Happy 2011!

There’s so much to say about 2010. I’ve been back in the Philly area for two years now and can hardly believe how lovingly I’ve been welcomed and embraced by my old home. I showed up in December 2008 – the recession had just hit and things were bad. I knew merely a handful of people around here and absolutely no professional connections to help me get established. 2009 was rough for all of us. I wondered if I’d made the right decision in moving from San Francisco. I had forgotten how cold this area could get. I missed my friends on the west coast. But I also photographed some beautiful weddings. I started meeting other wedding people. I began to understand the differences in east coast vs. west coast weddings.

2010 was looking up. Brides found LDP through friends and family, wedding coordinators, other wedding vendors, online review sites, and bridal fairs. I shot weddings all over the area. From an 8 person wedding to a guest list of 300. It was a great year.

Not only that but I moved to a new address, got in better shape, ran a half marathon, raised money for multiple sclerosis, and built stronger friendships.

And now we’re at 2011 and I’m blown away by how lucky I’ve been. I rang in the new year with an incredible couple (congrats, Trish & Tom!) and a truly awesome wedding. My calendar is filling up with the most amazing couples (you’ll see!). They’re laid back, hilarious, adorable and (knock on wood) don’t seem to have one ounce of bridezilla to them. I’m thrilled for the new venues I’ll see this year and psyched to see familiar faces at reception facilities and in bridal parties.

So much has happened in the past 2 years and I’m just amazed. Amazed and grateful. Thank you to each and every one of you – family member, friend, bride, groom, coordinator, florist, DJ, etc.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

The Bridal Event in Willow Grove
I just wanted to put up a quick blog post thanking all of you wonderful brides who came out to the Willow Grove Mall Bridal Show this past Sunday. Tim and I chatted with over sixty brides and grooms with wedding dates from May 2009 to October 2011!I continue to be awed by the love, excitement, and preparation that I see in preparing for "the Big Day".I wanted to take pictures during the show but we were simply too busy so here are a few shots before the madness began…I got some fresh daffodils for the last show. This time the flowers du jour were bright red gerbera daisies.Some of the details…(Shout out to my absolutely awesome graphic desi ...

I think it's shameful how we treat Necco candy. We're so fickle. February comes along and we're all about the Sweethearts (a.k.a. conversation hearts). There will be 8 billion hearts produced this year. It's one of the most popular Valentine's Day candies. I love em.Just 8 short months later and Necco Wafers are grouped with Bit-o-Honey, raisins, and circus peanuts for "least desirable Halloween trades". Even candy corn gets more respect!Those wafers are the same thing as the hearts, you know. Dust and all.This February when you're gaga over those hard little candies, put a few aside for October (trust me, the taste won't change) ...

Summer no more. Sure, we may have a few hot days but the leaves are turning from their vibrant greens to blazing reds, oranges, and yellows. It's definitely fall in the Northeast and everyone knows it. This is my busiest month of the year. With colors like these and temperate weather, the conditions are perfect for weddings.Go on some evening strolls while you still can. This is the time of year to put all of your senses in overdrive: take in the incredible colors, breathe in that crisp autumn air, stock up on spiced cider, carve pumpkins, hoot and holler at the postseason baseball games, roast marshmallows, jump in a pile of leaves, bra ...
