2018 Best Wedding Photos | Delaware and Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer

2018 was so much fun! I decided to do a round up of some (this was so hard to choose which photos I wanted to post!) of my favorite shots and moments from the year. I did some traveling this year to Lenox, Ma, some close to home in Philadelphia, the PA countryside, and of course, Wilmington Delaware. There was an amazing farm wedding in PA (check out the horseshoe shaped ring) , we had formal and casual, beach and ballroom…2018 had it all. My favorites from the year are separated below by details, reception, couples (together and separate) , and bridal party photos. I had the pleasure of working with some of the best wedding planners, makeup and hair artists, amazing second shooters, venues, and florists. 2018 was also special to me for winning my first wedding photo award from Masters of Wedding Photography, I also had an image that made it to the finalists in the Fearless Photographers contest this year. It was a huge honor to be amongst some of the top photographers in the world. I’m so thankful to my wonderful couples, their families and of course, my own family, who support me in heading out so may Saturday nights to do what I love.

Below is a snippet of photos you might not see on my instagram or facebook. These are some of my favorite photos from 2018:
