Philadelphia Micro Wedding Photographer
“There is no difficulty that love will not conquer.” – Emmet Fox
Who knew how right Emmet Fox would be! The global pandemic of Covid-19 has laid waste to weddings in the spring and summer of 2020, postponing and cancelling weddings of all sizes. And it’s definitely ok for you to be mad. Or cry. Or eat twelve pints of Halo Top while binge watching Schitt’s Creek.
As a Philadelphia micro wedding photographer, I know how much thought and consideration went into choosing your wedding date. Maybe it’s your grandparent’s wedding anniversary. The day you were engaged. Or perfect numerology. You chose it for a reason. And you can totally keep it with a micro wedding.
A micro wedding is like a tiny house, but for weddings, and can be the perfect solution for abiding by regulations around social distancing and the size of gatherings. An intimate ceremony with your family and your best friends. Your people, watching you get married to your person. And someone close to you can even be ordained online to help keep the gathering size within the legal limits.
It can be a simple church ceremony, a small backyard wedding with a few cocktails or craft beers after, or anything you can imagine. Cousins, aunts, and other distant relatives and friends can live stream your wedding ceremony on Zoom, Skype, or another video conferencing apps. You can even have a big reception later, when coronavirus has calmed down.
My photojournalistic approach to wedding photography is critical for micro weddings, allowing me to be as unobtrusive as possible, while capturing those candid moments. I’ve also designed ways to work without an assistant, so as many of your friends and family as possible can attend.
I don’t have a marriage license, what can I do?
In Philadelphia and many municipalities in the surrounding area, you can apply for your marriage license through video conferencing. If you live in the city of Philadelphia, you can find more information here. Live in another town and can’t find the information? Drop me a line and I’ll do what I can to help you.
What are your policies for micro weddings?
In these uncertain times, if your micro wedding date must be postponed or cancelled due to Covid-19, all monies will be transferred to the new date or refunded. Even your retainer.
What are your rates?
Philadelphia micro wedding photography rates start at $400 per hour. Add-on options include a second photographer, prints, albums, or additional events like a traditional reception at a later date.
