CHOP Christmas Party

It’s the holiday season! And for the past few years, we’ve been involved with a wonderful organization designed to give children the holiday cheer. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia – Voorhees Division, hosts an annual Christmas party and we’ve been honored to be a part of it! The great volunteers and incredible staff at CHOP cater to the needs of the families and of the children afflicted with leukemia, cancer, and other illnesses.

We look forward to the CHOP Christmas Party every year. We feel it’s our way of giving back to the community. The smiles and “thank-yous” we receive from the kids and families make it such a rewarding experience.

Be a part of something special. If you would like to help support CHOP’s mission in “helping all children experience the gift of childhood,” you can make all donations HERE.

Image of the Week (Gibney-Cinelli Wedding)

You remember those Corona commercials??  Well, that was the inspiration for our image of the week!

Jen and Frank’s beach themed wedding took place in Central New Jersey.  Their ceremony was held at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Manasquan, NJ.  Followed by their reception at the Spring Lake Tennis Club in Spring Lake, NJ.  Their cocktail hour was held pool side, providing their friends and family the perfect opportunity to surprise the happy couple with an aerial banner.

So here’s to Jen and Frank – a Corona Cheers to many more years!!!

John’s Birthday

Over the weekend, we celebrated not only Thanksgiving, but also John’s Birthday.  He’s still lookin’ good at a strikingly handsome 29 years old!  Don’t you agree?!  🙂

We wanted to share some images from his birthday party.  We were graced with the presence of friends and family, and we’re so appreciative of that!  Thanks for all of the birthday wishes…you are all so great.  Let’s wish John many more years!! 

"...Happy Birthday to You."

Kennedy Wedding – The Merion, Cinnaminson, NJ

Alright Cat — THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!!

(But feel free to keep asking Eric to check out our blog every now and then.)   🙂

Surrounded by a wonderful group of friends and family, Cat and Eric’s wedding was a great time for everyone.  We’ve been very fortunate to have a long lasting friendship with this gang, and we can’t wait to continue our relationships with everyone!

Their ceremony was held at the beautiful (and very well lit) Saint Vincent Pallotti church, in Haddon Township, NJ.  Cat and Eric’s reception was held in the beautiful Palazzo Room at the Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ.  Their attention to detail really made this Fall wedding come together.   Plus, working along side of the very talented Glen Elliott and crew from GM Elliott Videography is always a blast!

Check out some of the images we were able to create from their day.  It’s like reliving the moments all over again.  We can’t thank them enough for allowing us to be a part of their very special event.  Cat and Eric – ENJOY!

Image of the Week (Futty Pregnancy)

“My precious little baby,
I have loved you from the start.
You are a tiny miracle,
Laying closely to my heart.

Each day I feel your presence.
Each day your heart beats softly,
As only I could know.

So I’ll keep this in a special place,
And remember each year through,
Of this very special time in my life.
The moment I carried you.”

We’ve known Sabrina and Robert for some time now – from their Pre-wedding portraits, to their wedding, and NOW their “soon-to-be” family. It’s such an honor sharing in our client’s special moments…and this is truly one of them!

This week, we wanted to highlight our Pregnancy portraiture. These sessions are always so much fun, not only for us, but for our clients, who can look back at such a momentous occasion. Sabrina and Robert are taking part in our “Baby’s Life” Collection, and who could blame them?!

Sabrina and Robert don’t know if it’s a boy or girl yet. They’re following through with being surprised. Can you guess what it will be?! Take a look at our Image of the Week, and start placing your bets.  Team Capone certainly has their guess!!   🙂

Congratulations to Sabrina, Robert, and their families.

Image of the Week (Watkins-Pontano Wedding)

We know we’re doing this a few days early, but since our weekend is so jam crammed with weddings and Get to Know You Sessions – we thought it best to post NOW!

We photographed Mary and Tom’s Wedding down at beautiful Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ.  The weather was nothing but spectacular…and what more can you ask for when photographing a beach wedding?!  We were able to capture some images in and around Congress Hall, as well as out on the beach.  Mary and Tom were more than willing to take on the sand, ocean, and even wind!  For that – we thank them both, and are pleased to post this awesome image from their special day.  If only Junior could have made it down!   🙂      (FYI – Junior is their dog)

Happy Friday everyone.  And be sure to do the “no rain dance” for us, for the weekend ahead!

Showin' love on the beaches of Cape May.

Kellie and Mark’s Wedding Highlights

So, here it is!!  Our something new AND special. 

Kellie and Mark’s wedding was spectacular.  We started the day with Kellie (who is nothing short of photogenic!) in West Deptford.  We then worked with Mark (who also charms the camera) at Saint Matthew’s Church, in National Park.  Mark’s brother (and sister-in-law) are  former clients of ours, so it’s always nice to work with familiar faces!  The wedding party was such a great group – and we hope they had as much fun as we did at the park.  Their reception was held in the beautiful Skylight Ballroom at The Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ.  A special thanks to everyone at The Merion, for another fantastic job.

The party was rockin’ all night with none other than Don’t Call Me Francis.  When you watch the video, you’ll notice that Mark’s grandparent’s will agree with us about the band!  His grandparents really had some great moves.  🙂

Enjoy everyone.  And thanks again, Kellie and Mark, for such a wonderful day!    

(P.S. – We figured this song would fit perfectly!!) 

YAY! We’re up and running again!!

Greetings to all!

Thanks (yet again) to the oh-so-talented Mark, Capone Photography’s blog is back to normal.  WHEW!  We’ve definitely been jonesing to post some stuff.  We certainly have a lot of catching up to do.  We’re really looking forward to posting images from a lot of the things we’ve been doing over the past month.  It’s been a busy one, that’s for sure!

We won’t post the “Image of the Week” until next week.  This way, it gives our couple a fair opportunity for a WHOLE week.  🙂  However, be sure to stay tuned for something a little special this week.  We’re going to try something new, and can’t wait to test it out.  WooHoo!! 

Don’t worry, we’ve got PLENTY of images to post as the week goes on.  We’ve been super busy with Photo Expos, engagement sessions, family portraits, Lindsey’s vacation, and many…MANY weddings. 

So how ’bout them Phillies, huh?!  Such a wonderful accomplishment for the team, as well as the city of Philadelphia.  It’s been a long time coming, but it finally happened.  We’re sure that most of you went to the parade, considering there were just over 2 million people there!  It was definitely an experience, so for those of you that missed it – we wanted to post a couple images for you. 

GO PHILS!!

Technical Difficulties

Hey everyone. We are having some (hopefully) temporary technical difficulties posting images to the blog. It’s a wee bit frustrating, since we are at the mercy of our provider. They claim to be working on the fix.

How’s this weather for you? Cold enough?!?

Unfortunately, because of the intense rain, we had to cancel several shoots down the shore on Saturday. Thanks to everyone for rescheduling.

Go Phillies!!!!
