Philadelphia Water Works weddings are always a dream to document. Located at one of the most beautiful and romantic part of Philadelphia, this Cescaphe's venue has it all. From spectacular backdrop of the Art Museum and city skyline on one side to charming view of the boat houses lined up by the river on the other, you will be amazed by all of the beauty and charm of this place.
There are so many marvelous opportunities for your wedding photographs if you are getting married at the Water Works! And the best part about this venue is that even though it is located in the center city, it has an open view of the sunset. That means you can capture some breathtaking golden hour sunset photos, which is usually not very easy to get in the city with all of its skyscrapers, parks and business centers.
We especially love photographing our brides and grooms by the Water Works Gazebo. Overviewing the waterfront, it looks absolutely marvelous both for the portraits of the bride and groom together, or bridal party and family photos. When the sun is setting down, the Gazebo area has the most breathtaking golden hour light you have ever seen!
The bridal portrait above is one of the photos we took at one of the Waterworks weddings in fall. The sun was just about to go down and we wanted to take advantage of that short precious time during the day and create some beautiful and unique portraits for the newlyweds. The bride was just standing to the right of the Gazebo, waiting while the groom and the groomsmen were finalizing their fun group photos with Vladimir. I instantly noticed that beautiful rim of light around her face and took a few frames right away. After a few adjustments and repositioning the bride a little bit, this photograph was captures. I absolutely love how charming, elegant and calm the bride looks on this photograph.
If you are getting married at the Water Works, be reassured that you will discover tons of other spectacular spots for your wedding photographs around every corner.
