Philadelphia Wedding and Event Photographer • Unveiled-Ultimate Wedding Planning. Event

Chestnut Hill Business District invited brides-to-be to the ultimate wedding planning event. Brides were treated to a full day of bridal style, tips and treats from participating businesses along Germantown Ave.

Despite the rain, the event kicked off at The Chateau at Sugarloaf and the brides received a complimentary gift bag that included a mini veil and commemorative champagne flute. Lunch, hair and make-up sessions, cake tastings, and gifts were all available to the bride throughout the day at participating businesses. Brides and their entourages were able to take advantage of a free trolley service that will be traveling to each event location.

I had so much fun with all of the Brides to be and their “I do Crews.”  Please take a look at some of the fun moments we captured.

Philadelphia Portrait and Event Photographer • Nest Chestnut Hill •Thanks for the memories!

In September of 2015, I was reading the Chestnut Hill Local and saw a new place space was opening in the neighborhood. I grabbed a few business cards and postcards and headed over.

I soon met the owner, Kara Hertzog at Nest, a play space that offers a variety of classes for children six weeks old to six years old. We became fast friends and a natural fit for my photography business.  I have had the pleasure of working with Kara and her team for the past few years.  It was an honor to be a part of the Nest team and so many families events at Nest. 

We will miss you and thanks for the opportunities and memories!

As a parting gift please visit the gallery and download or order your pics!

Sweet! Philadelphia Wedding and Event Photography

Woodmere Cake Show- Sweet Inspiration

Woodmere Art Museum hosted local cake artists Sweet Inspiration, in their beautiful museum.

This year’s theme was based on the stunning children’s book illustrations by Philadelphia artist, Charles Santore, for books such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Wizard of Oz, Snow White and more. Ten of the Philadelphia area’s top cake artists created whimsical cakes inspired by one of the illustrations of their choice, and the results were spectacular cakes highlighting the artistry of cake decorating.

There was a fun and fabulous opening reception, where each cake artist had a chance to describe their cake and some of the advanced cake decorating techniques they used, as well as what inspired them about the illustration they used as the basis for their cakes.

Satin Ice, which is made in the USA and exported to over 65 distributors worldwide, Satin Ice has a long running history of being the professional’s choice for premium quality fondant and gum paste. Check out the Satin Ice’s blog post about the event:
