you found your best friend & the one you want to spend forever with...

Now let's celebrate that commitment (and the bling bling) by capturing the beginning of this next chapter in your lives together. When you hire Dearly Beloved for your wedding day, you receive a complimentary engagement photo session so you can get to know your photographer. We love to do an engagement session with our clients because it gives us a chance to meet each other and get you comfortable behind the camera before your big day. We love to build a relationship with our couples, so that way when your wedding day shows up, you know and (hopefully) love us! They're also really fun! We promise you won't say you hate taking photos afterwards.

Talk about a complete vibe. These two knew what they wanted and went for it. Their venue was a small restraunt in Philly with beautiful greenery and top of the line meals. Victoria and Ryan fully indulged on the day of their wedding.
A micro-wedding has the unique ability to make everyone feel like family, even if you’re not. It’s such an intimate and emotional experience that you naturally create connections with all of the guests there.
We were blessed to get to know Victoria and Ryan and some of their closest family and friends. During couples photos they escaped to the bar and had a sweet moment just for the two of them. Such a perfect way to end a perfect day.
If a big wedding isn’t what you imagine, something small can be just as beautiful. Celebrate your day exactly how you imagine.

Mackenzie and Ed spent the evening walking and exploring the Trexler Nature Preserve with Rachel. There were quiet intimate moments and lots of laughter too. The direct sun created some stunning opportunities and they fully took advantage of it.
Ultimately, this session should be a natural reflection of who you are as a couple. Natural and comfortable with real emotion.
Raw, real and authentic is our goal. Perfection in our relationships, marriage and work life is not realistic. Imperfection is beautiful.
