{Married} Natalie + Scott’s Elegant Wedding at Parque at Hunting Hill Mansion | Ridley Creek, Newtown Square, PA + Main Line Wedding Photographer

This past weekend was quite busy here shooting two beautiful back-to-back weddings, all the while meeting some truly incredible people. Today’s post is for Natalie and Scott, whom I’ve gotten to know quite well over the past year. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph their “season sessions” starting about 1 year ago from this time; one session for each season before their wedding.  They have such a sweet love story and I felt so honored to watch their love grow even more over the last year and then to finally witness all the support and kind wishes they had pouring in from their family and friends. Such a unique  experience for me as a wedding photographer where I typically spend only a short amount of time with a couple before their wedding day.

Natalie and Scott’s entire wedding day took place at the stately Parque at Hunting Hill Mansion in Ridley Creek State Park. They both got ready in Parque’s on-location bridal party suites, both spaces featuring uniquely antique details throughout. Natalie’s talented hair and makeup team of La Sposa Philly truly did an incredible job on the girls. They all looked stunning. And the men were as handsome as ever. Natalie and Scott exchanged beautifully written letters before the ceremony and had a non-traditional “first look” where they exchanged “I love you’s” from two separate floors without laying eyes on each other. It was a very special and private moment they had indoors as guests trickled into their seats just outside at the ceremony space. Natalie looked stunning as she walked down the aisle to her dearest love, Scott. The ceremony was beautiful and of course I couldn’t help but tear up as they exchanged their vows. We then had the opportunity to shoot portraits on the lovely grounds around the mansion. The reception soon followed, where all details were on point and everything came together perfectly. There were some awesome moves being displayed on that dance floor and East Coast Event Group kept the beat going strong through the night. It was a glorious day! I’ve put together some of my favorite photos below and want to wish Natalie and Scott congratulations again and many years for a happy marriage! Hope you enjoy the photos!

{Family/Beach Portrait Session} Family and Children Portaits at Stone Harbor Beach | MainLine and South Jersey Family, Engagement, Wedding Photographer

As we approach the end of the summer season it’s hard not to reflect on what kind of summer you’ve had. Most times people say how quickly it’s flown, especially if you have little ones. Your days are spent running around to the beach, parks, camps and before you know it school is back in session. There is definitely some appreciation in having that “break” and bringing back some kind of schedule into your day. But it’s also hard not to miss the ocean breeze and warm sun on your skin. This summer I found myself at the beach for a few portrait sessions which was so special for me. I was more than honored to capture some memories for this beautiful family while they vacationed together. This “job” of photographing people is not really a job to me. It never has been. I’ve always been passionate and excited to grab my gear and run off to a shoot. And it’s a special feeling when I get to photograph people that are like family to me. Here are some of my favorite moments from our time together in Stone Harbor ♥️
