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.

New Year’s Eve Wedding

New Year’s Eve Wedding in Philadelphia

Who? : Becca + Hal

What? : Nighttime indoor ceremony and ballroom reception at Philadelphia’s The Logan Hotel (formerly the Philadelphia Four Seasons)

Where? : The Logan

When? : December 2017

If you want to throw a killer party for your family and closest friends, what is the best day of the year to ensure that party atmosphere?  New Year’s Eve, of course!  Every time I shoot a New Year’s Eve wedding I always end up documenting one of the best parties of the year.

I have adored Becca since our first communication (set up by her magnificent wedding planner, Gina).  We talked all things theatre, hit it off immediately, and I just knew that was the beginning of an excellent relationship.  After meeting Hal at their Philadelphia engagement session, it was evident that this couple was a spectacular one.

Becca and Hal chose to celebrate their marriage at Philadelphia’s beautiful Logan Hotel.  Despite the weather being in single digits, it was warm and inviting inside.  The ceremony took place under a beautifully illuminated chuppah, and then the party moved into the iconic Logan ballroom for hours of dinner, toasts, and dancing.

Becca and Hal, thank you for having me at one of the wildest parties of 2017!  It’s always an honor to ring in the new year at a wedding, and it’s extra special when clients are as marvelous as you two!

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