Karen & Dan at Knowlton Mansion, Philadelphia

Our best clients are clients that I could see hanging out with. Karen and Dan are definitely that kind of couple. Dan is fan of Death Metal and Black Metal - I like Children of Bodom (a German Death Metal Band) and Karen, well she's just an awesome tattooed bride with style and personality. Their wedding took place on the grounds of the Knowlton Mansion in Northeast Philadelphia. The funny thing about the Knowlton Mansion is once you are there, it seems like a oasis away from the city with lush green grass all around. Soon you forget that this outdoor paradise near the heart of northeast Philadelphia. So first off I have to show off Karen's sweet tattoos that otherwise got hidden under the wedding dress:

They didn't get to see each other before the wedding but they did this sort of faux meeting through the wall. Kind of like the scene in The Patriot where they let the couple sleep in the same room but sew into their beds.


I normally don't show "formal" photos. But I rather enjoyed these.
