I’m going to be honest with this one, I wasn’t sure what to expect! Kellie and Amadou were a little light on details when we were planning their wedding photography and for good reason – they were both graduating Med School two days before. I quickly realized that they were both laid back and were up for whatever I asked of them. We were able to make a few quick photos on Broad St then made a quick run up to Hahnemann Hospital for a few photos between rain showers.
The ceremony was held at the Hyatt Bellevue, and they were surrounded with close family and friends. Amadou’s family is originally from South Africa, so they were able to do a joint ceremony to honor both both African and traditional customs.
Kristie and Kieran may have been the most relaxed easy going bride and groom this year. I guess a living in California making your own brand of wine helps that! (I don’t drink on the job, but I had to have a taste and it was delicious). They were my kind of bride and groom. Beach wedding – check. Relaxed, fun, casual and emotional wedding ceremony – check. Tastykakes, Yuengling and a roast pig at the reception – check. Surrounded by lots of family and friends that were there to see them finally get married and celebrate with them – check.
Special thanks to my second shooter Karin Belgrave!
Kim and Greg had a great University of Delaware themed wedding. They met there their freshman year, and yada, yada, yada, nine years later they got married. We had a chance to meet them at The Mendenhall Inn, then went to the University to take photos of the bride, groom and wedding party. Nothing makes you feel like you’re ten years removed from college then going to visit a college. Thanks Kim and Greg for such a great time and best of luck!
Oh how time flies! Kaitlyn is my about-ready-to-graduate-high-school sister. She’s heading off to college at Eastern Carolina University next year, so this was a nice Mother’s Day present for our mom. We went to my favorite farm (and bakery) Russo’s in downtown Tabernacle to shoot some photos in the greenhouses.
I had such a great time while shooting Heather and Mike’s engagement session last Saturday. We met at Ridley Creek State Park and walked around near the creek and hiking paths to start off. They didn’t set their expectations as models very high, mostly because they would be laughing and goofing off most of the time. While that was true, we did make a lot of great photos. It was great being outside on a nice day with a couple who was willing to go crawling across logs, stand in freezing cold streams, and lay in the tall grass. I can’t wait for their wedding in July!
When they saw this log, they wanted to recreate the famous scene from “Dirty Dancing”, which then turned into the “Karate Kid”.
They kept me on my toes by doing things like this without telling me what they were doing. It’s a good thing I was paying attention while they were walking ahead of me.
