Just a few weeks before last Christmas, JPG had the pleasure of shooting Kathryn and Sean’s elegant and heartwarming vow renewal at Old St. Mary’s Church in Center city. A few years ago, Joe took the engagement photos for this amazing couple, and one of the shots went on to go viral and win a few awards. The couple exuded a warmth and friendliness, and it was heartwarming to see such an intimate family affair.
We started with a portrait session in Old City near Independence Hall. When you see how comfortable, affectionate and relaxed Kathryn and Sean are together, it’s no surprise that they’ve been married for years. We made our way over to the church, where Kathryn’s younger brother walked her down the isle. Old St. Mary’s is an incredible place that manages to feel sacred and welcoming at the same time. Kathryn wore a gorgeous champagne colored dress that was covered in crystals. The best part of the night was seeing how much Kathryn and Sean’s family really cared about each other. Working as Philadelphia photographer in December can be pretty cold business, but our hearts were warmed by being able to be a part of this truly special night.
Best, Joe G
