Weddings
I delivered Brittany and Bob's wedding photos on Friday.  
 
Many images I love - I'll blog them soon - but this one has just stuck with me. It's soft and warm and intimate. 
 
Love that.

Fulvia & Irwin's Engagement

Nov 6, 2016
Engagements
Lehigh University keeps on giving. 
 
I'm fortunate to work with many of its graduates and the more I shoot there the more beautiful little nooks I find. Fulvia and Irwin had their first date at the Hawk's Nest & it was fun to get a snap of them kissing over a table there. The recently-renovated Williams Hall (above) was a new spot for me as well. Very graphically intense, moody and gorgeous.  
 
Fulvia and Irwin will marry in the Dominican Republic next year where I'm sure it will be sunny and warm - a perfect balance to a fall engagement shoot at their alma mater.

Rose & Eric's Engagement

Sep 19, 2016
Engagements
Eric's first kiss came in kindergarten; a little girl with pink glasses snuck in a quick peck on his cheek.  
 
That little girl was Rose; two weeks ago I photographed their engagement.  
 
Funny how one thing leads to another. 
 
I will look forward to photographing their wedding in January 2018.

Weddings
I am probably breaking some wedding photography rule. 
 
But I do it nearly every time: Make a portrait of my couple not smiling. 
 
This image is from Dana & Phil's wedding and there are lots of other images of them smiling, laughing & smooching. Those are all good and fun and wonderful. 
 
But there's something about I love about these expressionless images. Maybe the lack of a laugh or smile makes you look deeper into the image. There is an earnestness about it.  
 
Whatever it is I like it. Rules be damned.

Engagements
I had a lot of fun Sunday with Rose & Eric during their engagement shoot.  
 
We started at Lehigh University, then headed to downtown Betlehem and we finished on the Tow Path along the Lehigh River. This is one of my favorites from the shoot. 
 
Sometimes it's about working all the angles--even upside down from above despite your immense fear of heights.  
 
Stay-tuned for more images from Rose and Eric's shoot.
