Now that summer is over, it’s time to embrace the change of colors and cooler temperatures. Dana & John celebrated their wedding day on the first day of fall. It was an amazing day filled with family, friends, love and laughter.
The one thing you can’t predict when planning a wedding or proposal is weather on that day. Despite the arrival of Hurricane Florence, the proposal that was planned months in advance was still a go at Pennslanding under the Ben Franklin Bridge. Our equipment held up to the weather and we’re so excited to share the photos.
Even during the busy summer wedding season, we make some time to give back to the community. We love what we do and we love seeing others smile. It was a priceless opportunity to donate our services to ADNN (Athletes with Disabilities Network Northeast). A full day of sports activities for children and adults with disabilities organized by Executive Director Brandon Holiday. “There’s no replacement for a competitive spirit.”

What's the one thing you can't predict when planning a wedding? Yup, it's the weather.

Their reception was absolutely entertaining highlighted by an Eagles chant celebrating Philadelphia's Championship this year.
We got to spend 2 hours with this lovely couple during their engagement shoot starting with City Hall of Philadelphia to Race Street Pier at Penns Landing.
