Same Sex PAFA Wedding Photos | Dustin & Andy

WOW – Taking Dustin and Andy’s same sex PAFA wedding photos was AMAZING! Just look at these two and their fabulous suits, they were dressed to impress for sure. We first met these two love birds at our walk-through meeting with them. That’s something we make a priority if possible, to check out their venue and talk about the type of photos they would like.

Their day started off with the two of them getting ready together in their home with their dog Whoppi. What a darling dog, and we just love it when pets can join in their human’s special day. And it is so fun when couples get ready together. We do love first looks but this is a great alternative as you get to spend that much more time together. And it’s equally great for photos!

After getting ready together, we spent some time walking around their neighborhood taking photos of the two of them. There were lots of awesome stairways and I love when you find a bright pop of color like doors, shutters or flags in the background. Then we made our way over to Dilworth Park which is always a great place to do portraits. And then over to their wedding venue (one of our faves!), PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts).

This wedding had so many awesome details. They did not have a wedding party, which I actually love. Because it was all about the two of them, and their friends and family together. They had a female DJ, i really love that! You just don’t see a whole lot of female DJ’s out there. But I think they can bring something to the [turn]table that a male can’t – see what I did there lol!

They even brought some fun party props, not for a photo booth or anything but just to have fun with during their receptions. Also, take a close look at those AMAZING wedding cakes! You will see a replica of one Beyonce’s birthday cakes from her big Philly birthday party last year. Cake Life blew it out of the water yet again with those cakes! And seriously, can we talk about Dustin and Andy’s outfit change for their party. I’ve never seen such amazing jackets!

    I love this wonderfully captured wedding day, at such a drop dead gorgeous venue. I’ve never seen the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and feel like this post gives a sneak peek. The groom’s suits were great to begin with, but the wardrobe change is spectacular! Love the shots with their doggo, too :) Any wedding that includes their furry family members is right up my alley. Great job, Cathie!

    What a fun wedding at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I love that you were there as they got ready together. The family formals in the art exhibit are so fun! Great work!
