Kelly + Brian at Skytop Lodge

Kelly + Brian gathered their friends + family at the elegant Skytop Lodge for a spring wedding. We took advantage of the nice temperatures and traversed the trail towards Indian Ladder Falls, for some shrouded tree photo locations after a "first look" on the south porch. The perfectly lit lobby was our family group photo area.

The patio marriage ceremony was set in the Formal Garden against the porch backdrop among a plethora of tulips on all sides. Cocktails followed on the Evergreen patio outside the ballroom. DJ Marquis from Philadelphia orchestrated the festivities, before during and after a great dinner with toasts and various dances. 


Dorunda Party of Two for The Barn at Glistening Pond


When Tia was five years old her father hired me to photograph her at his home. Upon setting up all the lighting in front of her rocking horse, Tia got on the horse she said, "do you want me to look mysterious?"

Flash to the next scene, her wedding. Here we are at the new Barn at Glistening Pond nestled in the hills near Lake Winola close to Falls, PA. A perfect sky set the backdrop for an intimate first look with the couple. We created all the family portraits and various other groups prior to the ceremony so everyone could enjoy a smooth transtion from the ceremony to the cocktail hour withour stepping away. Once the reception began we noticed a perfect sunset and took advantage of the glistening pond as a backdrop.

On A Clear (Scranton) Day

Through my work I encounter countless unique and engaging individuals - all of whom contribute to dynamic and creative visions from which my photography can create a foundation. Through the narrative of each person's special day characters emerge - the elated grandmother, the playful children darting across a crowded church, the friends old and new. However, one character that deftly comes to the forefront time and time again is Scranton itself. The beauty (simple and complex) that can be found throughout this region never ceases to astound. This small collection highlights various notable locales / landmarks throughout the greater Scranton area, all of which added to the aesthetic that these photographs convey.

We (as humans) connect with our surroundings in ways that words cannot always fully articulate. The textures, shadows and colors of our environment hold a conversation all to themselves - one that I am most grateful to have a part of.
