Steph and Luke are my lovely, cool, wonderful, dear friends, so you can blame me for being a little bias when I say that their wedding was one of the nicest weddings I have ever documented/ seen! Aside from how gorgeous and perfect together they are, the location was to die for! Rustic barn (somewhere in Ohio :) with a menagerie of animals ( 14 horses, cows, pigs, goats, chicks and a huge Grand Pyrenees- we did lots of petting : ) was stunningly decorated by Penny and Nina of Save the day Events. Andrew Tanner, our yoga friend, officiated their lovely, touching ceremony.
Music during the ceremony was played by a mutual friend, uber -talented Monica Ott.
Reception music by Woody Pines, straight from Nashville. 
Mind blowing florals and some decor by the amazing La Botique Nostalgie from Toledo.
Please, enjoy the images as much as I did capturing them!
Steph & Luke, I wish you love always, and I am so grateful to have been there!

Personality and looks, two ingredients for a successful wedding shoot were so plentiful on that sunny midsummer day! Marta and Josidalgo, a stunning, interesting and fun couple held their wedding reception at one of my top favorite venues- MyMoon in Brooklyn. That converted factory/ warehouse space, with lots of exposed brick, raw metals, gorgeous custom made furnishings, complete with the most romantic outdoor space was enjoyed by all. Little Manolo, Marta and Josidalgo toddler son was a belle of the ball!

Lauren and Tyler, who met and connected over a shared love of golf, got married on the lush lawn of Castle Hotel in Tarrytown, NY. I found them both to be so endearing in their love bond, and so fun to capture! The party was held in the medieval/ hunting style ballroom complete with high and intricately painted vaulted ceilings, and stained glass windows, that provided such a dramatic and original backdrop for the festivities.
My fabulous second shooter Geri and I loved every minute of capturing Lauren & Tyler's wedding!

I adore my couples' pups, and it's always so much fun to have them be a part of engagement session shoot. Maddie, Lee and their handsome boy Hudson (photographed in Hoboken by the Hudson River) were simply the best!

June was a month of the best-est weddings, and Kristin and Kevin's was a cherry on the cake. Amazing, stunning couple, most perfect light, fantastic vibe all through the day! 
I was happy to return to Philly's finest, the Loews hotel for K and K's reception.
Special thanks to my awesome second shooter, and a good friend Nadine Rovner.

Monika, I am so happy both of my daughters chose you as the Photographer for their Weddings. You are an extremely talented, hard working perfectionist. I don't know anything about Photography, just what Tracy taught me (which she learned from you). I do know one thing, you are a Genius!!
