PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia wedding photographer who had been a fixture of the Philadelphia wedding industry died on Friday after battling complications from pneumonia, her family said.

Martha Gorman, a photographer for the Philadelphia Wedding Photographers Association, died on Jan. 31.

She was 53.

“We are devastated by the loss of our dear friend Martha Gorman,” the group said in a statement.

“She was a beautiful and caring person who was loved and respected by everyone.”

Gorman worked as a photographer in Philadelphia for more than 30 years, and was married twice.

In 2007, she was married to photographer John Zampino, who is now the founder of Zampo Photography.

Gorman had been married for seven years, but she and Zamponi divorced in 2016.

She had been hospitalized for a short time earlier this year with pneumonia.

She was an avid photographer and had photographed weddings and other events around the world.

“Martha loved all of her clients, and we have many fond memories,” the wedding photographers association said in its statement.

“Our hearts go out to her family and friends at this very difficult time.”

Gomer’s funeral will be held Saturday at 9 a.m. at St. Elizabeth’s Cathedral in Philadelphia.

She is survived by her mother, Karen Gorman of St. Joseph, Mo.; brother, Joe Gorman; a stepdaughter, Heather Gorman Smith; and several grandchildren.
