American Swedish Historical Museum Wedding | Philadelphia Documentary Wedding Photographer

Kate and Ben’s wedding will forever hold a special place in my heart. Their day began at the Renaissance Downtown Hotel in Philadelphia. They spent the early afternoon getting ready with their family and friends, sharing gifts and champagne, and ended with a surprise visit to Grandmom in her hotel room before heading out for portraits.

Philadelphia has plenty to offer in terms of portrait locations and it was so nice to be able to travel around with such a fun bridal party and take advantage of so many beautiful locations. From the grounds of the Second Bank, to Washington Square, and finally FDR park and the American Swedish Historical Museum, this crew rocked them all.

It’s not news to anyone that I can be quite emotional. It’s already an honor to be present on someone’s wedding day knowing I’m giving them images of moments they will relive forever, but truly connecting with my couples makes it that much more special to me and it’s that connection and level of comfort that allows magic to happen. I know I might sound like a broken record but I LOVE MY JOB.

Picture time!
