A late November wedding in Philadelphia and the weather was in the 60s! Not that any cold weather would’ve ruined this day, but I’m not gonna say that I minded..

Friends, get ready for the sweetest/most gorgeous fall wedding. First up, Lauren’s sneaks. Did I mention that I LOVE HER?

Friends, meet the Toccos.

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-10

This adorable little guy is Mikey. It was hard to control myself and not take him home.

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-2

And this smiley dude is Angelo! I have one of these 4 year olds at home, so I was less inclined to take him home.

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-4

Yes, I will let your children throw grass at me if it gets them to smile like this..

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-3

This photo is completely insane which is why I love it.

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-6 moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-9

COME ONNNNNNNN DAAAAADDDDDDD

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-1 moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-12

I couldn’t love these guys any more. They are seriously the sweetest, most adorable family that ever was!

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-11 moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-5

These guys couldn’t stop smiling. I am pretty funny, if I do say so myself.

moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-13 moorestown-new-jersey-family-photographer-14

Ain’t nothing like being a boy mom.

As is the case with most of my clients, Kelly contacted me based on the recommendation from a friend (which, by the way, I am always SO honored that everyone refers me!). And from the moment we talked it was like I was talking to an old friend. I have a feeling that most people say that about Kelly – that you immediately feel like you know her, that she makes you feel comfortable, that she makes you feel important. Kelly is a LIGHT.

I finally met Ryan on the actual wedding day, and MAN is he such a sweetheart. Nicest-most-easy-going-guy-in-the-world award goes to Ryan! It’s like these guys were just made for each other. And so I was so honored to photograph their little family (yes! They have the most beautiful two year old son EVER) as they finally made it official.

First up, that dress. It was magic.

moorestown-community-house-wedding-1 moorestown-community-house-wedding-2

Kelly was either laughing or crying ALL day. I couldn’t get enough.

moorestown-community-house-wedding-4

My lovely second shooter, Joy, was over with the guys. Hiiiiiiiiiii Ryan!

moorestown-community-house-wedding-6 moorestown-community-house-wedding-8 moorestown-community-house-wedding-10

I’m a sucker for those mama shots.

moorestown-community-house-wedding-11 moorestown-community-house-wedding-45

Kelly is smiling, but also on the verge of tears and oh-my-goodness I love it so!

moorestown-community-house-wedding-5 moorestown-community-house-wedding-7 moorestown-community-house-wedding-9

Yes girl, YES.

moorestown-community-house-wedding-44

Yes, this is the cutest thing you’ll see all year. You’re welcome.

Kaitlyn + Eddie – I seriously cannot wait to photograph your beautiful wedding day next year! I had so much fun with you guys and I can’t wait to do it again!

Sooooooo, it’s no secret that I love ALL my clients. I get to have the best time with them on some of the happiest days of their lives. Photographing them always feels like I’m the fun Aunt – ya know the one that sneaks you chocolate and talks to you about all your favorite things? That’s me in photographer mode.

But these guys – THESE GUYS – well, I just love them like something else and that’s cause they’re FAMILY. (Seriously though, Brynn is my husband’s cousin). I love watching Brynn share all about these adorable kids on social media and love that I get to capture them every few years. They are sweet, adorable and funny! Especially that little Luca!

Meet the Primaveras.

The last time I met Saige she was SO shy. She has totally come out of her shell and I loved capturing one of the things she loves most: gymnastics!
