Earlier this summer I photographed Nina and Roy’s perfect outdoor wedding at The Merion in New Jersey. The venue has a classical European to contemporary design with an elegant chandelier hung from the center of a grand ballroom.

Nina’s gorgeous A-line gown with a sheer beaded bodice was simply perfection and one of the most angelic gowns I have ever seen. She found wedding inspiration from a soft color palette which made for the perfect summer floral arrangements filled with blush pink, peach, and yellow flowers and tiny little daisies.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Bakeoven!!

Per tradition, Nina’s dad prepared a small bag full of white confetti, representing the wedding day, small coins representing wealth, rice to represent health, and sugar coated almonds thrown at her while leaving their home for the ceremony.

One of my favorite moments to capture on a couples’ wedding day is their “First Look”. A “First Look” is what I consider one of the most intimate, cherished moments shared with only you and your fiancé the last few minutes before you say, “I Do”. In that moment, I am given only a few seconds to capture a picture worth a thousands words. Drumroll Please!!

Earlier in the summer, I spent a beautiful summer day walking around Peace Valley Park in Doylestown with Shea + Paul for their engagement session. Peace Valley Park is the perfect place to have a very peaceful, whimsical feel filled with a ton of trails leading to explore natures beauty deep in the woods.

Shea and Paul are music enthusiasts who live in South Philly. I recently learned a pretty fun fact in that Paul plays the bass in one of Philly’s most talented rock and roll band, Bel Heir. What better place than Philly to bounce around trendy bars to jam out and discover new talent?
