Main Line Wedding Photographer | Chester Valley Golf Club | Andrea + John

Wedding

Andrea scrunches her nose when she laughs hard and John can’t keeps his eyes off of Andrea when she walks into the room. This all began in 6th grade when Andrea called dibs on the new guy. John asked her out in the parking lot of St. Norbert’s in 8th grade and it was there that they married a few weeks ago. Check out more of the back story of their courtship and engagement session pictures here.

Andrea and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ house in Malvern. Her mother’s garter was her something borrowed and her grandmother’s handkerchief was her old and blue. Her incredible satin gown was the first one she tried on at the third shop.

Meanwhile, the guys were doing their thing at John’s parents’ house in Berwyn.

I loved the stained glass windows in this beautiful Catholic church in Paoli.

The priest likened marriage to SCUBA diving, a pastime that they share.

The day was a little warm but the grounds of Chester Valley Golf Club were lush and gorgeous and perfect for formals (used loosely here) and pictures of the newlyweds.

The bridal party was a hoot.

Andrea and John danced their first song together to “Then” by Brad Paisley. I really don’t think they could have picked a more perfect song.

And then John’s younger brother, Truett, stole the show with an awesome speech that had everyone laughing and crying. I’ve heard a lot of speeches. This one was one of the best!

Andrea had warned me that John’s side comprised of serious partiers. How right she was. The dancefloor was bumping all through the reception.

Sometime during the reception, I took this picture of Andrea and John (both hardcore blinkers). I thought it was so hilariously unattractive and told them not to worry, that I’d delete it. Their response: No way, you have to keep it! I love these two!

Andrea and John, congratulations on a beautiful wedding and here’s to many, many, many more years together!

Now you’re my whole life
Now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe
The way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then
~ Brad Paisley, “Then”

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Philadelphia City Hall | Jihye + Matt
If you wake up on your wedding day and it is overcast you should rejoice that you have the biggest, most flattering softbox possible. On this particular cloudy day, I was photographing Jihye and Matt’s wedding at Philadelphia City Hall. These images are pure dreamy. They belong in magazines and on book covers. It was chilly that day but the quality of light was creamy and wonderful!I met them at Race Street Pier for some pictures of just the two of them before the vows. We had the place all to ourselves. I couldn’t get enough of Jihye’s sleek chiffon wedding dress. She came up with the concept for it and had it made here in Philly.I lea ...

Philadelphia Bridals Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Vanessa
Gather round, you Northerners. Let me tell you about a special kind of photography session called Bridals. Quite simply, these are pictures taken before the wedding of the beautiful bride in her beautiful wedding dress. It’s a great opportunity to get more use out of that gown and see how it feels to wear it, walk in it, sit in it, and twirl in it. Knowing it it’ll ride up (or down) is great for dealing with alterations before the big day. And if you tie it in with your hair and makeup trial, bonus! (If you’re already married, don’t fret – you can always do an after session/love shoot or a trash the dress and wear that fabulous frock again!) ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | FDR Park | Christina + Eli
Not ones to be tied down by (any) tradition or superstition, Christina and Eli had the wedding so many only dare to dream about – 100% their way.  It was a refreshing and beautiful take on such an important and personal day with sweet, sentimental flourishes and nods to different cultures and religions as these two joined together.  I feel lucky to know them as friends and to have been invited in as one of the lucky ones, along with Gary or Gary Nevitt Photography (his take on the wedding on his blog), to play such a special role in their day. We, all of us, started at the Hotel Monaco that morning.  If you’re marrying the love of your lif ...
