Ritz Carlton Philadelphia Wedding PhotographyPhiladelphia is one of my favorite cities to photograph weddings in and the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia is one of my favorite venues. It exudes the elegance and old-world charm that makes a Philadelphia wedding iconic. The bride was leaving the Ritz to go to the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Peter and Paul for her wedding ceremony and I made this picture when she was getting into her car. I am always looked for a unique way to tell the story of a wedding day and when the bride opened her car door I saw her through the rear car window. The light from outside the car illuminated the bride while the interior of the dark car allowed Philadelphia’s City Hall to be reflected in the glass. I made sure that I was careful when exposing for the bride so that she was perfectly exposed in the frame and the rest of the scene stayed dark.
