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.

Wedding at Union Trust in Philadelphia

Wedding at Union Trust in Philadelphia

Who? : Stephanie + Nickolas

What? : Outdoor wedding ceremony, portraits around historic Philadelphia, and a reception inside a renovated bank

Where? :  Hotel Monaco, the Powel House, and Union Trust.

When? : June 2018

Clearly this summer is “photograph lots of weddings in renovated old banks” month!  From Capitale to Cipriani and now over to Philadelphia’s Union Trust, it’s been a gorgeous month of soaring ceilings, expansive spaces, and excellent renovations!  Stephanie and Nickolas had a day that was pure Philadelphia joy from start to finish.  From their preparations in the popular Hotel Monaco to the gorgeous outdoor Greek ceremony at the Powel House, their charming indoor portraits at Powel surrounded by beautiful old architecture to their outdoor portraits around classic Philadelphia landmarks, ending at their reception inside the iconic Union Trust building, the entire day was full of history, sunshine, and sweetness.

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