    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.

Comics and Doctor Who Wedding at the Curtis Center Philadelphia || Aja + Brian || BG Productions

Sometimes you meet a couple and you just know they're a perfect match. When Aja and Brian contacted us about their comics and Doctor Who wedding at the Atrium at the Curtis Center we knew they were the perfect BG couple. Being big lovers of comic books and Doctor Who we totally bonded over our geekiness and proud Geekster status at their engagement session this past fall. See it here. Aja got ready at her house in Trenton and she looked absolutely amazing. Her dress was the perfect fit and she looked like a beautiful queen. We met up with Brian and the guys at their church for the ceremony. Their ceremony was filled with a lot of fun antidotes about them and you could see how truly in love they are. The two of them just kept beaming and smiling at each other in the whole ceremony.

After the ceremony we stopped at a park to get a few photos of just the couple. They were hoping we would be able to capture the Trenton Bridge since there was an ice sculpture on the bridge, but it was a very hazy day. We were actually lucky it wasn't already raining. It did rain on us a bit while we were doing all the bridal party photos at the Second national Bank in historic District of Philadelphia so we had to cut it a little bit short. But even a little rain couldn't get this couple down. Together with their bridal party we just kept laughing and having fun.

The reception at the Curtis Center was stunning. I loved the mix of the fun comic books and Doctor Who theme with the elegance and beauty of the Curtis Center. It was such the perfect blend. And oh that cake! It's called a "reveal cake". The front side looks all normal like a pretty wedding cake and on the backside was something fun to reflect the couple. So later in the night when the cake was turned the guests had a really cool surprise!!  It was all about the little details that really made everything is so cute. I love the card box that Brian and his dad built to look like the Tardis. And the favors were different comic book character USBs. Not only cute but practical as well. We got to take home a Captain American minion and the Punisher favors!! How perfect!. And this was certainly a dance crown. The party went well into the night and I'm sure after we left the fun continued.

And thanks to our awesome possum second and third shooters Matt and Hedi, you did a Fantastic job!!!

We are so thrilled we got to capture this awesome wedding. We know Aja and Brian are going to have a lifetime of fun adventure together!

We love capturing weddings at private residences!! And what a Beautiful Bucks County Wedding Ana and Adam had. Everything about this wedding was stunning and super fun as well! What a Great combo!!! The wedding was held at the groom's parents house in Bucks County, and was beautifully captured by our fantastic Lead Associate Shooters Jen and Matt.

We were thrilled to be referred by Elegant Events to photograph such a unique wedding filled with lots of cool details! I mean how cool is it that their "favors" were the actual camo chairs guests sat in during the ceremony! And we have never had a couple who had skeet shooting as part of their Big day!! Love it!!! And of course at the end of the day they all changed and got into the pool. This is a perfect wedding!! The couple was surrounded by family and friends and totally let their personalities shine through. Every detail was a part of who they are and Elegant Events did a wonderful job bringing it all together! and OMG!! how Gorgeous is Ana- and that dress! Totally swoon worthy!!

Same Sex Beach Haven NJ Wedding || Jesse + Nicole || BG Productions

We Loved capturing this Awesomely sweet, laid back Same Sex Beach Haven NJ Wedding! This one was extra special because this is the 3rd shoot we have had with Jesse and Nicole. We first captured their Philly engagement session as well as photos in Central Park after their NY ceremony. You can see those sessions here.

We were super psyched when they contacted us about capturing their full wedding and reception party!  They are such a great couple and its always fun to capture folks multiple times. This wedding was Perfect! One of the top weddings for sure. The weather was Amazing. They rented a house in Beach Haven and had their ceremony there- so cute!! They both got ready there before their first look and then photos on the beach. We were so thankful for the high sand dune that made it look like no one was even there! That was the furthest from the truth! As soon as went went over it you could see how packed the beach was! It was so fun walking through everyone as we went to the water. People we all clapping and congratulating them- so sweet!

Jesse and Nicole's ceremony was perfect and I loved how Bella (their dog) just sat right there with them. Guests enjoyed some food, drinks, and lawn games while we finished up family photos before heading over tho their reception venue- The Gables.  OMG- what a perfect venue. Working with Sandy was so easy and she was so nice to work with. It is always appreciated when venues and caterers treat us nicely!  and the food was Awesome!! Folks enjoyed dancing on the back patio. Everyone was having a blast- it was so easy to see the love everyone has for Jesse and Nicole.

We are so blessed to work with such awesome couples. and Jesse and Nicole have a special place in our hearts!

We worked with some great vendors

Talamore Country Club Wedding Photos || Courtney + Sean || BG Productions Photos + Video

One of the sweetest BG couples got married on June 25 and it was so fun catching their Talamore Country Club Wedding Photos. Courtney and Sean are so sweet and adorable. We were so thrilled that their day was so beautiful out and we were able to capture so much of their love. We knew we were going to have fun with them because we had such a great time seeing their engagement session. You can view that here.

We began our day with Courtney getting dressed at her parents house. Her mom and dad are so awesome and they had such a beautiful backyard. I'm glad we had enough time to get out there for a bit for some photos with their dogs, who even posed for us for a few! And of course you know I love playing with dogs! Our awesome second team begin their day with Sean and his groomsmen. They only had a short time before the guys left for the church but they were able to capture some great moments at the house and then before everyone arrived at the church. The couple was married at St. Dorothy's in Drexel Hill.  Their priest was great. I loved how he personalized everything and even added in some funny moments. We only got a few photos at the church but one of my favorite of the day is the couple standing outside by the pillars having a quick kiss.

We knew we wanted time to do the majority of the photos at their reception venue, Talamore Country Club. We have done several weddings here and always have a great time and get awesome photos. The staff does a fantastic job of taking care of everyone and they have some really pretty grounds. It's nice to know a venue and be familiar with it and know that everything will run smoothly.  And they are soooo nice to vendors!! What a difference that makes!

Everything looked so beautiful and everything was in-bloom. Of course we were there at the hottest part of the day LOL!! But we still had a blast catching some gorgeous photos and video. And it's just so easy with these two. They're so laid-back and so in love, capturing their day was not even like working at all. I think one of the highlights of Sean's day was driving Courtney around in the golf cart. And of course it made for some great candid moments!!

Thanks to all the awesome vendors we worked with who came together to make this a gorgeous wedding. And thanks to our awesome possum second team-Melanie and Greg, you did a Fantastic job!!!

    Peggy Wagner - I love all the pictures they really show the love that Sean and Courtney have for each other. I really like the picture of Sean and Courtney that Courtney has her hand on her hips , it makes me laugh every time I see it.

    Kim O'Neill - I love all of the photos, they really express how beautiful Sean and Courtney’s perfect day was!!! But there is one photo that I love the most.

    Alissa O'Neill - It is so hard to pick a favorite picture because they are all so great! But the picture that I like the most is above the picture of Courtney and the photographer with their thumbs up, it is the first one to the left, I love the way Courtney and Sean are looking at one another!

  • July 20, 2016 - 11:14 pm

    Dama Wagner - Cat and Al, you captured so many specials moments that we’ll look back on for years to come. My favorite is hands down Courtney and Sean sitting at the bottom of the staircase leaning in to one another. It truly captures the joy, happiness and love they have for one another. So nice spending the day with your crew, your work is amazing. Thanks!

  • July 21, 2016 - 8:22 am

    Nicole Myers - I LOVE all of them!!! It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I really love the ones of Courtney and Sean in the golf carts, looks like they’re having fun! And the ones under it with the trees behind them are beautiful!

  • July 21, 2016 - 9:28 am

    Tammy Wicher - All of the pictures couldn’t have turned out more perfectly! I especially love the one of Courtney looking at Sean with her hand on her hip and both of them laughing. That picture really shows how much fun they have with each other and how much love they have for one another. Great pic!!!

Rose Bank Winery Wedding Photos || Jess+ Shawn || BG Productions Photos + Video

Wow! Talk about the most perfect weather and location for an outdoor wedding. We captured some amazing Rose Bank Winery wedding photos of Jess and Shawn on June 24!!! You may remember them from their super cute engagement session. The Rose Bank Winery is an Awesome place for wedding photos! I mean they have goats - how could it not be awesome?! And it was so cute after Jess and Shawn had their first look and we were over by the goats and one of them tried to eat her bouquet- so funny!

Jess and her girls began their day at the Homewood Suites. Al and I stopped in for a bit to get some early getting ready shots before they got dressed at the venue. And she looked Amazing. Jen and Brian met up with Shawn and his guys at Rose Bank in Newtown PA. Once they were both at the venue and dressed we were able to do their first look and then just walk around capturing their love and personalities!! Their go-with-the flow-attitude and Absolute Love for each other made for some pretty great photos and video. Add in a fun and easy to work with wedding party, and TONS of amazing emotional moments caught through out the day and we have a Perfect wedding to capture!

Their ceremony was so personal. They spoke from the heart and said so many sweet things! Of course we loved the Star Wars and Doctor Who references!! And that blue sky with fluffy white clouds above the grape vines was the Perfect ceremony backdrop.

Jess and Shawn worked with a great list of vendors that really made their day beautiful and be a day they will never forget. Thanks To our Awesome Possum 2nd shooters- Jen Cleary on photos and Brian Davidson on video!

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!!
