Jackie + Barnaby. An intimate wedding in Philadelphia.

I can't explain enough how much I love small weddings and elopements.  While I love a big wedding as well, there is something exciting and raw about a casual, intimate ceremony surrounded by just a few family members and friends.  In Pennsylvania, you can actually get married by Quaker law which allows you to basically conduct your own ceremony.  That is what Jackie + Barnaby decided to do.  They stepped aside at a special place to them, confessed their love and commitment to each other, and in a matter of seconds it was over.  I find that so simple and perfect.  What else is really needed?  So when these 2 asked me to document their ceremony for a few hours I jumped at the chance.  For 3hrs I just shadowed them photographing a whole range of moments as we drove around Philadelphia. Congratulations Jackie + Barnaby.  I wish you both all the best life has to offer!
