There are a lot of things to take into consideration when choosing where to take photos on your wedding day!

What kind of background do you prefer? Would you like a more private setting or do you want the electricity of the city to be present in your images? How close are these locations to your venue?

We’re here to help inspire you! Here are Philip Gabriel Photography’s top 3 favorite Philly locations for your wedding day portraits:

Center City

Broad and Market Streets, City Hall, LOVE Park, Rittenhouse Square Park, Reading Terminal Market

The heart of Philadelphia lies in Center City. Surrounded by enormous skyscrapers and all the hustle and bustle of the city’s residents, you are sure to get that monumental and majestic feeling.

There are also plenty of little parks sprinkled throughout the City of Brotherly Love if you’re after some lush landscapes.
