Keeley + Logan

From the day I fell in love with photography, I would see the world through black and white film. Almost every image I create has the capability of transcendence when all that remains are the lights and shadows in monochromatic beauty. I've been hesitant to share a full wedding post in all black and white wondering who may not understand why. But I knew of all my weddings, Keeley would truly appreciate this; her being a fellow photographer and former college classmate.

So here I present to you, her wedding in Black and White! All of the beauty is held in the shapes and textures, light and dark; not how green the grass or blue the sky is, but in each pure moment.

Baby Rita

Shamefully, over a year has passed since my last blog post. I suppose that's what happens when you have a baby of your own. But I felt compelled to pick back up my momentum with this insanely adorable lifestyle newborn portrait session. Baby Rita was only a week old to the day for this session and she was such a wonderful little model. Her energetic brother kept me on my toes and I captured some candid portraits of him as well but Rita stole the show! With her beautiful head of hair and rare but infectious smile... who couldn't totally fall in love!

Kristen + Matt

From their engagement session I knew these two would be a blast to photograph on their wedding. Boy did I underestimate that! From their adorable first sight to the energetic nonstop dance party, I was never lacking a moment to document. It was a blast and a complete honor to be involved in their wedding day!

Holly + Dave

Before I became the photographer I am today, my past careers have been quite all over the place. One of my favorites though was working at Rita's Water Ice in South Philly. It was there that I met a group of friends that helped get me through the awkward phase of not knowing anyone after having just moved to South Philly. Holly was one of those amazing friends that I am so happy I have reconnected with! She was and of course still is a beautiful girl with a great smile and warm personality. I was so honored she asked me to photograph her engagement to her amazing fiance Dave. They are a perfect match and we had a great time wandering around the WaterWorks!

Big brother to-be

From when he was just a tiny 6 month old, I have been photographing Nicholas. Now 3 years old, he is preparing to be a big brother! He loves his mom and dad and loves even more having all of the attention. But the more I talked to him, the more I hear how excited he is to take on the role of being a big brother. From checking his mommy's tummy to giving her a rose and a kiss because "mommy's beautiful"; Nicholas is ready to show his new baby brother or sister just how to win the hearts of everyone around.

Zoe Miller

I would never venture to call myself an expert in photographing newborns. But when you get to photograph the newborn baby of your friends, you know you can experiment and get creative. Zoe was awake for way more of the session than we anticipated but she was such a great sport. Especially when we surrounded her with flowers, or when we continuously attempted to have her balance her head on her cute little hands.  Hopefully she doesn't grow up to hate me since she is stuck with me as her photographer forever.

Ano and Mila

To say I have the best job in the world is an understatement. I have had the amazing pleasure of photographing Kristiano since he was just a tiny big eyed baby. He has been a photographer's gem of a model from then on. Three years later, my little guy is now a big brother! Mila, now a year old, has her brother's eyes and her very own personality. She is full of love and laughter and the sweetest smiles. It's incredible to say that part of my job is to document these two munchkins as they grow.

Brandy + Kevin

Despite the freezing cold air and snow on the ground, Brandy and Kevin tied the knot in the cozy, rustic, 2nd floor room at the Northbrook Market Place. The low hanging ceilings and solid wood rafters draped in string lights and handmade nuances, made for a beautiful and quaint ceremony. Brandy's light purple wedding dress perfectly accompanied the laid-back, no-nonsense feeling of their special day. Add in a comfort food filled buffet, famous apple cider doughnuts and a ton of friends and family tearing up the dance floor; and I say you have one successful stress free wedding! Congratulations to you both!

Small Business Saturday!

Sometimes what "small business" means to people are higher prices than the retail Giants out there. But what it really means is that you can work one-on-one with someone who will remember your name and care about what you want and what you were looking for. They will remember your name and your kids' names, they will remember what you love every time you walk in the door. Today's the day we help those small businesses out by shopping with them for our holiday gifts! Support the businesses that are family oriented and not the businesses that opened up on 4 PM on Thanksgiving to pull people away from their families all for the sake of making even more money. Shop with the people who are honest about their prices and not the ones who hike them up just to tell you it's 30% off for one day only.

In honor of small business Saturday email hello@littlebluebox.photo for 30% off of gift certificates... now until December 31st. Give it as a gift for a family photo, a beautiful senior portrait, or even towards a wedding! Gift certificates never expire and are good for sessions or Beautiful prints, canvases or framing.

The gift of memories encapsulated in a photograph is a gift that lasts a lifetime!

Ashley + Todd

Ashley and Todd tied the knot on a beautiful but chilly November day. I was so happy to be asked to photograph her wedding since 2 years prior I had the opportunity to photograph her Matron of Honor's wedding! It meant so much to be asked back for another amazing family event.

Despite the warmest of thoughts, we retired our outdoor photos to the stunning interior of The Park Savoy Estate in NJ. It's vintage throwback to the romantic 20's is the perfect backdrop for a bride and groom's portraits. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Danielle & Clint + One

It's hard to put into words how much my friends mean to me. When they ask me to photograph for them to document a very special moment in their lives, it's an honor I can't describe. So when Danielle and Clint, who I have known for years, ask me to photograph them for the first time I was so excited and even nervous! It's been over 3 years since this couple tied the knot and I have been secretly anticipating this moment... They are expecting a baby!

So we walked around my absolutely favorite spot in Lansdale, the abandoned freight station, and had so much fun together. We laughed and shivered and I photographed way more images than I would have expected. But just look at them?! Cute, photogenic and glowing with anticipation. I love these two and can't wait for little baby Zoey!! Coming February 2015...

Tiffany + Josh

"We're all mad here..."

Tiffany and Josh's wedding was filled with tons of subtle nuances to perfectly compliment their Mad Hatter theme. Feathers and pastels along with strong purples and hand crafted decor made the most personalized and festively fun wedding!

100% of the decorations were painstakingly designed and set up by Tiffany and her amazing bridal party and family. Tiffany's brooch bouquet was made up of bridal shower gifts and assembled by her matron of honor Kris Yablonski.
