Mr + Mrs. Kenniston, amazingly sweet, amazingly in love

2 years ago I met Emily…she asked me to shoot her wedding and I was excited, for one, I knew that she would make an amazing bride and secondly, I knew that the love she and Dillon have for one another is of the purest kind. To have been an eye witness of their joining together was not only an honor, but a responsibility. I wanted to make sure that the images captured the love they have for each other… Take a look and see for yourself…

Garden Tea Party at the Arboretum

I am completely in love with this session featured in the July 2014 issue of Berks County Living . Elaine Fioravanti of bestdressedginger.com was inspired by a Henry Clarke image from a Vogue shoot circa 1960. That was the start of the styling soiree that evolved into this beautiful tea party.  The Reading Museum and Arboretum was the backdrop to our shoot.  Many thanks to the following vendors that contributed to this shoot: The GGS Hat and Gloves Tea Room , Dandelion, Bella Jules, Bell TowerAdy Cakes Vintage Lace and Table.

Enjoy the portraits:)
