Where to begin? Well for starters, Mike and Kelsey are awesome. Although they currently reside in Austin, TX, it was important to them that they return to their roots in Philadelphia to get married. We first met up with them over the summer at Fairmount Park to shoot some scenes before the big day. Aside from the picturesque mix of urban and nature scenery, we got to capture other magic that came from their intimate way with each other!
Flash forward to September 2015. The entire wedding day took place at the Loews Hotel and that was totally ok with us – what a classy establishment! The sleek, elegant look of this place made for a great backdrop in the film. It was even close enough to take a little stroll to Love Park for Mike and Kelsey’s first look and wedding party photos. We captured everything from city streets to Philly skylines. I mean this quite literally – we even shot in front of the PSFS sign on top of the building!
A major shout out goes out to Jared for being such an amazing photographer to work with. Check out his work at www.jaredhamptonthomas.carbonmade.com! Also, props to the live band Touche for playing a killer set and rockin’ the party all night!
Mike and Kelsey, we’re so happy for you! Congratulations on a beautiful wedding and such a strong connection with each other. We had a great time hanging out and partying with you and your wonderful family!
