As a past couple once said, ” They have such an innate ability to make you feel instantly comfortable with them!”, which then results in the most natural, beautiful images!
“Natural. In the sense that it is completely focused on having my clients be themselves. I may use the natural light of the room or I may create dramatic, epic lighting. In all of the photographs, the common theme is having my couple not feel posed. I want them to hold each other like they would when snuggling on the couch, laugh at each other’s jokes, dance together like no one else is there. All of these pieces are what makes a photo magical. “ See her “Romantic, City-Chic Engagement Session”
From Kim: “This world, your lives, my own life and the people I love — I can’t help but photograph it. What started as a curiosity and a fun past time as a kid, and no I won’t tell you how long ago that was, has turned into a passionate career over my lifetime. Besides being a mom, nothing makes me feel more alive and like I am fulfilling my life’s purpose than when I pick up my camera. I have been photographing weddings, families, corporate events and everyday life for as long as I can remember. I was still a child when I picked up my first camera and had that feeling like ‘oh…this. this is something of me.’ Not just what I love to do, but like ‘this is who I am.'”
From Alli: “You can thank my Irish dad and Italian mom for turning me into a wedding photographer in Philadelphia. Family first, and yep, Catholic mass or bust. I grew up looking forward to every time my entire extended family could be in the same room. What’s a wedding? Everyone you love in the same place. One of the first weddings I ever shot ended with everyone singing their family’s traditional Irish drinking song. The second? I ended up sitting next to the bride’s grandmother who spoke only Italian and well, the rest is history. I had officially found a job in my happy place. Being a wedding photographer provides me with remarkable insight into the human experience. I believe that movement and laughter create the drama that makes moments real. Our experiences are the reason for the stories that build us. Documenting your wedding is about much more than imagery; it is sharing that experience with you, your family, and your friends. I see every wedding as an opportunity for a new experience that will in turn build me as well.”
From Colin, describing his style: “Honest and real. I believe weddings are much more than cakes and flowers. My style starts with getting to know the people who are going to be in front of my lens. I want to spend quality time on that part, so when they get there I can capture them in the most genuine way possible. I want a couples’ photos to reflect what matters to them and who they are in this time of their life. I also love capturing laughter and silliness, and the unspoken things that weddings bring to the table. I think a person in love and a person laughing uncontrollably show vulnerability in different ways. Vulnerability makes for awesome, goosebump-making photographs.”
We love Aly’s super strong and film-like photography. Aly is passionate and excited about capturing those intimate, in-between moments of your love story. Focusing on real emotion and expression, she can preserve those feelings for a lifetime.
From Daniel: “One of my past couples said it best, ‘He’s so much more than a photographer. He’s along for your journey, not just the wedding day. So when he arrives it’s like hanging out with an old friend.'”
What we love about Daniel is how he can create the most unique and epic photos in some of the most photographed places. Whether it’s city hall, broad street, or any of the many city parks, He’ll create something no one has seen before.

From Brandi: “My goal as a photographer is to give each client a special and significant experience as a way to capture their own, personal story. I become friends with every couple I work with and through this friendship I document their love exactly how it exists- unique, sometimes messy, always beautiful, and one of a kind. While posing definitely has its place, I truly do believe that the best images happen in-between the poses, they are the images that you won’t even realize I am clicking my shutter for. You’ll be doing a lot of laughing, running, and probably some dancing too.”
