couples photos in front of city hall

City Hall Couples Photos | Blair and Nick

Blair and Nick scheduled some City Hall couples photos during their brief visit to Philadelphia in the summer of 2022! They got married in California, where they live, during covid. This trip to Philly was the perfect time to celebrate their marriage with Blair’s east coast family!! Why not schedule some couples photos as well?

City Hall Photos

I met up with Blair and Nick at their Center City hotel. The plan was to take a few couples photos in front of City Hall before heading to South Philly for their wedding celebration at Dock Street South. We only had about 15 minutes for photos, so I knew we had to act fast!

Luckily, Blair and Nick are so in love and photographing them was so easy! Blair wore a stunning ivory dress to commemorate the fact that she recently got married. I guided them through a few photos on the Broad Street median to capture them in front of the majestic City Hall. It was the perfect time of day for these photos – both they and the building were in the light!

Hotel Lobby Photos

What you may not be able to tell is just how hot it was taking these photos. This was the peak of summer and boy, could we feel it! When we took a heat break inside their hotel, we asked the security guard if we could take a few photos in the lobby. He said yes! So I quickly guided them through some more fun photos, making sure not to get any guests in the background. Blair and Nick were so happy with those photos!!

Dock Street South

After we finished our brief round of city hall couples photos, I met Nick and Blair at Dock Street South to photograph their wedding celebration. It was so sweet so see all the massive hugs and big smiles as they were reunited with loved ones!

I’d been to Dock Street South before with friends (it’s a cute brewery with fantastic pizza), but this was my first time at an event there. They sectioned off the whole back room which gave the group an air of privacy. They catered the party as well, which looked delicious!! If you need a cool, rustic-looking spot to host a gathering in Philly, Dock Street South is a great option … especially if you like pizza!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
