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!

At our high school reunion, Nicole told me that she wanted me to photograph her wedding.  She didn’t have the guy yet but she wanted me to be the one behind the camera.  I was flattered but assumed she’d forget by the time it rolled around.  Lo and behold, Nicole met Michael soon after and I heard from Nicole earlier this year to let me know that it was go time!  I was thrilled!  The Nicole I remembered was popular, beautiful, intelligent, humble, and kind.  You couldn’t not like Nicole.  I’m happy to say that she’s still the same.  It was an overcast day in the high 60s and practically perfect ...

Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Angela + Davide
Angela made one thing clear to me before the wedding day: “We’re all Italian so it will be loud.”  I was looking forward to it! There were so many creatively beautiful touches that day.  I had an inkling that might happen when I met with them months ago for their coffee shop engagement session and then received their 3D save-the-date. The fingertip length veil that Angela wore was created from her mother’s own cathedral length veil. There were a few things to worry about (like the dog sitter who never showed for their two doxies) but solutions were found and there was so much calm once Angela and Davide did their first loo ...
