McMasters Wedding Photography » Wedding Photography serving Philadelphia and Southeast PA.

During our initial meeting with Cassandre she warned us of Rays probable unwillingness to take photographs. However, when Matt & I got started with the two of them Ray was quite the opposite as we was made to be. We got to talking and he was only apprehensive about being told what to do and how to act in front of the camera. This wasn’t the case with us since we really enjoy when couples just have fun and are themselves, especially during the portrait part of the day.  It really shows and makes for better photographs when the couple is at ease and in their own little world.

The day also had all sorts of weather throughout the day from rain, to sun, to clouds, which made for some interesting photos, especially in the rain, which you will see below. This having been our first time at Appleford Estate  it was an incredible time. Thank you so much to Cassandre and Ray for being all around awesome to work with. We hope you enjoy the photographs.Appleford Estate Wedding Photos

Janine & Mike picked an awesome location for their engagement session: Janine’s parent’s house!  I love when our couples choose interesting and meaningful locations to them.  I also love it when our couple’s parents have awesome landscaping, horses (complete with barn), and lots of interesting structures to photograph against.  The best part is that it really didn’t feel like work at all since they are so easy to work with and I think really had fun during our session:)  Thanks again Janine & Mike for a great time and we hope you enjoy the images we created with you.

We introduced you to Natalie and Dan last fall for their engagement session at the Art Museum. Their ceremony and reception took place at two of the most interesting buildings Matt and I have been in.  I have always passed by St. Marks Church and the Union League but never thought much as to what was inside. St Marks has some of the oldest and detailed architecture I have ever seen, it was truly like being thrown back in time. After they were officially hitched we took the short walk back to the Union League. The Union League is an incredible piece of construction and history as well. The original front building housed the Unions meetings and now extends an entire city block. The ballroom where the party took place was decorated with previous presidents portraits, which you can see popping up in some of the photos; and a ghost infested balcony, or so that’s what the employees warned us of  :).  Its also in the perfect spot to grab the City Hall picture that Dan was ecstatic on getting. Natalie and Dan were so good-natured and accommodating through out it all. We had an incredible time with them and hope you enjoy the photographs.

Here we have Nina & Christian, another fantastic couple we have had the pleasure to work with. Our day began at the Hyatt Regency on Columbus Blvd, not to far from where we concluded their engagement session at the Race Street Pier.  Nina and her bridesmaids were getting ready several floors up in a room with an awesome view of the city.  We followed  her sister down a few floors to see Chris who was just about to be given a present from his future wife, an autographed Giants helmet. Matt & I then tagged along on the trolley to St. John the Evangelist Church downtown for the ceremony. We ventured back to the Hyatt to take the wedding party photos right there along the river. Nina chose an awesome color scheme, the girls in hot pink with complementing flowers and the guys with touches of orange down to their chuck taylors. They made for really vibrant photographs down by the water.

We finally arrived to the reception at Tendenza which we frequent quite often these days. These guys sure know how to have a good time and the dance floor was never dull for more than a minute.  We got quite a kick out of the four younger boys in the wedding party letting loose on the floor. We really had a great time working with Nina & Christian and hope you enjoy the photographs.

Angela & Evan are such a cute couple.  Since they both live in Boston so we were excited to meet them in person for the first time on their wedding day at the Mendenhall Inn in Mendenhall, PA.

We started out with some getting ready images at the Mendenhall Inn and then shortly worked our way over to the ceremony at Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church.  One of the coolest things about their wedding was where we took their wedding photos: The Nemours Mansion and Gardens.  We had been to Nemours a few weeks earlier with Angela’s mother to tour the space and we were very excited to be able to photograph there.  We had a great time and I think we took some of my favorite images (EVER)  there:)

After we finished at Nemours we headed back to the Mendenhall Inn and got on with the party!  Thank you Angela & Evan for a great time and we are sad to see you go back to Boston but hopefully we will meetup in the future.. We always offer a free family portrait to all of our wedding clients so keep that in mind;)  We hope you enjoy the photos that we created with you!
