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!

You know that sweet and syrupy holiday that’s coming up next week? The one with the flowers and hearts and naked babies with wings and candy and romance… Yeah, Valentine’s Day. It’s a day that’s been smashed over the head by Hallmark and Godiva but it’s still valuable. I like that we may have absolutely crazy lives filled with hectic jobs and unstable in-laws and teething babies and gassy dogs and home renovations and and and… but we have this arbitrary day that reminds us to make a concerted effort to stop and say, “Hey… I love you.” Maybe you do it all the time but some people need that reminder come February. You don’t need to get al ...

My roster of subjects continues to grow, making me one very lucky photographer.  Last week I got to photograph Hillary Clinton at the Liberty Medal Awards at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

[the value of] Fantastic Event Lighting
The other day I was talking to Becky over at Synergetic Sound + Lighting about my strong feelings towards additional lighting at weddings. I think it does more to a room than any other element.

It’s something that can transform and personalize a venue and ...
