I have had the good fortune to be one of the first photographers to be invited to photograph what may be the most unique and beautiful venue for weddings and events in the Philadelphia area… The Elkins Estate.
When I stumbled upon Elkins last April, I was stunned by it’s stately magnificence. Wendy Young was my first friend at Elkins, and she then introduced me to David Dobson and the charming Amy Ragsdale. David – the director and owner – took some time out of his busy schedule to meet with me in order to explain what his vision was for the Estate, and looking at it today, he had certainly achieved that vision. It’s quite remarkable to have been witness to the incredible transformation of this elegant and beautiful mansion. I really enjoyed the chance to capture the grandeur of this Estate in photographs, and contribute to it’s legacy as a part of Philadelphia’s history.
Here are a few of my favorite images from my first year at The Elkins Estate. Thank you to David, Wendy, Anessa, Lindsay, Melissa and Amy for all of your hard work and dedication. I’m glad to have been a part of this venture, and look forward to the future of The Elkins Estate.
