When wedding photographers Cliff Mautner and Susan Stripling got married on April 17 at Front and Palmer in Philadelphia, they hired Daniel Kudish and Mary Beth Tyson as their “official” photographers. As Stripling explains it, “Mary Beth is excellent at capturing moments and has a wonderfully innate understanding of lighting, and Daniel is extraordinary at looking beyond the obvious and finding really compelling angles to enhance his storytelling. We felt that they would really complement each other and we were honored to work with each of them.”

Out of 64 guests present, 22 were working professional photographers and nine more were also in the wedding industry. Here we present some of the couple’s favorite moments from the day.

“We thought it would be hard to be on the other side of the camera but it really wasn’t,” says Stripling. ”Since our photographers and videographer were friends of ours, it was so much easier to relax.”

Stripling adds that it was also interesting to see what did and didn’t matter to them photographically. “We really only wanted about four formal family groupings, for example. And we didn’t want to give up cocktail hour because we really just wanted to be close to the family and friends that came so far to be with us. We did our portraits the day after and it was so much more relaxed!”
