The Merion Spring Wedding | Jess & Justin

Sometimes, you find the right person at the wrong time.
At a Christmas party in 2015, Jess was in a relationship with the wrong person but met Justin at that party. After that relationship ended in 2017, Jess made the first move and reached out to Justin on social media. That message led to an inseparable bond between them!

A memory from Jess's perspective:
"We went to Ocean Casino for Valentine's Day weekend and had a great dinner. For whatever reason I woke up at 7:30 in the morning the next morning (Justin was not expecting this). We were on the top floor at the hotel and he was looking out the window he came over to me after grabbing me a bottle of water and sat on the bed and showed me a picture he has printed.

It was the picture of the ocean, the pier, my name and his, and the date 11/19/2007.

Justin said 'I know we never had a real anniversary because this just came about. We grew closer and closer but this day on the card stands out to me because it is the day I knew I wanted to be with you forever. My dad was in the hospital and I couldn't stop thinking of you and talking about you, I knew that day would forever stay with me but today is the day that you will always remember.' And he asked me to marry him.

I cried and cried. I was in shock. I tried to call everyone in my family but since it was so early no one was answering the phone because they didn't think it was going to happen until later that morning at brunch. Finally my brother in law answered the phone haha!"

A big thank you to Jess and Justin for trusting us to capture this amazing time in your lives and for being such a pleasure to be with!!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day:

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!

"Where do I even start...everything was amazing with Ralph! We have such beautiful images from our special day because of Ralph! He took the time to get to know us and know what we wanted from our photos. We didn't have a videographer so it was important to us to have the day captured with photos and that is exactly what we got with Ralph. The images were amazing and working with Ralph and his team was amazing. Highly recommend him for all of your photo needs and hopefully one day soon he can capture our family photos!"
