What I remember most about their Wedding Day: Marlena and David you are a couple that enjoyed your wedding day! A loving and caring couple that’s for sure! We had an amazing time getting pics of the two of them and the bridal party/families at Greenville CC, the reception location. Their were some great backdrops of beautifully manicured gardens, fountains, stone walks and iron work on the property. I LOVE shooting at Greenville! Jana, thank you for helping Marlena and David get great photography coverage on their wedding day! WOW! what a beautiful day! We captured some great shots on the hill on the rear of the property, storm clouds forming, GREAT light, it was truly amazing! We just finished before it rained! We were all so lucky. Patricia and Arthur, thank you so much for your generous hospitality and warmth on the wedding day. It was nice to feel like family.
Marlena and David, you two are a very special couple! IN LOVE….. YES! I witnessed that ALL day! Thank you for giving us such fun and a very special day to Photograph. The reception at Greenville was full of Partying and dancing to the sounds of Philly Funk!! Ashley, Marlena’s sister really made everyone laugh(really laugh) and cry with her speech that was truly from the heart. Again a very special thanks to Marlena and David and all their families, the fun bridal party, Linda Gaynor and her efficient and generous staff at Greenville Country Club. Chris Maney from European Gallery provided all the flowers, the colors and arrangements were very well designed and original.

Christa & Scott    A walk around Kennett Square

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

A great pre-wedding/get to know the couple shoot with Christa and Scott! Kennett Square was a perfect place to walk around and really get to know Christa and Scott. Scott is a photographer too and really wanted the pictures of themselves to reflect just who they are. FUN! willing to take chances and just be who they are. I love the bright colors of the small town and the rustic feel it has to offer. Christa and Scott will be getting married on May 26, 2010 at the Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, NJ.

see you soon,

Ashley Austin Boutique- Grand Opening in Kennett Square

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

We are so very proud of Ashley White now Ashley Palandrani. Ashley married the handsome and supportive Greg Palandrani this past June. Greg and Ashley’s family have all helped get her boutique open. Ashley Austin is a very chic boutique that carries the most amazing shoes, handbags and accessories! I attended the Grand opening last month and it was amazing to see all the support and buzz that was around that evening. I had to park 4 blocks away! Whenever I am in Kennett I always stop in to say hello to Ashley. Only problem is I walk out with a bag of goodies for my wife every time I visit :) Ashley I wish you the very best with your new business venture.

Stop in a say hello to Ashley, she will find the perfect accessory for you. For shop location, information and directions click on Ashley Austin

Meet the new addition to the Ortega family. I photographed Amanda & Vlad’s wedding a few years ago. The boys have grown up so much. They were full of fun and energy during the photo shoot. Their photos are full of life and express their active personalities so well!

It is that time of the year! Cute sweaters, pumpkins, and fall colors…
We still have a few sessions open for family sessions before the holidays. Please call the studio to schedule. We will be designing custom holiday cards again.

We just love working with this family! Kim and Chris were the third couple getting married in the last two years. Kim got ready at her parent’s home in Pike Creek and the ceremony and reception took place at the Brandywine Country Club in Wilmington. Working with Shirly is always a pleasure. It was supposed to rain that day, but the rain held off until after the portraits and ceremony. Thank you everyone involved for making this day a success!
