Best Wedding Photography in Philadelphia

This image perfectly illustrates everything that I love about sunset light in the late fall. This photograph was taken in Philadelphia’s iconic Rittenhouse Square Park just as the autumn sun was dipping behind the buildings. If I had to choose one time of day to be outside photographing a couple this would be it! This time of day depends very much on the time of year. Sunset in the winter in Philadelphia happens at a much different time and with a different light quality then sunset in the summer. We only had a brief period of time in between the bride and groom’s wedding ceremony at The Westin Hotel in Philadelphia and their wedding reception. Thanks to the dedicated team at The Wedding Factor we were able to make a lightning fast round-trip over to Rittenhouse Square for some sunset portraits. I was able to use my favorite portrait lens, the 70-200mm, to compress my subjects off of the background. The compression of the 70-200mm along with the beautiful sunset light streaming through the bride’s veil combine to make my favorite type of photograph - a beautiful portrait with genuine emotion. So many of my clients complain that they are "terrible in front of the camera" and I can assure you that that is never the case! The emotion between the bride and groom is real, their interaction is natural, and all I did was set the scene for the moments to unfold.Keywords: philadelphia (36), Rittenhouse Square, The Westin Philadelphia. 1/320; f/4.0; ISO 720; 175.0 mm.
