Sarah and Andrew’s Wedding Day was Picture Perfect
I had the fortunate opportunity to be selected to capture Sarah and Andrew’s wedding. While I am a Montgomery County Maryland based wedding photographer and traditionally hired to photograph weddings in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia, often referred to as the DMV, I hit the road for a location in Pennsylvania. You could not have asked for a more perfect day or location for this wedding. The wedding ceremony and reception took place at the Columbia Station in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. Robert Ryan Catering and the Columbia Station even featured photos from the wedding on the website. The Columbia Station is a converted railroad station located in this quaint Pennsylvania town. The ceremony took place on a grassy knoll located on the property that was situated between a historic caboose used as the bridal suite and a beautiful stone wall with exquisite landscaping. Sarah, Andrew, and the entire wedding party were awesome. As a wedding photographer, I like to use my creative eye to scope out unique areas for the bride and groom’s first look and special moments photos. This venue provided an abundance of creative photos.
After the ceremony, we all went into the reception that was equally elegant. The lighting, a moving gobo on the wall added a special flare to the room and the centerpieces consisted of lanterns with flowers and LED lights illuminating each table. The DJ was great and able to keep the energy high throughout the evening. As a professional wedding photographer, I invest and utilize lighting that brings out the best in the event. This is accomplished with photographic strobe lights strategically positioned in room that are controlled and triggered from my camera. My assistant knows where to be at any given moment with an additional portable photographic strobe that adds dimension and pop to all of the photos. This is a far better approach than just using an on camera flash. The results are clearly more dynamic and professional. It takes more equipment and staff to implement this type of lighting and coverage but it is well worth it.
I hope I have the opportunity to travel out of town in the future for another awesome wedding. I would love to be commissioned to photograph a wedding in Nashville, Tennessee and New York City. Fingers crossed!
