Hello & Happy Friday! We hope you had the most amazing Thanksgiving, packed full of family, friends, and all your favorite foods. Maybe this is an odd thing to admit, and I don’t know if other people eat this for Thanksgiving, but I LOVE oyster-filling. It’s something my grandma always made, and it personally doesn’t feel right to me if it’s not at the Thanksgiving table. SO big thanks to by mom this year for coming in strong with the Thanksgiving oyster-filling! Every year we have SO much to be thankful for, but this year feels a little extra special, with the addition of Baby Zara. She’s such a gift in our lives, and there are no words to say how much she means to our family.
Something that we are also especially thankful for is ALL The amazing folks that we get to work with. Truly we work for the BEST people on the whole planet, and that’s no joke! Today we are introducing you to some of them! Last year we shot Dana & Matt’s engagement photos at Hickory Run State Park, and if you’ve seen those images, you probably haven’t forgotten them, because Dana & Matt are straight up amazing together. We love their chemistry, and how they clearly compliment each other so perfectly. They’re made for one another!
We also love how they made this wedding day such a true celebration! It felt like every moment was dripping in joy and laughter. These two faced a curl ball in the planning of their wedding when their venue suddenly shut down and they had to find a new location, but they took that obstacle and made pure magic out of it! And we were so honored to witness and capture it all.
These two have showed so much gratitude and kindness in all that they do, and can’t thank them enough for making us feel so welcomed and a part of celebrating their union. Some of our favorite moments from their day include the Lion Dance at their wedding, a surprise for their guests! (You’ll see it was EPIC!) In addition to that we loved seeing them just be fully present on their wedding day. Soaking in every hilarious and heart-felt speech, and dancing with their beloved mothers. (Seriously Dana, I could hardly keep it together when you danced with your mom!) Also we can’t help but mention the sunset roof-top images we got to take. I mean to say it was a photographers dream, that would be an understatement. Basically Dana & Matt, made Philly look GOOD!
Dana & Matt, we’ve been so excited to share these images with you. We’ll stop talking so you can get to the good stuff. We had the best time on your day, thanks for always thinking of us, and we hope these images put a massive smile on your face, and serve as a beautiful reminder of the memories that you made on this AMAZING day!
