The Merion Wedding of Julie + Joseph – 05.18.13

I always feel like I’m running in place this time of year. Shooting and processing all my beautiful weddings, I find it hard to keep up with my blogging. Happy to find the time to share Julie and Josephs beautiful wedding at The Merion. Though they had a few rain dope fall on their day, they certainly had picture perfect “soft-box” light for their portraits. Loved her sweet Monique Lhuillier gown. Congrats you two!

Love + Art – My Passion for Fashion Editorial

Yes, I do adore photographing weddings, but sometimes as an artist I love the control that only an editorial shoot can give me. My last editorial from the fall is going to grace the covers of 2 magazines this summer and I am hoping for the same for this gorgeous shoot. The problem is the models and talent were so amazing I just cannot narrow down what to submit. Not a bad problem to have! I just wanted to thank everyone involved for making this one of my all time favorite editorials! Want to help me pick?

Oheka Castle Wedding of Ruth + Matthew – 04.28.13

I was so excited to be photographing another wedding at Oheka Castle. It’s like traveling to a destination wedding in Europe without the flight!

Ruth and Matthew planned just a picture perfect day right down to some amazing lighting in the ballroom!

Grounds for Sculpture Engagement Portraits of Ashley + James

It was a picture perfect Spring evening at the Grounds for Sculpture for Ashley and James engagement session. I’ve know Ashley since she was a teenage aspiring model. Watching her successful international modeling career grow has been so exciting, but best of all has been the love that she has found in James. This past year has not been the best for Ashley. Last fall she was diagnosed with cancer for a second time. Her positivity, faith and hope have been an inspiration to all of us who know her. Ashley and James are planning a most charming Southern wedding next April in her home town in North Carolina. I can’t wait to photograph it!

    

Tammy - Wow Marie… these photos are BEYOND spectacular! What a beautiful couple! They are just magical…the lighting is perfect. I’m amazed!!!!
