andrea’s bridal shower

I love documenting events like these because it’s a day full of gratitude and it’s so fulfilling to witness.  It’s always incredible when people gather to celebrate someone they love and see that person overwhelmed by it all.

jess’ maternity

Jess and I have been friends for 10yrs, so it was pretty surreal, and quite the honor to photograph her right before she becomes a mama.  We went to the Nomad hotel specifically for this claw foot tub.  It was a grand day with a gold glitter bubble bath and gorgeous flowers from Hawk & Hare.  Every moment was breathtaking.  Thank you, ladies, for one of my favorite sessions to date.

becca & mike

This day was full of exciting surprises, which is beyond perfect for this larger than life couple.  Mike and Becca made some magic happen at the Collingswood Ballroom.  There were a few serenades (Becca and the bridal party sang “god only knows what I’d be without you” to Mike during the ceremony), Dick Valentine of Electric Six did an acoustic set, their friends performed a skit, etc.  The novel theme was a perfect expression as well (Mike had proposed to becca after placing the ring box inside of their favorite book).  These personal touches made for a unique and memorable wedding.

Many thanks to my talented second shooter, Joanna Fisher.

laila & tim

A New Year’s Eve wedding means there’s two reasons to celebrate… and guaranteed fireworks.  We were on the 33rd floor of the Loews Hotel so we also got to watch the sun set with a gorgeous view.  However, one of the best parts of the day was the tea ceremony.  Laila and Tim took the time to honor each family member and it was really beautiful to see.  Also, Laila’s dress choices were killer and she was stunning in every one.

Many thanks to my talented second shooter, Joanna Fisher.  I loved ringing in the new year with you.

 

my ladies

While reflecting on the past year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible adventures I’ve had with my second shooters.  These women possess an immeasurable amount of talent, grace, and courage that they share in abundance.  I am so inspired and blessed by their friendship.  Tifani, Joanna and Judi please know how much I appreciate and cherish the time you’ve spent with me.  Our travels together, documenting these beautiful events, will forever be some of my favorite memories.  I cannot wait to see where this year’s roads will lead us.  I love you.
