Philadelphia Event Photographer | Glen Foerd Mansion | ABC Meeting

Business

I had the pleasure of photographing the Association of Bridal Consultants’ meeting at Glen Foerd Mansion last week. Phyllis Jablonowski of Eventricity Floral and Event Design gave an impressive presentation on tabletop planning and setup, instructing the group on an array of napkin folds, proper table setting and spacing, rules for centerpiece design for optimal flow and appeal, and so many more tidbits. It was the perfect size group for an event like this. Coordinators were asking questions, offering advice, and bringing up trends and concerns within the industry. I felt quite lucky to be let into the thought processes going on in the room.

Here are some images from Philly’s gorgeous Glen Foerd on the Delaware. I’ve shot at this Conroy Catering venue a few times now and it always charms me with its intimate rooms filled with historic pieces and character in every corner. The gallery upstairs boasts original art pieces by Monet, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh. You’d never know that this Victorian beauty were there unless you were looking for it.

Thanks again to Rebecca Richman of Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants and Lynda Barness of I Do Wedding Consulting for inviting me to photograph the event!

If nothing else I learned: never put that freaking napkin inside the glass!

We’re talking consultation, boudoir/newborn shooting space, office, etc. I need to curate some pieces for the walls now that the basic structure is in place. I absolutely love it! I sit on the big comfy sofa and just breathe it in. It’s all mine and it’s amazing. I took a few snapshots on that foggy morning we had the other day. Technically the leaves should be raked, but I love the colors and textures and messiness of them.These beautiful, original doors were in the basement of the house for who knows ...

[the value of] a Professional
This is a story of one very amateur crafter who knew her place in the world.It begins with a giddy couple and their brand new house. Their heritage (her a Scot, he a Jew) made the name of their Philly castle quite obvious: Glen Yiddish. She loved all things Pinterest and set about to make a plaque for their abode. She found slate on a string, some paint, a font she loved, and figured, “how hard could this be?”She made an attempt to lightly imprint a reverse image onto the slate (genius, right?). Not so much.Our heroine flipped it over and attempted to just free-hand it. Splotches were made. Mistakes were, um, "revised" with more paint. ...
