Tellur Marie Schillaci {Newborn}

I don’t claim to be a newborn photographer, but when one of my 2016 couples asked if I would photograph their coming babe in place of an engagement session, I was excited for the change of pace and to document this new little family.

Tellur Marie Schillaci was born to Kyle and Jenna at WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital on January 29th, barely missing Winter Storm Jonas. On another snowy day, 11 days after her birth, I met little Tellur. She may have only been 11 days old but she was already bursting with energy. The cutest little thing, with a head full of hair and bright, big eyes.

It is always such an honor and a privilege to be able to document a growing family and I count myself extremely blessed to be welcomed into homes to do just that.

Now we have June to look forward to! Kyle and Jenna will wed at the beautiful Bear Mill Estate in Denver, Pennsylvania and I hear they will have the cutest little flower girl in all the land.

Stephen & Hope {Engaged}

“We were together.
I forget the rest.”

I was extremely excited to spend the afternoon with Hope and Stephen on a seasonally warm winter day. The sun was shining brightly taking care of the last few piles of the blizzard that tore through Philadelphia just two short weeks ago.

The two have a contagious joy about them. They giggle constantly and have a sense of ease about who they are. They are comfortable in their own skin and have matching vivacious personalities. It isn’t a surprise that their favorite thing about one another is their passion for life. We spent the afternoon strolling through the streets of Old City Philadelphia, hunting down colorful murals and dancing in the alley ways.

The two met through mutual friends at Penn State and soon after played soccer together on an intramural team. Their first date was precious, beginning with a trail run, rock climbing and a steak dinner to top off the evening. It is that love of the outdoors that has brought them even closer, frequently finding fun date nights both indoor and out. Stephen plans to surprise Hope with another fun adventure for Valentines day, attempting to top their last year’s trip to the circus.

The two will wed this coming June at Brasenhill Mansion in Lebanon, PA and I am so excited for their day!

Brad & Ferney {Engaged}

“True love cannot be contained by borders; it penetrates miles, zip codes and state lines.”

14The countdown is on! Just over a month till Brad & Ferney celebrate their marriage among friends and family at the beautiful John Wright restaurant in Wrightsville, PA.

The two met online. Their first meeting was one from a movie love story. Brad hopped in a plane and travelled over 1,000 miles to finally meet Ferney face to face. They got to know one another, Brad met her family and the two spent time soaking in the culture and local cuisine from Santo Domingo.

I asked Brad about their styles and he perfectly described it; the 2015 version of Green Acres. Ferney has an uptown flair while Brad borderlines redneck (his words :) ). But it absolutely works.

We can’t wait for this winter celebration!

Best of 2015 {Weddings & Engagements} – Year in Review

I am filled with gratitude as I sit down and try to put into words the beautiful chaos of 2015. The 80 hour work weeks, endless hours in the car and editing till my eyeballs wanted to fall out, really is worth it when I reflect on a year gone by. I am so grateful for each and every couple that trusted us to capture their love story.

In 2015 we photographed 30 weddings, survived hair being caught on fire, an emergency exit from a reception due to flooding, worked alongside some amazing vendors and were introduced to over a dozen new venues.

Tessa had her first full year at Main Line Today; an upscale lifestyle magazine that covers the Main Line of Philadelphia.

Jenessa had her first full year as a second photographer and office editor, shooting her very first solo wedding in September. She became a Mrs. in April and is expecting a baby girl this coming May.

Looking forward to 2016, we are fully booked at 30 weddings (but opened up two more slots) and will be moving studios next month. A new addition will be added to the Tessa Marie Images team in May (more details to come). Lots of exciting things will be coming your way in the near future, you will not want to miss it!

Here is a look at our top 55 images from 2015. Enjoy!

Greg & Wendy {Wedding}

We loved with a love that was more than love. -Edgar Allan Poe
G&W-42
Greg and Wendy are a pair that exude much more than love. They have an obvious and deep respect for one another and their pasts, and a joyous hope for their bright new future ahead.

This Jersey winter wedding was a beautiful way to kick off the 2016 wedding season! Dripping with poinsettias and candlelight, and speckled with all things cheetah, guests donning black tie with a splash of red; it was a wedding filled with character and lots of celebration- every detail carefully and perfectly planned by this proud wife to be.

Despite the freezing cold, Greg and Wendy’s first look was a favorite- all of Greg’s nervousness melting away in the tender embrace of his beautiful bride. And every moment after that flowed with ease as the pair lost themselves in the sheer joy of what was taking place this January day.

There were twinkling lights and heartfelt speeches, tears shed, and kisses stolen as this celebration continued into the night. The new Mr. And Mrs. Bodnaruk in the center of it all. Thank you, Greg and Wendy for inviting us to take part in your special day! Best wishes for all of your days ahead!
