HELP! My fiance and I are getting married October 5th and our original plans for wedding photos at race street pier fell through. Does anyone have any suggestions for locations that are close to Northeast Philadelphia, because we need to stay within a reasonable distance of our reception venue.
Thank you!

    Hey Gabrielle! I’m sorry that your original location has fallen through but you have plenty of time to scout out some new locations! Are there any locations close by that are special to you and your SO? If so, that could be a great place to hold your wedding photos. Is there anywhere on the grounds of your location that would work?

    Your photographer is also a great resource for location suggestions, especially if they are located locally.

    Unfortunately since our reception venue is in our neighborhood it's not really that big and its surroundings are pretty much just residential. We are having our ceremony at our church so we will have some nice photos there, we just also wanted to get others that werent related to the church. We have contacted a few other places, hoping for a response soon!

    Not sure where in NE Philadelphia you are, but what about Pennypack park? There are a lot of nice areas in and around there.

    You could do a park that has nice surroundings, Bristol, or Bensalem area. Maybe there is place in Trevose, Pa.

    What area in Trevose are you thinking of? My fiancé and I are also getting married in October and are looking for photo options. We are getting ready in Bensalem and then getting married at a church in the Mayfair section of Philadelphia.

    We are actually getting our photos done at Nazareth academy high school. They have a nice gazebo and I've seen some really cute wedding photos done there.

    I’m not that familiar with trevose well only passing through to go to the malls. . I know that it is not far from Mayfair right up the boulevard. I thought you could look and see if anything is available for you to take pictures. Maybe you can try Bensalem. They may have places also. I am getting married in bensalem at celebration. Hat is where I am having my pictures taken. I hope this is helpful.

    Unfortunately they are charging but it goes as a donation towards the church

    Hi, I realize this was a while ago but if you don’t mind me asking did you need to contact the school for permission/ or a permit?
