Amanda & Marty: Hyatt at the Bellevue Philadelphia Wedding

Amanda and Marty were married at The Hyatt at The Bellevue on a beautiful day. Their wedding was classy and elegant, and the Bellevue in Philadelphia provided such a stunning backdrop with its old architecture, grand staircases, and balconies overlooking the city. Amanda and Marty are the sweetest couple, and so very much in love. I was so moved by their love that I found myself tearing up when I was editing their photos! Their wedding  was a dream to photograph and I loved being part of their day. Here are some of my favorite images from the day!

I am so incredibly honored to have Amanda & Marty’s wedding featured on one of my all time favorite wedding blogs – the Black Tie Bride! Check out Amanda & Marty’s feature here!

We started the day with some getting ready pictures at The Bellevue.
