So, Ryan and I bought a new toy – a drone! Yay! We were so excited to try it out and get some more unique photos for our couples. Leslie and Waleed were kind enough to let us use them to try it out, and I think we got some awesome shots!! Hope you enjoy their Longport Engagement Photography!
The Story of Leslie & Waleed
Leslie and Waleed met one another during their freshman year of high school, and became friends. It wasn’t until Junior year that they started dating, and you could say, the rest is history! They were high school sweethearts whose relationship stayed strong throughout the years that followed!
Back in March, Leslie graduated from Nursing school, so it was time to celebrate! Waleed was taking her out, but being a fisherman, he asked if she wouldn’t mind stopping in Longport to check out the tides. While they were standing on the jetty, Waleed took Leslie by surprise and proposed to her! Of course her answer was yes!
We are beyond excited to capture their wedding at One Atlantic Events next year! OA is one of our favorite venues that just screams beauty, elegance and excitement!
Longport Engagement Photography
What a better place for their engagement session than back in Longport where it all happened?! This might be my new favorite spot, especially for couples who want a jetty and a pretty sunset!! We really lucked out with the most perfect evening!
This is the exact spot that Waleed proposed to Leslie!

We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding to close our our 2019 wedding season! From the moment Renee & Ted asked us to capture this day for them, we’ve been looking forward to it! The florals, the details, the DRESS, the way Ted looked at Renee as she walked down the aisle… it all came together and was an absolute “dream come true” type of day! We hope you enjoy a little glimpse into their Wedding at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve! xo
Elegant Winter Glam Wedding Details
Goodness, I could have captured these details all day long! From Renee’s beautiful Allure bridals dress, to her paper suite by Chick Invitations, to every little flower and ornament from A Garden Party, it was the epitome of glamour and elegance!
The Bride Getting Ready at The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve
Renee got ready in the bridal suite at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve surrounded by the most important ladies in her life! There was laugher, a few tears and so much love surrounding Renee!!
The Groom Getting Ready at The Hill School
Meanwhile, Ted was getting ready at The Hill School, where he actually went to high school! This place meant to much to him, that they chose to get married at the chapel on campus!
The Story of Renee & Ted
Thanks to a friend urging Ted to finally try online dating – he joined BUMBLE. The premise of Bumble is that if you both click that you “like” each other and you “match” – the women have to communicate first. With a “Hi Ted”, from Renee and a few corny jokes from Ted within a week they spoke on the phone and had their first date at Bar Lucca in Conshohocken. August 19, 2017 was the start of something great! From that moment on the fun dates filled with lots of laughs continued – including a trip to the US Open, Avalon, Old City and of course West Chester all within the first month.
On January 13th, 2019, Ted & Renee were vacationing with friends in Antigua. It was on this trip, that Ted got down on one knee by the oceanside and asked Renee to be his wife!
A Beautiful, Sentimental Ceremony at The Chapel at The Hill School
What a beautiful chapel to say your “I do’s” within! Reverend Gerry Davis created the most beautiful ceremony for Renee & Ted! There were many tears along the way, but those smiles when they were finally announced as Mr & Mrs Rhinehart are everything!
Bride & Groom Portraits at The Hill School
There was no shortage of spots to capture Renee & Ted’s love! As the sun began to set, we were able to capture the beautiful golden light for Renee & Ted’s photos! They really made our job easy!
A Fun, Glamorous Wedding Reception at The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve
Renee & Ted’s wedding was our first at The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve! However, since it is a Finley Catering venue, we knew it would be fabulous! The venue was set up so perfectly for cocktail hour, and then a grand entrance into the reception room! The warm, elegant details and bright florals surrounding the tables were breathtaking! BVT Live’s City Rhythm kept the guests dancing all night, and the jolly guy himself, Santa, even made an appearance! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for such a perfect couple!
What a perfect fall evening! The weather recently has really been either totally horrible or absolutely beautiful. We totally lucked out and had a gorgeous evening for Brian & Allison’s Batsto Village Engagement Photography!
Brian & Allison’s Proposal
Brian and Allison’s love story began over 9 years ago when they both worked as lifeguards at the township pool! Fast forward to this past Valentine’s Day, they were unable to celebrate because Allison was working a late shift. So, Brian suggested they celebrate the following Tuesday, since they were both off. Before they headed out, Brian gave Allison her gift. She opened the gift to find a collage of their cats and it said “Will You Meowy Me?” She then turned around to find Brian down on one knee with his camera set up, recording the whole thing! Of course she said YES! And Brian had their closest family and friends waiting at a local brewery to celebrate!!
Can’t wait for their wedding next year at Trump National! <3

Ryan and I first met Meredith & Travis only 4 days before their wedding. Although we’ve been chatting and getting to know one another through email for almost a year, it was amazing to finally meet these two in person! When we met, it was as if we’ve known them for years! This meeting made us just that much more excited for their wedding day, where we were greeted with hugs and smiles! We felt more like friends than hired vendors throughout the day, and that is just priceless! We love you both so much Meredith & Travis, and we were honored to capture your Stone Harbor Yacht Club Wedding! xo
Meredith Getting Ready at a Shore House in Stone Harbor, NJ
What a beautiful, bright, modern house to get ready in! The decor was just perfect! Meredith and her girls had a chill, fun morning in their “bikini” shirts, before it was time to officially get dressed! Have I told you lately how much I love Father-daughter first looks?! This might be my favorite thus far! Her dad’s reaction to seeing her for the first time was the sweetest!
Travis Getting Ready at The Windrift Hotel in Avalon, NJ
Travis and his guys got ready over at the Windrift Hotel! His dad helped him tie is tie, while his mom put his boutonnière on. There was so much laughter and excitement!
The Love Story of Meredith & Travis
Meredith & Travis’ Meet-cute as remembered by Meredith:
“After several cross-country moves and what I’d later come to find was a series of missed connections in our roaring 20’s, I met Travis when I moved back to Wilmington for work in the fall of 2014. Travis, Boston born & bred, worked for Capital One as well and had moved to Wilmington a few years prior from our LA office. Spoiler alert… there was no workplace scandal to be had and the next two years unfolded to become what I’d later call the most anticlimactic romance novel that could ever be written. Sorry to disappoint.
I was introduced to Travis for the first time on September 21, 2014 (my birthday) during a company volunteer committee meeting. After a few more interactions, this “cute bald guy at work” quickly escalated to full blown crush status (my first and last work crush ever for the record). As it turned out, this work crush of mine was reciprocated…
2+ years and hundreds of sporadic romantic texts and talks about dates without follow through, he finally decided to ask me on our first date. It was March 25, 2017. A few hours, several beverages, and an all-star Philly bar hop line up organized by yours truly, Travis paused (I admittedly was waiting for this romance novel to heat up a bit) and said: “wow, I didn’t realize you were so funny!” My immediate thought: “RUDE!” My response: “Well… I didn’t realize you were so smart!” And the rest was history.
All romance novel jokes aside, I am the luckiest gal to be marrying my work crush, best pal, and one true love who just happens to be the kindest person I’ll ever know (minus the I didn’t know you were funny comment on the first date, still pretty rude). Life is most certainly sweeter with my Honeybun by my side!”
A Sentimental Ceremony at Stone Harbor Yacht Club
Rev. Stephen Setzer put together such a meaningful ceremony for Meredith and Travis. There was laughter, there were tears, but overall, you could just feel the love and excitement that Meredith and Travis had as they would finally be married!!!
Bridal Party Photos at Stone Harbor Yacht Club
Before the ceremony, Meredith and Travis didn’t want to see one another, but they wanted to do some portraits outside! So, we made sure each one was hidden away as we took separate bride & bridesmaids portraits, and then groom & groomsmen portraits! After the ceremony, we were able to do some photos of them all together!
Bride & Groom Portraits at Stone Harbor Yacht Club
Easy. Comfortable. Fun-loving. Laughter. Love. Joy. All the words that come to mind when photographing Meredith & Travis. To say they made our job easy would be an understatement! They just had the best time together, laughing and loving on each other!
Tecate? Yep! Apparently, Tecate has played a small part in some big moments of Meredith & Travis’s relationship. From the moment she asked him to be her boyfriend, to when he asked her to be his wife, it was no surprise that Tecate would be the signature drink at their wedding!
A Fun-filled Stone Harbor Yacht Club Wedding Reception
The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor is so beautiful!! It was the perfect location for such an awesome celebration! Plus, with Chico’s Vibe jamming out, the party never stopped!!
