During Rachel’s travel contract in Boston we got the opportunity to talk with Leah and Garrett. We got into contract together and began to plan out their Philadelphia engagement session. After driving down to Philadelphia from Boston to get their engagement session we were so excited to come back for their wedding. Returning for their Philadelphia wedding photography was such an honor and it was a long weekend ahead of us.
At the time of their wedding, Rachel was under contract with a hospital in San Diego. We had been flying out to weddings all summer but this one was going to be our first double header. We flew in and stayed in an Airbnb in Washington D.C. and took a bus up to Philadelphia the morning of their wedding. It was an early bus ride and a long ride so we slept on the way. We connected to their hotel where they were getting ready through grabbing another city bus. We got there and they were getting their makeup ready.
Rachel stayed with the bridesmaids as they got ready for the day with makeup and hair. I went down a floor and connected with Garret and the boys as they got ready. They were all quick to get ready be ready for the day before Garrett’s mom joined us for a few photos. I went back upstairs and joined the bridesmaids as Leah put the wedding dress on. Once they were all ready we boarded the party shuttle they had for us on the way to the wedding venue. The St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Philadelphia was a beautiful venue for their wedding day.
