How about these (some might be cliche, but still good spots and depending on the time of day, might not be overly crowded)

South Street Bridge

Penn’s Landing

Art Museum Steps

Love Park

Franklin Square

Independence Hall

Are you going for historic or more offbeat?

What about Fairmount Park at Lincoln drive? The trails always look so intriguing and fun.

I live right by Manayunk and there are a lot of quirky little side streets, corners, murals, and buildings in the area.  Falls Bridge is beautiful when it’s lit up and then you have the Free Library building right off of Green Lane.  There’s an awesome mosaic mural on the building where Art Plus Science used to be.  That walking path is totally adorable and you have the train tracks right there-which I drunkenly had a fab photoshoot at one night!

Could you change the day to a weekday? That’s our plan. Crowds of gawkers do not make for natural photos.

The Naval Yard where the new Urban Outfitters HQ is. Unbelievably cool area with very dramatic backdrops of Aircraft Carriers on the water, and there will be nobody around. Wanted to get married there but it didn’t work out, so we will hopefully be doing our pre-ceremony shots down there.

I did mine at Silk City Diner! It was a funky place which I loved!

I’ve always wanted to do mine around 30th street station because you can get the city background, and inside, you can get good pics sitting on the bench!

Hello! I was wondering if any sort of permit or permission was needed to have professional pictures (engagement session) at 30th st. station? I know for the mosaic garden you need to pay a fee…

 

thanks!!

No 30th street station does not require a permit. I did a session there recently. You can see the photography policy on the amtrak website

I’d like to add our e-shoot location to the list of Philly area suggestions. Since our photos just went online today, I can finally reveal our location: Terrain at Styer’s
