Come wintertime it’s always nice when wedding season is winding down and we finally have the chance to catch up on sleep / edit the thousands of wedding pictures / do cool shit like this. This Bijou Bridal Styled Shoot showcased the Mallory Dawn Wedding Dress by Maggie Sottero on our female model Renee (@chefreneeblake) and a gorgeous Burgundy Shawl Jacket Tuxedo from The Black Tux on our male model Ricardo (@rickycardorics).
Here we are in front of the Free Library of Philadelphia for some gorgeous motion shots showcasing the long bridal train. Ricardo and Renee looked extra dapper set against this gorgeous backdrop.
These beautiful Philadelphia bridal portraits would not have been possible without the creative stylings of our hair and make up artist Caitlin Lavin . She got to the studio at 7:30am along with Renee to begin hair and make up!
Here’s some more pictures from the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the gorgeous Maggie Sottero Mallory Dawn wedding gown.
Art the are museum we headed to Sansom + South Broad Street for the famous Broad Street Bride shot and some shots on the fancy Union League steps.
