Loews Hotel Phila. Wedding

Kiera and Mark celebrated their wedding at  Loews Hotel, in the very room they met at in 2012. Kiera went to Penn Charter and Mark went to Germantown Academy, their paths were bound to cross sooner or later!  It was fun to capture their proposal (scroll down) and then shoot their wedding day!  Thank you Seeds of Celebration for helping coordinate such an organized wedding day.

Rebecca, I know I speak for my whole family (now including Mark!!) when I say, you have been with the family a lot over the last two years and have been a part of major life events and you have documented them in a way that no one us could have even ever imagined.  You allow us to relive our favorite days in the most special way!   These photos are beyond any expectations we had.  I love them and cannot thank you enough for being a part of the day.  Couldn’t have imagined our engagement day or wedding day without you as our photographer.  These are absolutely amazing and I cannot stop looking at them. Thank you for everything.   ~Kiera

Philadelphia Cricket Club, Proud to Plan, Petals Lane

I received a phone call at 1:00 on a Saturday with news that no couple want to hear! Their wedding photographer had cancelled at the last minute.  The bride was already in her gown and the preparation festivities were nearly completed.   I cancelled my Saturday night date, pulled my hair into a pony tail and was on location shooting within one hour.  Special thanks to Proud to Plan for pulling it all together!  Being a photojournalist for The Philadelphia Inquirer was  great training for emergencies.  I was so happy  to help out such a nice couple, Liz and Gavin and here they are on their wedding day!  Thank goodness they have professional photos!

We cannot thank you enough, Rebecca!  The pictures look beautiful! Great to get a preview of what’s to come! Thank you!! ~Liz and Gavin
