As the founders of DBW, we've spent a lot of our career dealing with the hustle and bustle of big weddings. Through the years we've seen it all, and for some couples, it's just not worth all the stress. Sometimes the best weddings and memories are created in a meaningful and beautiful location, surrounded by no-one else or just a handful of loved ones that mean the most to the two of you. Take it from us, these are always the types of weddings that leave a lasting impact. In 2022, we've decided to take a step back and focus on photographing and filming destination weddings, elopements, and small intimate weddings. By doing this we're able to connect more with the couple and truly produce our best work.
These two were killing the game. Keith looked super dapper in his suit and orange tie (perfect way to incorporate the fall season) and Casey looked like a goddess. Point blank. Her high neck cape and flowy intricate dress looked incredible during golden hour with the warm light seeping through. We love seeing our couples style and all the small details of the day. When couples have nods to their hometown and/or their story, it makes us feel like we have known them forever.
In more ways than one, marriage creates a lifelong bond. You instantly gain twice the amount of family which equals twice the amount of love. Casey and Keith are blessed with three beautiful daughters. It was so sweet to see their connection and reaction during the ceremony. Blended families are super special. It’s obvious that they don’t take this for granted.
It was a gorgeous fall day. Lots of bold and bright foliage creates an amazing back drop. Each season has its own pros but the fall season has something extra special. Just like Casey and Keith.
We always feel so honored when we get asked to photograph weddings, because weddings are such a personal experience. But weddings especially like Savanna and Hunter’s make us feel like we’re even a part of the family. Savanna and Hunter opted out of having your traditional large wedding and instead had about 12 people, close friends and family surrounding them on their wedding day. It was so intentional and made the day even more meaningful.
Savanna and Hunter have been through a lot together and you can tell their love will go the distance. They’ve been together since they were both really young. Getting to capture their vows under the twinkle lights on a night that literally seemed like the most perfect fall ambience was so beautiful. The moments captured were real, raw and romantic.
Their ceremony was by the lake, behind one of the cabins at Mountain Springs Lake Resort in the Poconos. It was absolutely stunning! Savanna looked jaw dropping-ly beautiful in that dress. Her photos even got featured on David’s Bridal!
The intimate wedding night ended with all of us in the cabin, watching a slideshow of photos from their childhood together to present day. It was so special. Forever honored to be a part of capturing love stories like Savanna and Hunter’s.
Photos by Founder Kristen This pandemic has brought a new meaning to wedding days for us and for a lot of couples. In 2020 we photographed and filmed more elopements than we ever have before… and we are not complaining about it one bit. There is just something that is so much more impactful and […]
At the end of the day, getting married is really all about you two coming together. When you get married, whether it’s just the two of you eloping or a small wedding in your backyard with a few special family members & friends… it strips away all of the “ extra stuff” of a traditional big wedding. Elopements & intimate ceremonies allow for a more meaningful, authentic wedding day that’s a true reflection of your relationship—where the focus of the day is really just your love.
Vitaly + Natalie were such an amazing couple to work with. They traveled from Germany to Iceland to elope in this incredible country. We had the opportunity to photograph and film the day from start to finish. It was an unforgettable experience. We’re so excited to share everything very soon! Can’t wait for our next destination.
Our best friends Brianna and Zachary got married! When they asked us back around Christmas we obviously couldn’t say no. It was a total secret and only a few family members knew.
We got to attend the Adventurers Workshop, hosted by Maddie Mae and Abbi Hearne. We drove through Phoenix, a land covered in giant cacti, then Flagstaff, where it was snowing, and then finally we arrived in Page. It was amazing!
After months of trying to plan a regular wedding in Philadelphia, Dave and Christine decided to follow their hearts and elope. So we ventured out via a helicopter and they got married in the most beautiful Alaskan landscape.
Shawn and Teara decided on having an intimate destination wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica at The Moon Palace. Despite the pandemic, they remained hopeful to have their dream wedding. We all left our homes in PA and hopped on a plane to Jamaica.
