Rebecca really cares about the type of pictures you want. She listens, is eager to meet with you, discuss ideas and produce the pictures that you want. She is a hard worker, easy to get in touch with and gets your pictures fast. We were on our honeymoon when our first pictures were available on her blog! t I would never have traded choosing Rebecca Barger Photography for the world! My wedding day was incredible and she captured that. Thank you, Rebecca! ~Erica & Jeffrey
Erica works at MAC cosmetics in NYC, so her hair and make-up choices were exceptionally important to her. Bridesmaid Tania Gauthier is not just a BFF but a hair stylist at Swank Hair Salon in Manhattan. Patrick Eichler, another dear friend, was in charge of Erica’s make-up, he previously worked at MAC.
Both Erica & Jeffrey prepared at The Downtown Marriott in Philadelphia. When the bride and groom prepare at the same location and do not care to see each other beforehand, this makes it easier for us to be able to photograph each of them prior to the ceremony. One photographer can stay with the bride, and the other can visit the groom.
Jeffrey relaxes for a moment prior to the ceremony. Floral design by Peri Petals, in Turnersville, NJ and can be reached at 856-589-5875.
