Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Philadelphia City Hall | Anna + Nick

Wedding

I was so honored to be able to photograph Anna and Nick’s wedding a few weeks ago at Philadelphia City Hall. The short, intimate ceremony started a bit late but was nonetheless beautiful and surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Anna and Nick have been together since high school (over 11 years) and have finally decided to tie the knot. He proposed on his birthday (Mother’s Day coincidentally) as they were out camping. Anna tells it as he had many opportunities with great, romantic views but he popped the question by a porta potty. I kinda think that makes for a far better story.

Anna contacted me and knew that there was one picture that she absolutely wanted – the one in the incredible stairwells of City Hall.

I couldn’t help but capture a few more while we were there. She looked incredible in that long, flowing gown.

Back in the waiting room, we laughed and patiently anticipated the ceremony.

We went outside for some classic Philly shots. She didn’t want LOVE Park but you just can’t resist the beauty of Broad Street. (Hint: spot the pooch.)

We looped around back to City Hall for some more of just the two of them.

They were just wonderful and I can’t wait to hear all about the next exciting thing from this family: the arrival of little Nicholas due this Christmas (Nicholas’ mother’s birthday). So many congratulations, you two!

Hooray California!
In case you've been living in a cave recently, I want to alert you to an amazing development in California's marriage history*: the legalization of gay marriage!Oh, California, how I love you!About 2 hours ago, Mayor Gavin Newsom officiated the ceremony of two eighty-something women who had been together for 54 years! Tomorrow will be even more spectacular as same-sex couples will be crowding into city hall for their turn to wed.Without getting too political (too late for that, Lindsay!) it's clear to me that love is love. Marriage is for those who are committed to one another. Period. And to have the legal backing to assert that right is ...

Perkasie Wedding Photographer | Jen + Casey
I dare you to find me a bride with more expressions than Jen. Jen and Casey’s wedding was phenomenal. It was held at her parent’s house in Perkasie, PA where her other two sisters had been married as well. The place looked incredible and the day was gorgeous. More than anything, though, was the happiness that surrounded everyone that day. I’m pretty sure that a map of the area would have shown a warm bubble of love and bliss centered directly over this "backyard wedding". I can’t even count the number of times I heard Jen say, “I’m so happy!”. Now that’s a good wedding!  (By the way, you've seen them before from their 30th Street ...
