Karyn + Dave. Married at Stotesbury Mansion in Philadelphia.

Anyone who knows Dave and Karyn know they are a riot.  Always cracking jokes.  Lots of sarcasm along with a hint of a dry sense of humor.  Just my kind of people.  And after meeting them for lunch, It didn't take me long to realize they were going to have a great wedding.  One that I was honored to be a part of. I'll be honest though, I was a bit nervous to perform for these two.  Dave is a local wedding photographer so the pressure was on.  I love being asked to photograph the weddings of colleagues.  Its humbling, fun, and also I challenge.  And while I don't get nervous the day of, those few minutes after you notify them their pictures are ready are a bit nerve-racking.  Did I do a good job?  Will they like them?  I'm sure I'm not the only one that has those thoughts.

In the end, there was nothing to worry about.  The wedding was great.  The people were great.  The day was great.  There was a lot of sarcasm.  A lot of jokes.  And a ton of happiness.  Dave and Karen were king and queen for the day, as noted in their special crowns they got to wear.  And as the famous saying goes:

It's good to be king.

Check out Dave's work here. And, thanks again to my trusty assistant, George.
