Chelsea + Michael’s Wedding – Philadelphia, PA

Starting out at the fabulous and accomodatiing Loews Hotel in Philadelphia for the ‘getting ready’ pictures, and then the reveal, followed by pictures in Old City, and then off to the Ballroom at the Ben for a beautiful candle-lit ceremony followed by a killer reception, everything was planned to a T. Couple that with a really nice Bride & Groom and a bridal party willing to brave the excessive heat outdoors to create some beautiful images, it’s what we might call a “picture perfect” day.

Chelsea and Michael, you were terrific. Thanks for being super clients! We wish you all the best!

Kristina + Chris’ Wedding | Crystal Tea room, Philadelphia

There’s something about a wedding, the day after St. Patrick’s day, that gives off some good vibes.  Perhaps it was the “Luck O’ the Irish”, but we’re going to chalk it up to the fact that Kristina, Chris, their families and friends were nothing short of hospitable!

Memories, whether past or present, played a significant role in all of the wedding details.  Beautiful images of family members adorned Kristina’s bouquet, and her wedding dress hung in between her Christening and Communion dress…

For the first time, Kristina’s dad got to see her as a bride.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the room…

Kristina and Chris’ wedding ceremony took place at the stunning St. Bridget’s Church in Philadelphia.  We then headed over to Center City to create some images…

The wedding reception took place at one of Finley Catering’s venues, the Crystal Tea Room.  With splashes of green, Kristina and Chris wanted to incorporate a little bit of “day after” St. Patty’s theme…

And just like when Kristina’s dad saw her for the first time as a bride, their father-daughter dance left everyone crying tears of joy…

Kristina and Chris – from the bottom of our heart, congratulations!  It was a true privilege to be a part of your wedding day, and we thank you for being such wonderful clients…but more importantly, friends.

Ashley and Chris’ Wedding – Ballroom at the Ben, Philadelphia

One of the greatest places to take wedding images is in Philadelphia.  Whether it’s a park or iconic location, the city has so many great opportunities for creating such memorable images!  Ashley and Chris’ wedding covered all of those bases…and then some.

Their 7-11 wedding started off at the Loew’s Hotel Philadelphia

And what bride isn’t complete without her Monique Lhuillier gown straight from the glamorous racks of  Kleinfeld?

A quick stop to a local convenient store was a MUST for Ashley and Chris’ wedding day.  After all, they did get married on 7-11…

Another wonderful part of Philadelphia happens to be Finley Catering and their beautiful wedding venues throughout the area.  Ashley and Chris decided upon the “European ambiance” of the Ballroom at the Ben

Samar and Salah’s Wedding – Finley Catering | Union Trust, Philadelphia, PA

Samar, Salah, and their families began the day by getting ready at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia, and as the cameras began to flash, it was obvious that everyone was ready to have a fun, relaxed and enjoyable day!  Samar and Salah saw each other for the first time on Broad Street, as some on lookers clapped for joy during the reveal.  And as Samar and Salah took each other’s hand, they walked along the city streets with nothing but smiles from ear to ear.  Today was about each other…it was about family and being surrounded by those that mean the most to this amazing couple.  It’s apparent that Samar and Salah value the bonds they share with people, and as acknowledgement to those that attended their wedding, not only did they gave a heartfelt speech for all to hear, but they also went to each and every table and toasted to the celebrations of the evening.

Samar and Salah – your wedding was truly a joyous occasion and we thank you for inviting us to take part in such a lavish affair at Union Trust.  Congratulations and best wishes from now until forever!



Cheri and Brad’s Wedding – The Crystal Tea Room, Philadelphia, PA

Cheri and Brad’s wedding has been a very detailed and organized event from the start.  “Welcome to Philadelphia” gift bags, matching black bridal tank tops, and a very elegant color palette of cream, ivory and pink – Cheri and Brad (with the help of their amazing parents) most certainly crossed every “t” and dotted every single “I”.  And let’s not forget about the top notch crew of vendors they had along the way!  Delicious cuisine provided by Finley Catering, creative designs by Barb DiStefano, video documentary by Mondo Video Productions, exquisite floral arrangements by Carl Alan Floral Designs, non-stop party music provided by DJ Mike Scott of DiNardo Brothers Entertainment, and one-of-a-kind imagery photographed by yours truly!  😉

Cheri and Brad – we’d like to thank you for allowing us to photograph your wedding day.  It was an honor…and a privilege…and we had fun every step of the way.  Congratulations!



Nicole and Rich’s Wedding – The Crystal Tea Room, Philadelphia, PA

Exquisite floral designs by Carl Alan, a matching set of Jimmy Choo accessories, party band entertainment by Jellyroll, live event painting by Joan Zylkin, silver rosary direct from the Vatican in Rome, and a super impressive ice sculpture of the Philadelphia skyline created by Finley Catering.  Let’s just say that Nicole and Rich’s wedding was ALL about the details!  We had the honor of photographing Nicole’s sister’s wedding a couple of years ago, so when we received a phone call about Nicole and Rich’s engagement, it was no surprise that another spectacular event would take place in Philadelphia.  It was a day of love, an evening of fun, and through it all –  we got to experience it with a great group of people we can honestly call our friends!

Nicole and Rich – You traveled the streets of Philly with nothing but smiles from ear to ear the whole way through.  You made it fun, and for that, we can’t thank you enough for an awesome day.  Congratulations!



Stephanie and Eric’s Wedding – The Ballroom at the Ben, Philadelphia, PA

Perhaps you remember the tale of Stephanie and Eric.  A story that dates back to when they were kids, and how their summer vacations turned out to be so much more.  These childhood sweethearts blossomed into a perfect pair, full of love and happiness.  It was no surprise to anyone that they would marry and live happily ever after.  Well, that happily ever after has officially begun.  Stephanie and Eric’s wedding was top notch.  Stephanie wore an exquisite Lazaro gown and matching lace Jimmy Choo heels, all floral arrangements were created by Carl Alan Floral Designs, while Jellyroll performed at Stephanie and Eric’s reception in the elegant Ballroom at the Ben, with cuisine by Finley Catering.  And, of course, rounding out the “A-List” for this magnificently beautiful winter wedding, Capone Photography was there to capture it all…



Stephanie and Eric – may you remember all of the moments, details and love that made up your wedding day.  May they always bring a smile to your face!  Congratulations.  For more images from their wedding, check out their personal Facebook album by clicking HERE.
