The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts is an extraordinary venue for couples looking to hold an elegant wedding reception in Philadelphia. The venue works alongside Brulee Catering which is one of the best in the city. The architecture inside PAFA is stunning and provides for an amazing backdrop for photos and for guests to mingle and enjoy the evening. Guests can also look through the galleries to see what is on display which provides an additional aspect of elegance that most weddings do not provide. Our newlyweds in this photo opted for a simple elegance for their wedding theme and choosing PAFA aided in that theme. Guests came to this wedding from all over including Washington DC and Alabama. Our bride grew up in Philadelphia and was able to capture the iconic city elements in her wedding photos such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Merchants Exchange, and a view of City Hall while looking down Broad Street. PAFA is located on Broad Street withing a very close walking distance to City Hall. This photo was taken on a staircase inside the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and was lit was a strobe and magmod grid and sphere being held by my second photographer on camera right.
