“In life, it is not where you go; it is who you travel with.” -CHARLES SCHULZ Welcoming Philadelphia’s newest residents to this city’s classic institutions was such a joy! Baljeet and Umber had their one-year anniversary session in the Art Museum area — but their session wasn’t without a little adventure! First we had an […]

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” – RUMI Hello, lovelies! It’s no secret: I like a good poem. Pablo Neruda’s work was read at my wedding, among others, and I read Shakespeare for fun in high school (I know, I know…). Dorkiness aside, it’s hard when you’re hopeless romantic to […]

“In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.” – MAYA ANGELOU Rachael & Scott braved a surprise on their wedding day — true, piping-hot summer heat –during their autumn wedding at the Loft at Landis.  I have to forgo my usual wedding intro and just give flat-out props to them and […]

“You are my today and all of my tomorrows.” – LEO CHRISTOPHER It was a perfect September wedding — one with autumn in the air and summer sunlight peaking through the trees to shine on two souls who have found their number one. Sam and Jesse’s vision for their wedding day included the old world […]

“The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want.” -F. SCOTT FITZGERALD Would you have ever thought you could find piece of France in New Jersey? Thanks to wedding photographers Lauren and Tim Fair of Lauren Fair Photography, I had the immense pleasure of being […]

“Of everything I have seen, it is you I want to go on seeing.” – PABLO NERUDA Amy & Troy were married in front of their closest friends and family on a cool summer evening with just a kiss of autumn in the air. Their charming, bohemian wedding at The Maas Building in Kensington was […]

“You are the road of love and my home.” – RUMI Anniversary photography sessions exude a quiet romance, and capturing the beginning of a marriage is honor — whether it’s on the first day or the 365th day. Lauren and Grant’s one-year anniversary session was transcendent in the early morning light in Philadelphia’s Old City […]

“You are one of my nicest thoughts.” – GEORGIA O’KEEFE When you ask Amy about her fiance, Troy, her face lights up the room. She takes a few seconds to reflect on her favorite thing about him and she says, “His thoughtfulness…Definitely.” She goes on to describe how he cares for her, for family and […]

“Is there a special way to say hello or good-bye in Scotland?” I asked my friend who is my expert on all things Scottish. “TA!!” said my friend. “You can say ‘ta!’ as a way to say good-bye.” And with a little “ta!” to Philly, my husband, Charles, and I were off to enjoy Edinburgh […]
