Rittenhouse Hotel Micro-Wedding, Philadelphia PA

This couple decided to tie the knot in a special way with an elegant hotel micro-wedding by the Mayor of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. I was so honored to be selected by Paul and Jerina as we clicked right away over our initial meeting.

They wanted to just be themselves in front of the camera since they rarely do portraits and were delighted to hear my approach. As someone who isn’t frequently in front of the camera myself, my approach is always to let my couples be who they are and capture their interactions and connections.

When people say they see so much joy and laughter in my photos, I tell them because they’re actually doing it. Whether it was because of a silly cue I gave or because I simply happened to be there at the right moment, I love capturing connections.

For me, poses can only do so much. Amazing for a classic, traditional approach but doesn’t really tell a story. I’m a storyteller. I want my pictures to do that. Flow, ebb, and unravel the day as seen through my eyes. I know, I know, how cheesy. But it’s true! That’s the best way I can describe my approach here when I attended their wedding in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Rittenhouse Hotel.

I was that fly on the wall (or at least on the floor) observing everything and trying my best to capture every little detail. Every little detail matters. From the watch to the wine glasses, they all play a part in shaping out the wedding day..
