Kari and Ryan made it clear from the beginning that photography was a priority in their wedding. Ryan is an accomplished photographer himself and he knew what he wanted.
We had a planning meeting a few weeks before their wedding and I was asking about what they might be interested in shooting on their wedding day. I'll never forget what Ryan said: "We hired you for a reason. You just do what you do."
Music to my ears. They gave me the time I needed & went everywhere I asked.
There was no way this wasn't going to be great.

If you've known me less than five years, you probably won't recognize me in the photo above.
Today is my anniversary.
It was one of the happiest days of my life & I am thankful to have these pictures to remember it. I see these images and I'm instantly there: Our family & friends, some no longer living, all celebrating along with us.
They are moments in time kept forever.
It makes me feel like my job is important, doing this for other people. Something I tell second shooters when they first start working for me: The images you make today will be important for 100 years. We have one shot at this. Don't screw it up.
My photographers certainly didn't.
Happy anniversary, babe.
p.s. The photographers: Chien-Chi Chang, Robb Hill, Thomas Broening, Tom Volk, Dan Delong, Laura Lakeway, Steve Pestrock & Craig Walker.

I'm going to let the pictures do the talking for this one.
But let me say that Grace and Daniel are as beautiful as Barbados. And wonderful people with loving families.
We started Friday night with rehearsal dinner on catamarans for 100 guests. Saturday ceremony & Sunday we got together for photos on the beach. This is one I'll never forget.
Thanks, you two.
I know I've already posted from Marian & Brian's wedding - and I'll be posting all the highlights soon - but I'm going to put this here now.
We shot this inside the Fine Arts Library at the University of Pennsylvania. I love it & keep coming back to it. It's like a song I can't get out of my head.

Megan and Jason married at Mountain Springs Lake Resort and I had been looking forward to their wedding since their engagement shoot last fall.
I expected it to be lot of fun.
It was a good time not only for Megan and Jason and their guests but for me and second shooter Dan Moyer as well.
You'll see Dan in these images. He's the one making sure Megan's dress doesn't fall from the tree. Dan's my Dress Ninja.
Thanks for the good times, you two.
