    BG Productions Photography and Videography
    Award Winning, Inventive, Fun-Loving, Passionate

    Al and Cat are energetic, but down-to-earth wedding professionals. You’ll find Cat on the floor at some point (and on a chair if it’s allowed by the venue). Al can be seen with his video camera high overhead on the dance floor and using his glide cam for all those really smooth shots. Each member of the BG team is chosen specifically for their positive attitude -- in conjunction with strong commitment and ability to make your photos and videos the highest quality. The final result of all this hard work is artistic imagery that captures your love and your style. The focus isn't on stiff, posed shots, but instead our experienced photographers will work with you to get your best shot... and have fun doing it!

    BG Productions is proud to be a socially-conscious, green company. We are listed on the Green Bride Guide and you can read more about our green practices here. Thank you for your interest.

Springton Manor Farm Wedding || Tattooed Bride and Groom

If you know us at all you know we LOVE cool details. This Springton Manor Farm Wedding has it all: fall colors and a super fun tattooed bride and groom! SO of course we were able to get some amazing Springton Manor Farm Wedding photos of Lauren and Rick on their BIG day!! Despite the on and off rain we had a Blast taking their wedding portraits.  We had actually done their engagement session (see photos here) at Springton Manor Farm about a month and a half prior to the wedding. So at least they were able to get some photos of them in the sunshine.

We met up with Lauren in the early afternoon to capture her getting dressed. At first it was just her there so it gave us some time just to talk, relax and take some great detail shots. She had come from having her hair and makeup done by Parlour and looked Amazing! Not long after, Rick and his groomsmen showed up to get ready as well. Once her bridesmaids and mother arrived at the venue it was time to get Lauren dressed for their first look. The rain held off long enough that we could do the first look photos outside. Then of course we knew seeing the goats was a priority  (Lauren is a vet and LOVES animals) so we headed right over to them.

Rain Rain Go Away

I think it must be good luck to get kissed by a goat on your wedding day because that seemed to hold off the rain for a bit! As soon as we got to the pond it started to rain so we took a few quick photos but wanted to get the couple back inside so they didn't get drenched before their ceremony. Since Springton Manor Farm has a beautiful covered porch we were able to do some bridal party photos there. I love all the bridesmaids dresses, they looked fantastic. It was really awesome to see a bridal party with lots of tattoos just like the tattooed bride and groom. There was definitely some beautiful artwork.

If you remember we LOVE when a tattooed bride and groom show off their artwork at their weddings! Remember this blog post all about it?

Originally their ceremony was going to be in front of the gazebo but they sent up a tent instead. It had been raining for the past several days which would've made the grass wet and muddy. No one wants a wet and muddy bride or guests! This was super helpful actually from a photography standpoint because it helped us light the ceremony for photos. The sun was setting rapidly and it got very dark by the time the ceremony ended. But the ceremony was super sweet and even included Rick's son Alex.

We Love the Awesome Vendors We Work With

Lauren and Rick worked with The Styled Bride to help make their Springton Manor Farm wedding visions come to life. J Scott Catering along with Sullivan & Owen did a fantastic job. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous. And thanks to Soul Patch, the guest enjoyed the wonderful band. Definitely one of the highlights was the cute Photo Booth by Insta Shack. They were taking photos as well as gifs of the guests. Everyone seemed to have a great time.

We were thrilled to capture this wedding and work with a fantastic team of vendors:

    Jeremy Lincoln - What I love about these is that it really gives a good sense of who the couple is. The gifts they opened give us just a little glimpse. I am sure people who know them will appreciate those shots even more! I am also really impressed by the shots of the rings on the birch branches. Very striking.

    Amy Elizabeth - These Springton Manor Farm wedding photos are stunning! I absolutely love your style of photography. The lighting and colors are paired so well. The tattooed bride and groom have amazing style and it was so fun seeing how many of their wedding guests were tattooed as well, such a fun crowd!! BG Productions did a great job!

    Melanie Weitzenkorn - I love this Springton Manor Farm wedding, absolutely gorgeous photos and they definitely did not let the rain get them down. Rainy day weddings can be awesome too! And so fun with the farm animals in their wedding photos!

Bay Head Yacht Club Wedding

September 30th was a dreary day outside for a Bay Head Yacht Club Wedding on Barnegat Bay in Bay Head, NJ. But inside the rental houses where Katerina and Greg were each getting ready, it was nothing but sunshine. I'm always a little bummed for our couples who have an outdoor ceremony and wedding photos planned and then it rains. Still, we remind them that no matter what at the end of the day they're married and that's what counts. We truly believe that. And we know that in their heart of hearts they are a little bummed so we can't help but feel for them.

But this wedding was completely different. I walked in to Katerina's beach house from the torrential downpour that was happening outside to find her so happy and so full of positive energy. That positivity lasted the entire night and Greg was the same way. He just couldn't stop smiling. And when the 2 of them together they laughed the whole time. It was so easy to be around them and capture their true spirits. It was just so sweet how much they were bursting with happiness! We don't see that at every wedding.  Everyone at the wedding were really nice and easy to work with.

My favorite moments of the day we certainly their first look. Even with all the rain we were able to get an outside feel by being at the bottom level of the Bay Head Yacht Club. Their love is so obvious. We are blessed we got to capture such an Awesome Day!

Maddyson + Jordan || Philadelphia Engagement Photography by BG Productions

We spent a couple of hours this week walking around with Maddyson and Jordan doing their Philadelphia Engagement photography. They wanted to stop by a few of their favorite places in Center City. And then we ended with going to Cira Green to get a killer view of Philly.  Their favorite restaurant in town is Giorgios on Pine (Al and I can't wait to check it out) so that's where we began. Then stopping at City Hall, Dilworth Plaza and a quick stop at the Wanamaker Building! It was a gorgeous day and we really enjoy hanging out with Maddyson and Jordan. They are just super sweet, chill and easy to talk to. We cant wait to capture their wedding next year. We hope you enjoy a few of our favorite photos of the day.

Lauren + Frank's Pearl S Buck House Wedding || BG Productions Lead Associate Team

Our BG Productions lead associate team, Jen and James, did a fantastic job photographing this Pearl S Buck House wedding. You may remember Lauren and Frank from their engagement session in Lambertville. The Pearl S Buck House is such a fantastic place for wedding photography. There are so many great locations all around the property. It's such a beautiful place for an outdoor ceremony.

Jen started with photographing Lauren and her bridesmaids getting ready while James captured Frank and the guys. The guys sure look like they're having a blast! And Lauren was enjoying spending this important time with her mom and friends before they came together for their first look. I love when couples do a first look. You can instantly see how much more relaxed they are once they are together. And Jen and James photographed it beautifully. After wandering around the property and taking gorgeous portraits of these two they all met up with the rest of their wedding party. Jen reported that everyone was fantastic to work with and what a great time they all had.

The Ceremony

A lot of the special moments of the day is in the ceremony. But this ceremony was even more special as Lauren's MOH was also the officiant. I think that is so cool. And Frank's sister read from the book "What I Like About You" (A book I have gave to Al a few years ago!!)

You certainly couldn't beat that gorgeous light they had for sunset at this Pearl S Buck House Wedding. The four of them drove around in a golf cart in the open field behind the ceremony area. What beautiful light to capture such perfect moments.

Jamie Hollander Catering & Events, along with Open Aire Affairs, did a fabulous job putting all the reception details together and I loved all the organic floral decorations from Allium Floral Design. Lauren and Frank danced the night away with their guest thanks for the sounds of G-Force.

We loved that our Awesome Possum Lead Associate team could capture this beautiful Pearl S. Buck House Wedding and we're so grateful to Lauren and Frank for choosing BG Productions to capture all the fun and beauty.
