A Rainy Wedding Day at Fiddler’s Elbow One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is watching my bride and groom read their vows in private. It’s such a genuine moment, filled with all the promises of this day and forever to come. When I heard Mark’s vows to Jessie, she wasn’t the only […]

A Woohoo Wedding Day Danielle and Nick are married! This seems a bit of a shock only because when I first spoke with Danielle back in 2017, her wedding day seemed so far away! She was my first booking for 2019, and somehow the day has already come and gone! It sure left it’s mark […]

A Lauren Kearns Bride I know this is a very odd header for a sneak peek wedding blog, but follow me here! I want to take you back to Kathleen and David’s proposal story! One warm January Friday, Kathleen and David went out for dinner to a local Mexican restaurant. With unusually warm weather, Kathleen […]

ivory wedding details and pearls for this classic bride wedding at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club Spring wedding

Love & Marriage Love and marriage…go together like a horse and carriage. Yes, I’ve been singing this classic Frank Sinatra song over and over, ever since writing this title. However annoying that has been, I feel like it is definitely an appropriate title for Carolyn and Taylor’s wedding blog post. Why? Carolyn and Taylor’s reverend […]

Hindu Ceremony at Natirar I photographed my first Hindu ceremony last Saturday, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. First of all, Dana and Arun were awesome about walking me through what to expect. They were not at all concerned about the fact that I had never photographed an Indian wedding before, and I […]

Spring Wedding at the Mansion at Natirar

Joyful Spring Wedding at Natirar Emily and Scott’s wedding was absolutely stunning! However, that’s not what makes this wedding day so magical. What did make it so magical? Let’s start with the fact that they both got each other two cards (and thought they were so clever!). Emily’s crinkle-nose when she smiles. The moment Dad […]

Glitter and Glamorous Details There are many things that make up a wedding photographer’s dream. A neatly organized box of wedding details is definitely one of them!

Christmas Bride at Natirar When I pulled up to Natirar for my very last wedding of 2018, I was greeted by the twinkling lights settled on the brick wall, leading up to the mansion.

A Beautiful, Blustery Fall Wedding Saturday greeted us with gorgeous light and glowing trees. I texted Laura, my bride, to wish her a happy wedding day and her response was “mind the wind!” No kidding! It was a super windy day in the 200 acre wood that makes up Natirar Park! It’s no secret that […]

Married at Natirar While I felt like I got to know Ali and Matt pretty well at their engagement session, I learned so much more about them on their wedding day! When I first walked into Natirar’s main hall, I saw all kinds of one-of-a-kind signs that Ali, the DIY Natirar bride that she is, […]

A Good Apple I feel like it was ages ago when I first spoke to Kristen and John about their Fall 2018 wedding at Natirar and their rehearsal dinner at Alstede’s in Chester. With John’s family coming from North Carolina, they wanted to welcome their guests with a casual country dinner that included apple picking […]
