This post is a throw back to Bo & Matt's amazing Crane Arts wedding in October 2013. I've had these images buried in my drafts for almost a year now, just waiting for the opportunity to write epic commentary about a couple that really inspired me. However, Bo & Matt celebrated their 2 year anniversary yesterday and it's way past time that I share this story! Enjoy!
From the moment that Katlin contacted me I knew that she was planning a beautiful wedding at the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove in Audubon, PA. I noticed several things about Katlin & Kevin early on. First, they are best friends and complete one another. I love the way that I caught them looking at each other. Every glance held humor, respect and love. "He is the other piece to my puzzle." Second, Katlin's laugh is infectious. She is constantly smiling and laughing and you can literally watch the people around her catch that feeling.
Kelly and Charles were married on a beautifully sunny summer afternoon at the People's Light Theater in Malvern, PA. Kelly got ready at Salon Fiber, the salon where she works in downtown Phoenixville; I loved this nod to her chosen profession and was obsessed with the vintage hair dryer in the front of the shop!
Maggie and Matt's story began at Susquehanna University where they became instant friends over shared interests in sports; in fact, they met during pre-season while Matt played soccer and Maggie played field hockey. It wasn't until reconnecting several years after college that they began dating and have been inseparable ever since.
In addition to the rare opportunity to photograph on the church property, I was also excited to document Mandy's unique gown. Mandy graduated from Philadelphia University with a degree in Textile Engineering. It was only natural for her to make her own wedding gown! The elegant simplicity of the gown fit the venue perfectly. I loved the silk fabric and belted detail that Mandy literally sewed on after stepping into her creation. In fact, some of my favorite moments of the day were documenting Mandy, her mother and mother-in-law putting together the finishing touches.
Emily and David contacted me to photograph their Philadelphia engagement session early last winter. They were hoping to schedule their session over the Christmas holiday since they would be in the area visiting David's family. Currently, the couple lives in Wisconsin and that is where they will be getting married later this year.
I've known Kevin for over a decade and although our paths have taken us different directions since our late 20's, we catch up from time to time and I've been so happy for him that he found such an awesome partner in Jackie. After almost having the opportunity to photograph the engagement (plans changed), I was thrilled when Jackie & Kevin contacted me to document their wedding day.
