My daughter had hers done at the Art Museum. That’s probably also pretty popular! lol

We did ours on a Saturday afternoon at the Kimmel Center on Broad street. The building is a public space so you can roam around and take pics all day. They have some really great backdrops and added plus not a lot of people especially on the second and third level. We also did some shots on the surrounding streets so we got the City Hall backdrop shot plus some great shots in front of lovely brownstone row homes.

Try doing down at the Shipyard.  Tons of old buildings and ships.

Oh! definitely take them at the Magic Garden! Then if there’s time maybe you can wander over to old city for a different setting

Oh! I like the Reading Terminal idea. I also want to shoot at 30th street station, as well as some places around Old City for a fun, urban feel! I see many couples use graffiti as their background!

Another idea I saw was the mini-golf course at Franklin Square 🙂

Ours was shot in Olde City. There are incredible shots to be had! Here are a few from our shoot last April

The Fitler Square area is a favorite place of mine when I am doing shoots. If you’re not familiar, it is the area around 22nd and Pine streets.

In Moorestown, NJ — just over the bridge — there’s a True Value hardware store near some old railroad tracks. The hardware store — where the mister and I have been spending TONS of time since closing on our home 7/19 — is in a converted building, and the whole place just has this awesome, intangible feel to it. If I’d known it existed when we were doing e-pics, I *so* would have done part of our session there. Just sayin’
