Elegant and Classic Philadelphia Bash

Kim and Larry started our year off with a surprise and a bang. Larry called about 3 weeks before their wedding in a semi-panic, their photographer, a friend, was injured and wouldn’t be able to photograph the wedding and he needed to find a photographer, FAST. It turns out I was available, it is March in Philly afterall, so we all kicked into gear and everything went off without a hitch. The ceremony was held in the Historic Landmark Old St. Joseph’s Church in the Old City section of Philadelphia where Ben Franklin and all the cool Constitutional stuff is located. The wedding party walked from the church through more old city cobble stone streets including the amazing Second National Bank building that looks like we made a stopover in Greece. The reception was held in the amazing Cescaphe Atrium in the Curtis Center, once the home to Curtis Publishing which published The Saturday Evening Post.

“YOU DID IT!  Unreal Scott, so so good, I knew I had found the best and these photo’s are proof.  You captured the energy and emotion of the day artfully, so perfect.  Bravo Scott, Bravo!” – Larry

Mmmm. Delicious photography. I most especially like the photo of the bride and the groom on the stairs– it is so elegant.

I find the dipping a little bit old and boring but the rest is amazing!!!

Mary Fabian - June 1, 2010 - 3:18 pm

Amazing and beautiful images. I just love the way you captured so many emotions through candid photos.

Dorothy Isber Photos - July 25, 2010 - 11:52 pm

Majestic and stunning! Love all of your photos!

Luanne France - August 3, 2010 - 5:39 pm

Wow .. just love all the photos — the romance, the fun, the emotions.

Janet Meyers - August 8, 2010 - 8:06 pm

Ditto to Luanne’s comment — you managed to capture so much — every photo tells a story in one great big album. I’m guessing the bride and groom are absolutely delighted with these images. Kudos to you!

My first post on the blog. Stephan & Jo-Marie’s Wedding….

We photographed Stephan & Jo-Marie over the weekend. It was a very hot day in South Africa.
We managed to get some cool images for Stephan & Jo-Marie. They had these little LED’s on the tables for decorations, I decided it would make a cool photo so I raided the tables to get some of them. The heat of the day was broken by a typical summer thunderstorm, I could not resist using the rain. Jo-Marie said she wished it would rain as she loves the ran images I create, well she got her wish. Let me know what you guys think of the images.

Regards.

Isobelle Thornborough - August 8, 2010 - 8:10 pm

Such amazing work, angles — so modern and bold!! Fantastic work!

Emily W-- Tulsa Wedding Photographers - October 26, 2013 - 10:07 pm

Wow, these are so great! Modern, yet vintage. Sexy, yet unrevealed. I absolutely love the personality that is shown through these! Was this part of a wedding session? If not, it’s a neat spin on a bridal session. We’ve always provided a more “standard” approach to bridal sessions for the clients we provide wedding photography services to, but this is certainly inspiration to branch out. Thank you for sharing!

Relive Photography by Laura Parent – Mandarin Oriental Hotel Bermuda at the GORGEOUS Elbow Beach

Relive Photography by Laura Parent – Mandarin Oriental Hotel Bermuda at the GORGEOUS Elbow Beach  — Laura and Justin got married at an exquisite beach front resort http://www.mandarinoriental.com/bermuda/special_occasions/.  I always love going to the islands and just when landing at the airport you can see turquoise water for miles around.  So picture that and the finest softest sandy beach with a pinkish hue to have as a spectacular backdrop while becoming husband and wife.  Laura and Justin did just that!  The day started out looking as though the dark clouds were going to bring a nasty storm our way.   After all it was hurricane season in Bermuda and so it was a definite possibility.  Luck was on our side and proved to be the ideal weather for a beach wedding.

Laura was so beautiful and she wore an antique necklace handed down from her grandmother.  She had been so sweet towards Justin when her dad gave her away.  Before the minister began his ceremony Laura grabbed Justin and gave him a huge hug and kiss.  Then the minister proceeded!    Justin was so in love with Laura and looked at her with pure joy in his eyes.  He was so adorable after the ceremony was over and just kept admiring his wedding band (see attached photos)  so so cute!

The reception was fabulous and everyone had an amazing time dancing and celebrating this perfect union.  I was so happy to have been a part of their day and able to enjoy such a spectacular trip as well.  Congratulations Laura and Justin!

destination wedding in greece

Alex and Karims Mykonos wedding was a perfect family celebration , the gentle winds touched everyone as did the speechs and tears, this was truly a beautiful wedding on Mykonos. The venue was Santa Marina Resort overlooking the Bay of Onos.The Santa Marina resort is surrounded by blue sky and the Aegean Sea. Mykonos is a picture-postcard come to life with its whitewashed churches, windmills, quaint cobbled streets and pristine beaches, this stunningly beautiful resort that captures the very essence of Greece. This place is a wedding photographers dream, I cant wait to go back.
