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!

Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer | Bear Creek Mountain Resort | Julie & Chuck
Julie and Chuck are nontraditional. They’re about as low key as you can get while still throwing a gorgeous wedding. They chose Bear Creek Mountain Resort for their wedding venue since the two of them go snowboarding there all the time. It was raining all week leading up to the wedding but that day was beautiful – sun and stunning blue skies. You might remember these two from their beachy engagement pictures from Ocean City, MD. We got the shore and the mountains represented.They saw each other long before the ceremony that day and they were a-okay with that. We did do a first look for Chuck’s first time seeing Julie in the dress.  ...

Brianne + Scott’s wedding at Pen Ryn Mansion
I hardly know where to begin with Bree and Scott. This is the gorgeous couple I shot at Longwood Gardens back in March for their engagement session. They celebrated their wedding at Pen Ryn Mansion in Bensalem, PA, about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia, on a perfect day in October. It was sunny and 70 degrees after several days of miserable rain and temperatures in the mid 50s. The breeze coming off the Delaware River was just right. The guys got ready down the street while the ladies had the run of the mansion. Bree looked incredible. Her ballgown from Ashley's Bridal Couture had intricate beading and Belle-type pickups. ...
