happily ever after

M + B | Philadelphia Waterworks Wedding + 1st Anniversary Old City Photowalk

I met this incredibly sweet and damn, photogenic couple last summer. Crazy heat and crazy in love. That’s how I remember that day. They got married around noon, the sun was high and so were Maryam’s heels…. But we braved the heat and all the inconveniences and had one of the most amazing photowalks around Philly. Apparently, Philadelphia means a lot to these lovebirds. When they asked me to photograph them again this year after falling In love with their wedding photos, they told me they wanted “a lot of Philadelphia” in their pictures.

So this is the outcome of our cool photosession with two cool people, who are so into each other, photography, technology, nature and travelling. They were leaving Philadelphia shortly after our session to have a second marriage ceremony and celebration with their loved ones in their hometown. I am happy they now have all this to enjoy memories of the lovely city that united them.

May + Ali | Morris Arboretum | Philadelphia Wedding

May and Ali is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful couples I've ever seen. Remember me saying that my couples are from the movies? Well, yes, they are, and these guys just proved it one more time. They got married at the Islamic Society of Valley Forge on Friday, July 14, and threw a wonderful party for families and friends at gorgeous Morris Arboretum the next day. Morris is another love from first sight. I am lucky to live just 15 minutes from this beautiful garden, which makes it one of my favorite spots for photo sessions, whether it's an engagement session,family portraits or a maternity photo shoot. Morris Arboretum is different every time you visit! Magnificent cherry blossoms in spring, bright and blooming in summer, and soothing and charming in fall. Perfect location for any photo project :)  

First time we met with May and Ali ( and bride's lovely family) on a snowy, but cozy day in January, in my favorite Chestnut Hill. I remember I said to myself : how cute, her parents came here to meet me too! What a little but powerful sign of parents' love, appreciation and care about their daughter. I always remind my couples that their wedding day is one of the most important days of their lives, not only for them, but for their parents! This is the day they've been waiting for, nothing brings them more happiness than seeing their kids happy and in love.  May and Ali were the cutest, there was that tender energy between them that is so difficult to describe. They are like rose and water. Complete each other, compliment each other, look like a ONE.

It was incredibly hot on their wedding day. Incredibly great, bubbly, loud, emotional and beautiful. May looked absolutely stunning in her incredible dress she decorated with beads by herself. She was radiating elegance, rays of happiness and tender grace. Eileen did a wonderful job with May's make up, she looked perfect till the end of reception, which lasted till late, I must admit :) 

I am so very lucky to know these two beautiful souls and preserve the memories forever. It was an emotional day for everyone around – something that I as a photographer love to capture. The combination of vulnerability, emotions, tears, warm hugs and crazy dances and a completely unique day led to some of my favorite photos that I am now honored to share with the world.

Kim + Jason | Artesano Gallery | Philadelphia Wedding

The moment we met with Kim and Jason I knew their wedding day is going to be special. They love wine, live in Manayunk, going to Barcelona for their honeymoon... could there be more coincidences? ;) The way the treated each other, their relationship, all the energy, love and effort they put into planning their big day and the fact that they did their best for their guests to have fun and celebrate love and life - that says it all.  When we were saying goodbye to each other after our initial consult, Kim told me she needed to finish the table invitations she was making from wine corks. I smiled. I still smile today when I think about it.

I can't express how amazed I was by the incredible venue Kim and Jason chose for their wedding. ARTesano Gallery is for lovers. Unique venue with incredible atmosphere, amazing stuff, great food, outlandish lighting located in the heart of vibrant Manayunk makes a wedding day a dream!

It was a pleasure to celebrate wit you guys! I enjoyed it so much. Now it's time to enjoy these memories.
