Katherine and Brian | Trump Philadelphia Wedding
Ever since Katherine and Brian’s engagement session, I couldn’t wait for their Trump Philadelphia wedding. After a postponement in 2020, the day finally came and it was worth the wait! It was such a fun adventure and offered so many authentic moments.
I started the day with Katherine at her childhood home in NE Philly. Her room still had throwbacks to her childhood, most prominently, an autographed photo of Flyers star, Danny Briere. Meanwhile in NJ, my second photographer, Ted started with Brian at his home in South Jersey.
Each location had it’s own unique vibe. Katherine’s location, was calm and quiet yet screams of excited children sporadically filled the house. Across the Delaware River in NJ, light saber fights and reenactments of Avenger movies filled Brian’s home.
Once Katherine was dressed, and Brian’s crew saved the world from Thanos, we headed to the beautiful Ukrainian Catholic Church in Philadelphia. It’s domed ceiling, beautiful colors and amazing architecture provided the perfect ceremony location. Every angle provided a unique and equally incredible point of view. One thing I loved about Katherine and Brian’s ceremony is that they were always in front of the steps, and not on it or on the raised platform which normally would be the alter. This allowed me the ability (and permission) to walk on what would normally be the alter, and capture a shot looking towards the back of the church. As a photographer, my goal is to stay quiet and essentially be a ninja with a camera. Walking up there was a little awkward, but provided a unique shot you normally won’t capture in church ceremonies.
After the ceremony, we headed over to Trump Philadelphia in New Jersey for their reception. After the traditional first dances, Ukrainian tradition of eating bread and salt, guests enjoyed dinner, dancing, mingling and celebrating with the new bride and groom. I really enjoyed hanging around Katherine and Brian’s family and friends and capturing memories for them!
Congratulations Katherine and Brian! It was such an honor to capture your day. Here are some of my favorites from their Trump Philadelphia Wedding!
