Karen & Matt | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

Karen and Matt are both teachers and wanted a wedding that really reflected their personal style. They didn't want a big gala affair but with Karen being an art teacher she did want some personal flair. And I'm nothing if not a photographer with flair – a friend once described my hairstyle as an exclamation point on top of my personality. I take that as a cherished compliment.

Karen and Matt were the first person to book an event at the Artesano Iron Works gallery. It wasn't their first event but she was the first booking. Artesano is a gorgeous and unique gallery space in Manayunk. You can learn all about their Columbian artisans and their unique ironworks on their website. In a move that I found to be rather brave, they added a personal touch to each table with images of each other as kids. Most folks would stop before the awkward years but these guys went all in, pre-teen and all.

We started off the day at the twin that they share in Manayunk, walking to their neighborhood church before gathering at Artesano for an elegant evening capped off by some raucous dancing that made me question the stability of the second floor event space. No worries, solid as a rock.

LOVE THEM! I didn't want to stop looking at them! They are perfect....THANK YOU! Just as an FYI, your work has converted Matt as he was skeptical about putting a chunk of our wedding budget towards a photographer (nothing to do with you, just in general) After he saw the first round of images he thanked me for pushing to have you do the photos. He is transformed!
