A+P just because…

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Here are a few images from Angelique and Pete’s just because photo session. We had a blast walking around and creating photos that would make great canvas wraps for their apartment. Most people thought that we were on an engagement session and kept stopping us and congratulating them.
You do not need a special occasion to have photos taken. Just Because sessions are so much fun! A perfect anniversary gift!

Angelique - Thanks again! They turned out amazing! We can't wait to order our GIGANTIC gallery wrap of the sunset shot for our living room. Those big empty wall won't fill themselves!

James Bressi - Loooooooooove these photos. Angie & Pete, you guys look great and obviously the photog was very talented. Hmmm... I'm inspired to have a photo-shoot that's just all about me... :)

Sugar and Spice

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Arden Rose was such a super star! I have been looking forward to working with Arden and her family since the first time I met with them. Arden will be Bat Mitzvahed in a few weeks followed by a celebration at the Bellevue.
We wanted to capture some great, fun portraits for the occasion. We found some great spaces at the Sherman Mills, even an old car and a motorcycle to use! Great thanks goes to Melissa Paul of Evantine Design for all her hard work and the funky white chair and Dave Williams of dvideography who is going to create the most amazing montage for the big party.
We are looking forward to Arden’s big day.

4.16.09    Sarah and Michael

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Photos around Rittenhouse Square… that is what Sarah and Michael wanted the feel and vibe of the city. This is their neighborhood, can’t tell you how many people we ran into that knew them! A beautiful day! We walked around and had a great time, got some great shots of Zoe too! We meet Sarah’s mom and grandmom in the park too, they were watching the dog and enjoying the day also. We ended up relaxing at the french cafe on the square for a few drinks and clams…
Look forward to your wedding day! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

Amanda & Alyssa Senior Portraits

Monday, April 27th, 2009

What a fun shoot we had with the girls last week! Chesapeake City is a beautiful background for photos.
Mandy and Alyssa did not like their traditional senior portraits and they asked me to capture images that would be more fun and meant something to them and their parents.

It is not too late to have mkPhoto do the same for you!

Allison & Ethan    April 11th, 2009

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

The Couple: Allison Phillips and Ethan Hasbrouck
The Wedding Date: April 11th, 2009
Seeing each other for the first time: Rodney Square (across from the Hotel)
The Ceremony: Du Barry Room, Hotel DuPont
The Reception: The Gold Ballroom-Hotel Du Pont, Wilmington, DE
The Getaway: St Lucia Island
What I remember most about Allison and Ethan: Their appreciation for really good photography, and their willingness to let us do our thing! And yes the rain stopped so we had the oppertunity to capture and create some beautiful outdoor photographs. It was meant to be that day for Allison and Ethan. We had already photographed Lindsey’s wedding, Allison’s sister, also the Maid of Honor so we were very happy to be there. We felt like family. We were so comfortable working with the families, it was so nice to be welcomed with open arms! Allison’s Dad, Craig is the leader of the band “Secret Service” which performed that evening. Both sisters on stage singing, WOW it was a beautiful and fun party. The flowers were created by Tom Covello of Celebrations Design Group
I would also like to thank Jillian from the Hotel DuPont , you are a great organizer and host! Thank you everyone for making our day a truly wonderful experience.
Have fun on your Honeymoon!

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

What a great start to the season! Rebecca and Josh and their families were such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning.
They were both so calm and relaxed all day. We started at the Ritz Carlton and walked to the PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Hamilton Building capturing some fun portraits on the way. Big thanks goes to Judy Garst from PAFA for keeping the day flowing well.
The beautiful flowers were by Beautiful Blooms , and we were entertained by Ebe Fusion.

Bernice and Adam    4.04.09

Monday, April 13th, 2009

What a way to start off the wedding season! We were so looking forward to working with Bernice and Adam, they are a fun and relaxed couple. We did their engagement shoot several weeks back and knew this was going to be a fun day! Bernice and Adam were married at PAFA(The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.) in Philadelphia. It was sure a fitting location for them, as they both love the arts and wanted something different. Bernice specializes in the restoration and preservation of antique clothing and textiles. She traveled all the way from her home in London to work in the philadelphia area where she met Adam. It was a very beautiful affair with flowers by Beautiful Blooms , and we were entertained by the pleasing sounds of Ebe . Lynda Barness of I do Wedding Consulting organized the entire day and made sure everything went off as planned and that everyone was were they were supposed to be. Bernice met Adam for the first time before the ceremony outside around City Hall. I also want to thank Judi Garst from PAFA for all her help! And a very special thanks to Jeff Reeder from Jeff Reeder Photography for helping get some great shots!
Thanks Again,

Mike and Jeff
