Renee + Elliot had a gorgeous Philadelphia elopement session at the Fairmount Water Works on September 21, 2020. Even in the midst of a pandemic, these two beautiful people decided to bring joy by celebrating their love and uniting their lives. The day was sunny and bright, perfect for such a happy occasion.
Elliot almost broke down into tears when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time. For emotional elopement photography, look no further than J&J Studios. We are subtle enough to capture raw emotion, but also make our clients feel comfortable so those emotions can be captured.

Renee struggled to hold back tears as she said her “I dos,” while Elliot couldn’t keep himself from smiling ear to ear as he looked at his stunning wife-to-be.
The comb in Renee’s hair was gorgeous and brought glamour to her outfit and to the wedding. She balanced its size and drama with delicate matching jewelry.Once they were declared husband and wife, Renee and Elliot shared a passionate, yet tender, first kiss. J & J Studios captured this as Renee’s long veil blew in the breeze.
