NORMANDY FARMS WEDDING: JEN & RAY

It has been said “To Love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to be loved by the person you love….is everything!”  While Bernard has known Ray since back in their Central High School days (258), we first met up with Jen and Ray, the couple last fall.  We had a chance to get to know a little more about them as we shot their engagement session and could clearly see the love they had for each other as they joked, cuddled and talked in their own little world while walking around the grounds of John James Audubon Park.  Now the big day they had been planning for months, had finally arrived and it was a beautiful one.  Together with family and friends at Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, PA we were about to witness Jen & Ray become one.  Enjoy some of our favorites from their day…

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.

Congratulations T & R!! Thanking for inviting us to document your big day!

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!
