Elizabeth + Ryan, Bellevue Hyatt, Philadelphia

Elizabeth & Ryan married at Holy Trinity where they had both a Persian ceremony and an Episcopal  ceremony.  The couple held their reception at The Hyatt at The Bellevue in Philadelphia.

OMG!!  We love, love, love the pictures. My sister cried when she saw them and my mom keeps calling me to tell me about her “new favorite”.  They are amazing!!   You are amazing.   Thank you.   Thank you.  Thank you!  ~Elizabeth & Ryan

Photographer Rebecca Barger, photographing Liz at the beginning of her wedding day. 

Liz & Ryan honeymooned in Greek Islands, below are some photos I took in Crete and Santorini, back in the days of film instead of digital.

BTW, the whole time we were in Greece, I kept saying “wish Rebecca was here with us” because I felt like you could capture the beauty of the place in a way that I could never dream of. Your work is truly special! ~ Elizabeth
