    Woah!  2012.  Helloooooo.   How are you doing? I'm doing great - thanks for letting me capture an awesome wedding to Kick off the New Year! 

    -Ehhh It's late, and I'm getting tired -which for those who know me actually makes me really really slap happy.  Hense the reason I just had a converstation with 2012... Good times.

    ANYWAY.

    I met Rachel actually through the amazing Sheila Gross a wonderful Wedding Minister who was at a few of my weddings in 2011 (though I'm pretty sure we definitely had events in common prior and just can't remember.)  It turned out that Sheila's best friends daughter was actually getting married and she was determined to have me capture it!  And wouldn't you know it - I was given the honor!  It was an amazing day, filled with emotion and great times at the wonderful Franklin Institute.  Rachel and Brad were completely awesome, rocking out the day in fashion and allowing me to capture some of my favorite shots ever!  After they met up (their family snook a peek) we headed out towards the institute, Shooting in the room first and making a quick pitstop on a back street to get some cool "Philly Wall" Captures.  After getting to the Institute the first thing I noticed was the cool pattern on the floor and the fact I could get up High and shoot down with my favorite lens (Tilt Shift) that allows me to fix distortions in a photo!  So after walking around a bit more it was off to the ceremony - one of the darkest, but coolest ceremonies I've ever been too!  Check out the shot of the stars and moon (hopefully I can bribe Rachel to explain the significance of it).  The reception was again ornate and amazing and very colorful, filled with some awesome dancers!  Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day!  Another couple that makes my job so worth it!

    You Rock.
    -Drew
