A few weeks ago a group of 10 photographers decided to come together to challenge ourselves, improve our art, and commit to photographing the things in our own lives that we have been neglecting to document. People always say to me, “you must have such amazing pictures of your family”. Truly, I do have some good ones…but I have been missing a lot of beauty along the way. My iPhone is overworked and always filling up while my big camera is stored away until the next big wedding or photoshoot. What I love about this group so far is that each one of us is unique in our style and perspective, even though our lives in pictures look strikingly similar!
So every month on the 10th, 10 photographers will share their best 10 photos from the month. We will be our own clients and meet our own deadline for a change! Excited to see the beauty in the everyday from each of these talented ladies!
Check out these other awesome photographers that are participating in this 2015 challenge. I am truly inspired by them!

This dress. These shoes. Some of my favorites so far. A dress with texture always photographs well.
We can blame it on motherhood. We can blame it on an aversion to staring at a computer screen any longer than I have to. We could even blame it one some deep rebellion I feel when it comes to blogs and social media. But realistically, keeping up with my photography blogging has been the icing that I just haven’t been able to get onto the cake, let alone whip up. Ok, let’s be honest….I don’t even have all the ingredients half the time! (Is it obvious that baby #2 has somehow devoured at good portion of my brain cells?).
So here is my PSA: YES…the last time I blogged about a wedding was 2 years ago (oops!). NO…I haven’t stopped taking pictures! YES…I am still photographing weddings!
I have decided I am going to spend the remainder of 2014 bringing myself, and anyone checking out my photography, up to speed. Additionally, I want desperately to fall in love with the art of photography in a fresh way as I enter another new year. Wedding and family photography can become rote if you let it and I really don’t want to let it. I want my creativity to run wild, not run out. So expect just one or two photos a few times per week perhaps. Expect only my favorites … the ones I go back to look at just to feel inspired. Frankly, I have photographed some really beautiful couples, families, children, and details in the past 2 years and you are missing out if I don’t share. Here we go!

I am so excited to share the photos from this wedding in a “start to finish” kind of way! I love the way these photos share the excitement of a much anticipated wedding day for Paul & Lauren. There were a lot of favorite parts of this wedding day for me….but I think the highlight has to be the dodgeball pictures. Paul & Lauren met during a dodgeball game and I love how we were able to playfully recreate that moment.

I wonder if you will be able to tell how much I love these photos? Hmm…I guess by saying that you already know so I may as well confess: I LOVE THESE PICTURES! Stacy is a friend of mine from physical therapy school at Drexel University. She and Scott make a really, truly, simply beautiful couple. They live in Philadelphia and wanted photos at all different spots in the city. I can’t get over how much they love each other and I was only in their lives for one day (albeit a very important day!).
Their love for each other was closely matched by the love this bridal party had for its bride and groom!
