Since Philadelphia is so close to home, I really enjoy when I’m assigned Philadelphia Wedding Photography. This event was a Kimmel Center Wedding, and we began with Wedding Photography at the Ritz Carlton Philadlephia when the bride was getting ready. I really enjoy utilizing beautiful light for bridal prep photos in the bridal suites, and the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia Penthouse is a terrific place to shoot bridal prep. Her dress was spectacular, and her friends were incredibly excited for her. I really like how the light is pouring in and kissing the faces of the bridesmaids as they gush over her wedding gown. Shortly after this, the bride slipped into her gown, and she went to see her father for the first time on her wedding day. After that, she went on to get married at St. Augustine’s in Philadelphia PA. the bridal portraits in Independence National Historical Park were terrific during a gorgeous day in Washington Square Park, specifically. Upon our return to the Kimmel Center for the wedding reception, Garces Catering put out a spectacular spread, and EBE’s LA Starz provided spectacular entertainment as people dances well into the evening at the Kimmel Center. We also took a few moments to head outside to Broad Street in Philadelphia for a few night shots of City Hall on Broad Street, which is an iconic photo I enjoy shooting. Our bride’s father owns all of the P.J. Whelihans restaurants, and they served the guests on their food trucks late into the night outside the Kimmel Center Wedding as the reception ended.
