I just couldn't get a enough of this wonderful couple. After photographing their engagement session, bridal shower and then their wedding, I even convinced them to do a trash the dress session in Philadelphia. Instead of actually trashing the dress we made it a bit more casual and added some winter boots, sweaters, scarves and hats. Then we took a nice stroll through Old City. We started at Merchants Exchange and took a few photos on the amazingly well-lit cobblestone street behind City Tavern. Then we stopped for coffee at Franklin Fountain and found this gorgeous alley nearby. I love the small patch of melting snow and the grungy look of the alley paired with Gina's newly casual wedding gown. It was awesome to have Gina wear her dress again. Brides spend so much on these gowns, why not wear them more and document their versatility? Gina if you're reading this, it's possible that I will bring you into the studio for a glam the dress session! It's another excuse to wear your dress and totally rock it with hair and makeup!
