Philadelphia Engagement Session || Meet Jennifer + Ryan|| BG Productions

I Love shooting in the snow!! and Rolling Hills Park was Amazing!! We can't wait to go there on our own and explore all around!! and they have the Greatest dog park-we cant wait to take Bella there!! We were thrilled that Jennifer and Ryan brought along their adorable rescue from Guatemala- Sammy. This was such a great space for a Philadelphia Engagement Session. We had so much fun with the 3 of them. And Jennifer and Ryan are as sweet as can be. To us engagement sessions are a great way for us all to get to know each other. We had a great time talking with them about their trip to Cuba. that is at the top of our travel list. They said it was a wonderful, beautiful trip.Its super cool. We cant wait to set up a trip there and pick their brain for all the cool spots to check out!! We can't wait for their BIG day!!  We know their wedding at Pomme this summer is going to be Awesome!!

Philadelphia Gay Blizzard Wedding || Daniel + Garry || BG Productions Photography and Videography

Nothing was going to get in the way of their wedding. Not even the Blizzard Jonas that hit the East coast this past Saturday. This wedding was captured by our Awesome Possum Lead Associate Shooter Jen Cleary. Philadelphia Gay Blizzard Wedding  Her commitment and professionalism really shined! She took it upon herself to book a hotel across from their wedding at the Loews Hotel.  She didn't take any chances on missing their Big Day. And despite the blizzard and a little less than half their guests (guest count should have been 40) they didnt let any of it bother them. They even braved the weather (when the winds weren't too strong) to get a few photos on the deserted Market Street. and how cool are they!! the Loews did a wonderful job, not missing a beat, and Jen says they were Fantastic to work with!

We wish this adorable couple years of love, adventure, and not too many more blizzards! Philadelphia _Gay _Blizzard _Wedding_Loews_HotelPhiladelphia _Gay _Blizzard _Wedding_Loews_HotelPhiladelphia _Gay _Blizzard _Wedding_Loews_Hotel   (more…)

NJ Wedding Photographer ||BG Productions Photography and Videography || Jodi and Alex

Our 2016 wedding season started BIG! Jodi and Alex's Jan. 2 wedding was GORGEOUS!! You may remember these two from their super cute Villanova engagement session we did last year. We have gotten to know  Jodi and Alex, as well as her parents over the past year and a half.  And were super excited when the wedding day finally arrived! The reception was held at Jodi's parents house in Moorestown, NJ. This is also where Jodi and her 13 bridesmaids got ready! Al and I had been to the house a couple of times (Jodi's mom even made us dinner!!) so we were really familiar with the lay of the land. This was super important as this was a long day with many different components it to- and a sun that was setting not long after the ceremony so we needed to stay very focused. Our awesome 2nd team (Jen and Brian- and Stacey was also with Al and I) were busy with Alex and his 12 groomsmen at the Crowne Plaza. Jodi looked so beautiful and it was super fun getting ready with her and her mom and sister (MOH). There was a LOT of laughing and squealing and some tears too! after a ton of photos at the house it was time for her to get to the church to walk down the aisle to her soon-to-be-husband! And he had the Sweetest expression when he saw her! Such love between these two. After all the photos were taken the couple got to enjoy some fun down time with their bridal party. Jodi had a change to her hair and make up style and Alex got in a few games of pool. I think these were some of the best moments of the day! The reception was a tented affair put together by Cescaphe Event Group. But this isn't an ordinary tent wedding! It was Stunning. All draped in reds, burgundies, purple with chandeliers, candles and flowers everywhere! Illuninaire supplied the draping and  lighting and Beautiful Blooms did all the florals. The entire yard was decorated as well. There was a lounge area with heaters, carolers, roasted nuts, twinkle lights and later a Whalburger truck and a smore station! There were also fireworks which we were not there for. There was not one detail missing!! We know Jodi and Alex are having a blast on their Honeymoon in Costa Rica and Brazil. Thanks to our Awesome team (Al, Brian, Jen and Stacey) for rocking this wedding and capturing some Amazing imagery!

    Gabrielle - How am I supposed to pick just one?! These are stunning!!! I absolutely love that they went with a holiday theme – so different, and so cool. I’m going to vote for the forehead-to-forehead among the tree branches. Just a bit of holiday flair (the lights and his red boutonniere), and such a nice moment. You could literally pull any of these shots out of a hat, though, and come up with something gorgeous. Congrats!

  • 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!!
