I’m so excited and am very grateful for all the hearts received. Thanks, JMcnallyDesigns for “Mad Girl’s Love Song!”

I fancied you’d return the way you said,

but I grow old and I forget your name.

I think I made you up inside my head.

A Wedding & New Year’s in St. Louis :: Philadelphia event photographer https://www.katemcgovernphoto.com/blog/2012/3/A-Wedding-New-Year-s-in-St-Louis-Philadelphia-event-photographer-1 My college roommate, Katie, was recently married in St. Louis, Missouri and I was honored to be one of her bridesmaids. I was there for five days with Almost-Husband (as Steve is now called thanks to my 10-year-old brother describing being engaged as being “almost married”) and we managed to fit in a whirlwind tour of every microbrewery we could find. Katie and her family ended the long weekend with a New Year’s Eve party for those of us left in town.

Steve and I had a great time and even managed to sneak in a trip to the arch. (Yes, it’s touristy, but I couldn’t resist the photo op. It’s the furthest west I’ve ever been!)

Because Katie had only hired a photographer for the wedding and reception, she asked me to handle her “getting ready” shots and to cover the New Year’s party. (Again, honored.) Below is a sampling of that week. So much fun!

My wedding shoes! Swoon… https://www.katemcgovernphoto.com/blog/2011/12/My-wedding-shoes-Swoon

I’m so excited to wear these babies for my wedding!

Assuming this foot is all healed up, of course. This nasty accident had me on crutches for the first half of this year and now I’m back on them thanks to some surgery over Thanksgiving. Because I can’t try the shoes on yet, I’m relegated to photographing them.

Sigh …

Cross your fingers that this foot will be stiletto-ready soon!

Brought this little guy home last weekend and my camera hasn’t gotten any rest since! This is Reilly, our West Highland White Terrier. He’s four months old, weighs a whopping seven pounds and spends his days exploring his new surroundings. He’s a friendly, sweet and very curious puppy!

RAW comes to Philly https://www.katemcgovernphoto.com/blog/2011/10/RAW-comes-to-Philly

My cousin, Kelly McGovern, participated in a RAW artists event last week. One of her installations was featured and she helped out by modeling a friend’s work. The event, “Pulse,” was held at G Lounge in center city. Lots of fun but very difficult to shoot; I definitely need to try a fashion show again! Anyway, check out the rest of Kelly’s work here.

Shooting around Manayunk https://www.katemcgovernphoto.com/blog/2011/10/Shooting-around-Manayunk St. John the Baptist of Manayunk I made a few stops in Manayunk this weekend to grab some shots for my wedding blog and the wedding website. We’ll be getting married at St. John the Baptist of Manayunk and walking down the street to our reception at the brewery. Manayunk is a cramped area so my regular lenses weren’t going to cut it. Finally a chance to break out my new fisheye adapter from Photojojo! I haven’t much of a chance to learn about this fisheye lens alternative so I’m not exactly sure how to best employ it yet, but I certainly had fun testing it out. Man, I want everything on Photojojo.

It’s home brewing day here in Philly! Fiance Steve is working on a hex nut brown ale; in this photo, he had just finished steeping the grains. We still have some Mexican cerveza left from last time, but it’s time to get another batch fermenting!

We’ve been having some pretty crazy weather here on the east coast this summer. While the earthquake didn’t provide many photo ops, the week leading up to and following Hurricane Irene had me perched on the windowsill waiting to capture this.
