Arts Ballroom Wedding PhotographyI am always charmed by flower girls, ring bearers, and the younger members of the bridal parties. At this 2012 wedding at the Arts Ballroom in Philadelphia the ceremony portion of the day took place at a nearby church. I arrived at the church with the bride and her bridesmaids and went looking for the groom and his groomsmen to document them hanging out before the ceremony began. I am always looking for moments and when I spotted this young flower girl sitting alone I knew that I had a sweet shot. I love how the light from the stained glass window is streaming perfectly onto her face and hair. I love the way she’s sitting. I love the crown of flowers in her hair. I also love that this image could have been taken this year or fifty years ago and will still have the same timeless appeal fifty years from now!
