Congratulations to Lauren and Kevin- Seaview Resort & Spa Wedding

Rain or shine, Lauren and Kevin’s wedding on Saturday will be an amazing one. The wedding will be held at the Seaview Resort in Galloway, New Jersey near Atlantic City. This couple has full of energy, and full of love to each other and their cute baby Husky. Check out these photos from their engagement session around the Italian Market district in Philadelphia, where Lauren and Kevin reside.

Shot this picture with direct sunlight during the golden hour. Love the colors!

As you look at this image below, please read this Irish Wedding Blessing I want to offer to Lauren and Kevin:

“May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon the fields. May the light of friendship guide your paths together. May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home. May the joy of living for one another trip a smile from your lips, A twinkle from your eye. And when eternity beckons, at the end of a life heaped high with love, May the good Lord embrace you with the arms that have nurtured you the whole length of your joy-filled days. May the gracious God hold you both in the palm of His hands. And, today, may the Spirit of Love find a dwelling place in your hearts. Amen.”

Love those piercing eyes of their Husky…

AWARD WINNING PICTURE – WPJA 2011 Q2 Contest

The results are out and Yay!…..one of my images placed in the top 3 in the Reception category in the The Wedding Photojournalist Association Second Quarter Photography Competition.

This is a big deal for me since this is an international competition among the best of the best in wedding photojournalism. Thanks to Shannon and Rohan for letting me document their special day! The image was captured during Shannon’s mother and daughter dance at her wedding. It was an emotional moment for both the bride and her mother, most especially because she lost her father few years ago and was not able to witness his beautiful daughter on her wedding day. 

Here’s something about the contest from the WPJA website -

The 2011 Q2 Contest showcases the wedding photojournalism of WPJA members from the second quarter of the 2011 year in 8 categories.

Every year WPJA hosts the largest wedding photography competitions in the world judged by panels of award-winning photojournalists and designers.

Membership in WPJA requires rigorous standards in technical skill, aesthetics and best business practices.

Congratulations to Corinne and William – Greek Wedding at The Ballroom at the Ben, Philadelphia

Trying to catch up with my blogging here. Sorry If I was not able to blog for my recent newly weds, it has been a busy couple of weeks. I will post those later this week. But here’s one for the wedding today. A wedding at the St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church in Cherry Hill, New Jersey followed by a reception at The Ballroom at the Ben in Philadelphia. It’s going to be a fun wedding to this fun couple. Check out their engagement images we shot in Philly-

I miss skateboarders at Love Park! I think they were kicked out by the Philadelphia police. Sometimes they can be annoying during a photo session, but if you put them to use…they can make great action shots.

Love the doors at the Basilica of St. Peter and Paul in Philadelphia…

This is the first time this couple are photographed professionally, and they looked like models. My wow shot…
