Sara & Andrew
May 22, 2009
Philadelphia, Pa.
Ceremony – Colonial Dames
Reception – Park Hyatt Bellevue
Second Shooter – Benjamin Meyers

After getting slapped on the wrist by the blog police for not blogging current weddings, I figured it was time to comply.

Sara and Andrew had a beautiful Philadelphia wedding on May 22. The weather was perfect and the light was almost as beautiful as the bride.

This was a wedding I had been looking forward to for a long time. Sara booked me over a year ago to photograph the event.

Here are a few favorites.

Sara loved the flowered collar Andrew had made for their dog Ty.

The soft colors in this room were gorgeous.

I like shooting tight faces during the vows and ring exchange to capture the range of emotions.
