Trying to plan your City Hall Elopement in Philadelphia? You’ve probably already figured out that it’s not as easy or as spontaneous as in any of the movies you’ve seen. It’s cool though, because this post breaks it down for you step by step with links to the city website and tips on planning. From how to apply for your Pennsylvania marriage license, to everything you need to know to schedule your elopement ceremony at Philadelphia City Hall, and a few other details you definitely don’t want to leave out.
This shoot came together relatively last minute, and from the first click or my shutter to the last, it lasted less than eighteen minutes - but DANG, did we make magic. Check out the story of how this “test the dress” shoot came to happen and of course, look at how gorgeous Sarah and her babe are!
This post is extra special because not only is it of one of my absolute favorite things to photograph - motherhood, but it’s also a session I did for some of my favorite people - my big sister and her babies.
Just after I sent their gallery out I got a call from Grace, she said she’d been sitting there at her computer crying over the photos and an email just wouldn’t suffice, a call was the only way to express her gratitude for how I had captured them - I may have melted into an actual puddle as she went on about how happy she was to have these photos to look back on for the rest of their lives.
