The Bellevue Philadelphia Wedding Preparations of Kait + JohnPhiladelphia Wedding Photographer

It’s been several years since I photographed a wedding at The Bellevue Philadelphia and and I was so excited to return. This beautiful historic venue made a perfect backdrop for Kait and John’s perfectly classic and stylish wedding. The most touching part of Kait’s preparations was when I learned the grooms mother have made Kait’s wedding dress and veil. Her gown was beautiful, perfectly fitting and a true act of love. After Kait’s preparation at The Bellevue Philadelphia she departed with her father in a vintage Rolls Royce to her ceremony at Saint Agatha & Saint James Church.

Food Photography at Storico NYCNew York Food Photographer

My second favorite type of photography is food photography. I have a passion for eating and cooking food and I love the opportunity to find the enticing beauty in photographing food. I was fortunate to be asked to photograph the menu of Storico operated by Starr Catering Group. This tasty restaurant is located  in the New York Historical Society Museum on the upper west side.  Their Italian inspired offerings were very impressive and I can vouch that they tasted as good as they look.

Cedar Lakes Estate Wedding Reception of Haley + DavidNew York Wedding Photographer

How about cocktails around the pool? What a weekend. Definitely one of my favorite place card tables this year by Nancy Saam Flowers. How perfect; flowers suspended from a tree branch with vintage wooden crates to hold the cards. Very creative presentation for this rustic setting. Then I entered the “barn”, and oh what a barn it was. The decour was a perfect mix of chic rustic and luxury floral. The fun when on all evening with dancing to the great music of Faze 4 Orchestra  .  I truly loved my weekend in the country this summer, as did all of Haley and David’s guests!Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-37 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-38 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-39 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-40 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-41 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-42 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-44 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-46 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-43 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-45 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-48 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-49 Cedar-Lake-Estate-Wedding-47Planner: Jennifer Supper of Kaleidoscope Weddings
