What you'll do

We will do a Photo Tour of Philly's famous mosaic murals! Rich in history and super funky, these mosaics are a symbol of the city and are scattered both within and without of Philadelphia's Magic Garden. I will be showing you the art that is outside of the Magic Garden and will be taking you on a tour of the many streets, parks, and alleys that have also been beautifully decorated with Isaiah Zagar's artwork. They make the perfect backdrop for a photograph and are a great glimpse into the everyday beauty of Philly. You will be sure to have tons of Instagrammable photos and an experience that will make all of your friend's and family want to visit Philadelphia too!

I am a young professional and photographer who loves Philadelphia more than most! To me, Philadelphia is freedom and I want everybody to feel liberated when they visit this city that I so proudly call "home." I have spent 10+ years practicing film, instant, and digital photography and know the city like the back of my hand allowing you to have the most comfortable and customizable experience possible!

Where you'll be

Isaiah Zagar's art is scattered all around the city, but we will specifically be exploring the streets near the Magic Garden on South Street. Each street offers a new and different perspective of the city, and each one is a unique backdrop and piece of art.

It was a blast to seeing art all around the city with a Pennsylvania native! She gave me so many ideas of things to see after our tour too! She was patient when I wanted to stop and take pics in random spots and was eager to tell me what she knew about each area!

I was so blown away by how welcoming and friendly Mary is - it made shooting with her super comfortable. Mary is so so talented!
