We'd like you to get to know us a little!
Who We Are
We are a team of friendly photographers with years of experience photographing weddings. We will photograph your wedding with the same care as if it were our own! We find just the right candid moment to tell the story, while being part of the fun times on the day!
Principal Photographer/Business Owner
Loves dogs, biking, and Game of Thrones, (in that order!) and sometimes eats Oreos for breakfast. Faith was married 4 years ago, and is passionate about being a mom and wife. She is a calming presence for nervous brides on the big day. Faith loves capturing true "moments" on the wedding days of all her "frienders" (friend-and-customer,) just like her photographers did for her wedding day.
Marathon runner, moped rider, loves being a dad, avid reader, passionate about photographing weddings, becomes everyone's friend by the end of the day.
Plays video games, crosswords, Sudoko, and loves hanging out with her husband and two dogs. Jessica's a fun and upbeat friend to brides and grooms on the wedding day; she loves being in the right place for a good candid expression.
Selected by brides themselves as "Best of the Knot," Faith West Photography, conveniently located in Philadelphia across from City Hall, and in Blue Bell on Route 202-DeKalb Pike, has been producing award-winning, casual and candid wedding photography in Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, and surrounding areas for over 10 years. Our work has been published repeatedly in Martha Stewart Weddings, Modern Bride, Elegant Bride, the national version of The Knot magazine, Style Me Pretty blog, Professional Photographer magazine, The Knot Pennsylvania, The Knot New Jersey, The Knot New York, Brides Philadelphia/South Jersey, New Jersey Bride, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and Delaware Bride. Faith West Photography's images are also prominently placed on the cover of The Knot Complete Guide to Weddings in the Real World. Further, we are nine-time first prize winners in Philadelphia Magazine's wedding photography contest, and we've won the prestigious First Prize in Photo District News' wedding photography contest.
For anyone looking for Philadelphia Wedding Photographers we have the most talented staff of friendly, wonderful photographers that anyone could ask for. All of our photographers are hand-picked for their easy-going personalities as well as their talent, since we know how important it is to interact with the right photographer for 9-10 hours on your wedding day!
Due to our 17 years of experience, we have photographed weddings at just about every wedding location in the Philadelphia/South Jersey/Delaware area. Visit our "real Philadelphia weddings," "real New Jersey weddings," and "real Delaware weddings" webpages to see slide shows of images from nearly one hundred local locations organized by venue.
Our method of working on the wedding day is to be out of the way and not noticed by you or the guests. We quietly photograph the true "moments" that will capture the emotions of your wedding day. We want you to have fun at your wedding and we want the real emotions to be preserved forever!
One advantage over other Philadelphia wedding photographers, besides our experience, is our attention to detail, and the quality of the finished images. We retouch every image to look its best, meaning you will receive only images that your photographer has decided are ready to leave the computer and be delivered to you. And we don't keep the copyright to those images. This allows you to use the photos as you see fit, without permission from us, and without spending extra money to get your photos.
Everyone says our albums are the prettiest they have ever seen. They are also the best quality! All our archival albums are library-bound and covered with the finest quality materials. Some have a photo on the cover as well. Inside, all pages are made of museum-quality mat board and archival photo paper, guaranteed to last the rest of your lives.
We also have packages to meet most any budget. Starting at $1,799 for an associate photographer, we deliver the best possible wedding photography in Philadelphia at various price points.
Every wedding is unique. We love to see how each wedding is a little different, and each family has different concerns. That's why we offer a session to schedule your wedding with us. By the end of the session, you'll know exactly when the flowers should be delivered, when the limos should arrive, and all the other logistical details of who should be where for photos at what time. We've been told that the detailed and helpful schedule alone is reason to hire Faith West Photography!
Should you like an engagement photo session, it's included in all of our packages. Instead of a plain-old guest book with lines for the guests to sign, what about a sign-in book with images from your engagement session spread throughout the book? It's a real conversation piece at the wedding, and becomes a keepsake treasured forever. Or, we offer a sign-in board with a photo of you, plus your names and wedding date in beautiful calligraphy below the photo, framed in a tasteful array of frames.
Call our the Faith West Photography office at 267.539.7841 to discuss your one-of-a-kind wedding and the casual, fun, exquisite wedding photography we will create to capture it. With our locations across from City Hall, Philadelphia, or on Route 202-DeKalb Pike in Blue Bell, most clients find it easy to fit a visit to our studio in to their schedules. We look forward to hearing from you!
