When I met up with Pat and Ed at the Philadelphia Art Museum, I could only think one thing, this is what true love looks like. They were playful, fun and in love. Their infectious laughter had me cracking up behind the camera. Couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple.
Our photo session was timed perfectly, if I do say so myself, with an incredible sunset in the background and an awesome couple in the foreground, what could make a photographer happier!?
Photographing Pat and Ed at the Philadelphia Art Museum was the perfect way to showcase their love. They are a strong, beautiful and confident couple and the Art Museum is nearly as strong and beautiful as they are. The intricate architecture of the Philadelphia Art Museum has always stood out to me, and now whenever I am in Philadelphia and see the Art Museum, I will think of Pat and Ed, the love they share and the fun we had.
Once the session was over, I went back to the Photo Loft and put together a collection of photographs for the amazing couple. They loved everything almost as much as I did! I had the honor of helping Pat and Ed put together a wall collection. Four of the beautiful photographs we created during their session are hanging in their house for everyone one to see, and I have to admit, it looks pretty cool!
To a hundred more years together, Pat and Ed!
We’d love to hear from you! Give me a call or shoot me an email if you want to set up your own forever session with your SO 🙂
There are some couples you meet that completely balance each other out. One of them, Dakota and Mike, were married at The Heritage Trust in New York’s Mt. Sinai. Their ceremony didn’t last more than 10 minutes, and then they were ready to party. We brought the photo booth all the way up to Long Island for some silliness! We stuffed our faces with all vegan indian food. Afterwords we headed to Dave and Buster’s to get the wedding jitters out and to burn off that energy from the pent butter jelly cookies!

So I photographed my brother’s wedding at the beautiful Ironstone Ranch in Elizabethtown, Pa! It’s rustic, there’s room to run, and the wedding party was drawn by a horse and carriage! Venue details at bottom of post.

As everyone gears up for the holidays, we take time to remember those we love. Mike was honored to be this year’s photographer of 12 beautiful women for Bonedaddys Tattoo’s “Calendar for a Cure”. All proceeds go to the Brave Eli Foundation (www.braveeli.com) which donates directly to finding a cure for childhood cancer.
Lovebirds. One in a beautiful Philadelphian Bhldn dress, and one with a belt buckle that says “Cocky”. They’re gigglers. Which makes them a perfect couple for the upscale but modern Front & Palmer wedding venue in Philadelphia. We stopped at the 2nd National Bank on the way for some unforgettable pictures.

Lady was our first baby. Of course she was the kind with fur. Part pit bull and the other part people would remark “that Target dog” or “Spuds MacKenzie”
She loved being wound up and going into the crazy run. You know, that side ways run dogs do. If you’ve seen it, you’ve wondered how her paws stayed attached. Every year she did that less and less and as our family grew she put up with child belly dog flops and tail grabbing.
On June 6 of this year we brought her into the studio with the family. It was a special photo session. A few weeks prior she was diagnosed with cancer that had progressed too far. Nothing could be done to treat the cancer.
So we photographed – a few more moments with Lady.
And on Father’s day, 9 days after this memorial photo session we said goodbye to Lady.
So much cute, so little time! We made the most of a beautiful night for a party right in Philadelphia, starting with portraits fit for royalty at a hotel, a cut through 30th Street Station, and then on to Distrito, a mexican restaurant that packs a lot of punch, for the wedding.
