Wedding Photographer at the Four Seasons PhiladelphiaDuring the portrait session of the bride and groom at this 2012 Four Seasons Philadelphia wedding we left the hotel and traveled around the city, stopping at Love Park and the Art Museum. I love the Art Museum area of Philadelphia for its’ iconic views of the city and the multiple locations there to make beautiful portraits. In Eakins Oval there is a gorgeous fountain that I love to go to for portraits. This is a great part of town because Eakins Oval is a traffic circle that connects Fairmount Park, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and Kelly Drive. In this Oval is the Washington Monument Fountain and that’s where this wedding portrait was taken. I love the way the water from the fountain adds visual interest and leading lines to what could have been a simple portrait of a bride and groom. I love the way the bride is looking at the groom. I love, love, love her wedding dress. I especially love the light on her face, the bright blue sky behind them, and the bright greenery in the distance.
