Hiring a wedding coordinator is never a bad idea. Wedding coordinators are not a splurge. Hiring a planner will be one of the best investments in time and your sanity before and during the wedding day. Without a coordinator you are the one that will have to answer the thousands of questions about your wedding.

Team

This is us! These are the faces behind the e-mails and on the other end of the phone. We are a friendly, outgoing (and sometimes goofy) crew of story tellers. We enjoy working in partnership with our clients to create heartfelt, beautiful images and movies that will be treasured by family and friends for generations to come. Our easy-going, approachable manner helps to create a welcoming atmosphere which allows one’s true self to be captured authentically and naturally through the camera’s lens.

Take a look below and get to know us a bit!

Pete Malone

I am the owner and lead photographer at Two17 Photo & Cinema. I’ve been shooting weddings professionally since 2004 and I still get excited and nervous for each and every shoot. I absolutely love what I do because I genuinely enjoy working with and getting to know all sorts of different people. I really was made to do this job! As cheesy as it may sound, I love capturing and freezing moments in time. I am endlessly photographing my own family in an effort to try to preserve each moment and subtle feeling of the various phases of our lives. Take a look for yourself over at my personal photo blog.

My wife Dawn and I have been close friends since meeting in our 7th grade homeroom. She was alphabetically seated behind me for every morning of that year. I am Malone and she is (still) a Martesi….a fact that is fun to bring up very once in a while to my mother in-law who gets ever so slightly annoyed with Dawn for keeping her maiden name. Dawn and I have two little ones and three cats at home. Not a day goes by that I don’t realize just how lucky I am to be married to my best friend. She is a wonderful partner, the world’s best mother and one of the most compassionate, caring and inspiring middle school teachers in the country. I am one lucky guy, that’s for sure.

When enjoying time off you can find our kids playing mermaids or Star Wars with each other, the cats clawing all our furniture, Dawn re-organizing the entire kitchen (again) and me wondering where all the utensils just went. It’s fun.

Caroline

Caroline, one of our lead photographers, is also our in house album design guru. After Caroline has worked her magic while photographing your wedding she remains in the driver's seat as she is the one who will edit your photos, create a completely custom dream album design and walk you through the album layout and customization process at your one on one meeting. Caroline is well know in the Philadelphia photography community as someone who is a pleasure to spend time with and easy to laugh with. Originally from Houston, Texas, Caroline is a graduate of Drexel's photography program and now lives in Bridgeport with her boyfriend and their two cats. 

Tom

Tom is one of our lead photographers and our go to 2nd shooter. I photographed Tom and his wife, Kate’s wedding in 2014. Almost a year later we ran into each other at their friend’s wedding where Tom asked if we needed any help. He has been photographing weddings, engagements and family sessions with us ever since. Tom’s background as a newspaper photojournalist has given him a great eye for natural and candid moments that are all too often overlooked. He is a naturally gifted photographer with a wonderful sense for composing and creating a perfect image. During the week Tom works in Philadelphia as an emergency room medical tech. So if there is any sort of medical emergency on your shoot definitely don’t look to me...Tom is your guy.

Jordan

A true nerd/jock hybrid, Jordan is obsessed with all things video and hockey. He even went so far as to begin his career in video production working within the Wells Fargo Center around Flyers Hockey, officially merging both sides of the nerd/jock spectrum. Asking him to talk at length about anything else however is a farfetched objective, as he is typically a man of few words. When he does speak, you can expect a heavy dose of sarcasm, his 2nd native language. So you might be asking, why weddings? While they have nothing to do with sports, Jordan believes in surrounding himself with positivity, and weddings are a great way to find laughter and happiness in a world that is far from perfect. Being able to preserve someone’s happiest moments and turn them into an everlasting memory is something that simply cannot be rivaled.
