As those little rugrats* in Walt Disney World always say, “it’s a small, small world.” When Jennifer first contacted me a few months ago to inquire about shooting her wedding, I had assumed she found me through mutual friends. After all, we went to the same high school, our dads grew up in the same neighborhood in South Philly, and she used to play with my brother when they were kids! But alas, it was thanks to the good old internet that we were brought together (it didn’t hurt that she recognized some of the people in the photos on my web site!).
I am SO excited about Jen and Justin’s wedding next year. They are such a fun, silly couple and we had a really great time getting to all know each other at their engagement shoot in Society Hill. For more photos, check out the video!

When I was a kid, I hated the beach. What kid hates the beach? Me, that’s who. We would spend summer vacations in Wildwood, NJ, and we always had to stay somewhere with a pool because I was such a big baby about going to the beach.

Flash forward to adulthood…and I LOVE it. What the heck was wrong with me?? It’s so nice to be away from the city, relaxing on the beach, drink and magazine in hand and not keeping track of time. Though I have to admit, I still do not LOVE being in the water and not seeing which marine creatures are about to bite my toes off…
I was down at the Jersey shore (no, not the one with Snooki and The Situation) a couple of weekends ago and scheduled some family portrait sessions in Cape May and Ocean City – yet another reason to love it. Next year I will definitely be dedicating more time to beach sessions…just another excuse to get down to the shore!
Here are some shots from the beach sessions – a few even ended up taking a dip!
