theresa & rob // barn on bridge

I’ve begun to feel like in every post our couples are described as amazing people and it really is the genuine truth.  Rob and Tess are AMAZING people and together they’re perfect.  After meeting these two the first time, I felt like Tess became my best friend.  We giggled and joked like we’d known each other forever.  If I have one recommendation for brides shopping for photographers it would be this…choose your photographer not only on their artistic talent and experience but how comfortable you feel after you meet.  We as photographers become your second maid of honor and best man.  Its a very unique relationship but I’m sure these two would tell you it makes all the difference come your wedding day.

These two decided to wait until the altar to lay eyes on each other and I believe it was perfect for them.  We were able to timeline the day perfectly and followed through on our promise that they’d be at Barn on Bridge for the start of their cocktail hour.

We loved Tess’s choice in bridesmaid dresses.  Pick the color and let the girls pick the dress, it adds so much flavor and texture to the images that I’ve begun to tell all of our brides about this great concept.  How gorgeous do they all look, you can tell they feel so comfortable and it really shows in their photographs.

After the ceremony we went to Valley Forge Park where Rob proposed and then to the arch for some great group images.  Tess and Rob wanted video for their wedding day from the beginning.  We always recommend video as the audio provides a whole other element of emotion when you want to relive your special day.  I must admit I teared up when I watched their trailer the first time 🙂 We had a great team shooting their trailer and full feature all day.  We posted their trailer before but I just have to share it again…click here!

Barn on Bridge in Collegeville is a FANTASTIC venue.  We’ve worked with Robert Ryan Catering at all their venues and their service and staff are unmatched.  The venue is a gorgeous setting and adds another element of texture and fun to their images.  We had an absolute blast with Rob, Tess, their families and all of their friends.  We’re so lucky to have met them and honored to have played a part in capturing their wedding in photographs and video.  Congratulations to you both!
