05.30.09 Erika + Matthew

Erika & Matthew were married last month at Packer Chapel on the campus of Lehigh University where they met as students. Packer is old & beautiful and one of my favorite churches in Bethlehem.

Their reception was at Saucon Valley Country Club which was beyond gorgeous thanks to the effort and planning by Erika and her wedding planner Meredith Tomasulo of Elegant Engagements.

I have been working a lot this summer with Mustafah Abdulaziz as my second and his work has been outstanding. Some of the images here are his and I greatly appreciate his efforts.

I'm sure Erika and Matthew do as well.

05.24.09 Nina + Ken

You get to know people pretty quickly as a wedding photographer.

You begin the day and barely know your couple. Up until then you’ve had a couple of phone calls and maybe a meeting or two. It’s all very cordial & professional.

But the emotion of a wedding day changes all that. You get a peek into someone’s life and you feel close to them.

That's how I felt about Ken and Nina. They were wonderful.

Ken was truly moved. His emotion reminded me of me at my own wedding. Nina is warm and beautiful. She was the picture of grace all day long.

And she has great taste in shoes. Love those shoes.

05.23.09 Erica + Bob

Bob and Erica married two weeks ago at Newberry Estates, a beautiful little country spot near Dallas, Pennsylvania.

They have a great story: Bob & Erica have been together since high school but spent the last five years apart. Bob works as a television producer on the West Coast. Erica was going to med school in Hershey.

On their wedding day it was like they had never been apart.

Thanks to my friend Amber Breiner who really rocked the house as my second shooter. She helped me pull together a batch of images I love.

Keep in touch, you two. I am very, very happy you can be together now.
