Philadelphia Phillies – World Champions

On our way to a photo shoot yesterday, we passed this amazing (that’s right…AMAZING) billboard.  We figured that many of you would appreciate it, and chuckle, just as much as we did.  We may have lost Game 2 of the series last night, but we’re still not down and out.  We wanted to spread a little Philadelphia Phillies spirit to get everyone ready for tomorrow’s game.  They are the “PHIGHTIN’ PHILS,” reigning World Champions.  Let’s bring it on home to Philadelphia boys, and clinch the title once again.

GO PHILS!  (and have a Happy Halloween everyone)

Dear World Champions

Melissa and Adam’s Engagement Session

We love photographing engagement sessions.  It’s such a fun time when we get to know our couples!

We photographed Melissa and Adam at the Azalea Gardens and Water Works in Philadelphia, where we were able to capture some wonderful images.  The sunset over Boat House Row was a beautiful finale for this great couple.  The countdown to their wedding has begun and we’re looking forward to working with Melissa and Adam, as well as their families and friends.

Katie and Alex’s Wedding – Hyatt Penns Landing, Philadelphia, PA

It’s great when we pull up to the home at the same time the bride and her maids are returning from the salon.  All you have to do is look at the bride’s face as she gets out of the car, to know that she has never felt like this before and never will again.  Katie is the perfect example of this.  She is such a beautiful bride, and so ready to get married.  Just looking at her, you can tell that she can’t wait for Alex to see her.

The limo pulls up to the church.  Alex and his groomsmen get out and make their way up the steps and inside.  Alex looks great, a little nervous, but very ready to marry Katie.  Just looking at him, you can tell that he can’t wait to see her.

Finally, Katie’s father walks her down the aisle and gives her away to Alex.  Just looking at them, you can tell that Katie and Alex are so happy to finally see each other.

Katie and Alex are a fun couple who love to laugh and have a good time. Their wedding day had the same vibe. They just kicked back and took in every moment.  They enjoyed the evening celebrating with their family, friends, and adorable nieces and nephews at the Hyatt at Penns Landing.  A fitting end to a long anticipated day.

Katie and Alex, on your wedding day you paused for a minute to dance during your photo session.  Just looking at the two of you, one could tell that it was a moment in time that meant so much.  You were in a place where only you two will ever know.  May your future together bring you many, many more of those same moments…enjoy!  And please be sure to take a look at some more images on our Facebook page by clicking HERE.


Amie and Mike’s Engagement Session


We met up with Amie and Mike at the Art Museum in Philadelphia.  It was a time for us to get to know them both…and we must say, they rocked!  The two of them were totally up for anything when it came to taking pictures!  What more could we ask for? 

What started off as a rainy afternoon, turned out to be such a beautiful evening in the city.  We had such a great time with our couple and we’re really looking forward to their wedding.  Here is a sneak peak at some of the images we created for Amie and Mike.  Be sure to go to our Facebook page to see a few more.  Just CLICK HERE.



Lauren, James, and the RAIN

We think it’s safe to say that the majority of this month has been full of nothing but rain!  It just so happened that during Lauren and James’ Engagement Session…it did just that.  “Bummer” some of you may say, but it actually turned out to be a great time!  We waited it out for a bit until the rain subsided.  The rain continued off and on throughout their session, but it certainly didn’t stop our brave couple.  The good part to all of this, was that everyone who was visiting the Art Museum that day left due to the inclement weather.  We had the whole place to ourselves.  🙂

This was what it looked like just as we were about to start with Lauren and James – – can you say, small flood?!


Here are some teasers from their session.  Some killer ones at that!  And please don’t forget to go to our Facebook page to see a few more images.  Just click HERE.

Amy and Sergio’s Wedding – The Merion, Cinnaminson, NJ

We’ve been looking forward to photographing Amy and Sergio’s Wedding for quite some time!

Family and friends gathered at Our Lady of Grace Church, in Somerdale, New Jersey, to celebrate the union of this great looking couple and their families.  Amy and Sergio are fond of the city, so even though both the ceremony and reception were in New Jersey, they were excited to venture over to Philadelphia to take pictures after the ceremony.

Their reception was held in the Skylight Ballroom at the Merion in Cinnaminson, New Jersey.  An authentic Mariachi Band played for everyone during cocktail hour, followed by the unbelievable sounds of Big Ric in Vegas from EBE Entertainment.  Amy and Sergio had top notch wedding vendors working for them that day.  We were honored to be a part of their fantastic event!

We’ve enjoyed getting to know the two of them, along with family and friends, over the past year. Here are some memorable images from their special day.  To see a few more teasers, be sure to check out our Facebook page by clicking HERE.

Kamola and Temurbek’s Wedding



We honestly can’t say enough kind words about this couple!   

Kamola and Temurbek are both from Uzbekistan, and they decided to have both American and Uzbek Wedding traditions during their big day.  Held in Cinnaminson, NJ at the Merion’s Palace Ballroom, many friends and family traveled far (and by far we mean, half way around the world!) to take part in their joyous occasion.  Their Uzbek Band got the party going by playing authentic music, and guests filled the floor with traditional dancing.  We had a blast, so we can only imagine that everyone else did too.  🙂

Thank you, thank you, thank you…Kamola, Temurbek, and everyone else who attended, for making US  feel like a part of YOUR  family!!  Enjoy the teasers here on our blog, and for a sneak peak at a few more make sure you visit our Facebook page by clicking HERE.  Enjoy and Happy Friday everyone!

25 Years of Motivation came to Philadelphia

The Get Motivated! Seminar was held yesterday at Philadelphia’s Wachovia Center.  We arrived at 7 A.M. (what we THOUGHT was early) and it was already packed! 

The purpose of the seminar was to motivate individuals to achieve greater success in their business as well as every day life.  This star-studded event was jam packed with wonderful knowledge, excitement, and positivity.  From well known celebrities such as Charlie Manuel (coach of the Philadelphia Phillies), Donovan McNabb (Eagles Quarterback), Steve Forbes (founder of Forbes Magazine), Cole Hamels (Philadelphia Phillies pitcher), Rudy Giuliani (former Mayor of New York City), and even General Colin Powell (former Secretary of State) all gave a little insight into their success.  It was quite inspirational.  There was even a raffle for a 47” Insignia LCD, a dance contest for a trip to Disney World, and even a drawing for $10,000!   Unfortunately, we didn’t win.  Better luck next year.  🙂

If any of you were unable to attend this years event, here are images that we captured…only a few rows away from center stage.

Shari and Gordon’s Wedding – Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, PA

We started the day in South Jersey, where our beautiful bride stepped into her Eve of Milady gown.  We continued the rest of our day in Philadelphia, where we met Gordon, his groomsmen, and the families at the Art Museum.  Shari and Gordon decided to meet each other and take pictures before the ceremony.  So when the two of them saw each other for the first time, the emotion was quite powerful.  Tears from our Bride and Groom as well as loving cheers from their friends and family, definitely provided us with some great photojournalistic images!

Their ceremony and reception were both held at the Downtown Marriott in Philadelphia.  We had the pleasure of working with Iovino Video Productions and rocking out to the awesome sounds of Shari and Gordon’s entertainment, Band of Gold.  Shari even had a little surprise for Gordon, when she had a bagpipe player make an appearance.

Shari and Gordon – we appreciate the opportunity to work with you, your friends, and families.  We had such a great time with all of you and can’t wait to work with you again!
