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

Let me start off by saying that we are so lucky to have clients like June & Alex.  We had an awesome engagement session with them last year (Click HERE to view) at the Art Museum and last weekend they held their wedding just down the street at the Ben Franklin Institute.  Technically they were married at Saint Agatha – Saint James parish over by Pennsylvania University where they both went to college.  After the ceremony we went on a tour of the Penn campus to take some wedding party portraits.  We were able to take some beautiful images since June & Alex’s wedding party was super cooperative and nice (Thank You!!).

After we were finished with portraits we headed to the Franklin Institute.  The whole first floor was open along with the exhibits so there was plenty to do for the guests until the reception officially started.  I made sure to include some images of their guests exploring the exhibits at the institute;)  Afterwards we were able to steal June & Alex away for a few images with the giant heart.  As we setup for the giant heart shots I realized that here’s nothing more creepy than a giant heart especially when I realized that it was still beating…  Anyways we had a fantastic time and we really enjoyed photographing your wedding June & Alex!  We would love to see you two in two in the future;)  Enjoy your images!!

Dorian & Ben are: both doctors, perfect for each other and incredibly vulgar and hilarious;) I remember back to their engagement session where it snowed in October (View it HERE) and they warned us that they cursed like sailors.  I was actually looking forward to their wedding since they are so genuinely nice as well as funny.  They delivered on their end of the bargain as Maureen & I were continually laughing.

We started out at their house in Northern Liberties with some getting ready shots.  Since Dorian & Ben are both doctors we decided to use their skeleton model for a few ring shots;)  After we were done at their house we headed over to Tendenza to get setup for their ceremony.  They had an awesome Rabbi who shares in part their sense of humor.  We have never photographed a Jewish ceremony at Tendenza before but the Chuppah (What they stand under during the ceremony) was beautiful and really looked great in Tendenza.

Due to the fact that that there was a monsoon outside we just used the insides of Tendenza to create our images.  Thank you soooo much Dorian & Ben for letting us be a part of your wedding day.  We truly loved working with you and we really hope to work with you two in the future or just catch up sometime.  Thanks again and we hope you enjoy the photos that we created with you!

Annie & Justin are two of the most fun and genuine people that we have ever worked with (View their engagement session HERE.)  They are actually the neighbors of Helen & Rob whose wedding we photographed last November at the Stotesbury Mansion.  If you look through those pictures (Click to view Helen & Rob’s wedding) you will see Annie and Justin dancing away at the reception!  Luckily Helen & Rob were in attendance at the wedding below to even the score;)

Annie & Justin’s wedding was held at the Grace Presbyterian Church in Jenkintown and their reception (as well as their portraits) was held at the Cairnwood Mansion in Bryn Athen.  We had such a great time at their wedding since everyone was dancing like crazy to a live band.  Justin even helped out on drums and vocals for a few songs;)  I think my favorite part of this wedding (If I was forced to choose;) was when the band played Enter Sandman by Metallica towards the end of the reception.. Truly awesome.

Thank you sooooo much Annie & Justin for letting us be a part of your wedding and I hope to keep in touch and maybe work with you guys in the future.  Enjoy!

After two engagement sessions (Session 1, Session 2) and almost a year of anticipation we arrived at the wedding of Julie & Ed.  For the sake of brevity I will just say the Julie & Ed are awesome people and they put soooo much work into their wedding at Tendenza.  They had such a relaxed and fun attitude ever since I met them and I’m so happy to have been a part of their wedding day.

But the best part is… we’re still not done working with them!  They decided to do separate day wedding portraits so they could focus on enjoying their wedding day instead of running around taking pictures.  This means that we can do ANYTHING and now worry about rushing back to the ceremony or reception.. I can’t wait!  So keep an eye out for some more Julie & Ed on my website but enjoy the images below.  Thanks again Julie & Ed:)

Crystal & Erik’s engagement session was more like hanging out than a portrait session.  Erik is a personal friend of mine as well as my brother, thus I was so happy to be able to photograph his wedding to Crystal.  We’re all Bloomsburg University graduates:) We decided to try a new location that is favorably close to us now that we live in Glenside: Prophecy Creek Park.  I absolutely love the gigantic sycamore tree growing by the pond.. anyways thanks for a great Monday afternoon and we will see you in May!Prophecy creek park engagement sessionProphecy creek park engagement sessionProphecy creek park engagement sessionProphecy creek park engagement session
