lauren + james 7.22.15

the adorable lauren + james were married on a perfect wednesday afternoon {yes, hump day!} my friend lauren asked me to shoot her intimate ceremony and some portraits and it was a pleasure. lauren looked beautiful with babies breath in her hair and her vintage inspired dress and of course her red shoes, james kept it cool in a black button down and sperry topsiders. they were married at deep cut gardens, if you haven't been.. go.. right away, this place is beautiful. the ceremony was short and sweet and lilly their pup, served as ring girl! after a great big sealing their vows with a kiss we wandered the grounds for some quick portraits! they are road tripping to nashville, should be a great trip! congrats l + j lots of love on your journey as mr. and mrs. xo

amber + brian 7.18.15

this awesome duo was married in philly on a very hot saturday afternoon! amber wore a beautiful vintage dress with a modern twist and she wore her hair upswept to the side.! brian forgot his cool socks, but still managed to look very dapper in a grey suit! i knew i loved this couple when amber and i were pointing out all the same off beat spots to stop for portraits along our route and i think my heart may have skipped a beat when they told me they love my use of negative space {my heart's all aflutter just thinking of these 2!} we made the trek in the heat for some portraits and then headed to the reception space - a very cool location called power plant productions.. loads of white walls, white ceilings and natural light {photographer's dream} they chose a simple but modern palette with shades of green, white and a touch of blue. loved the yarn wall hangings and their tassel wall for their photo booth backdrop - so fresh and new! their ceremony was short and sweet and included a cartwheeling flower girl. a wall was covered in old black white movies throughout the night, so neat! some awesome music, think i heard some my morning jacket in there, glow sticks, bathroom humor and delicious food made for  a very fun day! love when i get to work with couples who i could be buddies with and i wish these 2 all the love on their adventure ahead! xo a + b!
