Beach Wedding Photography in Dewey Beach, Delaware: Brittany + Justin

Wedding

No, no, not that Brittany and Justin. This Brittany and Justin are a gorgeous couple, completely fun loving and hilarious, had a beautiful wedding in Dewey Beach, Delaware and yours truly had the honor of photographing it! You should remember them from their engagement session a few months ago.

I started with the ladies around the corner from the venue. Brittany wore a stunning Maggie Sottero slim line gown with some of the most incredible back detailing I’ve seen. A dancer, it fit her form like a glove.

The bridesmaids wore beachy turquoise dresses with great accessories.

The bridal party carried flowers in a fiery orange, Brittany with calla lilies and orchids wrapped in raffia.

Meanwhile, the guys made their way over to the venue, Venus on the Half Shell. It’s a fantastic space with a waterfront view and a unique Moroccan and vibrant vibe inside. I can absolutely understand why this had to be the place for them!

Their wedding was held on the beach under a tent as clouds loomed outside.

I love this look that he gives her that says nothing less than complete adoration.

Justin got into a very serious accident mere weeks before the wedding. Incredibly, he pulled through and looked quite charming as a groom up there. You’d never know if it weren’t for his bandaged hand. And yes, Brittany was still able to get the ring on.

I love this shot that my second shooter, Sean, was able to get from the other side of the kiss!

I really dig that we had some great overcast skies as a background for our pictures. The soft light and moody conditions were clutch. We didn’t have a single drop fall on us.

Venus on the Half Shell looked great. All of the turquoise and orange accessories blended seamlessly into the funky décor.

The toasts were funny and heartfelt. It was actually the first time I’ve ever seen a toast read off of an iPhone.

And you know me, if I have a chance to get food shots, I will!

What your photographer (especially this one) wants you to know
This isn’t my first rodeo. Here is some advice to my future couples get the best pictures possible on your wedding day:Getting ready:• Bring a clean copy of your invitation.• Have music playing while you and your entourage are prepping. It makes things better.• Clean your room! Empty water bottles, undies, mussed bedsheets, dress bags, half eaten food, and the tornado of stuff you brought in probably isn’t the background you’re going for. Or arrange to move into another room to put on your gown. • Hire a professional make-up artist, not just a nice friend or relative. A professional will know how to make sure you look good all day long ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Morris House Hotel | Elise + Eric
Elise and Eric wanted their wedding day to be super low key.  Well, Elise did.  She would have happily eloped.  Eric is more of a traditionalist.   This combination resulted in a gorgeous fall wedding day for the two at the Morris House Hotel with 49 guests. I was enamored of Elise’s cloudlike wedding gown that breezed behind her as she walked.  It had a floral embroidered top set against an illusion neckline and back.  She wore the daintiest set of pearls – a meaningful strand that has been in her family for ages. Elise bemoaned the fact that white wedding shoes were so hard to find.  I don’t understand th ...
