    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.

Stoltzfus Homestead Wedding || Kirstyn + Jackie || BG Productions

Reason Number one love our couples: They never let rain get them down on their wedding day. And this beautiful Stoltzfus Homestead Wedding starring Kirstyn and Jackie was no exception. BG Productions was thrilled to capture this crazy fun couple in both photos and video. Kirstyn and Jackie were total Rock Stars and didn't let a little (well okay a lot ) of rain get them down!! This same-sex couple had the wedding of their dreams at Stoltzfus Homestead and Garden. We were very lucky however and that we were able to get their first look and some of their portraits together outside before the rain began. While it wasn't the prettiest of days out, it didn't matter because they were so adorable and sooooo in love with each other.  And how beautiful did they both look. They had the help of their friends Grace and Laura doing their hair and makeup. Stoltzfus Homestead Wedding Gay Weddings

We don't let the rain slow us down. Al was even able to get a few minutes of drone footage. They were so thrilled and excited!  We always work so hard and hustle to try to get in as much of what we know the couple wants as possible despite any obstacles like the weather. But we remind them that it's mostly important just to have fun and live in the moment. Now they will have some extra funny stories to tell about their wedding day. And how perfect that they were wearing cowboy boots. A little rain getting on them wouldn't hurt them at all. But they had some cute rain boots on standby just in case they needed. And besides they had those cute rainbow socks to keep their feet warm. Who doesn't love rainbow socks!!

Thanks to the really cute barn that the reception was being held in we were able to still get some good wedding party and family "formal" pictures in before the ceremony. The ceremony was always supposed to be in the smaller barn so the rain didn't affect them in that regard at all.

I so love the look of the barn. Their florists, Pearls and Petals along with Festive Board Catering, located in York, did a fantastic job decorating everything. Another thing I loved about the barn was the loft area where the DJ, Klock Entertainment, was. It allowed us the ability to go up there and get photos and videos from above as well. These always make really cool shots because they show how much your guests are enjoying themselves. And this crowd definitely had a good time!!! There was a lot of crazy dancing (mostly coming from Kirstyn)!! LOL. It was so great to see them having so much fun with their friends and family. Jackie's father made one of the most touching speeches I have ever heard. I wish all parents of LGBTQ youth felt the same.  They are both blessed to have such great and supportive families.  We couldn't be happier for them.

We are honored to be chosen to capture such important memories. Thanks to the whole BG Team (Al and Brian on video and Jen as my awesome possum 2nd shooter).

Hershey Engagement Photography || Erica and Shannon || BG Productions

The most important part of our job in any photos session is to show our subjects true personalities and the connection between our couples. It is important to us to show how much they're in love and how fun they are. Our clients don't want static, over trendy photos they they can't "see themselves" in. They jsut want pretty, cool, not overly posed photos that reflect who they are. So when Erica and Shannon weren't as happy with the photos from an engagement session they had, they went on the hunt for a new photographer for their wedding day. We were totally stoked that they found us. We hit it off right away. Just meeting over Google chat we could see their personalities and how funny they are. We understood their hesitancy  and concerns and agreed to meet them at their venue to check it out and do a mini engagement session. They had rolling with laughter the whole time. We wanted them to just be themselves and put their minds at ease that you would totally see their personalities through the photos.  And they look adorable together. Hershey Engagement Photography

Historic Acres of Hershey is where their June wedding will be so while we were there we did a venue walk-through as well and made a photo plan for the Big day!. What a great place, so many great photo spots. I can't wait to shoot their wedding there. and these two are soooo in love and we know the whole day is going to be beautiful and a total blast! Hershey Engagement Photography

NJ Family Photographer || Meet Shayna || BG Productions

The greatest compliment we can have as a wedding photographer is when our clients continue to use our services to capture their growing family. We loved capturing Lauren and Jordan's wedding, newborn pictures for Max, family photos, and now welcoming their newest little bundle of joy. Shayna is absolutely adorable. And what a great big brother Max is. We love capturing newborns and families in more of a lifestyle way. I think that tells a much more authentic story. And how cute is Max and his bed. What I ham!!!! LOL. I can't wait to watch Shayna grow up and capture more of her cuteness. Thank you Yaker or family for always being great supporters of  BG Productions and most importantly Great friends. NJ family photographer

Beautiful Cairnwood Estate Wedding Photos || Brittany + Matt || BG Productions

Check out these Gorgeous Cairnwood Estate Wedding photos. It was a Perfect day! Brittany and Matt met in College at the University of Delaware and were married on May 14, 2016 at the beautiful Cairnwood Estate outside of Philadelphia. It is one of the most beautiful Philadelphia wedding venues. The threat of rain hung all day but we were able to get beautiful portraits in before it all began. Unfortunately the ceremony had to be moved to inside but it didn't matter as it was such a beautiful and tender ceremony where they added some personal touches and inside jokes!

We wanted to make sure we were able to get portraits in before the rain so we arrived about 35 minutes prior to a contract and start time so we can get it in. We were even able to capture some drone footage!!

The Day begin with Brittany getting ready in the beautiful bridal room. That's one of the things I love about shooting at Cairnwood is all the really pretty rooms. Not to mention a great place to hang the wedding dress!

Brittany wore a gorgeous gown by Inbal Dror.   The way it flowed was stunning and she could even take off part of the dress for the reception. But the real stunner has to be that incredible corseted lace back. And of course Brittany was gorgeous in it. Her hair and makeup services were provided by Mack Stylist (all the girls looked amazing!) . Those beautiful flowers they all held were provided by Offshoots.

When Matt saw his beautiful bride during their first look , she took his breath away. He couldn't believe his eyes when he saw her. It was such a sweet moment and he got choked up. It's so obvious how in love they are. And talk about amazing photos. These two just melted into each other perfectly. A stunning backdrop with blue sky for a stunning couple. We were then joined by their wedding party. We had a blast capturing them. You never know what a wedding party will give you LOL

Even though their ceremony had to be moved inside it was still romantic and everything they hope for a they hoped for surrounded by friends and family. And the crew at Festivities didn't miss a beat by having to move the ceremony they even had a rain plan for all the vintage furniture from Maggpie. Everything looked great and we loved all the wood signs that Brittany and Matt made themselves. It is the personal touches that make the day so meaningful.

The rest of the night was spent having fun at cocktail hour and the reception. Thanks for the DJ skills from Synergetic Sounds the Dance floor was hopping all night long. Though we did manage to sneak away for a couple relaxing and fun night shots.

I know the couple of having a blast on there Italian honeymoon. I have loved seeing your Facebook posts. Enjoy and congratulations. Thanks for choosing the BG team to capture it all. and thanks to our great 2nd shooters Brian and James!! Y'all killed it!!

  • 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!!
