I had no idea that I'd become a Philadelphia wedding photographer when I moved to New York in 2008.
Shortly after my move to Brooklyn, I started spending time in Philadelphia. I was dating a guy who lived there, and I'd make trips into the city to see him for a day here, a weekend there. We'd drive into the city for dinners, long Sunday afternoons at Reading Terminal, walks in Washington Square Park, dinners at Talula's Garden, brunch at the old Four Seasons at Logan Circle.
As my Philly-based boyfriend was also a wedding photographer, he'd refer clients my way if he was booked for their date. I was busy building my New York-based business, working to spread my referral network into New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Long Island, and the surrounding areas. Each wedding that he referred to me in Philadelphia only served to deepen my already-growing love for the city.
I started loving photographing in Philadelphia so much that I created a page on my website for photography locations that I loved in the city. I started having favorite places to photograph, favorite venues, and a list of vendors that I loved collaborating with.
Philadelphia is a wonderful city. It's also a beautiful place to get married. In fact, my then-boyfriend and now-husband and I love it there so much that we chose to get married there, and I spend part of my time in our home in Cherry Hill (though I spend most of my time in Brooklyn, and my studio is based here).
Amongst the many, many reasons to get married in Philly, here are just a few:
