Styled Session Merrion Station PA
Let me tell you, ladies and gentlemen! This has to be one of the BEST styled sessions I have done to date, and the talent amongst the team we put together is some of the best in New Jersey. The Merrion Tribute House Styled Session was absolutely incredible!! It was elegant, luxurious, and a ton of fun! Our models for the day were three great friends of ours, and they absolutely rocked it. Styled Session Merrion Station PA
Our female models were Kate Fehn & Merry Collins, and our male model was Anthony Tirri. The florals were by Twisted Willow Flowers. The hair and make-up were done by my perfect friend Leann Magrone from BeautyFX. Dresses are From Castle Couture, Jenny Yoo, and Monique Lhuillier. Styled Session Merrion Station PA
Everything we did from start to finished was absolute perfection. We have SO much content from this amazing session. We most definitely got shorted on time because the venue didn’t want to let us shoot there in the first place! Teresa had to pull some serious strings to get us in with the venue and shoot there.

But we are grateful that they allowed us to shoot and capture the essence of their venue. The Merrion is small. You can cover the entire venue for a portrait session in about 45 minutes to an hour. Styled shoots are amongst my favorite types of shoots to do. It takes a TON of planning and can be very time-consuming. Styled Session Merrion Station PA
Coordinating with vendors is the best part because you can network and build relationships with amazing and talented people. It’s an enjoyable process.
We started with Kate as a solo bride. She looked absolutely stunning. The lighting was perfect yesterday, and we had such key spots to work with amongst all the areas.
When I did a walkthrough, I was able to see every angle of light and the best spots to pose Kate, Merry, and Anthony. It was straightforward to find a spot to shoot.
If you’re looking for a tiny and Old English style venue, this is without a doubt the venue to book for your wedding in PA. Styled Session Merrion Station PA
We had Anthony pose with Kate and Merry. We mainly had him posing with Merry but throwing him some shots with Kate added some real wedding shots to the final gallery.
When I shoot at venues, I try to find unique shots that photographers wouldn’t do when shooting. When I can use a mirror or a window, I take advantage of the opportunity because it is unique and different.
That is one thing about styled sessions and showcase the venue; find spots that haven’t been used or aren’t used often. Venues like that and allows for a better experience for them in the end.
Merry’s two looks were stunning, and I love the direction we decided to go for her. It was elegant and simple. The colors of her flowers and the dress went really well with Anthony’s color of his suit. It worked so well, and I am very excited about how the images came out. Styled Session Merrion Station PA
We made a look change for both the girls and put them in something bolder. We changed the color of Merry’s dress as well as the entire look for Kate.
Leann put her hair down, and we changed her into a black dress. Even though we were crunched on time, it still made a world of difference having multiple looks for both girls.
It was an absolute blast shooting this amazing styled session, and I cannot wait for Chicago! We are heading out there in June to do another amazing session at Montrose Harbor!
