at our studio and on location, we are the official photography studio for Bambi Day Care Center and Red Lion Elementary School, where we cover portraits, candid photos and events throughout the year and graduations in May. So, these past months were busy ones for us. While child photography is definitely one of my favorites, graduation portraiture is also one of the most challenging events of the year. Just imagine setting up a group of 25 two-year olds for a perfect shot! How about five or six groups like that? For individual portraits we could definitely get away with a lot less variety in posing, but I am a perfectionist and I refuse to limit the parents to one or two photos. So, we usually end up with 10-12 images per child, plus couple of enhancements and a collage. I also try to include a few shots with siblings and even best friends. It is in essence a mini photo session for each child. So it may be a little over the top, but the parents love it and the kids seem to have fun too!

Baby in the belly...

I am sure all Dads-to-be are quickly realizing how very important it is to make future Mommies happy. But besides the obvious hunger satisfaction and plenty of relaxation time, what else can you do? Well, apparently, many of us forget about such important thing as self-image. Yes, Mommy-to-be needs to feel beautiful, just like anyone else and, while many women enjoy their pregnancy, you would be surprised how many are insecure about their look. It is important to encourage and compliment them all the time. I always recommend pamper packages and definitly a photoshoot to make them feel like stars. Recently I had such a shoot with Kristina who was getting ready to give birth within the next couple of weeks. "You made me look so beautiful" she said afterwards, but I replied: "I did not do anything. You are beautiful and I just captured it for you."

Kristina gave birth to a baby girl, Catherine, on June 5th, 2009. Congratulations! I can't wait to see her and the baby in our studio again!

Wedding of Nicole and Brian

On May 30th Gene (A&G Picture This) and I covered a wedding of Nicole and Brian. While Gene photographed the bride at her house, I got to meet Brian and his buddies at the church. They were a lively group, which made them easy and fun to shoot. Once Nicole has arrived (on a very cool looking limo bus) we proceeded into the church for the ceremony. The reception (held at the Southampton room) was even more fun, filled with dancing, family group shots and some silly candids. Congratulations Nicole and Brian!
