Melissa & Nick’s wedding was held on a picture perfect summer day in June at The Carriage House at Rockwood Park in Wilmington, Delaware. The Carriage House is one of my personal favorite venues. There are countless locations for photos here….the grounds are just beautiful. Melissa, Nick and Misty and I took full advantage of the time we all had set aside for their wedding day portraits following the first look in the garden. Melissa looked stunning in her dress….it fit her perfectly and she seemed to have been made to wear that particular gown. The ceremony and cocktail hour were held just before sundown and as the night came guests filtered into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. Melissa & Nick, thank you for having us. These are some of my favorite recent wedding photos! Thank you both for trusting me to capture everything on your wedding day. Enjoy your photos!
Max loves the color purple. He wears a purple shirt (we have dozens) every day. He wears purple sneakers……every day. For Halloween he wanted to be a purple circle…..so he was. And when asked what kind of birthday party he wanted to have this year…..the response….as you might expect was…..”A Purple Party”! And so it was done. We had a purple party in our back yard for Max’s third birthday early in June. Purple was everywhere and everyone that came to the party wore purple. Max even got almost all purple gifts. It really was very nice to see so many of his friends and family happy to participate in sticking to the color theme of the party. Max loved every second of it. And the next day….on his actual birthday we took a trip with Grandpa to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden. Of course Max wore his favorite color as he always does. Happy 3rd birthday to our little man and the best big brother in the world. We love you 217.
Mary and Alex met at Penn State, they live in New York, they had their engagement session in Bucks County and the wedding will be this September in Queens. Lots of places. But for this post we have one place…..Yardley in Bucks County. We started late one afternoon when it was still in the upper 90s. I was worried for Alex as he was wearing long sleeves and jeans. But once we got started and the sun began sinking the heat wasn’t really all that bad and we ended up sharing one of the nicest of summer evenings together. And at one point just before sunset we all kind of stopped what we were doing to just take in the beautiful setting of the farm we were on. This session was full of incredible light and lots of laughs. I am excited to share these photos. See you in September Mary and Alex.
A few weeks back we spent a couple of days down the shore in LBI with our good friends Mike and Morgan. Mike is not only my friend but he is a top notch accountant…..and he is my accountant. I cannot say enough good things about him as an accountant. I can’t say MANY good things about him as a friend……Oh, snap! If you are ever looking for an accountant please e-mail me, I would love to be able to connect you with Michael. Anyway, since we spent a few days with Mike, Morgan and their two girls we figured why not squeeze in a family shoot on the beach in LBI. It was also Michael & Morgan’s 9th wedding anniversary….and coincidentally Dawn and I spent the day with these guys just recently on OUR wedding anniversary. Finding good friends is a treasure and we love spending time with you guys! Enjoy your photos.
I have been friends with and photographing Brooke and Chris since before they were married. They are always so great in front of the camera and every session I’ve done with them has resulted in some of the favorite photos that I’ve ever captured. Form their engagement session, to the wedding to the maternity photos/Adrian’s birth (which happened within about 12 hours of each other) to this session with their newborn daughter, Sienna…..each time we come away with such great photos! You guys it has been a pleasure being your friend and it’s a joy to be invited back to photograph each major step in your family’s story. Here’s to baby #3…..get crackin!
