Fleisher Art Memorial Wedding | Jackson + Maxine

I thought I’ve seen everything….. but never ever had I seen a bridal party like this. My tears didn’t dry on their own… for like 5 minutes… it took 3 bridesmaids and the warmest strongest hug to make me look normal again :) These people = magic. Pure magic.
As for Jackson and Maxine…. they were absolutely stunning, on top of being the kindest, hard working, nicest people.Just look in their eyes, it’s all there. Crazy to think if I hadn’t noticed Jackson’s post in a local Mt Airy group that he opened a Martial Arts Studio 5 minutes from home and hadn’t gotten in touch last February, we might have not had a chance to work together.

Maxine’s beauty, Jackson’s awesome outfit, their baby dog as a ringbearer, Mariachi band and coolest Fleisher art Memorial that they chose as their venue - all these details made the day unforgettable. Looking at their gallery now, I can surely say that it couldn’t be a better match with any other couple full of soul and warmth and (not to brag) I don’t think any other photographer would be able to capture all those moments I captured for them and their families. Every. single.photo is a work of art and brings joy and smiles. I know it’s all they’ve ever wanted and beyond everything that I envisioned. My photojournalistic style that I developed from day one just bloomed into something extraordinary that day.

Photography is not about cameras…or lenses…or flashes. Photography is about heart and soul.

I am fascinated and so so so grateful for documenting this day for M&J.

Adventure Aquarium Surprise Proposal | Camden Waterfront & Race St Pier Engagement

Prem surprised Sarah with a shiny heart shaped ring and VIP tour around Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. The coolest part of this afternoon: divers with the sweetest sign “Will you marry me?”…. and Sarah’s reaction of course! :)

Congratulations on your engagement!

Thank you to Aquarium’s staff for being super caring and helpful.


Maritime Parc Wedding | Jersey City | Francesca + Louis

This gorgeous winter wedding at Maritime Parc was the last wedding for me in season 2018. I don't know how I got so lucky to work with international brides recently (see my Polish princess here- https://www.innaovsepian.com/blog/2018/10/16/peter-shields-inn-wedding-cape-may-nj-marley-sam ), but here goes another magic story:)

We met with Francesca and Louis in Princeton back in November to discuss their wedding plans. They literally put the whole thing together in record time! Francesca's beautiful and loud (that we would find out later, when they started singing during reception;) family struck me with their openness, candid smiles and so much joy and merriness that they were radiating. The way they all gathered together during ceremony to be able to hear Francesca's brother Rocco translation was just so sweet! Dances melted my heart. Manhattan views took our breath away. The day could not be any better. Maritime Parc and their staff added their top notch service, charm and impeccable hospitality. Their whole team along with amazing views made our day truly unforgettable.

Congratulations Francesca and Louis, enjoy the memories!


Adelphia Wedding | Ravi +Liz

Ravi and Liz tied the knot on the first day of December at beautiful Adelphia in Deptford, New Jersey. They exchanged gifts beforehand and opted out of first look which means Ravi saw his beautiful bride for the first time when she was graciously walking down the aisle. His reaction is one of the sweetest we’ve seen. Happy tears, prayers, Indian ceremony ( can’t stop looking at their breathtaking traditional outfits!), DJ BRIDE, Eagles cake as a groom’s cake, sparkling sneakers instead of high heels, bomb bridal party and dances non- stop - just some of our favorite highlights of the party.

Enjoy the memories!

Everly at Railroad + Ocean City Engagement | Dana + Mike

While Philly was dealing with snowy surprise I escaped to Tuckahoe and Ocean City to spend an amazing afternoon with Dana and Mike for their engagement session. We started the day at whimsical Everly at Railroad and later made our way to Ocean City. The weather could not be any better. My favorite parts of the day : guys taking Polaroid photos of each other ( how sweet!), wine on the beach, emotions, happy smiles and the fact that Mike was ready to sacrifice the Eagles game for this session ;)

Enjoy these memories :) Can’t wait to capture more soul photos on your wedding day!

Thank you for this beautiful day.



Greate Bay Country Club Wedding | Somers Point, NJ | Joe + Renny

You ever meet your bride and groom for the first time and they strike you with their calm energy, courtesy, manners and beauty? That's what I immediately thought of Joe and Renny when we exchanged hugs at Greate Bay Country Club.

Oh and their families are so wonderful! Great speeches! Amazing moments shared together. Asians surely do know how to party and I love it ;) We got so many awesome photos from their reception, especially from the dance floor.

I'm very grateful to this wonderful couple for letting us experiment and being up to anything. That's how magic is created! Mutual efforts of great talented photographers and adventurous clients. Also, Joe wanted to get on the website so here you go guys!!! :)

Enjoy the memories, I am so glad I got to celebrate the day with you.



Peter Shields Inn Wedding | Cape May NJ | Marley + Sam

Marley and Sam…

You are the most wonderful, whimsical and unique couple I've ever seen. You proved that long distance relationship can lead to something special and so magical! You are so strong,so open, so real and so nice. Working with your families was such a dream!

Marley and Sam surprised everyone with a movie they created for their parents and family members. The movie tells the story and dynamics of their relationship along with gratitudes and lessons life taught them over the years.

We had such an extraordinary day… from gloomy rainy morning to a beautiful blue sky with amazing clouds,breeze and warm sun. We could not believe it. Even weather was cooperating ;)

The day started with a beautiful Intimate ceremony on the steps of Peter Shields Inn in Cape May, NJ. What a gorgeous venue! Decor, details, lots of white color, location - unbelievable match for a boho wedding with a hint of classics. ( exactly the way Marley planned it).

The most remarkable thing about their wedding is that they made us all cry. The whole room was filled with so much warmth, love, and happy tears. Their fairytale proves that miracles happen. We just got to want it so so bad and work very hard towards our happiness. Universe will handle everything else.

Atlantic ocean, Polish songs, family performance of Hallelujah on grand piano and video that's better than any speeches or toasts I've ever seen or heard. Thank you for letting my team to be with you on this special day. Cheers to the best day ever!

Surprise Proposal at Morris Arboretum | Philadelphia Engagement

morris arboretum proposal.jpg

She said yes!

👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨Fresh! She said yes!!! Saturday morning in misty Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania :) The sweeeeetest couple ever! The way Brianna looks at Joe blows my mind 💍😍🤗
#surpriseproposal #shesaidyes #FutureMrsKnellinger

The funniest part is that obviously Brianna didn’t have a clue while Joe coordinated every detail with me. On the day of proposal Morris Arboretum was crowded so we had to take a shuttle to the upper level. What do you think? Of course we happened to be on the same bus and Joe and I had to pretend nothing was happening. It was drizzling and they finally walked to Rose Garden when Joe got on his knee and asked Brianna to marry him. She had the sweetest reaction ever. You know the rest :) Tons of questions, from how he picked the best ring to who else knows….

They have been together for a few years and share so much together. Their little baby princess is so!!! adorable. We jokingly mentioned that she might be a flower girl for their wedding in a couple years from now :) I am so happy that I met these young, beautiful, candid lovebirds.

Happy engagement! Can’t wait to capture your emotions on your wedding day.

Jessica + James | Backyard Wedding in Ambler

Jessica and James. Oh my.... you set that night on fire. The outpour of emotions, love, loyalty, passion, unitedness that was concentrated in the air is insane. That feeling of a " WHOLE" when the whole family gathers together for a celebration… that's probably what left the biggest impression on me. You went so above and beyond to make this celebration beautiful and provide for your guests. You made it yours, the way only you could do. It was so "homie", but at the same time so grandiose in its own way. Gorgeous grounds generously provided by your friends just made it even more unique and added some extra honey to already sweet wedding day. Everything was top notch- food, flowers, amazing live band, heartwarming speeches.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your sweetest moments and showing me how deeply you care, love, and affect those who are around you.

:)

You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

You're as sweet as strawberry wine

You're as warm as a glass of brandy

And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time...
