Wissahickon Couple Session // Nicole & John

At some point there was a joke about Nicole and John murdering me and leaving me in the woods and this was one of my favorite engagement shoots ever.

What a fun, cool couple. I'm truly happy when I get to work with people that I would be friends with outside of working together! These two were as weird as me and we had a great time.

We started the shoot off during their cake tasting at Queen Bee Pastry! Which was really fun. I always love when there's an opportunity to take part of the shoot inside somewhere, especially when it has a lot of natural light! 

We spent the rest of the shoot at the Wissahickon during golden hour, where Nicole and John spend a lot of time together with their pup! 

Passyunk Ave Couple Session // Sarah & Rich

I got to photograph Sarah & Rich's engagement photos at the end of July. We got a lucky break from the heat for this one!

We started at their house and then headed into the city. They are having their June wedding at Bok Bar in South Philadelphia and wanted to do some photos close to their venue.

We hung out around Passyunk, shooting at B2, Barcelona Wine Bar and ended the shoot at The Percy Street Project aka Electric Street.

I caaaaan't wait to work with them next year!!!

Brewerytown Couple Session // Sara & Lucas

HOLY MOLY I LOVE MY JOB. Lucas and Sara were soooo fun. We met at The Monkey & The Elephant in Brewerytown, which has a super cool backyard area. We walked around the area and went to my favorite Philadelphia bridge. I can't wait to photograph their wedding this fall in Maryland!

American Swedish Historical Museum Wedding // Carly & Scott

Seriously, I have the best job.

Carly and Scott were soooo incredible to photograph. Despite the rain, their wedding was so fun that even all of the vendors were dancing (including me)! If you've never worked with me before, I should probably let you know that it's in my contract that you have to play "Come On Eileen" at your reception.

The rain caused a little change in plans because ceremonies at this venue are usually outside. If you've ever been there you know it has a large staircase and once the ceremony starts you pretty much just have to stay planted either upstairs or downstairs. Since the wedding party is ON the stairs it would be absolutely ridiculous to walk up the stairs mid-ceremony, and the elevators make a really loud beeping sound that is equally inappropriate to use mid-ceremony. I'm so grateful that these two hired a second photographer so that my girl Kelly Giarrocco could stay on the top floor to give some diversity to these ceremony shots. I'm thinking of making second shooters a part of all of my packages because really I think it's so incredibly important and makes such a big difference.

This was my second wedding under my own name for this year and I am so happy with these photographs. I am not married, but one of my favorite things to do while shooting a wedding is think about the photos I'd want of my friends and family. I think this one is exactly that!

PS: I could literally shoot every Jeffery A Miller wedding and never get sick of it.
