Meet Sabrina and Steve TRUE Philadelphian’s! They LOVE the city and that is why they choose to do their pre wedding photos in this amazing city. We walked around and had lots of fun capturing Sabrina and Steve intersecting with each other- just as they are! They are in love and crazy for each other! Thanks for a great afternoon! We can’t wait for the wedding of your dreams!
Kim and Chris are getting married at the end of August. They are the third couple from a family that we have had a chance to work with. You may remember Joe & Beth and Matt & Mary.
Kim and Chris seemed sad during their pre-wedding consultation that their dogs will not be part of the wedding day and they will not be in photos, so we decided to do a very casual photo session at Carousel Park. It was so great following them around as they took a walk.
The dogs are really happy for Kim and Chris to be getting married and so are we! We are looking forward to capturing the moments next month!
The Couple: Ashley White and Greg Palandrani Getting Ready: Moms home in Greenville, DE Ceremony: Greenville Country Club, Greenville, DE Pics of Couple, Bridal Party and Families: Greenville CC Reception: Greenville CC What I remember most about Ashley and Greg and the Wedding Day: Greg and Ashley you are a beautiful couple! In LOVE! That’s for sure! We had done an Engagement shoot several months ago at Greenville so I knew this was going to be a very special couple and a very special day! We were VERY lucky to get photos outside, it was rainy earlier and I was wishing for Greg and Ashley that it would clear up. It all worked out! I was so happy for them, At the end of the reception Ashley and Greg made a very dramatic exit from the club, hundreds of guests waving bright glowing smoking sparklers lit their way along the circular driveway to their getaway Porsche. I would like to thank all the parents especially Carol for all your help with planing the engagement shoot etc.. Donna, Ashley’s mom welcomed us warmly into her beautiful home where Ashley started her day. Thank You! The cake was very unusual, a creation by Liz Marden Gourmet Cakes located in Hockessin, DE. Another amazing job by Linda Gaynor who was the organizer from the Greenville CC and Lora from Hardin Associates the event planner. The entire day was filled with gorgeous flowers from European Gallery. Thanks Greg and Ashley for a very enjoyable day. We all look forward to you ordering photos and creating your wedding book.

The Couple: Irene Kalikas and Terri Kalogrias Getting Ready: Parents home in Richboro, PA Ceremony: St. George Greek Orthodox Church, Philadelphia, PA Pics of Couple, Bridal Party and Families: Second Bank in Historic Philadephia Reception: The Curtis Center, Philadelphia, PA What I remember most about Irene and Terri and the Wedding Day: Irene and Terri you were amazing to work with! Full of life and very willing to be photographed, a pleasure to be with and a real pleasure to see the two of you interact with each other. They have several important things in common, strong family values and good Mexican food. All of the families and friends were just as fun to be around. The reception was no exception to having a GREAT time. Money always in the air around the dance floor. The dancing and partying at the reception was amazing, it went on and on to the sounds of “Atlantis of PA” The entire Bridal party were really a great help and so cooperative! We also were so warmly welcomed by Irene’s parents Kaula and Nick, and in traditional Greek style we were asked as soon as we arrived at the house, would you like something to eat and drink! This entire family is soo close, nice to see… The Greek Orthodox Ceremony was beautiful, very symbolic and meaningful. The food, the decor the Greek band all top notch! Thanks everyone for making us feel special and for treating us so well. Please take a look at Irene’s and Terri’s Wedding Day Slide Show HERE
Ethan’s parents selected us to photograph his Bar Mitzvah in November. I prefer to meet the soon to be young adults before their important day to establish a relationship. Ethan wanted to include his dog Cona in photos and we could easily do that during the portrait session. They were both a pleasure to work with. We all had fun in the yard around the studio.
Can you tell Ethan is a Steelers fan? I am looking forward to working with Ethan and his family again in a couple of months. Thank you dad – Glen for helping us on the photo session.

Full of life, a pleasure to be with and a joy to see the two of you interact with each other. In the speeches, Christine’s sister Andrea, made a comment about how they were both dreaming of this day! It was a VERY hot and sticky day(and rainy at one point, and they still wanted to walk around and get photos that would reflect the “feel” of philly. And later the sky opened up and a big storm passed by during the cocktail hour, dramatic sky, I love that! WOW! All of the families and friends were just as fun to be around. The Please Touch Museum was a great place for the the reception, Cocktail hour was held around the beautifully restored carousel. We documented some great interior night shots around the exhibits. Christine and Rich traveled to Barcelona and Costa del Sol, Spain for their honeymoon. Thank you Theresa and Dominick for your warm and generous hospitality.
