Union League Philadelphia Wedding PhotographerI love the relationships that I get to witness when documenting weddings. I first met the bride in this photograph when I shot her sister’s wedding in 2009. Many of the vendors reunited five years later for the little sister of the bride’s wedding in 2014. Floral design was provided by the stellar team at Lamsback Floral Decorators. They always do such an innovative job and their work is full of sweetness and elegance. The videographer was Tim Sudall of Allure Films, one of my favorite Philadelphia-based videographers to work with. We have very complimentary styles and it is always a pleasure to work alongside Tim. Both sisters were married in Philadelphia’s gorgeous Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, and both weddings were perfectly coordinated by Lynda Barness of I Do Wedding Consulting. We were at the Ritz Carlton for the 2009 wedding but this 2014 wedding was hosted by the exceptional Union League of Philadelphia. In this image the bride was getting ready and was joined at the window by her sweet niece, the daughter of the bride’s sister. I love the delicacy of the moment between the bride and the flower girl. I love the light pouring in from the window. Most of all I love the relationship that I have built with this family and it’s been a joy to work with them throughout the years!
