Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Amada | Tomer + Sarah

Wedding

Tomer and Sarah knew what they were doing. After dating for three years and knowing each other even longer, Sarah and Tomer eloped atop a mountain in Virginia, a 3 mile hike where Tomer had popped the question just two months before. It was just them and their officiant, a very close professor who was ordained just for them. It was important that they have something very intimate from day 1.

But where’s the fun in that if there’s not a group of friends and family to help them celebrate their marriage? Enter their reception party help at the delicious Garces restaurant, Amada, in Old City.

It was a chilly December night when their closest 40-something friends and family gathered together for a night of congratulations, drinking, dining, and mingling.

I met up with them a little bit before the party started for a few nighttime pictures in the area.

Tell me you don’t adore Sarah’s party-length ruffled gown and stunner pumps!

And because I couldn’t help but snatch the shoes when I saw Sarah kick them off later in the night.

I am so, so happy for these two. They both have hearts of gold. Sarah is finishing up school to be a vet and Tomer just earned his doctorate. They live with four big, happy puppies in Virginia.

Denise and Mike’s wedding day went off pretty much without a hitch and we even got a few bonuses thrown in too! It was the first time I had ever shot a wedding at the Pyramid Club and I could completely understand why they chose such an incredible venue. So much of it seemed like a whirlwind wince I met them the first time not long before the wedding at their engagement session on Race Street Pier.Denise and Mike got ready at the Sonesta Hotel right on Market Street. I really loved Denise’s details. The purple ring was her grandmother’s. Completely coincidentally, Mike bought her an almost identical ring as a Christmas gift without knowi ...

Philadelphia Wedding Venue Spotlight | Morris House Hotel
There is a secret garden of a wedding venue smack dab in Philadelphia and you would never know about it unless you were looking for it. It’s called the Morris House Hotel (home to M Restaurant) – a sweet boutique bed and breakfast built in the Revolutionary era and exudes colonial elegance. Inside there are 15 rooms, a library, fireplaces, comfy sofas, and a superb staff.But the real highlight is the courtyard. The courtyard garden can host a wedding that you’d never expect downtown: greenery, historic charm (226 years worth), fountains, flowers, ivy, bricks, and steps away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s absolutely perfect fo ...

It’s not every day that I get to show up in a faraway land and just play with colors, textures, and some of the most amazing people in the wedding industry (actually, it happens more than is probably fair!).I was chatting with Sarah of Juniper & Dash late last year and came up with the idea for a beautiful styled wedding shoot inspired by Disney’s new Oz: the Great and Powerful. We led with an emerald green (oh yes, this was before Pantone came out with their color of the year) with accents of glistening gold and poppy red.We gathered a great and powerful team and created a magical shoot that sparkles with details and beauty. The talent ...
