Davios Wedding || Jill + Jason || BG Productions

Despite the heavy rains, BG Productions Photography and Videography had the pleasure of capturing Jill and Jason's intimate Davios wedding on Oct. 3, 2015.  Jason found us through a friends wedding we did and we were thrilled to welcome them to the BG Family. Although Al and I were in Vermont capturing another wedding, we knew they were in great hands with our awesome Lead Associate shooter Jen. she has a fantastic ability to capture so much even when it is a small wedding with just a few hours. Jill and Jason had a awesome day. Yeah it rained during their outdoor ceremony on the rooftop of Davios and then they couldn't really go anywhere for photos because of it, but none of that mattered. This couple had a smile on their face ALL day!! Jason at one point even leaned over the edge of the patio to shout how much he loved Jill! How sweet is that. And Jills son wasn't able to be at the wedding in person so they had him on skype the whole time! This wedding was full of fun personal touches. Instead of names at their place settings they had nick names and a their relationship to the couple. Guests had to guess which seat was theirs- With the Dr. Who card I would have thought Al had been invited! lol!! Jen is actually a Whovian too! They also played a trivia game about the couple using large head cut outs to choose your answers. Too much fun! We know Jill and Jason are in for a lifetime of fun and happiness! Thanks for choosing BG Productions Photography and to Jen for capturing it all so beautifully.

Foxchase Golf Club Wedding || Philadelphia Photographers || BG Productions

Everything about this wedding on Sept. 26th was Perfect!! When we met Megan and Brian over a year ago we just Knew they were a Perfect match for the BG Family. We couldn't wait to capture all of their Foxchase Golf Club Wedding photos!  They were super sweet, adorable and totally laid back! Perfect like I said! The only concern came in the planning when we learned that Pope Francis would be visiting Philadelphia that week and they were basically shutting down the city and the roads all around it! Luckily we live outside of the "traffic box" and we were able to get there actually faster than a normal day because the traffic was very light! we had some zig zagging and a little back tracking to do on the way home- but all and all- just not a big deal at all! We couldn't have asked for a better day- even though it was a bit cloudy and a little windy at times (like their arbor for the ceremony kept blowing over so they couldn't use it!) But everything was so beautiful. And as a photographer I will take cloudy any day with some breaks of blue! Keeps everything nice and even! And we got some of the most Gorgeous photos of these two! Its hard not too though when you are as cute as they are. This is a 2nd marriage for each so they wanted to keep is on the smaller side. But they knew they still wanted it to be beautiful ad special and surrounded by family and friends. We love that they didn't have a wedding party except their adorable 5 year old son Dillion and a couple of nieces that were flower girls. Both Brian and his dad work at Foxchase Golf Club so it was the perfect place to host their wedding. Megan's mom made all the table arrangements and they looked fantastic! The bouquet and the boutonnieres came from Blooming Time Floral and Megan's friend Lisa did her makeup and did a beautiful job!! Their guests danced under the pavilion thanks to the sounds of their DJ- Top Hat. I think the big hit of the night were all the AH-MAZING pies made by their friends Abby and Jenna! Those little triple choc. cheesecakes were to die for!! Nom Nom!! The evening was topped off with an amazing moon with moody clouds that provided the perfect end shot to the day! We are so blessed to have been chosen by Megan and Brian to capture all their LOVE! We know you are having a great honeymoon in Boston and all your other stops in the Northeast.

    Gabrielle - In LOVE with the feel of this wedding!! So lush with all the green nature in so many shots. HAVE to vote for the moon shot, though – how perfect!

  • October 2, 2015 - 10:35 am

    Melissa - Wow, what beautiful and romantic and natural and genuine shots! My favorite has to be the close-up of the couple kissing where her hand is on his cheek and the brown branches are the backdrop. Gorgeous!

  • October 2, 2015 - 10:09 pm

    Elle - I love the one from the side where she has her hands on his chest, right before the black and white photo. The laughing and the expressions and the flowers are just the most GORGEOUS!! Congrats to the beautiful couple :)

    Gen - My favorite’s the last one… with the moon in the background! They’re all gorgeous. Beautiful couple, beautiful day.

    mcmcrae - So many lovely photos that it’s hard to choose a favourite, but I think I’ve narrowed it down to two. Not sure I can describe them accurately though. By my count, it’s the 23rd shot from the bottom–the one of the three of them (Megan, Brian, and Dylan) hugging on the dance floor. My other favourite is 28th from the bottom (I think)–it’s the one where Megan and Brian are walking down a path, holding hands, and Megan is slightly ahead but looking back at Brian. Gorgeous!

Philadelphia Family Photography || Charlie turns 2|| BG Productions

We love getting the chance to photograph families as they are growing up. We have had several previous shoots with the adorable little girl and her parents. This year we decided to go to the zoo for her 2nd birthday photos. Shooting this kind of a day is soooo Perfect and something we LOVE to do! It is so much fun running around the zoo with a 2 year old and captured all the fun and wonderment! We saw lions and tigers, and Bears Oh MY!! Take a peek into a day with a 2 year old! Speaking of lions- we had a blast playing with one of the cubs through the glass. It was so obviosuly playing with us. It was cute hearing charlie giggle!! The giraffe were also a Big hit! and my personal favorites! Thank you for always choosing us to capture your Awesome family!! Philadelphia Family Photography

Pit Bull Photography || BG Bully Family || BG Productions

As part of our ongoing personal work BG Bully Family Project we will be posting a selection of photos from each session.  
We will also be donating 50% of Any sales that results from prints, wall art, or usb's of full session to Pinups for Pitbulls to aid in the education of how Awesome these dogs are!! About the project....
We have a passion for rescue work and a passion for photographing people, places, and things and telling their story! So we are embarking on a personal project to help end the negative stereotypes of Bully Breed dogs!! We thought what better way then to show these beautiful dogs being loved on and loving the humans that saved them- especially those with children!! With the negative stereotypes people think these dogs aren't good for homes with small kids! Well these families would disagree! We also wanted to showcase families that are also discriminated against and face stereotypes- people with tattoos! I LOVE photographing beautiful INK!!! and i LOVE LOVE dogs!! so follow along on our journey as we try to dispel a lot of myths!! As a Philadelphia pet photographer I wanted to capture some of the Bully Love that is all around!
We had such a great tine meeting Gabby and Brad and their 3 lovely dog daughters! Talk about a sweet couple and super sweet dogs, We really enjoyed just hanging out and talking with Gabby and Chris (who are getting married next May- Congrats!) Chris actually went to the Art Institute of Philadelphia for video productions just like Al, so they had a lot in common to talk about. They live in the historic landmark of the Caleb Pusey Plantation- pretty cool little area.  And it provided a great back drop to their photos with the 3 awesome pitties! This is what Gabby had to say about her furry kids....
We have three Bullies. Rogue, Mia and Morgan
Rogue and Mia are litter mates that are completely different in every way. Rogue is out going, loves loves kids, is dark brown and Brindle and is our most laid back dog. Rogue is most happy lounging on the couch with her sisters or sun bathing and of course snuggling with my niece Mackenzie ( who claims Rogue is her dog).  Mia on the other hand is red and white, very nervous about new people, new noises and doesn't like being left alone. Mia Loves to run, if you give her the chance she will run non stop. She spends most of her time in her "princess chair" but open the door and she'll be gone. Morgan ( half pitbull half beagle) is my adopted daughter that came in the house with my fiance, she is a rescue who was found in Maryland by a rescue called Response-a-bull, pregnant and suspected of being used as a  breeder for a dog fighting ring. Blending our family was difficult in the beginning. Morgan is dog selective, few dogs she loves but most dogs not so much, needless to say she was not excited about having two new sisters. Mia and Rogue are pretty independent and are happy just to be together and if we are there thats also nice, but Morgan is our lover. she wants to snuggle with any human that comes in the house after she checks you out! she loves attention and will happily give you her paw then roll over for a belly rub. Our three girls are inseparable! just the way I like it.
Why do you want to be a part of this project? 
I want to be apart of this project because I witness how fearful people are of them and to be honest it breaks my heart. I have examples of both one rescued, rehabilitated and just wanting to be loved and two that were raised from birth by a responsible pet parent and turned out great;if I do say so myself. I think it is time to revamp the medias perception of the Bully breed. 
We hope you enjoy this adorable BG Bully Family and the Pit Bull Photography

    Bridget - I LOVE the one where Gabby looks like she’s laughing. You can really tell
    How much this couple loves each other and their beautiful, blended, bully babies. Brought a tear to my eye. They exude true love.

  • October 4, 2015 - 1:24 am

  • About Us

    Our approach is a photojournalist style. But that being said- dont worry, we still make sure we get all the posed formal pictures. However we love to capture all the funky shots. i am usually on the floor at some point and on a chair if allowed by the venue! Al can be seen with his video camera high over head on the dance floor and often using his glide cam for all those really smooth shots! We also fully support the DIY weddings. There is so much you can do yourself or through other handmade goods. there is a plethora of cool Indy wedding blogs and we encourage our clients to check them out. Mostly we believe your wedding day should be all about you and your personalities- not what some wedding magazine tells you it should be. so go ahead- think outside the BOX!!! So check out our work and we look forward to capturing your BIG day!!
