Spano’s at the White Sands Wedding | Point Pleasant, NJ

I really like Natalie & Adam.  They are just so easy to work with and so happy together.  Their wedding was on the beach at Spano’s at the White Sands in Point Pleasant, NJ.  It was a little hike for Maureen and I but it was very worth it;)  This was actually the first ceremony that I’ve ever photographed on the beach and it was beautiful outside.

We just had a great time photographing Natalie & Adam during their wedding day.  I really liked the shots of them sitting in beach chairs.  The idea popped into my head and we asked a nice couple if we could borrow their chairs for a few photos.  They turned out great just like everything else.  Thank you Natalie & Adam and I hope you stay in touch and enjoy your photos.

Center City Philadelphia Engagement Session | Rose & Eric

Let me preface this post by saying that Rose called me sometime a week ago and said something to the effect of “We don’t want any kissing, holding hands or cheesy love photos.” And I said no problem we can do whatever you like;)  I think it turned out pretty nice.  We just took some pictures right in front of their house in a cute little alley in center city.  Special thanks to their two awesome dogs. (Eric runs his own business selling dog supplies)  I can’t wait to photograph your upcoming wedding this September!  Enjoy your pictures.

Valley Forge Engagement Session | Kaelyn & Mike

This engagement session is special in a few ways: I’ve known Kaelyn for 2 years as we both worked together at Lifetouch taking school pictures, I also met Maureen working at Lifetouch, and I have never done a photo shoot almost entirely in the rain!  It was an omen when Maureen and I were driving up to Valley Forge and my wind shield wiper just broke off…  Luckily we had just gotten off the highway and were able to find a Jiffy Lube without too much trouble.. phew.

We pulled into the parking lot behind the Valley Forge Museum and waited as the rain progressively got worse & I tested my new wipers… Suddenly it didn’t seem like such a good idea to go through with the engagement session.  It was raining pretty hard and it didn’t look like it was going to stop.  But Kaelyn & Mike were prepared to get soaked and so were we;)  I’m always willing to do whatever it takes to get unique images and I actually was excited to be able to photograph in the rain since it’s totally different from what I normally do.

Most of the shots that I took down below were taken underneath a large umbrella held by Maureen.  It really made me realize how much I move around to get the best angle to photograph from.  It took a little while to get into a good rhythm using the umbrella.. actually once we got to the point where we were all soaked and didn’t care I think we just started to have fun and enjoy the evening.

I had such a good time with Kaelyn & Mike.  It was so liberating to just be out in the rain getting soaked in the beautiful open landscape of Valley Forge.  As the session wore on I was amazed to realize that it had stopped raining and I could step out from under the umbrella!  They sky looked so dark blue and ominous that I specifically took care to capture it during out final shots at sunset.

All in all this was a very special session with a wonderful couple.  I can’t thank you guys enough for being so awesome!  I hope you enjoy your pictures.

p.s.
The last image in this post is a panoramic shot that I took just after we had finished and I looked at the sunset and said WOW.  It’s actually four images stitched together.  Enjoy.

[...] a wedding photographer!  But we had such a great time working with them all the way back to their engagement session in the rain.  They’re truly a great couple and there’s no denying that the camera likes Mike as [...]

Matt,
I just viewed the engagement photo session of KAelyn and Mike and was so impressed with your work I had to let you know. Beautiful! Of course you had a beautiful subject, (my daughter) :-).
I agree…The sky WAS amazing! Glad you went through with it despite the weather and got some really nice pictures!
Kaelyn has a good eye for photography and has proven it once again by choosing you for her special day.
I’m looking forward to meeting you at the wedding.
Sincerely, Evelyn Michaels

Wedding Collection Changes | Effective August 1st 2011

All of the following changes will go into effect on August 1st, 2011.  Any new clients that contact me BEFORE August 1st can receive my current wedding collections or the new collections below… So if you like my work then get in touch with me ASAP:)  Here are the changes:

  1. For all Engagement Sessions: you will be granted the ability to download full sized files from their session directly from the proofing site at no cost.  This means that you can download the images for free to use as you like before the wedding. (Save the date cards, etc.)  The images will also be included on the hi-resolution DVD you will receive with your wedding images 4 weeks after the wedding.
  2. Each collection includes an Assistant Photographer.  The assistant photographer’s job is to photograph as well as assist me at your wedding.  The assistant stays with me and does not travel independently; so in the event that you need someone who will drive separately, (For example: If you want both the bride and groom getting ready at the same time in separate locations etc.) you will need to add a second photographer to your collection.
  3. Additional hours of wedding coverage will be billed at $250/hr.
