water works weddings

If you're having a Philadelphia wedding and you're looking for an iconic place for your wedding venue, you don't need to look any further then the Water Works restaurant. Water works restaurant weddings have the advantage of having the Schuylkill river and boathouse Row as the stunning backdrop. You really have to try hard to take a bad picture in this area. The Philadelphia waterworks was one of the most popular tourist destinations in the early 1900s. In fact, it was second only to Niagara Falls for tourism in the United States. There is a museum underneath the pavilion and it is incredibly educational with regard to the history of this engineering marvel. If you're having a wedding at waterworks, you will be in for a treat because the food is always spectacular. This image, which was also featured in Martha Stewart wedding magazine, was held in June on a fabulously perfect day. The sunset was incredible, and in order to provide the bride and groom with boat house bro behind them, I used my Nikkor 70-200 mm lens and I compressed the background to achieve this dramatic look. This image screams iconic Philadelphia, and in order to achieve the silhouette that I produced with this photograph, I needed to juxtapose the shadows against the highlights. Working at water works restaurant weddings are always A treat because of the best photographic opportunities that are offered there. I look forward to the next time I have the privilege of working there.
