Melissa and Jim!

Love it!

On the way home...

I sometimes wish I had a camera in my eyes somehow so I can capture what I see all the time. Since that is not possible I am just trying to take more pictures of random things I see around me. On the way home from a recent engagement session I passed by this horse, and knew I would regret it if I didn't take a picture.

A bit of advice

When taking these romantic "from above" shots...

... don't fall on your clients. hehe.


I still have a couple spots for a December 12th boudoir session in Philadelphia!

Also there is a *new* boudoir announcement coming VERY soon!!!

Photo of the Day

At Corinna and Joe's wedding I really liked these wall sconces and I immediately wanted to create a funky moody image with the bride and groom underneath one of them.

I was able to steal them away for a minute between dances and I'm so glad I did!

Pushing Daisies!!!

For the love of all that is whimsical watch Pushing Daisies tonight!!!

8 p.m. on ABC

Even though I think the ratings system is TOTALLY outdated with everyone watching shows online, DVR or just buying the seasons when they're done, Pushing Daisies is in danger of being cancelled due to low ratings!

Several things can be done to "help" - the quickest and easiest is to contact ABC and tell them not to cancel the show, and to tell your friends to watch the show, post about it on your blogs, facebook and myspace and also pick up Season 1 on DVD!

2 quick things -

- I got an email today from site management reminding everyone that candles are not allowed in the building - oops!

- I left a note in the door of where I THINK the owner lives, of the little dog that got hit, left my phone number and email, hopefully someone will let me know if the dog is ok :(

Photo of the Day


I just blew out a candle in my office and set off the fire alarm in the whole building


And the outside looks like this - so everyone was thankful that it was a false alarm

*EDIT* everyone except the fire department who showed up about 5 minutes later and came in my office to question me and investigate the candle in question.

I guess no Phillies game tonight, huh?

Carmela and Dave - Engagement in Doylestown

Carmela and Dave met me for a beer at a pub in town and we chatted a bit, then went out and frolicked around Doylestown. We had a good time and the fall colors are just amazing. What a fun couple! I can't wait to photograph their wedding next November!

I love how engagement sessions give me a chance to get to know the couple a little better. I think it really helps the bride and groom to feel more comfortable on the wedding day.

Sadness at the Expo

I saw a dog get hit by a car this morning :(

This morning before leaving for NYC I took my dog out for a walk and this little dog decided to dart across the street to say hello to my dog, and got ran over! It happened right in front of me and was just terrible!

I ran my dog back inside and ran back out to help... called the vet down the street and the dog was taken there and then I called the vet later on to see what was going on and found out the dog was alive but in critical condition and was being taken to another facility.

Ugh not a good way to start the day, not at all. Hopefully the little guy will pull through. I'm going to try to find out more tomorrow :(

And so I was a sad sad panda all the way to New York City where I met up with a photographer friend of mine at the Photo Expo and we checked out a bunch of the exhibits and I have to say there are some really cool albums and lighting equipment that I am definitely looking into, it was a great trip, just wish the day didn't start out so grim :(

More Starlets!

I am currently working on a bunch of weddings, engagements, and boudoir sessions, so it will be a couple more weeks before I have all of the Starlet Sessions finished but here is another sneak peak. Once I'm finished with them all, each girl will receive a "pinup" style book!

We are going to start planning the next Starlet Session soon for the spring. Now that we know exactly what works and what doesn't, and have asked for suggestions on what to improve for the next one - the spring sessions will be even better, bigger, more pinup, more everything. I can't wait! Of course details will be posted once they are firmed up, and the Mailing List will have first dibs so be sure to join!

New Studio Samples!

This is always exciting! I have a new album to show and also new companion albums - small 'clones' of the main album, they are so cool!

I love the custom photo covers, and all the pages are thick and sturdy. The main album is sized 10x10 and is also available in 12x12, and the companion albums are available in 9x9, 7.5x7.5, 6x6, and 4x4 and they make great gifts for parents, grandparents and anyone else who wants a little brag book to carry around to show everyone how fabulous your wedding was!!

Angela and Joe's wedding video

This was shot by Chris from Xposed Film

What a beautiful video, great song, awesome editing, and Chris was great to work with, so I definitely highly recommend him!

If you're one of those people (like me) that gets teary-eyed while watching complete strangers' wedding videos, you'll love this.

And a couple photos from their beautiful Congress Hall reception.

Laura and Joshua - NYC Engagement

Oh how I love New York City. I met Laura and Josh at Penn Station and we made our way to Times Square which was so crowded and full of energy and fun! This couple spent a lot of time in NYC and live close to there so photos in the city meant a lot to them - and it gave me an excuse to go there which is always welcome!

A few photos

I'm off to NYC to photograph Laura and Josh's engagement! So I leave you with a few teasers from the past few weeks. SO many more photos to come next week!

Engagements galore

October is definitely the month for engagement sessions.

I already had a bunch this month, and now I'm leaving in about an hour to go to Philadelphia for an engagement session, then one in NYC on Sunday (can't wait!), then one here in Doylestown on Monday, and New Hope on Friday - whew!

It is so beautiful out right now it's definitely the perfect weather and October just seems to have amazing lighting all the time.

I will be out of the office starting this afternoon, for the next few days (wedding Saturday, engagements galore, etc) but I'll return on Monday!

Laura and Brandon - Engagement in Medford, NJ

Laura and Brandon were visiting from Indiana and I was so happy that we had such nice weather and amazing fall colors for their engagement session. Can't wait till their wedding next August!

At one point this little cat wrapped himself around my feet. Too cute.

And on the way home I passed this field, and I had to stop and take a picture
