I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless.

Cescaphe Philadelphia Wedding

Cescaphe Philadelphia Wedding

Who? : Tommy + Abby

What? : Indoor ceremony and reception with portraits in Washington Square Park

Where? : Cescaphe Philadelphia

When? : December 2017

Winter weddings are always cause for planning, planning, and planning some more.  What if it snows?  What if bad weather makes it difficult for your guests to arrive?  What if it’s too cold to go outside for portraits?  What if?  What if?  Abby and Tommy planned perfectly, and got the best kind of winter wedding : meticulously designed, impeccably executed, and with the most flawless coating of snow on the ground for spectacular outdoor portraits.  It’s always a delight to collaborate with the team at Cescaphe Philadelphia wedding team, and it was so beautiful to see Abby and Tommy’s day come together.  From the deeply personal Amish wedding ceremony to the floral cannon showering the couple during their first dance, the emotion and design of the day were first rate.  It was an honor to witness the love this family has for each other, and an honor to create these images for such spectacular people!

Here are just a few of my favorite images of the day:
