As Philadelphia wedding photographers, we are often being asked for best recommendations for wedding photography. The list is endless. But there are a few points to consider while picking the best location for your wedding day photos.
Tips to chose best location for wedding photos in Philly
Stay close to your venue. It might sound like a great idea to travel anywhere for your wedding photos. But keep in mind that more time you spend on travel, less time you will have left for photos.
Pick a location that will work best with your color scheme. Talk to your photographer about the color of your flowers, bridesmaids dresses, whether you prefer dark, moody or light and airy backgrounds.
Pick one or two the most favorite locations and stick to them. Planning to take photos at more than 3-4 locations is probably not the best idea. First, you will be exhausted. And second, the wedding day is all about you enjoying every moment and sharing it with the loved ones. We don't want you to spend hours and hours for taking photographs.
Don't forget about the permit. Mostly all of the locations in the historic Old City area require a permit for wedding photographs. Make sure you have one. To find out more information about Philadelphia permits, please follow this link.
Have a backup location in case of rain or snow. As Philadelphia wedding photographs, we have a good amount of great back up locations in our arsenal. We can discuss all of those options closer to your wedding day is there is a good chance of a bad weather. P.S: we always have a nice clear umbrella for you portraits in our car trunk for just in case.
