Are you Wedding Shoe Crazy?

Are you Wedding Shoe Crazy?

I'm certainly not shoe crazy, but I've been accused of having a wedding shoe fetish, since I always take photos of the brides shoes.  I think the pair of wedding shoes a bride picks says a lot about who she is. A bride's shoes (in my experience) have always been a big deal to her.  The sad part is they usually get scratched and scuffed up and then they're never worn again; a single day of glorious beauty is the life of a wedding shoe.

Marie and Fred’s Engagement Photos on the UPenn Campus

The engagement photo session for Marie and Fred on the UPenn Campus was spectacular.  This is where they met while in school so the location held precious memories that we incorporated into their shots. We tried to take pictures in the classroom where they saw each other for the first time but unfortunately the door was locked and we were only able to take pictures outside of the classroom.
