Carly and Adam had the most beautiful July day for their nuptials! Every detail was perfectly planned from the Grace Winery venue to the flowers by the amazing¬†Belovely Floral Design¬† to Carly’s beautiful hair piece from Anthropologie’s BHLN Line.

Their ceremony was held at Adam’s family’s church of St Agnes in West Chester, PA. We then headed back to Grace Winery for cocktail hour and dance filled reception! All ending with a sparkler send off.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through their big day as much as I had capturing it!!!

First let’s start with what is Encaustic Painting. The short answer is it is painting with hot beeswax, but for a more in-depth answer check out this link on Wikipedia.

To say I needed Leah‘s workshop was a understatement. I have felt the need lately to push myself creatively as an artist. You spend so much time managing your business that you sometimes forget that you need a creative kick in the pants.

I met Leah about 9 years ago at a photography conference at the the Marriott near the Philly airport. I was instantly captivated by her work. Fast forward to a couple of months ago when we became friends via Facebook and I see that she is offering a workshop right here in our home town. Queue me immediately emailing her and signing up for her workshop.

Truly, her workshop opened so many blocked creative doors for me. I am forever grateful for the knowledge and experience she shared with us over the workshop!

“To love abundantly is to live abundantly, and to love forever is to live forever.” – Henry Drummond

There is a certain look that only a couple who has been through both the tough and tender moments share. It is one of both adoration and trust. Knowing that you have both seen each other for who they truly are and respect each other all the more for it.

He adores her and watches out for her. She in return rewards him with her faithful steadfast love.

To say I loved this Valentine’s Day arrangement would be a understatement.

Purple is hands down one of my favorite colors! And when these arrived I knew I had to capture them against the dark purple walls in my home office.

Jessi truly outdid herself with this one!!

Huge thank you to my hubby for being so thoughtful!!!!

Remember Anne’s Maternity Shoot? Well meet her new little man.

Mom and Dad’s one request, “Can we get a image with the cats with the baby?”. Boom!! Ta Da!!! Not sure I would ever be able to recreate this as all the stars alined and we didn’t have to “Heard Cats” LOL.

He was absolute perfection during his session. Once we got him swaddled and the white noise running he was out and gave me all the shots we needed in under a hour!!!!

I LOVE when I idea pops in to my mind and I am able to trying make the vision come to fruition.

Meet Jill from Heart Breath Designs

It all started with this dress, which believe it or not, is actually 2 dresses in one. The ballgown skirt detaches and there is a sleek pencil dress underneath. Then came the location and finally the mask from Pucci Manuli by Ninn Apouladaki
