A Phillipsburg Elks Lodge and Country Club Wedding, Phillipsburg PA At every wedding, I see all kinds of family dynamics. Close families, hugging families, more serious families, long distance families, etc. Every now and then, I am welcomed into a family dynamic on the wedding day that leaves a lasting impression and that is most […]

For several years now we have made it a priority to schedule our family photos during vacation.
