Philadelphia City Hall Elopement:
Jessica + Austin

They drove from Michigan. They thought Philadelphia’s City Hall was a beautiful building, perfect place to elope and be married. So why not? Road trip! Extra special, amazing, life-altering road trip. They brought along their Self-Uniting Marriage Certificate and met me at City Hall. First step, find two witnesses. That was fun! Dilworth Plaza was full of Philly characters this sunny day, but they chose an adorable young couple who were surprised and honored and took their job very seriously. The papers were signed on a bench between City Hall and the bubbling fountains at the plaza. Kids in swimming suits were splashing and sprinting through the water behind them. It was a beautiful chaos. Jessica and Austin are a beautiful couple. I was so, so happy to be able to photograph their Philadelphia Elopement.
