Downtown Club Wedding | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

Jess + Jasen’s beautiful Downtown Club wedding is a favorite from the early, pre-COVID 2020 wedding season! These two are total sweethearts and they had quite mild March weather for their day, lucky them! Which is so funny to say, considering they were married on Friday the 13th! It was my first time at this Cescaphe wedding venue, as well as my first time working with Leah Coppotelli, so truly just a perfect day all around. I’m grateful this sweet soul had me join her on this day, because it was just what I needed creatively.

Philadelphia holds a very special place in my heart. I lived just off of South Broad Street for years while I was in college. So when Leah told me their wedding was in the heart of Old City, I did a little happy dance at the prospect of doing my favorite thing in my favorite city. Just know, future brides + grooms, I will ALWAYS happily go to Philadelphia. Seriously, no begging required.

There’s so much history in that city, everywhere you turn yields something new to discover. Jess + Jasen really love the Old City architecture (and I mean, same), so they had their first look at the Merchant’s Exchange Building. They shared a sweet, quiet moment together there before heading off to the get married! From there, we headed to The First Bank of the United States and the surrounding area for more portraits. Their Downtown Club wedding is just a few short blocks from all these lovely spots, so it made for the best Philadelphia wedding. I really loved their classic take on their wedding day, and the party sure did not disappoint either!

All in all, Jess + Jasen’s Downtown Club wedding made me swoon and I’m forever thankful I got to shoot it with a dear friend. Enjoy some favorites from my perspective!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
