I knew I wanted to work with Sara and Doug from the moment I met them at Panera :)  I could tell they were both genuinely happy people.  I could also tell that together, they made each other even happier.  Sara is sweet, beautiful, motivated and has great taste which really shined in all of her wedding details.  Doug was so doting on his bride which was really sweet to witness on their wedding day. I loved the colors they chose and the way the Down Town Club was decorated.  Everything was just flawless.  This wedding was such a pleasure to shoot.  The following are a preview for Sara and Doug as I have only edited my photos and not my associate's photos.  So here is a representation of what I saw that day with more to come in the full gallery, Sara and Doug.  Enjoy!

I caught up with Katie and Ryan again after most recently having photographed their first daughter, Fiona, on her first birthday.  They have added a beautiful new daughter named Adair and become a lovely family of four.  Katie and Ryan reminded me that it's been five years since I photographed their wedding which was amazing and unbelievable to me.  It remains one of my favorite weddings with a few photos that I still try to recreate at other weddings.  Katie and Ryan, you have been such a sweet, generous and kind family and I treasure you as my clients! You also live on the most perfect street with the most perfect light, so that doesn't hurt either :)  I hope you love the photos of your new sweet girl.

I met Cyndi and Ryan on the boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey.  OCNJ is a special place for them because they vacation there each year with Cyndi's family.  It was special for me too as I grew up going there with my family.  I always love going back to the boardwalk and making the usual stops at Shriver's, Manco and Manco's Pizza, Kohr Bros., etc.  I could eat for hours on that boardwalk.  This was actually the first time I had done an engagement shoot on the boardwalk so it was fun to look at things in a new light.  Cyndi and Ryan wanted to start at Wonderland, which I thought was a great idea.  We spent some time walking down the boardwalk and hit the beach for a beautiful sunset.  I was really happy with the color and vibrancy of these photos, I think it really capture the feel of the boardwalk in the summer.  Cyndi and Ryan, I hope you like them too!

My friend and college roommate, Lauren, had a sweet little baby girl last month and I got to photograph her tiny self when she came home from the hospital, and actually, while she was in the hospital too.  As you can see, she has SO much hair and for as many newborns as I've shot, I am always amazed at how tiny a new baby can be.  I loved seeing her and she was so sweet for the entire shoot.  I can't wait to watch her get bigger as the months go by.  Congratulations Pidge and Greg!!

Karen is, in a word, happy.  For as many years as I have known her she has always been a bright light and a warm presence.  I would bet there are zero people who do not like her.  I knew Phil and Karen's wedding would be lovely.  There were many, many months of planning that went into creating this beautiful day, as is the case with most weddings.  But I knew this wedding would just be so special from the moment I heard all of the ideas buzzing from Karen and her creative and multi-talented mother, Becky.  The dress, the flowers, the venue, the ceremony, the fireworks, everything was amazing.  I'll let the photos illustrate how wonderful this wedding was but I want to express my thanks and gratitude for the opportunity to work with both Karen and Phil and to document such a special time for such a sweet couple.  I believe Karen has truly found the yin to her yang in Phil.  Upon meeting him for their engagement session, he was equally as warm and kind as Karen and they both laugh with ease, which should serve them well in marriage.  Karen and Phil, I wish you many years of health, happiness and a beautiful new life together.  Congratulations!!
