Erin & Brian’s Wedding

After photographing weddings for over eight years, what do you say about a wedding? This was actually pretty easy for a change! Erin and Brian’s wedding was the perfect way to end my 2012 wedding season. Great couple, awesome bridal party, great venue, and (love) true love. I felt honored to be a part of their day and it was fun and emotional all at the same time. For me, the best part was Brian and his Mom dancing to You Are My Sunshine. I think I have discovered the song that my wife should dance with me boys. When they were both babies she (and I) sang that to them to help them fall asleep and even today my youngest asks for “special songs” at bedtime even though he is 7 1/2, and when my wife sings it, he sings along.

So, not only was Erin and Brian’s wedding special for them, it touched my heart and brought a tear to my eye. Enjoy a snapshot of their amazing day and see you all in 2013!

And here are my favorites from the day…

First is the fun hallway on the way to the bathrooms at DuPont…when Erin and Brian had a photo “near the stairs” on their list, I thought they meant the normal grand stairway…NOT…this spot is far better!

This next shot is one of my favorite moments of an entire day…the time that Dad sees his daughter in her dress for the first time

I call this image Job Security…in other words the involvement of flower girls and ring bearers in weddings ensures that some little girl is in a wedding and dreams of being a bride her whole life!

While the obligatory image of the groomsmen is necessary for Mom and Dad, this is far more fun!

Every bride touches the groom a different way at the reveal shot…I loved how Erin did wrapping her arms around Brian.

This is why you never take your eyes off the ceremony. Erin and Brian just leaned in during one of the prayers, it was sweet.

Bubbles!

Bow chica wow wow…

Erin’s dress was one of the most perfect dresses I’ve ever seen for spinning and how it just twirled perfectly…this is a second after Brian spun her and you can still see her dress twisting, super fun.

No words needed here…Father and Daughter

beautiful picture of a beautiful couple!! what a fun wedding it was!!

Jackie & Mike’s Wedding

Jackie and Mike may have been the most laid back, go with the flow, couples I’ve ever worked with! The weather was perfect and I was amazed at all the little details that they planned for the day. I had never been to their wedding reception venue, Nostalgia in Chalfont, and it didn’t disappoint. It was a great venue and fit Jackie and Mike’s personality perfectly. Enjoy a snapshot of their day.

And here are the favorite moments from the day…and it was tough to pick only a few, there were so many fun moments.

I don’t often feature a ring, but when I put her ring in the flower of her bouquet I was astonished how the sun cast the rainbows even on a dark flower

Precious moment…

A perfect place for dresses…good thing I carry a lot of lenses to get this shot I was only a couple feet away

Remembering to turn around every once in a while is helpful to get some fun shots

Brides that like to have fun are…fun

What is this Greece? At least they had on other clothes…

Jackie and Mike’s intros were one of the best I’ve ever had…we now know who won (you can’t see Obama on the other groomsman)

Always talk to DJs about what they like to do as a surprise…this one launched confetti and streamers across the dance floor…cool until it was caught in a $17,000 chandelier and nearly got me killed by the venue owner when he thought I coordinated it!

One of the most fun Father and Daughter dances EVER!

Family Portraits

I had the pleasure to work with a couple families over the past few months to capture growing families. It’s one of the fun parts of shooting weddings is watching their families and in some cases families of their siblings grow. Being a Dad has taught me how to get the most out of every family portrait session. Enjoy a few from the past few months!

Slides are fun! I always ask parents to let me have some fun with kids before getting into the posed shots…it almost always works.

Sometimes there are just too many distractions to keep everyone focused…so you just have to roll with it!

And sometimes a great picture doesn’t need everyone looking at the exact same spot!

Flying!

I’m gonna eat your camera!

Sometimes legs aren’t ready for standing, but this works!

Sarah & Jordan’s Wedding

Well, I think Sarah was about the age of my son when I first knew her and the Atchinson family. Now she and Jordan are husband and wife…wow time flies. I was so honored that they trusted me with their wedding day and prayers for good weather were answered. Enjoy a snapshot of their amazing day!
