A COZY AND PLAYFUL IN HOME SESSION.

these two snuggle up for an in home session.

wait until you see the smiles and laughs.
photographing a cozy and playful in home session has been on our minds lately, and pretty sure these two clearly filled that that yearning to photograph one. the super special thing about these two is that they will be celebrating their 5 year anniversary in may, so if this cozy and playful in home session wasn’t a celebration of that, i don’t know what is. we are just so obsessed with these two and their love that they have for each other. this love is so pure, clean and true to them. and i bet you can’t tell me otherwise.
home – harmony redesign co
makeup – vero leigh

now, before we get to the images, let’s talk about my friend Tim real quick. Tim is an inspiring wedding videographer. he had reached out to me a month or so ago looking to create a project of an artist performing their craft. i, of course, agreed! to be honest, i have never had anyone ever photographing me doing my thang, so my appreciation is SKY HIGH! i am still in awe and have so much gratitude for Tim. please, if you are a fellow photographer looking for a small clip like this, check out his work!! i believe that it’s so important for any in the service industry to hire someone to create you a highlight video. i don’t think i ever realized how important it was until i saw this. thank you so much again, Tim!!

AN ELEGANT ROMANTIC WINTER WEDDING

at rusty rail brewing company

ashley & nick

 

this was the most elegant and romantic winter wedding that i have ever witnessed or photographed. and ashley was the actual image of a perfectly elegant bride. (wait until you see her dress) when ashley had inquired with me about her winter wedding, i had all visions running through my mind. i knew that she wouldn’t let me down by hosting the most elegant and romantic winter wedding ever. and you’ll be able to see for yourself, she knew what she was doing. she’s a smart cookie AND killer photographer. go check out her website here!

ashley and nick are literally the most kind hearted, warm and welcoming humans. their love is so unique, and perfect. you know when your so in love and you feel like you and your other are the only two in the room. this was them. they had tunnel vision totally directed right towards each other. and you could just see it. you could see their love just floating around and wrapping all of their guests at their elegant romantic winter wedding.

ashley and nick’s personality was ALL OVER this wedding through and through. first off, they hosted their wedding at rusty rail brewing company. THEY. LOVE. BEER. this is a brewery. so obviously it made sense to have an elegant winter wedding at a brewery. duh! and the staff here was out of this world! we were SOOOO appreciated by them, which doesn’t always happen and they even offered us a beer at the end of the night AND brought it to us! thank you rusty rail! next, ashley chose one of our favorite makeup artists the bonafide ginger who SLAYED ashley’s entire look. go ahead and check out her bridal portraits and tell me she isn’t slayin’. then they hired splints and daisies who turned that place into a romantic garden straight out of another country. it was so whimsical. she nailed the whole elegant romantic winter wedding look. sapphire road weddings had te the perfect touches to all of ashley’s visions! nick and ashley love to dance and party so they knew they had to invite leeroy to dj this party. leeroy from klock entertainment brought it! he owned that wedding. he had people sweating and burning calories. (you have to see his special portraits below) and lastly, they hired the ruby company for video. ryan was so amazing to work with and just knew exactly what to do to get the shot. he nailed it!

A BOHEMIAN FISHTOWN WEDDING

evan and kayla get married at the sculpture courtyard, fishtown philadelphia

the most straight up cool and most boujee couple ever.

this. place. was. sick. this. coupe. was. the. best.

no, really. wait until you see the sculpture courtyard. it was the best option ever for a bohemian fishtown wedding. you know the best places are hidden gems. and evan and kayla’s style fit it to a T. when you think of a bohemian fishtown wedding, what comes to mind? for me it’s a space thats not like the other. it’s un-used. it’s raw. it’s intimate. it has quirks and cool corners. and once again, this location had that ALL! the literal best option for a bohemian fishtown wedding.

and i have to brag on my couple for a second. they designed the entire thing. they made it a space of their own. they decor’ed (i know its not a word) it with details that pertained to them so very deeply. they used photos of couples who have been so influential in our world. they added in rentals that were so their style. they added a small little not in the bathroom that i personally, thought was the coolest thing. i can’t stress enough how much we love and appreciate when weddings are unique and personable and that they truly portray the couples’ love, personalities and styles.

we’re so thankful that kayla and evan trusted us with their bohemian fishtown wedding.

here’s to the badass vendors!!

venue – the sculpture courtyard // makeup – jessica marin // hair – liane catolico & kat robinson // florals – vault and vine // dress – theia collection // invites – minted weddings // rentals – lovebird vintage rentals & liberty rental // desserts – federal donuts & magpie’s // dinner – nomad pizza & dibruno bros // music – paris love & dj prime one // headpiece – amaroq design
