PHILADELPHIA BALLROOM: NATALIE & DEMETRIUS

2015 has been a good year for us and it couldn’t have ended better than the wedding of this fun couple Natalie & Demetrius.  We met up with these two in July for their engagement session at Arcadia College (click here to view) and we loved how in love they were and excited to become husband and wife.  That feeling was multiplied this November for their big day and was filled with laughs and smiles and lots of friends and family.  Enjoy some of our favorites from the day they said “I Do”.

Such a sweet moment…She was proud to toast her “champagne” water.

We think Demetrius thoroughly loved his watch from his bride to be…Nice job Natalie!

Beautiful…..

We think each like what they see!

Its Official!!

We love the deep emotion with this picture. A dad is a girls first love…

Congrats N&D….Thanks for helping us end 2015 on a high note!

ART MUSEUM ENGAGEMENT SHOOT: KHALILAH & EMEKA

He saw his shot and he took it….When Emeka caught Khalilah’s eye as she was walking in the mall, he knew he couldn’t let the opportunity pass him by and just had to walk up to her and introduce himself.  After exchanging pleasantries and having a brief conversation, the spark was lit and they have not looked back since.  Talk about love at first sight!  We had the privilege of spending some time with them recently to shoot their engagement photo’s and it was immediately obvious to us just how much they love each other!  So here you go…

We love this door and of course the beautiful couple in front of it adds to it.

Aren’t they just adorable together!

Their love is effortless…

Khalilah really worked our shopping mall reenactment.

Love it!

Congratulations once again on your engagement!!

PHILADELPHIA WEDDING: TAHARA & RICKEY

We could not have asked for a more loving, easy going couple to spend this beautiful day with earlier this summer.  Tahara & Rickey are two of the sweetest people you will meet and so in love with each other  They have been together for some years now and both knew that neither one of them were going to leave each others side.  It was only right that they celebrate their love, for the world to see, in front of their closest friends and family!    Tahara & Rickey were referred to us by our past clients Kisha & Mike, and it was great running into Kisha at the wedding.  Sit back and relax while enjoying a few of our favorites!

Rickey you are looking very sharp!

Tahara and Rickey opted for a first look.  We absolutely love the intimate feel of first looks and it seems to make the rest of the day go smoother.

ARTESANO IRON WORKS, PA WEDDING : DANIELLE & KALEFE

The Look of Love – Can’t you feel the love from the above picture?  They are too cute!   After meeting back in 2005 at a house party during their undergrad college years, the time had finally arrived for Danielle & Kalefe to express their love for one another and for the world to see.  We could not have asked for a better way to finish our summer weddings this year (despite the rain), than to get back together with Danielle & Kalefe and their diverse families and friends from all over the world.  If you missed their ‘Spelman meets Morehouse‘ – Engagement Session from back in the spring, be sure to go back and check it out here.  We appreciate them allowing us the freedom to document their beautiful wedding. Enjoy!

We were able to head over to the Double Tree Hotel here in Philadelphia to catch some action of the organized chaos of the guys getting ready.

Even the intermittent rain could not stop them for enjoying the intimate moment of their first look together before they became husband & wife.

Although its almost right in our backyard, this was our first time working at Artesano Iron Works, and we must say we adored the artsy feel of the whole place!

Danielle & Kalefe surprised their guests with a surprise DJ set in the middle of the party, and it turned out awesome!

Congratulations D & K!  We know that your best days are in front of you, but thanks for letting us be there to document your amazing start!

PHILADELPHIA WEDDING : IATSE BALLROOM WEDDING

They were the couple that met in college some years ago and have never left one another’s side.  The road hasn’t always been easy but they have made it work and now look forward to their new life together just across the border in Canada.  We met both Margaret & Jason for the very first time on the day of their wedding.  It didn’t take long for us to see after observing them together that they have something special, something lasting…and we were happy to be there to document one of the biggest days of their life.

As we have alluded to, we are a little behind in blogging, so we have lots to catch up on. So enough of the talking already, on to the images!

Beautiful!

Jason waiting patiently for the “woman of his dreams” to meet him at the altar.

…and we’re married now with all smiles!!!

Then it was time to head over to the reception, but not before stopping on Penn’s landing for a few bridal party pics.

How adorable are these two!!

Then it was time to head over to the IATSE Ballroom, where LilyVEvents did a magnificent job in setting the decor for the evening.

Midway through the night Margaret & Jason changed into some more traditional garb & then danced the night away.

We really enjoyed being around so much culture, and all of the colors of the day just made it that much better and brighter.  Congratulations again and again M & J, thanks for trusting us to document your love.  We are wishing you all the best in your new lives in Canada!
