Germantown Cricket Club Wedding || Activist Wedding Photos || Debby & Kenny
People find us for wedding photography in a variety of ways. Often through referrals, wedding blogs and sites and straight up Google searches. The way Debby and Kenny found us is probably my favorite. Last year a friend of mine was running for District Attorney of Philadelphia – Larry Krasner. At the election night celebration, I was taking photos as I had often for his campaign. Being able to provide photo and some video documentation of his campaign was a major way we contributed. It was through these photos that Debbie found me, which lead to us shooting her amazing Germantown Cricket Club wedding.
We love that’s so many in the BG family share our strong democratic and progressive ideals. We believe all people should be treated equally and fairly. And that it is all of our responsibilities to work towards that goal. So we were super excited to capture Debby and Kenny’s wedding at the Germantown Cricket Club on June 30. That date also was a day of major protests against Trumps immigration and separation of family policies that are happening. If we hadn’t been shooting a wedding, you would see us there protesting and documenting. And if Debby wasn’t getting married that day, she would be there holding a sign and protesting also. So it was very cool that her Maid of honor made a special sign for us to use during our photo sessions for activist wedding photos. It’s definitely a new take on the iconic “ Broad Street shot.”
Summer Philly Wedding
We began their day getting ready at the Sonesta on Market Street before heading to Rittenhouse Square for their first look and portraits. Philly was right in the middle of a heat wave and it really was VERY hot! But we stayed in the shade, moved slowly and made sure everyone was drinking enough water, very important. And by the time their outdoor ceremony began at the Germantown Cricket Club it was a little cooler, thank goodness!
The sweetest moment of the day was totally the father daughter dance. Debby’s dad had recently been admitted to the hospital and he got special permission to be able to attend the wedding. I’m telling you during that special dance there was NOT a dry eye in the house! Including my own! This was such an beautiful moment for everyone. The whole night was filled with love, laughter and a ton of dancing! We are so honored to have captured this Awesome wedding. And Huffpost Relationships shared their photos with their protest sign!! HOW COOL!!
