Alexis + Nick: Engagement Session in Old City Philadelphia

Engagement

Alexis and Nick got engaged just one year ago on Thanksgiving (and Alexis’ birthday). They were with her family and he gave her a birthday card. The card played “As Time Goes By” from Casablanca (her favorite movie). Dangling from the card was the ring. She said yes and they’re having their wedding on the beach next year in Cape May.

We wandered through Old City for their e-session. Nick wanted to make sure we got a few shots with the Ben Franklin Bridge in the background. Check!


Then we headed to Elfreth’s Alley. I’m actually ashamed I had never been here before and even more amazed that no one else had ever asked to shoot engagement/wedding pictures here. I loved it! There wasn’t a soul around.




Old abandoned building. Yep!


We stopped at this incredible old building. The light was just scrumptious. And those columns…



Then we met up with Nick and Alexis’ 1 year old Westie, Melody, and the party really started. No attention span at all (find me a terrier to the contrary!) but adorable as anything.



We must have hit that park at just the right time because the colors were unreal.



We ran over behind Independence Hall to get a little more light right before the end of the session.


Alexis and Nick (and Mel), thanks so much for such a good time. See you in May!

It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by
~ “As Time Goes By”, Casablanca

I have a hard time believing that Si and Tanard ever stop laughing. They can’t even fight without laughing – he will put his finger up her nose. How’s that for romance? They do everything together. From what I can tell, this consists of going for walks, going to bars and restaurants, and watching the League. Tanard will come up with quotes from just about anywhere so you’d better be up on your pop culture references.Speaking of, these two met in a bar about two years ago. He was wearing a Ninja Turtles shirt; she was in plaid (which Tanard still confuses with flannel). He stared at her for a while, mesmerized, but was too shy to make a ...
