Rittenhouse Wedding Photos After Philadelphia Wedding Chapel

Rittenhouse Square Wedding

I will always love shooting Rittenhouse wedding photos. Rittenhouse Square reminds me of the days when Paul and I would stroll the park with cameras taking photos of all the beautiful, interesting people hanging out there.  I didn’t realize that a few short years later, I would be fortunate to have clients who wanted photos of what I already loved doing. So when Rasheedah called me about her upcoming wedding at The Philadelphia Wedding Chapel, I was thrilled that she wanted to take a nice photo walk afterwards in one of my favorite parks in the city. The Philadelphia Wedding Chapel is one of our favorite venues for weddings and elopements.  It’s a New York style loft space in East Falls, and they do a beautiful job with everything from private elopements to ceremonies for up to 50 people.  I love shooting there so much, I have special pricing for ceremonies there. Please reach out to me if you’re interested in our pricing for the chapel.

Rasheedah and William had about 30 family members at the chapel, followed by cake and a champagne toast.  After leaving the Chapel, the couple wanted to stop for photos in their favorite coffee shop in Center City, the Nook Bakery and Coffee.  They both work near the cafe, and have spent many hours there together.  We then walked to Rittenhouse Square and took advantage of the warm afternoon light.   Rasheedah and William were a joy to spend a few hours with.  A couple who is so focused on each other, so clearly in love and natural with each other.  I’m extraordinarily grateful to have been a part of their wedding day.

    I love their style, so sleek and modern. Your Rittenhouse photos are beautiful, and I especially love the casual shots at Nook Bakery. Anyone in Philadelphia should hire Black White and Raw Photography!

    I kept trying to pick a favorite wedding portrait as I scrolled from the Philadelphia wedding chapel to the Rittenhouse square photos. Impossible to choose the best!! Loved the effortless look you gave them and the fact that they wanted to use the Nook coffee shop that they actually frequented.
    Great work!!
