****The couple and I do not support any political party. The hats were a joke as this wedding was 5 months before the election. They had no idea he would have won!*****
Nicole & Dan’s Spring Trump National Golf Club of Philadelphia wedding was easily one of our best of the year. I absolutely love working with this couple as you can see from their GTKY in South Philadelphia. Their day was filled with laughs, fun, and emotion. I am thankful that they asked me to capture it all for them.

Trump National Golf Club bridal preps
One of my favorite parts of Trump National Golf Club weddings is there is a ton of natural light everywhere! The bridal suite is not huge there but plenty space for 5-6 people. There is absolutely no flash on any of her preps as there is always ample light in that room. Nicole looked stunning on her wedding day. She didn’t even mess up her makeup after reading Dan’s letter to her.
First look Trump National Golf Club of Philadelphia
All the couples I capture at Trump National Golf Club of Philadelphia typically do a first look of prior to the ceremony. First, I always find a quiet spot for them to meet. It should be a private moment between the couple. This allows them to be more emotional seeing each other for the first time on the wedding day. I love seeing tears and laughter for the first look. That really screams how much love there is for each other.
Bridal portraits at Trump National Golf Club
Their bridal party was one of a kind! The guys were super cool and fun. The girls were laid back and loved to laugh and have fun too. We had so much fun together and they were very cooperative and I was able to photograph them in about 20 minutes. Their day was beautiful and you could see the Philadelphia skyline in the background of their photographs.
Outdoor Ceremony at Trump National Golf Club of Philadelphia
First I love outdoor ceremonies. They are short, heartfelt and very natural. Nicole and Dan had one of their good friends officiate the wedding and damn was he funny. This helped to lighten the mood because it was getting very emotional. The backdrop behind the ceremonies at Trump National are gorgeous. It looks like a painting!
Trump National Golf Club Reception
Nicole and Dan’s reception was absolute fun and it did not disappoint. The Stella Baking Company’s gold wedding cake was incredible along with all Nicole’s homemade details. Bob Morgan Entertainment rocked the event and people went crazy for the music! We finished their evening with a small 5-10 minutes session under the moonlit night in front of the fountain. What an awesome wedding for an awesome couple. Thanks for letting me be a part of it.
