First Dances and a Few More Finds

Wedding

I like weddings. I truly enjoy them. Being a wedding photographer is magical. Think about it: I get paid to participate in a couple’s incredibly meaningful day surrounded by friends and family and there are tons of beautiful little details everywhere for my camera and me.

With that in mind, I wanted to share some fun weddingy things. I simply couldn’t resist posting these. I found the first on reddit.com, a site of user-submitted articles and clips that people find from all over. Here are some very fun first dances at weddings. Enjoy!

Hilariously fun

Totally creative

Classically 80s

Getting the whole wedding party involved

There are quite a few good ones out there with music from Austin Powers, Footloose, Pulp Fiction, Jack Johnson/Michael Jackson, California Love, MC Hammer, and a few mixes in between.

Sooo much fun.

I’m going to try to post more non-photo stuff just to keep you updated and show you little bits that I find interesting. I’ll try to remember to post good links in the side bar.

Here’s one more thing: Threadless. They make very cool t-shirts and right now they’re having a $10 sale on almost all of their shirts. Definitely check them out.

* p.s. I’m not affiliated with any of these companies. I just like em!

Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Kat + Dan
Kat and Dan married on a crisp, sunny day in December at one of my favorite venues in the area, Aldie Mansion.  The space was perfect for Kat who looked like she stepped out of a glamorous 1920s novel.  Her soft blonde hair fell along her face with an antique hair clasp.  Her gown (the 49th one she tried on!) was an incredible lace and beaded number that had been discontinued but she sourced and brought in.  The fluttering sleeves and delicate lace along the bottom were additions and I can’t imagine the dress without them. Leave it to Kat to accessorize with deep red, velvet pumps. She ...

Wedding in Carmel with Julie Cheshire
The other week I shot a wedding with the lovely Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography down in Carmel at Mission Ranch. As you will see, Mission Ranch is just beautiful.Loren got ready in the honeymoon cottage. It was an adorable little house just large enough for all of the girls to get gussied up. Loren is simply beautiful and I love, love, love her hairstyle. The flower girl was cute as a button. That face in the lower left was when she saw Loren’s dress for the first time. She looked like a little princess herself.The ceremony site was down a path and over a bridge with a spectacular and private view of a field and the bay in the distan ...
