Ashley + Kevin: a Not Engagement Session all over Philadelphia

Engagement

Some go the traditional route of engagement then engagement session then wedding… No one ever said that was the way you had to do it!

You might remember Ashley from a modeling shoot earlier this summer. She came back for more but brought her main squeeze, Kevin with her for some not-yet-engaged engagement pictures. She and Kevin are moving to Atlanta and they wanted to be able to bring a little Philly with them to their new home. I adore this couple. They are so much fun. Ashley is beautiful and so relaxed in front of the camera and Kevin is simply awesome with a quick wit and a great smile.

We had a fantastic extended “engagement”/couples session that took us all around the city.

We met up at 30th Street Train Station. This spot was important to them because they had spent a good deal of the last few years apart while Kevin was in DC and Ashley was up in Philadelphia. 30th St. Station held a special place for them.



Our next stop was Delancey Place. It was just a beautiful tree-lined street in Old City (or is this Center City?) that Ashley loved that felt supremely “Philly” with its beautiful townhomes.



Onwards to Rittenhouse Square!


Then we stopped on Broad Street in front of City Hall for a little bit of affection. Ashley knows this spot well since we practically stopped traffic there a few months ago.


And how can you do a true Philadelphia engagement session without a quick stop off at Love Park? I told you they were fun!


Kevin recommended this field with a view of Philly’s skyline so we could get both city and a bit of green. They changed into their Georgetown Hoyas garb as tribute to their alma mater.


We wandered down the classic Ben Franklin Parkway for some shots with the flags and City Hall again in the background.



We got to our final stop at Swann Fountain in Logan Square (which is a circle, strangely enough) while we still had some light and amazing clouds. They were down for getting wet and I was absolutely tickled pink. Ever since I learned that people could actually get into these public fountains I knew I had to get pictures of it!

I love this series…





And this final picture is easily one of my favorites from the day. So hot, so tender, so comfortable, so in love!

Thank you both so, so much! I cannot wait to shoot the wedding, whenever that may be!

Alexis + Nick: Engagement Session in Old City Philadelphia
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/we ...
