Wedding Photography at Renaissance Hotel

Andrea and Cornell were married at the Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown in Philadelphia, PA after meeting on They went to a wine bar for their first date and spoke for four hours. Cornell proposed on their fourth date with a ring that he made from a dollar bill. Andrea didn't say yes at first, but he was persistent and asked many times over the course of their relationship. Ultimately, he got down on one knee in his newly purchased home on September 12, 2020, and she finally said yes.

On their wedding day, it was evident that Andrea and Cornell’s relationship is like two friends that have found their person. It was clear from the jokes they shared together during our meetings and at their engagement shoot that humor plays a huge role in their connection. They are the true definition of best friends in love. 

Andrea and Cornell’s wedding was smooth and almost flawless (no wedding occurs without at least one mishap). Their easygoing nature made the day go by quickly and smoothly; I couldn’t believe when it was time for the final photos of the day. The wedding day was beautiful, a cold November day, which for the bride, who is an Alaskan native, felt like summer. Overall, Andrea and Cornell’s nuptials were a pleasure to shoot.  

Andera and Cornell, thank you for choosing my team and me to shoot your special day. It has been a pleasure working with you both even after spending the night dancing while shooting photos and feeling the pain the next day. It was also a joy working with a fellow passionate Eagles fan (shedding a slight tear; you know why). Can’t wait to watch your journey and see how you blossom over the years.
