Category : beach, destination, photography(1) Comment 路 by Sep 28th, 2012

You guys remember Kristen & Erik? Well, inspired by Rob & Jamie’s amazing Key West Wedding, (Jamie is Erik’s sister), these two decided to get hitched in Puerto Rico, a place that is very near & dear to Kristen’s family! Everyone traveled to beautiful San Juan and it was an amazing affair. 馃檪

The entire event was beautiful, and took place at the San Juan Marriot. We had a chance to see the rehearsal and enjoy a beautiful dinner the night before with the whole group, a fun-loving bunch of close-knit peeps. We are in love with this family!! We actually started planning “destination birth” photos in France when future kiddos arrive. Just need to get Rob’s approval, haha!

As for our fantastic newlyweds, Kristen & Erik are an absolute blast, and their love for each other radiated throughout the entire trip!

Nationally Published Delaware Wedding Photographers

Hey guys!! Guess what?? (Pause…) One of our weddings made the COVER of a NATIONAL MAGAZINE!!!! They did a huge feature & everything!

Remember Anna & Tai Jin? Here’s a link to their engagement session and the sneak peek we posted from their gorgeous Delaware beach wedding. Well, they submitted their wedding photography to the folks over at Stampington & they loved it so much that they made them the cover photo for Mingle magazine, featuring a six-page spread chock full of their Leafo wedding photos!!

Their wedding featured TONS of gorgeous handmade details, and we are so excited to share them with you!





An eclectic theme seamlessly combined elements from both of their backgrounds. Gorgeous handmade decor incorporated the ocean (where Anna’s family has spent many summers), while parasols, fish kites, and traditional delicacies offered a stylish nod to their shared loved for Chinese culture.



Pre-ceremony, we hit the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach. The entire wedding party & many guests headed into Funland for bumper cars and carousel rides. Afterward, a friend dressed in full mariachi regalia serenaded them. They were slicing through crowds better than Moses parted the Red Sea!







It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a beach wedding!





Anna & Tai-Jin, thank you both SO much for submitting our photos & inviting us to be part of your fantastically unique, beautiful wedding day! Many thanks also go out to Anna’s mother, Andrea, for designing all of those gorgeous decorative details! You can check out her blog, Dangling Threads, for even more creative genius 馃檪

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Wedding Photographers

Kristen & Erik’s Engagement Session

You may remember these two from Rob & Jamie’s ridiculously fun Key West wedding. Erik is the bride’s brother, and he & Kristen actually got engaged while they were in Florida for the wedding! We had a blast getting to know them that week, and when they asked us to be their wedding photographers, we were SO excited! These two are silly, sweet, and have some serious movie quoting abilities. What’s not to love??


We traveled up to their gorgeous home in the historic city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. It was a fantastic autumn day!


These two are so cute together!


Loving the bling & Kristen’s wooden ring from Puerto Rico.


Bat those lashes!


More adorability. It’s a skill. Look it up 馃槈


Serious face.


Aaand break!


We love this photo for so many reasons:

1. Our couple is awesome.

2. The old steel mill is a huge part of the town’s history. It helped build the world’s first Ferris wheel for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and the Golden Gate Bridge!

3. This area was inside a paid admission festival, blocked by a carnival ride, fenced off, and in a “No Trespassing” area. Many, many thanks to all three levels of security who were kind enough to let us in for one great shot!

4. Our couple is awesome!

Kristen & Erik, thanks again for the amazing adventure in your gorgeous town. We can’t wait for your destination wedding in Puerto Rico next summer!

Lewes Historical Society Wedding: Maren + Ryan

Maren & Ryan are an awesome couple. They currently live in Michigan, where Ryan is a top-notch college field hockey coach and Maren plays professional field hockey for the USA women’s team! Despite their busy schedules & frequent long-distance commutes, they’ve managed to maintain a laid-back attitude about everything. Their positive energy and quirky creativity is contagious, and it permeated every detail of their wedding day to make an event that was absolutely unique to them!


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Maren’s Seychelles bridal shoes!!


Her dad was also styling that day with his white leather kicks & a tie clip embellished with Maren’s baby picture.


Ryan & Maren’s wedding rings. Our bride also wore another ring that belonged to her great grandmother, and she used blue string to size the band. (Old, new, borrowed, and blue — check!)


The ladies finished getting ready at the Lewes Historical Society.


Did we mention how adorable these shoes are??




Meanwhile, the guys diligently prepared for the wedding… 馃槈


The look on Ryan’s face says it all.


An absolutely gorgeous day at Canalfront Park in Lewes!


A very sweet sand ceremony. Maren’s dad is the Mayor of Lewes, so he was able to officiate their ceremony. So cool!


The kiss!


After the ceremony, we were able to sneak away with the couple for a few minutes & wander around downtown Lewes.



Maren’s gorgeous flowers designed by Silk & Sands Florist.



One of our favorite shots from the day — so cute!


Such a cute couple!


We <3 Hydrangeas


A cute guest book idea!


All of the tables were adorned with wild flowers, and chalkboard menus labeled all of the choices provided for guests (16 mile –yummy!!). Every amazing detail was perfect & unique thanks to Make My Day Event Planning.


Yummy hors d’oeurves from Plate catering.


Ryan definitely knows how to keep his new bride smiling!


Adorable 馃檪


More details! The groom’s orange calla lillies really popped against the blue hydrangeas.


Branding at its best: these little labels adorned their dessert bar, invitations, and thank you cards. Way to theme it out, guys!







And a little bit louder now…


Sing it!


Groom sandwich!


An impromptu mother-daughter dance 馃檪


Congratulations, you gorgeous newlyweds!! Thanks so much for inviting us to photograph your wedding — it was an absolutely fantastic, fun, beautiful day!

Anna & Tai-Jin’s Engagement Photography

Meet Anna & Tai-Jin. This tech-savvy couple (he’s a software engineer & she builds iPods for Apple!) contacted us to be their wedding photographers when they decided to plan their destination wedding in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. While getting to know them, Anna shared that they love going out dancing. Poof, inspiration for the engagement shoot! Many thanks to the owners of Eden & JAM for letting us use their stage for some tango-licious photos!

The couple met in their college dorm at Stanford, and the chemistry between them is undeniable. Tai-Jin has a way of making Anna smile & laugh. They were dancing as if we weren’t even there!


Obligatory semi-artsy shadow shot. So cool!


Walkin’ on sunshine.


So cute!


Leif: “Can you fix her hair for me?”

Silly, messy, yummy!
