naomi + matt {wedding}

i have been *dying* to show you guys this wedding! naomi has such wonderful style, and i think i could have easily cloned myself into her wedding as a bride and been completely happy.  matt and naomi went through all the trouble to fly me to PA  to shoot their fabulous wedding.  Having never met the two i couldn’t have felt more blessed to be a part of their special day…their families and friends were the best and welcomed jim and me in as their own. *hi friends and family!!*  i hope you all enjoy their wedding as much as i do :).

such a gorgeous dress!!

my husband has some skills…he’s responsible for shooting the image above, AND this image below!

i could shoot at Greystone Hall nearly every weekend and not get tired of it.  It is the most beautiful wedding venue!

thank you matt and naomi!!

    Charlene - WOW!!! I am soo jealous!!! My girlfriend Sabrina, who I haven’t seen in ages, was just in your recent wedding shown here. I wish I had seen your work before, I would have flown you to Philly! Our photographer had a family emergency a week before our wedding and had to bail, we got his backup (who did a nice job, but adjusted the color wrong and all the pictures show our girls in “purple” and NOT the blue lapis color they were actually wearing). It’s strange to watch our wedding video and know that it shows the true colors vs. the wedding album that everyone looks at. Ugh. Anyway, if you are ever in Philly, shoot me an email, I’d love to meet you! -Charlene

    Kate - Any chance Naomi would tell us who that dress is by? Wow. These images are stunning. I’m having a little wedding photography envy and wishing I’d found you a year ago before I got married.
