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.


The Museum District

Barnes Foundation, Franklin Institute, Free Library, Logan Circle, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rodin Museum

Philadelphia’s iconic Benjamin Franklin Parkway is flanked by some of the city’s best museums. Dripping with culture, this district is filled with some of the city’s best statues, architecture and fountains.

Run up the iconic “Rocky” Philadelphia Art Museum steps and treat yourself to one of the best skyline views in the entire city!

Old City

Washington Square Park, Franklin Square, Merchants Exchange Building, First and Second Banks of the United States

The neighborhood known as America’s “most historic square mile” also includes the waterfront area along Delaware Avenue. This versatile area is constructed of cobblestone pathways that link gorgeous parks to some of the oldest buildings in the country.

Take a quiet stroll together and let us capture your memories from the best day ever.
